TGWTG's MikeJ just posted a pretty good video takedown of JPIII. And boy, does it bring back the memories... the terrible, terrible memories...

Then you want this show.

That being said, I would love to see that show be adapted into a cinematic feature. Just for the sheer ridiculousness of it all.

The first JP4 had dinosaurs with fingers, so guns / lasers might have been in it...

The thing about JP3 is it was at least focused. It didn't do much, but it at least did that well (except the Peter Pan part). It was a monster movie thriller that started with action and didn't bother with the "wow Dinosaurs" until about 3/4 of the way through. To me, that's a disappointment because the awe of Dinosaurs is what separates Jurassic Park from other monster movies. But the story at least did what it set out to do so I won't universally pan it (some like it better than Lost World).

Plus, it had the one non-annoying kid in any Jurassic Park movie.

^ For me, the wussification of the raptors totally invalidates the "eh, at least it's a solid monster movie" argument. Say what you like about The Lost World, at least its rexes knew to punish those who'd stolen its young.

^Agree. I liked it because it was JUST a basic monster movie, nothing more. Turn off your mind popcorn flick. Every once in a while you gotta have one of them.

I think I've blocked the Raptors from my memory, which helps give it a more favorable rating.

Watch the above-linked takedown, and it'll all come back... internet video reviews: the true revenge of the nerds.

This use of the raptors in JP3 was just really, really bad. You'd think at the end they'd be looking at one another going, "Hey, Gary? It it me or does this guy look kind of weird?"

"Yeah, he does, but he's talking like us so I dunno..."

"His voice sounds odd, though, kind of nasally and dry or something. Like he has no flesh on his snout.

"Yeah but he seems to know the language..."

"What?! His dialect and syntax is all over the place! He just asked us where he can find a good pizza place! There's no pizza places in these parts!"

"True. Screw this guy, he's not worth our time. Take the eggs and let's get out of here."

"I'm right with you man. Hey, by the way, when did we stop having one of us lead the pray away while two others ambushed the guy from the sides?"

"I dunno, just grab the damn eggs. This guy will kill himself sooner or later the way he looks and talks."

I think the raptors would say something more like...

"Shit, the movie ran out of money, we aren't getting paid anymore, let's go make scrambled eggs".

I watched JPIII last year for the first time in years. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I don't really think there's much between it and JPII.

I wouldn't mind a reboot closer to the book.
