Movie Review: Jurassic World

While Jurassic World wasn't nearly as exceptional than the classic Jurassic Park, this was still a pretty enthralling and captivating piece of entertainment. On a technical standpoint, the film was, unsurprisingly, on point. The visual effects were terrific, some scenes were exceptionally shot and flawlessly rendered, and the dinosaurs had excellent details. The plot, however, could've used a lot more creativity as the film made a lot of references from the original - the touching of a dying dinosaur, a male lead, a tough chick, two kids in distress and more. Sure, it added a lot to the nostalgia, but a little more than that would've been better. Also, the ending that involved the TRex was far too convenient. It didn't even attack the humans after taking down the Indominus Rex. Why? Good thing, the leads had plenty of charisma especially Chris Pratt to somehow ignore those flaws. Jurassic World didn't try to be revolutionary - there wasn't even any groundbreaking narrative - but was made purely to entertain and it certainly did just that. 7.5

Movie Review: Insidious: Chapter 3

Insidious: Chapter 3, to me, was an unnecessary entry to the franchise. It was formulaic, it was predictable, and it was disappointing. It relied heavily on highly predictable jump scares that it cheapened the whole proceedings. There was no subtlety to the script or the direction, things got repetitive towards the end, and when the entity was revealed, it was never truly frightening. It wasn't as atmospheric as it's predecessors, which made this a lot less satisfying for a horror flick. Insidious: Chapter 3 wasn't necessarily bad - it still delivered some of its scare tricks decently - but it was mediocre at best. 5
