Someone’s Gotta Say It, So WTF….
I saw “Jurassic World” yesterday, and I can now precisely identify the loss of a little over two hours out of my life that I’m sure I’ll never get back again.
The most interesting aspect of the film for me was a visual hint as to what Ron “Opie” Howard would look like if he had breasts and long (actually, any) hair, perhaps his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard was an inspiration to Bruce Jenner to jump the fence? I suppose we’ll never know the answer to that but after she loses a portion of her clothing she’s a lot more entertaining to watch as she bounces around the set, emoting as she goes.
Anyway, the film is an extraordinarily financially successful exhibition of how little you need to have a story, especially a story about human interaction, if you’re able to endlessly fill the screen with CGI and animatronics to the point where after a scene is over you’re still too busy processing what you just saw to realize that there was no “there” there.
Me? I’m still busy trying to figure out who green-lit Colin Trevorrow to direct this, and who o.k.ed the casting of those two could just as well be animatronic kids who basically deaden every scene they’re in by “acting” instead of being in the moment, to understand this, re-watch the first Jurassic Park and have a look at what those kids did.
