Just think of every iconic and inventive scene the franchise used and it's included or redefined for the sheer amount of nostalgia and iconic consistency. The casting within the human drama is also very well done, as well as introducing some more radical scientific findings and conflicts within the primal nature themes, added to that, there's enough exciting action all around with enough iconic motifs and symbolism. Overall, the film is too entertaining to dismiss, neither is it bad enough to make fun of. For the most part 'Jurassic World' is a really entertaining popcorn flick and a scuttle entry to the 'Jurassic Park' franchise (better than 3), and I would recommend this film for 2015's essential franchise revivals.

Call this a Pixar comeback if their previous efforts in the last few years did not satisfy the broad amount of audience satisfaction. This film takes us deep into the mind of a young girl, whose emotions control the broad epicenter of a visually inventive brain control centre. Not only does this very abstract concept a feast for the eyes, it clutches onto your heartstrings in quintessential Pixar fashion. Lavishing every frame with raw emotion and incredibly well thought out scenarios within the plot development conception, It hard to even think what other animated films may beat animation awards to come. This is an instant classic within its own right, rigor and standalone conception. A Must see for all Family and Friends to experience.

You may compare him to Michael Moore, targeting the rich profiteering from there gross income whilst ignoring their financial compensation towards the public on ordinary matters getting away with dirty deeds that have you screaming out 'Guilty". Very fascinating and insightful in scope, with enough radicalized wit and glamour of Brand's own political activism. Caution is advised as well as open minds encouraged when watching a documentary like this.

Whilst keeping to his many traditions screenwise the film has a heavy focus on drama, ideas and performances at play from the main cast. It is also quite visually striking with it story taking many plot twists and turns with its progression. This is Smart Sci-Fi at its best, small in scale but high in concept and narrative, highly recommended whether or not you see this on the big screen or not.

There's a lot to say about its nightmarish dystopian setting, pessimistic characters and overall surrealist imagery. Viewers must watch the film in order to make sense of it's plot and substantial message upon their own terms alone. I wouldn't call it David Lynch's Greatest film, but his Cult stamp on the film has left a great lasting legacy to it alone.

The themes explored include, coming of age identity, social problems within one's life and everlasting friendship. The strong visual splendor and raw emotions consistent within many of Studio Ghibli's greatest effort is present and will leave and greatly lasting impression on kids and adults alike. A Highly recommended film that must ensure Ghibli another Oscar Nomination if not a 'bloody' win competing against the likes of Disney or Pixar.
