JURASSIC WORLD – FALLEN KINGDOM (2018): The Things I Liked…

As was the case with Jurassic World (2015), I enjoyed Chris Pratt’s brand of charm in this  J.A. Bayona directed sequel Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom. Yet surprisingly even more than that, I really liked the screen time dedicated to the dinosaurs. In particular the way Bayona’s movie not only told us about the intelligence of the dinosaurs, but we got to see a well executed display of said intelligence.

Another key highlight is the final and unfortunate scenes on ‘the island’ towards the end. Particularly the way it reminded me of how the movie Kong – Skull Island (2017) made me feel. By this I mean both films are fun and thrilling but they also made me sad because the creatures in both movies were either existing / resting peacefully until human interference.

Just like in Jurassic World, in Fallen Kingdom Pratt and Howard’s character’s romantic connection was a plot device that I found myself unenthused by.  Particularly because it felt even more unnecessary this time round.

Definitely watch Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom, especially if you liked the first movie. It’s still quite fun overall and even more so if you like dinosaurs.

Happy Film Loving

Written / directed by Drew Pearce, Hotel Artemis is a new crime / action movie set in a -near future riot-torn version of LA.

Starring Jodie Foster, Sofia Boutella, Dave Bautista, Jeff Goldblum and Sterling K. Brown, the story ofHotel Artemis follows a nurse (Foster) who runs a secret members-only emergency room for criminals…

There’s quite a lot going on in this trailer yet no major stand out moments that have me super excited, even though the plot is unique. I remain hopeful though – because of Foster, Goldblum and serious badass Boutella.

Charlie Day, Zachary Quinto, Jenny Slate and Fatimah Hassan also star.

Hotel Artemis Release Dates: July 20th, 2018 (UK);

Directed by Roland Emmerich; starring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, William Fichtner, Bill pullman and Maika Monroe, the trailer for Independence Day – Resurgence has arrived…

When I watched the original movie, Independence Day (1996), I vaguely recall a young Will Smith’s famous charisma going a long way to making the film good.

This time round, aliens are once again coming to invade and destroy earth. Fingers crossed that we’ll all be impressed by more than just the special effects.

Release Date (s): June 24th, 2016 (US & UK)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂
