Sorry about the complaining about the film. I got it off my chest and feel better now. I get passionate about these things, positive and negative.

No need to apologize buddy! We all like different things and we all get peeved about different things. As long as it doesn't devolve into personal attacks all is good.

So long as there are people and an outlet like the internet for them to reach other people, there will always be heated debates and anger over this, that, or the other thing. Sometimes it's good, other times it ends/de-evolves with fiery dumpster gifs and a user simply putting somebody on their block list.

Hell, it's given us fun things like the Nostalgia Critic's review of the film:

I know, you're right.smileI don't like to complain about things other people like, like JPIII, like I said I just get passionate about these things.

JP3 used to depress me, but now the series is in a better place, so now JP3 is merely a single zit on an otherwise lovely face.

I'd rather watch silly stupid JPIII three times rather than rewatch either Jurassic World movie. (And I like both leads but these movies just SUCK in a way that isn't even enjoyable to me.)

I love all the other films, it's just JP3 I have issues with.

Everyone does. But the world has moved on from JP3, and so shall I.

Not trying to be edgy. I tried to like them (as I do with most things) and I just couldn't. Somehow they managed to be even more cynical and soulless cash-grabs than the previous sequels.

The Nostalgia Critic has never done anything that can be remotely classified as "fun" wink

Well, some people don't like him. I, however, enjoy most of what he does. Especially what I consider classics like JP3, "The Swan Princess", and the three Godawful animated Titanic films.

JP3 itself is funnier than Nostalgia Critic.
Either way, while it's at the bottom of the Jurassic totem pole, I'd actually label Don Davis' score as one of the more redeemable aspects of it. Its overuse of the Williams themes is kind of gross, as is some of the sledgehammery action music, but it has its moments and should LLL ever put it out, I'd gladly buy it. The album has most of the highlights, but the cues are weirdly edited for some reason, not to mention out of order.
Jurassic music is pretty much to me what Star Wars music is to a lot of other film score fans.

I love DD's action music for JPIII. It's fierce and frantic, but I don't see it as being "sledgehammery" or overly Matrixy. The mawkishness of the family theme has been noted as well, and yes it certainly boarders on the mawkish. But it's still a good theme and Davis does some interesting variations with it throughout. As for overusing the original JP theme, especially as we're on Isla Sorna and the only connection to the first film here is Alan Grant...well, it's Jurassic Park III. The film received a far, far better score than it deserved.

As a film, JP3 always felt to me like a made-for-TV reenactment of unused concepts from JP/LW. The Don Davis score also felt pretty low-rent as well, more like a period video game score.

There is good stuff in JPIII, amidst all that is very, very seriously wrong with it. The pteranodon dome sequence is confoundingly good considering everything else that surrounds it. The early raptor action scenes are quality work too. I like to think of JPIII as a movie made by a kid—kind of like the Jurassic Park film I might have made when I was eight—where the kid character is the hero and the adult characters do dumb things that maybe seem like the kind of thing an adult would do to the mind of a kid and the T-rex gets killed by this bigger, badder dinosaur who's going to take over as the new villain in town and the raptors are not only intelligent but hyper-intelligent now (and Grant being in the movie at all). For better or worse (okay, really for much, much worse), it's a JP movie made by a kid. And looking at it like that I can kind of roll with it a bit better.

JP3 was its own thing, In my opinion a decent "B" movie, not a shitty remake of Jurassic Park like Jurassic World.

For me the T-Rex vs. the Indominus Rex fight in JURASSIC WORLD was better than the entire JP3 film. Now that's an ending, not Grant giving raptors back their eggs.

IMHO the Spinosaurus/T-Rex fight beats anything in that other film. Just wish the fight lasted longer.
