Jurassic Park (1993)

In this episode, SGS team is joined by Michael to discuss one of his favourite films, the #StevenSpielberg 1993 crowd pleaser #JurassicPark, starring #SamNeill (#EventHorizon, #DeathInBrunswick, #LauraDern (#Mask, #Wild) #JeffGoldblum (#TheFly, #EarthGirlsAreEasy) #SamuelLJackson (#Shaft, #SnakesOnAPlane) and #RichardAttenborough (#TheGreatEscape, #Ghandi).

 

Discussion points include: The sex appeal of Jeff Goldblum, #MichaelCrighton’s novels, as well contributions of #GeorgeLucas and #DavidKoepp. We also discuss #JamesCameron’s pitch and attempt to buy the rights, the near casting of #HarrisonFord and #ArnoldSchwarzenegger. We conclude with the flaws of the film and why audiences are so forgiving of logically fallacies and pseudoscience in #Spielberg’s film. 

 

There will be a second Jurassic Park episode, focusing on the sequels in the near future.

Watchmen (2009)

In this episode, the #SGSteam discuss #Watchmen (2009), based on #AlanMoore's #GraphicNovel, illustrated by #DaveGibbons and owned by #DCComics. The film was directed by #ZachSnyder (#300, #BatmanVSuperman), starring #BillyCrudup (#AlmostFamous, #MissionImpossible), #JackieEarlHaley (#BadNewsBears, #LittleChildren), #MalinAckerman (#Harold&Kumar, #HeartbreakKid, #ChildrensHospital),  #MathewGoode (#ImitationGame, #Stoker), with #JeffreyDeanMorgan (#Supernatural, #Extant) and #MattFrewer (#MaxHeadroom, #HoneyIShrunkTheKids).   

This episode is filled with extended rants, opinions and left wing sentimentalities. The topic of discussion was the #Watchmen film,  said a lot of hurtful things especially about the comedian. Still much praise was given but it's irrelevant soon there will be a flame war, millions will listen and send in fiery feedback because there are good films and evil ones and even in the face of dial up speeds the evil films must be punished  I shall not compromise in this.
