Jurassic World

When I recently bought Jurassic Park on Blu-Ray, it came with a free ticket to see Jurassic World. Let's just say I'm glad I didn't pay to this this somb*tch. While Jurassic World is a classic summer time mindless movie, I definitely don't see it as a blockbuster and setting records.

And yet I kind of get it. Jurassic World is deja vu of Jurassic Park in so many ways. So maybe folks are reliving their youth with fond remembrances of Jurassic Park through Jurassic World. At first I thought seeing some scenes were paying homage. Then it became, damn, they just rewrote scenes. By the time the movie was over I was actually a little pissed. I just saw this same movie a few nights ago in my theater room. Only with some notable cast and character changes.

The dinosaurs were phenomenal, especially close up.

The two kids... forgettable. Despite being a major part of the story like the first one. You could see storyline a mile away. They almost spoon fed it to us.

Just really really disappointed. And yes, with the article above, this will be fast tracked to continue the series.

So it made a gazillion dollars and lots of people enjoyed it (I liked it, didn't hate it), but when you think about, Jurassic World is pale comparison. And yes, I'll make the direct comparison. They are very much like each other. Ugh
