Enough already with the Jurassic Park reworkings.
I liked the original 1993 movie very much. It was thrilling, scary, often funny – despite a few misguided lines here and there.
After seeing the trailer for the very similar-looking Jurassic World, I’m almost certain the latter flick’s gonna be less interesting.
We’ve been through this territory, haven’t we? Dinosaurs run amok at much-heralded theme park. How much of the same thing can we take?
The box-office results in 2015 should have the answer. I don’t yet; I’ve only seen the preview. But I suspect it won’t be anything original … or that interesting.
I guess Prehistoric Mammal Park doesn’t have the same ring, does it? Sigh.

I loved the original Jurassic Park. The two sequels were fair at best. They seemed heavy on special effects and light on “why should I care.” Now, after watching the 2+ minute trailer, I’m wondering which way this one’s going to go. I have to agree with you. My intuition (which I hope to be incredibly wrong) is leaning toward the “Not Feeling It” camp. Good post.
Thanks. I hope we’re wrong, too! Unfortunately, I think we’re right. Despite the presence of Chris Pratt, the movie will likely be a reiteration of the original film. Too bad.
Fingers crossed! I’m a Pratt fan. First liked him in Moneyball and I’m happy to see his career take off. I look forward to reading more of your posts in the future. Cheers!
