Possibly because a global takeover of dinosaurs would be quite difficult to not "see coming". Unless millions of them just materialised out of thin air suddenly, which is unlikely. You need something more insidious. Unless human beings just suddenly turned into dinosaurs, which is again unlikely.





Reign of Fire did this.

Jetpacks. It's right there in the original post. I've edited it back in. Stanley Tucci's Jetpacks.

Hmmm, well as far as I know none of the dinosaurs were able to breathe fire, not even the flying ones. And thank god because Jurassic Park would've been a much shorter, more tragic film if that were so. The concept of dragons does allow much more room to be flexible in terms of 'logic' (a loose term here) and suspension of disbelief.

That is a disappointment. I was hoping he meant Stanley Tucci's third nipple, or something. I don't know if he has one.

Perhaps Mclane's original question should be altered as thus:

point taken
also on stanley tuccis it was more meant around him being in more movies but stanley tucci's jetpack rocks as an idea in itself whilst also being a great name for a band.

and the movie could be similar to 'being John Malcovich' but called 'Stanley Tucci's Jetpack' a sort of indie comedy where stanley invents a jetpack and then saves the world flying about- from Dinosaurs!

by the looks of it JP4 wont be my mega global Dino fest either- looks more like resident bloody evil

and 'a sound of thunder' was a real let down, quite strange to watch an unfinished film though with the 'we ran out of money cause no one would distribute it' cgi.

Why is there not more generic mutant/alien monster movies starring the pairing of the following actors in order of diminishing preference, but reprising the characters they played previously;
Kevin Bacon & Fred Ward
Treat Williams & Kevin j O'Connor
Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson

Fuck it, get em all together for one Avengers Assemble style monster battle.

*I'm a bit out of touch, what with work and kids and all, I'm assuming they're all still alive.

I've seen Tremors more than any other film (me and my bro taped it off sky movies at an impressionable age). "I've got a GODDAMN PLAN" has between reenacted many a time. We watched all the sequels. Terrible stuff.

Some films have a very finite appeal. I don't think they could have done another good tremors even with bacon and ward. Just one of those
