Universal has redeemed themselves for Jurassic Park 2 and 3. :U
Spoiler

That aside, I can't help but applaud the filmmakers for making such a good balance of CGI and practical effects. I don't mind CGI if done properly enough to blend both the live-action elements and the fake elements together seamlessly in a way that it's hard to tell what's real and what's not. That is the artistry of filmmaking I feel gets half-assed in a lot of movies and it shows very obviously. Despite the atrocities of Jurassic Park 2 and 3, the film series as a whole has done a pretty good job of not overusing CGI unlike a lot of films out there nowadays. So good job, Universal.

Overall, if you like the first Jurassic Park movie, you'll like Jurassic World just as much.

The rest of the world agrees, with JW being the biggest opening in history. http://www.theguardi...-5118m-on-debut

domestic receipts also came in well over expectations, with Universal's estimates of $100 million being more than doubled for the 2nd largest American debut of all time (in between Avengers 1 and Avengers 2, because Disney).

Didn't get a chance to watch it this weekend so I'll be hitting the theaters next weekend.

Saw it today, full of many issues that I could rant about all day, especially the ending....

 

But I still enjoyed it and recommend it. Should have been made instead of Jurassic Park 3 (titles makes no sense, not a park, NOT A PARK).

I'd call the story a good fanfic attempt of the books.

caught it this weekend. theater was still super crowded and I think the movie is on track to be the fastest one to ever break $1 billion (might've already done it, this was a few days ago).

Legs look funky and the arms are disproportionate, but otherwise a pretty good costume. (Universal Studios Hollywood)



The one in Orlando has a much better setup. (Universal's Islands of Adventure)

Just noticed the raptor in Orlando doesn't blink but the one in Hollywood does. :U Wonder if that means the Orlando raptor is an older suit or just a different model.

So while I was waiting in the Christchurch domestic terminal on route to Bali I came across this machine:

Stack_N_Grab.jpg

 

I sunk $1 NZD into it and won the block game first try, which gave me super crane strength and 900 attempts at getting a prize. I got this bad boy:

I believe it is the Indominus Rex and it is 36cm in size.

 

But yeah, a pretty cool toy, can hang out with my other crane spoils including Mew, Dreamworld Tiger, Gizmo, Micky Mouse and Crash Bandicoot haha.

Eyes are supposed to be red, but other than that, it's a rather well-done unlicensed plush of Indominus Rex. Nice catch.

Strangely enough, it is an official licensed toy @_@

You actually won something good from one of those machines?  I'm impressed.
