Movies on Blu-ray

Jurassic World (Colin Trevorrow) Rated PG-13 [124 min] – Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly. Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Nick Robinson

Jurassic World is an overly bloated sequel machine that never reaches the level of visual storytelling that Jurassic Park is able to achieve. There are no characters to truly resonate with, especially the kids, and the “villain’s” intentions are severely underwritten and almost cartoonish. The entire time while watching Jurassic World it felt as though Trevorrow was angry at the state of the industry and wanted to make it his mission to metaphorically comment on how corporate Hollywood has become. My positive feelings toward this film have greatly waned since I saw it in theaters. It’s a giant spectacle over-hyped by nostalgia.

Special features include:

  • Welcome to Jurassic World
  • Jurassic World: All-Access Pass
  • Innovation Center Tour with Chris Pratt
  • Jurassic’s Closest Shaves
  • Dinosaurs Roam Once Again
  • Chris & Colin Take on the World
  • Delete Scenes

The Vatican Tapes (Mark Neveldine) Rated PG-13 [91 min] – A priest and two Vatican exorcists must do battle with an ancient satanic force to save the soul of a young woman. Starring Olivia Taylor Dudley, Michael Peña, Dougray Scott, and Djimon Hounsou

Can we please stop with the demonic/satanic possession movies. There’s no original thoughts ehre, the scares are all predictable, and there’s nothing new this movie is trying to say. Granted, The Vatican Tapes does end on a unique turn of events, but the entire time it’s as if you’re watching someone tick off boxes from an exorcism checklist.

Special features include:

  • Audio Commentary with Director Mark Neveldine, Cinematographer Gerardo Madrazo and Actress Olivia Taylor Dudley
  • “Tale of the Tapes” Featurette
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Extended Scenes

Back to the Future: 30th Anniversary Trilogy Edition (Robert Zemeckis) Rated PG [116/108/118 min] – A young man is accidentally sent 30 years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his friend, Dr. Emmett Brown, and must make sure his high-school-age parents unite in order to save his own existence. Starring Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Thomas F. Wilson, Crispin Glover, Claudia Wells, and Mary Steenburgen

This is one of the best trilogies ever made. Period. End of discussion.

The Wolfpack (Crystal Moselle) [Limited] Rated R [80 min] – Locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed, ‘The Wolfpack,’ the brothers spend their childhood reenacting their favorite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes. Their world is shaken up when one of the brothers escapes and everything changes. Starring Bhagavan Angulo, Govinda Angulo, Jagadisa Angulo, and Krsna Angulo

I’m not a documentary guy. I enjoy the good ones, but it takes a lot of energy for me to want to watch them. That being said, The Wolfpack is a fascinating true tale that feels unbelievable. The story is absolutely shocking to digest and the way the family presents itself and tells their story is simply incredible. You can’t take your eyes off the screen, every word must be heard.
