I haven’t been the biggest fan of the Jurassic World series. I dunno. They’re just nothing special, as far as I’m concerned. But at least it looks like they’re going for broke in the threequel. And I’m as much of a sucker for nostalgic cameos as the next idiot.
It looks fine to me. Lots of dinosaurs. All the familiar actors. Plenty of action. I don’t even really remember what exactly I haven’t cared for in the earlier Jurassic World movies. They’re just not…well put together? I dunno. But this looks fine.
Jurassic World: Dominion comes out on June 10.
I’m not much of a fan of the Jurassic World series. It’s lost all the majesty of the original Jurassic Park and is now just a generic action film with dinosaurs. But a trilogy is a trilogy, so we’re going to get Jurassic World: Dominion later this year. And while the Jeff Goldblum cameo in the last film was rather small and weak, Dominion looks to be making up for past mistakes.
It doesn’t matter to me that Alan Grant, Ellie Sadler and Ian Malcolm are coming back for Jurassic World: Dominion. It means nothing. What are they going to add to a world conquered by dinosaurs? Just some simple fan service for a property I’m not much of a fan of.
Still, it’s happening, and I’ll probably go watch it! Jurassic World: Dominion comes to theaters on June 10.
So apparently, when those dozen or so dinosaurs were released at the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, it was enough to spread out and inhabit the entire world. Apparently nothing was done to stop their spread or kill them or anything. The government and the military just let them do whatever they wanted.
Which brings us to Battle at Big Rock, a short film made by Colin Trevorrow, the actual director of the Jurassic World films. One assumes this is a preview of what’s to come with the Fallen Kingdom follow-up. It’s a fun little film. You just have to suspend your disbelief on the premise.
I like it, for the most part. The family is a good group and the effects are top notch. Perhaps I even like Battle at Big Rock more than Fallen Kingdom! The next movie should star these people.
The premise of dinosaurs taking over the world is good…the idea that we reached that point from the lame ending of Fallen Kingdom is bad.
Unfortunately, the sequel to Jurassic World was not called The Lost Park: Jurassic World. The movie will never live that down. But how about also never living down the…
And the How It Should Have Ended:
In the end, we’ll all forget this movie until the next one comes out, then it will just serve as a middle movie that nobody particularly cares about in the end. Made a lot of money, though.
I’mma gonna head to the movie theater after getting off work today to go see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I still think that’s a terrible name. Fallen Kingdom? What sort of subtitle is that? Honestly, they should have gone with Jurassic World: The Lost Park.
Thanks to Honest Trailers for giving me funny videos to post when I’m feeling lazy and figure everybody could use a fun laugh!
