ONLY READ IF YOU HAVE VISITED JURASSIC WORLD (SPOILERS BELOW)

THIS WEEKEND A SPECIAL MOVIE, FULL OF NOSTALGIA AND DINOSAURS, RELEASED IN THEATERS, AND EVEN BROKE BOX-OFFICE HISTORY.

I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF VISITING "JURASSIC WORLD" TWICE, BUT A QUESTION DAWNED ON ME AND HAD MYSELF WONDERING...

WHY DIDN'T THE PARENTS GO WITH THEIR CHILDREN?


IN THE MOVIE, THE PARK HAS BEEN OPEN FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW, BUT STILL, WHY WOULD THE PARENTS NOT GO EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC OF SEEING REAL-LIFE DINOSAURS WITH THEIR OWN CHILDREN? WHAT A WONDERFUL TRIP THAT WOULD BE TO ENJOY TOGETHER, RIGHT?

I KNOW SEVERAL OBVIOUS ANSWERS COME TO MIND.

IT WAS TO SPEND TIME WITH THEIR DISTANT AUNT, RIGHT?

-- OR -- MAYBE THEY COULD ONLY AFFORD TWO TICKETS, POSSIBLY?


THE ANSWER WAS THERE ALL ALONG.

REMEMBER THE SCENE WHERE THE BROTHERS TALK ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THEIR PARENTS ARE GETTING A DIVORCE? AND ALSO, THE PART WHERE THE MOTHER CALLS THE BOYS TO CHECK-IN ON THEM?

WELL, THAT IS IT EXACTLY.

LET ME EXPLAIN.

WITH HINTS THROUGHOUT THE MOVIE, IT'S ALL THERE.

THE PARENTS ARE GETTING A DIVORCE, WHICH IS HINTED IN THE BEGINNING OF THE MOVIE (AIRPORT SCENE) WHEN THE FATHER TALKS ABOUT THEIR FAILED LAST BREAKFAST TOGETHER. ALSO (PARK SCENE) WHEN THE BOYS DISCUSS THE SEPARATE MAIL FROM LAWYERS.

THE SCENE WHERE THE MOTHER CALLS THE BOYS, SHE IS OUTSIDE OF A MEETING. AT FIRST, I THOUGHT SHE WAS MAKING A PERSONAL CALL FROM HER WORK. BUT AFTER MY SECOND SEEING, I REALIZED SHE WAS WITH LAWYERS DISCUSSING/FINALIZING THE DIVORCE PAPERWORK.

THE WEEK OF FINALIZING THE DIVORCE, THE PARENTS WANTED THEIR KIDS TO NOT HAVE TO SEE WHAT WAS TAKING PLACE, SO WHAT BETTER PLACE TO SEND THEIR KIDS TO? JURASSIC WORLD, EXACTLY. I MEAN THEIR YOUNGEST DOES HAVE A PASSION FOR DINOSAURS, CLEARLY NOTED IN THE MOVIE.

-- ALSO --

AUNT CLAIRE HASN'T BEEN AROUND THEIR CHILDREN IN QUITE SOME TIME, ACCORDING TO HER CONVERSATION WITH THE BOYS. SO NOT HAVING TO SPOIL ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING WHILE THE BOYS ARE GONE, THE PARENTS CAN TELL THEIR KIDS THEY ARE GOING TO JURASSIC WORLD NOT ONLY TO HAVE FUN BUT ALSO TO SPEND TIME WITH THEIR AUNT.

THE PERFECT CONCLUSION

ONCE I REALIZED IT, IT GAVE THE MOVIE MORE DEPTH AND THE WRITING MORE STYLE. THE WRITERS OF THE FILM DIDN'T JUST SCRIPT IN TWO KIDS TO GO THE PARK. THEY TIED IN A REAL-LIFE SITUATION AND DEALT WITH IT.

THE PARENTS NEEDED SOME ALONE TIME FROM THEIR CHILDREN TO DEAL WITH THEIR SITUATION, AND THEREFORE DECIDED TO SEND THEM TO THE EPIC LAND OF DOCTOR JOHN HAMMOND'S DREAM-COME-TRUE WHICH IS WHERE AUNT CLAIRE WORKS.

THOUGH THE REALITY OF THAT CAN BE A LITTLE SAD, THERE IS COURAGE AND HOPE FOUND LATER IN THE MOVIE DEALING WITH THIS ISSUE.

REMEMBER THE SCENE TOWARDS THE END, AUNT CLAIRE IS IN THE VEHICLE WITH THE BOYS IN THE BACK-END?

THE BROTHERS DIDN'T OPENLY SAY "DIVORCE" BUT THEY DID TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT NO MATTER WHERE THEY GO OR WHAT HAPPENS, THEY WILL BE THERE FOR EACH OTHER. SURE, THEY COULD HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE RAPTORS ABOUT TO ATTACK, BUT THINK A LITTLE DEEPER FROM THE BEGINNING. IN THAT MOMENT, THE BROTHERS DECIDED THAT NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THEY GET HOME, THE TWO WILL ALWAYS BE BROTHERS... NO MATTER WHAT.

THE BROTHERS GOING THROUGH THE CONFLICT AT THE ISLAND BROUGHT THEM CLOSER TOGETHER, SO, WHEN THEY DO GO HOME, NO MATTER WHAT THEY FACE, THEY HAVE EACH OTHERS' BACKS.

THANK YOU FOR READING MY THEORY ON "JURASSIC WORLD".

WHAT DO YOU THINK? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS! DID YOU LOVE VISITING THE WORLD TOO?

I LOVED THE MOVIE! CAN'T WAIT TO BUY IT ON BLU-RAY!

THE MUSICAL SCORE STILL CONTINUES TO MAKE MY EARS SMILE! WHAT A WONDERFUL TIE-IN OF THE ORIGINAL THEME SONG WITH THE NEW SCORE.

THANKS AGAIN, AND BE SURE TO SHARE IF YOU LIKE IT!
