Jurassic Park was one of those groundbreaking movies that changed the way we thought about movies. For those of us that were children when it came out, it blew us away and is forever ingrained in our minds. I can still remember being a ten year old pretending to be a raptor running around my front yard (and no, I am not ashamed of that). Then there was the Lost World, not as groundbreaking as Jurassic Park, but a good film none the less. Lastly was Jurassic Park 3, a movie that I admit I never watched, receiving mixed reviews and starting to forge away from a mixture of CGI and animatronics towards a more encompassing embracement of CGI. It’s been 14 years since that last installment, and Amblin Entertainment along with Legendary Pictures decided it was time to pursue another movie for this franchise, and got superstar Chris Pratt to play the lead. Here’s my spoiler filled review of an attempt at rebooting the Jurassic Park universe.
Mornin’ Evil Geeks!
Last night Jimmy Kimmel gave fanboys around the world a treat with the first full-length trailer for Marvel’s newest sci-fi cosmic flick “Guardians of the Galaxy!” There’s been tons of speculation around not only the Evil Lair, but the entire internet about this movie and many people think that Marvel is really betting on a longshot with this one here, but I gotta say after seeing the trailer I’m definitely excited!!! Check it out here…
So, I totally buy Chris Pratt as Starlord and from what you see the comedy doesn’t seem forced. Although I thought that Batista from WWE would suck, he looks like a good Drax at least and I’ve always thought that Zoe Saldana could work as Gamora. Groot seems like Groot and Vin Diesel can’t really screw up the lines since all he says is “I am GROOT.” Add to that the simple fact that Rocket Raccoon is the man, er uh, mammal (played by Bradley Cooper) and you’ve got a decent team of slackers who just might get the job done!!! Also, Karen Gillan (of Amy Pond fame) looks badass as Nebula too. The only thing that I wish is that we got a better look at Ronan the Accuser who will be played by Lee Pace, but the Nova Corps made up for it. (Calling in the last scene that Nova makes his debut btw!)
All in all, it looks fun and action packed which works for me, so kudos to Marvel for taking a gamble in this franchise, which looks to me will set up their cosmic side of the house and eventually get us to the Infinity Gems. (But in case this sucks, they’ll be raking in the dough from Cap 2, Spidey 2, and X-Men I forget what number their on, so don’t feel too bad for them…just kidding, this’ll be good!) After you check out the trailer make sure to sound off in the comments to let us know what you think. Guardians of the Galaxy opens worldwide on August 1st, 2014.
See ya at the Movies!
