Re: Jurassic Park 4 Filming?

Am I the only one here who thought 3 far surpassed 2?  The aviary
sequence alone I'd been dying to see ever since they decided to leave
it out of the adaptation of the first book.  The characters were
almost likeable to the point where you weren't rooting for the
dinosaurs (unlike 2) and the Maniraptora were not defeated by
sub-adult gymnasts.

I think it's safe to say that 4, without Crichton's influence, will be
shockingly thin on plot but the special effects will be breathtaking.
I only hope they hire a good advisor on animal behaviour and listen to
