As always, we start out by talking about What’s On Our Minds and what we’ve been watching lately. Chris starts us out by catching up on the Denis Villenueve films he’s missed out on with Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal while Justin revisited an old classic from The Criterion Collection, My Dinner with Andre. After seeing J.A. Bayona‘s direction in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Mike checked out another Bayona film, The Impossible starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor. We wrap up What’s On Our Minds by discussing the latest updates on Terry Gilliam‘s long awaited, seemingly doomed project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
Next, we sink our teeth into Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. This is the latest and 5th installment of the Jurassic series directed by J.A. Bayona who has previously directed films such as The Orphanage and The Impossible. Aside from Pratt and Howard, the film also features James Cromwell, Geraldine Chaplin, Rafe Spall, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Ted Levine and more! In this chapter, the former theme park island that the dinosaurs live on is threatened by a volcano eruption that will wipe out all life on the island. Pratt, Howard and others launch a rescue attempt to get as many dinosaurs as possible off the island to safety. The film has been met with mixed reviews from audiences and critics.
