    Jurassic World

    ★★★

    Whoof. There is no more telling sequence in this movie than the one where two lost kids get back to their aunt — the one who largely runs Jurassic World — just in time to see her butt-stroke a flying dinosaur off Chris Pratt, who's helplessly flailing around on his back, and about to get his face eaten.

    ★★½

    Sign me up as the apostate that just doesn't appreciate this one, that doesn't really understand why a long, rambling, sleepy movie about a disconnected, disaffected, insanely rich and privileged teenager moping around until he gets laid is so moving to people. There are better romances, better gay coming-of-age movies, better summer-fling stories, and movies where I don't get really really distracted by watching a dude gut a peach in his bed with his bare hands and then fuck it, making an immense mess for someone else to clean up. I will fight the world on this one.
