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 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.

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.

Electromax: "Sayles's story was about a new character, Nick Harris, who returns to Isla Nublar, and retrieves Dennis Nedry's can with dinosaur embryo's. He is captured by the Grendel corporation, which now owns InGen, and he is hired to train five creatures that could be called "di-hu-ogs". These creatures are born from a mix of DNA from dinosaurs, humans and dogs. They are created to carry guns and would be used as mercenaries. A leaked screenplay of the film can be seen here as a review: Jurassic Park IV Screenplay Review."


It is strange that my suspension of disbelief wasn't triggered with the dino DNA being mixed with humans and dogs. It didn't click with the dinodogmen carrying guns and getting jobs as mercenaries. My WTF siren went off because they said the embryos from the first film could only survive for a few hours in that shaving cream can and it was buried in mud so there's no way anyone could find it in time for this story. The viable embryo's shelf life plot point being violated, that's where I said, "Wait, let's get real here".

Agreed! Looks like we will have to wait until 2014 for "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" though (Link)

Why wait till 2014???? Apes was one of my favorite movies of 2011. Do this!!!

Terranova was the worst show I've watched in over a dozen years. I'd watch Keeping up with the Kardashians before I'd turn that show on again.

Literally the worst piece of crap for the budget, ever on TV. Plot was terrible, casting terrible, acting terrible, and writing even worse somehow. And the CGI wasn't even convincing, looked like Sci Fi made for TV movies.

Well it was a really bad show, that was a start. And Spielberg as the producer had enough clout to shoehorn in the required angry father/son relationship trope that he's now known for but not enough to make the dinosaurs not look worse than the ones in Jurassic Park, a 15 year old movie.

cgraves67: cgraves67: 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

oops posted too soon:

Where else can they go with this story line?


Maybe a feral manchild could have been stranded on the island, and he grows up to be a protector of the mighty dino-island.

Nope. Dude is an animal rights wacko. He'd be humpin' bonobos within a couple of days.

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.

dittybopper: 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'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.

Saiga410: 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.


IIRC it was the first book that it was mentioned in, though I don't recall it featuring prominently.

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.

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 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.

What could they do with a prequel though? I guess we could follow Newman programming those 2 million lines of code.

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?
