farrago fə-ˈrä-(ˌ)gō , -ˈrā- noun
: a motley assortment of things
The word farrago has appeared in seven articles on NYTimes.com in the past year, including on June 20 in the movie review “‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Brings the Gang Back. Sigh” by A.O. Scott:
…The reawakening of the slumbering franchise in 2015 gave birth to “Jurassic World,” one of the highest-grossing terrible movies of all time, a lumbering walk in the rebooted park that squandered the charisma of the big lizards and the charm of the human cast in a witless farrago of blockbuster self-importance. “Fallen Kingdom,” directed by J. A. Bayona, is in most respects a dumber, less ambitious movie than its immediate predecessor, and also, for just that reason, a little bit more fun. Some of its high jinks have a hokey, silly, old-fashioned mad-scientist feeling to them, especially when the dinosaurs are chasing people or vice versa. Which is reasonably often.
