Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Review

"There is no character development, a lot of fights between humans (when we want to watch dinos), stupid decisions. The movie is barely entertaining!" - Pedro

"On the contrary, I thought this is the 2nd best in the franchise, and the only one, original aside, that truly explores sci-fi themes with interest and depth." -Jesus

To Link or Not to Link...

Gawker on Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby, just issued in a deluxe Criterion version
BBC Skyfall wins the best Bond opening ever overseas. Remember when we didn't even know if we would get any more James Bonds due to legal issues and rights and studio problems?
The Guardian on Daniel Day-Lewis' infamous ghostly father sighting all those years ago when he played Hamlet on stage (he has not returned to the stage since) 

In Contention George Clooney lines up a very starry cast for his next Oscar attack, the World War II drama Monuments Men: Craig, Blanchett, Goodman
AV Club Mike D'Angelo on the directors cut of one of my favorite films Little Shop of Horrors (1986)

Towleroad Madonna visits Ellen Degeneres! 
Coming Soon Tom Cruise isn't done with the Mission: Impossible franchise yet. And here I thought they brought in Jeremy Renner to replace him. 

CHUD has a 1688 word review of the new Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning movie with 80s action icons Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren returning and refuses to say whether they walk around with asses out as they so famously did the first time. 1688 words and no time for ass? That's just mean.
Movie|Line Ugh. I was totally going to do this Grease-centric Hurricane Sandy thing but a ton of sites beat me to it. I type so fast but I don't have all the time in the world or a huge paid staff to jump on everything. BOO.
Tom & Lorenzo Mad Men filming in Hawaii, eh? Jessica Pare and Jon Hamm in cute bathing suits. Oh I have to share the photo... I can't just link!

Lovely! I've never been to Hawaii, have you? It's nice to dream of Hawaii in the aftermath of dismal, windy, grey, wet destructive Hurricane Sandy.

well what do you know, Blanchett secures a 4th consecutive leading role in a good-sounding project: The Untitled Woody Allen Project, Carol, Skinny and Cat, and now this.

I hope you're safe. Please don't go out. Stay at home and watch movies (if you got power).

I was lucky enough to spend the summer of 1982 on Maui with my family... I was just a 'kid' hehe... and after watching all the scary coverage of your super storm--grey grey grey--that tropical beach does sound wonderful! Hope you and yours are warm and dry and with power to be able to watch good movies and snuggle... all the best!

Oh I've been to Hawaii. With the WHOLE family. It was my parents' 25th and my grandparents' 50th anniversary the same year so we went of Christmas break. And of course, there was a gigantic storm when we were on Maui. So huge that the lobby of our hotel flooded. I also distinctly remember having to change a tire with my father and grandfather in a torrential downpour. It was absolutely gorgeous, though, even in the rain.

My family seems to bring rain wherever we go... cousins of mine from Texas were visiting NY this past week. They had tickets to see The Lion King on Sunday night. Not only did it cancel, but apparently everything else in Times Square was shut down. I felt so badly for them.

On the DDL Hamlet story, Jeremy Northam took over the role of Hamlet twice in Richard Eyre's production, once for DDL, and once for Ian Charleston. Eyre brought his friend Ian Charleston in to play Hamlet, Charleston's last role, as he was dying of AIDS. (That was kept quiet for insurance purposes?) Charleston said because he was dying, he was the "best qualified" Hamlet, to understand the closeness of death. Many regard Charleston's Hamlet as the best ever. When he could no longer physically continue, Northam again stepped in.

I would have liked to have seen all three actors in the role, but especially Charleston.
