It That A Brachiosaurus In Your Pocket...

I know some of you have proven yourselves superior fans to me and my weak ass and already seen Jurassic World since it dropped hot last night - I got around to buying my tickets late and in order to see it on an IMAX screen I had to put off my viewing until Sunday and yadda yadda I am pathetic incarnate, stone me to death as soon as humanly possible. Or feel free to tell me your (non-spoilery please) thoughts and impressions in the comments here though, I welcome them. More than stones, actually. And have a dino-riffic weekend!

Spoiler free plot...Mess with dino DNA, create a monster, have to deal with it. I thoroughly enjoyed it!!

I thought it was "fine." It didn't blow me away. As they say, for people who like that sort of thing, that's the sort of thing you'll like.

Chris Pratt looks good with a tan. He would have looked better with no shirt, at least for one scene.

Bryce Dallas Howard is all bangs and nepotism. And what woman who's not going off for a Mormon prayer retreat would ever wear an all-white suit like that at all?

Vincent D'Onofrio is back to phoning it in as Standard Bad Guy. He was so much better in Daredevil.

I had a good time but thought the script got worse as it went along. Pratt is hot, though I think they put some type o'hair-thing on his head. I have a hawk's eye for that. He still looks good and makes a good action hero. He's a bit too stoic throughout which kind of washes him out character wise but he's a solid enough actor to push on. Pratt on the chopper racing with the raptors is just movie goers heaven. Howard is one of the stupidest people I've seen in a movie in a while. If her idiocy was played for laughs she might be more palatable. Instead she comes off as an insulting cliché of the most ridiculous damsel in distress.

His butt did look fine in those pants. Yum

They caked Pratt with so much make-up and mascara it's difficult to tell it's him in some shots. People run in the muddy jungle in high-heels, never get their all white ensemble dirty and wild dinosaurs (as opposed to domesticated ones) change their allegiance at the drop of hat (?!).

It gets really boring at some points and I still didn't understand who were the bad guys at the end.

Oh and night falls from one shot to the next... in a hard cut, with no character ever acknowledging some time has passed.

But the free-for-all at the end still gives you goosebumps, you can't help it.

It does not get boring anywhere at all.
It's great, look forward to it.

Here's my review of it:

Most fun I've had at the movies in a while. I think it more than makes up for the disappointing sequels.
