I'm writing about what I've seen the past few days. I watch a lot of Movies and TV shows so I figured I let you guys know what is worth seeing in my opinion. Let me know what you guys watched recently in the comments and your opinion on them! Always looking for a new movie to watch.
Jurassic World (2015)
Directed by: Colin Trevorrow
Produced by: Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley
Written by: Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow
Starring: Chris Pratt as Owen Grady, Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing, Ty Simpkins as Gray Mitchell, Nick Robinson as Zach Mitchell, B.D. Wong as Dr. Henry Wu, Irrfan Khan as Simon Masrani, Vincent D'Onofrio as Vic Hoskins, Jake Johnson as Lowery Cruthers, Omar Sy as Barry, Lauren Lapkus as Vivian Krill, Brian Tee as Katashi Hamada, Katie McGrath as Zara Young, Judy Greer as Karen Mitchell, Andy Buckley as Scott Mitchell and Eric Edelstein as Nick
Plot: It picks up 22 years after the first Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar, where a fully-functioning dinosaur theme park has been operating for 10 years. The parks scientist create a genetically modified dinosaur called, Indominus rex which is extremely smart, big, and vicious. The Indominus rex eventually escapes and complete chaos breaks out on the island.
My Thoughts: I went to the movies to see Jurassic world with my girlfriend this week. She is a total horror buff and has not seen the original movies, (which is pretty insane to me...) so she was not as pumped about seeing this movie as I was. However, by the end of it she kept whispering to me how awesome this movie is and how happy she was she came to see it. Extremely entertaining and defiantly worthy of its predecessors. Many well placed Easter eggs towards the original Jurassic Park that gave me goose pumps. I'm a huge fan of the first two movies, and I "liked" the 3rd one. So, maybe my opinion is skewed. I believe it was a great movie that gave new life to a dying franchise. Go see it, well worth the price of the seeing it in the theaters.
Ted 2 (2015)
Directed by: Seth MacFarlane
Produced by: Jason Clark, John Jacobs, Seth MacFarlane and Scott Stuber
Written by: Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild
Starring: Seth MacFarlane as Ted ,Amanda Seyfried as Samantha Leslie Jackson, Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett, Jessica Barth as Tami-Lynn, Giovanni Ribisi as Donny and Morgan Freeman as Patrick Meighan
Plot: Ted finds out that he is considered property and not a person. The movies follows Ted and John and their newly appointed lawyer on their quest to seek justice and to get Ted to be considered a human being in the eyes of the law.
My Thoughts: It was pretty entertaining. I would't waste your money on an expensive movie ticket to see it on the big screen. However, it is worth seeing at some point. There are some pretty ridiculous scenes that make the movie. I defiantly enjoyed it more then the first movie. It was extremely long and dragged out though. I like Seth MacFarlene but when it comes to his movies I always feel like there is a missing an element to them. I still can not place my finger on what exactly the element is but it isn't all there for me. All in all I would take the time to watch it but not worth seeing in the theaters.
Directed by: Karl Golden
Produced by: Ian Brady, Stephen Salter, Robert Walak
Written by: Chris Coghill
Starring: Jack O'Connell as Dylan, Zawe Ashton as Sarah, Stephen Wight as Gary Mac, Henry Lloyd-Hughes as Matt, Sam Hazeldine as Maurice, Emily Barclay as Claire, Dean Andrews as Sargent Thompson, Ben Batt as John Anderson, Fergus O'Donnell as Tommy, Richard Riddell as Craig, Craig Izzard as Doorman, Perry Fitzpatrick as Chris and Tom Meeten as Captain Acid
Plot: The film follows two best friends named Dylan (Jack O'Connell) and Matt (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) that live in Manchester in 1990. They frequent underground raves. When the scene is just taking off in the UK, they eventually get in on the growing industry and start promoting their own raves. They quickly rise in the ranks of the underground promoting business. It follows them from the exclusive VIP rooms of London clubs to the outrageous parties in Ibiza super-villas and the hedonism of Amsterdam. However, as they acquire the fame, money and status, Matt and Dylan's friendship starts to fade. As they grow apart the more darker side of the scene starts to take notice as well.
My Thoughts: It was pretty entertaining in my opinion. It was a easy watch, decent cinematography, writing, and acting. The soundtrack was very good. However, It was very predictable. Not to much going on in the film itself. You do not get to emotionally invested in the characters so when stuff does go wrong it is not to exciting/intense. It is a good rainy day movie at best. Definitely would not watch it again anytime soon.
