Steven Spielberg's legendary adventure film / backdoor commercial for a lucrative ride through a real theme park. Jurassic Park was released over 25 years ago. Recently the timeless premise "Dinosaur Theme Park plus Carnage" was revived by the series Jurassic World with Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and a cavalry of more vulnerable children, whose names and faces we already know completely forgotten. (Sorry, kids.)
When the first of these new blockbusters hit theaters in 2015, not only the franchise was restarted, but also the park itself. John Hammond's plan for a dinosaur theme park may seem like some annoying, terribly violent Deaths have been overridden, but Jurassic World finally sees his vision come true ̵
This new park is not only open, it is also thriving . And it's no wonder Jurassic World has it all; genetically modified dinosaurs, human hamster balls and even a Starbucks – because which barista wouldn't want to travel by helicopter to a remote island to make frappuccinos with dinosaur motifs for sweaty American tourists?
When Jurassic World was first published, it all seemed … kind of weird. Would you really reopen Jurassic Park after the tragedies depicted in the first film? Think about it; If the test run of Universal & # 39; s Wizarding World of Harry Potter resulted in multiple deaths and multiple near-unbundling of children, people would probably not suck butter beers back as if it wasn't a big deal just a few years later. And the events of the first film were known at Jurassic World . For example, how could Jimmy Buffett sanction the construction of a Margaritaville location on Velociraptor Death Island? From what he knew, his customers would enjoy their "Calypso Coconut Shrimp" right where Newman was terribly gutted.
Well, now everything makes a little more sense. As the critic of Matt Zoller Seitz and others on social media highlighted, no one who experiences the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic would ever question the credibility of these events. Despite the fact that we are in the midst of a global emergency that has killed more Americans than the entire Vietnam War, many leaders, including the President, are pushing to reopen this US economy against expert advice. And we are already seeing people who are ready to risk their lives and the lives of others, just to get a haircut or to see how Vin Diesel is injected with nanotechnology and goes on a rampage.
In retrospect, it is ridiculous to think that two decades after his death, the business world would not push to reopen a dinosaur theme park. Some restaurants are already resisting blocking orders and people are coming to eat – and Velociraptors are probably a bit more exciting than breakfast burritos. In fact, it is unfortunately commendable that during the actual emergency nobody tried to open the Jurassic Park . Texas is reopening its stores, despite the fact that more than 1,000 people get sick every day – a bit like John Hammond starting to ferry tourists shortly after the electric fences broke out and his grandchildren disappeared.
The The Jurassic Park series was always to a certain extent about the moral deficiencies of placing business interests before human life. John Hammond is a kind old man with a penchant for straw hats and white linen outfits, but his actions in the original Jurassic Park are pretty mixed up. One of Hammond's workers dies like three minutes in the movie while helping bring a bird of prey into his cell.
