Meh -- none of them measure up to "Sharknado" and its 23 sequels.

Kong Skull Island was better than any of them but the first Jurassic Park.

The fact in the 1st Movie they treated the T-Rex like the Shark in Jaws, made it oh so awesome.

The indoraptor, a mix of Indominus rex and a velociraptor.

Wait, the freaking Indominus was already a mix of a Rex and a Velocirapter, now we're just throwing more raptor into the genetic stew for the next big bad?

I actually liked 3 better than 2. I was a big fan of book version of the lost world and to me the movie adaptation just wasn't even farking close. they basically took some plot elements and then incorporated it into a really terrible script. 3 reminded me more of the original film for some reason.


/still haven't seen Jurassic world

Jurassic Park III wasn't a total sh*t-fest. Decent casting, some pretty good dino fights, and a few call backs to the original.

I hope he didn't give the T-Rex indigestion.

We went to the original. It was so loud my daughter just buried her face in my shoulder. For 90 minutes.

Crichton made a career out of scaring people about Science.

What about the 2 rexes that eat that guy who's trying to winch up the Winebago?
Even the rex stomping into the galimimus herd was better than many of those choices.

i'm on the '3 is better than 2' train. while 3 wasn't nearly as good as 1, it was decently acted, the effects were good and it had some fun dino moments. 2 was incomprehensible and boring- make fun of the weird raptor dream sequence, but at least it was strange and interesting.
 
2018-06-21 07:01:02 PM  
3 wasn't very good, but it was still better than the lost world.
 
2018-06-21 07:14:32 PM  
I saw the new one at a preview last night, unfortunately it's not very good, although it does have a few good action sequences.

I've never seen so many people who like Jurassic Park III in one place. There certainly weren't this many at the theater.

/Lost World sucked.
//3 was worse.
///JW was good in the same way Solo was good. Just don't think too hard.

I took the kids to see the new one last weekend.

I slept from about 6 minutes in until 10 mins from the end.

Two thumbs up!

3 sucks. A snot nosed kid survives 6 weeks on the island alone, while one of the experts sent to find him doesn't even make it all the way off the plane.
 
2018-06-21 07:50:05 PM  
And here I thought I was going to have to fight the "3 is better than 2" fight all by myself.

Téa Leoni completely ruined the third one with her constant shrill shrieking and yelling.  I would have liked it otherwise.

If you watch the Honest Trailers commentary for this video, they spend a bit riffing on William H. Macy's character and how much better the movie would be if he was the focal character.  I'd do them one better and say that if you got rid of Sam Neil entirely and just had the Billy Brennan character, it'd be a much better movie.

And you can't knock the action sequences.  I mean, the movie kinda sucks storywise, but that pterodactyl cage scene is awesome.

3 was serviceable.  2 was total crap.  The scenes in San Diego were embarrassing.

There is very little that can't be improved by William H Macy.

Jurassic Park is basically the same story as Westworld.  Crichton got paid twice for the same book (then multiplied exponentially).

No it wasn't.  It was a better film than JP2.  Ever though it did suffer from the "guns don't work in the Jurassic Park" world issue.

dittybopper: No it wasn't. It was a better film than JP2. Ever though it did suffer from the "guns don't work in the Jurassic Park" world issue.


It was a worse film by virtue of the simple fact that the people were dumber*.

And I hate dumb movies with dumb people in them doing dumb things. Makes me squirm in my seat and exclaim "why did they do that?!?!"

/* With the exception of Vince Vaughn's character in JPII who is the dumbest character in the entire franchise.

Good point.

Kids can be pretty resourceful.  A smart kid can make connections an adult wouldn't see.  I've worked a bit with kids, as a foster parent, little league coach, Cub Scout leader, and Odyssey of the Mind coach, and as a parent myself.  You give them the opportunity, and sometimes, they'll amaze you.

Of course, sometimes they won't. But at that point, you wouldn't have much of a film.

New Jurassic World is entirely meh. Chris Pratt has like one funny line the whole film, horribly misused. The writing was dreadful and the chemistry between actors non-existent:
Boy-Girl chemistry: Zero. A surprise kiss actually made the whole theater laugh nervously.
Boy and his dog dino bond: Nada.
Adult-child familial bonding: Fail, and they try soooo hard.
Young-nerd sidekicks: Not funny, not interesting, not believably engaging either. They and the child could have been killed sadistically and I would have just shrugged.

The whole story is also pretty dumb, and the villains are just terribly 2-D and irrational.
Finally: The teased Jeff Goldblum, and delivered like 15 seconds of Jeff Goldblum, and that is UNCONSCIONABLE.
