Does discussion of Jurassic World fit better here, or elsewhere on the Board?

You could right a review in the review thread. Or here is fine as well.

I wasn't thinking in terms of reviews (I should probably see it before I make a stab at reviewing it). I was just wondering whether people thought that dinosaurs count as kaiju. Or whether the Giant Monsters forum is even really restricted to kaiju.

I wouldn't say this thread is restricted to kaiju but usually when you think of giant monsters it's not dinosaurs but atomic created beasties.

Well...atomic created-dinosaurs.

Given that the big baddie of the new Jurassic movie is a genetically-altered monster rather than just a dinosaur, that already gives it a leg up on ol' Gorosaurus and Rhedosaurus kaiju classification-wise.

Huh. By that token, only the Americanized version of Rodan counts it into this forum as a kaiju film; the added-in pieces of film implied that atomic testing caused the Rodans to hatch out. In the original Japanese version, they just upped and hatched out by themselves, so where does that leave us?
