Somebody took a couple of his kids to see a dinosaur movie this week. Spoiler alert: the movie was Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and the kids were Sons, 14 and 9.
Thoughts about the film after said viewing were mixed; I said to the kids as we walked out into the harsh light of afternoon, “Well, that was full of dinosaurs and nonsense.” They both readily agreed. But what 14 assumed was a negative critique, 9 considered a positive review.
And here we have a concrete illustration of why and how critics and sites like Rotten Tomatoes so often disagree.
Luckily the socks are obviously an easy critical and commercial win.
