Jurassic Park III

Jurassic Park III: Hmm…
★★

Jurassic Park III tells the story of a couple of people who go to Isla Sorna with a certain Dr Alan Grant and after landing on the island, the dinosaurs begin to, as you’d expect from said film, cause them a wee bit of trouble. Simply put, Jurassic Park is actually an OK sequel to its predecessors (which I didn’t rate highly in the first place to be honest), loud and nonsensical, and not really worthwhile the time it takes to watch as the plot goes nowhere and is filled with awful characters and an even worse end. In reality, dinosaurs are long extinct from the earth, much like this franchise should be but unfortunately, we’re due for another in 2014.

In Time (2011)

In Time: Where money is time, and time is money. How much time do you have left?
★★★½

In Time, the sort of film title film critics love, giving them the chance to twist it in an attempt to make a witty statement about how this film was a waste of time, or how it indeed did finish just in time. But the truth is, time was no issue here, apart for those involved in the film – it was paced well to ensure that the plot was always moving forward in what is one of the more original and interesting concepts in Sci-Fi, making for an enjoyable watch, even with the drawbacks. There are some well made points to this film, highlighting many a relatable issue that strikes a chord or two, but the execution across the board was disappointing, from the acting to the writing amongst other slight niggling drawbacks, reducing this film to a somewhat regrettably forgettable flick that could have been better than what it really was.
