Jurassic Park
Play • 55 min

It's got awe-inspiring practical puppets, flawless CGI, fantastic performances, awesome cinematography and Unix systems (I know this!). Welcome to Jurassic Park!

27 years later, it's still the T-Rex of action, adventure, horror and sci-fi, as billionaire John Hammond and his team of scientists spend so much time thinking they could, they don't stop to think if they should.

Directed by Steven Spielberg, it remains one of his most enduring and appealing classics, and shades of his earlier classic Jaws are apparent throughout. The primary cast; Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum are returning for next year's Jurassic World: Dominion but as fun as those 'World' movies are (and I enjoy the first one very much), the pure Adrenalin, fear, sardonic wit and exquisite framing of Jurassic Park simply can never be topped by other dinosaur movies.

Many have questioned why they thought it would be a good idea to resurrect man-eating dinosaurs for a theme park, and surely humans aren't that dumb and selfish. There are humans out there that won't even wear a goddamn face mask to protect others though, so....

The truth is.... women really did inherit the Earth in Jurassic Park.

I would love to hear your thoughts on Jurassic Park!
