It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

The way this works is that you post a review of the best film you watched this week. It doesn't have to be a new release, just any film you have seen over the last seven days that you feel is worth talking about. Here are some rules.
1. Check to see if your favourite film of last week has been posted already.
2. Please post your favourite film of last week.
3. NO TV SHOWS!
4. ALWAYS use spoiler tags. Report any comments that spoil recent / little-known films (e.g. Solo, First Reformed, Hereditary) without using the spoiler tag.
5. Comments that only contain the title of the film will be removed!
Here are some low effort comments from this week's thread that I will boldly predict:

Have fun and play nice!
Thought of this when, yesterday, I showed two of my friends the movie Eraserhead. While both didn't outright hate the movie, they certainly didn't like it as much as I thought they would.
So when you decided to show a movie to a friend, significant other, family member, etc; how bad was their response?
An example - 50 First Dates. Seems like a relatively happy ending, but when you think about it, it's fairly horrific for Drew Barrymore's character. She wakes up every day with a stranger and some kids that claim they're hers, she gets shown a video tape of what's happened to her, but her only recognisable loved ones like her father and brother are on the other side of the world and can't console her, every day she would be on the verge of a full blown panic attack over not knowing what's real.
Another example - Source Code. Not only did he just create multiple alternate realities, but he ends up in the body of somebody he barely knows anything about. The ramifications of that are crazy. The girl he's going out with thinks he's someone else, his family doesn't know their actual loved one's body and mind has been taken over by an impostor. Then there's the mental state of the lead character, every day, he'll wake up in the wrong body, in the wrong life, in the wrong reality, it would surely be enough to make you go insane.
Any others you can think of?
The actor/model who portrayed Ra and also received a Oscar nomination Jaye Davidson was really one of my favorite villains in cinema growing up.
The film in itself is a pretty fun interesting and entertaining ride but his performance stands out. A lot of the more nuanced things about it at the time such as his ability to transcend masculine and feminine traits were missed out during that time.
But from his menacing voice pitched low to his regal evilness his that character is a real marvel to watch still to this day.
Note: You can even advocate for dramatic cut-jobs to make movies the best they could have been.
I just watched Django again last night and, while it's always fun and its energy carries its runtime fairly well, I couldn't help but feel there was lots of extraneous pieces that needed to be lopped off. This got me thinking about other movies that would be so much better if the fat was trimmed off or that they get completely bogged down by a side-plot/very awkward scene.
What do you guys think?
Who are some actors whose careers didn't live up to their early promise?
I thought of Tatum O'Neil, one of many acclaimed child actors who never found as much success as an adult.
Another example for me would be Guy Pearce. He's done okay for himself, but has mostly appeared in mediocre or bad movies after starring in two all-time classics, LA Confidential and Memento, early in his career and never really became a household name.
I feel like we had so many classics, from the godfather, to a bronx tale, etc. But in the past 10 years or so we haven't had anything like it. What happened? was it a culture change or is it just not profitable as it use to be anymore? I was recently watching a bunch of youtube clips from "A bronx tale" and thought i'd post this question, honestly now i'm just trying to fill the word count for this subreddit, so how was your weekend? Sunday night is always a disappointment, fuck. Webster's dictionary defines wedding as the fusing of two metals with a hot torch. So, how about that steam sale, huh? I didn't spend as much, yet.. What did you guys get on the steam summer sale? Unless you're a console player. no harm though. We're still gamers.
I've always been fascinated with the sci-fi genre as a whole, but in particular, I love movies that take place in space. And even more in particular, I like when people encounter a different species and have to deal with it.
I've seen all the Alien films (and adore most of them), and Event Horizon is my fucking jam. Looking for some other recommendations for ones I might have missed. Thanks!
