    It looks absolutely ridiculous. I'm going to watch the hell out of it.

    As a kid, I loved dinosaurs. When the first Jurassic Park film came out, I was eight years old, and it blew my mind. When it came out on VHS, I watched it until the tape wore out. To this day, I have never been that obsessed with a movie in my life. There's no way I'm not seeing the new one.

    Also, I love Andy Dwyer. I mean Starlord. I mean Chris Pratt.

    Here's the new version. It's interesting to see what they changed in the CGI at this point.

    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!

    I was married at that point, but I was just blown away seeing this in a theater. (And yeah, when I was in elementary school, my fields of obsession were (1) dinosaurs and (2) Greek and Norse mythology. I had a lot of plastic dinosaurs I would use as my playtoys, having them attack and devour my star wars figures at some point.)

    Anyway, CGI was just starting a revolution at the time. T2 had pushed the limits -- it looks a little clunky today, but Cameron developed morph technology and took things to the next level. And then... the dinosaurs came out. And they looked like real dinosaurs. My jaw dropped watching that movie in the theater.

    Yeah, I really like him too.

    That prehistoric marine reptile (maybe a mosasaur? I can't believe I remember that name) looks awesome. Although a Megalodon would've been even better.

    Grossly oversized mosasaur. Assuming that Great White shark is about 15 ft long (conservative guess) then that mosasaur would be, like, 150 ft long. That's many times longer than any actual mosasaur.

    Then again it sounds like the premise of Jurassic World is that they're not just "bringing back" dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals for display but are instead monkeying around with the genetics to make entirely new creatures in the name of marketability and profits.

    Everyone who's anyone knows about megalodon.

    My family has watched Jurassic Park so many times, we should use the logo in our coat of arms. So of course I'm gonna watch Jurassic World.

    First of all, Hollywood can't even produce a decent movie in the last decade.

    Why in the hell do you wanna continue watching any of their stuff? This movie looks atrocious on the trailer.

    Forget Jurassic. All the other ones were horrible.

    I was huge on dinosaurs as a child too so I also adored the film.

    It still makes me laugh when my mum recounts the story of taking me to see it for the first time and when everyone else was either shocked or a little scared by the T -rex apparently I was going "Cmon...eat em...get em tranno".

    Tranno sounds a bit like a huge, cannibalistic transvestite...but still.
