With recent news of a Jurassic World trilogy in the works to follow the success of the sequel/reboot this past summer, the popularity of the Jurassic Park franchise might be bigger than it’s ever been. There’s plenty of dinosaur action in our future from Universal Pictures.
Now two fans have taken their love of the franchise to an extreme level with a massive LEGO creation that takes all four of the Jurassic Park movies spanning 22 years and combines them into one giant set, not unlike the LEGO Jurassic World video game that was released this year in conjunction with the movie. Check it out! Read More »
Everyone is anticipating the release of Jurassic World this week, and we’re hoping to at least be entertained. There’s no chance the movie will be as good as Jurassic Park, but hopefully it’s not terrible. If the buzz from the world premiere wasn’t enough of an impression of the sequel, we’ve got reviews from our own Peter Sciretta and Germain Lussier to offer insight into the quality of the movie, so check those out.
But in the meantime, let’s take another look into the past at one of the less than satisfying sequels. Earlier this week we highlighted Everything Wrong with The Lost World: Jurassic Park, but now we have the Honest Trailer for Steven Spielberg’s misfire. Check out The Lost World trailer after the jump! Read More »
This week brings the third attempt at a sequel to the modern classic that is Jurassic Park. If the buzz from the world premiere is any indicator, this might finally be a worthy sequel to Steven Spielberg‘s original dinosaur adventure. But that doesn’t make the disappointing sequels in between any better.
There was no way that any sequel could live up to the magic of Jurassic Park, but Spielberg tried with The Lost World: Jurassic Park. They upped the dinosaur action, introduced another tyrannosaurs rex, more velociraptors, but decided to throw any semblance of a decent script out the window. But that’s just the tip of what’s wrong with The Lost World, and the folks at Cinema Sins have taken 16 minutes to point out everything wrong with the obligatory sequel.

Six months ago, we ran an article saying that Jurassic Park would be coming to Blu-ray in 2011 and now Universal Pictures has confirmed that to be true. While no release date is set, Steven Spielberg‘s classic 1993 film (and its two inferior sequels) will come to the high definition format sometime before the holiday season. Check out possible box art, a Jaws release window and more after the jump. Read More »
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has just passed $600 million at the worldwide box office, despite mostly really bad reviews. This is nothing new. Mainstream audiences don’t listen to the critics, and big screen spectacle will almost always win over quality entertainment. Nothing was going to stop me from seeing the movie, not all the bad reviews in the world. It’s an event movie — and I needed to see it for myself. It should be noted that box office should never be looked at as an indication of the mainstream public’s thoughts on a movie (it sold tons of tickets so the mainstream public must’ve loved it) but only an indication of the hype (and in later weeks, possibly word of mouth).
The success of Transformers 2 got me thinking. What is the worst reviewed box office success of all time? Could it be Revenge of the Fallen? Find out what I’ve uncovered after the jump.
