Jurassic World ranked in at the Box Office, becoming the the 3rd highest grossing movie of all time – just behind Titanic and Avatar. Naturally, Universal Pictures wants to piggy back off the success of Jurassic World and make a sequel. Which makes for an opportune time to quote Jeff Goldblum’s line from the first film “were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should”.

There are many among us who think the Ghostbusters reboot is but a joke. The nostalgia trippers out there who are so emotionally connected to the original films think a new version is cardinal sin.

A late summer treat has arrived in the form of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the latest film in the spy film series that seems to be getting better with age. Indeed, each chapter of the Mission: Impossible franchise seems to refine what’s come before, building one on top of the other by taking away what doesn’t work and keeping the things that do work. As a result, this new mission is the best Mission yet. A high-stakes thrill ride of big action set pieces tied together with a compelling story and all the usual spy movie trappings. No one’s reinventing the wheel here, but like the man said, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. (more…)
Last week on Hannibal, we finally witnessed the arrival of The Great Red Dragon – a new serial killer for Will Graham and his crew to hunt down. Unfortunately for Will, he didn’t really want to get involved in the FBI’s antics anymore, but a visit from Jack Crawford convinced him that he could do some good. And while all this was taking place in the outside world, Hannibal, safely (?) locked away, was mentally sparring with his captors and awaiting the arrival of his old friend. This week, Will finally pays a visit to Doctor Lecter. Will the old bromance reunite with a fury? Or is Will still as cold as ever to his “friend”? ‘And the Woman Clothed with Sun…’ answers a few questions and raises a few more. (more…)
