The final battle against the Indominous Rex is one of the most ridiculous things I've seen on film. and I fucking loved every sweet moment of it. Blue and the T-Rex teaming up? And then having that little "well done, bro" moment? Absurd, stupid, and yet SO awesome.
>>43153 And the best part about that is they trick you into thinking they are doing a repeat of the Spino fight, by having the Rex get is ass kicked thanks to the Verizon Wireless Presents Indominus-Rex's arm advantage but then the swrev happens and everyone goes AWWWWW! Great moment. Even if the fight end the same why as the shitty first IDW JP comic(see pic). Because what else are they going to do with the BIG one? >>43151 Non that I saw.
Also the reviews are in! http://moviebob.blogspot.se/2015/06/review-jurassic-world.html http://channelawesome.com/chris-stuckmann-jurassic-world/ http://www.toplessrobot.com/2015/06/tr_review_jurassic_world_jurassic_world_dino_time.php http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/06/10/jurassic-world-review
And now too talk about the bad stuff, because its not a perfect movie. The 3d starts out bad but gets. (That winder background looked so shit!) Would still recommend it when shit get going. Claire is not the mad scientist the trailer makes her out to be. Instead she is Twilght Sparkle: Workaholics without her number assistant dragon to keep her on the ground. And the movie gives her so much shit for it and I could not stand that. Like when she is on the phone with her sister and said "if she gets kids" her sister corrects by going "when you get kids". Fuck you Hollywood, your worse then vidjagames sometimes. I'd rather have nothing then watch you poorly jerk off them old "family values" again...
And ALOT of people makes really FUCKING stupid decisions, but thats just par for the courses. Still, those godsdamn fucking kids!
One could also make a case about Owen being to Gary Stu'ish I guess. But not as crasy as Blue ninja skillz. There where guys carrying stuff out of the room just before she showes up. What?!
And one would think they would have cleaned up all the old stuff after retaking the island. Cool call back though.
They also shit on Drone warfar harder then the Robocop remake. Because something alive that WANT to kill everything is better then killer robots just following programing.
Finally, my fav JP dino, Dilophosaurus, only gets a mention and a(badass) hologram cameo. But I will take what I can get, give how they got shafted in the last two movies...
Anyway, so is Site B still a thing? And dont stay after credist, they dont show anything. Even if you could show the Fiendish dr. Wu being up to something. Or get shot in the face given that one line delivery. Atlest they have a set up for those hybrid dino soldiers now. NO JOKE AND I WANT IT! Or just Riptors.
The benchmark for this movie is whether it's going to be better or worse than The Lost World. While it's not going to surpass the original movie, it can't possibly be worse than Jurassic Park III because that would require malicious intent.
So Jurassic World is a dumb movie with stuff that annoys the hell out of me. This is not inherently an issue though, as Jurassic Park is also a dumb movie that annoys the hell out of me sometimes.
Off the top of my head (VERY MILD SPOILERS FOR THE LABYRINTHINE TALE OF JURASSIC WORLD): +I actually like the kids in this one. -Leans a little too heavily on characters and elements of the first movie too much. The new CEO is basically just Indian Hammond with just a slight dab of dickish book Hammond, Ian Malcom's fucking drivel is spread over a few characters (Chris Pratt, mission control guy, Chris Black's African buddy), and they ape the Jeep Scene about 4 times +There's some real fucking good dinosaur murder -Wrong T-rex sound effect -Ultimately pretty minor for me because I don't cry tears of blood over effects and there's no real way to justify puppets in daylight, but the cgi is noticeable +The aunt starts out as the Lawyer but her Sigourney Weaver levels increase in a pleasing manner over the movie +Chris Pratt -The notion that people are BORED OF DINOSAURS so they have to make a super dino is dumb but whatever, what I can't get over is the Dinos For the Military subplot and the notion that priority 1 on retaking the island wasn't pumping the Aviary with the heinous chemical weaponry known to mankind +They do such a good job at Dinosaur Disney World that I honestly would be okay with a movie that was just exploring that in depth with nobody getting eaten -No Richard Attenborough because he's dead +++++++++++++++++++No Jeff Goldblum because if there's any god his career is dead
I liked it. It certainly blows TLW and 3 out of the water. I would have to watch this and Park back to back to really compare the two.
>>43166 For the most part it didn't seem that the issue was people getting bored of the dinosaurs (the attendance was obviously good, and visitors visibly loved the spectacle), but that people got used to the idea, that the HOLY SHIT factor was getting lost.
>>43167 I would imagine that having to fly to a remote South American island probably limits exactly how high their traffic can get, and may require them to specifically target a small group of returning rich folks.
>>43168 Maybe it will become more common now when they are going have(maybe) to sell off there asset to recop loses. Planteater petting zoo is still the shit! >>43166 >Dinosaur Disney World that I honestly would be okay with a movie that was just exploring that in depth with nobody getting eaten May not work as a movie BUT would make one hell of a series! Live action, cartoon, cg, I dont care, JUST GIV ME!
>Jurassic World already had been expected to score the biggest June opening of all time (way above Man of Steel’s record $116.6 million), but it also earned the biggest debut of the year, beating Avengers: Age of Ultron, which (only?) brought in $191.3 million when it opened in May. Jurassic World also earned a whopping $82.8 million on Friday, giving it the third biggest opening day of all time.
>A monster hit, indeed: “Jurassic World,” as it turns out, took in $208.8 million at the North American box office over the weekend, 2 percent more than estimated on Sunday and enough to enter Hollywood’s record books as the biggest opening ever, Universal Pictures said on Monday.
>The previous record-holder was “Marvel’s The Avengers,” which took in $207.4 million over its first weekend in 2012.
>>43338 I like to compare it with the scene with Gennaro and the Rex in JP.
Both are characters who are slightly annoying and not really made endearing to the audience but get deaths that are way more brutal and humiliating than they deserve.
Maybe it's done because that's what would actually happen when the animals go out of control in that situation. And if it hadn't been them it would have been some other character (I had my money on Pratt's friend dying but was pleasantly surprised when he lived), but that death scene has to happen to *someone* to show how dire the situation is.
There's a name for that trope, it's not Worf-ing, it's something else.
>>43338 >On the phone with her sister, Claire uses the phrase “if I have kids,” prompting Karen (Judy Greer) to disapprovingly correct her to “when,” before tearfully expounding on the importance of family values.
Every time I see somebody criticize this line, they always neglect to point out the fact that Karen was very obviously about to enter some kind of business meeting right after their conversation. If the message of the scene was supposed to be that a woman having a career is a bad thing, that seems like a very strange detail to leave in.
Yeah, seems like the line is supposed to make the idea of children vs. career a zero-sum game with one choice winning over the other—with the obvious “winner” being “children”, of course. (What woman would choose career over children, amirite‽)
>>43409 >>43411 Personally, I didn't have any problem with that part, because in context it made sense. If it was Claire saying "gee I need to have kids" than yeah, it's stupid, but the person who said that was her sister, a woman who quite obviously has a very different set of values. Plus, that kind of joke has been done since forever using a characters' mother, just yesterday I was watching The Fifth Element and there was Corben Dallas' mom pestering him that she is never going to be a grandmother. Am I supposed to be offended by that line?
Hell, the sister is facing an imminent divorce, so it is not like having a traditional family worked out perfectly for her.
>>43411 Again, Karen obviously has a career while raising two kids, so the message obviously can't be that you have to choose between the two. I'm seeing a lot of people getting really mad at the idea that a mother of two could possibly think that having kids has improved her life. When did the idea that your family is more important than your job become misogynistic?
>>43425 See, what we have here is a failure to communicate. What I heard her say was something like "Even though I may have had to make sacrifices in other areas of my life, being a mother has brought me more joy and purpose than anything I would be doing otherwise. I encourage you to do the same someday." What you apparently heard was more along the lines of "Because you are a woman, you having a career is a bad thing because it distracts you from fulfilling your primary purpose in life of marrying a man so you can birth and raise his children."
Man, I remember that comic making me madder than it should have. It ascribed a lot of qualities to Owen's that just felt like the artist had never seen the movie or just outright wanted him to be "problematic" rather than looking at what was actually there.
...and why does everybody look like they came out of Steven Universe?
>I like to compare it with the scene with Gennaro and the Rex in JP.
Hell, compare it to Jurassic Park 2, where the super nice balding tech guy gets ripped in HALF by two t-rexes just for trying to save Malcom's life, and Malcom and crew don't even give a shit about it.
The only difference between World and JP 1 & 2's brutal death scenes to people who did nothing to deserve it was that this time it happened to a woman, and that makes it "sexist" to certain stupid people.
My guess is that they knew somebody had to die hardcore, some side character that we prolly don't care about. So the assistant got chosen. I'm not sure the scene or even the movie overall would have changed much in any way had the assistant been male.
"Well, one guy got eaten on the toilet. Second dude got double eaten, just plain ripped up by two T-Rexes, (insert hardcore eating death from 3, if present. Can't remember the events of that movie for jack.)"
"What do we do for the fourth movie?"
"Well, somebody's gotta be eaten right?"
"Right, but...we did that already."
"Well...shit...let's make it really really something, then! Like, you think the character's gonna get eaten, then...they *don't* but then they do...but they *don't*...THEN they do!"
"Brilliant! It's like the Final Destination got all up in here!"
"...The fourth Final Destination movie?"
"That's the fourth movie, THE Final Destination, it-"
>>43463 >(insert hardcore eating death from 3, if present. Can't remember the events of that movie for jack.) There was the guy the raptors didn't kill in the "They actually set a trap" scene. After the trap was sprung, one raptor grabbed the guy's head in its mouth and snapped his neck. That's the most memorable of the three on-screen deaths in that movie.
>>43801 Spielberg can be quite the pill, but that also comes from not understanding what cartoons can be more than a "toy commercial' many pin them as. And yet hew was knee deep in animated productions in the '90s, go figure.
