Ugh, I just want to forget the Spinosaurus as a whole.
I don't know, I feel that the sequels failed because they attempted to make them too kid friendly. That's why I would like the next movie to be a little bit more smaller scale. Expanding the original operation to even more islands is a step in the wrong direction in my opinion. Imagine how awesome the imagery would be if we go back to an Isla Nublar that has been allowed to grow and basically remain unmolested for over 20 years.
I especially like and admire Zechs. He's everything I wish I could be!

God that movie had some great gore.
Jurassic Park was a phenomenon because although it was a horror/suspense film, kids loved it. The sequels were made with that in mind. The story in both The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III was extremely dumbed down. They gutted all the high concept ideas in favor of flashier action sequences. Instead of questions about the ethics behind the science or the impact reintroducing these creatures would have on the enviroment, we are given scenes with the Tyrannosaurus drinking out of a swimming pool and eating a kid's dog.
Besides, I didn't say they were kid friendly, just that the studio attempted to make them more too kid friendly. Like I said, kids LOVED the first movie. They needed to sell toys, so instead of going in the direction that Michael Crichton mapped out in his books, the studio came up with this silly idea about opening up a second park in San Diego, so they could have a "cool" action sequence with the T-Rex. Jurassic Park III even featured a kid who has capable of surviving on a island full of dinosaurs by himself, hell, he even rescued Alan Grant at one point in time during the movie! If your kid could sit through Jurassic Park, they would have no problem sitting through either of the sequels.

God that movie had some great gore. The second one though felt so darn tame. Though I fully blame the producers for listening to Jack Horner for Jurassic 3. The T-Rex having such a small role and Spiney having such a large one is all his fault. I don't care that his freaking T-Rex is a scavenger theory. The damn thing is a screen legend predator. LET IT BE A GODDAMN PREDATOR!!!
Still kudos at the very least for the briefly awesome Rex vs. Spiney fight. *looks up what Old Jack has done since*
Ew... the dude is on the same level as Looney Bin Jim.

I think The Goonies would have to be a reboot/sequel type of thing with the children of the original Goonies going on their own adventure.
They are making a sequel/reboot/remake of Vacation with Ed Helms starring as Rusty Griswold taking his own family to Wallyworld since he enjoyed it so much when he was a kid. I hope he chooses to call this time around.
