Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

I managed to catch an early screening of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom late Thursday night. I enjoyed the movie a great deal. When I saw the opening scene, with the Mosasaurus (the crocodile-like dino with the fins that swims through the water), which is one of my favorite dinosaurs, I realized that this movie was going to be good. I didn't think they would have been able to get the Mosasaurus back in this one, but the fact that they did so made me very happy.

The dinosaur action is fun and very imaginative. The CGI effects were very crisp and realistic--with everything from a raging volcano to raging dinosaurs, it was all very well done. The dinosaur fan within me was pleased.

The only problem I have is that Fallen Kingdom is a little too familiar to The Lost World: Jurassic Park in terms of plot. But, it still breaks away from the "running from the dinos in the jungle" story trope in a very nice way. And the ending opens up the series in a new direction that looks pretty exciting. All in all, I liked Lost Kingdom a great deal.

There's also some bondage in the film, although it's very slight. Daniella Pineda, who plays Zia Rodriguez, is captured by the bad guys. She's standing with her arms behind her back at one point. We don't see any bonds, but the implication is pretty obvious that she's tied. Later, she's seen handcuffed with one wrist to a cage containing a dinosaur. The handcuffs on her wrist are clearly seen. A dinosaur flick with something for everybody? What's not to love?

How now brown Tau?

Maika Monroe, from It Follows, stars in a new thriller on Netflix. Her new film is called Tau, and she appears to be the unwilling guest of a scientist who wants to perform experiments on her.

As these pictures show, there's plenty of bondage in this one. She also goes barefoot, as well.

It debuts on Netflix June 29. I'm looking forward to seeing this, and not just for the usual reasons. Tau looks like it might be an interesting story, overall. We shall see.

Jurassic Terror

A babe in a bikini (well, half of a bikini) goes for a walk on a nice, secluded beach...only to find herself bound, gagged, caged, and with a dinosaur peeking in at her! What the hell, man?! The travel agent never mentioned anything about this happening! To see the Jurassic horrors in my latest Poser picture, just go here.

Deratting Amy

Amy Madison (played by Elizabeth Anne Warren) was a witch who went up against Buffy The Vampire Slayer and lost--by being turned into a rat.

In the sixth season episode, Smashed (ep. 9), Amy is permanently changed back into human form by Willow, and there's this wonderful scene of her sitting on a bed.

Newly dressed (she was naked when she first changed back) Amy sits on the bed in pure bewilderment as Willow tries to make her as comfortable as possible.

I just love the way she's sitting here, in a position of pure vulnerability and confusion.

It was also cool how Buffy revisited villains from prior seasons, such as here.

The (flying?) Nun

OK, so it looks like each of the creeps from the Conjuring films are getting their own films, including the Nun. She was the really creepy specter who haunted Vera Farmiga in The Conjuring 2 (Electric Boogaloo). Now, in her own film, the Nun is haunting Taissa Farmiga.

Is there some reason why the Nun is only going after members of the Farmiga family? Do they owe her money, or something? All will be revealed, I suppose, when this comes out in September. Although I didn't like Annabelle, I really enjoyed the Conjuring movies very much, so I'm willing to give this a shot.

Three Days

Three Days is a political thriller that takes place in South Korea when the life of their president is threatened.

The damsel in this clip is a perky (the bad guys would think she's pesky) reporter who gets captured straight out of her hospital room.

She's left tied barefoot to a chair in an office, where the lead villain gloats at her. But he leaves her alone, which enables her to try and break free (sort of like a South Korean version of Nancy Drew). You can download this clip right here.

Space Cavegirl

It's a nice, late spring day, which led me to thinking it would be a perfect time to see a jungle girl flitting through the wilderness.

Or, they could be carried through the foliage while tied to a pole.

Here's a scene of actress Zienia Merton, as Sandra from the SF series Space 1999, being carried off by cave dwellers in the episode "The Full Circle."

These pictures are presented here because, why the heck not?

Speaking of jungle girls, the latest Ryta novel is going well. I'm about halfway through it now, and I even have an idea for the book to come after this one. If you haven't read my Ryta The Jungle Girl books, you can start with the first one right here.
