Hello everyone! 🙂
Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!
After seeing the original ‘Jurassic Park’ film trilogy on Prime Video, I’ve finally seen the latest ‘Jurassic World’ film trilogy. I saw the first two films on Prime Video and the third one recently at the cinema. I have found these latest dinosaur movies very enjoyable and very intriguing to check out. 🙂
The first ‘Jurassic World’ film was released in 2015. The film was directed by Colin Trevorrow, who you may know for being the initial director and contributor to the story for the ‘Star Wars’ film ‘The Rise of Skywalker’. I found ‘Jurassic World’ a very enjoyable, very engaging and pretty intense film. 🙂
The film takes place 22 years after the events of the first ‘Jurassic Park’ film. There’s a brand-new successful theme park filled with cloned dinosaurs called Jurassic World. John Hammond’s dream of a theme park containing dinosaurs has come into fruition. But as is the case, trouble is on the rise. 😐
Jurassic World plunges into chaos when a transgenic dinosaur escapes from its enclosure and goes on a rampage. I didn’t find the new dinosaur called the Indominus Rex that impressive, and it’s just as well it got killed off from the fight it had with the Tyrannosaurus Rex, raptors and the Mosasaurus.
The cast includes Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ films) as Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard (Gwen Stacy in ‘Spider-Man 3’) as Claire Dearing. There’s also Vincent D’Onofrio as the film’s villain Vic Hoskins, Ty Simpkins as Gray and Nick Robinson as Zach. 😀
Gray and Zach are Claire’s nephews. There’s Omay Sy as Barry Sembène, B. D. Wong as Dr. Henry Wu (who was in the first ‘Jurassic Park’ film), Irrfan Khan (who was in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’) as Simon Masrani, Jake Johnson (who was in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’) as Lowery Cruthers. 🙂
The second ‘Jurassic World’ film called ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ was released in 2018. It was directed by J. A. Bayona. Colin Trevorrow returned to co-write the film and Steven Spielberg is the executive producer on all three ‘Jurassic World’ movies. I did enjoy ‘Fallen Kingdom’ when I saw it. 🙂
There are tense moments throughout the film, but I found the ending dodgy, since the rights of dinosaurs to live on Earth were debated throughout. I’m against dinosaurs co-existing with humans, especially when some of them are carnivores. Also, the dinosaurs were genetically engineered here.
The film has Chris Pratt as Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing return to the island of Isla Nublar where they try to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. However, a mercenary team has the dinosaurs brought over to the US mainland instead. 😐
The humans in some of these ‘Jurassic Park’ films can be stupid, power-hungry and money-hungry, especially as they don’t consider the dangers of selling dinosaurs to potential buyers. The film also includes B. D. Wong as Dr. Henry Wu and Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm from the first two films. 🙂
There’s also Rafe Spall as Eli Mills, Justice Smith as Franklin Webb, Daniella Pineda as Zia Rodriguez, James Cromwell as Sir Benjamin Lockwood, Toby Jones as Mr. Eversoll, Ted Levine as Ken Wheatley, Isabella Sermon as Maisie and Geraldine Chaplin as Iris, who is the Lockwood Estate housekeeper. 🙂
The third, final and latest film in the ‘Jurassic World’ trilogy is called ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’. I’ve seen this film twice at the cinema, both in Newcastle and Cardiff. This film has received a lot of criticism, but I found it enjoyable, especially when combining original and new casts of characters. 🙂
Colin Trevorrow directs this final film in the ‘Jurassic World’ trilogy. Set four years after the events of ‘Fallen Kingdom’, the dinosaurs are living among humans around the world in the film. Owen and Claire also embark on a mission to save their adopted daughter Maisie, as she gets kidnapped here.
There’s also the return of Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler and Ian Malcolm who attempt to expose a conspiracy by the genomics corporation called Biosyn. It was nice to see Owen and Claire meeting up with Alan, Ellie and Ian in the film, especially when they work together to escape the feral dinosaurs.
Chris Pratt returns as Owen Grady as well as Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire, Sam Neill as Alan, Lauren Dern as Ellie and Jeff Goldblum as Ian. There’s also DeWanda Wise as Kayla Watts and Mamoudou Athie as Ramsay. Campbell Scott (who was in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ films) plays the film’s villain.
No disrespect to Campbell Scott, but I found him unintentionally funny as the film’s villain, especially when he’s beating up a chair. 😀 There’s also Isabella Sermon as Maisie, B. D. Wong as Dr. Henry Wu, Omay Sy as Barry Sembène, Justice Smith as Franklin Webb, Daniella Pineda as Dr. Zia Rodriguez, Scott Haze as Rainn Delacourt and Dichen Lachman as Soyona Santos,
The ‘Jurassic World’ film trilogy has been enjoyable as the original ‘Jurassic Park’ film trilogy. I’m glad I’ve been able to see these films, especially with ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ currently at the cinemas. This seems to be ‘the final end’ of the ‘Jurassic Park’ films, but I’m guessing it’s never really over. 😀
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
