Jurassic World (PG-13: 2018)

Jurassic World (PG-13: 2018)
~ 2h 8min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi | 22 June 2018 | Director: J.A. Bayona; Writers: Derek Connolly, Colin Trevorrow | Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rafe Spall, and more – see https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4881806/ for details. ~

While visiting Carlsbad, New Mexico exploring the caverns and geology of the area, we treated ourselves to the opening of Jurassic World using our Movie Passes. The theater was so-so, but the movie grandiouse fun. It kept us on the edge of our seats. A new twist and change of plot with the Jurassic Park series and being the great fans we are, it was exciting with they atypical Hollywood special effect splendor. My son even got scared by the dinosaurs which was a new evolution for him.

The story returns three years after the Jurassic Park theme park was closed and all the remaining dinosaurs in danger of another extinction due to the island’s volcano erupting and exploding towards the destruction of the island. Investors seeks out Owen and Claire to return to the Isla Nublar island to save the species. But the investors aren’t honest with them and want to auction off the dinosaurs instead with the raptor “Blue” to be the main target. They fight to save the dinosaurs and the world which is now in danger from more than the volcano. Great plot and story line. We very much enjoyed the film.

Rated: 4.5 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

Fear the Walking Dead

Fear the Walking Dead
~ TV-MA | 44min | Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi | TV Series (2015– ) | Creators: Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman; Starring: Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Cliff Curtis, and many more – see IMDB for details. ~

Not as good as “The Walking Dead” this spin-off alternate tale that weaves in and out of the original series, is a fantastic simultaneous story. It starts off in Los Angeles as bands of families trying to survive the Zombie apocalypse. Great tales with up/down captivation through the series. Running alongside the time line of Walking Dead, the family has to test their ethics as they travel land, sea, and into Mexico. Loss, horror, death, dysfunction, and survival. A fun action packed thriller.

Rated: 4 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

A modern living myth of modern day Lucifer who goes by his true name as Lucifer Morningstar who escapes Hell and decides to try out living amongst the human race. Angry at his father God, constantly in struggle and battle with their relationship, he cuts off his wings and tries to live a luxurious “normal” life. But too difficult to hide his powers … he teams up with Chloe, a police agent that he becomes a consultant for in solving crimes and murders. He falls deeply in love with her and struggles with the vulnerability that love causes.

Supergirl – the TV series (2015-present)

Supergirl
~ TV-PG | 43min | Action, Adventure, Drama | TV Series (2015– ) | Creators: Ali Adler, Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg; Starring: Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, and many more – see IMDB for details. ~

A spin-off tale of Kryptonian survival, just as when Superman (Kal-El) is expelled to safety from the destruction of Krypton, so too was his cousin Kara – who was sent to protect him. They were separated as Kara accidentally gets delayed in the Phantom Zone and is unable to watch over Kal-El. She finally arrives and is adopted in a similar sense as young Clark Kent. She grows up as Kara Danvers and slowly discovers her abilities, purpose, and history. She is exposed to the Department of Extra-Normal Operations and recruited to fight alien invasions, crime, and attacks – as another champion super heroe saving the planet. A great super-heroe story in epic mirroring of Superman from a femal perspective and heroine tale. I am loving the series.

Rated: 4.75 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

A Quiet Place (R: 2018)

A Quiet Place
~ PG-13 | 1h 30min | Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi | 6 April 2018 (USA) | Director: John Krasinski; Writers: Bryan Woods (screenplay by), Scott Beck (screenplay by) ; Starring: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Millicent Simmonds, and many more – see IMDB for details. ~

Its a tale of the future when Earth was destroyed by an blind alien race with extreme sensitive hearing that predates on humans and other animals. The creatures hunted by sound, even the minute pin drop sound could attract them. The only way humans could survive was to live in extreme silence. The film follows a husband and wife with their children trying to keep their existence named the Abbots. They even struggle through a pregnancy and raising a crying baby. The road to survive is extreme, and challenging. Edge of your seat action ad suspense, intriguing plot, great characters and sound play. I really enjoyed this film.

Rated: 4.5 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions. Watched at Tinseltown using Movie Pass. ~

~ R | 1h 36min | Thriller | 20 April 2018 (USA) | Director: Deon Taylor

An interesting movie about a couple about to become engaged during a special retreat at a cabin in the mountains but is soured by running into conflict with some bikers. It turns out that they hunt them down doing a murder spree along the way. Eventually a high level, international sex trafficking ring is exposed and its a fight for its survival. Challenged by a reporter who exposes the crimes and dangers, waist deep in trouble herself, the truth is exposed. The film was intriguing, captivating, high action, and had a good plot. Well done.

Super Troopers 2 (R: 2018)

Super Troopers 2 (R: 2018)
~ 1h 39min | Comedy, Crime, Mystery | 20 April 2018 : Director: Jay Chandrasekhar; Writers: Jay Chandrasekhar (as Broken Lizard), Kevin Heffernan (as Broken Lizard) | Starring: Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, and More info at IMDB. Seen at Tinseltown in Colorado Springs, Colorado ~

In the flavor of Super Troopers, as a sequel, is another “dumb and dumber” parody of the Vermont state troopers being re-assigned in a U.S. take-over of a slice of Canada that was mis-aligned in history. Reclaiming the land from the Canucks was a bad idea, as they were relatively hostile to America stepping across the line in Canada. There was a plot deeper than one would think that involved smuggling, the Canadian Mounties against the Troopers both thinking the other were guilty. A twist at the end with Rob Lowe starring, gives another pondering of what’s going on. From Grizzly bears to pranks, it is an all out Canadian vs American war. It was stupid but definitely in the flavor of Super Troopers. If you liked the original, you’ll probably enjoy this film. I personally can’t remember if I enjoyed the first one. Since I got to see it with Movie Pass, no loss on my shoulders or wallet.

Rated: 2 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions on 4/27/2018. ~
