When Grant and the children settle in the tree for the night, Tim points to the Brachiosauruses and, at first, incorrectly identified them as Brontosauruses. There was actually no such creature. The animal that most closely resembles a Brachiosaur is the Apatosaur. The Brontosaurus was named when someone incorrectly matched a Brachiosaur skull with an Apatosaurus body. To casual dinosaur fans, the Apatosaurus is often misidentified as Brontosaurus. Someone who has read as many books as Tim has, however, should know better. See more »

Simply one of the greatest films of all time. How on Earth it is only rated as 7.9/10 I'll never know.
It has a great plot, structured of course around Michael Crichton's equally brilliant novel, and the graphics are absolutely superb. Jurassic Park, along with the sequel 'The Lost World: Jurassic Park', had Dinosaurs that were actually convincing. Of course, there was some artistic license involved - certain behaviours of the animals were exaggerated or entirely fabricated - but that in no way detracts from the film. They are certainly better than those in the comparably average third instalment in the franchise, 'Jurassic Park III'. Living in the 21st century (or 20th, as it were) this film gave us a recreation of these creatures that was genuinely believable.
For all their fancy graphics and obscene budgets, films such as 'Avatar' will never compare to the likes of Jurassic Park.
