I saw Jurassic World about a week ago.  It was pretty cool.  Especially since they made some callbacks to the original film:  the cartoons, the statue of John Hammond, the old park facilities, the t-shirt, and the geneticist in the lab.  It was good to see some sense of continuity expressed from that first film carried into this new movie.  And that's refreshing since we seem to be living in the age of the reboot.  Finding a way to pay some homage to the previous films only seemed to help, here.

That being said, this was popcorn fare.  The characters were okay, but not incredibly well developed.  I think Chris Pratt is officially an action star following this movie and Guardians of the Galaxy.  And for the life of me, I thought that the female lead was Jessica Chastain and not Bryce Dallas Howard.  Then this thing came out where people are CONSTANTLY mistaking the two of them.  Glad I wasn't the only one!

The stars of the show are clearly the dinosaurs.  The increased development of the Velociraptors and the pack psychology was an interesting angle.  And Vincent D'onofrio's plan to weaponize them for use by InGen's private military branch?  That plot point was something straight out of current events.  And bringing InGen back from the previous films is another good callback in the Jurassic Park continuity.  But the Indominous Rex?  Pretty badass.  That thing was just MEAN, killing all those herbivore dinosaurs for no reason.  But I have to say, the fight between the I-Rex and the Ankylosaurus was pretty awesome.

I can't see myself purchasing this movie on BluRay, but it was great to check out on a hot summer afternoon.

Jurassic World

Fun movie, probably moreso at the theater than it would be at home.  Some of the elements seemed forced just to make it feel like the original.

No, didn't know that.  I don't remember the Mad Max's that well.  They all sorta run together.

Mad Max: Fury Road

I heard this movie was really deep and symbolic.  It seemed like one big long chase scene to me.

I thought so too, and it was like they took a lot of pieces from the old movies and remade it into this one.  Did you know the bad guy was toe cutter from the original mad max?  I also think the dwarf was the one from thunderdome. 

 I wasn't expecting much, figured it would just be a chase movie so I enjoyed it.  I thought the fire guitar was pretty cool.

Thanks, I looked it up.

I think I remember that incident in the news when it happened.  Just didn't realize the connection to the movie.
I know. It crazy. It happened just before they finished making the movie.

Is the "Sniper Trial" I see on CNN have anything to do with the movie?
Yes absolutely, well part of it.  Most was about his journey there and his tours. If you want to know how I'll messge you to keep from spoiling it for others.

I didn't have a problem with the sound, I just thought it was way too long. A lot of unecassary in between stuff just getting to where they we're going.

I heard some of those complaints about the sound during Interstellar.  Director Christopher Nolan has acknowledged those concerns about the sound and said that it was mixed that way in a very deliberate fashion.

Interstellar

Solid movie, good tension, but some of the sound effects and score were so loud you couldn't hear important dialogue.  Also have to check your logic at the door as far as the space/time continuum.
