WARNING: SPOILERS FOR "JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM"

The dinosaurs are back (along with a few humans) in "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom"... 25 years after "Jurassic Park" took moviegoers by storm, and 3 years after "Jurassic World" earned more than a BILLION dollars at the box office.

In this episode of the podcast, Andy Farnsworth, Ryan Meeks and "1-Minute Critic" and Geektyrant.com writer Kristian Odland discuss (with spoilers) the new movie, which they all thought fell short of expectations.  They discuss what they liked, many of their frustrations, thoughts on some of the plot twists and story directions and consider the question: If dinosaurs are your main characters, just how many interesting stories can you actually tell?

This episode also available as video on iTunes & Apple Podcasts.  Please check it out and subscribe, and feel free to share with others who also love this stuff as much as we do!

"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, James Cromwell, Toby Jones and Jeff Goldblum.  It was directed by J.A. Bayona.

Mr. Incredible and his super-family (Elastigirl, Violet, Dash & Jack-Jack, along with super-friend Frozone) are back--after a 14-year wait by fans--in "The Incredibles 2" from Disney/Pixar and writer/director Brad Bird, which picks up immediately after the end of 2004's "The Incredibles."

In this episode of the podcast, Andy Farnsworth and Ryan Meeks--who both liked the movie a lot--are talking SPOILERS, including what they liked best (hint: one of them involves Jack-Jack and a "burglar"), what they thought of the movie's villain The Screenslaver, how it compares as a superhero film to "Avengers: Infinity War" and where the story can go from here.

Moviegoers can now return to the world of high-stakes heists in "Ocean's 8," which tells the story of Debbie Ocean (played by Sandra Bullock and who is the sister of George Clooney's character Danny Ocean) and her all-female crew as they attempt to heist a $150M necklace at the Met Gala in NYC.

In this episode of the podcast, Andy Farnsworth and Ryan Meeks are joined by Geektyrant.com writer Kristian Odland (who is also the "1-Minute Critic" on YouTube) to give their SPOILER-FILLED thoughts of the new movie, which also stars Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, and Awkwafina.

Among the things they discuss: Does being a part of the "Ocean's 11" universe help the movie or hurt it?  Would it be a good heist movie without the ties to the previous films?  And does it rank anywhere among their favorite heist-movies of the past?
