This was just so bland.

All that CG just cheapened everything, it didn't even look that good. This film is going to look so dated in 3 years time.

Just saw it tonight. Enjoyed it, but the whole dino-whisperer thing is stupid. I thought it was stupid in the trailer, and I thought it was stupid tonight. Also, that raptor double bluff thing they did was very disappointing, even if it did lead to an awesome fight scene. I was actually happy when the raptors turned because it made at least a bit of sense (even though it was interesting that the completely new dinosaur could understand long extinct communication from a different species even though she didn't know about the existence of any other dinosaurs in the world at all until about ten hours ago, and proceeded to kill every single one she met). Not a case of needing a convenient twist at all...

Also think it's a bit far-fetched that in the space of about 15 years people are now bored of plain old regular dinosaurs. I came out of the cinema happy so I can't be too critical, but I think that whilst this is the second best one, it's a lot closer to TLW than JP.

Did anyone else see a load of nods to 80s action films? Some of the bits in the forest - Predator
When the soldiers are dying in the forest (both times, with the video feeds, ECGs, motion trackers and the view of people's feet getting dragged away with the dinosaur tail in view) - Aliens
"[The Indomitus Rex]...will not stop..." - Terminator
Clicking the fingers in front of the raptor camera - Robocop

Thought I was overthinking at first, but there seemed to be a few too many...

The justification for the I Rex understanding the raptors was that the I Rex was part Raptor, part T Rex. I agree about the whole idea that the world is now bored of normal dinosaurs being stupid. People aren't bored of going to a zoo or safari to see a lion for the 100th time so why would they already be bored of dinosaurs. Plus that place can't have a massive attendance capacity, there must be millions and millions of people out there who haven't actually visited the park yet for the first time, let alone going multiple times and being bored.

There wasnt a single moment in JW that could even come close to the first T-Rex encounter in JP. It a 6/10 at absolute best. And at least 3 of those points are for sweaty woman.


Defo this.

I'd always thought that if something like JP opened it would be like the queue for space travel, probably with the price tag to match. It's not exactly your typical theme park...

I know they said that I Rex was part raptor, but Chris Pratt also said that it hadn't been socialised with other dinosaurs which is why it was a little bit bitey. I'm no psychology expert even for things that aren't extinct, but from what I remember about the studies I read about at A-level about locking kids in rooms to see what was nature and nurture, it seemed to indicate that a lot of communication was learnt. It was lazy scripting in my opinion. Oh, we need a bad guy for this bit, RAPTOR HEEL TURN! Uh-oh, the humans need back up, RAPTOR FACE TURN!

It has been open for 10 years prior to the start of the film, and there were still 20,000 people in attendance. People aren't as interested in the dinosaurs but they're still interested

Yeah I remember them saying they had 20,000 people a day in the park. All I could think was how realistic is the travel infrastructure to get that many people to the island a day.

I think once you start talking about the travel infrastructure for a dinosaur theme park you might be going a little too deep

Sequel set for 22 June 2018, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return with Colin Trevorrow (not directing this time) and Derek Connolly penning the script.

I'm worried that's where they're going, via more dinos as soldiers stuff. I'm fine with them taking an entirely new direction and ditching the islands/theme park but still worried about them picking up that plot thread again

Jurassic World was basically a big set up for it :dread: there isn't really anywhere else the franchise can be taken now after that film

Exclusive: Jurassic World 2 may be off-island, with open-source dinos
"[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island," Trevorrow said. "That’ll get old real fast."

"I feel like the idea that this isn’t always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. And when you look back at nuclear power and how that started, the first instinct was to weaponise it and later on we found it could be used for energy."

"And this isn’t something necessarily that was in the book but is a seed that I wanted to plant in this movie, is that might be able to grow in more of these movies if they decide to make more of them, is: What if this went open source? It's almost like InGen is Mac, but what if PC gets their hands on it? What if there are 15 different entities around the world who can make a dinosaur?"

"And Dr Wu says in the film, when he's warning Dr Mesrani, 'we’re not always going to be the only ones who can make a dinosaur'. I think that’s an interesting idea that even if we don’t explore fully in this film, there is room for this universe to expand. I shouldn’t use the word universe, because people will think we’re making a Jurassic World universe -- we’re not."

I saw it and agree with this. The best part was their first dino response team wearing bullet proof vest.

Bullet proof vests help protect them against friendly fire.
