    I was still in awe of the moment when the tranno is chasing the jeep and runs right through that downed tree / huge branch without stopping. it just seems to explode into splinters and it keeps coming.

    That rocked so bad.

    I do love that part. Especially when Ellie is yelling "SHIT! SHIT! SHIIIT!" lol

    I was more enthralled with the raptors, though. That malevolent intelligence. Damn, they were cool.

    Okay, and am I scanning this right, but it looks like Pratt's character is actually training the raptors to treat him as momma raptor and then riding them out to kill the new nasty big bad dino? If so... HELL YEAH BABY!
    When I heard a new jurassic movie was coming I was like "Meh, only really liked the first one."

    But when I saw that I was like "Ooh, I do want to see that!".

    A little unsure about the movie, based on the clip I saw of Howard and Pratt... the dialogue felt a little clumsy to me.

    But hey, we've got posters:

    I have a bad feeling about this. I also thought the giant CGI shark in the trailer looked terrible. The dinosaurs in the original Jurassic Park looked more convincing (granted, not all of that was CGI.

    There was nothing about the trailer that made me go "hey, I wanna go see that." I'm not sure that there's much potential in dinosaurs running amok in a park full of people. This kind of thing usually works better when people are isolated. Consider the original Jurassic Park, or the original Alien. It's sort of a "man vs. nature" theme, and the best way to do that is to get man away from too many people, and put them out into the "wild" of some sort. (That is, away from civilization.)

    I think this well has dried up.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Yeah, that's my mixed feelings. First trailer looked kinda cool, but that clip that showed actual prolonged footage... meh. Just not sure if the "jokey" Pratt demeanor will mesh well.

    And they've had a bomb or two since the first. So.. is it a bomb or is it something more?

    The first Jurrasic Park is still pretty amazing. It was one of the first movies with the "new CGI," it was a huge jump in what had been capable, and the dinosaurs were astonishing. Still remember that first gasp when I saw them on the screen.
