Jurassic World Review: Where Equality in the Workplace Means We’ll All Get Eaten (E10)

In this episode, we take a bite out of the newest film in the Jurassic Park franchise, which has garnered bigger audiences and better reviews than perhaps any of the sequels. Jurassic World is also perhaps the loudest in the series to date, but continues the familiar themes of the ramifications of capitalist man’s ignorant attempts to play god, and the forces of nature that win out in the end. Alexis takes issue, though, with some of the more regressive gender politics in the movie and is very invested in the dinosaur-on-dinosaur rumble at the end, while Chepe is worried about workplace safety and has suggestions for a change-of-pace in the inevitable fifth Jurassic film.
