Phil’s Top 5… Jurassic Park & Jurassic World films

Phil’s Top 5… Jurassic Park & Jurassic World films

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Jurassic Park/World movies…

 

5 – Jurassic Park 3
Totally forgettable instalment that retread the same ground once again. Added little to the franchise.

 

4 – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
It’s not a bad film but Fallen Kingdom is just dumb.  It’s also completely wrecked by the trailer which pretty much gives away everything.

 

3 – Jurassic World
Jurassic World was fun but I don’t rate it as much as most do.  Good action but dumb characters.

 

2 – Jurassic Park: The Lost World
I always felt Jurassic  Park: The Lost World was underrated.  Yes it’s fair from perfect but it has some excellant sequences and Spielberg on low gear is still better than most directors out there.

 

1 – Jurassic Park
Jurassic Park was superb and still delivers a story, characters and FX better than any other Jurassic World/Park movie.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is an odd film.  Narratively it’s a mess but it does manage to deliver a  few stand out sequences, even if the film overall fails to hang together.  That said it quickly felt like we’ve been here before as stupid characters do stupid things to drive the plot into a series of cheap pay offs, each of which were given away by the trailers (which also includes one of the last shots of the film).  As is the plague of 2018 blockbusters the CGI is woefully inconsistent, ranging from amazing to rather poor – often in the same scene.  Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom isn’t without some merit but if they are to make a third film in this trilogy, I hope they finally pay off the threads that have been teased since the second Jurassic Park film and finally keep the dinosaurs in our back yard.

All Things Film Blog The Blogs

Want to know what the critics think of the latest hot releases but don’t want to have to search for them?  Well look no further as we round up the reviews from 5 of the most influential sources for the latest BIG RELEASE movie.  This time out: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

 


“It’s a brave choice to literally blow up everything that’s come before but one that definitely pays off in Fallen Kingdom”- 8.4

 

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom says goodbye to the park for good, not just carrying the de-extincted dinos off the island but freeing itself from the genre trappings of the previous four films. ” –

 

 

“This is a Jurassic sequel that plays it both adrenaline-pumpingly huge and thrillingly small. A summer ride that will drive kids out of their minds, and maybe even give the parents nightmares.” – 4/5

 

 

“It’s the first “Jurassic” film to come close to pretending that it isn’t a ride at all, and as a result it ends up being just a so-so ride ”

 

 

 

” Even on first watch, though, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom impresses as a brave, beautiful and fun summer popcorn flick.” -3/5

Phil’s 2018 Preview & Look Back At 2017 Predictions…

Phil’s 2018 Preview & Look Back At 2017 Predictions…

Quick Review Year In Review

Phil’s Quick look at what’s wetting his whistle for the upcoming year in films…

Well 2017 saw Marvel driver big and DC retain it’s patchy record.  Horror stood out overall as most of the big Blockbusters fell short.  2018 has the promise to be even more mixed… so here’s the films I’m most looking forward to in 2017. And a few that I’d be happy to miss.

 

 

 

Most Excited:  Avengers: Infinity War
Like it or not this is the biggest film of the year and whilst I have reservations (Age Of Ultron wasn’t great and the trailer did little for this latest instalment did little for me) BUT Marvel have been building to this for over 10 years and with the talent involved both on screen and off this could be a once in a life time film.  Or Justice League Mark 2. Time will tell.

 

 

2. Deadpool 2
The original Deadpool was brilliant and by all accounts if the trailer is anything to go by this could be as good if not better.  Enter Cable to the X-Men universe and with all the returning faces from part one Deadpool could be the last great 18 rated film Fox makes if the merger with Disney goes ahead.

 

 

 

3. Black Panther
Marvel bring a more unconventional Superhero tale to the screen, and with an excellent trailer and Marvel’s near flawless 2017 record this has the ability to be something quiet special indeed.

 

4. Bohemian Rhapsody
Yes it’s had production issues and yes Singer isn’t a nice guy but with Dexter Fletcher taking over and with Queens backing this could be the film about the great Freddie Mercury that we have ALL been wait for.

 

5.  The Incredibles 2
The Incredibles was, er, Incredible and this belated sequel looks like it could be another smash hit for Pixar.  Lets just hope its more Toy Story 2 than Cars 2.

 

Bubbling Under: Tomb Raider (Good Trailer, great cast), Ant Man & The Wasp (Ant Man was great fun), The Predator (Shane Black + Predator = Hell Yes!), Mission Impossible 6 (These films tend to always be fun), The Happytime Murders (Brian Henson + Muppets = Heaven), The Purge: Island (LOVE the Purge Films), The Irishman (Scorsese teams with DeNiro & Pacino), Halloween (New sequel that ignores previous. With Carpenter’s blessing AND music)

Stinker Of The Year: Fifty Shades Freed
Yes I’ve watched BOTH Fifty Shades movies.  And yes BOTH have previously taken the WORST FILM of the year titles. Look this franchise has nothing.  Poor acting, poor direction and poor writing topped off with S&M so softcore you could see harder on Babestation. Thankfully this will bring this torrid series to an end and hopefully the careers of all involved.


Also Dreading: Solo – A Star Wars Story
 (fired directors, Ron Howard, total reshoots – this could be the first Disney Star Wars flop), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom  (Boring trailer and a sense of having done this before), Day of The Dead: Bloodline (please no), Ready Player One (Spielberg hasn’t made a truly interesting film for a while), X-Men: Dark Phoenix (X-Men films just don’t grab me anymore), Oceans 8 (Just WHY!), Scarface (Urban Scarface remake….a film NOBODY asked for), Pacific Rim: Uprising (God no)

So how did I do last year?

 

This is the time of the year when I look back at my picks of the good, the bad and the ugly from 2017 and see how close I was (or as it often is the case, how far!)…

 

For best: I tipped  Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Star Wars The Last Jedi, War For The Planet Of The Apes, T2: Trainspotting and John Wick Chapter 2 as my most anticipated of 2017.  Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was good but eclipsed by both Spiderman Homecoming and Thor Ragnorok.   War For The Planet Of The Apes was good but fell a bit short of the rave reviews it was given. T2: Trainspotting was one of my top 5 films of the year (and film of the year for almost half of 2017) whilst John Wick 2 was a bit shit. Star Wars The last Jedi meanwhile.  As for the rest?  Silence, Spiderman: Homecoming, Alien: Covenant and Baywatch were all either great or enjoyable.

 

As for the Stinkers? Transformers: The Last Knight was picked as the stinker of the year but eventually was pipped by Fifty Shades Darker. Both were appalling. Wonder Woman was actually mostly excellent, Blade Runner 2049 ended up as one of teh years best and Logan knocked it out the park. XXX: Return Of Xander Cage was dumb fun but The Mummy, Power Rangers and Cars 3 all were in the worst of the year.

 

So here’s to 2017… see you again next year!
