Blu-ray Review: ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2018

Jurassic World‘ burst onto the scene as a sequel/reboot hybrid film that made over $1.6 billion at the box office. Of course, there would be more, but at what cost? ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘ takes place a year or so after the events of the first film where the island where the theme park and dinosaurs were on are ravaged by an exploding volcano. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard team up again to save the dinosaurs, however they are misled by a maniacal businessman who has other plans for the dinosaurs, mostly being selling them at an auction to warlords across the country in hopes of turning these dinosaurs into military killing machines with freaking lasers attached to their heads for a profit. I’m not making this up.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a huge waste of time. The first Jurassic World was light on story and by no means great, but it had a healthy dose of mindless entertainment. The sequel though, wasn’t even enjoyable. Jurassic Park is one of my favorite movies of all time. It was the first PG-13 movie I ever saw in a movie theater and I spent years playing with dinosaurs after seeing it. I love these kind of movies, but this sequel is just so, so bad. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom fumbled one of the easiest plots to execute in Hollywood: Have dinosaurs attack people while Chris Pratt charms the audience.

Film Review: ‘A United Kingdom’!!

by Janet White on Feb 24th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

A United Kingdom - Date

 

Set in the late 1940s London and the country of Botswana (formerly the British Protectorate of Bechuanaland),  A United Kingdom, is a love story in the spirit of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Society has many ways to try to separate a couple that crosses the barrier and exemplify love is love. Whether it says you cannot be that person because they are from the wrong family, different caste, or, as in this case, of different races, people of vision for a better world have struggled against Society. Sir Seretse Goitsebeng Maphiri Khama (David Oyelowo), was soon to become King of Botswana when he first laid eyes on Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), a white British woman. The love they come to have for each can either cripple the nation of Botswana or be its champion. Read the rest of this entry »

Monkeys, Tina Fey, and a series of calamitous frolicking couldn’t be anything, but a delightful time.  Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom follows Maya, a lowborn female monkey, through her journey to challenge the caste system.  The highborn, The Sisterhood (Queens), three female monkeys with red splattered faces, is given the best food, lodging, grooming, obedience, and fear.  Slightly lower than The Queens is Raja, the highest born alpha male monkey.  Far underneath The Queens and Raja and still other levels of lieutenants and random monkeys is sweet Maya.  Like any human would, Maya endeavors to make a better life for herself and was fearless in her pursuit of it.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Premiere Of FX's "American Horror Story: Coven"

 

In the wake of wickedly successful series like ‘Game of Thrones‘ that prove period pieces are bankable projects, BBC has set the cast for their newest series epic, ‘The Last Kingdom‘. Bernard Cornwell is the author of at least 8 novels that comprise ‘The Saxon Stories‘, the first in the series being ‘The Last Kingdom‘. The series is a continuing historical novel about 9th and 10th century Britain. We meet Uhtred Ragnarson, born a Saxon then kidnapped by raiding Danes who raise him from the age of 10, teaching him how to be a warrior. When his Danish father is killed, Uhtred joins King Alfred of Wessex. The series takes history and slightly embellishes events, details and people, so that what is presented is not a straight true historical story, but a marriage of historical fact and fictional characters.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Moonrise Kingdom’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

universal-studios-home-entertainment-moonrise-kingdom

Wes Anderson is back to the live action format with his new quirky coming of age film, Moonrise Kingdom.  I can always tell a Wes Anderson film from any other films.  The camera angles, the oddball characters, the musical cues with the slow-motion action, and how every character puts their emotions on the frontline makes up the guts and glory of a Wes Anderson film.  Some people might find all this obnoxious, but Moonrise Kingdom, with its two tween stars, everything seems to work flawlessly.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Good news everyone.  Houston native, Wes Anderson’s new film ‘Moonrise Kongdom’ will open the 65th Cannes Film Festival in France.  It’s still uncertain if the film will play in or out of the competition.  I’m betting it will be in the competition.  Cannes this year starts May 16th, and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ not only will open Cannes but will open in French Theatres that same day.
