Film review: Jurassic World

Thank you, Jurassic World for refreshing my irrational fear of velociraptors this weekend. Irrational because they’re extinct, that is, and because if they were real, they would only reach up to my waist or so. I think… But fear nevertheless. In the trailer they hint at the raptors having been tamed and following Chris Pratt’s orders. There’s also the Indominus Rex, this massive dinosaur genetically engineered to be bigger, bolder, meaner, so it goes to follow that’s the one you should be scared about, and don’t get me wrong, it is scary, but you know, whatever. As usual, I’m going to mention every single detail I can remember, spoilers included, so read at your own risk! We start the film with this family who are leaving on holiday, actually, just the kids.

On zombies, vampires and lore

If you’ve talked to me in the past weeks, hell, if you’ve been around me in the past few years, you have probably been hearing me rant about vampires and films  and other similar topics. I like reading (and writing) about supernatural stuff, and hey, I’m the first one who loves a good twist, but… to the whole “vampires don’t (and have never, mind you) burst into flames with the sun, they just shine bright like diamonds…” I can simply reply you gotta be kidding me.
