Why you don’t need to see “Jurassic World” in theaters

Hello you awesome person you!

I care about you which is why I feel I need to warn you about Jurassic World. If you want to see a good movie go see Inside Out and skip Jurassic World. It can wait for Red Box. I recently went to see Jurassic World on the big screen and let me tell you, not the best thing I’ve see so far this year. The story was alright, the dialogue okay, and visually didn’t meet the awe-inspiring experience of its predecessor, Jurassic Park. Here are a few of the small details that really frustrated me about the movie (warning: there are a few spoilers).

Here is the basic plot. Claire works for the park at a higher level position. When Owen, the velociraptor trainer, goes to visit their latest dinosaur creation, they find the dino missing from it’s cage. Of course Claire’s nephews, Gray and Zach, just happen to be visiting during this time and when everything goes to hell they are out in the midst of the action.

Detail related issues that make me annoyed:

  • Gray never wound his Diana mini camera. It is a film camera and he just keeps snapping away like some digital thing!
  • Claire started with straight hair in the morning and it some how became beautifully wavy after the excitement occurs.
  • Claire ran through the grass and mud and somehow managed to keep her nude shoes clean and intact.
  • Claire managed to run super fast, faster than a T-Rex, in those same nude high heels.
  • The biggest problem I have is that they built the park even though they knew they shouldn’t mess with dinosaurs. We should learn from past mistakes instead of allowing tons of people to die from freakin’ dinosaurs!
  • Lastly, and the biggest spoiler, the mosasaur in the giant water tank breaks over the barrier of its enclosure to eat the scary, bad dinosaur. If it could break the barrier, why wouldn’t it have broken it sooner to eat humans?

Overall I give this movie a big shoulder shrug. This is a big dinosaur movie that falls a bit flat on the story and dialogue. It isn’t terrible but it isn’t great either.

So there you have it. My thoughts about Jurassic World. Did you see the movie? If you did, what did you think?

  1. I did notice the hair and gave an eyeroll to that, I also was not really buying the outrunning of the T-rex. Jeff Goldblum couldn’t do it and if he can’t do it no one can 🙂 I should have noticed the shoes were still clean, but I actually missed that. Apparently she actually had to train daily to run in heels, I admire that kind of commitment. I hope she earned enough money for physio and podiatrists though because those puppies would be tired and VERY sore! They probably had some on set.
    Despite little annoyances, I actually liked the film, but then I am a HUGE Jurassic Park (in all forms) lover 🙂 So I was super pumped about this movie and it was actually the first time I have ever braved the crowds to see a film on opening weekend.
    Highlights for me were pretty much everything Chris Pratt’s character did, the raptors were amazing and strong characters in their own right I felt. I also liked the Masrani guy (the boss), Claire was kind of a non-event character for me until all hell broke lose, then she was okay and kind of grew on me as time went on.

    • I know! That is dedication to train that well to wear and run in heels.

      I was a big fan of the previous movies and was really excited to see this one. I think that is why I had so many problems with the new one. I guess I just liked the first one better lol.

      I agree with your highlights. Chris was awesome. I thought the boss guy was interesting but I didn’t really connect with him. My favorite character was Lowery. Jake Johnson was hilarious as that character.

      • OMG How did I forget to mention Jake Johnson? He was AWESOME and yes I agree hilarious! I loved his t-shirt and when the two boys were in the old park and there was all that touristy stuff about I was literally saying, “oh take some back for Lowry” hahaha.
        Oh I absolutely liked the first one better, there is nothing better than the original 🙂
        I have to say that I didn’t like that Henry the geneticist was this movies Nedry, that kinda made me sad 🙁

Leave some love!
