Jurassic Park is a great movie. More than that, it is one of my favourite movies. You can debate its quality if you like –I know that plenty of people rank it in the middle of Spielberg’s filmography– but for me it is the film that made me believe in movie magic. I feel it’s important that you know this going into this review, and that you also know that none of the films in the rest of the franchise come close to recapturing that original magic, and that includes this one.
This one at least tries to do something new and different, so that’s something.

Jurassic Park is not only one of the films that really kicked off my own love of the movies, it also changed the movies themselves. Watch this awesome short documentary on bringing digital dinosaurs to life and how that changed everything.

It’s time to interrupt the endless barrage of Christmas calories
that I seem intent on shoving down my throat as quickly as possible
seriously, it’s like Gluttony Man in Se7en
but I don’t have my body tied down,
my arms are wilfully ladling anything alcoholic or sweet or tasty into my mouth
like it’s going out of fashion
to round up what I think have been my personal favourite games and movies of 2013.

Kitty Pryde, Iceman and Rogue all back for X-Men: Days of Future Past
Bryan Singer announced Saturday via the twitters that Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Anna Paquin will all be returning to the franchise in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past film:
This is going to be interesting. Days of Future Past is a crazy time travel story which is how we have the First Class cast and the X1, X2 and Last Stand casts all together. I’m looking forward to seeing how they tie the 60s versions of the characters together with the present versions of the characters if only because of the few very subtle things that made me consider them to be different time lines. – Matt
Star Trek fan talks about JJ Abrams taking the job directing Star Wars
Jordan Hoffman at Badass Digest:
Know this: I love Star Wars. Star Trek is a key
part of my life, but the other, lesser franchise
is still a great deal of fun. You wanna grab beers
and yap about IG-88 or Midi-chlorian counts or the
lesser known works of the Mon Calamari Ballet
Company? I’m down. But the thing is that Star Wars,
at least for people in my age group, was something
that was accepted – it was never not cool. Star Trek
only became cool very, very recently. And J.J. Abrams,
for better or worse, had something to do with that.
The basic gist, as Mashable quoted me, is this: I feel
like J.J. Abrams took me out to the prom but left
with the hotter girl.
The whole thing is definitely worth a read. He’s more upset than I am, but it does mirror my feelings on the situation pretty well.
