We need more teeth - Jurassic World

jurassic world movie review we need more teeth



Jurassic park came out in 1993 - I was 6 years old! OK, now that makes me feel old!

I can’t remember exactly how old I was when I first saw Jurassic Park, all I know is that from the minute John Williams now infamous score kicked in, I had goosebumps - and it still gives me goosebumps to this day. Do do dooo doo do, do do dooo doo do….*shivers*

Who doesn’t love dinosaurs? 

I even enjoyed the sequels. *shame*

So of course, I had to go check out Jurassic World if for nothing else than to hear that music in Dolby digital surround sound. Based 22 years after the initial Dino-disaster that was Jurassic Park, the park is bigger, the dinosaurs are getting a whole lot bigger and the crowds are getting bored - you've got to wonder what the hell is wrong with people! Hello! They're dinosaurs! Jurassic World - the theme park, has only made a 2.1% profit in the last 12 months, the investors want something big, something scary, something that will give the parents nightmares. Insert scientists who think's it'll be  OK to throw a little bit of everything into a pteri dish and cook up Indominous Rex

Here we are, all worried about the inevitable zombie apocalypse but have we ever worried about the day when genetically modified dinosaurs come along to reclaim the planet? I know I’m going to start practising my kitten heeled running, dinosaur taming skills. I might even start carrying around a flare or two, they seem to come in handy in these situations.

Here’s a few thoughts I had when watching Jurassic World;

  1. PRODUCT PLACEMENT could you be any more obvious? 
  2. Hammond <3
  3. I want to go to Jurassic World and roam the plains in a gyroscopic ball-buggy.
  4. “You just went and made up a new dinosaur? Probably not a good idea”
  5. NO WAY is this film a 12a - should have been at least a 15! 
  6. I see you, Dr. Ian Malcolm!
  7. If humans ever do discover how to un-extinct the dinosaurs, they’ll probably put them in Disney’s Animal Kingdom park.
  8. Several nods to the original Jurassic Park, much appreciated!
  9. JAWS!
  10. Cirque-Du Soleil Pteranodons!

I really did enjoy the film. It was 2 hours were my brain could completely switch off and go adventuring on Isla Nebula. The first hour was a little slow, I had to wonder, where the heck are all the dinosaurs? The music, the expected sweeping pan shots of the plains, filled with Aladar and his buddies, get me every time. The second half was bone-crunching, grown men squealing, blood splatteringly good-fun. What more can you ask for on a Saturday afternoon?

Any other Jurassic fans out there? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,

    1. I really want to have a go of one of the gyroscopic ball buggies! They are fantastic! I love how they even did the in-ride info video in that cheesy style, it reminded me of the pre-ride videos at Walt Disney World!

    1. I did enjoy the film but I'm worried about the re-makes that are sure to follow! Can't they just give up Isla Nublar to the Dinos and let them be for a change? They never learn!

  3. I don't understand why big films like this make product placement so obvious! It kind of ruins the "realness" of the film x

    1. Honestly at times it feels like you're watching a spoof or a sketch because the product placement is that obvious!
