Hot dino-on-dino action

‘Jurassic World’ is what you wanted

By Ryan Syrek
Hand a kid two dinosaur toys. Said kid will not use them to contemplate evolutionary biology. Said kid will smash the two of them together, simulating an epic dino-smackdown while emitting a likely annoying reptilian howl. Jurassic World is that but with a $150 million budget. Director Colin Trevorrow went from quirky indie Safety Not Guaranteed to blockbuster franchise revival faster than you can ask, “How many zeroes are on that check again?” Those hoping Trevorrow managed to retain the light, whimsical, creative tone of his former effort should remember this is a movie about dinosaurs eating people. When it comes to people eating, Jurassic World does it better than most.

Old Testament 101

It’s Bible time at Jesters

By Gary Zeidner
Based on my recent visit to Jesters Dinner Theatre in Longmont, one thing is abundantly clear: Jesters has recommitted itself to being the best darn dinner theatre it can be. When I last ventured in to this quaint, little theatre on Main Street some years ago, I came away with a very low opinion of the food and only a slightly better one of the performance. My experience this time around was decidedly more positive in every way. Because I still suffer the lingering psychological effects of my last meal at Jesters, I didn’t partake of the pre-show dinner.

Killin’ it

Tyler, the Creator is as funny as he wants to be

By Kyle Eustice
It’s hard to tell whether Tyler, the Creator is a complete ass or a total genius. However, it is safe to say he’s probably a little bit of both. Born Tyler Gregory Okonma, the 24-year-old mastermind behind hip hop collective Odd Future Wolfgang Kill Them All is on the ride of his life, and he’s never been happier.
