10 Things You Didn’t Know about Jurassic Park
I don’t know as anyone knew what to think when Jurassic Park, the first and original, hit the theaters. If you compared the first movie to what’s come out now you might be able to pinpoint certain moments when the dinosaurs didn’t move the same way, how they looked a bit different than what came later, and even more. But if you really nitpick that much then you’re either a critic or someone that lives to find every last little mistake in a movie while claiming to do so because you love it. To each their own and all but the first Jurassic Park that came bounding onto the screen was something of a marvel for many people. The roar of the T. rex over the THX sound system was something I remember vividly since you could hear it another theater over and had to wonder just what was going on. Once you sat your butt down in the theater to watch the movie however you understood just what people had been talking about all that time.
The first Jurassic Park was off the hook. Speaking of which, here are 10 things you might not have known about the film:
10. Between the book and the movie paleontology classes experienced a huge upswing in attendance.
Suddenly everyone wanted to know as much as they could about dinosaurs and what was real vs. what was make-believe.
9. The T-Rex had a few glitches.
When it was left out in the rain it experienced a few technical difficulties such as twitching and jerking as though it was alive. It kind of freaked people out.
