This week on End Credits it’s din-o-mania! If it’s summer, then it’s time to start running and screaming from CGI dinosaurs, and that’s what will happen again with our review of Jurassic World Dominion, the sixth in the series. Before that we will go back to the summer of 1993 and talk not about the original Jurassic Park, but other non-dinosaur movies from that year.
This Wednesday, June 15, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
Class of ’93. Famously, the original Jurassic Park cam out in the summer of 1993, and it easily won the box office. Jurassic Park director Steven Spielberg released a second movie that year, the Holocaust drama Schindler’s List, which secured the director’s place as both a commercial and an artistic filmmaker. That’s one way that 1993 was a consequential year for movies, and we will pull a couple of other titles that are worth a revisit.
REVIEW: Jurassic World: Dominion (2022). In a world where humans and dinosaurs have been thrown together in the same spaces, only one thing can save us: Nostalgia for a 30-year-old movie! All your favourite (?) Jurassic World characters team up with the stars of the original Jurassic Park for a globe-trotting adventure through a world turned upside down now that dinosaurs (and giant killer locusts) are back in the mix. The film is guaranteed to be a massive box office hit, but is this a movie worthy of all that cash, or even worth seeing at all?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
