    The Player

    ★★★★

    Mill is a Hollywood producer who listens to screenwriters' pitches all day every day, deciding which select few will get made into movies. Mill begins receiving death threat postcards from an anonymous screenwriter he rejected. He determines disgruntled writer Kahane must be behind the postcards. Their confrontation turns deadly indeed, but not for Mill. After covering up the murder, Mill begins an affair with Kahane's girlfriend June, but he's still being sent postcards.

    In the Realm of the Senses

    ★★★★

    Based on a true story, In the Realm of the Senses — set in 1936 Tokyo — depicts the intense sexual obsession between Kichizo and Sada; the former a hotel owner, the latter one of the hotel's maids.

    In the Realm of the Senses is a psychosexual experience that borders on pornography (lots of the very explicit sex scenes are unsimulated), but if I were to call it a porno, I'd have to add to that that it's by far the most…

    They did it. It's 2015 and there's a functional Jurassic Park with living dinosaurs as the prominent attraction. They now also train weaponised velociraptors and play God creating transgenic dinosaurs more deadly even than the tyrannosaur. This can only go well.

    I'm not a Spielberg stan or anything, but the man possesses certain director qualities that are perfect for the Jurassic Park series that Colin Trevorrow simply doesn't, and one of those qualities is the ability to direct children. It's…

    The Lost World: Jurassic Park

    ★★★

    What starts out for chaos theorist Ian Malcolm and his palaeontologist girlfriend Sarah Harding as a mission to document and photograph the prehistorical wildlife on Jurassic Park’s secret second island, becomes a rescue mission when a group of malevolent hunters, sent by the company behind the park, arrive on the island as well with the goal of capturing dinosaurs to bring to the U.S. mainland for entertainment purposes.

    It's not nearly as good as the first film. It doesn't have…

    Jurassic Park III

    ★★★

    Paul and Amanda Kirby lost their son Erik on the second Jurassic Park island. They enlist the help of palaeontologist Alan Grant to rescue him, although Alan thinks he's only brought along for an aerial tour. As could be expected, things quickly turns into a survival mission.

    I'm a simple man. When I see a Jurassic Park film with Sam Neill to boot, I'm gonna have a good time with it. Jurassic Park III is the culmination of a series…
