Jurassic World

First the disclaimer: this movie is going to make a ton of money regardless of what I think. Okay?

With that out of the way, what is the proper grading scale for a Jurassic Park movie these days? Sitting at 10 is the classic original that wowed everyone with its streamlined story and cutting edge effects. Clocking in at a big fat 0 is the awful Jurassic Park II (aka The Lost World), which put no heart into the endeavor and took its audience totally for granted. Coming in at 6 is Jurassic Park III, an anemic effort that's at least watchable.

Just a quick congratulations to "Sheldon Cooper," who started out as a reviewer here, and published a couple original fiction stories. He just started working for "The Blaze" today. This is the network started by uber-conservative and occasional lunatic Glenn Beck. While Beck is not my favorite pundit by a LONG shot. (Say what you will about Rush Limbaugh, he never used network time to try to convince me the Book of Mormon is True), getting a job in the media is a huge deal.

Ok, so here's a fun one that no one ever talks about:

Galactica 1980 sucked worse than anything that had ever sucked before. No question about it. So let's imagine we're going to reboot it in a way that *doesn't* suck.  How would you go about it?

Here's the original Glen Larson concept  for G-80which, needless to say, didn't make it onscreen:

The Galactica finds earth. It's 5 years after the final episode of the original show. They quickly realize that earth is too primitive to defend itself against the Cylons, so the Council of the 12 debate what to do.
