I agree that feathered dinosaurs might seem to a joke, but the reality is, if you were facing one, you'd be cacking yourself, they're faster and much more formidably armed than you. Kangaroos and ostriches might appear silly, but they kicked people to death before. Embarrassing or not, the truth is that without our ability to create and use cars, guns, knives and even wear clothes, we'd be almost utterly useless even facing up to a mouse or a wasp in are natural weapons-free state. The problem is with conditioning-for decades books, games and portraits on dnosauria were all, bar a few really small ones, all depicted them as hairless medium-large to ginormous reptiles, and we're used to it, but the reality is that many now seem to be somewhat feathered, but I don't think the films should be "updating" their misnamed velos that are actually Deinonychus in this way now, as that would be almost changing a species in front of our eyes-and they've already lied about its size, lifestyle and misnamed it! Plus aren't they dominating these movies more than enough-you'd swear they were only five species out there that mattered for these films. I think if they want to get current and feature some feathered dinos, they should include some species they haven't done, or just mention it in a few conversations.
As most horror films are about dispensing disbelief-at least the best ones are and they do it pretty easily, that's not a problem, besides in no actuality would a dinosaur, feathered or otherwise, attack a person as they'd never meet. But a feathered dinosaur gutting us wouldn't actually be any dumber than the Gallimimus herd running past Neill an the two kids rather than trampling them like any large animal would if they were in the way, or that stupid Tyrannosaurus appearing in the visitor lobby at the movie's end without stomping its way noisily there or bringing down a wall and, dumber, going for the two dinos that have the actors surrounded, rather than the people themselves. Talk about a movie painting itself into a corner. A reboot (unwarranted as it is) could at least tidy up that stupid ending.
