I’m a huge monster movie guy (as our occasional Monster Weeks demonstrate). It’s perhaps debatable whether Jurassic Park and its kin are truly creature features, but I love them regardless.
Fallen Kingdom, the follow up to Jurassic World, looks suitably bonkers. Dinosaurs? Check. Volcanic eruptions? Check. Pretentious debates over the value of traditional vs. recreated life? Che–oh, look, dinosaurs!
I’m sure this movie isn’t going to be good. The story will be a mess, the science will be impossible. But I’m also sure it’s going to be the sort of gonzo fun that makes for an excellent monster movie.
