Jurassic World - They're Dinosaurs... Wow Enough?

         These words are uttered by Chris Pratt’s character in response to ‘corporate’ and their notion that it now takes having to create a genetically modified hybrid super dinosaur to satiate the current seen-it-all-before dinosaur theme park visiting audience. Just regular old dinosaurs don't cut the mustard anymore.

        Although undoubtedly also an intentional sly dig by the filmmakers at the state of Hollywood blockbusters today, Jurassic World itself unfortunately falls into the same trap itself, both in terms of its content and delivery.

Mad Max: Fury Road - The Fast and the Furiosa

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Bigger and Badder?

      It’s a fact. The Avengers was massive.

       Let’s not wax on about how just how much this sequel, Age of Ultron, had to live up to. The huge weight of expectation behind it - not just as a sequel to a box office hit – but also as the benchmark for Superhero ‘event’ movies has been raised pretty damn high in the interim, with the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy being particular standouts.

       So it’s Oscar season…
