A t. rex.

Remember the novel took place in the 80s.
It was even worse then the crap the film proved wrong.

This has probably been suggested before, but hear me out.

We need an HBO miniseries that is a faithful retelling of the Novel. It would basically be a version of Jurassic Park that is longer, more violent and darker.

Would Samuel L Jackson still play the guy who does the thing?

Aside from Nedrys death the book isn't violent. And of course it's describe in more detail that's what books do.

Outside of a few scenes I'm one of the few people who didn't like the book.

I’ll meet you half way on the last sentence, I like the book, but I think the movies are better.

I honestly wanna see the "Red Rex" from the novel get some type of recognition elsewhere. I know it was rumored in Fallen Kingdom's early days but still doesn't have to be movies! Game, TV show, whatever, just gimme it!

Outside all the scientific/technical themed chapters (which could easily be cut and not hardly effect the story) the novel did almost everything better. The ending is more dynamic in the movie but at the same time pretty ridiculous and somewhat corny when you think about it (the whole movie is in some ways).
