If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Do You Like Jurassic Wolrd Movie?
« on: June 10, 2015, 09:08:39 am »
We are glad to inform all of you that the Jurassic World movie is upcoming on 12 June. It is very horrible story written by Steven Spielberg and Mark protosevich. I think it will be fully entertainment story of dinosaur.

No doubt.

It will be a spectacle. The world didn't need another JURASSIC movie--what else is there to say here?--but in a thus-far lackluster summer movie season, I'll see it out of desperation for something to distract my eyeballs.

The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Well, I saw all the other ones, so might as well. It can't be worse than the second film, at any rate.

Besides, if I don't like it, I could just see chrome glory of Fury Road again as a palette cleanser.

We didn't need those two other awful sequels, either.  But that's Hollywood for you.  It is so rare for them to get an original idea that they must crib from pre-existing franchises and focus-grouping them to hell.

Not that I'm cynical or have given up completely on movies and TV because I'm incapable of liking things, or anything:whis:

What do you expect? Only the first Jurassic movie was any good. The "90% of everything is crap" rule definitely applies to Hollywood sequels.

I've seen all of them in theatres so my attitude is "why stop now?" I will say I hated the third more than the second one, though.

I wish this one's new magical hybrid dinosaur was Goldblum Rex. Just a T-Rex with the sunglasses and the .

I must be a seer as your report is pretty much exactly as I expected, so I'll give Jurassic World a pass.

I hate Jurassic Park and I haven't seen any of the others.
Still going to go see Jurassic World because Chris Pratt.

When I was a very wee girl, long before feminist issues were on my horizon,  I remember watching an old Tarzan movie and being disgusted by a woman going into the jungle in high heels then running and tripping. I played in the woods so I pretty well knew how stupid this was.
I love a good cheesy adventure movie as much as the next person, but. I was streaming this today and my 'count the hackneyed trope-o-meter' broke pretty quickly in.
But damn. There was the lead female protagonist running into the jungle in ...high heels. Running in front of a T-Rex...in high heels.

Seriously, nothing has changed in all these decades? Oh, and it was just plain bad - bad effects, bad script, bad acting and of course...those heels:eek:

As you pointed out, only the 1st one had that novelty factor and script to be a good classic adventure cheese fest.

Hell, Chris Pratt's character actually pointed out how impractical the heels were fairly early on in the film. She has no excuse by the time the t-rex comes out to still be wearing them.

Even ignoring the sexist cliches, it wasn't even that great of a creature feature, tbh; too predictable and far too much wasted potential. Still better than the old sequels, though.

Pratt as the alpha of a raptor gang? A+ reason to watch imo. :pop: :D:

My family practically tied me to a chair when I said I hadn't seen the first one; they insisted I had to watch it right then and there. (This was a while after it came out on video.)

I've only caught bits of the second one when it's been on cable, and don't go out of my way to watch any of them, so when my mother and I saw the trailer during Tomorrowland, I immediately turned to her and said "have fun, but I ain't seeing it."

She did mention the high heels, after she saw it.
