Jurassic World: new images

21 years ago I watched Jurassic Park for the very first time. I was 8 and in the cinema with my cousins and my brother. Up until that point in my short life, I never truly understood fear. I was petrified. I ran to the toilet several times, unsure of where else I could escape the images and sounds of the mighty T-Rex and it wasn’t until years later that I finally watched the film in full. I’m truly glad that I did, it’s remarkable even to this day, it looks and sounds amazing and it hasn’t aged at all. The dinosaurs move as you would expect them to, sound as you want them to, frankly I wouldn’t change a thing. Maybe have even more of the Goldblum but the fact that he’s in that film at all is a dam good thing. Love that guy.

And now we find ourselves a couple of pretty disappointing sequels later, the last being way back in 2001, and we have Jurassic World coming out next year. It’s been a long time since I watched any of the Jurassic films, I may re-visit them before this one comes out. Jurassic World has been plagued by production and pre-production problems, but it seem as if those horrible days of will they / won’t they make the film are all over. Here are a few on set photos with the new stars of this franchise. Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt. We also have some concept art with the centre itself and a couple of images of the map of Jurassic World.

My 100th Post

This is my 100th blog post. It’s been a long road to get to this point but I think it’s been worth it. Recently I’ve started to follow more and more bloggers on WordPress as well as Twitter and it’s one hell of a community. There are some really wonderful film blogs out there, some very alternative ones, some interesting mainstream ones, those which cover classic films, the ones who love the indies. I urge you to check them out, here’s a few links to some really good ones I’ve seen.

I have done a lot too, been to so many things, events, cinemas, just had a great time since I started this blog. I’ve been to the London Film Festival twice (first time getting to meet Marion Cotillard and then meeting Ralph Fiennes), visited the brilliant and gorgeous Aubin Cinema, returned to the IMAX twice in one year (once for the Dark Knight Rises and once for Gravity), finally made it to the Rooftop Cinema Club in Shoreditch, been to the Harry Potter World at the Warner Brother Studios in Watford, watched countless films, bought countless DVDs (my collection recently surpassed 400), went to my very first film marathon at the Prince Charles Cinema, went to the awful Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad, got to go to the James Bond in Motion exhibition, Sundance London’s first and second year and the VFX Festival which I didn’t even know existed until a few weeks before I went.  Here’s a few photos from the past two years

For this post, I wanted to include something a bit random and special. Vue Cinemas have kindly provided me with a link to this make-up tutorial to create a high street look similar to that of Angelina Jolie’s in Disney’s new film, Maleficent. A really good video tutorial with the talented Marcos Gurgel who has worked on several diverse projects including The Voice, Strictly Come Dancing, and on titles such as Radio Times, Sunday Times and OK! magazine. He has recently worked on shows during London and Paris Fashion weeks. Have a look below

I also wanted to include a few other images which I’ve seen recently, it’s a mix of all odds and sods, some new films, posters, random images of actors and the Batman exhibition opening in LA. Fingers crossed they bring that here.

As for the future of this blog, don’t worry this isn’t where I will sign off for good. In fact not a tall. I’ve got plenty of ideas coming up including an online film festival, visiting more unusual cinemas, going to more film festivals in London and around the country, interviews with those who are up and coming in the movie industry, once again staying up for the Oscars and just so much more I don’t want to tell you about just yet!

Thanks for reading and as ever, Keep. It. Reel
