Let’s make this clear.
I absolutely suck at writing reviews.
Especially of films.
For a start, any decent review mentions actors, directors, prouducers. Visual effect people. All that stuff.
I do not go into a film knowing any of that aforementioned ‘stuff’.
In fact, when I’m watching a film with my husband and he starts with the “oh I’ve seen him before, he played blah blah in blah blah and IMDB blah” I totally zone out. Evidently.
So my reviews will always be very much lacking on the ‘Mr Director showed his background in horror movies with his use of suspense’ and ‘Mrs Actor, famous for her role in That Film’ front.
I go by my gut. Liking things. Not liking things. The odd bit of outrage.
So what about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom?
Here’s a hint: I started writing this blog post before I even left the cinema, when I still found myself vaguely teary about the fate of a CGI Brachiosaurus.
