Jurassic World

I was very excited to see this movie!  I still remember watching the first Jurassic Park movie when it was released back in 1993 – 22 years ago!  Wow, has it really been that long?!  While this one doesn’t compare with the original – not even close, it was at least entertaining – and better than the other sequels for sure!  And even though I liked all of the original actors in the series, it was fun to have Chris Pratt being the “hero” in this one.  The story has a new theme park being built on the site of the original Jurassic Park – with new attractions and even a newly “created” dinosaur – the Indominus Rex.  Don’t they know you shouldn’t do things like that?  Maybe they don’t know what else to do with the series, but it felt like they were trying to recreate the original movie a little bit with newer, improved computers and technology – and thinking they’d learned their lesson from the first time around, but, of course they hadn’t and aren’t as bright as the original creators of the park.  It did feel a little bit “dumbed down,” like many movies these days, but I still enjoyed it and liked being transported back in time – even if it was only 22 years back…
