As long as a raptor doesn't pick up a shock-stick and scream "NO!", I'm ok with this.

/Best scene of that movie
//It was a damn good movie

What contrivance is going to get those assholes on the island again? You'd think at some point they'd say, "fark off". Some freak accident always happens and that goon lectures us about chaos theory and people die.

Well anyway, are they at least going to have frickin' lasers or something?

I was pleasantly surprised by Rise...but another Jurassic Park? Stupid.
 
2012-06-21 10:12:11 AM  
I'm o.k. with this.

I liked the last Planet of the Apes movie. If the newer Jurassic Park was actually a prequel I might even pay to see it... there'd be a lot of possibilities there with good writing. Emphasis on good writing/paying homage to the first movie.

What could they do with a prequel though? I guess we could follow Newman programming those 2 million lines of code.
 
2012-06-21 10:35:01 AM  
They are so preoccupied with whether they could that they don't stop to think if they should.
 
2012-06-21 10:42:55 AM  
I've never been able to decide which was worse II or III. Perhaps this film will be bad enough to make it a moot point.

What, someone goes to the island in the first movie and gets that can of shaving cream?
 
2012-06-21 11:03:24 AM  
Maybe the dinosaurs evolve some wings and just fly all up out that shiat. Then attack Florida for some reason.

Agree about the first part, not sure about the second.
Lots of time to contemplate it though, the systems are down (a-farkin'-gain!) and I can't do shat.
Likely working this weekend because of it. gawdammitsomuch

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was an embarrassingly bad movie. On a related note, how does James Franco keep getting work? His go-to maneuver is to do every line like he's mumbling while reading it for the first time off of a cue-card with small print, and he can only seem to achieve a single facial expression that looks like he just bit into a really sour grapefruit. He hasn't done anything since Freaks and Geeks that doesn't absolutely suck balls.
 
2012-06-21 11:07:18 AM  
Well now I'm conflicted.

Lost World was a farking disgrace and JP3 was no better. But RotPotA was actually good.

Is this the one about the gun-toting, crime-fighting raptors? Because I'd watch that.

I concur. Jurassic Park: The New Batch just doesn't sound that interesting.

I was very pleasantly surprised by "Apes". Though I'd just as soon rather see a follow-up to that than another Jurassic movie.

At this point they might get me to see JP if it was a reboot. A forth is absolutely unnecessary.

2012-06-21 11:15:21 AM  
At first I though JP3 held some promise. Tea Leoni and a couple off bad-assed mercs. Some T and a whole lotta A-kicking.

Then all the guys get immediately killed and Leoni turns into one of the most annoying characters ever...

Such a bummer.

2012-06-21 11:17:32 AM  
I'd be up for a prequel. construction of site A and site B. would take us back to the familar and better era of the films. both in story quality and optimism. they don't seem to like making period movies these days though. a prequel would be early 90s late 80s. that isn't far enough in the past yet to be made in the same way people make movies set in the 60s like moonrise kingdom.

Evil-Imposter: I was very pleasantly surprised by "Apes". Though I'd just as soon rather see a follow-up to that than another Jurassic movie.


Good news then: a sequel is in the works, scheduled for a May 23 2014 release. "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes"

I can't wait.

Rise was fun, brainless entertainment on par with Prometheus. The main difference was that people had lowered expectations for the former, and unreasonably high hopes for the latter.
 
2012-06-21 11:22:09 AM  
I wish I could remember which book contained the aviary. I think that setting could be very interesting but I think it was not used in the movie because of the poor CG at the time.

Rise was so much better than Prometheus. Rise made me care about a CGI ape. Prometheus made me wish death on the entire retarded crew just to end their stupidity.
 
2012-06-21 11:25:27 AM  
A sequel to Jurassic Park never worked because they had to make up these contrived reasons to go back to the island.

"Oh, um, our kid somehow got there! And your girlfriend's there too! And um, there's a second island!

There was an easy way to get new characters onto that island.

"What? The founder of a huge company died on his private island? He was bringing DINOSAURS BACK TO LIFE?!! Right under the Costa Rican government's nose?!"

Of course that whole issue got answered in the first book, which is why "site b" had to be made up for the second.
 
2012-06-21 11:31:34 AM  
Let's take a look at the Jurassic Park storyline:

1: dinosaur island runs amok
2: different island also amok, spreads to mainland
3: second island still amok

I could have sworn that there was a scene where they had to cross the aviary at some point and get attacked by Pterodactyli. But that could have been my kid brain dreaming of what could have been neat.

Already Disturbed: Is this the one about the gun-toting, crime-fighting raptors? Because I'd watch that.


You know what makes that even more crazy is the script was written by the dude who wrote the screenplay for Kingdom of Heaven and The Departed, as well as John Farkin Sayles. I can't imagine the insanity of seeing a Dirty Dozen style Jurassic Park with Mercenary Dinosaurs wearing body armor, hunting down drug dealers and rescuing kidnapped children.

In case you need a little background on the matter. Link

Sybarite: I've never been able to decide which was worse II or III. Perhaps this film will be bad enough to make it a moot point.


JPII was *MUCH* worse. JPIII took it back to what it should be: Dinosaurs chasing (and occasionally eating) people, with a minimum of the preachy stuff.

You know what the worse part of JPII was? One of the "good" guys, Nick Van Owen, was responsible for the deaths of every single person killed on that island, and in San Diego. Every single one. He set in motion the chain of events that caused that, and he should have known better. In real life, he'd have been charged with many counts of criminally negligent homicide, and if his past politics were indicative of motive, perhaps terrorism and murder charges.

On the flip side, we have Roland Tembo, one of the "bad" guys. Except he actually cares about what happens to people, even the ones that have shown animus to him. He just wants to hunt a Tyrannosaur, because he's bored with life, having hunted every major predator successfully. He's the one that has practical woods knowledge that helps people get out of the situation caused by Nick Van Owen, and he could have saved even more people if Dick Van Asshole hadn't sabotaged his double rifle, during a time when it was pretty farking obvious that the group needed all the firepower it could get.

What a twisted sense of right and wrong that movie has.

I'd like to believe that there is a deleted scene from this movie. It happens at the very end. Nick Van Owens is back at home planning his next act of eco-terrorism. Then there is a knock on the door. He opens it. It is Roland Tembo. Roland then proceeds to beat the shiat out of Nick for about ten minutes worth of screen time. It would have been the most uplifting ending of a movie since Rocky.

ha-ha-guy: /in the real world those raptors would be hunted for sport and gone within a decade


Actually, if they were hunted for sport, they'd steadily increase in numbers.

People who hunt a species for sport generally want to keep doing that, and they will invest a lot of time and effort into ensuring that they will be able to continue to hunt their favored species.

It's subsistence and market hunting that leads to declines in prey, not sport hunting.

Really I was thinking at the rate the raptors seem to grasp modern technology, they should have their own lunar base by now.

I'm gonna just spitball here instead of relpying to everyone.

James Franco - Didn't like him in Pineapple Express? Sure not a reach in the character department, but he was great. Don't blame him for hoverboard Spiderman, thats not his fault.

JP3 - What you didn't like cell phones ringing in giant Dinosaurs? Little children surviving alone in hostile environments for months? Raptors that ignore the laws of nature because they're 'super smart?'

Rise - I enjoyed it, just thought they could have had more plot. Felt like half a movie.

Prometheus - How the hell did the two guys, who left the scary room way before everyone, after having used futuristic devices to map the tunnels manage to get lost and fall behind the rest of the group that left significantly after them? Their comms never went down yet they never told anyone they were lost. Then, when they are stuck, they go back to the one place they were dreadfully afraid of and start playing "pet the first living creature we've seen on this planet?" Seriously, that still bugs the hell out of me, and I liked the movie.

It was only eight weeks, slightly less than two months, and he was 12 years old, which doesn't put him necessarily in the "helpless" category.
