    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★½

    Honestly would’ve been fine if they just did the park with the herbivores. I think they should give it another shot!

Five months later, I ran into Rian on the street in my neighborhood and he recognized me because we follow each other on Twitter. (Feel free to roll your eyes and dismiss this whole thing as a pointless humblebrag, but it’s relevant.) We made plans to grab lunch a…
