Jurassic World: Transient Fun, Just Like a Theme Park

Jurassic World was fun, I’ll say that much. I had an enjoyable time. But will it be remembered? Does it make a lasting impact? How quickly will you stop talking about it and get on with your lives after the movie is done? That’s the problem. I compared the film to a theme park because that is what it is. It’s there for the thrills but there’s no real heart.

Check out my full review here: Jurassic World: Transient Fun, Just Like a Theme Park.

It’s sad because Jurassic Park is still an amazing example of excellent filmmaking and will always be one of those unforgettable movies. That seen with the brachiosaurus when Sam Neil and Laura Dern first see it and John Williams’ magnificent score kicks in: now that’s cinema. Jurassic World doesn’t have any of that magic here.

Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt do their best but can't shine with such an uninspired script

And what’s up with Bryce Dallas Howards’ shoes in this film? Don’t they ever break? She traipses through and runs like a madwoman all over the jungle in them and they never break and never once does she fall over. Who’s her trainer? Beyonce?

I don’t feel like I wasted my money or time. I just wished that with all the money they spent, they could have sat down for a few more weeks and tried to really give us a really good film with the same heart that Stephen Spielberg had put in Jurassic Park.

  1. We saw this movie over the weekend also and thought it was just OK. I don’t feel ripped off over seeing it in the theater, though I would have been fine getting it from Red Box. I made the same comment on Howard’s shoes! Me and the hubby walked outside and I said, “I call bullshit that she did all of that in heels or twisting her ankle.” Everything was similar to Jurassic Park but less enjoyable, worse acting and no connection, though I did enjoy Chris Pratt’s humor. I did enjoy the virtual effects, the realism of the dinosaurs and the fight scene at the end. For me, it won’t be memorable like the original Jurassic Park.
