#165 – Why are the Jurassic Park Sequels So Bad?
Why are the Jurassic Park / World Sequels awful? Karri and Henrik tackle this question, the entire franchise, and discuss the latest entry, Jurassic World: Dominion. The other talking points include Spielberg and his family plots, tactile dimensions, the feeling of first time awe, self-awareness of The Lost World, character build issues and legacy characters, whether Jurassic movies are franchise compatible or not, Dominion’s identity, and other topics.
