‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Draws Mixed First Reactions, From ‘Roaring Fun’ to ‘Overindulgent and Pointless’
[variety.com]

Universal has positioned “Dominion” as a finale for the franchise, organizing a round-up of “Jurassic” stars old and new. The film reunites Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, who all starred in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return after starring in 2015’s “Jurassic World” and 2018’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” while series newcomers DeWanda Wise and Mamoudou Athie also join the cast of the new entry.

“Dominion” picks up after the events of “Fallen Kingdom,” with dinosaurs now roaming the Earth and forcing the human race to closely guard their position as the apex predators of the planet. “Jurassic World” director Colin Trevorrow returns to helm the series finale.

This one will be worth going to see, if not just to see old friends.

EDIT: BTW, just in case no one had done the math yet: The original Jurassic Park was released 29 years ago.



It is what it is.

The Fifth Element absolutely belongs in any lineup of classic movies. JP: TLW... let's just say "not so much."

I've never seen any Jurassic Park movies. What do the characters do, make the exact same stupid mistake movie after movie?

LOL!

I saw the first one and I can't remember why as monster movies aren't very interesting to me, not even in a so-bad-it's-good way.

Jeff Goldblum really should have a line:

You know, I really thought we were going to get it right, this time.

If I were going to see this movie, and I'm not, it would only be to see Goldblum.

I've always been a fan.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Wayne Knight did a memorable job in the first one.

Samuel L. Jackson weren't no slouch, either.

Breakthrough CGI and Sound, along with T2.
