    ★★★★ Watched 29 Aug, 2015

    The film is understated almost to a fault, but faulting Rampling and Courtenay here is impossible.

    Jurassic World 2015

    Watched 13 Jun, 2015

    Say what one might about the characters in the original Jurassic Park, but one thing they weren't was stupid. Jurassic World, on the other hand...

    It doesn't so much milk the nostalgic teat as kill the nostalgic cow, peel off the nostalgic cow hide and parade around in it, bellowing "Look how much I look like the original film, but with a difference!" and then winks.

    Its CGI is retrograde, as are its gender politics. One reason you shouldn't mistake…
