Jurassic-World-Fallen-Kingdom-2018-movie-poster

Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom directed by J.A Bayona, produced by Legendary Entertainment and starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard is the sequel to the 2015 franchise rebirth film. This film takes place three years after the events of Isla Nublar. This time around the thriving dinosaurs are once again threatened toward extinction with the sudden eruption of a large volcano on the island.

Society has now tried to incorporate the fight of animals’ rights to include the once extinct dinosaurs. Claire, now an advocate for dinosaur rights is made an offer she can’t refuse as she is recruited to help rescue the dinosaurs from the deserted island. She then reaches out for her ex-love interest and raptor trainer, Owen to help with the rescue mission.

Before you know it, the two find themselves intertwined in a vicious plot that includes genetics specialists and other scientists that are out to weaponize the dinosaurs and potentially make billions of dollars in profit off the animals.

If you’re looking for a good action adventure to kick off the official summer season, then Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom is the film for you. This movie is a lot of fun to watch even though you are already going to expect certain elements when it comes to the franchise film.

I adore Chris Pratt in this role, but I also like Bryce Dallas Howard. I do feel like there was a little bit of disconnect between the two characters this time around but maybe that was intentional since the two did not end up together after the first film. There are some interesting new twists in this movie and some cool new dinosaurs.

When you really think about what science has become, it really is scary and not much entertaining. But I must say that the film was entertaining and exciting. The effects were better than ever, and you can definitely see how much CGI and digital film technology has improved the franchise and industry as a whole. I was very impressed by the visual representation throughout the movie.

Jeff Goldblum did make a cameo appearance, but like many moviegoers, I was disappointed in his lack of screen time. I wanted him to have a more prominent role in the film, but I understand the concept of infusing some of the past without losing the purpose of bringing the franchise into the future.

This movie should be on your summer watch list. I gave this film 4 stars.

Last night’s episode of the Walking Dead season finale was a total disappointment. Last week’s episode with Merle should have been the finale. I really thought that Rick and the group were going to leave the prison. There is no way that they can rebuild their lives there. The battle with the Governor’s group at the prison was uneventful. I don’t understand why Maggie and Glen were the only one shooting and how no one got killed when the Governor led his people deeper into the prison.
Everyone made a big deal on Twitter when Carl shot the Woodbury boy but I agree with his character. He was doing what he had to do. You can’t trust them and who is to say that he was not going to shoot Carl and Hershal. Carl has had to deal with a lot that children usually don’t have to deal with in these times, so if he goes too soft now he could get killed. I like the point he made to his father when he mentioned Dale.

The whole thing with Milton and Andrea annoyed me. She was so stupid when she stopped trying to free herself to talk to Milton. She knew that the Governor had injured him enough that he was not going to survive. Andrea spent too much time on nonsense.

I was not impressed with the make-up job that was done on Milton. His transformation should have been done in stages and more dramatic.

After the Governor and his gang retreated from the prison he goes mad and shoots his men when one of them speaks up stating that they will not participate in a slaughter. The Governor and his two right hand men walk away.

Rick and his group believe that they have defeated the Governor and they go back to Woodbury to find Andrea. They run into a survivor and she tells them she witnesses the Governor kill in cold blood. Rick,Glen, Michone and Daryl go back and stumbles upon Tyreesse. He learns that the Governor is psycho, and questions the whole situation involving the Governor, which should determine his place in season four. Andrea kills herself because Walker Milton bites her. Rick returns to the prison with the Woodbury survivors. What a big mistake, there are too many weak people that Rick is now responisble for even though he claims that he is not the group’s leader, he is more so now than before. I guess the new people will be the new victims in season four. More people have to die. I thought WD season four finale was going to go out with a bang! ANNOYING ANDREA IS FINALLY DEAD! YAY I hope that the new season will be a promising one. I still can’t get over how bad the episode is.

              Everyone starts their day just like any other day.  You get up, get ready and head out for work.  You say your goodbyes to your husband or wife kissing them before you part ways.   You hug your son and daughter and wait for them to go into the elementary School building.   The commute was not too bad. You also had the chance to stop to get a cup of coffee to jump-start your day and you even walked into the office a little early.  The morning is officially in full swing.  Sitting at your desk, the radio is down low and the computer is on.  The steaming cup of French Roast coffee hits the spot on this cool Fall morning.  A coworker stops over to your desk to say Hello.  The two of you get carried away into a deep conversation.  Then suddenly a news flash on the radio and on the internet floods the communication lines.  Something major has happened.  People are reporting sightings that THE DEAD NOW ROAMS THE EARTH!  People gather in various areas of the office to talk about the reports.  No one really knows whats going on.   Some don’t even believe it.   The Boss has alerted everyone that something is going on and all business, schools and other public places are now on official lock down.  Fear settles in.  Your first instinct is to pick up the phone, but there is no dial tone.   Reaching for your cell phone you make an attempt to call your child’s school and then your husband or wife.  Nothing.  The internet is working so you try to communicate with your loved ones via online chat.  As of now most of your family is doing ok.   The school has not responded to any forms of communication.    Worrying about your children increases.  CNN and Fox news reports that no one is allowed on the streets because it is too dangerous.   The Government has stepped in to try to gain control of the situation out on the streets.   Any non infected civilians will be shot on sight if spotted on the streets.   This is a global matter.   You cant reach your children, or your significant other.  It is forbidden to go outside.  No one really knows what is out there or how long communication on the internet will last.  The office does not have proper food, water, medication and other supplies for any type of long-term stay.  So many thoughts surge through your mind.  Are you going to try to wait it out?  Or will you risk your life going out in a Zombie ridden world to gather your family?  And even if you do and survive where can you go that is safe?  The City is the most dangerous place to be in…..
