    I first saw David Byrne’s TRUE STORIES on VHS when I was 13 and liked it. Every time I’ve seen it I’ve liked it more. Now I think it might be a masterpiece.

    If you like uninvolving, poorly made movies about about a bunch of bland jerks at an amusement park, this is the movie for you. I'm a fan of the 1993 movie and will forgive a lot in order to see some suspenseful, scary dinosaur action. Sadly, there's none of that here. I was never thrilled or even particularly engaged. It replaces the science and wonder of Spielberg's movie with thudding ironic commentary and cynicism. When a movie explains to you that you're dumb for coming to see it in the first place, things aren't going to work out.

    Dismal and incompetent. I have no excuse for why I watched this. I was not a fan of Man of Steel but there’s no question to was a well produced movie. This thing was a far cry from that. It’s a sloppy Frankensteined piece of garbage...but nothing here suggests any other cut would be better.
