Is "Jurassic World" Unrealistic?

At this writing, Jurassic World is in its first weekend. It had a yippie ky yay of an opening day, with $511.8 million USD. Reports are that audiences liked it, as well as many critics. People are excited about a Steven Spielberg movie, but he's not the director like he was for the first two, he's an executive producer.
Is "Jurassic World" unrealistic because its dinosaurs did not have feathers? There are many reasons this movie is unrealistic, but demanding dino feathers is itself unrealistic.
A complaint was made because the first one was good, but this is just another monster movie because it's "unrealistic" — the dinosaurs didn't have feathers. (Sorry to break it to this tinhorn, but the whole thing is unrealistic. It's a movie, done like most others, to make money and entertain people.) Although most evolutionary paleontologists believe that dinosaurs evolved into birds, there is no significant evidence that dinosaurs had feathers. Also, for Bible-believing Christians, there's an irreconcilable difference in the creation order: birds were created before land creatures. There is a passel of evidence that birds and dinosaurs lived at the same time, including dinosaurs having eaten birds.

It's a movie, not an evolutionary propaganda documentary. If you want one of those, watch BBC, or the Discovery networks on television. Oh, and realism? The whole premise is unrealistic, so the term "suspension of disbelief" applies here. Velociraptors in the movie were far too large. I guess it's hard to terrify an audience with a critter the size of a large turkey or medium-sized dog, huh? Unless you have them stampeding and eating everything in their path, or maybe have them taken up by a funnel cloud and killing people that way, like in Sharknado and its sequels. Just a thought. Personally, I'm not into many movies with large-scale killing and violence, so I'll probably skip this chop fest.
Fans of the Jurassic Park trilogy have been eagerly awaiting the release of a fourth movie, Jurassic World. This highly anticipated sci-fi film [was] released in the US on June 12, 2015. Recently a trailer for the movie was released that has created a big buzz in the media. Reportedly, the film is going to be a “big disappointment” to dinosaur fans because “unlike the 1993 original, which was praised for its attention to detail and accuracy, the new film shows portrays [sic] its Tyrannosaurus Rex and velociraptors all wrong.” One paleontologist made this comment: “The original film showed dinosaurs that were not simply roaring, scaly monsters but were active, social, bird-like animals with dynamic bodies. Now, Jurassic World is simply a dumb monster movie and there has been a deliberate effort to make its animals look different from the way we think they should.” Apparently the problem with Jurassic World is that the dinosaurs—including T. rex and velociraptor—lack feathers, and therefore the movie is supposedly completely inaccurate.
