Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Review

By any reasonable standard, the Jurassic Park franchise should be long extinct by now. After the mixed reactions to Jurassic Park III, the proverbial asteroid appeared to have hit the series.

Pacific Rim: Uprising Review

The long-delayed sequel to 2013’s metal-versus-monster bombshell may bear the recently emboldened Del Toro name, but this is no Shape of Water, folks.
