Today I saw Skyscraper and it's alright. The movie doesn't spend as much time in a skyscraper as Die Hard does and why would it? Few action movies can stand up to the seminal Die Hard.

Saw The Equalizer 2 today and how underwhelming. It breaks the cardinal rule of making action movie sequels by taking a less equals more approach over a more equals more approach.

Jurassic World 2 Fallen Kingdom

Stupid/mindless but fun if you can turn your brain off. Plot and character development = nonexistent, pretty much nonstop over-the-top action. If you're after a good Jurassic Park movie then skip it, if you want an entertaining-enough dinosaur-themed monster flick it does the job.

The last Jurassic Park/World movie I've seen was 2, so I don't know how much this reflects the new typical tone.

It's basically the Jurassic Park equivalent of Pacific Rim - if you just accept it for what it is it's pretty entertaining.

JMO.

I use that same viewpoint for the TF movies.

I quite like JP 1 and 3. They both seem to have the Dinosaurs and wonder thing going on pretty well, as well as a good amount of dino danger.

Jurrassic World, I kind of enjoyed, but disliked all the characters. Especially the kids and love interest. Their relationship just felt stupid. Of course she doesn't care about the kids, she never has, why should she suddenly start with them coming to her job?
