Dinosaurs in the suburbs...oh no!

How many times are we going to go back to the formulaic constructed "horror" of a T-Rex yelling at you as you need to run faster. It appears that each film seems to get louder and louder, but perhaps that's the theatre and not the sound engineer. The twist of course is that we now have to witness another sequel...this time dinosaurs in the outer suburbs...oh the humanity! This film, although a cohesive ride...felt looooong...by the time we get to the human cloning part I kinda didn't care anymore. Nice to see Bryce Dallas Howard out of those ridiculous heels.
