Scott Kreamer talks Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

Scott Kreamer spoke with Solzy at the Movies about the new animated series, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, now streaming on Netflix. Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous launches this Friday on Netflix. I found that the series keeps the spirit of the films but children are the main focus instead of adults. What do you want parents to know about the show with regards to potentially intense images? Scott Kreamer: As with all shows, parents should watch…

Jurassic Park III: The Worst of the Franchise

Jurassic Park III manages to get even darker than the prior films but the sequel doesn’t quite capture the magic of the franchise. Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) heads to Isla Sorna under false pretenses.  Assistant Billy Brennan (Alessandro Nivola) joins the Jurassic Park veteran on the trip.  Paul (William H. Macy) and Amanda Kirby (Téa Leoni) offer Grant funding if he gives them an aerial tour of the island.  Sounds like a good idea,…

The Lost World: Jurassic Park Raises The Stakes

The Lost World: Jurassic Park seeks to raise the stakes from the earlier 1993 classic but the sequel doesn’t improve upon the original. Four years later, John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) sends Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Golblum) to an island full of dinosaurs.  Malcolm is reluctant to go on the research expedition until learning that girlfriend Dr. Sarah Harding (Julianne Moore) is already on Isla Sorna.  At which point, it becomes a rescue mission and Malcolm…

Studio Tours: Disney, Universal, and Warner Bros.

During the Critics’ Choice Awards weekend, Solzy at the Movies visited Walt Disney Studios, Universal Studios, and Warner Brothers Studios for studio tours. To say that my weekend in LA was magical would certainly not be an understatement.  Walking along the hallways that Walt Disney once roamed is also very inspiring.  You can’t help but get a magical feeling in knowing just how much magic went down within the building.  Yes, I did take a…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Raises The Stakes

Three years after the Indominus Rex caused chaos, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom raises the stakes with moral questions of ethical behavior. Bookended by Dr. Ian Malcolm in what amounts to an under-five minute cameo, the film is about what to do with these animals after geneticists have brought them back to life.  Leave it to Malcolm to give his piece of mind while testifying in front of a U.S. Senate committee–using dialogue that, for the…

Upon Further Review: Jurassic World

With the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom this week, I decided to give Jurassic World a revisit. Fourteen years after the events of Jurassic Park 3, a new park has been up and running for ten years on Isla Nublar.  This is the same island in which Jurassic Park was introduced in 1993.  A lot has changed over the years since Jurassic Park graced the cinemas.  It’s enough that the screenplay manages to serve as…

Jurassic Park Remains A Classic After 25 Years

Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park remains an innovative, groundbreaking and inspiring classic as it did when it was originally released 25 years ago in June. Shortly after the incident on Isla Nublar and the quick introduction of lawyer Donald Gennaro, the film really gets going with paleontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and paleobotonist Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) digging up a velociraptor in Montana.  Their dig is shortly interrupted by a helicopter, which leads to Grant and Sattler…

Spielberg: HBO Documentary celebrates Steven Spielberg

Steven Spielberg’s life and career is celebrated in Spielberg, a new documentary from HBO. From award-winning director Susan Lacy, Spielberg’s life is documented in 2.5 hours and that amount of time alone isn’t enough to cover everything in Spielberg’s career.  Many films are allotted to just a glimpse in a montage that covers Spielberg’s filmmaking career and even then, there are a number of Spielberg films that manage to get left out. “I avoided therapy…

Jurassic Park at 24: How Steven Spielberg’s Film Changed My Life

Jurassic Park was released 24 years ago on June 11, 1993 and this film changed my life as it was the one that set me on a course of wanting a filmmaking career. I still remember the first time I watched the film in 1993 at Showcase Cinemas and how I flinched when the Tyrannosaurus Rex appeared on screen for the first time.  To this day, I still find myself either quoting the film or…
