Go See Jurassic World
June 16, 2015 36 Comments
The Internet is currently inundated with reviews for the country’s latest record-breaking box-office smash hit, Jurassic World
I’ve been waiting forever to see this movie, and have been more excited than the average person. In preparation to the release I watched the previous three Jurassic movies, read both books, got the Jurassic World blizzard, and have been playing dinosaurs with Baby A. nonstop.
My poor wife has been obliging me in all this nonstop dinosaur talk.
Finally went and saw the fourth (or should I say the second installment) last night and the wait was very, very well worth the excruciating pain.
All the reviews that say Jurassic World is almost as good as the first movie given to us in 22 years ago in 1993, are spot on.
It was great to see the world’s most awesome amusement park functioning as a fully operational theme park…the crowds, the tourists, the attractions, the lines, the ticket counters, and even Starbucks and Ben and Jerry’s.
Part of Jurassic World‘s genius is pretending the previous two movies never even existed, which, in our best moments (even as die-hard dinosaur fans) we wish never really happened.
The only thing this movie lacked from the first one – and I mean the only thing it lacked, was that it didn’t drag out the suspense as long as the 1993 hit did. Don’t get me wrong – there’s plenty of scary moments and jumps, but I just wanted that intensity to be dragged out just a bit longer.
Jurassic World provides us with the greatest opening of the franchise, very few cheesy moments, subtle and hilarious laughs, and some brand new favorite dinosaur moments. It’s definitely a thrill ride for the ages and I will be anxiously awaiting the next installments!!!
