RE: Sauropod necks and rearing nonrelated JP gimmicks (rant!)
Yeah, I know they are just movie monsters, and I should just get over
it. But I don't think we should let the movie-makers get off so easily
such excuses (especially if they continue to do it). If there had been
more complaints about the first Jurassic Park, maybe we wouldn't have had
that scene in JP3 with the Spinosaur getting its neck chomped on with no
apparent ill effect.
I have the VHS of Jurassic Park, but I will not purchase JP3. Not
my little protest will have any effect, but it makes me feel better. I
guess we can always hope JP4 will have fewer of these kinds of bloopers.
Life goes on,
I suppose you are kinda right. The JP3 Spinosaurus (even at its massive
size, it seems a poor match for the T.rex) was stuffed with so many gimmicks
just to make it a badass (and to survive the fight in the first place), it
became stale and how do you put it? The entire idea *Chao Sheng (*Went
Putrid). One or two gimmicks is fine here and there, but it was painfully
obvious that the entire movie was packed to the brim with marketing gimmicks
with virtually every dinosaur in a vain attempt to generate public interest
in supposedly making the entire movie "darker" and "more serious", but I
think that was the very effect the movie lacked. But then again, what choice
did they have? The main problem with JP sequels is that they have to live in
the shadow of the first movie, and to make the other movies worth watching,
they had to resort to more and more stuff (more Tyrannosaurs in TLW,
overdone dinos in JP3) till people don't buy it anymore. Okay, rant over.
On the other hand, what the heck was that dino at the done-in-poor-taste
dung scene? A Ceratosaurus? A Carnotaurus? It looked like some kind of
stange Tyrannosaurid with a horn to me.
