Thanks a lot America for cursing us with at least another ten years of lame Melissa McCarthy comedies. Next time you complain Hollywood puts out only crap, remember remember the fifth of June. Fortunately her reign at the top will be short-lived.
There's really only one movie out this week: "Jurassic World." It's basically just a retread of "Jurassic Park" with some "Westworld" and "Futureworld" DNA thrown in. All of those were Michael Crichton creations, the latter two movies from the 70s starring Yul Bryner.
So this time around they got sick of trying to make real dinosaurs so they came up with dino "hybrids" which are basically just monsters they made up for the purpose of terrorizing people once they run amok. Instead of a wimp like Sam Neill or Jeff Goldblum trying to stop them, they've enlisted Star-Lord himself, Chris Pratt.
Anyway, I'm sure people will go watch this because it's got like monsters and name brand recognition and Chris Pratt. I'll probably save it for later because I don't care. Or maybe I'll go watch it some late afternoon when I have nothing else to do. Honestly this has been a really blah summer movie season. I watched Avengers 2 with tepid interest but nothing else has got me even the slightest bit stoked. Ah well, there's always Star Wars in December and Batman/Superman and Captain America 3 (or Avengers 2.5) next year.
