About this deal

However, it has a very diverse cast, so maybe that explains why it got panned by a lot of the public. Director Colin Trevorrow describes his desire to juxtapose the ancient-by-human-standards backdrop of a city like Valletta with the 65 million year old creatures tearing through it. In ‘Jurassic Park’ Dodgson is a slimy opportunist who abets Dennis Nedry to steal dinosaur embryos, the attempt resulting in a major power-outage across the island; however, now Dodgson is the CEO of conglomerate ‘BioSyn’ (‘sin’ is the unsubtle clue) mimicking the roles of John Hammond, Peter Ludlow, Simon Masrani and Eli Mills before him. The movie was originally released in theaters in early June with a runtime of two hours and 26 minutes, the longest of any film in the Jurassic franchise. For the week that ended on December 3rd, it's déjà vu all over again, as Paramount Home Media Distribution's Top Gun: Maverick topped both the the Blu-ray-only and overall packaged media charts for the fifth week in a row, followed once again by Universal Pictures .

However, it isn’t without the occasional redeeming moment and the film does get better in the second half, so if you’re a big dinosaur fan and you just want to watch the Pyroraptor dance then the Blu-ray, 4K or UHD digital versions are the best bet. As one would expect, it is chock-a-block with superb CGI Dinos, with the most exotic names, and some with extraordinary appearances. Just those alone add enough to the experience to be worth it; with the other nine+ minutes of extra footage teased to be in the film, who knows what else awaits? It's a watchable film, but it is also deeply flawed, overlong, and frankly not all that interesting.Jurassic World Dominion was directed by Colin Trevorrow, who shot the original Jurassic World and co-wrote Fallen Kingdom. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Jurassic World Dominion enjoys both cuts on the 4K disc, the theatrical cut and the director's preferred extended cut which is around 14 minutes longer. While the action sequences were fun the character arcs were a bit thin compounded by bringing back Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm, Laura Dern’s Ellie Sattler, and Sam Niel’s Alan Grant.

There are a few dodgy shots here and there like Owen on the horse in the mountains chasing down a dino or when everyone was trying to run away from the raptors on Malta where the iffy CGI backgrounds don’t come alive in 3D, but those are only momentary sequences.There is the slightly strange to the downright absurd: Grady and Dearing live in near-adoptive harmony with Blue (a velociraptor, who happens to have pitched up residence near to their isolated cabin).

Thanks to Random Space Media - 3D Blu-ray fanatics have a reason to power up the dusty old 3DTV or projector and slap on some glasses! And of course, there are ever bigger, ever better, killers, like the Giganotosaurus, and the extremely unpleasant Therizinosaurus, which means 'scythe lizard’ ~ you will quickly see why! Complete the incredible journey that began with Jurassic Park as two generations unite to fight for the future in Jurassic World Dominion. There’s also an over-reliance on CGI, which looks more like a crutch than a device to give wonder to the audience.

It introduces a wide range of new dinosaurs into the mix and that might compensate somewhat for the over-reliance on action sequences, CGI and nostalgic heart string tugs. If this movie had focused more on dinosaurs being in on the mainlands of the Earth and less about the Locusts, then this movie would have been a lot better.
