Reviewing movies I haven't seen:

jwz: So the new Jurassic Park is set in the present day, two decades after the first movie?
kingfish: Yes.
jwz: And the outside world knows about it, this genetic tech isn't secret or anything?
kingfish: Right.
jwz: So the outside world is full of people with feathers, night vision chibi eyes, esoteric genitalia?
kingfish: No, not so much.
jwz: Everyone has a tiny pet dinosaur, at least?
kingfish: Nope.
jwz: Miniature giraffes?
kingfish: Nope.
jwz: They have developed and marketed a breed of cats who aren't dicks?
kingfish: Not even that.
jwz: I'm sorry, without people with feathers, there's no way I can take this movie seriously.

Previously, previously, previously, previously.

    The killer was "Friendly Cats."

    If reasonable people don't stand up for hard science fiction, it's all magic wands and invisibility cloaks.

      I may be missing something here, but surely you mean high fantasy and not hard science fiction.

    To be fair, they probably don't show China in the new movie; that seems like the nation that would fast-track feather technology to its citizens.

    Jamie, if there's one thing I, one Herbert Derp of The Internet, ever ask you to do, it's take the following bet:

    The. Finale. Is. Worth. Seeing.

    (So obviously there's plenty of ridiculous build up to it and a general bypass of the imagination with ill-thought-through plot setup, sure. Beyond that, it has a portion of spectacle on a par with Fury Road for 'Am I seeing this on the cinema screen?!?')

      In digitally colorized photos, why is the shirt or jacket always blue?

      • billw says:

        Why are lizards green, flames orange and the sky blue? The jacket matches my Harris tweed, my rarely worn, Sunday-go-to-meeting best. Also, true to barefoot and beltless hippie creed, my only formal wear.

    Pretty sure I saw Esoteric Genitalia on the Robot Heart bus last year.
