ReelBlend Podcast #27: The Second-Best Jurassic Movie, And Schwarzenegger's Best One-Liners

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Powered by RedCircle

Is Arnold Schwarzenegger a good actor? Or is he just really good at playing Arnold Schwarzenegger?

While the action-movie icon has excelled at playing larger-than-life characters in classic films like Predator, Eraser, Total Recall and the Terminator movies (to name just a few), Arnold also has been a decent actor in solid movies over the years. But what's his BEST performance? And what is his BEST one-liner? That's this week's #Blend game on ReelBlend, and the boys have a lot of fun with it.

Before they get there, though, Sean O'Connell, Kevin McCarthy and Jake Hamilton discuss top news items. They chat about the new title, Spider-Man: Far From Home. They debate whether Indiana Jones 5 is a good idea. Kevin shares his opinion of the footage that he recently saw for Drew Goddard's Bad Night at the El Royale. And they hash out that first photo of Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio from Tarantino's upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

But this week's big conversation had to do with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which the guys finally were able to discuss in great detail... and that means SPOILERS. If you have been able to see J.A. Bayona's new sequel, give the episode a spin. Sean didn't care for it, and Jake liked it a little bit more. But Kevin really went to bat for the movie. Find out why.

This led to a heated debate over which movie the guys would label the "Best Jurassic Park sequel." They all agree that Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park is on a level all of its own. But what's the second best movie in the franchise? They all have different answers... and different reasons for giving their answers.
