Movies I am Looking Forward to Watching:

Jurassic World

As a child, I was not 100% positive if dinosaurs were extinct, especially after the Jurassic Park series was released. Jurassic World is another warning to us humans to quit messing things up. Oh, how we like to create chaos and run away. I’m not expecting to be blown away. I want to be surprised and to hear and feel the deafening roar of a predator. Yes, I am slightly more inclined to watch the movie because of Chris Pratt, but it’s been 14 years since the last film came out. My excitement is dulled by the fact Spielberg is not directing. He’s the reason why Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park were fantastic. He sacrificed a fair share of logic for the sake of shock and suspense. Anyways, I hope I see a pterodactyl, my favorite dinosaur. As long as I see one, I’ll be content.

Madame Bovary

Mia Wasikowska has the facial structure and grace suitable for period movies. It was unnerving to see her in modern dress in The Kids are All Right, something was amiss. Madame Bovary is an adaptation of the book with the same name. Emma (Wasikowska) longs for a happy life in marriage and grows tired of her dull husband. She finds passion again in Leon Dupuis only to return to her depressive state. Dupuis is played by the equally striking Ezra Miller, most notably recognized in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Netflix Movie I’ll Check Out:

Two Days, One Night

Upon return after taking a leave of absence, a woman is distraught to find management offered a cash incentive to her colleagues if they claim to find her contribution worthless. With no other source of income, she has two days and one night to convince her colleagues otherwise. This movie questions humanity and whether or not her colleagues are compassionate enough to help her. In production models, lean manufacturing is the optimal solution for gaining higher profits with low overhead. Business-wise, she needs to be dismissed. On a human-level, it’s heartless. Upper management would have been blind to their production levels without her absence. Two Days, One Night asks each of us, “What would you do for money?”
