Jurassic World (SPOILERS)

After the long wait and the anticipated hype I managed to go and see Jurassic World at the weekend and I'm so glad that I did. It's no secret that as a kid Jurassic park was on my list of favourite films and, I have to say, they didn't disappoint. I was never really a girly girl so whilst others raved on and on about chick flicks and princesses, I went on about dinosaur films and creature features. To this day I still visit my gran weekly so we can watch some bad horror films and it's not a way of spending my time that I regret. 

Flashback to last November when I first saw the trailer, I even blogged about it (here), I mentioned a the fact that I was excited to spot the connections between the original films and the latest one. It was based on the same island and the main characters even visited the old site when they were hiding from the D-Rex (indominous rex), one of the original scientists appeared, and a guy even wore one of the old merch shirts. As a side note, my dad noticeably flinches when I say 'merch' rather than merchandise, it's fairly amusing! 

The trained raptors were fascinating, the writers gave them a very positive image this time. Though, I have to say that I wasn't shocked when they switched their loyalties to the part raptor d-rex. The revelation that the dinosaur was part raptor was incredibly obvious, it was something that I had guessed when it was first spotted in the film. The idea of a dinosaur so big - with the mental capabilities of a raptor was terrifying but, hey, the d-rex was eaten at the end of the film so it all worked out for the best.

To be honest, I was quite worried about how they were going to produce the film but it exceeded expectations and I absolutely LOVED the film. I geeked out the whole time I was watching it and I swooned over Chris Pratt - why not? Anyway, the thing I probably love the most about the film was the epic dinosaur battle at the end - the d-rex fought the t-rex, the raptors and the jurassic croc and it was awesome. I'm getting excited about the film all over again as I type this so please excuse the slightly up and down nature of this post. 

Well, I've geeked out enough for one day, thanks for reading this post. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the film if you have a spare moment to comment.
