Besides reminding me to be grateful that humans no longer share planet earth with dinosaurs, Jurassic World has officially awakened me to Chris Pratt’s super charismatic magic. A magic when combined with a good script among other key elements, the result is a very entertaining movie.
I’ve never been especially into dinosaurs myself but director Colin Trevorrow’s movie really is a fun ride. One that features a good number of wow moments. Impressive moments courtesy of great special effects and a beautiful overall visual style.
Also starring Bryce Dallas Howard and Nick Robinson, Jurassic World is set on the original site of Jurassic Park where a genetically modified hybrid dinosaur has now been created. The films true action really begins when said dinosaur escapes and commences a very well-captured killing spree.
My overall favourite thing about this movie is pretty much every scene featuring Pratt. You know, on account of his charisma as well as good dialogue. There’s also all the scenes featuring talented and adorable young actor Ty Simpkins who plays Gray.
As for the things that spoilt this movie just a little for me, there’s the scene where Gray and hisbrother Zack (Robinson) are able to light a match even though I could have sworn that matches are impossible to light when wet. Did I perhaps miss a part where it was revealed that the matches were contained in a waterproof case? The second thing I didn’t quite buy into is Pratt and Dallas Howard’s characters as a couple. On the other hand, there are many unexpected couples in real life too, so…
You’ve likely already seen this movie but if not, do so for the fun ride, shooting style, that Pratt magic and especially if you love / or once loved dinosaurs.
Inspired by a true story, Gold, the latest movie starring Matthew McConaughey, Edgar Ramirez and Bryce Dallas Howard is all about one man’s challenging American dream. A dream of find gold and the even more difficult task of keeping it once he lucks out and does…
Directed by Stephen Gaghan, I’ll be watching to see McConaughey in yet another new light. I also want to know precisely all the ways that people are going to come for his character; that is once they get the distinctwhiff of billions and billions of dollars. The phrase more money, more problems is so very fitting.
I couldn’t help but get a The Wolf Of Wall Street (2013) vibe from this railer. Such is the depth of the mark Scorcese’s great movie has left on my brain.
Toby Kebbell, Corey Stoll and Bill Camp also star.
You wish for a movie about a kid that grows up in a jungle/ forrest; a boy who manages to survive against the odds thanks to his animal friends and you get three in one year. First the Jungle Book (2016), then The Legend Of Tarzan (2016) and now Pete’s Dragon (2016)…
Starring Oakes Fegley (who I have to say kind of reminds me of a young Cara Delevigne) Robert Redford and Bryce Dallas Howard, it will be interesting to see just how different all three films are considering the similarities they share. Something tells me that at least once, all of them will have a moment where the young protagonist from each movie jumps off a cliff as per 1:11 in the above trailer.
Oona Laurence, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Isiah Whitlock Jr. and Marcus Henderson also star.
