Jurassic World

We had fun watching the movie and then had pizza out. For lovers of the original movie, they had some fun nostalgic items in the new movie that you’ll get a kick out of seeing. I thought the Asian guy was the same in the lab and sure enough he was. Twenty-two years later.

They had one of those backstory dumps to explain away why the kids could get an old vehicle running–“Remember how we worked with grandpa on his old car?” Or words to that effect.

Young kid: “Oh yeah,” and voila, old car fixed.

Even the hero said, “I wonder how the kids could have figured out how to get the old car running.”

Hmmm, instead of being a mopey teen, he could have been fixing an old junker he was totally into and couldn’t part with and then that would have given him much more character as far as why he didn’t want to leave, and made the scene with the car believable.

Oh, all right, so when are dinosaurs in a theme park believable? Really.

Still, that’s what makes fantasy fun. That it’s so believable, it’s real.

One of our all time favorite parts, even though it was really brief, was Jimmy Buffet grabbing not one, but two margaritas from his Margaritaville Bar at the Jurassic theme park while the pterodactyls were swooping in for happy meals. Hilarious.

My daughter commented on the heroine’s hair. It was so coiffured, and then supposed to have been spazzed in all the running and such that she was doing, but instead it looked like another curled and waved fresh and professional do. Not like the rest of us would look like if we were running through a jungle in fear of being ripped apart by dinosaurs. 🙂

Hey, it’s fantasy. Like a woman waking up looking gorgeous in bed, not to mention she’s wearing makeup, but also, her hair is just perfect.

All in all, we liked the plot, the memorabilia, and the characters. I loved the part where the hero was using clickers for training the raptors. My daughter used them to train her corgis. I never did with mine, but it was so hilarious.

So we had a delightful time. One of the most memorable lines for me in the original version was something to the effect, “They do have dinosaurs on exhibit here. Right?”

I have often repeated that concept: The wolves at Milwaukee Zoo wouldn’t make an appearance. Same thing for ghosts on a ghost tour. No shows. And at the International Wolf Center, they often get that. The wolves aren’t there when the visitors want to see them.

So it follows that the dinosaurs aren’t on a schedule. 🙂 <3

We watched Between last night where anyone over the age of 21 died in a town. It’s interesting what concepts authors will have and how they show what would happen in a fantasy way if all of a sudden some calamity strikes.

I have to say some of those who are supposed to be under 21, are a LOT older than that.

Okay off for a another play day. Our terrible storms amounted to light showers in the morning and that was it. So we had another fun walk with the dogs last night.

Have a super great Sunday!

  1. Oh my gosh! I HAVE to see that movie. I loved the first two movies. The 3rd one annoyed me because the woman screamed through the whole thing.
    When the first one came out I took my daughter to see the midnight showing of it. She was 8yrs old. We still talk about how much fun it was and how scary it was.
    I love Chris Pratt so I think I’ll love this one.
    I hope you have fun with your daughter.

  2. Same here. The kids loved it and we had so much fun. 🙂 They had some great ideas for all the movies, but they just went low budget on some of the actors, or poor scripting or something. I couldn’t stand the woman either in that other movie. And the guy who had been in the first seemed so tired in the third movie. The girl who had played with him in the first was really half the show so with her gone, and that couple whose marriage was on the rocks and they were so annoying, that kind of ruined it. I liked the guy who stole the egg though. He was great.

  3. LovEd the movie ! I did not notice that was Jimmy Buffet but we laughed at the scene! I was glad the incorporated the original also. I loved the guy in the control room wearing the old t-shirt!

    • Yes, and the goggles! It made me think of how the boy had them on and the lawyer said if they were heavy, it meant they were expensive. lol And take them off.
