Should there be another Jurassic Park sequel?

We all know that the sequel to Jurassic World is happening, the question is should it?

Jurassic Park was a great movie, Steven Spielberg once again delivered us a summer blockbuster with a great story, cast and special effects. In fact the special effects were revolutionary for the time! Over twenty years and three sequels later I personally am left wondering if Universal and co. should stop milking this particular cash cow.


Jurassic World like its predecessors delivered state of the art special effects but the story definitely felt like an after thought especially when considering the sheer number of product placements; "Verizon Wireless presents the Indominus Rex" and I'm only guessing but a fair chunk of the movie's budget too. It seemed there were more Mercedes Benz vehicles on that island than in the whole of
Germany! Obviously this isn't unusual for Hollywood movies or more specifically the Jurassic Park movies but they did feel a little more forced in Jurassic World than the others. 

I know it's not a thinking movie and the story revolves around the resurrection of dinosaurs but the idea that Jurassic World would open to the public twelve years after Jurassic Park was torn apart by escaping dinosaurs (before it even opened) and eight years after a T-Rex went public by going on a rampage through down town San Diego is ludicrous! What's even more ludicrous is the idea that ten years after the gates open the world is bored of dinosaurs; Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) even points this out when he says "They're dinosaurs. Wow enough". 


"They're dinosaurs. Wow enough"

The plot is a mix of copying the original 1993 movie and setting up the next sequel. As Ian Malcolm puts it in The Lost World "Oh yeah. Oooh ahhh, that's how it always starts. Then later there's running and um, screaming". Only this time the dinosaur that escapes is a genetically engineered hybrid made up of the DNA of several dinosaurs and other animals. In Jurassic Park 5/Jurassic World 2 we should find out what plans InGen's Security/Military contractors have for engineered hybrid dinosaurs other than using them as blood hounds. Oh and the dinosaurs will no doubt escape and start causing havoc!

Yes the smuggling of Doctor Henry Wu (BD Wong) and his creations off of Isla Nublar and his communications with Hoskins (Vincent D'Onofrio) aren't exactly subtle hints that another movie is on the way. No doubt Owen Grady will be chasing Henry Wu down in a fancy new Mercedes! Combine this with the fact that Jurassic World is the third highest grossing movie of all time...yeah there's no stopping it!

But I wish there was!!

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!


Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Dates for Phase 5 of the MCU may have been Leaked

After unveiling Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at Comic Con last month, it's believed that plans for Phase 5 will be announced at D23. But have some of the release dates may have already been leaked?



Charles Murphy (@_CharlesMurphy) - someone who is known for revealing accurate info - has tweeted possible release dates for two upcoming movies. According to Murphy (which "could be subject to change"), Black Panther 2 will arrive in cinemas on 18th February 2022, and will be followed by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on 6th May 2022. These dates are similar to the movies that preceded them, Black Panther was released on 13th February 2018 and GOTG Vol. 2 on 27th April 2017. Both movies had a lot of success in their respective slots, so it makes sense that Marvel would attempt to continue that success with future instalments. It has also been confirmed by James Gunn, that he won't be working on GOTG Vol. 3 until after he's completed production of "The …

JOJO RABBIT | Moustache Teaser Reaction

If Top Gun: Maverick is the most exciting teaser of late, then the teaser trailer for "Jojo Rabbit" has got to be the most bizarre. If you haven't seen it, check it out below:


Taika Waititi's latest movie is based on the book "Caging Skies" by Christine Leunens, and tells the story of Jojo "Rabbit" Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis). A member of the Hitler Youth, Jojo's world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. And the only person he has to turn to as he attempts to deal with all that he's going through, is his imaginary friend...Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi).

Now I know what you're thinking; "this sounds bat shit insane!" And to be fair, you're probably right. But Jojo Rabbit looks - in true Waititi fashion - absolutely hysterical. It is definitely something you have to see to believe, and that's just the trailer. One thing fans of …
