It's official!

My bet is on the premise revolving around dinosaurs (possibly man-dino hybrids too) bred for war by that dastardly Wu. How could Wu?! 'Cause Wu can too! :funkycomedyscience:

Either way...

Hatch, baby! Hatch!

EDIT: I'm not being totally sarcastic. I actually like the new turn of this franchise and I'm genuinely excited to see where it goes next.

Teaser poster and subtitle revealed! Poster needs more embers, though.

Well, I didn't find the earlier trailers to die for but I think this is looking much better. The horror is strong with this one.

Fallen kingdom indeed. Dreadful film.

  • Treated as a very un-Jurassic-Park-like Chris Pratt mano-a-mano action vehicle
  • Major plot turns are broadcasted in all the advertising and the film leaves little else to surprise
  • Indo-something again
  • Bayona is touted as some master of suspense horror but those qualities are few and far between throughout the film
  • Ending set pieces are murkily shot and wholly conventional
  • Central child character has far less of the much-needed moxy and grit that past child characters in the series have had
  • Dinosaurs are front and center so often that their expensive CG patina becomes distracting
  • Goldblum, the franchise's most hallowed asset, is here in short and unremarkable supply
  • Basic dramatic situation is left unresolved except as an invitation to see Jurassic World 3

My interest in this franchise is down the tubes. I try not to dwell on negative experiences too much but I thought I'd try to collect the main reasons for this disappointing and frustrating time at the theater as a thought exercise. I recently wrote about vitriol being easier than fair consideration so I thought I'd put a bit of that into practice.

If the bearers of this franchise wanted to go truly horror and boldly so, they should've adopted the human-dino hybrid idea from the Sayles script. That has both real horror (see below) and fresh sci-fi (unlike below) potential.

I can't disagree with the video's core arguments.

Admittedly, I got lulled into seeing Fallen Kingdom out of nostalgia or a desire to experience what I'd hoped would be a thrilling conclusion with an amped-up audience in the theater ala Jurassic World in 2015. But nothing in this movie came even remotely close to that. It was an utter disappointment. I even considered walking out about 1/3 of the way into this film (the only time I've ever exercised such a gesture was for 2015's Tomorrowland). But that video's criticisms as well as those from other quarters are all finally falling into place for me. I'm glad to no longer be blinded by the sound and fury of this franchise. Done.

I think it also needs to be canonized that Colin Trevorrow is a horrible and worthless filmmaker.

He may not have directed this one, but his script, ideas and sensibilities as an artist are goddamn terrible.

I haven't seen this yet, and probably won't now, but I lol'd at what Richard Roeper said:

"It's Rocky V bad...'
