Dino Sequel Darker, Scarier, and More Thrilling
3.5 out of 5 (above average)

I am baffled by the critical reception to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.  Sitting at an unbelievable 50% critics rating on Rottentomatoes.com, reviewers are claiming this entry is stale, unimaginative, and lacking the magic of its predecessors.  I completely disagree with those criticisms and believe the film actually improves on its predecessor by being darker, scarier, and providing all the expected dino-action without sacrificing the heart and character of this franchise.  Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdomshould leave moviegoers totally satisfied with action, thrills, anda scarily plausible plot in today’s world.

Atlanta, GA native, filmmaker, director, and eye-popping musical genius keeps viewers on the edge of their seats as he releases a jaw-dropping music video this passed weekend titled “This Is America”.

Everyone has grown to know Glover (AKA Childish Gambino) by his works that exude bold doses of self and the reality around him. His latest content release communicated exactly that! This is America is nothing short of what he usually does, if you’ve been a follower of his work since his “Camp” album, but this time he delivered on a visual level. Serving up a hot knuckle sandwich on a silver platter, this video was a compilation of sensitive symbolism and meaningful metaphors. This video has so much going on visually and conceptually, it’s impossible to watch it just once. Continue reading A Bold Breakdown of Donald Glover’s “This is America”
