Park World. John Hammond’s vision has finally come to fruition almost 20 years later and, shocker(!), it’s a complete and utter shit show for everyone involved. This is especially so if you are an executive assistant forced to babysit your bosses nephews, or just sitting in a cinema seat watching bad behavior in the audience mirror the bad behavior of park visitors onscreen. From undefined “villains” to unnecessary, slapdash discussions on divorce, the movie wants to have its cake and smash it in your face too. Sigh.
We say farewell to the characters of Westeros for another year as the final episode of Game of Thrones betrays a lot of what the show has stood for in terms of structure and promise. The finale is a bit of cluttered and rushed job. And yet, as the dust settles on the very controversial Season 5, there is a lot to love.
Lastly, we talk John Carpenter’s creature feature set in Antarctica, as well as a plug for another podcast about film background players. Also Netflix’s Bloodline Season 1.
