Around the JoBlo.com Watercooler! Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and more!

In this new weekly column we take a look at some of the hot conversations currently taking place around the virtual watercooler in the JOBLO.COM FORUMS. Each week we'll present you with some new conversations that you can jump in quickly and participate in. Heck, it may even inspire you to create your own conversation. Here's what people are talking about this week...

"How could the Jurassic Park franchise return?"

"I'd still love a new movie of this loved franchise, cause dinosaurs eating people is always fun. Which are your opinions of a cool story for a new sequel?"

"I've Never Seen Any Of The 'Harry Potter' Movies"

"Yes, it's true. I have never seen any of them. I've just never bothered until now. My question is; Do I need to?"

"50 Cent's weight loss for a movie"

"I read that he had a lot of his tats removed too. Gotta give him props for his dedication. Lets hope his acting has improved."

"Directors who are consistently great but have never made a masterpiece"

"There are quite a few directors I consider to be very good or even great even though they have never, in my opinion, made a movie that I quite consider a masterpiece. In other words, these are filmmakers who consistently make really good movies and/or have very interesting styles, but have never achieved the honor of making a true, 5-star masterpiece."

"Camera focal length and its implications"

"I own a 10mm and an 18-86mm zoom lens. In relation to perspective, these two lenses offer two disparate looks. The wider the lens the more distorted the perspective is in your shot, if you're going for something like Barry Lyndon in the way of flat, portrait-like shots you'd use a lens with a long focal length, which would combine closer-to-reality perspective in relation to the straight edges of the screen you are viewing the shots in and on and less depth of field"

"Pot movies"

"I just don't understand why pot movies are so popular. They're among the most frequently rented titles from my store, from Shrooms and Growing Op to the "Weeds" season sets (which I don't think most customers are renting because it's supposed to be an awesome show). From what I've seen, the comedy just comes from people acting kinda dippy after toking up. Is that it? Just rambling on and dropping the odd munchies reference?"

"What horror film would you LIKE to see remade"

"What horror film that you have seen that was for the most part rather lackluster, you wouldn't mind seeing being redone and hopefully have it's original faults remedied?"

"Does anyone wanna talk Pirates of the Caribbean 4?"

"I'm interested in the upcoming movie, but I think I may be the only one..."
