The third movie tried to cram in the bits from the original novel that didn't make it into the first movie. Except the bit where they're all in the raptor nest; I liked that bit.

Hiding in the truck from the compys is from the climax of the first book—one of the characters does it after being ambushed by raptors while trying to restart the generator. The aviary is also from the book, but there is little resemblance between the two versions. The InGen lab and the conversation about prions is from the second book, though the characters never face the raptors in the lab proper in the book version. Dealing with the raptors up-close and being interrupted by the military was also from the first book, though in that case, the encounter was in the raptor nest.

I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.

Speaking of which, in novels, both first and second, people actually manage to kill several velociraptors.

Wow, I barely remember the books. I should give them a once-over sometime soon.

And, honestly, I liked Grant's dream in Jurassic Park III. I mean, I didn't love it, I didn't think it was a highlight of the movie or anything like that, but when I saw it I smiled. It's kind of a... humanizing moment for the guy, and that's something I appreciate in pretty much every character. And even if it had been terrible, it literally lasts less than a second. There's no way in hell I'm going to write off a whole movie (with dinosaurs!) for that.

Okay, not for a fun question: what dinosaur / pterosaur / whatever species do you want to see in the new one?

I'm hoping the climax will feature an army of dinosaurs against an army of humans led by two ninjas, one of them a technomage

I don't see why people think feathered raptors would be uncool. Have them flying around, so they'll be twice as dangerous! It would be plausible if they were giant mutated Rahonavis or Microraptor.

Bonus points if those were to be genetically engineered by the Big Bad, have lasers attached and deliberately being modelled after angels.

Raptors couldn't fly... or has science marched on?

Technically, you've already got them. The "velociraptors" in the movies are essentially Utahraptors.

On that note, I really want actual velociraptors already.

D'oh, you are right, I snagged the wrong pic.

Deinonychus

Velociraptor

Sorry for the mixup, but still, I want to see a real Velociraptor in one of these movies.

[up] This is one of the cases I approve Artistic License wholeheartedly; first of all, flim!velociraptors looked far scarier and giving them feathers would make them look sillier, and second, velociraptor sounds cooler and more sinister.

I wholeheartedly disagree - I doubt having feathers would make a whirling mob of bloodthirsty fangs any less scary. In fact, given the right environment (like, say, a jungle) it would make them even moreso - particularly with their smaller size and easier connection to birds you could make a large group of them seem much more daunting.

After all, The Birds is pretty scary when it wanted to be.
