    This movie is a mess for sure but I sill like it. I like theme parks, I like dinosaurs. I like dinosaur theme parks. 

    All your criticisms are valid. But it’s still better than Jurassic Park 3 (apologies to Mr. Johnson. He kept it from being worse). 

    It’s probably not possible to make a compelling JP sequel, so at least this one compensates by trying to do several things at once and not really getting any of them right.

    An excellent adventure fable. The least complex Laika film to date, but no less rewarding. Gorgeous animation and a well-crafted story. It feels huge while being intimate.

    I love how different this is from the first one. New problems, new characters, but true to
    what came before in a great way. 

    The themes about dads, screens, and cultural concerns are totally obvious, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing for a superhero film. 

    Holly Hunter continues to be the best.
