    Jurassic World Dominion

    ★★★

    Saw this for my birthday today!! Hey, it's a big dumb popcorn flick with dinosaurs in it. And an okay way to get out of the house and kill two hours. Otherwise this is super blah and mediocre. I'm being very generous here with the rating. There's a cool moment right of "Valley of Gwangi" when Chris Pratt lassoes a dino. And call me crazy but a nice nod to "Q- The Winged Serpent" as well (?). But otherwise it's…

    It's a surreal look at a man struggling with the encroaching responsibilities of fatherhood- at least that's my take. Some definite echoes of Kafka and Lynch here.

    I was really taken with how the film itself made…
