Truth be told, I did not have any intention of liking "Jurassic World" ever since watching the trailers online. Sure, Chris Pratt is in it, and I adored him in Guardians of the Galaxy, but yet another dinosaur movie? The T-Rex in the earlier 3 films were not enough? "Money-churner", much?
But I fell off my deluded pedestal of self-importance (knowing full well as I watched it illegally online I had no right to be cine-snub), and ended up being thoroughly entertained, the first time watching it on a grubby theatre recording - complete with "walking heads" and shitty spacial echo audio (yes, that bootleg scene is alive and thriving till, people), and the second time in a more robust streaming video (still a "bootleg", I admit…) - so much so I was kicking myself for not watching it in the darkened cinema with a huge silver screen (#iSwear) - because a film like Jurassic World DEMANDS to be viewed as such!
In a cruel twist of fates, I had initially entertained physically going to a cinema to watch this, but as I mentioned when I started, "I did not have any intention of liking "Jurassic World"" - I'd actually stopped myself from heading out the door ...
Self-fulfilling prophecies aside, I have since embraced the "cheese level" of such genre films, and instead of questioning the "believability" of said genre films (it's a fictional fun film, for pete's sake!), I'd look forward to be entertained, hopefully without leaving my brains at the door!
So when Raptors run alongside former-prey-humans hunting for designed-dinos in the jungle at night, it becomes an awesome exciting scene LOL … AND this scene has become the equivalent of the by-now-classic "footstep tremor ripple on cup of water" methinks! :)
Director Colin Trevorrow has since been announced to helm upcoming Star Wars Episode IX (2019), so dude probably did something right!
