I'm going to see it. It's dinosaurs. I'm not looking for in depth social commentary or some illuminating morality tale about science. The mosasaur in the wave sold it for me. Anything past that scene will be gravy.

I was thinking about going seeing it friends, but I am very hesitant. The last installment was not my cup of tea - despite dinosaurs  en masse.  Do tell if the awesome scenes make up for the likely shitty story :)

Saw ad for it on TV last night. Urge to see it did not materialize.

Honestly I'm half I'm kinda done with sci fi films. The first movie was great but... too many disappointments over the last 2 decades.

I watched it yesterday at the local Imax. I mostly liked it. Like the original, they telegraph early on who is going to end up as T-Rex chew toys. There are some silly action scenes and lots of dinosaurs running through puny human constructions. I'd say its not as good as the first one, but better than the other sequels.

The weaponised raptors made no sense at all and were not used in a way that really made the case for them existing either.

I liked the last one well enough that I'll watch this eventually; I'm not sure I'll pony up for it in theaters though.

It does not open until the 21st here in the states, I believe... but no interest here other than as a mindless spectacle.  I may see it as I am now using Moviepass and it is essentially free, but it certainly looks like it is a cash grab with no real vision behind the story.

Yeah. Same here. Which is weird, because I like Chris Pratt and I like dinosaurs and I'm fine with CGI in my science fiction, but somehow the first one just felt lame. As in actually lame -- it felt like it was limping along to the credits. The only emotion I felt from the actors was the urge to go home, maybe make another movie about something else.

And if anything I get the impression that this one is going to be even more half-assed. So will probably pass until it shows up on Netflixs or Prime or otherwise falls out of the internet on me...

I tried watching Jurassic World and I think I made it 45 minutes before turning it off and deleting it from the DVR. It was just predictable and boring, despite Chris Pratt.

Oh, you're watching it wrong. You fast forward till you see dinosaur. Once you don't see dinosaur, you fast forward again. Repeat.

Jurassic World was so bad.  I went in really wanting to like it even if just for a pop corn flick, and it failed me on every level.  I understand wanting ‘hey, dinosaurs’, but the plot at everly single step of the way got so bad it distracted from everything else.

And every trailer I’ve seen for this (including the newer one that laterally gives away every single bit of plot left) make it look worst at every level.  They even managed to make me cringe at every single line Jeff Goldbloom says in the trailer!  How do you do that!

Anyways, film probably not for me.   awesome, for real

I enjoyed Jurassic World even as people around me tried to pick apart plot holes. I'm thinking, you know the dinosaurs get out guys. We're not watching an instructional film about how to run an amusement park.

I'll see this opening weekend.

^ I'm also excited for the game. I know my dinos are going to get out, but by golly we'll spare no expense.
