the correct answwer to "who shot first" will always be "Harrison Ford if he ever hears that hugging question again."

Han shot first. Plain and simple.

@  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.)

@  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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  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.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

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"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

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

Jeff Goldblum's role looks suspiciously like a cameo. In the beginning of the movie. So he can be worried and repeat a famous quote from the original and then disappear until a "told you so" bookend after the climax.

Pretty much.

 

It's been said he'd have a small role throughout.

 

 

I like this trailer. Yes it has definate 'Lost World' notes but I'm excited anyway.

 

I also believe I read somewhere the Isla Sorna will feature in the film, so that could be where they're shipping them to.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

That's a carnotaurus.

There's an "allosaurus" later chasing after people in the gachapon cart after that, it trips and falls tho.

Anyway, this movie looks friggin' stupid.

Meh. I really want to be excited for this, but just not feeling it. Lost World's my favorite of the series, don't need to see it redone. JW at least threw in trained Raptors and an intentionally fictionalized dinosaur to it's JP retread, hope Fallen Kingdom does something like that as well. Plus, JW implied the next step was to completely abuse the bioengineered "dinosaur" tech for, well, anything other than display, which absolutely enthralls the sci-fi fan in me (even if it pisses the hell off my dino-nerd side).

 

 

Kinda peeved that they FINALLY put in a damn Carnotaurus, but then they immediately kill it. :angry

Ok, I've watched the trailer and I got to ask, who brillant idea is it, to go back to an island now overrun with Dinos, for a so called rescue mission to save the creatures? Wouldn't it just be easier to get blood samples and start over from scratch, at least with the bigger ones? Then again someone just not learned their lesson about messing with nature's creatures, of course, the fact JW as a park failed was not the fault of normal dinos but the human army who think they can use them as weapons and the people when they begin messing with the genetic code to create a brand new creature who shouldn't of been created in the first place, so who worse, the dinos or the humans that recreated them?

Don't like the trailer.

I was 7 when Jurassic Park came out. It had a huge influence on my love of cinema and was pivotal in shaping the use of CGI in modern films. Most importantly it used it in combination with practical effects and knew when to hold back for human drama/acting.

This trailer is bloated with CGI dinos, set pieces and trailer cliches. There's not an ounce of charm in it. Big, bold and obnoxious.

Jurassic World was basically about how treating these things as "assets" is wrong.   And that they are animals (genetically engineered ones, but animals never the less), and should be treated with respect.   Also Owen was pretty well from the start devoted to these things as beings... he cared about (see: the raptors).  Not surprising in the least he'd want to save them.

It's pretty clear from the movie, the humans are the problem.   The dinos are just doing what animals do (modified ones or not).

Ian's speech in the trailer just bugs me.  He goes on about how these dinosaurs were here before us, when they clearly were not.  These are genetically developed abominations that have been designed to look like what the company wants dinosaurs to look like based on focus groups, not how the actual animals appeared.  There should be no reason to save these things, and in fact if any of them got to the mainland, like they did in the original "Jurassic Park" novel, they would be a dangerous invasive species.

 

Real conservation efforts allow hybrids of endangered species to not breed and die out, and yet he is going on and on about saving these corporately designed animals, which, as has been already said in the thread, can also just be remade from a genetic sample.  It is even worse since in this case there are completely originally made up species on the island that never existed in any form.

 

Let nature take its course and eradicate them.
