With the fifth instalment imminent, I was thinking that this franchise is unusual. It has been very successful financially but is different from other successful franchises. I can't imagine meeting someone who would proclaim themselves to be a big fan of the series like you would find big fans of the Star Wars/Aliens/Harry Potter/Indiana Jones series. Have you ever met someone who says "I'm a huge Jurassic Park fan"? The films are pretty entertaining but don't contain memorable characters which would make them genre classics. I have the feeling they lack something, and I find the fact they are still churning them out quite surprising. Any thoughts on the series?
