Horner

I was sad yesterday to hear of the death of James Horner.  After John Williams, he is up there with Jerry Goldsmith and Hans Zimmer among my favourite Hollywood composers.  Ok so Titanic might have had a lot to do with that - loved that soundtrack.  Knew that music well enough to be able to pick his music in other movies without even knowing it was him.

He was born exactly twenty years before me.  Rest in peace.

Jurassic World

Jurassic WorldLast night the little brother and I went along to see Jurassic World

I really enjoyed it.

Of course it's completely ridiculous, but that's what you expect from this style of Hollywood popcorn movie.

Actually really the only completely "yeah right" moment for me was twenty-two year old batteries and fuel that still worked.  Oh and the transition from bright daylight to night time instantly.

It was possibly a little slow to start but built up and built up.

And plenty of nods to the original 1993 movie.

And they used a lot of John Williams' music which was awesome.

Plenty of predictability, but really just a lot of fun.  If you don't mind seeing lots of people being eaten heh.
