Thinking too much about dinosaurs eating people in movies. Again.

Soooo the kids in this movie are from a ridiculously well off family which is splitting up and they're the nephews of the theme park's director basically. They aren't the kids whose parents have freakin scraped all year so that the family can go to Isla Nubilar and get their photos taken riding the Triceratops horridus, nor are they the poor schlep kids who seem to have been flown in from SoCal to run the rides and help feed live pigs to Deinonynchuses. (My head canon about those kids is that they are interns.) This kinda leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Which brings up point two, director lady's well-we-have-to-have-even-awesomer-dinos-yearly because ten years ago a Stegosaurus was incredibly exotic and now it's basically a zoo elephant. I realize this is probably meant as a look-how-unsympathetic-she-is thing, because plenty of kids are really excited to see elephants (and rhinos, which make elephants look mundane and common). Again, "we saved up all freakin' year so we can haul the kids to Isla Nubilar" is not quite "oh hey it's Sunday let's drive to the zoo so the kids can see the elephants."

Anyway. Dinosaurs in movies, I'm all for it.
