    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    ★★★★

    Even with recency bias, I feel that Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom is arguably the best sequel to Jurassic Park. The film is never boring, it expands upon the mythology while trying something very new. It knows where to play the nostalgia beats and isn't subtle with its callbacks, but these moments only add to an already fun as hell film.

    ★★★½

    The Most B Movie that ever B'd.

    Beginning is fun.
    Middle drags a bit.
    Last 40 minutes are a blast.
    More gore than you'd expect.
    -Monster fights/destruction a A+
    VFX A-
    Everything else... C-
    The villains are cartoonish but aren't as distracting as some of the reviewers have claimed.

    Would recommend for a good time especially for monster movie fans. This is a real PG-13 film I wouldn't recommend for kids under 12 or 13.

    10 years of build-up, a couple dozen named characters and so much hype... so much potential that there was no way to live up to it... But it came close.

    Thr VFX, the editing, the score, all the technical aspects are top notch. The emotional impact takes time to process, because a lot happens in this film over a very brief period - its two and a half hour runtime flew by.

    The ending isn't happy, but it is satisfying.…
