Why Jurassic World Should Just Give Us The Feathered Dinosaurs We Want

Jurassic Park and its sequels have never been what you'd call scientifically accurate. (Sorry, Dr. Malcolm, standing still isn't camouflage.) And, yet, somehow, the lack of feathers is the inaccuracy that most rankles. Does it really matter that the new dinos will be scaly instead of soft? You bet it does.

The B-Movie Knock-Off Of Jurassic World Is Of Course Jurassic City

What happens if you don't have the budget to show an actual world taken over by genetically resurrected dinosaurs? Well, then you should probably limit yourself to sticking to a single city — much as Vertical Entertainment has done in their new, Jurassic World-inspired direct-to-DVD movie.

Is This Webcomic How Jurassic Park Would Play Out In The Real World?

The Jurassic Park films let us imagine a world where humans are prey, hunted by mighty and fearsome predators. This webcomic by cartoonist Boulet imagines a much grimmer reality, one where resurrected dinosaurs have far more to fear from humans than we do from them. » 12/02/14 3:40pm 12/02/14 3:40pm
