Things to See: Jurassic Kingdom

Who doesn’t love dinosaurs? They’re huge, aggressive, have all kinds of varieties and once ruled the Earth. And being extinct, it’s not like you can see them at the local zoo. You can definitely say I’m a fan. I quoted the original film here, a review of the 2015 film here and a display of dinosaurs that helped promoted the movie here. I also photographed a dinosaur while playing golf here, not forgetting the teaser shot I put of Jurassic Kingdom here.

Violence has always been about, innit, like cowboys and indians; they didn’t have Playstations and Tupac then, and there was still violence. D’yu know what I mean? So you can’t blame it on stuff; it’ll always happen, that’s the world innit, it’s made up of different types and that. Even y’know, dinosuars. Caused a lot of trouble.
