‘Jurassic World’ Is Hardly Moving At A Dinosaur’s Pace

 

Remakes of older movies are the trend of late. In most cases they do not measure up, simply because they fail to capture the spirit of the original movie. Jurassic World does not have that problem because the original director, Steven Spielberg, is back on the set.

Where Jurassic World goes right is being able to keep some of basic themes of the original while maximizing the use of modern CGI technology. The dinosaurs are bigger than ever, yet they do not smother the storyline in the process. That is why the movie is set to reach $1 billion at a record pace.

For Spielberg to worry about the competition, in this case Ted 2, the story of an adolescent stuffed animal that is trying to prove that “teddy bears are people too,” is laughable stated Brian Torchin. The biggest problem with any comedy movie is that everybody’s tastes are different in what makes us laugh. But drama is drama, and romping through a dinosaur park still appeals to the adventuresome side of young and old.

The only hope for Ted 2 is that the pool of people who have not seen Jurassic World is drained. Ted 2 may end up like a lot of sequels – overdone and lacking in original content. Jurassic World is better than Jurassic Park because is uses the same basic elements, only with greater effect. It took actor B.D. Wong a while to realize that, but he is back.
