The season of summer isn’t officially over yet but the exciting blockbuster season has unfortunately passed. And wasn’t this quite the summer? We had two Marvel movies, a Star Wars film, another terrifying Jurassic flick, the return of a Pixar classic, and a thrilling Mission: Impossible movie. This was quite the busy blockbuster season and so today I’m going to share with you my ranking of these films from worst to best. Enjoy!
6. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
When I saw Jurassic Park for the first time five years ago I didn’t realize how incredible it was going to be. Since then I’ve become a Jurassic fan. I’ve seen every film, I’ve watched Jurassic Park a number of times, I’ve grown to enjoy Jurassic World at home, and I actually like Jurassic Park: The Lost World.
When it was announced that Jurassic World would be getting a sequel I couldn’t wait to see what it would be about. The first film in this new trilogy seemed pretty enjoyable so there was no way the sequel could be that bad. Wrong!
I walked away from that film utterly disappointed for a number of reasons.
- Every scene in the movie was something I had seen in a commercial or trailer so I knew what was going to happen.
- The story wasn’t enticing at all. Seeing Chris Pratt and Bryce-Dallas Howard trapped in a mansion overrun with dinosaurs is not as exciting as it sounds.
- There weren’t any stakes. I’m still waiting to see a Jurassic film that has some serious stakes connected to it. And even with the dinosaurs ( MAJOR SPOILER ALERT AHEAD!) getting released onto the North American continent at the end the movie it still didn’t feel dire in the slightest.
Who knows. Maybe the final film in the trilogy will be the best Jurassic movie ever made but it is clearly my least favorite blockbuster this year.
