More Dinosaurs running wild!
I'm always up for more dino carnage.
I've enjoyed all three, but would really like to see more dino on dino action. The spino vs. t-rex fight was great, just too short.
Sam Neill (Alan Grant) has said in interviews recently that Mr. Speilberg has an idea that takes the JP franchise to a whole different level. Sounds interesting to say the least...bring it on!
And they actually hired a writer before they started shooting on this one!
1 question: Why?
I'd like to see them do something original with the JP concept, but not by making up dinos. It's more interesting when they use dinos that actually existed. I'd love to see some underwater stuff.
I think this is nothing but a way to milk more money out of the series. I found JP3 to be a pointless film, and I won't feel any different about JP4. Dean
would'nt mind a story about the actual Park again. How it came about, the aftermath of Jp1 or somthing. I remember that the comic book of JP had these 2 different storylines at some points during their run....although there was also a story about raptors flying a plane. Hope they dont make that one
Of course this is a way for Universal to milk the series. JP is the third biggest franchise in history (behind the Star Wars and James Bond movies), earning over $1.9 billion worldwide. They're likely going to keep making these movies until they stop making money. It's a good business move on the studio's part, afterall JP is Universal's biggest money-making property and brings in huge profits in DVD/VHS sales, as well as respectable toy sales on top of their big box office grosses. Another plus for the series is that the biggest expense is ILM's $25 million fee (the production cost of all three films combined is $229 million). The series doesn't boast any expensive stars to speak of and Universal can pretty much put whoever in these movies and people will go and see them mainly for the dinos. ILM is the real star of these movies. If JP4 is a big hit for Universal, JP5 won't be too far behind.
Don't get me started on this dung shat....
Whenever the next one comes out I'm always asking myself is can it compare to the first? I think the answer in the back of my mind is no, but I always welcome the chance at another try from el Speilburgo. Something about dinosaurs in a lush rainforest setting on a deserted island is very different and appealing from the usual Hollywood fare.
I also welcome these films. I believe that it has promise, and this mysterious new idea that Spielberg has has me very curious as to what he has up his sleeve for this one. To those who are crapping on the idea, I say open your minds just a little more an try not to think that this will be the same exact formula once again. I mean who knows, it may be something so totally off the wall and fresh that it'll be unlike any of the previous films. Can't wait.
stars have a way of hyping up a movie so that you'll think that it's a fresh idea going into the movie, whereas it's basically the same idea recycled from the old movies. however, they haven't even started making the movie yet, and the writer they hired just finished writing tripoli, so who knows. i liked jp3 a heck of a lot better than the lost world, so i hope the trend continues, in which each sequel gets better...
