Jurassic World Movie Review

“Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.”

That line of dialogue, delivered by Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm, reveals one of the key themes of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. Just because humans find the capability to do something – like build an atomic bomb or clone a prehistoric predator – doesn’t mean they should, especially if hubris and greed motivate that act of discovery.

The “lunch debate” scene between Malcolm – a scientist – and venture capitalist John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) defines the central conflict of the 1993 film. It’s also a great metaphor for what Universal Pictures has done with their Jurassic Park franchise. Just because you can make more sequels, doesn’t mean you should. Some things are better left in the past.

Enter Jurassic World, the fourth entry in Universal’s dino-driven franchise. Co-written and directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World picks up 22 years after the events of the original film. Situated on Isla Nublar, the island from the original film, Jurassic World is a fully operational, state-of-the-art theme park with astonishing biological attractions. Dinosaurs. We’re talking about freaking dinosaurs here, guys.

The luxury resort has been a tourist destination for years, with tens of thousands of guests traveling from all over the world to see these living, breathing prehistoric creatures up close. Kids ride baby Triceratops in a petting zoo while crowds cheer as the massive Mosasaurus leaps from a SeaWorld-style performance pool to devour a great white shark suspended in mid-air.

Dinosaurs TV Show

One of my favorite TV shows growing up was Dinosaurs, which ran from 1991 to 1994 and followed the day-to-day lives of an anthropomorphic family of dinosaurs. As a kid the primary reason the show caught my attention is because of the fact that all of the characters were puppets—or the Jim Henson factor. And not just because it reminded me of Labyrinth or Dark Crystal and so on; it was actually created by Jim Henson Productions along with Walt Disney Television, Buena Vista International, and Michael Jacobs Productions.

Every now and again you see a mention to Dinosaurs, but for the most part it’s one of the many lost to time. But today, today brings with it a real treat. Someone took the show’s father character, Earl Sinclair (voiced on the show by Stuart Pankin), and created a music video of him performing The Notorious B.I.G.‘s hit song “Hypnotize.”

The result is simply perfect. You’ll be amazed by how well it works. This, ladies and gentlemen, is what the internet was made for. You can check out the video for yourself below.

Dinosaur Chase wedding photo

What’s your background? Wildlife photography?

You know that popular Dinosaur Chase wedding photo where a bride and groom along with their wedding party are running in fear of a photoshopped giant dinosaur chasing them? (That’s it here up top.) Now, imagine that it’s your wedding and one of the attendees is none other than actor Jeff Goldblum, who starred in the dinosaur movie to end all dinosaur movies, Jurassic Park. You’d want Goldblum to be a part of your Dinosaur Chase wedding photo, wouldn’t you? (I would!)

Well, apparently he’d would be happy to oblige. Goldblum appeared in Pamela and Jesse Sargent’s Dinosaur Chase wedding photo when the actor and his fiancee Emilie Livingston were attending the couple’s wedding recently in Toronto.

Check out the photo here below!

Danger 5

Victory has a new name!

Dario Russo and David Ashby, the creators of Italian Spiderman, are preparing to unleash their latest creation, Danger 5. You can watch the trailer for the series here below.

The seven-episode series takes place in an alternate universe version of World War II were Adolf Hitler, much as he was in reality, is a power-mad tyrant bent on world domination. But this Hitler resembles an old-fashioned Bond villain with unlimited technology at his disposal, not to mention dinosaurs and Japanese robot soldiers.

Are We Closer To A Real Life ‘Jurassic Park’ Than We Think?

Jurassic Park

We’ve all seen the movie Jurassic Park (I assume). The method to the madness of bringing living, breathing dinosaurs back to life in that movie, was to find prehistoric pieces of amber with bugs perfectly preserved inside and extract their blood — assuming that they’ve fed on dinosaurs and contain their DNA. Though it’s likely that scientists have attempted to try this, it’s not something that many expect to actually work. Now comes word that a scientist in Canada has a whole new plan to possibly bring dinosaurs back to life.

Canada Research Chair in Macro Evolution at Montreal’s McGill University, Hans Larsson, believes the fact that dinosaurs are ancestors of birds may just hold the key. He believes that while a chicken is its embryonic stages, he can literally go in and alter this, change that, and replicate what once was, hundreds of millions of years ago.

Larsson has been studying the evolution of birds for a decade now, and truly believes that in time, he could find a way to do the unthinkable: hatch a live prehistoric creature.
