Our plan is to watch The Lost World: Jurassic Park sometime between now and Wednesday in anticipation of Jurassic Park III. If we went into that theater without immediate prior knowledge of its preceeding films, I'm sure we'd be completely lost by the complexity of the story. "Why are those dinosaurs chasing the people? What's their motivation?"
As if. It's really like this geeky home theater ritual. We'll be watching Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma just before Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back comes out next month (Any Kevin Smith fans who want to join us for the marathon?). We recently checked out Planet of the Apes and the forgettable Rollerball in preparation for this summer's revisits.
Why is Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within getting such bad reviews? I loved it. Did the pretty animation make me blind to a stupid movie?
