I can’t quite believe it myself.  There I was, returning to the cinema to see Jurassic World for a second time.  I hardly ever do that, see a new film more than once in the theater.

This time, though, the explanation is relatively straight-forward.  When Felix and I saw Jurassic World back in July, my daughter Clara was away at camp.  What I underestimated was how disappointed she would be NOT to have seen the film on the big screen.  As many films as I see with my kids, both at home and in the theater, it truly is the odd one that one of the two of them gets a particular yen to see, something that they cling to and harp on, forcing my hand.

Luckily for us all, I had pretty well enjoyed Jurassic World the first time through.  So, I willingly took Clara and one of her friends to see it on their last weekend before the start of the school year.

And you know what?  They loved it.

I think I said it in my last write-up: “Chris Pratt & dinosaurs”.  What’s not to like?  Oh yeah, those sexist threads.  We discussed them.  But in the end a thrill ride is a thrill ride, and Jurassic World is the theme park as movie, and more than anything, it’s entertaining.  Highest of ratings from the 10 and 11 year old who accompanied me.
