Wow. Just wow. When I began seeing posts about how CGI is ruining movies and such, I was a little worried about seeing Jurassic World. Would it live up to the first one? Would the storyline be epic or just a bunch of explosions and CGI effects? Then I took a step back from those opinions and smiled. When I go to movie, I just go to enjoy them and that’s what Luke and I did. We went to the premiere for Jurassic World at a theater near us last night and sat down. And enjoyed it. Actually, that’s an understatement. Jurassic World blew our socks off!
1. Effects. I thought the CGI was amazing. We didn’t see it in IMAX 3D (yet) or anything, but I definitely think they did a great job creating a realistic effect to the dinosaurs. We did see the movie in High def 4K (I assume that’s good, I know nothing about screens). Of course, it would’ve been really cool to see them use some animatronics. That worked for the first movie, so imagine what that could’ve looked like NOW so many years later!
2. Acting. I saw a post complaining about the lack of women in Jurassic World. While the person they are talking about in the article is definitely dumb for saying that Jurassic World passes the Bechdel test because “the raptors are female”, women still get some kick ass parts in the new movie.
The kids were not annoying. Definitely a PLUS over the first movie. The kids in Jurassic Park are so annoying, I almost want them to get eaten by dinosaurs (harsh…sorry). The kids in Jurassic World are easier to connect to (in my opinion. Maybe they will annoy you? But I liked them!).
3. Chris Pratt. Need I say more? Sigh.
Conclusion: Go see it. It was amazing! Luke and I are already trying to find time to get to the IMAX to see Jurassic World in 3D.
