Coming soon to a DVD near you. But not me.

One of the biggest money-making films of all time is out on DVD and Blu-Ray today. And I was wondering if I wanted to get it.

Jurassic World hits stores -- and Amazon Instant Video -- today. I haven't seen the film. Apparently, from the box office numbers, I'm one of about a dozen people who haven't seen it. So, before I shell out $20 for it, I wanted to find out if it's any good. There's a trailer out. An Honest one.

Still not sure they're going to get my money. I could own Jurassic World or get four KFC Lunch Meals. I'm leaning toward the Colonel.

  1. Or you could get two Little Caesars Hot-N-Ready Box Sets.

  2. I'm the other one who hasn't seen it. Mostly because it sounds like it's just Westworld with dinosaurs.

  3. Or you could order a pocket hose. And if you order now, they'll double the offer.

  4. Harvey: I get the impression it would have been better with Michael Caine.

    c6wood: I got a pocket hose. Heh heh heh.

  5. I haven't seen it either.

    Also, "I’m leaning toward the Colonel" sounds gay!

  6. Movie tickets cost $20?

    Huh.

    I'd rather have several cases of V8.

  7. I asked my teen-aged daughter if this movie was worth seeing, and she responded, "Mom! It's got Chris Pratt! On a motorcycle! Chris Pratt on a motorcycle, Mom!" Well, all-righty, then.

  8. Jimmy: I have no idea how much a movie ticket costs. I think they're about half that. But buying the movie from Amazon or from iTunes runs around $20. And, since the video comes out today...

  9. I haven't seen it either. Unless it's something really epic that I've been waiting for my entire life (eg. Justice League) then I can wait. I have a massive television at home, a killer sound system, a comfortable couch, cold beer, and patience.

    Movie theaters are obsolete.

  10. Nope. I'll go with Honest Trailer as actual viewing and save the $.

  11. Basil: Whew! Like me, I'm sincerely glad you don't know. I didn't want us to lose that commonality!

  12. Or a $20 family fill up

  13. Having seen the movie I can truthfully say you'd be better served by buying and eating the four KFC Lunch Meals. The special effects are good but the plot is as shop worn and as predictable as any I have ever seen. It's one of Hollywood's standard plots...the evil greedy corporation led by evil greedy people dedicated to making money no matter the cost to the environment or any modicum of human decency. Except of course for the young decent scientist with a conscience who knows what's going on is wrong but to whom no one will listen until it's too late. Save your money...enjoy the KFC.

  14. Hollywood movies are like voting for bond measures. Just say "No!", and you will be correct 99% of the time.
