Once again, Eric nails it!!! Great review, friend, your weakness for redheads notwithstanding. Also, if you want to know the difference between a pteranadon and a pterodactyl, watch Dinosaur Train. Duh. Everything I learned about dinosaurs, I learned from Tiny, Shiny and Don. And Buddy. My review of "Jurassic World" (2015), with Bryce Dallas HowAreYaDarling.
Police brutality. It seems Americans are less bothered by it than the Britons, whose press does not fail to report what ours does.

(Everyone else is quoting Shakespeare today; I just figured I’d go in the other direction.)
