Today at school, we were discussing everyone's favorite dinosaur movie, Jurassic Park.
Well, more so Jurassic Park: The Lost World. So the main topic of discussion is how Jeff Goldblum's character, Dr. Ian Malcolm, is the main character of the sequel. If you watched the first movie, you would know that Dr. Malcolm was very much against the creation of Jurassic Park. In fact, he pretty much dictated what would happen in the first half hour of the movie. Anyway, the basic premise for The Lost World is that Dr. Malcolm is to go to an island NEAR Jurassic Park to monitor the lives of the dinosaurs that have been living there because the old man from the first movie asked him to. You would think that after his first experience with real live dinosaurs, he would say fuck no and go back to his daily life activities. But for some strange reason he obliges and we go on with the movie.
The weirdest part of the movie is when Dr. Malcolm meets the children from the first movie. He's all, "omg look at you guys!" like they were bffs back in the day and he never stopped caring about them. But if we recall from the first movie, Dr. Malcolm is rather cold towards the children, thus making the scene in The Lost World just weird and not necessary. Uh... kay.
And I won't even get into the subject of how stupid it is to bring a T-Rex back to the city with you. What were they thinking?!
