30 Days of Film (16): A Film I Used to Love, But Now Hate

Jurassic Park: The Lost World. When I was a child I loved this movie on one premise and one premise alone, it was like the first Jurassic Park, but with more dinosaurs.

Then I read the original Jurassic Park book when I was 14 and shunned this movie in favor of the original film. While both are good, the first one is just an overall better story. As I grew up I started to appreciate things like plot structure, characterization, pacing, etc. where as when I fell in love with this movie all I thought was: Dinosaurs yay!

I pop the DVD in from time to time, but overall, it is still just a barely passable sequel. And don't even get me started on the third one...
