26 years old and the special effects still hold up. A fantastic bit of filmmaking.
Great film and still with a bit of magic about it. Came out just at the right time before chi was mainstream so it was almost as if they were really showing us things humans never seen before.
I went to Orlando the year it was released and they had all the props and cars from the film there. Never forget sitting in the vehicles
Thought you were talking about the Warf in the 1980s
Why do you need a winch to drag a 4x4 downhill?
The merchandise with that logo was like an impressive steamroller which willed the population into believing the film must be good. It's probably the film with the biggest ratio of tat sales>quality of actual movie of all time.
But the film was / is good. I don’t think they needed the merchandise to convince people of that.
They’ve gotten progressively worse mind.
Interesting fact: velociraptors were actually about the size of a turkey, not the 7-8ft monsters in the film.
It had some nice exposition in it but a fairly average narrative. It was overhyped at the time of its release too.
Still don’t understand how the T. rex steps over that little wall when it breaks out yet when it pushes the car back over the wall it’s a 100 foot drop.
Have only seen bits of it.
The film is average at best. I fucking loved all the merchandise at the time, mind. Mugs, T-shirts, tea towels, mouse mats, the lot. I didn't even see the film till about 2010.
First film I ever seen at the cinema, remember getting a glow in the dark turtles cup as well.
Great film, slightly spoiled now by the fact I no can longer unsee the stage hand nudging the velociraptor's arse into the kitchen.
No Steve Gutenberg, no watch
Loved it. I was a good age to see it at its release. Seen it at the old ABC with my mam.
The ones in the film are closer to a Deinonychus but Velociraptor sounded cooler.
Seems a bit far fetched to me like.
Surprised scientists haven’t tried it in real life
It was tried and tested in Fino’s years ago
Aye, just been reading about that this morning after reading about the turkey sized feathered raptors @LondonBlackCat mentions above. Both the book and film raptors totally based on Deinonychus (before they realised they had feathers).
