Frequencies Movie Review

Standard

“Frequencies” (2013) was pretty weird. I tried to figure out what was going on for a good portion of the movie, and then wasn’t satisfied with the way it came to an end. It was an interesting concept to have people judged on their “frequencies” (I think they are like I.Q.s), but the plot twists were confusing.

From a writer’s perspective and a reader, confusing the audience isn’t the way to capture them. I do enjoy romance, and true love rules all, but even the twists within the romance were unsatisfying.

Though a short review, that’s all I have on this movie.

Jurassic World

Standard

I watched Jurassic World over the weekend and here is my review of it, from a writer’s point of view (and of course from a movie lover’s POV).

Firstly, this movie stayed true to the prior movies in two ways.

One, similar plot line, especially to Jurassic Park, the first movie: People with great ambitions for their park, meddling with nature, and nature literally bites back.

The second thing, it paid tribute to the previous movies, by showing a reminiscent scene of the old “Jurassic Park.” I’m easily moved by movies, and this was spot on for me to pull at the heartstrings.

The technology was cool. I heard the cgi might be too evident. I really didn’t see it. And WOW the improvements from puppets to cgi was excellent. Aside from cgi, the ball rolling contraption was neat. I want one.

From a writer’s perspective, this movie had it all from a predictable plot progression to a little romance, humor, and the ending tied up nicely. Overall, I was very impressed and will add this to my top movies list.
