This was great.

Plenty of little nods to the original film, but not reliant on nostalgia to surprise or entertain with some really good turns from the cast and some genuine shocks en route to a suitably thrilling ending act.

Psycho, I'm guessing you didn't enjoy it as much as I did?

It was fun, but it rode the nostalgia factor hard, especially at the end.

Spoiler:
 

It was cool that they acknowledged in the film that a lot of the dinosaurs didn't look how the real species would have looked. But that's mainly because they're following the canon of a film that was made when people did think they looked like that. Pretty much everything with dinosaurs in it has. Jurassic Park based it's dinosaurs on the scientific knowledge of the time, but since then everyone just bases their dinosaurs on Jurassic Park.

The younger kids behind me in the cinema were pointing out and naming the dinosaurs every time a new one appeared, and it's a bit weird that they could be mostly wrong. Chris Pratt's character at one point says Indominus isn't a dinosaur, but neither are his raptors. Or at least their not velociraptors, I forget the details. I just found it a bit weird that in the film they have our current real-world knowledge of dinosaurs, but they forget it at will.

Like the young kid in the movie was talking about all the dinosaur species. He was a kid that was clearly into dinosaurs. But he never mentioned how they should look different or anything.

I dunno, just a little thing that bugged me.

I'm glad that kids still think dinosaurs are cool.

I can't believe you didn't just throw the kids popcorn on the floor and insist he go home and read about dinosaurs properly because no one like a guy who's into something and yet can't get his facts straight.

I mean kids making it seem like country folk don't know their shit.

I mean you're a direct descendant of the people who built Stone Henge for the love of your Sun God.

I can't believe Joss Whedon called the film sexist but missed the racism.

This was addressed in the film though not many people will have picked up on it.

When Claire is talking to Owen about Indominus Rex, she says it needs to have, and I'm paraphrasing slightly here, "a memorable and scary name; not every kid can say Deinonychus." The joke being that the raptors in the films are actually Deinonychus, rather than velociraptor, which were much smaller. If you didn't know that though, the joke will have gone right over your head.

I've seen the film twice now, and enjoyed it hugely on both occasions.

She doesn't say that, she says Archaeornithomimus.
