    Make it stop, please! How many more permutations of “ooops, our dinosaur genetics experiment/amusement park idea went terribly wrong–AGAIN!” ?

      So just because you don’t want to watch it, people should stop making movies and other people should be deprived of the chance to watch it?

      I mean, I don’t like the transformers movies by Michael Bay either, but I don’t run into the cinema every time a new one is screening and yell at everyone to get out and stop watching them.

      So a bunch of people get to be employeed for 6-9 months; their families can continue to eat; a studio makes some money, and a few little kids and more than a few big ones can go and watch dinosaurs eat each other for a while. Maybe have a little mindless fun. So frickin’ what?

      Nobody is stopping anyone (you included) from making and/or seeing a documentary about Chechnya, a chick flick with Kate Hudson, or a courtroom drama. It’s not in the Constitution that all citizens must see every Jurassic Park movie. If you don’t want to see it, don’t go. I can’t stand Transformers; we deserve SO much better than that. The difference is MY ego isn’t so large that I think I should determine what other people should be seeing.

    • Mark says:

      As long as the public keeps going, they’ll keep making them. Let’s not pretend that any of the sequels where made for the sake of “art,” the first one was the exception. The sequels are about money and they make a lot of money, so the studio should supply that public demand.
