How many times can people honest to god go back to a deserted island filled with dinosaurs?
“When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event”.
Two trailers down, and I’m still not overly impressed with it. Nothing has jumped out at me, or in all honesty impressed me. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t a huge fan of Jurassic World, and I happen to hold a pretty special place for Jurassic Park in my heart. This newest Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer is mediocre at best.
Again how many times can they do they same thing? Lets go to the island! People will get eaten by dinosaurs! Dinosaurs will save humans! That appears to be the entire plot of this movie. Learning some lessons from the predecessor, they seem to have made this one a little darker in tone, and more people will certainly get eaten by a dino, but still, something is missing. I don’t get why this whole relationship between Owen (Chris Pratt) and blue, a velociraptor is at the centre of this movie. It’s stupid okay? Dinosaurs and humans shouldn’t be friends. Humans should be running as fast as they can away from them. It just takes me out of the whole movie. Why does that need to be a thing? These movies should pretty much write themselves, and when you have two mega stars in Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, things should be pretty simple.
Oh, they also decided to add in another hybrid dinosaur, but they didn’t really let us see what it is. My guess, and I know this sounds insane, but I think it’s going to be a human/dinosaur crossbreed. If that happens I will get up and walk out of the theatre. Something tells me, that’s the direction they are going in, and I can’t believe someone in a writers room, wrote that, and then I can’t believe it got approved. I know, things always must be bigger and better in sequels, but sometimes that’s the wrong approach. I for one just want to see a great film, and I don’t need all this extra stuff going on. It’s dinosaurs, no need to make it complicated. They eat people, have them eat people and try to scare us in the process, simple!
I’m either right on the money and this is going to be, wait let me quote the famous Ian Malcolm – “One big pile of shit.” Or, I’ll be having a great time come June 22nd, only time will tell. At least we didn’t have Claire running away from a T-Rex in high heels again….
Check ya later.
