Malcolm's line about nature "selecting them for extinction" always irritated me, the dinosaurs died out because of a random space rock, nature didn't select shit!

Random space rocks are a thing that happens in nature. No different from surprise volcano eruptions, disease outbreaks, or the arrival of an invasive species that upsets the ecosystem.

The dinosaurs weren't equipped to handle it and couldn't adapt, so they died out. Other things in nature were better equipped to survive the circumstances that the universe thrust upon them, and so survived and grew to thrive.

[up] Ian is more afraid of the idea that humanity will cause their own extinction by their own stupidity. A stupidity that they could prevent. As he stated in the novel, humanity doesn't have the power to destroy the planet but they do have the power to save themselves.

Speaking of the novel, another reason given for why T Rex from the first novel didn't see was that it was very heavily raining.

Personally, I'm partial to the first novel's explanation that Rexy just has a weird defect due to her chimera genes.

Tyrannosaurs, as a whole, do not have movement-based vision. But Rexy, specifically, has movement-based vision.

Ok, science officially has gone too far when they give a T. Rex an adamantium skeleton.

Well, they already went too far when they created carnivorous dinosaurs anyway, so why stop there? tongue

On a more different topic, I'd love to see Hideo Kojima make a Jurassic Park game.

He shares Crichton's love for author filibuster and including a bunch of research.

If it means we get to fight a buff scientist possessed by Hammond's spirit inhabiting his cane, I'm game.

With the crazy things the movies are doing now, I wouldn't be surprised if we see a literal Hammond clone in the third movie.

Can't wait for them to be segregated to a prologue and epilogue entirely divorced from the main plot.

Also all clearly shot in the same day despite the scenes supposedly taking place weeks apart, but everyone is dressed the same, so it looks like a senate hearing has been going on non-stop for a month.

Those are not two different hearings. I swear to God I can't understand why people don't get that.

Its all the same scene.

We cut away from the scene once it sets the plot and we see the efforts to save the animals unfold.

And then at the end we go back to the scene and see how Malcolm closed his arguments while we're shown the consequences of the movie and and how his predictions came true.

Jurassic World is super cool to dunk on and I'm not sure why. I'd theorize that it's kids asserting themselves by mocking a series that was a hit with millennials in the nineties, but no, plenty of people in my godforsaken generation are super critical of it too. The movies are really no dumber than other popular blockbusters. In some ways they're smarter than they get credit for.

Some people say it's phenomenally stupid that Fallen Kingdom acts like it's a good thing that a bunch of dinosaurs have been set loose in the US, where they can wreak all sorts of havoc, but you gotta look at that shit through the eyes of a child. You don't want a bunch of cool animals to die. You're thrilled that dinosaurs are "back," that this is a world where you can go and see one. It's a conservationist message. I'm sure younger viewers see it that way.

The issue with Fallen Kingdom is not, "OH NO dinosaurs are free and NOW THEY WILL DESTROY THE WORLD AND DEVOUR ALL MANKIND AHHHHHHH!!!"

The movie wants that to be your takeaway. But that's not the problem.

The issue with Fallen Kingdom is that this tiny-ass, practically negligible sample size of dinosaurs, a completely unsustainable population sampling for each species, are now entering into an ecosystem they are entirely unfit for. Most of these animals should be re-extinct by week's end. There is not enough food in the Northern California wilderness to sustain a tyrannosaurus rex.

At least when it was Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna, you could imagine that InGen bred enough of various species to create a self-sustaining ecosystem. But Fallen Kingdom somehow decided it was a good idea to blow up all the dinosaurs and then try to make a dinosaur apocalypse happen.

And also some shit about terrorist ankylosaurs?

Well with the child letting the dinosaurs out, it makes sense from her perspective, not because she's a child, but because she herself is a clone.
