Well, for instance, I want T. rex to be like she's been in the past: not a Pokemon, and not anthropomorphised ("teaming up" with other dinosaurs to fight the bad guy dinosaur then letting the buddy dinosaur live whilst giving him/her a "knowing" look and then walking off), but just an animal. The T. rex doesn't go out of it's way to "help" the cast, but doesn't act villainous towards the cast either. T. rex doesn't go and chase them all over for no reason (like Spino), but acts in a territorial (TLW RV's), hunting (JP Galli's), curious (JP main road attack), or protective (TLW camp attack) way instead. Heck, even acting fearful, like when the Buck romps around San Diego scared outta his mind, would be interesting to see. I want T. rex to be an animal. A big, threatening, and dangerous animal, but an animal just the same. T. rex is like a bear, or a cougar: yeah, it'll attack you, but only because you got too close to her offspring, or were hanging around his territory. The Bear doesn't team up with the cougar in order to fight the bulldozer.

Completely agreed. I was able to swallow most other parts of the movie I didnt full agree with, however, this I could not. It was just too much, obviously geared to a younger generation of thrill seekers that wanted a big brawl in the end.

Well, I have seen smaller birds such as crows and seagulls sort of team up to drive birds of prey out of residential areas, so it's really not that far fetched.....Just sayin'.

I too want a real dinosaur, as I assume many do. Not some super hero. While it was epic at the theaters, seeing Buttercup kick butt, it seems too unrealistic now.

As for the raptors, I want to see some pack hunting; raptors chasing people down in a coordinated manner, pouncing on unsuspecting peeps, you get the dealio.

I've heard of singular species cooperation doing that. Never here of interspecies cooperation like that.

Would definitely prefer dinosaurs to behave simply like wild animals-not doing noble heroes, nor vicious, evil monsters- simply animals doing what their instinct tells them.

I'm I the only one who felt that Rexy was portrayed naturally in JW? Razz I never saw it as a team up but just that both Rexy and Blue were fighting the same predator and Rexy only spared Blue due to having multiple injuries and not to mention that Blue seemed nervous of the T.rex in front of her. But do I want the dinosaurs too be more of a threat in the next film, yes I do.

I am of two minds on this: I fully agree that dinosaurs should be portrayed as multi-faceted animals rather than brawling monsters. It retains the sense of realism that this franchise has otherwise strived for, and what many have praised the JP series for.

But, I do not think Rexy was reduced to being a Pokemon or a summon spell for the heroes, had there been no Indominus rex she would have killed our four protagonists and the surviving Raptors for territorial rights. The fact that Blue and Rexy did not attack each other was only an alliance of convenience. Being beaten within an inch of death was enough to convince her not to keep fighting, especially against five smaller, healthier and more agile targets.

Like animals, that is all.

But I already predict they'll act like monsters, bc that sounds the path they want to go now. Neutral

The I-Rex was the only dinosaur in JW that acted like a monster, and it may have very well been intentionally designed to be like that. The Rex was pretty much abused, putting into harm's way by leading it to the I-Rex. The raptors were treated like animals and that was cool for the most part, but bot the Rex and raptors were personified by the end.

The personification aspect, I imagine, might continue. I hope it doesn't.

Maybe they were a bit personifed at the end but it was only done a little bit which couldn't hurt but if the next film does it completely...

Suspect

I'm hoping to move away from that aspect. I can accept how Rexy acted, because she's old, and it basically came down to "I'm too old for this stuff." Blue was raised by humans, and animals raised that way can have their quirks, so that's why I assume Blue was still loyal to Owen and even gave that sort of unknowing nod at the end, especially as Owen was all that was left of her pack.

Next film, I don't want completely domesticated dinosaurs. Since I have a feeling we'll go there anyway, I'm fine with a few more hybrids if done right, but for the actual animals, I don't want anything to get too personal with them.

This thread feels a bit silly to me. Nothing the animals did in the movie seemed out of logic to me or more anthropomorphized than things we've seen in previous movies. The movie illustrated flares were used to lure Tyrannosaurs towards a food source, and the flare was later used to lure her towards the Indominus rex successfully. The Rex went to no special lengths to protect the humans. .

Blue and her pack behaved with plenty of aggression towards Owen and co., but retained some level of affection, which isn't especially unlike real life predators kept as pets by people - unpredictable animals but capable of emotion and affection. Being raised by humans is highly explicable for her actions towards the Indominus, and it's shown she has a closer relationship to Owen - and in addition, the Velociraptor pack has all been genetically-engineered to work with military humans, which also adds further possibility. The fact Blue runs back off into the island, versus following the humans around further, showcases she's still a wild creature.

The only anthropomorphized bit is Rexy and Blue's nods. That's really it.

Like animals, not anthropomorphized or monsters.
Also, would be awesome to see both feathered and scaly

Like real living creatures. It would make sense for them to go AWOL in this situation because they're bing introduced with no boundaries to prevent these animals from attacking each other and there gonna possibly be a few moronic humans who would hunt them down in the streets. A stressful situation like that would make things more troublesome for both people and the animals.

The only thing weird about it was the head nod by Blue. "I got dis bro"
