Jurassic World

Postby oneputtlarry on Thu Jun 11, 2015 7:37 am

I had not planned on being first in line to see this film, but my son called and said he had VIP tickets to the premiere showing of the film last night. My wife and I said, "We're in!"
Awesome film! Far exceeded my expectations! Way to go Spielberg! Special effects, CGI stuff...phenomenal! Acting...terrific! I think if you're a Jurassic Park fan, you'll like it a lot...just my opinion.

I'd like to see it as well. I assume it would scare the hell out of Jackson, so this will be one we see on our own.

My wife was holding my hand tightly...not her kind of film, but an opportunity to see our son, his wife & our grandkids...lots of action...wife only broke three of my fingers! :-)
11 year old grandson and 13 yr old granddaughter loved the movie! It is an intense film, but very entertaining!

We're you mad when Neil Armstrong jumped you in line after you landed?

The film is doing pretty well at the box office...On Saturday, my golf buddy said his family had tickets to see JW at the Movie Grill Theatre where you can eat your dinner while watching the film...I suggested he finish his meal before the movie began. :-)

Jurassic World rakes in an estimated $204.5 million in it's opening weekend! ...not bad!
To swipe a line from "Independence Day"… Not bad at all!!!

I enjoyed it. It was entertaining and fun. I would have loved to be a 9 year old kid watching it. Parts of it would have scared the beegees out of me. I'm glad they brought the series back.

Chris Pratt has already signed on to be in the JW sequel!

My nephew recently ran a 1/2 iron Man triathlon in Florida. Chris Pratt was running in it. He was able to talk with him for a long time. Said he was super friendly and very talkative.

We took our kids to see this movie recently, and they enjoyed it. I was never a huge fan of the 'Jurassic' movies, but did find this to be pretty good entertainment - lots of action. Pratt was solid and is building a strong rep for action movies. If you have kids, it's worth seeing as a family.
