Welcome to Jurassic World

Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the long-dormant Jurassic franchise and the product of a director who's made exactly one other feature film in his short career, just made $500 million worldwide in one weekend. Yes, you read that right. What was it about Jurassic World that drew in so many moviegoers? And, more importantly, is it actually any good?

We examine the pros and cons of Colin Trevorrow's big ol' blockbuster, along with wondering if it's wise to reference the superior original over and over in a reboot.
