Editorial | No Need for Dialogue

If anyone tells you that France is lovely in the summer, you can tell them that… well, yes, it’s technically LOVELY, but it’s really really hot.  At least, that was my experience at the beginning of July.  Lyon, France was about thirty eight degrees Celsius (that’s over 100 degrees Farenheit for Americans), and I was drinking at least sixteen cups (that’s 128 oz.) each day without ever needing a trip to the water closet because I was expelling it in its entirety through my pores.

Staff Writer | A Look Back at Summer Cinema

So it is now September, the limbo month, where movie goers don’t get any blockbusters worth the name and no real Oscar contenders are out yet.  Let’s take a look back at the summer and see what we learned from the biggest movies of the summer:

#1) Your creation will kill you. In most movies where this is a plot device, a human playing god in some way will get bitten in the ass, and this summer had plenty of ass biting. There were three killer Artificial Intelligence movies: Ex Machina, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Terminator Genisys (although, to be technical about it Ex Machina wasn’t a summer movie), plus Jurassic World’s supercharged killer–dinosaurs–just to hammer home the point.

Welcome to Jurassic World

The magic is gone so let’s eat some people!

It’s been 22 years since, as a boy, I watched animals that up until that point, I had only seen as bones or cartoons damn well near come alive and at the same time bewilder scare the crap out of me. Steven Spielberg’s 1993 Jurassic Park could be seen as the perfect Blockbuster. It still holds up over 20 years later. After The Lost World (underrated I think) and Jurassic Park 3 (let’s not talk about it) the public’s cultural conciseness had basically put the franchise to bed, really only to living on in comic books and video games. But, it’s the 21st century, and we’ll try anything….four times.

So we get Jurassic World, a movie I’m sure no one was really asking for, but it’s here so let’s make the most of it. Once I heard that this was actually going to happen I instantly went in to self preservation mode and prepared myself for a total suck fest. As trailers for the movie started to come out I knew the only way I was going to like this film was if a ton of people got eaten by passable CGI Dinosaurs. That’s all I wanted and Jurassic World pretty much delivers. Continue reading
