The Gang of Five
Happy New Year, everyone!  Much to the relief of many, 2021 has finally come to a close and 2022 has arrived.  With a new year comes not only hopes for the future, but also new projects on the forum.

First, we now have a new phase to the forum’s character showcase.  We have decided that 2022 will be a transition year from notable characters to general discussion of the LBT films.  From the legendary original film, to the introduction of Chomper in LBT 2, to the mysterious rainbowfaces in the seventh film, they will all be getting a showcase this year.  Details can be found here .

Secondly, we are seeking feedback on the Fanfiction Prompt challenge before it starts back up in February.  If you have any feedback that you would like to give then please do in this topic.

We hope that the new year brings you all happiness and joy!  We look forward to seeing what the forum community comes up with over the coming year. :)

This is what Guido means according to Google "a man regarded as vain, aggressively masculine, and socially unsophisticated."

I don't know how I didn't notice this one until now. Doofah and another Yellow Belly gained four toes.

Is it bad to say that the CG in the Walking with Dinosaurs movie looks a lot better than the CG in these films?

Do you think its laziness? That artists and animators no longer put the attention to detail in anymore? Or is it money based, the movie companies want to save money by not spending more on detailed designs and blending with real world environments? Or is there another factor?
I honestly don't know. It could be a combination of all of those things.

And please don't use the argument that the CGI would be better if there was more animatronics. I really hate that argument. CGI should be able to stand on it's own. You don't need a bunch of practical effects to make it better despite what those CG hating critics on the internet will tell you. But that being said the CGI in the JW films isn't bad or atrocious. It just isn't up to the standards that ILM have set in the past. Do you remember in the JP trilogy how ILM and Stan Winston were always trying to raise the bar for their Dinosaur effects well not in this trilogy. Besides the addition of more animatronics in Fallen Kingdom the effects look the exact same in these films without any attempt to raise the bar.

It wasn't only the sequels that had animation errors. The oringial film had it's fair share of errors. Like this one where the sky changes in the same shot.

Man this shot of Rexy standing in front of the theater looks really bad. These movies have very high budgets and they still can't make 100% photo realistic CG Dinosaurs. This would have been acceptable in the 90's but were in the 2020's. Come on ILM. It is possible that this shot isn't finished yet but I doubt it.

So I finally got around to watch this show and.....oh boy. x(cera I hated it. Look if you like this show that's great but personally I just can't. Most of the characters are really annoying stereotypes, they manage to survive impossible situations, the writing is really bad, and the worst part for me is it's canon to the franchise. Thanks a lot Trevorrow. I honestly can't decide if it's just as bad or worse than Fallen Kingdom. It had a lot of potential but they messed it up really bad for me. I think it would have been a little better if it wasn't a kids show.

It's the green tongue siblings. Yes I know Ducky and Spike aren't genetically siblings but Ducky calls Spike her big brother multiple times.

While I did like Jurassic World when I first saw it 6 years ago I also felt pretty underwhelmed. I was especially disappointed that the Indominus Rex didn't really do a whole lot. Hasbro's god awful merchandise didn't help either. While I originally liked Fallen Kingdom more when I first saw it I still felt underwhelmed. I have a feeling that Dominion is going to be the most underwhelming one of them all.

Honestly the Jurassic World films are probably the most underwhelming things I have ever seen. I don't hate them because their bad, which they are, but because their just such a let down.

I at least hope that Michael Giacchino's score is better this time and isn't bland and forgettable like it was in Fallen Kingdom.

The JW theme is pretty good, even iconic, but nost of his other scores are nothing special.
True but I think he still had a lot of bangers in Jurassic World like Chasing the Dragons and Our Rex is Bigger Than yours and his reprises of the classic themes are good too but yeah their isn't anything special from him. I want John Williams back. Or heck how bout bring Don Davis back. He had some great music in Jurassic Park 3.

The first five minutes of Jurassic World:


https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=obqfbOUKSFg&vl=en

I have to say it illicited no emotion in me. I really feel this film will suffer because fans did not respond well to the T-Rex rampaging through San Diego in The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

I honestly felt watching this sneak peak, that the Jurassic Franchise should have ended with Jurassic Park III. This franchise feels like what Bilbo Baggins says in The Fellowship of the Ring film, “I feel thin, like too little butter spread over too much bread.”
This 5mins of footage makes me hope this is the end of the Jurassic films.

The only exception, is I love Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. It captured the heart of Jurassic Park.
I am not looking forward to this film either. It looks like it's going to be worse than Fallen Kingdom. Also I am done with defending the inaccuracies in this franchise and oh boy this prologue has a lot like Putting Tyrannosaurus and Giganotosaurus together when they both lived at different places at completely different times. Also I'm sorry but the Giga design is hideous. Why couldn't they have used the Giga from JWE because that design was a lot better.

I think this error here kind of answers your question @Hammy and this time it isn't exclusive to the remaster.

For what it's worth, the remasters give us a little insight into how the films were animated. By messing up the illusion of life, we get to see some of the tricks used. The  are clearly their own layer, with the lids just being animated over them. And is Cera red underneath? Are the basic character shapes done in solid colors? It  I'm not an animator myself, so I'm not entirely sure why that would be a layer under her eye, but it'd be an interesting question to pose to the production teams.

We don't get a lot of behind the scenes info with the sequels, so I'll take what I can get, even if it's a silver lining on a storm cloud.
Very interesting thought there.
