I know a ton of you guys are impatient with the rate at which I write stories, and wish I'd write faster. And I'll admit, I have been a little slow. Mainly because I had to make sure I graduated school this year and didn't have to come back for a particular class...
But as I learned from some of the older XenoGirl stories: Haste makes Waste

My plans for this summer, are to pump out 1 or 2 more chapters of XenoGirl: Redux.
After that, I'll start working on my first story of the Grafters series. (A bit of a collab between me, general-sci, AraghenXD, BiscuitDude, SymbioteMaskLover.)
Hopefully I'll manage to complete it and by the end of the summer, and complete a few more XenoGirl: Redux Chapters and finish the first story arc.
I may also kick out a movie review or two. But these are just my hopes for the summer. Don't get pissy if I take too long to write. Having just graduated, I have a TON of other stuff on my plate. So PLEASE... be patient.

Jurassic-world-poster-mosasaurus by TheChitinousTeen

Bigger, Louder, More Teeth...

    The original Jurassic Park, will always be the best of the series. I think the makers of Jurassic World were well aware of that. But just because you can't top the original, doesn't mean you shouldn't try to, or that you can't make a good film. And kudos to Colin Trevorrow for giving his all, and delivering us the best sequel in the series yet. And it's the one Jurassic Park deserved, as it pretty much ignores the events of The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3. Both of which, I didn't entirely hate, but I'm willing to ignore them for the sake of this film. As a Jurassic Park fanboy, who read both of the books, saw all the films, and followed the development of this film online since it began, I can say that the final product that we've been delivered, is faithful to the original source material. 
I love the premise of this film, that it's 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park (in real life, it's also been 22 years since the first film came out) and the Theme Park that John Hammond dreamed about has finally become a reality. The other films and books never toyed with that idea. Which gives this film such a juicy and interesting premise. But I also feel like there's a bit of subtext in this film as well. The people in charge of the park talk about how people aren't "thrilled" by dinosaurs the same way anymore. That they've become so used to them and accustomed to them that they don't have the same feeling of awe that they did when they first saw them. I feel this resembles the way that audiences no longer are blown away by CGI in films the way that they were when Jurassic Park revolutionized the technology. And while this film relies mostly on CGI, unlike the original, (it's still great CGI) there is one scene that uses an animatronic dinosaur, and is actually a pretty touching moment. The puppet dinosaur breathing it's last quiet breath... I think it symbolizes the way that practical special effects are sadly becoming a dying art. The scene actually got tears to start welling up in my eyes. (Several moments did.)
I also love that this film almost feels like a sequel that's self aware. 
The new dinosaur created for this film, The Indominus Rex, is created because the attendants of the Park want things "Bigger, Louder, and with more teeth". And many of the people working at the Park make snarky comments about bigger not always being better. As if they know that doing things "bigger and better" will inevitably blow up in your face. Which is usually what happens with sequels.
One thing I loved in this film, is the way that they kept the dinosaurs hidden early in the film, but not for as long as the original did. Which felt like a nice throwback to classic "Spielbergian" build up from films like Jaws.
Jurassic World also manages to perfectly recreate the suspenseful and intense setpieces of the original film, that the other sequels were never able to execute as well.
But what about the characters? Well, Chris Pratt plays Owen. An ex-Navy, who's been working at Jurassic World and has been able to kinda train the Raptors. Mostly because they imprinted on him at birth. But it's a shaky relationship he has with them that will be tested throughout the course of the film. Almost as shaky a relationship as the one he has with Claire, played by Bryce Dallas Howard. An actress I've never cared for in anything I've seen her in before. Be it Spiderman 3 or Terminator Salvation. And I expected to hate her here. But she surprised me in this film. As she plays the woman in charge of running the park. As as the Park grows more and more chaotic, I could sympathize with her struggle to hold the place together and prevent as little panic and loss of life as possible. Claire also has a decent character arc as she must learn to respect the animals of her park as living beings who also have feelings. She also has a pair of nephews visiting the Park, who haven't seen her in 7 years and end up thrown into danger when the Indominus Rex escapes. Both of whom are played pretty well by Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins. Irrfan Khan is enjoyable as Mr. Masrani, the man who's filled the shoes of the now dead John Hammond. The only actor I didn't enjoy, was Vincent D'Onofrio, who plays a cliche character who wants to weaponize the Raptors for the military. He gets what he deserves in the end.
The score of this film is also nice and majestic. They couldn't get John Williams (He's busy with The Force Awakens.) So they got Michael Giacchino, whose music I've loved in Star Trek (2009), Super 8, Ghost Protocol, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
They play the original and familiar Jurassic Park theme a few times, but the composer knows to rely on his own original flourishes. Which is a statement that goes for pretty much this entire film.
It pays a loving homage to the original film, and fills your heart with nostalgia. But it still manages to be original and tell its own story.
As with any of these films, the dinosaurs are cool to look at. The end climax is an absolute JOY to watch.
In conclusion, comparing this film to the first one, is like comparing the Indominus Rex, to the classic T-Rex. 
Sure, the I-Rex is bigger, and smarter and can do all these cool things. But the T-Rex will always be the favorite dinosaur by the fans. And much like the I-Rex has some of the T-Rex's DNA, this film has much of the same feelings and tones of that original Jurassic Park put into it. But the film-makers have also injected alot of other things into this film that make it unique and original enough, while making the series fresh again.
I'll put it this way, each year there's one movie coming out that's part of a franchise I love and I anticipate it more than any other film that year. In 2012, it was Prometheus. In 2013, it was EVIL DEAD. In 2014, it was Godzilla. I walked away from all of those films happy. But none of them left me with the strong feeling of nostalgia and satisfaction that Jurassic World has.
It's not a perfect film. There are flaws with it. But it's a fun ride, with interesting subtexts if you look for them, that made me cry and feel like a kid again. I give Jurassic World a Strong Recommend, and an 8.5/10   :)

Hard to say which fate is worse being turned to stone or into another nanno infested medusa and serving as a drone in the Quisling army.
