  • Oh the planet’s land mass is shaped like a dinosaur.
  • I am sorry, but I can not watch this trailer without remembering how bad Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) was. Just an abysmal movie. I honestly don’t know if Jurassic World: Dominion could be any worse.
  • 30 seconds in and we get a Sahara like landscape with Lion King-esq lighting.
  • The DUM-DUM like drums are building the tension.
  • A bug lands on something the looks like a tree trunk…but it isn’t! We have our first dinosaur. We have a flock of them. They are among us.
  • A good use of framing to hide the massive size of the bird-like dinosaurs. We got to see the herbivores and their massiveness, but this unicorned teradackdtal land on a rock and perch himself u taller than any human could or would.
  • What is stewing in the water that is going to mess with the peacefulness these dinosaurs are having. There is far too much quaintness going on. We are getting pretty views of rivers and mountains. None of this is going to last.
  • Thus far, two minutes into this prologue, it has strictly been to show off the special effects and atmosphere of the dinosaurs.
  • A feathered animal is beating at some eggs and eating them for breakfast, that is until some louder sounds start to emerge. A flock of triceratops, with cute babies no less are moving, but all things calm are ruffled with the sharp teeth of some carnivores beginning to quiver.
  • A battle of meat-eaters begins ate the three-minute mark of this preview. Based off my point of view, this is a battle for territory.
  • Based off the comments on twitter, we have some inaccurate science facts. Color me not surprised or really offended for that matter, but still worth noting. They can play it off in the story as these two will be sharing earth with the humans due to humanity’s stupidity.
  • The T-Rex gets bitten in the neck and is down bad. He is dead. Not what people expected!
  • Ohhh and now we get the mosquito. So they can’t use the built in excuse of the story from Fallen Kingdom. Still a nice little reference to the original Jurassic Park.
  • Sun transition to modern times and we have a helicopter patrolling for something….I wonder what??
  • I will say, the font used for Jurassic Park and the “65 Million Years Later” is awesome.
  • Oh a drive in movie theater…the classic “let’s all go to the lobby.” Those folks are not going to be happy!
  • That is a great shot at the 4:27 mark with the friends watching from a car and the T-Rex in the background blocking the shot.
  • There is some symbolism here as the T-Rex and the animals have destroyed the theater and everyone goes to the theaters to relieve the thrill of how big dinosaurs are.
  • Cars are flipped. People are screaming. Spotlights are shown to highlight the monster’s physique. This is for the theater.
  • The preview ends with the dinosaur running into the woods and the copter still chasing after them. So this story…is to be continued.

Will I watch Jurassic World: Dominion? Absolutely. Are my expectations high? Not at all. Everyone involved with this movie needs to earn my trust back. Director Colin Trevorrow, the entire writing crew, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum…everyone. Please step your game up.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdown comes to theaters as a summer blockbuster on June 10, 2022.

Ranking The “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Episodes

I am going to say this right off the bat. Obi-Wan Kenobi is not a good TV show. It is bad. It does not garner the good-will needed to carry over the numerous plot holes, pacing issues, terrible acting and cringier writing. Now with that being said, I guess let’s get after ranking the six […]
