Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 99 - Jurassic World

The 500-pound Tyrannosaurus in the room (actually, that sounds like a pretty small dinosaur) this week is, of course, Jurassic World, the fourth film in the franchise that Steven Spielberg ushered into existence in 1993 and, somewhat improbably, has already broken a slew of significant box office records. Matt and I talk about that success briefly, but mainly we focus on the problems with the script, how we feel it stacks up against the other Jurassic Park films, and why we like it despite our considerable reservations.
