I mean, that's a scene straight from a Brett Ratner but worse film.

If we keep this dialogue going, I'll throw since more at you.

There's more good than bad in #2 overall. I just ignore the gymnastics bit, lol.

The scene with Moore on the glass is one of Spielberg's most suspenseful sequences... maybe ever. Hitchcock would've been proud.

if youre going to go by that timeline you have to account for time the island sat abandoned. When the new owners picked up the island and got it fixed up how long before they continued the science. Newman never made it off the island with the Dino DNA.

They got the park open, but in the first movie the shit fucked up on a dry run of the park.

Add to that in number two they had a T. Rex running around LA fucking shit up.


After all that they're still allowed to have this park open with civilians running around. Add to that they enhanced the dinosaurs. That is just stupid on every level possible.

In response to Reply # 11


          

Whereas the two sequels were basically just horror flicks, only the go light on the blood to make it a "thrill ride for the whole family" or whatever.

Which is why I hated the second and third movie. If they had just second screw it and made the sequels hard R monster movies, I might have enjoyed them more. As is, the movies just repeat everything that the first movie already said well enough: "If you eff with Mother Nature, that's your ass."

From the looks of it, this new one says the same thing, only this time with a much bigger body count.

Shorty that gets snatched by the Pteranodon, in this trailer you can clearly see her submerged in the Mosasaur tank after being dropped in. How do you think she dies if she dies?

I've been thinking that she was snatched by the mosasaur ALONG WITH the pteranodon.

Even in that trailer you can kind of see part of her shirt as the dinosaur's jaws open and shut.

This was actually the most awkward part of the movie for me.

32. "it's the best jurassic park sequel *mild spoilers*"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

granted, that's a low bar. i hated the lost world's guts and i know most people hated JP3 (i liked it, but i can see the issues). this one is better, but the fact that they're keeping it away from critics should warn you to adjust your expectations accordingly.

let's get the bad stuff out of the way first. this does not feel like an attempt to revive the JP franchise. the characters are mostly one note and forgettable, their backgrounds and stories are pretty cliche, it feels like the kids exist completely out of an obligation to have some kids in every JP movie (stop), and it's hard to imagine any of them showing up in a future JP movie. that's a mistake to me. somewhere along the way, they got the idea that the JP movies are horror films, where it doesn't matter who the victims (or in this case, the humans) are. people just want to see jason slash up some sexy teens, so as long as he's there, you're giving the people what they want. i wish instead they would start introducing some human characters that we actually care about, some storylines we can follow through multiple movies.

i also wish some of these characters actually cared about dinosaurs. it just feels like the awe is gone from these movies, and not because we've seen all the CGI before, but because none of the characters genuinely care about dinosaurs. they're just doing their jobs, running this advanced zoo. where are the dinosaur experts? where are the scientists? part of what's great about the books (and the first JP) is that there is genuine awe about dinosaurs, people who have spent their lives studying bones and are now looking their life's work and all their childhood dreams in the eye. the scene with the raptor eggs hatching, the scene with the sick trike, the scene with the brachiosaur eating in the tree. those quiet moments where we get to look and marvel at holy crap that's a dinosaur, instead of just the carnage.

there was ample opportunity to do that here, but it ends up being maybe the biggest missed opportunity. we don't actually get to spend much time exploring the first fully functional dinosaur park put on screen. there's some fun stuff shown briefly, but you'll definitely want more. you'll want to stop the movie and climb into the screen and walk around in it, but you can't and you'll be mad about it.

in the way of negatives, i also have to mention that the main human villain has one of the absolute dumbest motivations of any character ever put on film. the fact that it passed through multiple writers without anybody stopping and saying, "can we do better than this?" is staggering. like, seriously, guys, can anybody think of a slightly less stupid idea than this, one that won't make the audience want to punch everyone involved in the face?

all right, now the good. and, relax, 'cause there's lots of it. irrfan khan is one of my favorite actors, and he's just having fun out there. nick from new girl scores some solid points too. i also like that chris pratt's character is actually smart, not just someone we're told is smart. he makes decisions that make you want to root for him, which is far and away the most important trait for any lead character in an action flick.

i know people are worried about the trained raptors. don't be. they (to my surprise) do it right, and it's actually one of the strengths of the movie. these aren't lapdogs. they're wild animals that, yes, take some instruction, but they're still always just right on the edge of ripping your limbs off. they do it so right. no one knows why the protocol in the raptor pen is for someone to risk their life to save a loose pig that's gonna be raptor food anyway (you've seen this scene in the trailers), but it ends up being a solid intro to the tenuous dynamic between pratt and his "soldiers."

the new lab-designed dino is pretty cool too, basically a souped up t. rex with some dope secrets. we never really understand dr. wu's motivation for keeping those secrets under wraps, but he probably should've told someone what this massive, extremely violent, "could kill us all and ruin our multibillion dollar park" dinosaur can do.

and, lastly, the finale might be the best pure action sequence of the franchise. it works beautifully on its own and also has a couple fun callbacks to the first film. if you're here for the carnage and the creative kills, you'll get it and you'll like it. that alone makes this worth the price of admission.

so, look, JW never reaches the heights of spielbergian horror of the original and never really attempts any of crichton's science. we get almost no discussion about the philosophical elements that make the books and the first film great-- what happens when the pace of innovation exceeds our understanding of what we're innovating. we also don't get any characters we care about. this isn't a reboot as much as a well-executed remake, and the lack of ambition to make something more than another dinos gone wild movie is kind of unfortunate.

but well-executed it is. the action is top-notch, the dinos are in top horror villain form, and it is-- in several places-- genuinely fun as hell. you will be entertained, even if we do get almost none of the quiet moments where we can sit back and wonder and imagine a time when dinosaurs ruled the earth.

I really do wish we could've explored the actual park. It looked wonderfully fun.


Also, I want a raptor squad. I felt vicariously badass just watching it.

‘Jurassic World’ Ticket Sales Outpacing All 2014 Summer Blockbusters

“Jurassic World” will bare some impressive teeth at the box office this weekend.

The action-thriller is expected to debut to $115 million. That would rank as the third biggest bow of the year behind “Furious 7″ and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Ticket sales for the picture are robust, according to Fandango and MovieTickets.com.

Fandango reports that the latest chapter in the “Jurassic Park” franchise is outselling all major 2014 summer blockbusters — a group that includes “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” — at the same point in those films’ sales cycles. The picture accounts for over 90% of all weekend ticket sales.

MovieTickets.com is also seeing strong interest, with “Jurassic World” topping ticket sales and accounting for 52% of all tickets sold over the past 24 hours.

The Universal Pictures release stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard and was directed by Colin Trevorrow, who previously oversaw the Sundance favorite “Safety Not Guaranteed.”

The film is on track to be the highest-grossing debut in the dinosaur franchise’s history, topping “The Lost World’s” $72 million premiere. It’s also good news for a domestic box office that has struggled of late — ticket sales have lagged behind last year’s numbers for three consecutive weeks. Analysts see “Jurassic World” as a chance to reverse that trend.

i'm not surprised. i think it has a broader audience than some of the other big movies because well...it's dinosaurs.

36. "A fun ride (in spite of terrible storytelling)"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Jurassic Park is a lot of fun even though pretty much everything not involving dinosaurs should probably have been cut out and it should have been a straight action movie. It's a little reminiscent to Rise of the Planet of the Apes in that the humans just bring the film down.

The film has three storylines and botches them all.
1. The love story is a complete waste but at least works as a set-up for a great comedic moment.

2. The divorce/brothers storyline is slammed in so it sticks out like a sore thumb.

3. The people I went to the movie with were confused by the corporate angle which seems like it was mostly put in there to set up a potential sequel and to create a human villain where one wasn't really needed.

On the bright side, they seemed to have understood how bad these storylines were in edit and cut them down to the bare minimum. Although honestly, the film should have learned the lesson from Rise vs. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, lost most of the human stories even more and let us spend more time with the Andominus Rex and watching it learn about life outside of containment (and see the other dinosaurs reacting to a new member of the ecosystem.)

But still, DINOSAURS! The film is a lot of fun, does a good job with fan service, and I thought Jake Johnson supplied the perfect amount of comic relief. The geography of the Island wasn't handled very well and I was a bit disappointed that this was Blunt Force Cinema - we only got one scene of someone being clever to avoid dinosaurs; the rest was all humans inexplicably running faster than dinosaurs. But this is a silly popcorn movie so those things were just passing thoughts while I enjoyed watching the action.

Head in with low expectations and you'll be very entertained.

Oh, and the most impressive thing in the movie is Bryce Dallas Howard's heels. Those things must have been made out of Valerian steel or something.

with too many similar story beats as the first movie.

That said, it's a really fun popcorn flick. Dinosaurs and dinosaur action is what you watch this movie for and you get a ton of that. I'd recommend it if you're not trying to scrutinize every little detail. Not a fan of 3D in general, but it was actually very good here, with some really fun sweeping shots that leverage it well.

Nothing more and nothing less.

It's got some issues with pacing and too many characters/storylines. The kids kinda felt like they didn't need to be there and the focus could've been on Bryce and Pratt for the whole time. Whole lotta cool dinosaur shit though.

Mostly because the characters are *so* undeveloped. Jurassic Park had, like, ten fully developed characters. Lost World carried over one of those great characters and added a few more fully developed characters (no one in this film comes close to Julianne Moore... or Pete Postlethwaite... or even Vince Vaughn). This movie is insanely indifferent to character, with the exception of Jake Johnson, who subsequently waltzes away with the film. Guys who come across well in the film, like Pratt and Khan, do so exclusively on their own natural charisma-- the script does them no favors. It replaces any amount of necessary character building with its endless meta commentary on blockbuster filmmaking. Which makes the film funny and enjoyable on the whole... but so damn disposable. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy: a film about the vain attempt to artificially create something bigger that vainly attempts to artificially create thrills.

Trevorrow and his cinematographer don't remotely have the eye of Spielberg, Cundey, and Kaminski for iconography... not by a longshot. So nothing feels as gripping as anything from the first film, or the RV scene or the raptor attack from the second film. Maybe it's not the lack of developed characters that matters, now that I think about it-- maybe it's just the technical prowess of those at the helm. These guys are good... but their original predecessor set a ridiculously high bar.

They do a good job with the chaos in the last half hour, though. That really saves the film. The flying dinosaur stuff and the big final battle-- if you end a film well, no one will ultimately care about anything else (even though the final moment of this film is asshole-clenchingly embarrassing). So I sit here, knowing I enjoyed the film on the whole, mostly due to the last half hour, but somewhat disappointed that, despite playing off of our nostalgia for the first and lifting entire beats of the original film, it still feels so far from the original that we all loved. Is the movie right? Have we really all lost the ability to be blown away by seeing big monsters?

I'm sure I'll change my feelings on this movie another time or two after I inevitably see it on cable.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

There were a lot of cringe-worthy moments in the film that took me totally out of the film.

-The "we're supposed to have a family weekend!" talk and then cry.
-The divorce conversation
-The cliched tough guy living in a shack romancing the straight-laced woman
-The "kiss"
-The whole TRex sequence at the end
-Awful dialogue

Chris Pratt was decent with what he had to work with but Bryce Howard was over the top in my opinion.
She's a great actress, so I don't know if this was the direction given to her.
This is usually the problem with summer blockbusters it seems.

I enjoyed the dinos in general (the baby dino rides were cool)
but I felt like you could really see the difference in the quality of filmmaking between Speilberg's Jurassic and this one.
There were a few scenes that tried to make callbacks to the original and they just fell flat.

story and characters were blah like most people said. But the dinosaur scenes were great. Some of the call backs from the first movie were stupid. But lots of people got fucked up by dinosaurs. That is all I really wanted to see.

47. "Waiting to see that first dinosaur."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Like a junkie, I've been kinda chasing the high I felt when I saw that brontosaurus in Jurassic Park. I'll never forget how Spielberg revealed it. So in World, I was kinda watching and waiting to see how they'd showcase the first dinosaur on screen. We got a glimpse of the Hybrid at first...eh. Then later we went to the raptors. And the reveal was...eh. Again, as a junkie, you're always chasing that high and I should have been prepared. I won't ever experience that awe from Jurassic Park again.

Overall I had fun. The 3D IMAX (a true IMAX screen) was great. I wasn't seated in the middle, but the 3D made so there really wasn't a bad seat in the theater. Whatever dinosaur that was in the water made the film for me. I had seen that scene before where it comes from the water in the trailer tons of times, but seeing it in 3D was even better. And when it took down that pterodactyl and the assistant? Man...great stuff.

shit damn near DOUBLED original estimates out the blue.

how is this shit this big but nobody is really talking about it on social media or in life? theres usually a shitload of convo around avengers, fast & furious, etc. this shit opened up better than both those flicks and hasnt generated anywhere near the amount of discussion. seems kinda weird.


http://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?ref=rss&id=4068

'Jurassic World' Indomitable, Rex Box Office

Doubling the original weekend estimate proffered by Universal Jurassic World is now coming in at a reported $204.6M ($204,596,380) for its opening weekend, the 2nd biggest of all time, taking an Express Pass by this May's Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191.2M) and almost catching Marvel's The Avengers ($207.4).

World, which nicely also doubled as a confirmation that Chris Pratt is an A-list lead, pulled in a healthy $47.8K per theater in 4,274 venues. That number just makes it the best top weekend theater average over The Avengers' $47.7K average.

Not only is Jurassic World the biggest opening weekend that Universal has ever had (the next closest film is Furious 7 with $147.1M) it's the biggest that co-financier Legendary has ever had, which includes the Dark Knight films.

Jurassic World outperformed even the most optimistic of forecasts for the last four days, surprising nearly everyone. Its $82.8M Friday was the third best Friday opening on record, with only Age of Ultron ($84.4M) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 ($91M) still ahead of it.

----------------------------

http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/box-office-jurassic-world-sets-biggest-worldwide-debut-ever-with-511-million-opening-weekend-20150614


While critics and fanboys were mixed on "Jurassic World," that didn't stop audiences for one moment. Colin Trevorrow's dinosaur blockbuster took a huge bite out of the box office with $204.6 million domestic, making it the second biggest Friday to Sunday opening in history, sandwiched between "The Avengers" and "Avengers: Age Of Ultron." And those numbers helped make the worldwide haul of $511 million the biggest debut of all time, passing the previous record of $494 million by "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part II." And did ticketbuyers like it? You bet they did. They gave the movie a solid A Cinemascore, which bodes very well for "Jurassic World" having some strong legs for the rest of the summer.

It doesn't need to be said, but the numbers are simply huge any way you look it. Domestically, "Jurassic World" beat the opening weekends of all three previous movies in the franchise combined. Nearly half of the domestic total came from 3D screenings, with another 10% from IMAX and frankly, rival studios were right to stay very, very far away from the movie, which Universal opened to no competition from the other majors. The demographics are interesting too. 61% of ticket buyers were over 25 years old, with a nearly even split between men and women. And this marks another big blockbuster success for Chris Pratt, though it still puts him in an unknown position. Is he a certified new superstar, or just lucky enough to lead movies that are part of an already established brand? And maybe it's time for director Colin Trevorrow to be given a hand for taking a monumental leap from indie movie to tentpole picture, and executing it with skill to spare (I'd argue "Jurassic World" is better directed than 'Ultron' by a mile) and delivering a hugely crowd-pleasing experience.

Compare the demographics on this to those of Avengers 2 or Furious 7. Those skew far younger. Hence the relative lack of social media explosion about it.

over half of active twitter users are over the age of 35.

regardless of the demographics,
this is the biggest global opening of all time.
beat avengers 2 domestically.
the level of dialogue generated should at least be comparable
to other blockbusters in that range.

Or, rather, they aren't as frequently over sharing as kids are. It's the same reason why NCIS and Big Bang Theory are the biggest shows on TV but it feels like no one talks about them in social media. The younger a show/movie skews, the more social media presence it has.

but it leads to another more important question.

in this day and age,
how does a movie OPEN UP to those monstrous numbers
without a large social media presence/pre-hype?

i think thats part of reason everyone is scratching their heads.
even the studio lol.

In response to Reply # 52


  

          

It's such a tenuous thing. Has it been too long since the original? Not long enough? Did sequels diminish it for people? Since the people who saw the first as kids are all 30+, will enough of these old farts make it to the multiplex? Will the Chris Pratt factor be enough to draw women that are on the fence?

The answers were no, no, no, yes, and yes, apparently, lol.

The 61% of attendants at 25+ also I bet makes it sound like it skews even younger than it actually did-- I'd bet well over 50% were over 30, since the kids who saw JP in theaters and were blown away by it on its initial release are roughly 31-43 now.

There were more "think pieces" and rantings about Entourage than there were actual people who wanted to see the movie. If we went by social media or online sites, you'd think Girls, not Big Bang Theory, was the biggest comedy out there.

I'd also add that this has been kind of a lousy summer so far so I think that a lot of people have been itching to go see something and Jurassic World was the first movie that (in theory) kind of crossed demographics and appealed to most everyone.
And I know that I definitely underestimated the draw of Jurassic Park. People who usually aren't talking about new movies were saying how excited they were for this one.

In the end, this was a case of the silent majority making itself known.

Jurassic gets old people who wanna see action/adventure and dinosaurs, people in their 20's/30's who loved the OG Jurassic Park, AND little kids who will always and forever like dinosaurs.

Fast & Furious generated more social media buzz because it's a franchise made for people in their late teens/20's.

Avengers generated more buzz because everyone wanted to know who was in it, what they did, all that "OMG VISION PICKED UP THORS HAMMER !!!111" (sorry for the spoiler lol) type stuff.

JW pulled in ERRBODY, including those who are sick of superhero movies. It's the ultimate "I gotta take my kids to the movies but I don't want to watch some mind numbing cartoon shit" flick.

Chris Pratt won.

what you said might be true in terms of demographic appeal.

but jurassic world didnt have the same pre-hype
as furious 7 or avengers 2 going into opening weekend.
those flicks obviously had wild momentum
and the franchises are proven global juggernauts
(that had to be built up over multiple films).

i posted industry estimates as close as thursday
that had jw pegged at a $115 mil opening,
which was already surprising.
the fact that it almost doubled even those estimates
is kinda mindboggling.

the jurassic franchise went from retirement to belt holder in one fight lol.

disney land with dinosaurs run by people who are super stupid and make super stipid decisions (didn't even clean up the mess from the last iteration when a whole bunch of people got killed)

electronics that magically work after sitting for 20 years

people who aren't characters as much as they are types (the career-focus woman who is totally disconnected from her family but then suddenly becomes wonderwoman....in heels the whole time)

cool motorcycle navy guy who is too cool for school saves everybody while bantering his way through life

magic one-with-nature black dude knows the dinosaurs...just less than cool motorcycle guy. luckily he doesn't die

evil guy who doesn't respect the dinosaurs just wants to turn them into weapons plots and schemes

two kids (angsty teenager, and nerdy-withdrawn little brother) serve as POV characters for child viewers

people randomly get eaten by dinosaurs in fun and creative new ways

pretty cartoony to me

In response to Reply # 0


          

It had nostalgia for the original movie's fans, and plenty for kids throughout... First thing I said after was that it was one of the better movies to show kids who are ready to watch more than PG rated films. They will LOVE this movie.

My complaints were mostly lobbied towards the story, as in... why would anyone continue to open a park with dinosaurs after failed attempt after failed attempt? How can there be a sequel? These could be the dumbest MFers of all time if they continue creating dinosaurs and gene splicing them with other fish/reptiles/amphibians.

I liked it though. Obviously not perfect, but it was quite entertaining.

I assume this was suppose to be a visit to their aunt during their Christmas break but they could have eliminated that and made it a spring break since this movie came out in the spring.

Other than that, I had a good time. It was fun! A little predictable but aren't they all

I really don't care about this film - so it decide to make half a billion dollars on opening weekend and is the biggest opening film ever.

‘Jurassic World’ Scores Biggest Opening Weekend in History, Beats ‘Avengers’ Record
http://variety.com/2015/film/news/jurassic-world-box-office-record-avengers-1201519679/

Brent Lang
Senior Film and Media Reporter
@BrentALang
“Jurassic World” now holds the record for the biggest opening in movie history.

The final numbers are still being tallied, but the dinosaur thriller has inched past “Marvel’s the Avengers” to become top dog on the all-time list, with a debut of roughly $209 million, according to insiders. The superhero blockbuster was the previous record holder with a $207.4 million bow. Universal initially estimated that “Jurassic World” would open to $204.6 million, but the adventure film had a stronger than anticipated Sunday.

It had some stiff competition for audience attention on Sunday night — both Game 5 of the NBA Finals and the season finale of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” generated a great deal of buzz that could have cut into ticket sales. Box office analysts say that moviegoers may have opted to check out the film on Sunday after hearing about its monster opening in order to be part of the conversation.

“It inspires people to go to the movie theater,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “Everybody gets caught up in it.”

Legendary co-financed the sequel, which cost $150 million to produce. Colin Trevorrow directed “Jurassic World,” with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard playing the leads.

Universal debuted the film in 4,274 theaters, the widest release in studio history. Heading into the weekend most analysts predicted that “Jurassic World” would kick off with between $125 million and $135 million. BoxOffice.com Chief Analyst Phil Contrino said that “Jurassic World’s” over-performance is analogous the recent monster openings of “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “American Sniper” that dwarfed estimates on the strength of audiences’ reactions.

“This was off the charts big in terms of how it broke out and became must see really fast,” said Contrino. “This is a movie that benefited from a new era of Thursday evening shows, which helped spread a very enthusiastic word of mouth.”

Globally, “Jurassic World” became the first movie to cross $500 million in a single weekend. It debuted to a massive $100 million in China and opened in first place in all 66 international territories where the film was released. Based on that performance, Contrino said the film will cross the $1 billion mark “without even blinking.”

even If so, im gonna assume it wasn't as widespread as it is now
wit all the lie-maxes, etc

also the Thursday opening is huge




but yea still an amazing result for a summer monster movie, even tho the plot, pacing, charaters etc were trash.

..better CGI, with a lesser cast.

while it wasn't a snoozer, there's really nothing new about this film.

sure, they enhanced the dinosaurs (bigger, faster, stronger, etc.), but that's not enough for me. the humans made the EXACT same horrible decisions. its almost as if jurassic park never happened. except it DID, and apparently, no one learned from it.

...my oldest son and I noticed how closely the ending paralleled the climax of "how to save your dragon 2"

e.g.

new "alpha" comes in and takes away the trusted pack from the hero

trusted pack overcomes its programming/instincts and returns to the original "alpha"

the villian, who didn't respect the animal and only wanted to use them as weapons, gets their come-uppance by said disrepsected animals

Not even kidding that was definitely a highlight for me.

The good: Saw it in IMAX 3D (for $10! Hello Nebraska!), liked most of the graphics/cinemetography, the shot of the mosasaur eating the ptero eating the chick was great. Liked Chris Pratt and the decisions he made. Really corny but I liked that that boys found Jurassic Park and had that lil nostalgia moment. Also LOVED that the T-rex was still the boss bitch

The bad/wack: almost all the characters except Owen and the two employees in the control room, the chick from OITNB and the dinosaur toy guy. The kids stunk, the mom/dad/divorce angle stunk, the setup for a sequel stunk. Hate that the CEO died he was hilarious. Final action sequence went a lil long imo too.

Overall thought it was pretty cool. The first Jurassic film I'd seen since the OG so I don't have a frame of reference from any of the other sequels.

Like, test audiences were like, "Again?!? That's some bullshit. The black man ALWAYS gets eaten by Raptors, yet somehow nerdy ass BD Wong survives EVERY TIME." And they had to shoot it again.

That's what I thought while watching it, especially as after that scene were he *almost* dies, I'm pretty sure dude is not seen again for the rest of the movie.

The babysitter coming up short was the most random and gratuitous scene in the whole movie.

It's all solid PG material until suddenly the pretty, seemingly mute British babysitter has the worst, most dragged out death scene in the whole movie. Not even the "villain" of the movie goes out that badly.

A friend said it was like if somehow Rob Zombie got onto the set just to shoot that one scene.

I seriously doubt dinosaurs would kill only nice people quickly. My main take away from that is that shit got real....really quick.....for errybody.


SN: What is it about our movies that makes us have certain expectations about what should happen in a film? I feel that we're probably missing out on potentially great stories because so many American films end on an upbeat.

fun summer movie, very entertaining.

besides the other obvious not very believable story points which are whatever (it's a movie about rampaging dinosaurs so who really cares about all that), but after the Indominus Rex is finally killed, why do they act like everything's cool and they're now safe when there's a freaking Tyannosaurus Rex and Velociraptor running around loose in the park? i mean cmon. but again whatever, we got to see giant dinosaurs rampaging and tearing shit up so it's all good.

But that's likely because my expectations were about sea level high. Fun with no brain, basically a re-tread of the first.

91. "the blahest of blahs."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

action tropes 101 from start to finish. copying the the ambush scene from Aliens (twice) and T-Rex snout attack in closed quarters from the original (three times) were the worst offenders. not to mention the boring characters with nonsensical motivations. was there even a single creative or interesting idea in this movie?

well-paced though. it felt shorter than two hours.

I liked Safety Not Guaranteed, but this was fucking trash.

I am concerned about Episode IX

Episode IX will be written by Rian Johnson, so I don't think that will be an issue.

I just felt like nothing worked the whole time I watched JW. like, there's nothing in that movie that I would say is a high point.

98. "Johnson only did the treatment, I believe."
In response to Reply # 96


          

The script itself is being written by Trevorow and his writing partner, who has Jurassic World, Kong: Skull Island, and Monster Trucks under his belt so better hope that was one rock solid, fleshed out treatment that Rian handed over.
