'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

because it sucked.

Lucky there's a hero arriving in July.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 June 2021 - 05:38 PM)

I think I've heard "I Need a Hero" more times this past week than I have in the past several years.

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

I always find it weaird hearing that stores in the US don't initially already taxes in their prices.

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

I wouldnt characterize Jurassic World as a good movie, but it is a fun movie. I mean, just the interactions with the Raptors alone is worth the price of admission. It definitely has its moments.

Maybe he likes only good movies?

 

Jurassic World is easily the best dinosaur movie since Jurassic Park, and I would say can easily stand up to it in terms of quality.

How the heck have you never seen Jurassic World? It is one of the highest grossing films of all time and it came out in the past few years.


I was titanically into Dinosaurs as a little kid. The book Jurassic Park was my all-time favorite book when it came out in High School (I immediately read all the Crichton I could get) and I still would put it in my favorites today. I dragged my whole family to the midnight opening of Jurassic Park the movie. I saw both Lost World and JP3 in theaters.

I have not seen either Jurassic World movies.

Why? Three children and middling reviews (mostly 3 kids, but the middling reviews made it easier to let it go). And the fact that neither of them are available free on any of the multiple streaming services we own.

Both me, my wife and the two six year olds enjoyed Camp Cretaceous. We watched the whole series in two days and the kids were very into it. I had worried it might be to scary for them but they loved it. "I am not scared of those rafters!" my daughter announced happily.


-ZacWilliam, Looking forward to a season 2 hopefully soon.

 

 

Seriously, the movie is totally worth buying. The film has its flaws, but overall its great. Its worth buying. If you have kids, they will want to watch it a thousand times. Both of my girls love Dinosaurs and watch the movies quite often.

Like Haywaire, I wouldn't call it a good movie, its a very fun movie; but I also agree with you, its vastly superior to Park's sequels.

Its better if you view it as a meta take on excessive sequels and studios' (corporations?) obsessions with making money and pursuing it at all costs.

I liked the whole meta-narrative of a property that was once was new and revolutionary became old and standard, and the attempt to "modernize" it meant ignoring/discarding everything that made the original work for a grim parody based on what sales think made it successful.

.... but then JW descended into pure B-Movie monster/action schlock right when the "bird cage" burst. And Fallen Kingdom didn't even pretend it was anything else from the start.

 

 

Also, for what it's supposed to be, the Indominus Rex is a shockingly generic design. It did spawn the whole "Build a Better Fake Theropod" campaign, which was a lot of fun.

That Build a Better Fake Theropod is awesome! Thanks for mentioning that, as I had never heard of it! I do agree that the Indominus Rex is pretty generic, but I still think it works in the movie, and it fits in with the other dinosaurs.

Exactly this. It's no where near as good as JP, but is infinitely better than JP2 and JP3.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

It's probably so they can dub the show in multiple languages and not make anyone feel "left out" if they couldn't understand whatever language they started with.  It's less work than editing the scene over and over again for different countries.  Probably gets around stuff like in Canada, too, where if it was in English, you'd also have to have it in French and so on (...I don't know if that's actually a thing with TV show text or not, but, maybe?)

Season 3 went live yesterday. I was not expecting it. Thought it was gonna be like in July. Watched the whole Season already.

Non-Spoilery thoughts: I like that they updated some of the character designs to really make you feel how long they'd been trapped there. Really nice subtle touches.

In general I love the character work for everyone. Ben especially.

All in all I really liked it. Some good scary moments and fun exciting and suspenseful enough that my 7 year olds were both sucked in and were a big reason I burned through it so fast.

I wonder if there will be a Season 4. I hope so because the ending had two notes that don't sit great with me if there isn't. One is a usual sort of thing they could pick up or not but the other was a character bit that is really discordant and aggressively unsettled to throw in right at the end.


-ZacWilliam, I assume both were left as possible hooks and the writers were just unsure if there would be more but it came out of nowhere at the last minute, was really harsh and then left unsettled in a way that does not feel good.
