Duncan Gray's rating of the film Jurassic World

I still don't get the mania for Chris Pratt—his entire appeal seems to be that he's not right for the roles they keep giving him. But at its best, this is a startlingly good tribute to Spielberg that understands the appeal/subtext to the original JP, beyond "dinosaur chases man". I don't like how we're in an insidious age of "ironic" formula films, but maybe the most insidious thing of all is that I had fun.
