So, I got to go see Jurassic World yesterday. I haven’t been to the movies in 6 months O.o weird considering I used to count that as a hobby of mine. We got invited by one of my coworkers/game group members, so why the hell not.
I like it than I thought I would. I wasn’t impressed when I saw Jurassic Park 3 in theaters, however many years ago that was, so I didn’t know what to expect. But, as the dinosaur loving 5 year old in me would say OMG IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!
Its set 20 years after Jurassic Park and they have finally opened a successful dinosaur theme park.
I’m looking at this theme park and thought “I would soooo take my kid there” even though I know yah, people are about to get eaten in this movie.
A comment I will make about this movie is that it felt like it tried too hard to be scary. I seriously felt like I was watching a Resident Evil movie (yah, I made a few Biohazard jokes during the movie). Scientist creates thing, cooperation uses thing to make money, thing eats people: there you go, spoiler free synopsis of Jurassic World… or maybe Resident Evil…. I don’t know. But getting back on topic, a few of the jump scares got me pretty good.
There is only one returning character from Jurassic Park to this movie:
Having him return, made things interesting. (Love B.D. Wong as an actor, I watch too much Law and Order, I squeed seeing him and Vincent D’onofrio in this).
Well, there you go. My spoiler free thoughts on Jurassic World. Bonus picture, my kid riding a dinosaur:
And, yes I’m that asshole that brought my baby to the movies with me. She was quiet except for when she cheered the dinosaurs on during the big fight scene, she was excited as we were.
So, give in to your inner child and go see this if you have a chance.
