Latest 3D Movies Review - "Jurassic World" and "San Andreas"
Jurassic World In 3D
A few weeks back, I went to the cinema to see Jurassic World in 3D. I had waited for this movie for a long time and I hoped that seeing it in 3D will be an amazing experience with all those dinosaurs and reptiles, and special effects that were supposed to blow our mind away.
To my surprise and disappointment the movie was way less than I expected it to be. There is so much technology these days and the 3D movies evolved so much and still couldn't they introduce more special effects in this movie? If this isn't the perfect subject to explore in 3D I don't know which is.
I was expecting to see things flying at me, dinosaurs up close to feel like I could reach my hand and touch them, big birds flying towards me and other cool stuffs and instead it felt like a children movie that could have easily be turned into a cartoon movie.
Maybe my expectations were too high from before going to see the movie thinking at all the cool things they could do with it and felt so disappointed to see it didn't rise to what I was expecting. I don't know, but the fact is that almost all the people I've asked about this movie said that they were expecting more from it.
It had a few funny moments. Bryce Dallas Howard, Claire in the movie was pretty cute and funny in the role, and I've liked the chemistry between her and Chris Pratt, who played Owen, but this is not enough to make a movie good. Romance is good in a movie, but when you go to a 3D one with dinosaurs you kind of expect to see more action, not care all that much about the tie between the main characters. You have chick flick movies for that, and I see things this way even if I am a girl.
Anyway, to wrap up with Jurassic World in 3D, it is a nice movie, but don't expect amazing things because it won't deliver all that much.
San Andreas In 3D
A week after seeing Jurassic World I was searching for a good 3D movie to see at the cinema. I wasn't finding anything appealing and the only things that catch my eye a little was San Andreas. I didn't know what to make of it, I watched the trailer online and didn't seem all that great. But, in the end I have decided to see it being the only one that seemed better out of the offer the cinema had.
Shortly after the movie started it totally caught my interest and I got excited for choosing to see it. It had a lot of action from start to finish, a good storyline and a lot of unpredictable moments.
I was expecting a movie with earthquakes from start to finish and this movie had so much more. I could finally say I saw a great movie. Director Brad Peyton did a really good job here.
Main characters Dwayne Johnson (Ray in the movie) and Carla Gugino (Emma) were really convincing and I have always liked how they act, but the surprise came from Alexandra Daddario (Blake) which I didn't even remember her from Percy Jackson, but was really good in this role and I will definitely remember her now. Even the kid Art Parkinson (Ollie) I found to be a great choice and convincing alongside his brother in the movie Hugo Johnstone-Burt (Ben).
This movie turned out to be a great choice and I was surprised to see that even if the trailer wasn't all that great, it really doesn't make justice to the movie, the film was truly amazing and delivered all the way.
If you haven't seen it already I recommend you do it, but in 3D, as this is all the fun in these types of movies. You can benefit from the whole experience only if you see it on a big screen in 3D. My opinion.
To Sum It All Up
The movie I was expecting to be great was kind of disappointing, especially when the trailer of the movie Jurassic World in 3D was pretty good and engaging, and the movie I chose because it seemed the less worse from all the others the cinema was offering, San Andreas in 3D, turned out to be really good.
Maybe you can't always base your decisions on the movie's trailer because, as I saw this time, the scenes chosen to be part of the trailer might not be that inspired in attracting people.
I am not saying at all that you shouldn't see Jurassic World, you should do absolutely do it. Just don't leave home with high expectations like I did because you will feel like the movie didn't deliver. It is a good movie, it just had the possibility to be great. Depending on what you are looking for and what makes a good movie in your eyes you might find things completely different, see Jurassic World as a great movie and San Andreas as an OK one. It's all in the eye of the watcher.
