Jurassic Park (1993) – A Rewatched Quick Capsule Review

Jurassic Park (1993) – A Rewatched Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Jurassic Park was made almost 25 years ago and it still, for the most park, feels as fresh as if it was released yesterday.   Even the CGI, which was at the forefront all those years ago, still mostly holds up and the combination of practical and digital work means that the dinosaurs still feel real.  Its odd that Jurassic Park has never been topped by any of its sequels – in quality or FX – and Spielberg’s less is more approach (see Jaws) means that the money shots are really something to savour.  It’s also that for all the magic on screen Spielberg puts relatable humans at the film core.  It’s a stunning film and demands a rewatch.

Best Bit: T-Rex Attacks

Worth a Rewatch: Yes

Jurassic World (2015) – A Revisited Quick Capsule Review

Jurassic World (2015) – A Revisited Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
So the best film ever made? No.  Not even the best film made about CGI dinosaurs. In a summer of hyper, critical love and box office smashes, Jurassic World does what it needs to and returns all the same thrills in similar types of movies that you’ve seen in the last 20+ years since Spielberg delivered his Jurassic Park. But that’s kinda the problem.  Jurassic World does little new, little interesting or little standout.  The CGI is okay, the script at times poor and the actors exist only to move you to the next CGI set piece.  It feels at times like a computer game being played that you get to watch.  Hell whatever I say however, you’ll see it anyway but this could have been so much better.

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

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.

“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

Kong Skull Island – A Quick Capsule Review

Kong Skull Island – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Kong Skull Island is a damn fun film.  It’s not going to trouble the Oscars (Okay MAYBE it’s Effects. Maybe) but I’ve had much worse times at the cinema and even found myself smiling on more than one occasion.  From Jackson’s Colonel Kurtz, to Hiddleston’s audition for Bond to the camp script, OTT monster vs monster smackdowns and stupid plans it ticks all the boxes you want from a Summer blockbuster and for once it’s lack of Michale Bay style editing means most of what happens can be seen and enjoyed.  So taken for what it is, I highly recommend Kong as a good way to spend time in the cinema.

MV5BNjI5OTQ0MDQxM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzcwNjMyNTE@._V1_SX214_AL_Spy

Director: Paul Feig

Actors Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Jude Law, Miranda Hart

McCarthy plays an overweight desk bound CIA agent who is called up for a dangerous mission when her action man partner (Law) is apparently killed by  Rose Byrne’s bitch on wheels super villain.  I have to admit that when i read the reviews for this, i was quite intrigued to see it – however after 2 hours of limp comedy, buffoonish pratfalls, a screeching McCarthy and crap action – i really wished i hadnt bothered. To say the least i hated this  with the kind of vengeance that  i only usually reserve for a Michael bay movie.

After seeing four of her films, I simply fail to see the appeal of Melissa McCarthy – OK i’ll admit she can act, but does she really have to play the same sweary obnoxious character in EVERY film she appears in?  Also  – who in the hell does this Paul Feig person think he is?  – Oh yes that’s right he’s the comedy director of the moment, the one that mainstream audiences flock to whenever his name is on a poster, same as they did with Reitman, Landis and Apatow  – and look what happened to them! One can only hope that his Ghost-busters reboot can cut the mustard or i fear that we will have seen the last of him.

I will however say one thing for Spy – it does feature a very funny turn from Jason Statham, who really should concentrate more  on comedy or (as we saw with Furious 7) bad guy roles, and it is he alone who saves this generic rubbish from being the one star dud that it deserves to be.

Jurassic World
Director: Colin Trevorrow
Actors: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’onofrio, B.D Wong
After a number of false starts (i.e running, screaming, death) John Hammond’s dream of a dinosaur theme park has finally become reality in the form of Jurassic World. Situated on the island of Isla Nublar  – it attracts thousands of visitors every year, but in an effort to keep the profits flowing, its owners have created a new attraction – the Indominous Rex – a hydrid dinosaur that is even bigger and badder than the T-Rex.  Unfortunately, said beastie is also highly intelligent, mean as a snake, and filled with a burning desire to escape its captive surroundings as soon as possible – which naturally it does – with somewhat destructive results.
In 1992 Steven Spielberg gave us Jurassic Park, which i still believe to be the last brilliant blockbuster he directed  before going all serious with Schindler’s List, then trying and failing  to get it all back with the last (and deeply crap) Indiana Jones film and various other misfires like Minority Report and Tin Tin.  Featuring astounding ground breaking effects and relentless action, Jurassic Park set the bar so high that most filmmakers to this day are still trying to emulate its success – it is without doubt, one of the greatest films ever made.  Sadly the same cannot be said of the two sequels that followed. The Lost World was certainly entertaining in parts but mostly average, and the less said about the Joe Johnson directed Jurassic Park 3 the better. Mercifully the same cannot be said of Jurassic World  – which manages to not only crap all over the previous two sequels but almost manages to give Spielberg’s original a run for its money as well.
To begin with, the casting of Chris Pratt is a stroke of genius. He was fantastic in last years Guardians of The Galaxy and here firmly cements his leading man status with a great turn as grizzled Raptor wrangler Owen Grady  – a total bad ass hero type that he absolutely nails to a T –  and on the evidence here the guy is surely a shoo in as the new Indiana Jones. Bryce Dallas Howard also does well as the corporate damsel in distress type – proving to be just as adept in the action stakes as she is fending off Pratt’s nefarious flirting – however the fact that she manages to do a Usain Bolt type sprint, wearing high heels does beggar belief.  Kudos must go too to director Colin Trevorrow (Safety not Guaranteed  – see it asap – superb) who keeps proceedings going at a rare old pace, is obviously a filmmaker who plainly knows what audiences want from a big summer  film  – which is rollicking good action -and  to his credit delivers this in spades – and then some.
Special mention must also be given to Industrial Light and Magic’s incredible dino effects  -particularly  the Indominous Rex and the Velociraptors , which are simply a marvel of CGI ingenuity – no more so than in the absolutely thrilling climax.
On the negative side i did have some quibbles  – at its heart the story really doesn’t break much new ground  and in places annoyingly copies a few of the of the original films character subplots. However these are somewhat minor complaints in what is a cracking piece of cinematic gold – in short i absolutely loved  this film and i thoroughly recommend you see it asap.
Wonderful stuff.
