Welcome… to Jurassic Movie Club. No, that’s not right. Kirste Park. Close enough.
This week Dan and Leon set Kirste the task of watching the 1993 classic Jurassic Park. Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and even Jeff Goldblum gallivant around a tropical island having a whale of a time. Except they don’t because there’s dinosaurs everywhere. What would be a 4 year old’s dream, turns into a nightmare. And rightfully so. This movie highlights the fact that, at least in Steven Spielberg’s eyes, dinosaurs are certainly more than just plush toy stars.
So what did Kirste think? After some initial hesitation (“it was a bit slow to begin with”) she finally got into it. “In the end, it was like being on a rollercoaster at a theme park.” Fairly high praise there, for someone who didn’t enjoy a literal light speed ride through space.
