Re: No Jurassic Park IV

I concur with everything accept JP3 being better than the first. The first 
movie will always hold a special spot for really bringing dinosaurs to life on 
the big screen. That's something that can only happen once.

Short of that, JP3 was loads better than The Lost World: Jurassic Park. At 
least the dinosaurs in JP3 had a chance to act like real animals. TLW:JP was 
nothing more than a hokey monster movie (especially the completely unnecessary 
last half). 

I think the third sequel gets such a bad rap mostly for the - admittedly 
pointless - _T.rex_ vs. S_aegyptiacus_ scene. God forbid superhero _T.rex_ 
turns out not to be the greatest animal of all time.
