You know that the raptor is going to jump and just miss her, but that doesn’t really help your heart when you’re watching the IMAX 3D version even though you’ve watched the movie umpteen times since its release nearly 2 decades ago. The scenes are just as spectacular and the T-Rex just as majestic. The colours do seem a bit faded compared to the recent movies, but the overall experience is just as good.
And then of course, there are the quotes. My favourites:
Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.
– Dr Ian Malcolm
Ian Malcolm: God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs.
Ellie Sattler: Dinosaurs eat man … woman inherits the earth.
John Hammond: All major theme parks have delays. When they opened Disneyland in 1956, nothing worked.
Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but John, if the Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don’t eat the tourists.
Alan Grant: Mr. Hammond, after careful consideration, I’ve decided not to endorse your park.
John Hammond: So have I.
