Jurassic World Movie Review (Released 2015)

Jurassic World become a blockbuster hit, out ranking Avengers by 30 million dollars in its box office debut. But what made this movie such a hit? Probably the loyal fans who remember the 1993 Jurassic Park movie and were eager to re-live the adventure of discovering the beauty and horrors the Jurassic franchise has to offer. Plus what child doesn’t like to watch realistic dinosaurs in action?

The movie was a pleasure to watch, don’t get me wrong, but I found the plot a little too premature, as if it was made in 1993 instead of 2015. The plot retains the same flow previous films with: human makes dinosaur park, most vicious dinosaur escapes cage, and humans run for survival. Also the characters in the movie are not as emotionally connected with the audience as in Jurassic Park. The older Michell child was far too aloof about the environment around him. It was his first visit to Jurassic World yet the writers felt to need to make him “too cool” for such activities. Dinosaurs are cool no matter what your age and this is the age where stereotypes are losing their hold in the film industry. Finally, the end of Indominus Rex fell short of climatic. Mosasaurus should have been cut from the ending and the T- Rex should have kill Indominus and be Jurassic hero once again as done in Jurassic Park. The ending they chose seemed too convenient and didn’t respect the power of the dinosaurs shown in previous films. I did, however, love the relationship between Owen and Claire and the contrast between the polished life of human nature vs the ruggedness of wild nature. The movie does good to repeat the mistakes of the past and underestimate what the forces of nature can do along with what havoc can be born when man tries to take control over nature.

Despite the shaky plot and characters the movie itself depicted the future of the Jurassic franchise beautifully. The life like dinosaurs brought me back to when I use to want to be a velociraptor as a kid and I’m sure the new generation of children enjoyed the movie more then any of their parents could. Especially with Chris Pratt’s recent appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, I did hear a little girl say to her mom that Star Lord was going to ride a T-Rex.

I also noticed something small in the movie that apparently had an impact on the mental health community. Gray Mitchell throughout the film shows symptoms of autism yet the movie doesn’t officially announce that he has autism. In fact the developers stated they were going to make the character autistic but change their minds saying he would just be “odd”. Jurassic World did have an autistic audience and those who found out this information definitely felt the mental illness stigma. There is no reason why the movie couldn’t have raised awareness of those who are autistic and show how wonderful people with autism can be.

Though weaponized dinosaurs used for war seems outstretched, I believe the term Jurassic “World” is a foreshadowing of what is next to come in Jurassic World 2.

Deadpool Movie Review (2016)

Certain movies will take you to a whole new world of entertainment and they will glue audiences to their seats for the entire length of the movie. ‘Deadpool’ directed by Tim Miller falls in that category, and the quality of this flick has now started reflecting in the International Box Office. The film which stars Ryan Reynolds in the lead role has succeeded in impressing all kinds of audiences; thanks to that extra ordinary film making language and uncompromising style of story telling. Read down to know about the most unbiased review about ‘Deadpool’.

An engaging story line: As we all know, Deadpool is based on Marvel Comic’s character of the same name. The film which is touted to be the eighth installment in the X Men Series, showcases the life of Wade Wilson, a former Special Forces operative. He is now working as a mercenary. The life of Wade takes a new turn when the evil Ajax transforms him into ‘Deadpool’. The experiment conducted on Wade gives him accelerated healing power and an extra sense of humor. Now, with the help of his allies, Deadpool starts the battle against the evil powers who spoiled his life.

Impeccable narration: The main highlight of this movie is its extra ordinary narration. Director Tim Miller has paced the movie well, and there is not even a second of boredom in the whole flick. The lead hero is on a mission, and he has that extra ordinary sense of humor which will make the audiences love him. All the action is pretty fast in this movie, and as we all know, Deadpool is a little freak, and he will strike and tickle your spine on many occasions.

It should be noted that Deadpool is a little unconventional, and writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have narrated things by making him a real Superhero.

High voltage performance from lead actors: Deadpool is a movie which solely belongs to Ryan Reynolds. He has carried the role with perfection, and he deserves a special round of applause for his effort. The nuances of deadpool will make you fall in a state of laughter, and he is capable to make you smile as well. The other co stars, Morena Baccarin, T J Miller, Ed Skrein and Gina Carano have all delivered impeccable performances in the flick. Special effects are also top notch in this movie. Editing from Julian Clarke is slick to the core, and the background score is engaging.

The final call: Deadpool is a must watch movie. I do caution you in taking young children. Even though based off a comic it is very graphic and has some sexual scenes. If you are a Superhero action movie lover, then this is something you should not miss. It will make you thrilled and chilled, and you will enjoy each and every moment inside the movie theater. Many people are watching it more than two times, and this clearly indicates the quality of the movie. This crack Superhero has emerged successfully, and he will capture your hearts without any doubts. “Watch it and Enjoy the Heat”.
