Monday Movie Review

Jurassic World
Like the rest of the world, we went and saw Jurassic World opening weekend. I absolutely love the first movie, the sequels not so much, so while I had high hopes for this I also knew how it could play out.

Starting though, with the theme park itself, it looked amazing!!! The dino petting zoo and the baby triceratops ride... I immediately asked the boy if he'd let Elley ride one. Then the kayak ride down the river with grazing stegosauruses, I would definitely go on that ride.

As for the movie itself, it was definitely enjoyable, although maybe not as good as the original. I did love all the throwbacks to the first, and while I know I didn't catch them all had fun trying.

Knowing how much money this has already made you know they will be making a sequel. I just hope it's far more like Jurassic World instead of The Lost World.


  1. The throwbacks were SO great. I really thought they did well - I was afraid the kids being lost in the mix of the insanity would become the main plot but was happy with it in the end!

  2. Since I'm not a huge fan of dinosaurs (nor was I a fan of Jurassic Park when I had to see it in 3D at an IMAX theatre, front row centre -- awesome), I don't think I'll be seeing this one. However, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
