Watching ‘Jurassic World’ a Second Time

The other day I was a little bored and so I decided to watch Jurassic World, a movie I hadn’t seen since I watched it in the movie theaters three years ago, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. When I saw this film all those years ago I highly enjoyed it, from a monster movie perspective. The dinosaurs were scary, the action was riveting, and the movie was very, very loud. Then as I thought about the movie I found myself getting angry. Why did they never let the lady in the movie shed those heels?! It was kind of absurd and it was part of the reason I haven’t watched the movie since.

Well, when I watched it at home the other day I discovered that it actually wasn’t as bad as I remembered. In fact, it was actually kind of a really good movie. Of course, it wasn’t perfect but it was engaging, I was horrified at times, the music was amazing, and I constantly kept getting chills. I don’t get chills from movies unless the film is kind of really good and Jurassic World was definitely that.

I mean look at that dinosaur. This Indominus Rex (I think that’s what it’s called) is terrifying! I was petrified as it kept chomping people away and chasing the heroes of the movie. *shudder* I’m so glad dinosaurs are extinct.

And at the end of the movie when the original T. Rex went to survey his island and then roared with his iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex cry (I’m getting chills right now just thinking about it) I was like, “Yeah, this is a good movie.”

I can now say that I’m legitimately excited for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. It has the chance of maybe not being as good as its predecessor but I do know one thing that it will have that’s very enjoyable; lots and lots of roaring, people eating dinosaurs and that’s what is going to make the film a blast to watch in IMAX.

If you’ve never seen Jurassic World before I highly suggest you check it out. It’s a fantastic film to watch if you’re having a slightly boring day and you might need a good movie to watch. And it’ll get you ready for its sequel coming out later this year.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Here Are My Favorite Trailers from Super Bowl LII

One of the reasons why I was so excited to see the Super Bowl was for the trailers. I’m, as you can tell from my blog, a huge movie lover and so to be able to see so many fabulous movie trailers in one night is a blast for me. Today I’m going to share with you all of the trailers from the Super Bowl that managed to blow my mind. Enjoy!

Skyscraper

I’m not a big fan of movies with Dwayne Johnson in them. They’re usually super corny and films that I just don’t want to see but I have to say, this one interested me a little bit. The story is intriguing and, if executed right, could be really enjoyable. I would totally go see this if I’m having a boring day and I just want to see an action flick.

A Quiet Place

The first time I saw the trailer for this movie was during Justice League and it frightened the mess out of me. The theater was so densely quiet and I was trying to figure out what was going on. I am not a horror film fan whatsoever. I mean I used to cry at Michael Jackson’s Thriller when I was a young child for crying out loud, that’s how much I don’t like scary stuff, but this movie’s plot is so terrifyingly interesting I want to see it.

What is it that they have to stay quiet about? What is going on? I like that the trailers are providing enough tantalizing imagery while keeping the secret of what the horrific villain, or villains will be. That’s great marketing because the only way I’m going to find out who it is their hiding from is if I go see it in the movies. Smart move, Paramount, smart move.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

This trailer had me immediately engaged due to its horrifying beginning. I mean that’s the worst way to wake up right? *shudder* Then as the trailer goes along it slightly veers away from that horror aspect that the trailer began with but it still had me engaged.

What this trailer conveyed to me was that the creators behind the Jurassic Park franchise have realized we, as viewers, don’t exactly care about a story. We want dinosaurs! The more and more dinosaurs you have the more enjoyable the film will be for everyone watching the movie in IMAX and this Jurassic World movie is no exception. They’re going to make sure that they have you watching the movie afraid at every turn, at every monstrous growl rumbling through the theater, and at every open dinosaur maw filled with racks of knife-sharp teeth about to eat someone. I appreciate that because that’s the only reason why I enjoyed the last one. It was a monster movie and I enjoyed every bit of the screaming humans and roaring dinosaurs rattling my brain in that IMAX theater andI know I’m going to have a great time again watching more screaming humans and more roaring dinosaurs in this sequel. 🙂

My Opinion of the ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Trailer

I was one of the millions of people who went and saw Jurassic World two years ago and for the most part, I enjoyed it. It was a fantastic monster movie and that’s what I was expecting when I went to see it. I remember after I finished seeing it the movie began to sink in and I realized how exactly terrible the film really was. The female lead was never rid of her high heels, even as she ran through mud and got chased by dinosaurs. The children in the movie weren’t as lovable as the original kids in the first Jurassic Park. Chris Pratt was okay, he never got on my nerves in the film, but overall it definitely was an unfortunate failed attempt at jolting the franchise back to life. Surprisingly, it made a whole lot of money despite its decency and ended up becoming the fourth highest-grossing film of all time.

Now it’s been two and a half years since Jurassic World came out and during yesterday night’s football game a trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom debuted. Here it is.

I saw this trailer and I have to say, it did not excite me at all. There were a whole bunch of clips showcasing baby dinosaurs, giant, ferocious dinosaurs, and everyone’s favorite T-rex but there just wasn’t anything that wowed me about this trailer.

Yes, it looks like the situation this time around is a little bleaker but it still looks like it will be another one of those sequels that couldn’t surpass its predecessor. I am glad to see that at least the lady is wearing more appropriate clothing in this film. That’s a welcome upgrade.

I wish I could say this trailer made me very excited to see this film next June but unfortunately it didn’t. Maybe once I see the trailer in IMAX I’ll have a very different opinion on it but I probably won’t.

Well, I thank you for reading my review of this trailer and I hope you have a fantastic day.
