What Rime does better than anyone else, and how it led to me crying in a busy café

Thankfully, the tagline that comes with it is ripped straight from the tongue of Jeff Goldblum in the new poster, so not everything is terrible. Goldblum will return to the franchise, alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas-Howard from the first Jurassic World. It’s shaping up to be a dino doozy, as long
