We’re Just Living In Their “Jurassic World”

Movie Review by Jack Silbert
Jurassic World set an all-time box office record by raking in $208,806,270 over its opening weekend, not to mention another six bucks from me the following Tuesday. (That’s the bargain day at my local theater.) Now, I wasn’t a guaranteed audience member. Sure, I saw Jurassic Park back in 1993, and I liked it a lot. But I didn’t see The Lost World sequel in ’97, and even Steven Spielberg didn’t really show up for part III in 2001.

Playing Today: “Tomorrowland”

Movie Review by Jack Silbert
If a family trip to Tomorrowland at Disney World or Disneyland isn’t in the cards this Memorial Day weekend, will a visit to Tomorrowland at the multiplex suffice? Well, there is a lot of good stuff in it, but some not-so-good stuff too. I suppose in the end, it will depend on how much your kids appreciate a convoluted storyline.

It’s Sponge-Worthy, “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water”

Movie Review by Jack Silbert
OK, OK, I was two weeks late seeing this, I apologize, the weather has been rough and maybe, just maybe, I was catching up on grown-up movies from 2014 that weren’t actually released until 2015. (That is totally cheating in my book, and you filmmakers are very lucky that I don’t get a vote in the Academy Awards.)
