Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in 3D

More Dinosaurs… It’s been over three years since the last installment “Jurassic World”. The town, village and area were destroyed by the Dinosaurs that were in containment there during that time.

Fast forward to today the land is mostly a jungle where the Dinosaurs that survived feed on themselves. Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) are approached to mount a rescue to save the remaining Dinosaurs from extinction. Owen wants to find “Blue” his lead Raptor who has been missing since the fallout started in “Jurassic World”. A team is assembled and they all head to the island, but a volcano erupts and causes a stampede. The story unfolds from there…

“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom lacks punch and dynamite. The story is just ho-hum. There are a few laughs and you will find yourself rooting for the Dinosaurs at times. The bad guys are just plain boring. There are a few twists and turns, but those are not enough to make the movie edge of your seat entertainment.

A bit more thought should have been given to this installment. This installment is by far the worst one. That in its self is very disappointing.

This is a 2 Star Movie!!

Jurassic World: 3D The IMAX Experience

Finally the long awaited next installment in the Jurassic Park Series has finally arrived!!

“Jurassic World” is a thrilling ride!! It’s definitely edge of your seat entertainment. The cinematography and special effects are very good and there is a lot of action.

The absolute best elements of “Jurassic World” are actor Chris Pratt and the T-Rex’s. The remaining cast-of-characters are very underdeveloped. Bryce Dallas Howard appears to me as if she is afraid to act or show any emotion in the movie. The story is a bit sketchy. You are not really sure what the plot is.

Although the characters are from the famed writer Michael Creighton’s books, his stamp is not as apparent as in previous installments.
If you are a fan of the Jurassic Park franchise, by all means do see “Jurassic World”. It’s a definite must see in IMAX, but not 3D.

This is a 3 Star Movie!

Focus

“Focus” is about a con-artist who takes on an apprentice, they become romantically involved, sensing things were getting too deep he breaks it off and then years later she gets in the way of a his biggest score.

I am sure the concept on paper reads well, but on the big screen this movie was lost to me. There were way too many “twists” and not enough “turns”. The ending was even weird.

There was about 25 minutes of real intrigue and then I was bored.

“Focus” was billed as a Drama/Comedy. I failed to find anything funny about the movie.

It’s been a while since Will Smith has made a movie that I liked. I guess that drought will continue.

This is a 2 Star Movie!!
