As we get closer to the 91st Annual Academy Awards, we’re seeing more shortlists for Oscar Nominees, today we have the shortlist for Visual Effects. (aka the films you actually saw this year)
Full disclosure: I have not seen nor did I intend to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom…it looks bad. My first thought when I saw the teaser trailer was, “What is something new and invigorating they could bring into this franchise?” The answer is nothing.
The latest entry in the Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is currently in theaters. The film picks up after the events of Jurassic World and sees the return of Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire Dearing and Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady, who reunite to help save the dinosaurs on Isla Nubar when the volcano on the island threatens their existence. As always with the Jurassic Park films, things don’t exactly go as planned, and the cast turns into prey for various dinosaurs including the new, genetically manufactured Indoraptor. Be warned: we’re going to get into some spoilers here.
