  • A Better Tomorrow II

    A Better Tomorrow II

    ★★★★

    The sequel to John Woo's A Better Tomorrow II. It picks off from the original, where Sung Tse-ho gets released from prison and helps his brother Kit investigate the operations his former mentor Lung Sei, after which they must protect him after he is framed for murder and has his daughter slain. Chow Yun-Fat returns as Ken, Mark's identical twin brother who could only be the most badass restaurant owner of all time. His addition seems a bit silly, but…

    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★½

    It's about time. Jurassic Park has ALWAYS been one of those movies that I've been ashamed to admit about not seeing. I can never forgive myself for holding off for so many years because this was just fantastic. It's definitely up there with Spielberg's greatest achievements.

    I can't say much about it that already hasn't been said, but as far as movie premises go it is one of the most intriguing. As the ability to resurrect and clone dinosaurs based…
