JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM – In Theaters June 22, 2018
I was happy with how The Incredibles balanced family friendly programming with a slight edge, where in one scene Elastigril (Holly Hunter) tells her kids something like, “This isn’t a movie, if the bad guys have a chance, they will kill you.” With a commanding cast led by Craig T. Nelson as the hunk with a heart, Mr. Incredible who tried to keep his powers under control as he dealt with the overpowering pangs of nostalgia – while convincing his family that they had to keep stifling their greatness.
And when The Incredibles ended, we learned the big reveal that the Parr’s newborn also possessed some unique gifts. I never thought they would actually make a sequel, but now I am really excited to see where it goes from here.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
“FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD” is being directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling, and produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.
Swift take: I typically avoid these kinds of movies featuring dogs, because well, I am human and I know how all these dog films tug at your heart strings. I know some people that refuse to watch films about man’s best friend for that very reason. Alpha appears to have a Clan of the Cave […]
This film looks to be billed as a horror film, where I am assuming the presence of ghosts will be very real. I am thrilled to see that and am praying it won’t be one of those films that focuses more on the struggle of proving her sanity. I am reminded of The Exorcism of Emily Rose, which was a decent courtroom drama, but they sold it as a horror flick . . . which it wasn’t. If CBS Films decides to turn this film into a preachy mess and skimps on the spirits, it will irk me to no end. If they manage to balance all the different elements, it could be a real winner with cinephiles like me.
