the value of jp

you are all forgeting one thing that JP did that no previous movie did
really well.  remember good old brontosaurus wallowing the swamp. well
thanks to JP few people believe that is how dinos lived.  JP took the
poor swamp bound beasts and literally transported them to the terrestrial
realm (just like the allegorical clip in the film where Brachiosaurus
moves out of the lake).  for that alone we should be grateful.  afterall,
can we really expect to revolutionize the public overnight?  don't forget
that the movie making business has to overcome its learned myths too.
