Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

Modern movie magic is really something.  Ignoring living, breathing dinosaurs on screen for a moment, I went to see where the Lockwood Estate actually is.  It isn't.  They built that facade for the movie on some public land in England.  The interior scenes and even the rooftop scenes were sets at Pinewood Studios.

I finally got around to seeing this and I'm more excited for what comes next. Ever since the Lost World, there's always been that threat, "what happens if dinosaurs invade the mainland?" Well, now we have it.

It was an odd choice to set most of the movie inside a mansion, and these humans were walking, talking puppets of evil, but I did enjoy it. Blue is just a legitimate character and I'm ok with it. Maybe its because once I accepted 'volcano' as a plot device I opened my mind to anything, because that's something that might have annoyed me before. Or maybe current events just really makes me want to cheer for somebody.

Lots of other stuff I could get to, but I'm late to the party so only a few. I'm ok with Maisie being a clone, but.. how long ago did hammond and lockwood have their falling out? I feel the timeline here doesn't line up, maybe. Like when did his daughter die, when did hammond find out and get pissed? Name dropping Isla Sorna rules but...we ignore the fact the area became a preserve? Like, they couldn't have shuttled dinosaurs to this other island?

And speaking of Sorna, Malcolm was exactly who I wanted him to be but only having him bookend the movie is a shame. I feel with dinosaurs everywhere we need some of that OG cast back for Jurassic War, or whatever the next one is called.

Found the first one of the new sequels disappointing, this one i felt was much better and has some nice effects, more likable characters and felt like it was better than part 1 of the new sequels in my view and is underrated.

I've just been watching Fallen Kingdom for the first time on DVD, it wasn't bad per say but it really seems to have more focus on effects or puppets than the human element of the story. One thing I did sort of manage to establish from this film, is John Hammond's legacy has been pretty much screwed up or misread in favor of cooperate greed and its pretty much panadora's box than genie in a bottle.

 

I feel the island stuff was pretty much rushed in favor of the underground complex storyline with the idea of taking the Dinos off the island for good, also, did they forget, again about the other island where Dinos roam free without human involvement? I'm going to say, yes, they did, I think Jurassic World simply discard the previous sequels because everyone seems to have forgotten about the T-rex that was let loose in LA, I think it was, back in Lost World and people seem to have forgotten nature chose to wipe them out for a reason but then it seems like humans or rather Doctor Wu is pretty much obcessed with playing God. In general, the so called human villians of the film were really under developed, in this film, I mean the hunter character, he obcessed with Dino teeth, yet he should know better than to get into the cage of the most dangerous Dino made, to date.

 

For the third film, I think the story could be rather weak, because:

1. The Dinos as far as we are aware are all female, easy enough to track and kill the Predators, minus Blue but she would likely evenly die anyway as she was the last Raptor, so old age would take her along with wounds from traps she might step into bu accident

2. Lack of mates would lead to inbreeding and evenly they would die out due to genetic flaws.

 

The possible strengths of the third film, depends on how long its been since Fallen Kingdom:

If its been like ten years or so, there could be a lot of rouge scienists creating clones of clones and them being weapons on battlefields across the US (face it, it be very hard to sumgle a 60 ton living creature to another country and keep the creature alive) and there be normal people in hiding because the Dinos are loose and maybe gone rouge.

 

If less, maybe a year or two, the US Groverment would likely of setup a task force to deal with Dinos including tracking down the ones that were shipped out before hell broke loose at the complex, the kid who let them loose in the first place, cannot be held accountable because they are under age thou Fallen Kingdom teased the idea of her being a clone of someone who died and the housekeeper/childminder/carer could hold the truth unless its all written down in the book her grandfather was clinging to.

 

Overall from Fallen Kingdom, its a reasonable movie and at least sets up for the next installment in the series unlike another movie series that pretty much shot its self in the foot and keeps shooting its self, it will remain unanamed! JWFK, not bad but really lacks desent character moments, its pretty much a movie that wants to be a thrill ride than anything else and the lesson to take away from it is: The human race keeps repeating the same old mistakes, do not screw around with Mother nature, she fights dirty!

I liked Fallen Kingdom, but I still find Jurassic World to be my second favorite (after JP), as it was awesome to actually see the park in action.

 

On to the Isla Sorna stuff, they never mentioned it on screen, but it seems in 1999, between JP2 and 3, scientists went back to the island and cloned more dinosaurs, such as the Spinosaurus (which was mentioned in JP3 to not be on any of the lists), and the new dinos screwed up the ecosystem, so they brought them all to Jurassic World.

 

http://jurassicpark....a_(Movie_canon)

 

I do wish something had been mentioned on screen, but at least there is an official explanation.

 

I also think one of the biggest suspension of disbeliefs is that Claire was not nailed to the wall after the Jurassic World incident.  Being in charge of the island should have made her majorly responsible for what happened.  Instead, she creates the Dinosaur Protection Group...  (I like her character, so it is not all that bad)

I think Claire likely quit her job and the blame shifted to Ingen its self for mutable failures thou if I were the groverment and the island falls within their jurisdiction, I would hold a massive investation into what transpired on the island to cause the disaster and order a halt to all cloning of Dinos but then I think what was happening in JW2 was more the ilegal side and it was a black market auction and of course everything goes horribly wrong, again because life finds away, a way to screw things up massively. As for the extra Dinos, it was said in JP2 there was another island which was the real factory floor of the work, the lab on the park island was more for show and tell than anything else, so the other Dinos could of been produced there, John Hammond did say "No expense spared in the original and Doctor Wu seems to be building upon the work started by the founders of JP.

Actually, that is the second Island, Isla Sorna, where JP2 and 3 take place, whereas Isla Nublar is where JP1, 4, and 5 take place.  They were created on Isla Sorna then brought over to Isla Nublar.

I believe new fluff has been released when Fallen Kingdom came out regarding the two islands. Mostly ingen were creating 'off the books' dinosaurs from the beginning (Spino, Ankylosaurus ETC) on Sorna, and the restarting of Jurassic World by the Mazerani corp used and shipped serveral dinos from site B for their upstart island.

 

Still no explanation for how Rexy and the Brachiosaurus survived Nublar when the site was supposedly destroyed though.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

By what? Bombs in the book but when did JP2 or 3 say the island was gone?

Even in the first JP, it never struck me that the film was trying to set Grant and Ellie up as a couple. Yeah, it seemed like they were kind of leading that dig together, but Ellie struck me as more of a senior graduate student, maybe finishing her PhD, while Grant was running the show (Sam Neill has a good 20 years on Laura Dern).
