Jurassic World Dominion Is An Epic Thrill Ride

Jurassic World Dominion is an epic thrill ride and satisfying conclusion to the arc that started almost 30 years ago with Jurassic Park. While there are no mid-credits or post-credits scene, it’s worth it to stay through the credits because of everyone who worked on this film. Not only that but Michael Giacchino calls back a number of cues over the years and not just the classic John Williams themes. Over the years, I’ve come…

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous – Season 3

The third season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous may be the most intense season as we worry about the fate of the campers. In a perfect world, we’d be getting Jurassic World: Dominion this summer. This might not happening but we can still return to Isla Nublar this week. I always have a fun time going back to the island. Strangely, I keep turning to these films and series for comfort viewing during the pandemic.…

Camp Cretaceous: Season 2 Is Thrilling Escapism

The second season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous provides for thrilling and pure escapist entertainment as we return to Isla Nublar. I’m going to be honest here.  Because of everything going on, I needed to step away from the news two weeks ago on a Thursday evening.  There is no better way–at least for me during the pandemic–to have escapism than return to Isla Nublar.  It took almost three decades to get an animated Jurassic…

Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, and The Chaos

There’s something about the need to repeatedly return to Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, and and the chaos of Isla Nublar during the pandemic. I don’t know what it is about the films and the animated series that keeps drawing me back this year.  Maybe it’s my love of dinosaurs?  Or maybe it’s the fact that I’m so desperate for a vacation.  Outside of the shlep to Evanston for kosher food, I only go a quarter…

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…

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…
