    I haven't seen this movie in decades even though I own it as part of a Blu Ray set that has a couple other classics, Soylent Green and Logan's Run. I last saw it long before I ever read the book so I didn't realize until this time it was an adaptation (although a very loose one) of Richard Matheson's "I Am Legend". It's stupid and a weird in 70s horror/action/exploitation movie kind of way but entertaining for those reasons as well.

    Jurassic Park: World Dominion

    So I went last night to my discretion. I was basically dragged to it. I loved the first movie, liked the second and every one after was just, meh...and this one was no exception, imo. How it made the money it made over the weekend surprises me, but then again I helped take there I guess. It was good see the old gang Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill, and Laura Dern, but in the grand scope of the movie it means nothing. It was chock full of call backs and general remember this kind of moments, etc. I found it annoying, really. The whole movie was just a straight dive bomb into terrible.

    Top Gun: Maverick.

    It's a "yup". Dumb as a pile of rocks at times and clearly a(nother) Tom Cruise vehicle, but very well done.

    ...and I got Jennifer Connelly in a scene with Bowie (and then T-Rex) playing in the background, so it's a clear win for me!

    :cool:

    As a child of the 80s I grew up on a steady diet of Rambo but these days I'm of the opinion they should have just stopped after the first. I mean I know Rambo II is an 80s action classic and it's enjoyable in a nostalgic/silly way but it's an awful continuation of the story. Probably just should have been a new character/franchise for Stallone than a sequel to First Blood. In the first movie he's a sympathetic and tragic character but frightening and flawed, in the second he's just your musclebound action hero cutout.

    They drew first blood, not me

    I always love when Trautman shows up. He delivers lines with such style and flair

    I liked the film fine, even though I’m not a huge JP fan and this was the least Jurassic Park-feeling film in the franchise. (JP1 and JW:FK being the only previous ones I really connected with).


    I like me some dinosaurs in my James Bond/Jason Bourne/Mission Impossible type movies, and some human character arcs and proper plot in my dinosaur movies, so JW: Dominion (and JW:FK) fit me quite well.


    Also, a big plus for the return of all the oldie-time characters and actors.


    There were a lot of Indiana Jones visual references, sometimes paired with John William-esque music to drive home the point. And, there was an Indiana Solo character, and she was raaaaaad! (But, of course, fans are gonna hate her… and fling their poop around).


    If I have to criticize the film in any way, I found JW: D a bit long and busy, and the writing is frequently very convenient, but all right; these are dino films for kids anyway, so… Not a world-shaking movie experience, but it was fun, warm, and interesting. I liked it.

    This is an excellent film, much more of a drama than an action movie. The second and third are just horribles, unfortunately.

    Yep. It was a whole bunch of boring 'bad scientists' stuff with a few good dino scenes mixed in.
    I agree. It's your typical Tom Cruise movie but ---- with a dynamite screenplay. IMHO, it was so good it brought back memories of some of the classic action-adventure flicks from the 1980s. Definitely a film you want to experience on the Big Screen.
