The hosts of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, are two Jurassic Park fans of many who wonder where their wonderment went with this franchise now that it has expanded to Jurassic World. Fun and intriguing ideas keep popping up, but they are repeatedly smashed down by disorganized action and poor storytelling decisions. Going full legacy sequel in bringing back the three original Jurassic Park stars should have improved a new chapter, but, alas, we’re back to another mess.

For their 68th episode, two chaotic film critics, paleontologist dads, and fossilized school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan take umbrage with the new release Jurassic World Dominion. They question then purpose and charm while trying to find and acknowledge any good parts of what is billed as being a trilogy conclusion. We think you’ll find two guys rooting for the dinosaurs instead of the people.
