    I think this guy nails it, especially the issues with Claire and her assistant. Warning, spoilers.

    I haven't watched the video yet, but I actually enjoyed Jurassic World a bit more than the original movie. I had issues with Jurassic Park all the way back to its theatrical release. The movie defanged the book while Spielberg was in his kid friendly mode (Hook). Sure there were some good set pieces but I never got the sense of being in an actual dinosaur amusement mark.

    Jurassic World was essentially a remake of the original with everything that was missing. Sure there were some silly "only in a movie" moments but it was all in fun. Despite the glossy production there is a bit of subversive commentary just beneath the surface.

    For OLED owners with 3D Jurassic World looks amazing too.
