    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    ★★

    The viewer experience to the lastest installment of the Jurassic Park/World franchise can be best described with three screaming quotes from Franklin Webb, the systems analyst, during his brief time on the volcanic island of Isla Nublar:

    A Star Is Born

    You can appreciate all the effort Bradley Cooper put into this 4th modern retelling of “A Star Is Born” and how much of a passion project it was for him as shown here.

    I wasn’t blown away by Bradley Cooper or the drawl and I do wonder if his directorial debut would of been better if he stepped away from the lead role and focused solely on directing. I loved that line during his character Jackson Maine’s heated argument when…
