5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember

Simon Columb with 5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember…

You did it. You planned to watch all three Jurassic Park films prior to watching Jurassic World and stalled after the first one.

There are problems with The Lost World: Jurassic Park, sure, but it is crucially a Spielberg film. Not executively-produced, but directed by the bearded cinematic deity himself. But you had to skip it because everyone ‘knows’ how bad it is. Truth be known, I don’t think it is that bad. I don’t see the horrendous train-wreck of a film, many believed it was…

The now-defunct podcast ‘Frankly, My Dear‘ once claimed – and I’m paraphrasing – “The Lost World is so bad that it puts in doubt whether Spielberg actually directed the film and, though people claim it’s only the San Diego bit which is bad, in fact, »

The Next Jurassic World Film

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…

Matt Singer writes for Screencrush about a new trend, whereby reboots ignore prior sequels and explicitly create a follow-up to the original film:

“But what Colin Trevorrow (and, by extension, Jurassic World) doesn’t mention is the fact that both movies (The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III) also conclude with scenes beyond the borders of Isla Sorna, and those scenes would make it almost impossible for Jurassic World to exist.”

Read the full article (and I recommend you do) here.

Singer’s article for Screencrush fascinated me. On the one hand, I absolutely agree with his “lazy-writing”/‘selective-sequels’ argument. Too often, reboots pick nostalgic moments to build from and ignore anything that doesn’t fit the new instalment. Indeed, the Fast & Furious series is so strong because of the detailed history behind each new adventure. Even X-Men: Days of Future Past, »

Will Smith’s ‘Concussion’ To Hit Theaters Christmas Day

27 January 2015 5:08 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Sony Pictures announced today that it has scheduled the Will Smith drama Concussion for a Christmas Day release. The film is opening at a prime time, not only because of the holiday movie season but also just as the NFL will be preparing for the playoffs. Concussion follows Dr. Bennet Omalu, the forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of football-related brain trauma in a pro player and fought to bring awareness to the public. In his search for the truth, Omalu, a total outsider to pro football, takes on the sports industry’s status quo. His studies on chronic traumatic encephalopathy (Cte), prompted the NFL to take brain-related injuries seriously. Cte was cited in the suicides of former NFL stars Junior Seau and Dave Duerson. Deadline announced Smith’s attachment to the film back in June.

Written and directed by Peter Landesman (Parkland), Concussion is based on the GQ »
