Jurassic World
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Well first off, none of us came into this movie expecting Oscar worthy acting performances, and its true we didn't get any. The Original Jurassic Park had a stellar cast, and to my judgement that is really all that this movie lacked. What it did right, it did very right, someone actually went back to the previous instalments and looked at what worked. It was fun, scary in parts and explored deeper messages, what more could you ask for??? It reminded me of the first time I saw the original movie, yes it was missing the quality acting, but Jurassic World has something that the original did not, and I really can't explain it.

This movie, shocked me. I had not seen a trailer or read a review, so I went in blind. The open was funny, imaginative and then the sadness, reminded me of UP, but different as it was a child's point of view. The story was fun, but with serious undertones of grief and how it can cloud judgement and emotion, and amongst the action and comedy you begin to care about the characters. I loved this movie, and it makes Home seem utterly below standard, maybe we are seeing a new golden age at Disney?

The Age of Adaline
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The story is underdeveloped, the ending seems rushed and the male lead (Huisman) seems miscast in among his co-stars. This is not a movie where the plot engrosses you, or twists keep you entertained, but there is something special about it. Blake Lively is a revelation, finally moving past Serena, she plays the part with such an understated grace, much reminiscent of movie stars that are unfortunately long gone a memory of a golden era. Ellen Burstyn captivates as always, and Harrison Ford puts in his best work perhaps since his days as Jack Ryan.

The quality of the acting not only out did the quality of the material, but in a strange way made it better, its not very often that Hollywood gives us a piece of cinema we can appreciate these days, the blockbusters take over, and then people moan that they do not know any of the Oscar nominees. This movie is far from perfect, and its poor plot and ending mean it will not score at the Oscars, even though I feel the acting really should.
