    Pretty much the premise of the movie(s). It's meant to be entertaining, not realistic.

    I don't know, I liked the first one and then Jurassic World. The better technology has made for a much more realistic-appearing movie, and I thought it was visually stunning and extremely entertaining. I'm not looking for deep societal commentary or a plot that makes me think too hard. It's entertaining, that's all. A way to get some thrills, some laughs and some oohs and ahhs with my kid and family while relaxing in a movie theater. Or at home, should I choose that one.

    We watched the new Robocop last night - The Boy loved it, it was fun. Not a stunning cinematic masterpiece or a social commentary that changes our way of thinking, but it was fun.

    Thanks for all the reviews guys. I like waiting for them all to hit Directv's lineup. Much cheaper -- AND I can slouch out on the sofa. Bonus points for not having to put a bra and makeup on and go out in public! :rotflmao:

    That wasn't the point of my sarcasm. I enjoy natures/genetically engineered violence. Love to see the asshole of the story getting viciously eaten.

    I wasn't clear, your comment I agree with. It's part of the irony of the ongoing storyline.

    I get it..

    But, since it's pretty much boils down to running, screaming and killing, "Friday the 13th part#12: Camp Counselor day at Jurassic World", would be a much more amusing movie..

    So do you like the other ones? Most of the were meh to me. However, the trailer for this one looked good.

    I really liked the first one (park). The first world was okay, but had too much silliness. This one was a little less campy and kind of had that “old yeller,” feel with “Blue,” the raptor. I Could watch Bryce Dallas Howard run from dinosaurs all day.

    I like all of 'em and have 'em on DVD. Well, except this new one... :D

    Dunno when I'll get to watch 'em again though. Sweetie (with Alzheimer's) gets really confused about the TV now. She often thinks the folks are actually here in our house, and if there's a car crash, she thinks it's our car, etc. etc. (dinosaurs would probably terrify her). :/
