I love the original Jurassic Park and I am excited to see this.




Looks like it is going to be done like Ghostbusters Afterlife. Not a spin off, not a reboot, but more of a continuation of the original.
Bringing back the originals blended with new characters.
I thought Ghostbusters Afterlife was really well done. Hope this is done as well too.

I’m a huge Jurassic Park fan as well. Very interesting to use many of the original characters of the first movie. I’ll definitely be checking this one out this summer.

Of course I'll watch it! It looks awesome. But I feel like maybe I've watched the whole thing after that first trailer. Wink

I will have this on disc when it comes out, I've got all the rest and enjoy them for what they are.

Saw this today. No Spoilers. A butt numbing 2hrs.15min. CGI dinosaurs were good, but a bit repetitive for me. Everyone who's ever been a lead in any of the films (adults) was in it, for reasons that were not entirely clear since the plot didn't actually need most of them. I suppose it was just a way of wrapping up the 'old guard' and leaving the way clear for the new leads.

The movie is very loud and I would be cautious about taking very young children due to a couple of rather explicit scenes involving people getting eaten.

A bit of messaging about climate change thrown in from Professor Malcolm and the obligatory strong diverse female in the movie just to fly the other cast members around. There are two plot threads running through the movie for a reason that don't really get explained very well until about 2/3 of the way through which makes the first part a bit disjointed and confusing.

Better on the big screen I think, I don't believe I'll be adding it to my DVD collection until it hits the bargain bin in WalMart.

All in all, I got my money's worth, I give it 5 rounds out of a 10 round magazine.

I'm sure I'll see it, but I feel the same.

The whole series has jumped the shark. I know the premise is sci-fi, but it gets sillier and sillier.

It's crazy to think 6 movies have been made based off two novels.

Disappointed I had to wait 20 minutes before the first person got eaten.

Wife and I saw it Saturday afternoon. MEH. I didn’t really care for the locust plot. I like to see carnivores. Large Dino’s eating people.

Oh well.


slingshots are my favorite

It was ok, but nothing special as it goes. I also was never a big fan of the originals. We lost power for 22 hours, so I went to the next town over and enjoyed the a/c for a couple hours.

Very underwhelming. Was really expecting better.

I wasn't excited for this, but I did want to see the appearance of my favorite dinosaur ever, the Dimetrodon. I had waited a long time for this in a Jurassic Park flick, and I felt I owed it to six-year-old me. And then, they were only on screen for, like, less than a minute. DISAPPOINTED!

"Actually, Dimetrodons are pelycosaurs, not dinosaurs." Sorry, I meant to say, my favorite pelycosaur.

"Pelycosaur is an outdated paleontological term. They're known as non-mammalian synapsids." FINE! They're my favorite non-mammalian synapsid! I can't keep up! Jeez!

It was more impressive to see Dimetrodon pop up in the third season of Land of the Lost back in the '70s, and he breathed FIRE too!

Also, I loved the Dimetrodons in the 1959 Journey to the Center of the Earth where they were played by Iguanas with fins glued to their backs.

Saw it tonight. I enjoyed it. Some of the usual new hollyweird messaging was there but it wasn’t obnoxious. I went on a kick and watched all the previous ones the past week while I’m on my rower. Some of it was repetitive and predictable but still a fun watch. I took my friends 11 y/o and he loved it. Probably wouldn’t of enjoyed it as much watching it solo. Enthusiasm from a kid like that is contagious.
