At the end of the day you can't go wrong with either, and both are a great double bill.

I recall in an earlier post I mentioned Jurassic Park and if it counts as Horror. Seeing the trailer for the upcoming new film (Fallen Kingdom) it definitely looks far more Horror-oriented than the prior films. I recall one of the writers even said it's a Horror movie with dinosaurs and that's the vibe I get from the trailers.

In any case, the original film is easily the best by a massive margin. I feel the series declines considerably with each movie after the first, though I do think The Lost World has gotten better with age and despite it's faults is a pretty good movie.

Jurassic World was on TV over Christmas and I watched it for the second time. I enjoyed it as much as the first, mainly because the CGI has come on so much and the original as steepd in 90s kitsch. Definitely looking forward to Fallen Kingdom, although I'm questioning how anyone could possibly table a proposal to put the park back together after several disasters involving the inevitable escape of the dinosaurs (hopefully that's not a key plot point of FK)

Not related but related, one of my local FYEs is closing and all their used movies are 50% off (and with my FYE card, I get an additional 10%). Anyway, they must be taking in overstock used from other stores because every time I've gone in, there's new stuff. I ended up scoring a bunch of 3D Blu-rays for like $6 each, and Jurassic World was one of them. Probably going to pop it in this weekend.

Jurassic World was a fun movie. I'm not a fan of Chris Pratt, but I liked seeing this franchise get resurrected.

I thought Pratt was easily one of the better things about Jurassic World. The movie as a whole didn't do it for me but Fallen Kingdom looks promising so far. I like how they're using animatronic dinosaurs again, something sorely lacking and missing from the last film.

On the subject of Jurassic Park/World, going by the newest trailer for the upcoming Fallen Kingdom it definitely looks much more Horror-oriented than the prior films. I recall the director of the fourth film said this one would be a Horror movie with dinosaurs and I certainly get that impression from this new trailer.
