@mrmonster: I don't really think it's supposed to be "amusing" though. I have never watched a Jurassic film to get a good laugh. They're not comedies. And actually, I did think the island destruction scene was pretty well done, particularly the poignant scene of the Brontosaurus calling out to the boats before being consumed in the island's destruction. Even critics who disliked or hated the movie admitted to liking that scene. Similarly, I thought the mansion stuff felt a lot more fresh and exciting for the franchise than anything in Pirates 5, which really felt like "same old, same old" for that franchise.
