I can't believe how bad this film is. Jurassic Park. Dinosaurs on the loose - how do you f*ck that up? You write a terrible script, weak characters, you shoe-horn in an even weaker central emotional thread that we seem to be expected to care about just because.... uhm uhm uhm divorce is sad, right?... and then the actors do their bit. Chris Pratt made me laugh a few times, but not in that good Parks and Rec tubby-guy-says-silly-things-ha-ha-ha way. The performances are mostly terrible.
Everything about this film is awful, but you know how you can't not look at a car crash?
I'm just glad I didn't pay to see it. That only encourages these people.
To everyone who dislikes or hates Jurassic World; do you have a strong connection to Jurassic Park? I'm not too critical on movies to start with but I really enjoyed World probably more than Park. I wonder if it's because I don't have a strong connection with Park?
I think this will be an issue with Star Wars big time.
Jurassic Park is probably still my favourite summer blockbuster film type thing, but I don't know how strong my connection is with it - it's not like it got me into dinosaurs or anything, I just thought it was good. I still think it's good. But there are many, many films I'd watch ahead of it. Jurassic Park has more meat to it, the ideas behind it are dealt with in a tidier fashion. In fact JP
feels like its driven by an idea - the novel, man screwing around with nature - rather than this idea being shoe-horned into the film about big dinosaurs, as in JW
This film had four screenwriters. Maybe that's why it's a mess. One writer, two at the most, who has/have a clear idea of what they are writing about.
