Can I just ask...?

So, apparently, "Jurassic Park 4" ain't gonna happen: http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=51101

Well, that sucks.

But... can I just ask, now that apparently the ONLY franchise about dinosaurs allowed to exist in an era where you can CGI up an army of them for less than it costs for a Jim Carrey walk-on is done with... CAN WE GET SOME MORE FUCKING DINOSAUR MOVIES NOW, PLEASE?

Seriously. Back in the 50s and 60s when all anyone had to work with were expensive, time-consuming suits, stop-motion puppets and intricate miniature photography we were getting like 30 to 40 dinosaur movies a year. But today? Nothing. That's fucking criminal. And don't tell me the audience isn't there... "Dragon Wars" was HUGE internationally. Someone get behind a camera and get this shit done.

Howsabouts "Godzilla Conquers the Cavemen?" Starring Shia LaBeouf, Johnny Depp, and Samuel L. Jackson! It'll be a hit, just get me a camera and some funding. It can't be any worse than Twilight.

Hey Bob, great advice about the Changeling. Good movie. I avoided Twilight and glad I did. So what do you know about The Day The Earth Stood Still? I may go tomorrow while my 20 yr. and 14 yr. old daughters see Twilight.

Sorry, I didn't mean tomorrow, I meant Friday.

Jurassic Park got worse and worse with each movie. The first one was good, but each after it basically sucked. If they make more dino movies cool, but just not another JP.

Wasn't this one going to be about the military using dinosaurs? Man, that would have been like a live action Dino Riders... and Dino Riders was too awesome for words.

have to agree about jp 3 - i mean raptors with language? i don't think so. sure, raptors were smart - for dinosaurs. that means you basic mouse is smarter. their brains just weren't that evolved.

at least king kong had some cool dinosaur stuff. maybe peter jackson will remake the lost world, or some of the other classic monster movies.
