I’m not one for the over-dramatized, based on a true story kind of movie. But for most of them, there is something special and inspirational that makes me want to know more about the subject’s story. Case in point, Hacksaw Ridge.
Now I didn’t know anything about Desmond Doss’ harrowing story of how he refused to take up arms during World War II, but ended up saving multiple lives during the Battle of Okinawa. But to see it on the big screen was something else. The fact that it was also directed by Mel Gibson did add some concern to it, given his outrageous behavior and reputation. Still, the film managed to meet my expectations. Check out my review below.

After Pitch Perfect and Entourage the last two weeks, the Screen Junkies guys debut this afternoon The Lost World: Jurassic Park trailer, mocking Steven Spielberg’s 1997 sequel to the legendary 1993 hit Jurassic Park. In fact the sequel thing is the first thing they poke fun, relating Lost World to one of the unnecessary Jaws sequels. Narrator Jon Bailey also asks a question I always pondered:
“Why isn’t the title Jurassic Park 2: Lost World?”
