    I love the scene where the hunters show up in their vehicles and start capturing dinosaurs.

    Fun fact: the intro to the movie is actually taken in part from the beginning of the first book. Reading the Lost World itself will actually help fill plot holes

    Even with all the criticism, which I agree with. It's still better than 3 was.

    I think the reason this one didnt have as much magic and wonder is because in the first one we were following paleontologists whose dream was to see these creatures. But as we follow Jeff goldblums character he has a more cynical look on it, he's a chaos theory professor so it's always worst case scenario s and doom which gives a more harsh and dark vibe. At least that's how I see it. Also is it just me or did this movie have a sepia tone to it for the day shots? It had a dusty cast to it which also probably had something to do with the tone.

    Easily one of my least favorite in the franchise, though I’m still a big fan of it. Some of my favorite moments in the franchise are in this film. My biggest issues with this one is the writing. It feels like there’s such a lapse in logic across many characters. It usually feels like characters are making poor decisions that just end up causing disaster lol Characters that should be smart, but are making a lot of dumb decisions. With that said.. I love the look of the film, the special effects are amazing and I really enjoy the performances, but the characters aren’t given the best material. The animatronics are beautiful!

    For people asking about the ships captain, it was clearly the baby T-rex that did it. Mommy was teaching her kid how to hunt. Obviously the big rex was out of the holding cell, but likely skulked back in once it was tranquilized. Once that happened the captain likely went to shut the door, but was taken out by the baby.
    The baby would have seen mom being locked up and dragged the captain into the hold with it's mom to eat. Then the doors locked (ish) and the boat crashed into the main land.


    Did this girl pay attention to the movie?. THEY WERE BUILDING A SECOND JURASSIC PARK IN SAN DIEGO. They got Roland to Hunt the Tyrannosaur, because he was the best in the world.

    Tamara you get more beautiful with every movie you make. Honestly since I first saw you do the Alice in wonderland nostalgia critic when it first came out you have continued to enhance your appeal on the Male eye. So whatever you are doing (even if it is nothing at all), it is working 10 fold. Love this videos and I have clicked "the bell" lol so keep up the awesome content and I will continue to watch and support!

    I hated almost every character in this movie, almost no one had the qualification to be on this island and no one had the sense to refuse to go on the island. I do respect the use of practicle effects, and still having the concept that you cannot contain or control life (unlike in Jurassic World). Jeff G was ok, still way more serious than in the previous movie, I actually liked the T-Rex's character more. Oh who's gonna forget that one dumbass who gets a snake in his shirt and runs out of the waterfall to run right into the trex again,like wtf use your sense, take your shirt off or something, there's a bigger danger he must be worried about right?

    Aside from the marketing for it (BK watches, roaring cereal box contests, etc). I never cared much for the Lost World. It's just pretty boring compared to the other movies in the series (yeah I'm in the minority who likes part 3).

    Fun fact, my dad took my youngest brother to see this movie in the theaters because he was in love with dinosaurs at the time (was always watching his Land Before Time Movies), but my mom got furious with my dad because my brother was still a toddler at the time lol.
    Me this movie is guilty pleasure with the best part being the leading actor here. I personally can't stand the 3rd movie and so I NEVER saw any of the reboots because the concept annoys the hell out of me.

    I am so sad about the guy who was watching the daughter in the "high nest" who gets eaten trying to pull up the RV? SUCH A NICE GUY. AND HE DIES AND NO ONE BLINKS AT IT!
    Also... The implication from the crew slaughter was that it was eitehr Ingen or the folks who tried to get the DnA in the first movie, trying to sabotage the whole thing. (either to discredit hammond (if ingen) or to bankrupt ingen) if the other company)

    Just one little tidbit -- from what I can tell, that attack on the girl (which was from the _first_ book and had the girl survive) was actually on the mainland. They never quite explained how a compy got off the island and swam that far though.

    *sighs* Kids like food. There is no magical age at which kids start liking certain foods. It's always bugged the shit out of me whenever someone says "kids don't like (insert food item)" I had fellow parents telling me my kid wouldn't like Chinese food because kids don't like it. Made me wonder if kids in China just starve.
    I also realized over the years that the "tastes change" thing is bullshit. I liked spinach. Then I hated spinach. Then I liked it. the only thing that changed was the way it had been prepared the times I ate it. My tastes didn't change I just didn't like how it was cooked.

    i think the movie is ok, but their are parts of the movie really pisses me off. Mosty it's the good guys that get me so angry. I don't really think the bad guys are really doing anything that's bad. It's their property, and they created them and they can do anything they want with the dinosaurs. Most of the deaths in the movie you can blame the good guys, due to their sabotage.

    The Lost World is the perfect example of "The Book Was Better." I loved the movie as a kid because I was a MASSIVE Jurassic Park nerd and I didn't even care that they'd butchered the story for the movie, but the older I get, the worse I realize it is. 😥

  • Jantzen Bruce
    Jantzen Bruce Year ago

    As funny as what you said was, Vince Vaughan wasn’t calling the T-Rex a son of a bitch. He was yelling at the bearded guy who gets eaten because of a snake because he was moving around in the waterfall, pushing the other characters closer to the Rex. I think the subtitles made it clearer.
    Though I don’t blame you for thinking that. I did for years until I got it on dvd. Lol

    So I tend to enjoy your Never Seen videos...but you're entire part on how unrealistic it is for people to try to bring the dinosaurs to the mainland for money was rather out of touch. Have you read up on any of the major disasters or even minor tragedies that have happened in recent history. Most of them have to do with people doing stupid things for money. Hell, the entire situation with Deepwater Horizon will make you feel dirty when you read about it...and that boiled down to greed. At the end of the day, that part of JP2 was the most realistic for how the world works.

    they made a HUGE point of saying "the little girl will be fine" at the beginning, though the Compsognathus DID get a real kill later in the movie, just to prove a saurian the size of a chicken can indeed kill a man in large enough numbers.

    Yep, I agree with most of what you said, but I must say, If you read the books, you will understand some of the scenes they put in this movie...Th first scene is based on the beginning of the original Jurassic Park book which is much darker than any of the movies and has some amazing moments... I still wish a close adaptation from the book was made to see Dennis Nedry being gutted out, and grabbed by the head by a properly sized dylophosaurus until all turned dark. Or Ellie Sattler kicking velociraptor ass, or even better, the T-rex river chase scene... and i'll say nothing else :)

    The book sucked too. In the first book spoilers Jeff Goldblum's character dies at the end but upon starting The Lost World Michael Crichton wrote these words "Malcolm had, in fact, been reported dead in several newscasts.....'but it turns out that I was only slightly dead.'" I felt like Kathy Bates in Misery talking about the cheat that the hero you saw go over the cliff in a fiery crash die but in the next instalment he got out just in time. "HE DIDN'T GET OUT OF THE COCK-A-DUTY CAR!!"

    I think this movie is decent, I didn't hate it at all. Except Julianne Moore. Why does she always play bitchy characters? She does it well though I guess, very well cast in the Carrie remake. The only movie I've seen her in where I actually felt sympathy for her was Boogie Nights.

    • rangers94ism

      I loved her in the Big Lebowski. I didn't think that she was bitchy. She just played a character who wanted to cut through all the bull crap that was obviously going on.

    What can I say about Jurassic Park 2 that hasn't been said before...
    It can be a fun movie if you completely turn off your brain.
    JP2 The Lost World novel had a much smaller but better story which was less spectacular!
    I always found that screenplay weird! I mean Nick Van Oven and Sarah Harding were presented as the good guys and yet they were directly responsible for every single death in the movie including what happened in San Diego.
    They were complete idiots to take that T-Rex baby when they perfectly knew that its parents will track them and that got their friend killed.
    Sarah Harding was supposed to be the expert but her character was written so badly that the impression was totally different...
    early in the film she talked about how they should avoid all contact with the dinosaurs yet she started petting one the first chance she got.
    Later she the mentioned how strong sense of smell the T-Rex has but still despite that she wore the baby T-Rex blood soaked jacket during most of the movie which made her responsible for many fatalities.
    The Ingen team on the Island was there to catch mostly herbivores for the ZOO but they were forced to change their plans after that stampede that "the good guys" caused when they opened the cages which destroyed all the communication equipment stranding everyone on the island.
    Roland wanted to kill the T-Rex but his bullets were stolen by Van Oven and was forced to tranquilize it so the San Diego incident wouldn't have had happened if those bullets weren't stolen by what the screenplay presented to the audience as "the good guy"

    Read the book, it was excellent. The movie, not so much. I think the scene with the guys hand all that is left is supposed to suggest that raptors are on the ship if I remember right. And greed will always win out. Haven't you ever seen a movie where the rich guy demands what they want no matter the cost?
