Okay, the dinosaurs are cool. The dinosaurs are very cool. In fact, I'd even be willing to say that the dinosaurs are very, very, very, way fucking cool. The dinosaurs are about twenty minutes worth of cool in over two hours' worth of mindless predictable formula dreck and propaganda for the nuclear family. If you haven't already seen it, don't bother, unless you absolutely must see what all the fuss is about, or unless you really like dinosaurs a lot. (They are pretty cool. I especially liked the ones that spit.) Directed by -- who else? -- Stephen Spielberg, whom I loathe and despise beyond my powers of speech and whose name I curse unto the seventh generation.
