Did you know that the majority of the Dinosaurs in the Jurassic Park films were all largely from the Cretaceous period rather than the Jurassic one? Yep, I'm going to be that person!
Like a few of my coworkers, I was incredibly excited for this weekend's premiere of the Jurassic World. Like many of the movie goers as well, I grew up watching the films and needless to say I was looking forward to the movie with cautious optimism. Aside from a few nit picky things here and there, I'm very happy to say I recommend spending the money for it. It brought back that child like wonder and nostalgia I got from watching the very first film and can definitely say I enjoyed it much more than the second and third films. It is always a great thing when being fascinated by a film or show triggers a search for knowledge, though it may be cringe worthy for paleontologists to see information greatly distorted on the big screen, all films must have sparked an interest in the field, and maybe even inspired some to study the science. It can't be so bad if it gets talks on the subject started right?
I've tried to avoid speaking of the film to avoid spoiling anything for those who haven't seen it, and instead about what what I loved about the films in general. So if you're thinking it may or may not be your cup of tea, I would say go for it, and don't nit pick the details and you'll have a really entertaining film. Now onto how much planning, materials and time it will cost me to make an adult puppet costume of a dinosaur....
