    Jurassic World Dominion

    ★★★½

    The third instalment of the new trilogy seems to gather a lot of criticism. I don't really see why. I think it's precisely what you would expect having seen the previous five movies.

    short review, more in-depth one coming soon...

    There is something about this movie (greater than it being Star Wars) that connects deeply with me. Maybe it's about the next generation taking over while the former generation is fading and mostly getting out of the way while trying to assure a transition of some sort. Maybe it's the idea of aging characters you love doing what they can do best for one last time, while new characters are trying to find…
