It’s hard to believe that 25 years ago in June of 1993, the first JURASSIC PARK film was released in movie theaters world wide. I saw it with my family at the theaters across the boulevard from my home, in Sherman Oaks, CA. I remember the mind blowing experience of seeing the amazing dinosaur F/X for the first time. Steven Spielberg opened the door to a whole new world when he created JURASSIC PARK. That film made a zillion dollars, and was the number one film of all time, for a very long time.

On May 25th 1977, the genre of science fiction changed forever. The release of what was thought to be one simple film trilogy, has now spanned over four decades, marking 2018, as the 41st year of its ongoing story, a tale that just about every generation, since its original release, has enjoyed.

That old familiar theme song queues…and we’re all once again transported to a…GALAXY FAR, FAR, AWAY… It’s hard to believe, but this year marks 40 years since the release of the very first, STAR WARS film, in 1977! I have been a major fan since day one. I saw the first film when I was 6 years old, and have been to every opening weekend, of every STAR WARS film ever since. The franchise has certainly come a long way.

In the summer of 1982, I was 11 years old. That summer you could find me at the movies more often than not. Some of the greatest films were released that year, such as E.T., Poltergeist, The Thing, and many others. However, one of the biggest science fiction blockbusters from that year released was Blade Runner, so you could bet I’d be there.

This third, and final film of the franchise, so they say, is the sequel to 2011′s, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, and 2014′s, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, both successful films, and this new film, is no exception.

It has been twenty years since the first Independence Day hit the big screen. With an all-star cast, and Will Smith, ID ruled the box office in 1996. As I say it’s twenty years later, and the aliens want their revenge. Like the tag line says: ‘We had twenty years to get ready“, but the question is, are they? With no Will Smith, a confusing plot, and lack of character development, IDR isn’t quite the sequel we hoped for.

The film begins with a young woman, Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who has decided to leave her relationship. She packs her bags and goes. Later that night, on a dark and deserted Louisiana highway, Michelle’s car is hit, knocking her unconscious. She later awakens in an unfamiliar place, an underground bunker.

Director Ridley Scott is no stranger to Science Fiction films. He has brought us many great films but he is known for his Syfy hit Alien (1979), Blade Runner (1982), and Prometheus (2012) which were huge box office hits and way ahead of their time. Scott brings us back to the syfy universe with his latest film, The Martian. Based on Andy Weir’s 2011 best-seller, this is an epic film on the grandest scale with amazing vision, Special Effects, and music set to an incredible story that sucks you in and cheering on the main character of Mark Watney (played by Matt Damon) till the very end.

Usually, the first thing one thinks of when they hear “sequel” or “reboot” is that, It’s not going to be as good as the first one (original). Well, I’m here to tell you folks that we have a winner with MAD MAX:FURY ROAD.

Back in 2005, director Christopher Nolan decided to take over the Batman franchise and begin what would be his, “Dark Knight Trilogy”. No one knew what to expect back then. Fanboys of the Tim Burton Batman films of the late 1980′s/early 1990′s, screamed because they thought their beloved franchise would be ruined. Instead it became the biggest and most amazing superhero franchise to date.
