I'm still not digging the super-dino plot. It feels like double dipping on the don't play god themes of the first movie.
To the first point: Pyrian was referring to the fact that a "properly" (by your standards) equipped security force quelling a dino outbreak moments after it happened would make for a short, dull movie. As would most any movie where a central conflict was easily curb-stomped in moments.Charcharo said:Pyrian said:Nobody wants to see a movie about people effortlessly... Actually, I can just stop there.Charcharo said:No one ever makes such movies for me
I do. So it is OBVIOUS it aint nobody.
I want a peaceful Dinosaur movie. You dont need to make them into monsters.
There are many other ethical concerns about what is being done. More risky creatures then dinosaurs can be remade.
It is just that when your movie represents what amounts to fairly dumb animals, or a fairly small but huge and fleshy (vulnerable) target to win against ANY type of soldiers, kill an entire park and act like an effin death squad... you lost my suspension of belief. Jurassic Park 1 was already pushing it and it made more sense.
And no, mutant DInosaurs have no application That hammers my suspension of belief even more
Really at this point I think they're just trying to have some fun with it. This franchise already lost its dignity when JP2 and its Peta bullshit rolled around the corner. And the first movie hardly had much of a message either beyond '*gasp* Wow, dinosaurs.' And it was not what I would call realistic, seeing as they increased the size of the raptors by two just to make them more intimidating. Also, I doubt any regular predator would so ceaselessly pursue its prey to the point that it would jump onto a rickety skeleton.Fox12 said:Yeah, that's the aspect of the originals that was so important. It took a lot of restraint to avoid turning the dinosaurs into monsters, or into super animals. The whole point was that, if left alone, they could live in peace. This just spits in the face of all that. The nuance is gone. Ever since the awful third movie, the film makers have been trying to up the stakes by making some new super dinosaur. What's the difference between this and the Spinosaurus from 3? It's even bigger and more dangerous? At what point does it even make a difference? The scariest thing from the original was the velociraptors, not the T-rex. Having tens of thousands of people also robs the film of the feeling of isolation it originally had.
It's like they sat down and said "what looks cool" as opposed to "what looks real," and then proceeded to pull out the doodles from their 8th grade math class. I'm not too impressed thus far.
They are rescue pterodactyls that help clear the park when their is danger.Scarim Coral said:Also pterodactyls picking up people? I thought they were trained or tame to not do that? I thought originall that scene, the hybrid dino entered that street or something.
Trufax: that's part of the film cut from the trailer. At about 15-17 seconds in, where Mr Pratt is standing being surrounded by raptors we don't yet get to see what comes next:SonOfVoorhees said:I want a deleted scene where Pratt starts a dance off with the Drex ala Guardians of the Galaxy.
