Michael J. Fox,
Huge advancements in scientific technology have enabled a mogul to create an island full of living dinosaurs. John Hammond has invited four individuals, along with his two grandchildren, to join him at Jurassic Park. But will everything go to plan? Especially when one of the parks' own workers attempts to steal the dinosaur embryos, and has to shut down critical security systems in the process. It's now a race for survival with dangerous creatures roaming all over the island. Written by
The storm overpowering the park has been read into as the film's theme of trying and failing to control nature. See more »
In order for Timmy to be hurt by the electric fence, he would need some part of his body touching the ground. (It can't be an interlaced fence because there are wires connecting all the cables.) Since he was still several feet up, he is just as safe as a bird sitting on a power line. Even if it was interlaced, energizing it while he gripped it with both hands would not knock him off. He would be unable to let go. After further review, the cables are connected by cords, not wire. So it could (but not must!) be an interlaced fence. At the time the sparks fly, Timmy is standing on one cable, he's holding another with both hands, and a third cable is about level with his knees. If the fence is interlaced, he would be OK as long as he doesn't touch the cable by his knees. (Or come within a quarter-inch of it!) See more »
What can be said about this movie that hasn't already been said? Who knows. We all know that this has some of the greatest special effects, even today. Also, if there's anything that can match the awesome T-Rex, it's the movie's musical score. I swear, listen to it more than once, and you're bound to see the movie yet again, if for that sole reason. It's that powerful. Oh sure, acting isn't this movie's strong suit, but who looks for acting in a Dinosaur thriller? Who?!
Anyway, I think I've made my point. Jurassic Park: One of America's greatest classics. Steven Spielberg created magic with this movie. If you haven't seen it once, you haven't seen it at all.
