Film Feature: Mini Reviews

Mad Max: Fury Road: At first I honestly didn't want to watch Mad Max because it looked really violent. However, after reading several reviews I decided to give it a chance. While there was some violence, it wasn't over the top. However, what I was most looking forward to was the back story of Max...what was his did he stay alive and independent for so long...why was he willing to help save the wives? I was also looking forward to how the city initially developed and the hierarchy of things. Unfortunately, all of my questions were left unanswered. Perhaps if I had watched the original movie I would have more insight? Ultimately, I would recommend this to movie goers who are looking for 95% action, 5% plot.

Jurassic World: Ok, I'll admit it...I wasn't a big fan of the original movie initially. When I got older and watched it again, I fell in love with it! In fact, I loved the whole trilogy and even bought it for John last Christmas. I was really excited to watch Jurassic World and I was not disappointed! Great story arc with ample action. I just adore Chris Pratt. His character was the best, followed closely by Jake Johnson's character. There is something for everyone in this movie! Overall, a great movie for the family with action, humor and a touch of romance!


  1. Yeah someone mentioned that Mad max was all action. I remember watching the older movies. I need to see Jurassic world and I saw it in the theater the first time :)

  2. I have always been a HUGE Jurassic Park fan. I have loved it since I first saw it. Therefore, when this new movie was announced I was nervous and ecstatic. I obviously had to go out and see it during opening weekend. I too was not disappointed! I LOVED it. I especially loved all the little throwbacks to the first movie. I want to see it again and again.
