For years Jurassic Park has been my favorite movie. I do believe I wrote a Movie Monday post about it as well (it may have been my very first one actually). When I heard the rumors about another Jurassic Park movie, I was beyond excited! Time went on and I started seeing tidbits on Facebook about the movie, and even saw their website. Being the JP nerd I am, I loved their interactive website. My favorite part of it was watching the 'live feed' cameras. I'm such a dork. When the previews started popping up, I became even more excited! Especially seeing Chris Pratt. Um, hello, he's hot. I'd only seen him in Guardians of the Galaxy (which I loved), but I knew he was a funny guy. Still, I wasn't sure if the movie would be taking a more comedic turn or what. Needless to say, Chris Pratt, although very funny, did amazing! It was definitely a more serious role, but not hardcore serious (does that make sense?). Lets move on to the dinosaurs featured in this film.
There were the common dinosaurs found in the other Jurassic Park movies, Pteranodon, Triceratops, Galimimus, and Velocoraptors. There were also brand new dinosaurs that we had never seen (at least I had never heard of) before. The first being the Mosasaurus:
Now there are a few individual aspects (you might even call them separate story lines) that all mash together once the Indominus Rex brings a reckoning on Jurassic World. One character in particular I want to touch on, is Claire. Claire Dearing is the senior asset manager for Jurassic World. She has a very 'corporate' attitude through the first part of the movie. She calls the animals assets instead of whatever type of dinosaur they are, and she seems to only care, or have the ability to communicate by talking about numbers, statistics, and itineraries. Once the Indominus Rex goes on a killing spree, her whole everything changes. Her nephews (who were supposed to be spending time with her. But she was too busy with work to be with them) were out and about in the park and when it all went down, she was unable to communicate with them and freaked. This was her snap to reality. I'm so happy that she started to understand the scope of what was happening, but my only problem with her in the movie is this:
Nerdy love to ya!
