1. Jurassic World cost Universal $150 million to make (or so I’ve read), which is relatively cheap for a big summer blockbuster, and every last penny is on the screen. Almost non-stop visual splendor (thanks to a seamless blend of ultra-realistic dinosaur effects and striking cinematography), which is more than I can say for recent productions like Godzilla and Skyfall, both of which had much larger budgets and far less to show for it.
2. I don’t know much about graphic design, but that logo up top is flat-out brilliant. The design, the colors, the textures, the font, the blue tracing inside the lettering. You could teach an entire course using this graphic alone.
4. If you’re a crankypants who is too sophisticated to acknowledge popular entertainment, why are you reading this?
1. The screenplay appears to have been written by an eight-year-old with ADHD.
2. This plot has more dropped threads than a yarn store after an earthquake.
3. All the 3D glasses in the world won’t give these cardboard cut-out characters depth.
4. And since when does an “embedded dinosaur tracking device” look like a vacuum tube from a Marshall guitar amp?
Overall: You really have to love dinosaurs or you will get absolutely nothing from this movie. I guess if you think Chris Pratt is hot…
