I am getting to the point where I am coffee-ed out and thank goodness that it's pay day tomorrow because the list of holiday 'things to do' has left me financially destitute, but at least I can't say that I am bored. Far from it actually, never a dull moment to tell the truth. I could certainly use another two weeks off that's for sure, but I know that I always start to feel like this when there are only a few days of break left and the reality of another term stretches out before me.
My darling son took me out for a mother-son day today, his shout. We went and had morning tea together and then he took me to the movies, and even insisted on paying for popcorn and drinks, what a charmer. We decided to see something that would appeal to both of our appetites, something with lots of action, a simple story line and a chance to tune out reality for a while.

Running Time: 124 mins
This is the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park series, and clearly people aren't tiring of movies about giant prehistoric beasts yet, because so far Jurassic World is the second highest grossing film of 2015 and the 5th highest grossing movie of all time.
Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Jurassic World takes place on the same fictional island of Isla Nublar, where a fully functional dinosaur theme park is operating, built on the remains of the old and unsuccessful first theme park.
Everything is going along so well at the park, an Indiana Jones wannabe named Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) has even managed to train a herd of Velociraptors and the park's operations manager Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) has agreed to have her nephews visit the park and has given them full access to all areas. But it wouldn't be Jurassic World if things didn't take a turn for the worst, which it does, when a new and genetically modified dinosaur called Indominus Rex breaks loose and goes on a killing spree across the park.
This is practically the same story line as the first installment, with much better effects and even bigger dinosaurs - but at the end of the day it's just more of the same. It is the best of it's kind for it's gob-smacking effects, reputable casting and the fact that it is not demanding to be taken seriously. I have to be honest, if they really opened a Jurassic World, I would be the first one saying take my money, that theme park was amazing!
FINAL SAY: She's killing for sport.
