Some of the calorie counts for this day may be (possibly heavily) on the side of being too many by mistake. I ate things that were impossible to track at the time so I had to do my best and I tend to err on the side of more.

Tonight we went to Cinébistro on a very special date night! 🥰 Finally it was time to see Jurassic World: Dominion. After literally not shutting up about it for months on end, the big night finally came! I got treated to a really wonderful meal, the seating was super comfortable, the screen was huge… and the movie was all I had hoped for and more!
I brought my T. rex, Frijol, with me, and had my usual Jurassic getup (shirt and backpack, and a triceratops baby necklace):
He was excited, too! 🦖👑
I will say that as far as this film was concerned, my expectations were modest, and my desires simple: I wanted awesome dinosaurs to fill the screen and alternatively rampage things, be awe-inspiring, be cute, be conniving, and/or be loud, or a combination of all of these things.
I wanted to see the old beloved cast (hello Jeff Goldblum, boy did you age well 🤤👌) interact with the new cast, which really grew on me over the years. I wanted to see Blue’s baby, Beta, be adorable. I wanted to stifle a scream each time I recognized a favorite dino. I wanted a movie I’ll want to rewatch. Suffice to say, I got all of that!
The following picture was, of course, taken before the movie started and before we got our food –this was the pre-show and I put my phone away when the trailers started.
NOTE: After the photo, there will be a cut (unless you’re reading this in email form, I think). After the cut will be my thoughts on the movie, which WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS. You have been warned!
