Worth Seeing For The Pratt Alone

At the beginning of the story, Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) the  corporate Manager of super theme park " Jurassic World" shares with her Billionaire Boss Mr Masrani ( Irrfan Khan) just why the company has bred a super aggressive hybrid dinosaur called the Indominus Rex 
" kids are bored with ordinary dinosaurs " she explains in her power suit." They want something more"
She could have been quoting the modern day movie going audience, for after two decades of CGI , ordinary dinosaurs seem very old hat indeed!
And so the director and writers of Jurassic World have thrown everything but the kitchen sink at the audience. 24 thousand visitors are  attacked by a flock of pterosaurs along main street. a whale sized sea dinosaur leaps out of a sea lagoon to bolt down a great white shark, and a swat team of dino killers are massacred in a scene reminiscent of Aliens. 
We have the obligatory two kids in peril, a feisty female who outruns a T rex WITH HIGH HEELS ON and a sneering baddie ( Vincent D'Onofrio ) who gets his arm bitten off by a semi trained raptor
Yes...its all too much!
But...and there is a BIG  but here ," Jurassic World" is just about saved by it's leading man, Chris Pratt. The slightly swaggering, cute as a button, strapping hunk of dino manhood, Pratt, dominates the action and provides the film with some much needed humour and rather good acting, especially in his scenes with Dallas Howard who he has some excellent on screen chemistry with.
It doesn't hurt that he's bloody lovely to look at either!

  1. Could they just put together the clips with Chris Pratt in them and market that instead of the whole dreadful mess around it?

  5. Bryce Dallas Howard's middle name is Dallas because Ron Howard and his wife, I think her name is Cheryl, gave all their kids the middle names of the places where they were conceived. I've never seen a Jurassic Park movie. Favorite Young Man saw the first one years ago on VCR at a friend's house. He said it wasn't that good. I knew if he didn't like it that I shouldn't bother with it.

    Love,
    Janie

  10. My heart beat a little faster when Chris Pratt appeared on screen, esp. with the 'raptors. Sigh, sigh, sigh....

  11. It's copped a lot of criticism but I loved this movie. Possibly because I'm a little obsessed with the whole series. And I just like movies that feature big dinosaur fights. And I figure if you're going to see a movie about genetically modified dinosaurs you really shouldn't be looking for a realistic or subtle storyline... Also yes. Chris Pratt is incredibly hot :)

  12. He doesn't have enough pull to draw ME to see it, J.G. Now it would be a different if it featured Hugh Jackman (bearded), Bradley Cooper (bearded), Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon, Olympia Dukakis, Annette Bening, Laura Linney and Bette Midler - then I probably WOULD go!

  13. I can see why people find Chris Pratt attractive, but he's just a bit too 'pretty' for me. I like men to be a little rougher around the edges!

  14. I thought the digitized dinosaurs were the best actors in the movie. At least they didn't have to speak those lines that the poor actors were given.

  15. Seriously John, where did the T Rex get the high heels?

  16. I don't know why Chris doesn't get incredibly jealous, John. Enough sighing!
