Jurassic World hits theaters tonight and I almost feel like a kid again. I'm a little excited to see what's in store for this franchises latest entry. I remember watching the original in theaters with my friends and thinking how amazing the special effects were at the time. Looking back they are still impressive, given the time but they're nowhere near where we are today and that excites me. I am a visual person. It goes with the art I guess but a great movie moves me with all kinds of feelings so I really am rooting for Jurassic World to deliver.
I read somewhere that this film is a direct sequel to the first film and cancels out II & III. It's really like a slap in the face but it seems to be trending with Terminator Genesys basically stepping in as a sequel to the first two films. A new Alien film with Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn returning to their respective roles. Presumable canceling the events of Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection. Seems like the film industry is desperate to me but I wouldn't mind seeing these films come to life. I grew up on Terminator and Aliens, the concept art, creativity and special effects are the reason I do what I do now.
