Despite getting 'meh' reviews from critics, I found this movie very enjoyable. This isn't a character study film or something, Chris Pratt is Chris Pratt, however this movie did make dinosaurs pretty fucking cool again. They even address why the dinosaurs don't match up with the actual dinosaurs and things like that; I was very satisfied with this movie. Entertainment value: 9/10 : it took a while to get started, but once it did, my heart rate never slowed down. Lots of entertainment to be found and the new beasties are pretty cool. Oh, and I was a skeptic but I totally bought the raptor trainer thing; trust me, it's handled well. Oscar bait: 7/10 : yeah, you won't find the answer to the meaning of life in this film. But, the plot holes are mostly minor (to be honest, I didn't see any) and all the actors are at the least functional (but are very cartoony in that they are 100% their character without extra motivations). There is also a scene with a woman who starts crying and it is so completely fake that it was pretty bad. In closing: See this movie. It looks great in 3D, sounds amazing and there are lots of nods to the original that make it worth seeing in and of itself.
