^Thats long been one of Spielberg’s great strengths. Look at the families in Jaws, Close Encounters, and E.T. They all feel like real people.
At any rate, I still stand by my statement that only the first film was really great. TLW is not terrible, but it has some really corny stuff that seems out of place and feels a lot like an stereotypical cheap sequel from the 70’s or 80’s to me for some reason. Effects-wise, it essentially took the effects from the first and did more of the same but ramped up to the next level. But it wasn’t nearly the groundbreaking event the first film was. It was just a logical evolution of those amazing feats.
JP3 is pretty terrible, but it’s still fun in a crappy B-movie sort of way.
JW is another cheesy B-movie but with a better story and better actors and (I assume) a bigger budget that really knew how to have fun with its ludicrousness.
This new film, based on the trailer, is growing on me. It looks to be another big budget B-movie, but they're (hopefully) using more animatronics/practical effects. And it looks like it’s gonna try out some of the classic dinosaur movie tropes like a big volcanic eruption. I’m not onboard because “ZOMG DINOSAURS!” I’m on board b/c “ZOMG Dinosaurs and volcanoes in a big budget sequel to a franchise that I’ve really enjoyed 3 out of 4 entries so far and returning cast members that I’ve found thoroughly entertaining!”
