Open Wide

There's a joke here! But.....

My sister and I joined the popcorn brigade this evening and went to see Jurassic World - Fallen Kingdom.
It was sweet if her as she doesn't really does Dino movies.
Ok, it was rubbish.....but entertaining rubbish, improved by the delectable Chris Pratt - who has a smile that could crack walnuts- with the body to match!
The movie was obviously a homage to the original and its first sequel as several scenes were literally recreated Moment to Moment and despite the narrative being allowed to gallop on without the time to  take advantage of tension and suspense , it's an entertaining old romp.
The big B lister cast Toby Jones , Raif Spall, Geraldine Chaplain ( WTF?) and James Cromwell do very little to make things better, but newcomers Daniella Pineda ( as a spunky tattooed vet) and English muppet Isabella Sermon as the obligatory small child in peril , do shine with the likeable leads ( The delicious Pratt  and  Bryce Dallas Howard )

We have seen this all before......and unfortunately dinosaurs running amok are yesterday's newspaper, but Just once I did catch myself holding my breath as the volcano explodes and the herds of dinosaurs race for safety on the edge of a cliff.....
7/10

My sister and I laughed at my previous effort at recreating the famous Chris Pratt pose to fend off three dinos
This is him

Pratt with dinos

Mr Gray with turkey , hen and Scottie

  5. It's the lighting, John. Nothing more. Also- a leather vest would help with the illusion.
    And any movie which can make you suspend disbelief for even a few seconds is worth seeing.

  7. I love the "turkey, hen and Scottie" take! As Ms Moon said, all you need is a vest :)

  8. Don't think I'll be seeing this. Really don't want to but our local screens have been arid in recent weeks when it comes to providing good 'entertainment' that I may find myself just having to go. Even the widespread allure of that Mr Pratt passes me by, damn and blast it!

  9. The important thing is that you succeeded in keeping the turkey, hen, and Scottie from going on a rampage thru the village.

  10. I love the picture of you imitating Chris Pratt! I don't expect a lot from this movie but I will see it as this series is usually a lot of fun. Plus I love Chris Pratt and Bryce Howard. Thanks for the review!

  12. Those photos are hilarious. I loved the first Jurassic Park but the sequels have never matched up.

  13. It's all in the cut of the trousers.

  14. You could easily be Chris pratt's stunt man. The resemblance is uncanny! :)

  15. Your just not as tall as him,

  16. Don't worry, if the gorgeous Mr Pratt is not available for the next movie in the series, they are sure to remember the photo of you with the turkey, hen and Scottie, and give you a call !

  18. I gave it a 7/10 too, just for entertainment value. I felt so sorry for the last dinosaur that watched the boat sail away and was then engulfed with lava and flames ... tugged at the old heartstrings it did 😭

  19. Don't turn your back on those dinos...

  20. Chris Pratt had to lose a lot of weight and tone up until he made it as A lister. There were many amusing copy cat photos at the time which was a lot of fun X

  25. Ah, but you were in so much more danger than he.

  26. You look very intimidating! (And yeah, WTF for Geraldine Chaplin? Is she that hard up for money? How could she go from Dr. Zhivago to this?! Of course, that was 50-plus years ago, but still...)

  27. All you need is Pratt's vest.

  28. Go George! Beware of the decending JG...
