    This is my review of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens movie, a futuristic fantasy adventure movie from 2015. It's about the Resistance rebels trying to protect the New Republic from the superweapon of the First Order. The film is visually okay, the actors and the action scenes are good. The storytelling is lacking, the characters and the story is not very interesting. I did not enjoy the The Force Awakens film, but I can imagine some could find some it good.

    This is my review of the Grave Encounters movie, a found footage style horror movie from 2011. It's about a film crew investigating a haunted house. After a weak beginning, the story gets slighty better, but the Grave Encounters film was still a disappointing experience for me.

    This is my review of Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi movie, a futuristic fantasy adventure movie from 2017. It's about the Resistance rebels defending against the First Order rebels. It's a visually nice movie, with great action scenes, without any substantial story or logic behind it. I was somewhat disappointed by the The Last Jedi film, but even I have to admit that Disney keeps the stories very even in quality.

    "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown"

    H. P. Lovecraft

    Perhaps the most famous quote from Lovecraft. But who was he and why am I talking about it on a games website? Those who know the answer will probably smile in front of the screens (stupid question!), But those who don't, I'll open their eyes now because something is going on! Something that's not of this world!

    This is my review of Terminator: Dark Fate movie, a futuristic adventure movie from 2019. It's about a group of people trying to survive the relentless attacks of a killer robot from the future. As a fan of the first two movies, I was curious what would James Cameron do after getting back the Terminator rights due to the fumbles of the previous reboot films. I was not satisfied by the Terminator: Dark Fate film.

    This is my review of Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker movie, a futuristic fantasy adventure movie from 2019. It's about the Resistance rebels trying to protect the galaxy from the superweapon of the First Order. The film is visually astounding, the action scenes look good, though lack any kind of tension. The storytelling is also lacking, but you might enjoy it if you can sit back and don't want to think. I did not enjoy the The Rise of Skywalker film, but I can imagine some could find it interesting.

    The Jurassic Park is a novel by Michael Crichton, published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1990. The version I've read is the Hungarian edition, published by Maecenas Könyvkiadó in 1992. Jurassic Park is an adventure story, set in the near future on a dinosaur-based theme park, where everything goes wrong. Crichton's writing is captivating. He is able to show us a believable character in a page or two. I recommend the Jurassic Park book for anyone who would like to read a thrilling adventure story.

    This is my review of Seuls / Alone, a mystery / thriller movie from 2017. It's about a kids left alone in a city, trying to find out what to do. The Alone film is slow, but the story is interesting.

    Update: I've read now the graphic novel series, that the Alone film was based upon, and now the story makes a lot more sense, even though the reasons behind the happenings should have been in the movie. I'll add my new thoughts to the Alone film review.
