that's cool, I'm more up for a sequel than I am a remake, although every sequel to Jurassic Park so far has been utter gash, so I'm skeptical

You didn't like the T-Rex wreaking havoc in San Diego in the second one?

I totally agree with the over CGI feeling at the Mosasaur, not at the dinosaur model itself but actually at the crowd. It's just too bloated to feel tangible, when they could have simply hired 300 extras max for the scene.

Although it won't live up to Jurassic Park - which caught lightening in a bottle with Stan Winston arguably reaching his peak and CGI becoming viable, a great understated cast and Spielberg before he started slacking - I'm incredibly excited for it. Simply for the same reason I am excited for Star Wars 7, it's going to play on my nostalgia yet move a beloved franchise in a new direction. And who can fucking hate the idea of Chris Pratt as the leader of a Raptor gang?!

I agree.

I fucking love Jurassic Park and just the plain fact of seeing dinosaurs on screen (We need more movies with dinosaurs).

JP 2 and 3 don't come close to comparing to JP, and JP 3 in particular is just filled with absurd plot-holes, but they're fun films to watch regardless.

Plus the trailer for Jurassic World seemed great. Probably going to be a disappointing film, but the trailer got me hyped for it.

Well, if "Band of Brothers" and "The Pacific" is what Spielberg does when he is slacking....

Ehh, they should have stopped after the second one. The first two are some of the best sci-fi movies ever made. I'll probably go see it, but my hopes are pretty low for it considering how disappointing Salvation was.

I still wish James Cameron stuck around to make a feature-length version of this:

It sounds so cliched but modern cinema and the use of CG pails in comparison to simple rear screen projection and models.

These scenes in the first Terminator are so visceral and incredibly bleak, I would love Steve McQueen to make a future war Terminator movie someday lol.

The rights go back to James Cameron in 2019 so it might happen.

Slightly interested to see how they play around with the timeline but I'm not keen on the little brunette as a replacement for T2 Linda Hamilton.

I still don't know how I feel about the genetic splicing angle. Will go see anyway but liked the idea of just regular old dinosaurs better.

I like the premise of the new film.

I think we're supposed to not like the fact that they made a new dinosaur, for one thing. Because to us the concept of living dinosaurs is amazing. To the fictional occupants of the JP world though, living dinosaurs have been around for a while now, and people are now...bored. Of living dinosaurs.

Seriously, if they pull off the premise right/keep it tight and focused, then this could be a genuinely good film.

What?

The park is finally opening and there are tons of people there, I'm not sure how that equates to 'boredom' amongst the populous of the JP universe.

A T-Rex running around San Diego doesn't make the entire world, or even America alone, bored of dinosaur encounters.

That said, yes I don't think we're supposed to like the genetic splicing angle, that's always been part of the agenda of this series, "humanity shouldn't play god."

No. The park has been open for quite a while in Jurassic World. I forget how long, but at least 10 years I think.

Are there tons of people there to see the new breed of dinosaur? Couldn't tell from the preview.
