Hit: Juras­sic World

Who can forget the fa­mil­iar Juras­sic Park theme? It still gives us goose­bumps and trans­ports us back to child­hood. The clas­sic re­turned this year with a se­quel, Juras­sic World. The plot re­volved around the re-open­ing of the orig­i­nal park – with a twist at the end. The movie was ev­ery­thing fans ex­pected, with high qual­ity CGI and the lov­able Chris Pratt ( Guardians of the Galaxy) play­ing the lead.

Miss: Fan­tas­tic Four

“Fail” is the word that de­scribes the hor­ri­ble stum­ble made by this movie, which ev­ery su­per­hero fan had been an­tic­i­pat­ing. The Marvel Comics adap­ta­tion was sup­posed to make au­di­ences sit at the edge of their seats. In­stead for the Marvel Cin­e­matic Uni­verse (which it ex­ists out­side of, due to stu­dio deals), let’s hope that the se­quel planned for 2017 can do bet­ter.
