We had speculated what the fifth Jurassic Park movie was going to be called for a long time with names like Jurassic Park 5, Jurassic World 2, Jurassic War, Jurassic _____, Epoch, Ancient Futures and we finally got the name alongside the new poster which was Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. But is it a good title?
If we take a look at the history of the film franchise we can see that Jurassic Park has never had any consistency in the titles. As a kid I was always bothered by The Lost World: Jurassic Park as I wanted the title to be Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Of course back then I didn’t know that the book sequel didn’t even include the Jurassic Park moniker and only went for the generic The Lost World title. Then we had Jurassic Park 3 which got rid of the subtitles and went with the three claw marks ///. Jurassic World was once again the name of park in the movie even if it did drop Park from the franchises name. And with Fallen Kingdom we can see that the only logic recurring theme is the inconsistency. Continue reading Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom; What’s in a title?→
As I posted I’m trying to learn French over the next year. In honor of this this weeks Music Match features three music videos of songs in french, so you get to learn some new vocabulary and discover some new bands this week. I don’t normally post lyrics but as part of the learning process they’re there in French with the English translation.
Mokèlé-mbèmbé the Cryptoid Loch Ness Monster from Africa that is supposed to exist is not that famous but has always made my imagination run wild. I was able to find two movies that dealt with this creature from the Congo that were released nearly 30 years apart but not quite like a clean release gap like with Dinosaur Island. So let’s take a quick look at them and see if they’re worth your time if you want some dinosaur movie action.
We have two movies called Dinosaur Island and they were released exactly 20 years apart, both were lower budget films with a limited release but since there really aren’t that many dinosaur movies out there, let’s take a look at how they are and if either of them is worth watching and just how much those two decades changed brought us two very different films.
It’s always important to better ourselves and learn new things and because of it I decided to set a new goal for me: To learn French in one year. Over the next 364 days I will be practicing french daily throughout different means to get better at the four skills, speaking, writing, listening and reading.
For a little background, I’m not starting from zero, I’d consider myself almost at an intermediate level. I studied French for 3 years back in High School but of course I didn’t learn how to speak it and it was quite a few years ago. I then studied it for a year and a half about 4 years ago and started studying again since last fall, now I haven’t been the best student and classes are only twice a week for 4 months of the year so while helpful, they aren’t the best if you really want to learn at a faster pace and it leaves a lot of room to get unmotivated.
Atari teased that they were working on a new console apparently called the Ataribox but not much else was said. Many speculated how it would be able to compete with Sony and Microsoft while others thought it would be something akin to the NES CLassic from Nintendo. None of those seems quite likely though.
The history of Atari is a long and convoluted one. But to summarize it down the company has had various deaths over the years, from the first one in the video game crash, to the second one after the crash and it was divided up and sold as parts. So for many years we had Atari which was run by a French company called Infogrames that only used the name they had acquired from Hasbro Interactive while the heart of Atari couldn’t be called Atari but was still releasing games under different names including Midway West. And a bankruptcy not too long ago. Continue reading What is the Ataribox & Can Atari make a comeback despite its history?→
