So obviously by now we have seen the Jurassic World trailer dozens of times by now. Of course, everyone noticed one thing- the CGI in the film is definitely not as realistic as the dinosaurs and CGI used in Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
Now, some people find this to be a problem, which is somewhat understandable. How are we supposed to enjoy a Jurassic Park Movie if not even the special effects live up to the original.
Others like me don't care as long as it is detailed and the movie itself is good and not a dissapointment.
*Looks at Jurassic Park 3
First, let's look at the Shark and the mososaur.
This is when we should see why the CGI is a problem. When I looked at the trailer along with others, we could immediately tell the shark and the mososaur was fake. The animals were very detailed, probably took hundreds of hours to animate, and took a whole lot of work to do.
The whole time I was watching this, I was thinking that it was fake, so I had to make myself hide the fact that it was fake and just say to myself, wow that's fake but well animated so I guess I can let it slide.
Now let's think about Jurassic Park and The Lost World.
Whenever we see a dinosaur in the movie, especially the raptors and the T-Rex, the animation and the robots were made so REAL that chances are you DIDN'T think about that the fact that they are fake. You just thought "Holy sh*t... That is a f**king dinosaur!!!"
THAT is the REAL problem with the CGI- we need to think about the fact of WHY the effects of the original were superior; because when you saw the effects like I did in the first film, you never really thought about the fact that it was all fake- it was and IS very realistic. it's like real dinosaurs were trained to be in the movie.
With the trailer in Jurassic World, all that I and a lot of others thought about is that it's all fake and CGI so we need to prepare ourselves to just enjoy the movie while thinking "Hey, that's well animated and all, but it's just so fake."
That is why I think the CGI, when it is getting the final touches before release needs to be realistic as possible- so when we see Jurassic World, we think about how REAL it is, not how FAKE it is. We should think when we see the Mososaur "Wow, that's an actual aquatic prehistoirc animal right there!!!" Not "Oh, that's a well animated water dinosaur there, fake, but still cool."
Note that I know Mososaurs aren't dinosaurs.
That is the point I am tyring to make about the CGI, when it is finished it needs to be real so it could ahve the same effect the original had. I also just wanted to show really why the orignal had really good longlasting effects. It was done so we thought for a while it was real, not that it was all done with technology.
Sorry if I didn't say these things clearly, stressed out and felt like making a hopefully interesting topic. Anyways, please leave a reply, I'll be interested in reading your thoughts!
