    The Lost World: Jurassic Park

    ★★★

    Definitely not as good as the first film, but I honestly think that up until the last 20 minutes it’s really not that bad- Has a neat concept that’s mostly well executed, some really cool moments and set pieces, the special effects are terrific, especially for the time, and it’s Spielberg, so it’s at the very least competently directed.

    Orson Welles's 1941 masterpiece Citizen Kane is a monumental film, one where just the sheer idea of talking about it is daunting. It's
    a film measured by great importance, constantly argued as being the greatest motion picture ever made. Weather you agree or disagree with this, it's undeniable how impactful Welles's feature directing debut has been on cinema since it's initial release.
    The title alone has almost become a phrase in itself, essentially used as an alternative way of calling…
