Jurassic World Dominion

Jurassic World Dominion ★★½

Was this movie good? Not really. But it opens up with a fake NowThis Facebook video catching people up on the world of dinosaurs, so if you still decided to take this too seriously after that, I don’t know what to tell you. At 2.5 hours this is maybe the most egregious case of “this was clearly two movies that they squished into one” I’ve seen. Literally cut almost all of the Pratt / Howard / Clone kid story and it’s a much better movie. 

That all being said, I did enjoy a fair amount of the back half of the movie, incredibly stupid but fun to watch with a some drinks. 

Finally, shout out to Chris Pratt for pulling off an all time vanity role. My guy not only raw dog grabs a Newman-killing Dino by the throat, he also runs around with a baby raptor on his back. Unsure what his agent makes, but they probably deserve more money for getting him scenes like this.
