Jurassic World (2015)

In some ways, Jurassic World is like the franchise itself.  After 10 years, we find attendance and memories of the park in decline.  In an attempt to keep the park viable and fresh, the people in charge have decided to create something new to bring interest back. The metaphor goes deeper though.  Let's look at … Continue reading Jurassic World (2015)

Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)

The third installment of the Insidious Trilogy may not be its strongest outing, but it certainly provides a fitting end to a collection of films filled with memorable moments and colorful characters.  Best of all, it basically ends the series where it all began. Insidious 3 takes place several years prior to the events of … Continue reading Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)

[Warning: there may be spoilers ahead] Reminiscent of The Fugitive and Frantic, Mills … Continue reading Taken 3 (2015)

The Woman in Black: Angel of Death has all the horror elements that you’d expect from a Hammer film.  Yet, unfortunately for me, most the thrills came from its jump scares and not the story itself.  This sequel to 2012’s The Woman in Black is set 40 years after the events of the first film, … Continue reading The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death (2014)

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014)
