Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Threequels are easy to get right.

OUT are the huge expectations of evoking the brilliance of the original, while IN are low-expectations of mindless trash.

Best of all, no-one ever actually watches them.

As a result, there's a greater sense of freedom to just get on with it, and Jurassic Park III exemplifies this.

Sam Neill is available from the first film, while his girlfriend appears to be less so. Jeff Goldblum from both earlier instalments had to drop-out, but it really doesn't matter. Richard Attenborough? Well, he didn't really seem necessary in the second one.

The plot is pretty much the same fare, delivering well on our established expectations of early out-of-sight dinosaurs, later full-frontal dinosaurs, and a deadly falling vehicle somewhere in-between.

There are also some nice lines, and a very funny moment with Barney. Oh yes, it's definitely a Jurassic Park flick.

All in all, I think this is my favourite movie of the three.

See how easy that was?
