Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

Ok, need your guys thoughts here. If I've seen the trailer, do I have to see the film? Seems like it kinda went over everything. (Is Jeff Goldblum only in that one scene?)

It's all in the trailer. Virtually all of Goldblum and every moment of dramatic tension was spoiled by it.

Yes and no. It's big-screen entertainment, nothing more. So while it's forgettable and inessential, the cinema is the place to see it, if you intend to. The practical Dino FX and CGI are very good and worth seeing on a large screen too.

I'd liken it to JP3 in that it's fun yet very silly but with a plot structure similar to JP2, except not boring. It doesn't have any of the feels of JP1 or JW1.... although that could in part be down to the near total absence of the JP theme music.

In that case I’ll skip opening weekend and probably the week after as well and try and catch it on a discount day that isn’t too busy.

It plays during the end credits..I don't know that for sure (I don't stay for credits), but that's what I heard

Saw this movie over the weekend. What a waste of time. Contrary to what seems to be the majority opinion around here, I really enjoyed Jurassic World. Fallen Kingdom felt like nothing more than a recycling of JP2 and JP3. 

The way the film ended was a perfect way to close the franchise, so of course they won't...

Also, can we please stop giving John Williams' properties to Michael Giacchino?

Y'all want hyperbole?! I'll give you hyperbole. You think I won't hyperbolize? Oh, I will. Here goes:

After a nifty opening sequence, Fallen Kingdom's first ten or so minutes are pretty darn bad. But, once Pratt shows up, and starts vibing with Howard, things get better... and continue to improve... and then the whole second half of the movie, which I'm sure all the marketing spoiled, but I won't, is just fantastic. I had the hugest grin on my face for the entire third act, and by the time the closing montage started, I was chuckling at how happy the ride had made me.

Both Jurassic World and Fallen Kingdom have clearly taken the "Biggerer, Louderer, and Dumberer is Betterer" course at the University of the Fast & Furious, and gotten top grades. There are plot holes in this movie an eight-year-old could spot, and the filmmakers keep forgetting that the T-Rex is heavy enough to shake the ground, and thus can't possibly sneak up on anyone. (To be fair, though, Spielberg himself kinda started that at the end of JP.) Throw in a few funny jabs at F***face von Clownstick, and you've got yourself a delicious, juicy cheeseburger of summer fun. Maybe that little experiment called the United States of America hasn't yet completely fallen apart after all. If your sense of shameless fun was tickled silly by the likes of The Fate of the Furious, then this motion picture is most assuredly for you. Big Grin

I am sure you will retract this comment when


She turns out to have dino-speaking and dino-strength powers in the next movie. Wasn't there some line about how Pratt and Howard "had no idea what she's capable of"? And yes, I totally want to see her punch an Allosasurus and knock it the eff out. Again, we're in the Fast & Furious land of Glorious Stupidity here! Big Grin

This is apparently everyone's biggest question.

Speaking of fictional politics in generally non-political fictional entertainment...
