A rich scientist invites a handful of young researchers to visit his brand new theme park on a remote desert island. But nothing could have prepared them for what they’re about to discover: Jurassic Park! Light years from what they believed possible, the professor has populated the island with creatures of an other time, the mighty and incredible dinosaurs. Along with the professor’s grandchildren, the group embarks on the park’s very fist guided tour, when everything goes atrociously wrong… Brachiosaurs may very well be cute an’ all, but when faced with the real deal, can man survive world’s fiercest predator? And in 3D on top of it all?
Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece is back on our screens to amaze a new generation of kids not yet aware of the just how scary a few dinosaurs can be. The 3D doesn’t really add much to the mindboggling original special effects - a wondrous mix of animatronics and CGI - but the pleasure of reliving one of Film’s most entertaining adventures on the big screen is priceless. Twenty years after the film’s release, the dinos’ realism is as stunning as ever. The magical atmosphere Splieberg created with the help of John Williams’ magnificent soundtrack, a sense of pacing no one can equal and some pretty perfect characters (yes Goldblum, you and you glasses will forever be cool) still jolts the audience with excitement and exhilarating fear. Even the approximate plot and the creepy ever-smiling kids don’t matter; when it comes to rides, Jurassic Park is as thrilling as it gets.
Fuck it. I’m just gonna get drunk and watch Die Hard now.
Spike Lee, the daft crusader, out to get everyone not actually wrong, has attacked Django Unchained, a film he did not and will not see, for being …*drumroll*.. racist.
BAFM in Django Unchained
“I can’t speak on it ‘cause I’m not going to see it”
So shut up then init?
” I am not going to see [‘Django Unchained’]. I am not seeing it. It would be disrespectful to my ancestors to see that film. (…) “American slavery was not a Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It was a Holocaust. My ancestors are slaves. Stolen from Africa. I will honor them”
he blabed anyway in addition to something about the characters in the movie using the N word too much.
Quentin Tarantino answered he would not apologize, explaining:
“I think it’s kind of ridiculous, because no one can actually say that we use the word more than it was used in 1858 in Mississippi. So since they can’t say that, what they’re basically [saying] is I should lie. I should pretty it up. I should lie, and I don’t lie when it comes to my characters and the stories I tell.”
Spike Lee has said on many occasions that Tarantino (of all people) is a racist. Clint Eastwood and Walt Disney too.
Remember that time he almost got that nice elderly couple killed? That was fun. He’s probably right.
(samples right here)
It can be pretty similar in the movie journalism industry.
Allow me to weigh in.
