My uncle turned me onto it years ago. It's my favorite of Clint's directed films. It's almost two films simultaneously, both a Boxing film and a love story between a father and his daughter.

I caught the fall scene....and I just thought, 'what the ****? I need to see this from the beginning.'

So I caught it again from the beginning when I was about 14, and it just got me. Amazing movie, and though Gran Torino is my favorite CE film, MDB comes in second for me. It's a great movie, just definitely gets me.

There are only three characters, none of which can be considered interesting.
Should've been written better, dialogues between Caleb and Nathan are nonsensical.
The lack of interesting backstories killed their characters long before the end.
Directing should've been more stylized.

Regardless, visuals and sound were awesome. Cool soundtrack.

I'd definitely give it a try. I rather enjoyed this one. I did see the Lost Treasure, so I had some knowledge of the fairies before hand. Overall though, it was just a good piece, though name was fooling because it actually isn't based on Tinker. So it's nice to have an original story with someone else as the focus.

I liked it. Not as good add the original but several laugh out loud moments throughout.

Chris Pine was probably my favorite in this. I did not expect to enjoy his performance as much as I did. First one is still better.

Five or ten years from now people will look back on this film and just see another JP3. This film reminds me of Eddie Murphy's cracker joke, in that people are so hungry for something, that they'll eat the first thing they see, even if it's a simple cracker, and think it's the greatest thing on earth.

At this point, I'd rather see a reboot with younger actors playing the original characters, but instead of a normal reboot, just based the film on the animated series, The real Ghostbusters, with the actors looking and dressing like this...

Average. Maybe slightly below; calling it average would imply the bar's gotten pretty low.

Effects were lousy (whole thing was saturated with CG, even in scenes where it wasn't necessary -- where was the muzzled animatronic raptor we saw in that production picture?), direction was bland, and the pacing/writing was probably the biggest issue. We get to the island so fast, things just start happening (in poorly-written fashion) and it's hard to care. It felt like a Transformers flick with a slightly better story and a little more heart.

I was contemplating giving it a 6, but only because of the franchise -- and if the only difference between a 5 and 6 is the "Jurassic" title, it's getting a 5.

Jurassic World - 97/100

Now, before I get pillaged and hung, I'd like to explain; first off I have never fully seen Jurassic Park to it's entirety. I have always known of the film and have seen about 70% of it. So I won't be doing a comparison, and nostalgia won't be a factor like those hating against it.

My rating is based SOLELY as an entertainment score. This film easily right off the bat entertained the living **** out of me! I have to say it has some phenomenal action sequences, and some of the characters; while cliche, were fun and fantastic. So I will list my reasons why I only deducted 3 points off:

-The whole divorce sub-plot was unneeded and stupid to include on a story based on this.
-The blatant 3D scenes were too forced, and would have preferred more subtle ways like: T-Rex ramming the fossils in the end.
-I wasn't looking too much into it; but the continuity error when the boys came off above the lake.


I have a HUGE crush on Bryce Dallas Howard, so I enjoyed her scenes, but she played the aunt role pretty well. I obviously think she could have been better, but she did what she was needed for in the film; so I'm all good.

Going in, I thought Pratt has become too much star power and wasn't a fan of him. Seeing him from a few episodes of Parks and Rec, I was eh. After finishing Parks and Rec, Guardians of the Galaxy, and now this: I think he is FAN-****ING-TASTIC! He plays the badass role well, and can be quite humorous. I heard the rumors of him being Indy and I was 'NO, NO, NO, ****ING NOOOO!!!'...Now I would easily vouch for this man as Indy. While again acting isn't Daniel Day-Lewis Lincoln, it gets the job done.

The boys in my opinion were eh. Didn't really care much, and after seeing the kid in Iron Man 3 (you can obviously tell I didn't bother to find out who he is), I wasn't interested. --However, they were quite nice to have to recreate scenes from the first one, and in a respectful homage of it's ancestor. The gyrosphere scene was too forced like the T-Rex and the Jeep in the Park, but things like the banner, nightvision, electric prod were quite nice.


Now back again, as a cinematic and critique standpoint, I can say this isn't a masterpiece. No it isn't without flaws, but going in I went in for a good movie, and it did not disappoint. I will most certainly be going again to see it in 3D, and I will probably be buying the anthology if they make it, or even solo.

Age of Ultron, Mad Max, Ex Machina, and this...easily one great summer. I'd even say the action in this topped the Godzilla fight last year (which I thought was amazing).

I agree with you, I actually loved the movie, it has a lot of heart and personality, I liked all the protagonists, I hated them at first but ended up liking them, but there's no denying the movie is seriously overflowing with flaws on every level, I'd give it a 4/10, I also agree the cinematography was below mediocre.

By the time they hired him, the Ghostbusters were famous. They were on tv shows, magazines, and they were the hottest thing in town, like the Beetles. Winston just shows up to an empty firehouse holding the newspaper ad. There should have been a huge line of people fighting for that spot, like hundreds of scientist, paranormal experts, and people with a PhD degree, but instead they went with the "everyman," when they should have had their pick of the litter at that point. Winston can only work if the Ghostbusters hire him before they hit it big, maybe (but not necessarily) because one of them knew him already. That's the only way that picking a guy with zero scientific knowledge to help around is justifiable, imo.

It's New York city, not a fantasy land, and the Ghostbusters are the believers among all the non believers in the supernatural. Even when all the craziness is going on, the governor and most people refuse to believe the truth, thinking it's some kind of trick or hoax, because in the real world stuff like that doesn't happen. Even the Ghostbusters' equipment, house, and vehicle makes sense on some level. So yes, the way Winston was rewritten into the film makes no sense, especially given their position at the time he was hired, right after a montage that shows how famous and successful the Ghostbusters are in NY :lo

Like what? I think the way the three guys got started made sense and explained pretty well....they even went to a bank to get a second mortgage so that they could afford the firehouse. When the bad guy wanted to inspect the place, Peter asked him to come back with a permit. If you take away the ghosts from the film, they are just highly educated exterminators basically. I would say that most things in the film make sense. Even in the sequel, it's starts with them out of business because they were sued by the city because of all the damage "they caused". That's more logical and realistic than most superhero film I've seen where the characters aren't held accountable for their actions...even if they saved the city...*cough* ..Batman Begins :lol

Have you seen it lately? Anyway, that "nitpick" doesn't ruin the film, but it was a bad start for the character and he never recovered from it. You can tell that Winston's intro scene was rewritten in the last minute or it was supposed to take place earlier in the film, where it would make more sense since the character originally had a larger role in the story, when they wanted Eddie Murphy to play Winston. Even when Ernie Hudson got the role it was a larger role, but when they started shooting the film, his role was diminished, thus they introduce the character an hour into the film.

The problem is not the character or even how they introduce him, the problem is WHEN they chose to introduce the him. That scene works if it takes place earlier in the story. If they wanted to keep that scene an hour into the film, all they had to do was have a small sequence/montage of them interviewing a bunch of people for the job, which could have been a funny sequence. Not to mention, had they given Winston a larger intro where he gets to impress the guys (and the audience) with his attitude and personality in order to get the job over all the other people who are more qualified, instead of just giving him a one line intro, the character would have had more of an impact and he wouldn't be so forgettable. He's basically a driver, with not much of a personality or skills in the film. The worst part....they did the same thing to Winston in the sequel :lol

Giant 7.8/10 - Very sprawling storywise, but a very rich film visually and thematically, with some really good acting. And it's worth seeing for James Dean's final role alone.

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior - 10/10. I feel a nice connection with this film. It was shot outside of a place in New South Wales, Australia called Broken Hill. I've visited Broken Hill multiple times in my life, and I love it there.

At a little town near Broken Hill called Silverton there's a Road Warrior museum where lots of the vehicles and props used in the film, including Max's Interceptor and the Feral Kid's music box and boomerang, are on display. It's a really great little museum, a gem in a tiny backwater town in the middle of the outback.

I've stood on the very place where the opening chase sequence was shot, at the Mundi Mundi lookout. One of the guys running the museum in Silverton told me a story about how during the filming of the opening chase scene they had to remove a road sign that looked completely out of place. They cut down the sign, but in a way that allowed them to put it back on without any one noticing that it had been tampered with. Sure enough, when I went there, I was able to lift up the road sign to see where they had cut it, put it back and left it years before. It's a small detail but one that sticks out to me when I rewatch the movie, that one quick shot of Max slowing down in the outback with no road sign.

It's the 80s, there was no footage of anything on TV up to that point that proved they were really busting ghosts and the handful of people they helped couldn't hop on Reddit and post about their experience.

You guys may not remember, may be too young or from russia... :lol but there was a ton of scam artists on tv in the 80s. This one guy would convince children via tv commercials and buying air time, to steal/send their parents jewelry to him. :lol

Even Winston's reaction to being hired makes it clear he doesn't understand what he's getting into. Janine asks if he believes in paranormal and his response is that if there is a pay check, he'll believe anything, indicating he's willing to go along with, what as far as he knows, is the lie they're perpetuating.

It's why Peck wants them shut down, why the cops are on his side, why the mayor needs convincing... etc. I mean, even Dana is skeptical and she saw actual ghosts.


Now Ghostbusters 2 is a different story. For the kids at the party to still not believe that Mr Stay Puft happened when they had actual tv cameras at that event at the end of 1, doesn't make sense. But Ghostbusters 2 is pretty meh in general.

I'm not as forgiving about crappy endings - the movie was about an '8' for me all the way through but the ending turned it into a '5'.

I was initially pissed at the ending but after sleeping on it I realized it just cemented that particular character into the psycho ***** that she is. Sure I'd love to see justice done but it was a fitting ending. I'd never bother rewatching this one though. Too depressing.
