    Jurassic World Dominion

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    4 years after the dinosaurs were released into the wild, the world is learning to cope with them, but this movie isn't really interested in that. Instead, this movie is about a Bio company who engineer locusts to kill any crop not made by their company, sending the world into a food crisis that will starve millions. Meanwhile, the same bio company steals the Raptor blue's baby (named Beta) as well as clone girl from the last movie who Claire…

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    3 Years after the previous film, Claire and Owen (Now AGAIN broken up....) are convinced to return to the island to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from a volcanic eruption to bring them to a sanctuary, however, the men they are working with double cross them, and actually take the animals to a spooky mansion in order to auction them off for Millions. This movie, often considered the worst of the franchise, is not actually that bad. The beginning is exciting,…

  • Jurassic World

    Jurassic World

    ★★★½

    Years after the original trilogy, InGen has finally succeeded in building a working Dinosaur Theme park, but when people are no longer impressed with "normal" Dino's, the genetics team creates a new Dinosaur which combines the most ferocious elements of the others, and predictably it escapes and wreaks havoc. While the film is very fun and enjoyable to watch, there are many story beats that just seem sooooo bad and take away from the experience, among those being: The Dinosaur…

  • Jurassic Park III

    Jurassic Park III

    ★★★½

    When a teenage boy is lost while PARASAILING near Dino island, his parents essentially kidnap Alan Grant and his research assistant Billy under false pretenses in order to use their expertise to navigate the island and find their son. While there, the T-Rex is quickly nerfed in favor of the new baddie, Spinosaurus. While this film is the shortest and worst performing of all the Jurassic movies, I actually found it to be fairly enjoyable. The Dinosaurs, regrettably, continue in…

    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★½

    When the owner of a new Dinosaur theme park named "Jurassic Park" invites paleontologist Alan Grant and Paleo-Botanist Ellie Sattler to inspect it for approval, he hopes they will find it accurate and enjoyable, however, when a disgruntled employee attempts to sabotage the park, the dinosaurs escape and put everyone in danger, including the owners two young grandchildren. Groundbreaking for the time and boasting effects that, while starting to show their age, largely still hold up nearly 3 decades later,…

  • Westfront 1918

    Westfront 1918

    ★★★★½

    Taking place mostly on the front lines of the German side of the West Front of WWI, a group of soldiers struggles with the ravages of war, trench warfare, missing home, and the reality of starvation back home in their cities (forcing some, including the wife of a soldier, to resort to prostituting themselves just to afford meat) as the war rages on. Possibly the best work to date by Pabst, his transition into talkies is done with superb skill…

After selling the crop for far less than expected due to a crash, Lem marries the Waitress and returns home with her, both…
