Jurassic Park: 10 things you might have missed

Paul Bullock Aug 3, 2017

You may have seen Jurassic Park a dozen times, but there loads of details that are easy to miss. Details like these...

Last week, visual effects artist Todd Vaziri took to Twitter to shatter the illusions of Jurassic Park fans everywhere. "When people watch this 24-year old mega-blockbuster," he tweeted, "they point and laugh at the totally obvious disappearing raptor on each viewing, ya?"

What, Todd? The what!?

Alongside this tweet, Vaziri also posted a slowed down Gif of the moment in question and - yep - there it is. During the final set piece, in which the T-Rex (somehow silently) stomps into the Visitor's Centre and gobbles up the Velociraptors, one of the Raptors disappears. Not eaten by the Rex, just gone. One frame, she's there, the next she's not, the following one she's there again.

Why Miami Vice Fans Should Be Racing to Watch Band of the Hand

Junkfood Cinema keeps it very manly this week.

Cursing one’s birth is a self-indulgent, melodramatic action usually reserved for ancient Greek theater. I however find myself regularly cursing the cruel circumstances that lead to my being born in 1984 and thus only getting an infantile gumming of this amazing era instead of ravenously feasting on its offerings as I do now retrospectively.

I truly believe that being only two years old when Miami Vice premiered on television is one of my greatest shortcomings as a human being. Fortunately, I was born to a father obsessed with the seminal prime time action crime series. His enthusiasm caused me to, as a teen, flash-consume reruns as if I was trying to snort them through my eyeballs. I began to lament not being old enough in 1986 to shove up my silk blazer sleeves and cruise around the neon oasis of Miami in a car I can, to

‘Jurassic Park’ holds up as well today as it did in 1993

Jurassic Park

Written by Michael Crichton and David Koepp

Directed by Steven Spielberg

USA, 1993

“What have they got in there, King Kong”, quips Dr. Ian Malcolm as a computer-driven Land Cruiser slides along its railed path through a massive wooden gate that is designed to look prehistoric, welcoming them to “Jurassic Park”. Billionaire John Hammond has done the impossible and brought dinosaurs back from extinction—then built a park around them as cheesy as any zoo attraction or Disney theme park.

For many who came of age around 1993, both the novel and the movie Jurassic Park are likely to both be pop culture milestone experiences. The film is a beautiful marriage of material and talent, bringing to life a childhood dinosaur fantasy with state of the art filmmaking technology. Steven Spielberg had been refining his instincts as both a director and producer of some of the best family-friendly adventures of the previous decade,

Cool Videos: Ridiculously silly fan-made Jurassic World parody trailer

  • JoBlo
I've seen a lot of fan-made parody trailers, but I don't think I've watched one as absurd as this Jurassic World one. Created by YouTube user Darren Wallace (the same person responsible for the Disney's Star Wars: The Force Awakens parody trailer, which is also below if you haven't checked it out yet), the video features appearances by Jeff Goldblum's Ian Malcolm (but probably not in a way you will expect) and Martin Ferrero's Donald...

17 moments of movie terror in the bathroom

From toilet-based scares to nasty encounters in the shower, here's a selection of 17 memorable moments of terror in the bathroom...

Nb: the following contains potential spoilers and scenes which may be considered Nsfw.

The scariest moments in horror are often the most intimate - this is why knives are a far nastier, button-pushing instrument of death than the gun. As the Joker famously put it in The Dark Knight, “You can savour all those little emotions...”

Intimacy may be the key to understanding why, in horror films, so many dreadful things tend to happen in bathrooms. The bathroom is often where we go to be by ourselves - either to answer the call of nature, brush our teeth, or simply relax in the bath after a hectic day at work. Equally, the water closet also sees us at our most vulnerable: naked, or at least with our trousers down, and

Kid’s Corner: Top 10 Steven Spielberg-Directed Child-Centric Films

Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg has taken movie audiences on extravagant adventures of a lifetime during his lengthy course behind the camera when impacting the film industry with his captivating on-screen imagination. Spielberg has shown an amazing range of vision and scope when tackling various movie genres that tap in the collective consciousness of moviegoers. Science fiction, social issue dramas, action and adventure, period pieces, family-oriented fantasies, comedies, war movies–you name it and Spielberg has done it on the big screen in his illustrious film career in directing, producing, writing and promoting.

Although Spielberg has done his share of adult-oriented films that cater to the sophisticated masses he is primarily known for his whimsical kid-friendly fare or at least releases that feature children in some of his escapist gems that may not necessarily be considered kiddie-coated.

The Art of Being Shady and Shifty: The Top 10 Movie Weasels

There is something about getting a kick out of the sleazy celluloid cretins that feels rather intriguing.

B.D. Wong Will Return as Dr. Henry Wu in 'Jurassic World'

B.D. Wong Will Return as Dr. Henry Wu in 'Jurassic World'
Ever since Jurassic World was first announced, fans have been wondering if any of the Jurassic Park cast members will be coming back. Director Colin Trevorrow confirmed that one of the original actors will be making a return, although it might not be someone you expect.

Here's what the filmmaker had to say in an interview with IGN.

"I know a lot of fans want to see the original characters back. They're iconic. But I respect those actors too much to shoehorn them into this story for my own sentimental reasons. Jurassic Park isn't about the bad luck of three people who keep getting thrown into the same situation. The only reason they'd go back to that island is if the screenwriters contrived a reason for them to go. But there is a character from the first film who makes sense in our world. This hasn't been announced yet, but B.

Creepy Casting: “Jurassic World” Dinosaur Fancast

Creepy Casting: “Jurassic World” Dinosaur Fancast
Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park is one of the best film adaptations of a novel ever, one of the best monster movies ever, one of the best displays of FX wizardry ever, one of the best summer blockbusters ever, and one of the best sci-fi/horror movies ever. Jurassic Park is one of the best films, period.

Predictably, the two sequels failed to live up to that insane level of precedent, and for the most part, managed to piss people off. While Jurassic Park succeeded in giving us human characters we cared about, thanks to a wonderful cast (Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Wayne Knight, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Peck, Martin Ferrero, the list goes on..), the sequels relied solely on FX wizardry that wasn’t nearly as impressive as that Spielberg’s initial entry in the franchise.

Eiff 2013: Jurassic Park 3D Review

Chances are that you’ve already seen Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. First released in 1993, where it broke box office records, won just about every technical award going, and spawned two (soon to be three?) sequels, the film was restored and re-released only last year where it once again drew out and delighted audiences in droves.

The story, as ever, sees paleontologist Allan Grant (Sam Neill) and paleobotanist Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) invited to accompany John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) out to an island he owns off the coast of Costa Rica. There they join lawyer Donald Gennaro (Martin Ferrero) and mathematician Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), in addition to John’s grandchildren Tim (Joseph Mazzello) and Lex (Ariana Richards), on a tour of Jurassic Park, where scientists have actually managed to clone dinosaurs. When a tropical storm threatens the island, however, a disgruntled employee seizes the chance to sabotage its systems,

Poll: Which Jurassic Park character is your favourite?

It’s been 20 years since Jurassic Park was released in theatres which should have given you plenty of time to memorize lines, yell at Dr. Alan Grant to drive faster or tell Martin Ferrero the unlucky lawyer that a bathroom stall probably isn’t the best place to hide from an hungry T-Rex. Not to name names or point any fingers, but maybe you’ve been quoting Dr. Ian Malcolm’s chaos theory since 1993 and helping populate Jeff Goldblum memes and fan art on Tumblr for which the world wide web is eternally grateful for.

Now that you’ve had 20 years to decide which character is your favourite, it’s time to cast your vote. Who’s your favourite Jurassic Park character? Devious Dennis Nedry or Mr. Jurassic Park himself, John Hammond? The gang of Raptors in the kitchen or the poor sacrificial goat?
