Jurassic World : Fallen Kingdom (2018)

It’s tricky to make the 2nd instalment for a Trilogy, without it seeming like a bridge. This film, though relying vaguely on the back story of Jurassic World, stands confidently on its own while engaging the audience.

It’s a step forward in the area of genetic engineering, and sets up a simplistic plot to get the dinosaurs off the island. What ensues is some nurturing, some comedy, and some dare-devil acts never attempted before.

The result? Some decent twists and turns while keeping the human quotient intact. We feel for the survival and extinction of the species in an empathetic light.

Bridge of Spies (2015)

Talk about Magic in the Muggle world! Steven Spielberg surely is a magician!

He weaves and creates Cold War USA and other locations with unerring ease. He builds a drama at a leisurely and rich pace. With the piercingly honest Tom Hanks he brings to the fore the nuances of a brilliant actor. Mark Rylance brings a mysterious clarity to his role, and a host of supporting actors add to the crisply edited proceedings.

Rooting his drama in history and fact, we are quickly unaware that we are watching a film. Every frame is authentic, there is massive attention to detail alongside a firm grip on the plot and screen play.

A cinematic experience, a sensitive decisive movie which is a treat for the senses!
