    My god, does Jordan Peele just direct the hell out of this thing. I was slack-jawed during the entire first act: such carefully managed dread and elegant direction is rarely on display in horror so clearly designed as a general-audience thrill ride. 

    My sole grievance: I’m rarely one to nitpick plot mechanics in something like this, but boy, did the final *explanation* bother me, which is really a shame when a movie’s premise is designed to string the audience along towards its big reveals.

    Loved this. Goes in some weird, dark directions you wouldn’t expect given the premise (in typical Hyams fashion), while still landing with surprising emotional heft. You know a movie’s the real deal when it’s loaded with voice-over narration and I’m not even pissed off about it.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom


    There is literally a scene in this where a raptor smirks at the camera before eating someone. Aggressively stupid and hollow.
