12 Most Disposable Films Of 2015

11. Jurassic World

Jurassic World€™s art is in its plot contrivances, and it succeeds in coming up with new ways of unleashing dinosaurs on characters with €˜cannon fodder€™ written all over them far better than either The Lost world or Jurassic Park III. All of which is entertaining enough while it lasts, but don€™t expect much resonance. It also has the good sense not to bring back characters from previous instalments (Terminator Genisys, take note) but start over with a bunch of newly-minted caricatures. There€™s Chris Pratt€™s lantern-jawed, invincible adventurer whose warnings go unheeded, plus Bryce Dallas Howard as the uptight boss who learns how to loosen up and kick ass once people start being eaten. Also around are some Cute Kids (of course), a Corporate Villain who meets a sticky end (ditto) and some post-modern blather about the first movie. One character even wears a Jurassic Park t-shirt €“ that€™s right, acknowledging that stuff exists qualifies as humour now.
