Because....

Too long, not funny, bad plot, unlikeable characters...

I don't remember the book being too funny...

Who's talking about the book? I thought we were talking about the movies. The film tries to be funny way too much with stupid one-liners and fails to deliver. Haven't seen it lately for a good reason so don't remember exactly. Ian was a good sidekick in the first film to have some good comments but he isn't good as a lead character. Also "his kid" is annoying as hell unlike the kids in the first film.

Too long? What kind of complain is that?

Bad plot? What, are you kidding? The InGen takeover is probably an even better plot than the first one. And this really gets into why JP3 is bad, atrocious effects aside, Spielberg insisted the animals never be made the villian because they're just animals. And he's right. Who's the bad guy in JP? Dennis maybe, the god of chaos willing that shit hits the fan. Who's the bad guy in TLW? Even easier, you've got Hammond's nephew, arguably the hunter guy doing stupid things.

Who's the bad guy in JP3? Yeah that's right the bloody lame spinosaur. It has no plot other than rargh, bad CGI dinos eat you!!! Wild animals bad! Rargh!

A fair one? If a movie drags too long, it's a negative. The same way it's a complain, that JPIII is way too short (but that's probably for the best giving the content).

Yes, the plot in TLW is ridiculous. I don't need a bad guy to make the film good or bad so what kind of comment is that anyways. And I agree about JPIII.

Anyways, on topic maybe.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

It's a UNIX system! I know this!

A picture is worth a thousand words. Post 102 is worth more.

I’m late to the party, but I think this is the best song. Enjoy!

It wasn't a bad film. 

The coach/cliff/T-rex sequence was the best bit of the whole series.

And it had a gay in it.

Is there not an off topic thread?

Ben Affleck should direct.

(No, he shouldn't, but the topic.)

Would it be off topic or irrelevant to discuss who shouldn't direct?

No but I'm more concerned that I'd planned to do quiche for me and the kids tonight. Thanks for ruining my plans, people :)

noooooooooo, Bird was on my shortlist, why would he do this?  Let's hope 1952 is good.  Hopefully Matthew Vaughn, Alfonso Cuarón, Ron Howard, Michel Gondry, Marc Foster, Joe Cornish, Antoine Fuqua, Michael Mann and Guillermo Del Toro all still have a shot.  I know Joe Johnston and Jon Favreau actually want to do it.  And with Tom Hiddleston saying he wants to be in it... there is still hope.

The more I read these names the more I have to insist that it not be an established director.

Movies these days.

Therefore, directors these days.

If they want to go low profile, choose me! I have no film, writing, or directing experience. That's as unestablished as they come.

There are a lot of good directors that are "below the radar" out there. Joe Dante, for example.

Where were you in '77?

I wouldn't know Bird if I fell over him so it's no big deal to me.  I've heard of Joe Dante, though, and I think he's fabulous.
