Jurassic Park 4   Friday, July 20, 2001 (2:56 p.m.) 

I was talking to my buddy and we think they left it open for a Jurassic Park 4, also why was it so short, and as you can see they didnt spend very much time on it beacause there wasnt really any speacial efects and they didnt explain about lots of the dinosaurs, thats my thoughts not yours.

DarkHorizons.com reports the possibility of a fourth film in the works. Check over recent updates in the news section of the site for details. The second film also left a huge opening for another story: when the barge carrying the T-Rex arrived in San Diego (Speed 2 style), the crew inside the bridge had been killed, yet the room itself was intact and the T-Rex was still in the cargo bay. That leaves a large opening for a "Raptors on the Mainland" story, considering that they are the most likely to have killed the crew.

I read somwhere that Chrichton was going to write a prequel novel. He said it would have less action than the first two books and probably would'nt be good film material since were all used to blood and guts and escaping dinos. It would probably be written in the classic chrichton techno-thriller style. Just don't quote me on that.

Me and my friend was talking about jurassic park, and how kool It would
be If they was to make a forth one. The first two was extreamly kool,but
the third wasn't all that cause It was short, the Dino. fight was too early,
and Spieberg didn't direct It. I said too her that the forth one should have
the returning stars, sam neil, jeff goldbulem, Lurah dernn, and
William H. M-acy.

You're right Jim! That's indeed what the real JP fans are waiting for. At last there would be some coherence to the three films then. Besides, the "raptors on the mainland" idea from Dave could indeed be used for JP4, provided that the story is in style of Michael Crichton's first JP book, in which this idea is really thrilling and 'worrisome'.

ALL THOSE CHARACTERS??!!

Are you nuts?? One of the downfalls of movies is having too many characters. Call it a disease. Having everyone would be like cancer or something.

Hey, I'm just thinking of it from a screenwriter's POV; but if you ask me, it's overkill.

I just want to see Kelly get eaten...

i think they should have Steven Speilberg direct it. Im mean come on, the 3 movie sucked.No Offence. Steven Knows more than the guy who directed it. And he can tell the story in a more in depth way, thats cause he came up with it. That guy didnt know half the stuff steven knew. I hope Steven dosent let another person direct his franchise. The first and the second were hella tight in those days. Now if u are going to make a 3rd and 4th movie u want it to stay in the line that was set up in the firt 2. If i were directer speilberg i would go back to the Park and actually have visitors,then have an outbreak occure and then have the park shut down.

As we are on the topic of JP4...   Saturday, December 15, 2001 (8:05 p.m.) 

I think if the next movie is going to be successful, it should quickly escape the Batman/James Bond trap. That is, do not make the selling point of the movie it's casting or dinosaurs. It only makes the franchise tired. The only selling points to the Batman sequels were who would be batman, and what (and who would play) the new villians. To it's credit, a handful of the Bond sequels have either provided strong storylines or attempted to expand the persona of the Bond character. Yet the bulk comes down to, who will play Bond, who are the girls, and what new gizmos does he have to play with.
I think JP3 missed a great opportunity to flesh out the role of Dr. Grant. His personal fight with professional extinction and perhaps his reluctance or inability to interact successfully with people (he is basically a loner who embraces his profession with fervor to compensate for his aloofness) could have been explored in his scenes with Ellie and Billy. This personal trait of Grant's may have given Ellie the idea that he had lost interest (when he really hadn't) creating the opportunity for the Ellie character to meet her future husband. Likewise, Grant's enjoyment (though he doesn't show it emotionally) of Billy's company could have really played into the guilt he felt when he thought Billy had died...shortly after Grant had chastised the young man. In such a case, the audience would not just be waiting for the next action sequence. There would some real emotional pull.

One last thought. Many movies had been made where man and dinosaur are thrown into the mix on a deserted island. What made the original book and movie unique was putting this in a theme park setting. I think if JP decends into a cycle of jungle flicks, it will grow real stale/real fast.

And don't ever say that man and dinosaur are thrown 'back in the mix' because they never were in the mix in the first place.

Just a thought...or several of them.
