Jurassic Park Trilogy
DVD | Blu-Ray | Blu-ray Gift Set
Directed by Steven Spielberg, Joe Johnston
Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore, Pete Postlethwaite
Universal Studios Home Entertainment
Release Date: October 25, 2011

When attempting to look critically at a piece of cinema like the Jurassic Park franchise, particularly the feature that started it off, a person from this writer’s generation must not only judge the features on singular scales of quality, but must also get past one huge roadblock: nostalgia.

I don’t know how many people who will read this are in a similar boat, but the Jurassic Park franchise is one of the first true-blue cinematic experience of this generation. Coming out in 1993, Jurassic Park played as the first real memorable cinematic experience for this generation, imprinting an eye of grandeur and spectacle on a group of people, so much so that the repercussions are still being felt today. Hell, it’s also a genuinely fantastic feature film.

Week of Geek: Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger
Directed by Joe Johnston
Starring Chris Evan, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Tommy Lee Jones
Release Date: July 22, 2011

In 1992, 9-year-old me entered a video store and struck gold. Among the shelves and shelves of VHS tapes was a single copy of Captain America: The Movie. Already a comic (not to mention Captain America) fan, you can only imagine how excited I was to view what I assumed would be a masterpiece. The movie was anything but and left much to be desired, but 9-year-old me loved the hell out of it. Despite its shortcomings and flaws, watching Captain America throw his shield for the first time just blew my mind. Fast forward to nearly 20 years later, I wondered if the latest Marvel Studios movie, Captain America: The First Avenger would do the very same thing.

With America just stepping into World War II, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) wanted nothing more than to serve his country. Despite being constantly rejected by recruitment agencies due to his meek size, Rogers’ unflagging persistence pays off and catches the attention of a scientist by the name of Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci). Erskine enlists him in a top secret super solider program. Injected with a Super-Soldier serum and bathed in “Vita Rays,” Rogers is transformed into a perfect human specimen. He becomes more than just a super soldier, but a symbol for America. He becomes Captain America.

New Image Of Bucky From ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

Steve Rogers And Bucky BarnesMarvel has released a new image from the forthcoming film Captain America: The First Avenger showing Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and his sidekick Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) walking against a crowd of soldiers on a U.S. Army base.

Whenever I hear the word “sidekick” mentioned within a superhero movie I immediately tense up and have horrible images of Joel Schumacher’s Batman and Robin flash through my mind. Fortunately, having seen the war-hardened expression on Stan’s face made me breathe a sigh of relief.

It seems director Joe Johnston has taken care to see that Bucky has none of the campy, cartoonish stigma we’ve come to expect from sidekicks.

Exclusive Set Photos: ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ Filming In Manchester

Captain AmericaThe Dale Street Journal: The Filming of Captain America: The First Avenger in Manchester

The following is an account of the filming in Manchester, UK, of the upcoming 2011 Marvel movie Captain America: The First Avenger, which includes exclusive photos from the set. The film is directed by Joe Johnston (The Rocketeer, Jurassic Park 3) with a $140 million budget and has Chris Evans (Fantastic Four, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) in the title role. Now readers, I will keep it informative and humorous, with the anecdotes coming think and fast, and remember — when the production needed somewhere cheap that could masquerade as 1940s New York that they could blow seven shades of shit out of… they came to Manchester, England. The Forbidden Planet store only 5 minutes walk from the set seemingly had nothing advertising the fact… strange.

‘The Buildup’

I was oblivious. I was informed by a work colleague that on the one day I had off from work was the one day I missed the article in the Manchester Evening Newspaper [Thursday September 9th, 2010, page 24] in the Northern Quarter of Manchester on Dale Street — the bohemian beatnik center of the city, iconoclastic famous and championed by the infamous ‘sons’ from the band ‘Oasis’, that filming is to begin… something I can guarantee you DOES NOT happen that regularly in the the North West of England — granted the last two movies filmed here was the Alfie remake with Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr’s Sherlock Holmes, both of which flew past without so much of a mention, not that Jude Law is worth a mention…

SDCC 2010: First Glimpse Of ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

SDCC 2010: Marvel Captain America Panel: Chris Evans 03Fans saw their first glimpse of Captain America: The First Avenger at Marvel Studios panel today at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con.

The teaser trailer opened with lots of red, white, and blue imagery over top old World War II footage of soldiers marching in line and iconic imagery, like Hilter walking in Paris and U.S. soldiers rising the flag at Iwo Jima. The old video footage plays as FDR’s famous “Infamy Speech” is in voiceover.

When the black and white footage ends, we see the Captain America shield symbol, and then Captain America for the first time in a baggy unflattering suit, and finally the shield which is hurdled at the camera to end the clip.

The first glimpse of Captain America’s suit looked much like the prototype sketches that previously leaked online. The “mask” is more akin to something out of the Ultimates version rather than the classic suit that features tiny wings on the head.

Stanley Tucci Joins The Cast Of ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

The Movie God   |  @   |

Marvel Studios has announced that Stanley Tucci has officially joined the cast of one of their two massive comic book titles arriving next summer, Captain America: The First Avenger. Tucci is reportedly playing Dr. Abraham Erskine, one of the German scientists involved in what the comics called “Project Rebirth,” which is what lead to the creation of the super soldiers that turned Steve Rogers into Captain America during World War II.

Tucci is of course one of the great character actor who’s always good in any and everything that he does, no matter what the movie is or how good or bad it is. Some of his notable performances have come in titles like The Pelican Brief, The Imposters, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, Big Trouble, Road to Perdition, The Devil Wears Prada, and of course, his Oscar-nominated turn in Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones.

‘Captain America’ Casts Toby Jones To Play The Villain Zola

The Movie God   |  @   |

Zola

Joe Johnston isn’t settling for one villain in his upcoming Marvel Studios comic book adaptation, Captain America. The director has grabbed Toby Jones to play a second baddie, named Arnim Zola.

Zola was an evil biochemist during World War II,who figured out a way to take everything about a person’s mental signature and basically burn them into a cloned brain. His work was sometimes funded by Red Skull, who was the first villain cast in Captain America, to be played by Hugo Weaving (Lord of the Rings, The Matrix).

Zola’s desire to play God was put to use for none other than Adolf Hitler, whose brain patterns were imprinted onto what became Hate-Monger so that Hitler could live on in the event of his own death. He even burned himself into his own new body, which looks similar the body that Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles walked around in, only more robotic.
