From blockbuster disaster to horribly depressing, I am not on a roll when it comes to movies these days. After watching all the Terminator movies I had developed a healthy respect for Arnold, so when I heard he just came out with a ZOMBIE movie I was all about it. Maggie is the story of Arnold and his teenage daughter dealing with a bite from a zombie and the gradual transition to zombiehood.
Successfully completing my mission to watch all of the Terminator movies, I can finally bring you my reviews of the most recent two installments in the series. A combination of explosions, psychopathic futuristic machines, and time travel science fiction, I can see why a lot of people love these movies. And the pounding drums of the main (albeit simple) theme song instill both a feeling of fear, anticipation, and determination. Here’s my take on these last two films, from a Lilith perspective.
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.
