Jurassic Park: 10 Scenes That Became Memes
Jurassic Park is one of the most iconic movie franchises of all time and a number of scenes have inspired some of the internet's funniest memes.
Jurassic Park has been apart of people's nightmares since 1990 after Michael Crichton wrote the book revolving around the cretaceous period coming alive in modern-day. After the global success of Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park in 1993, the tale continued with five movies and another (Jurassic Park: Dominion) coming in 2021.
With the franchise surpassing $1 billion at the ticket office, the fandom has only grown in size. Fans can't help themselves but post their favorite memes on Reddit, proving that dinosaurs from millions of years ago can create great social media content in 2020.
10 - Nice Park Job
The SUVs shown in Jurassic Park made fans envious. The logo, the colors, and the ruggedness of it all made viewers want to turn in their car and get something like this instead. Sadly, the SUVs didn't stay in good shape because the dinosaurs in the first film beat them up pretty good.
The attraction went awry and the T-Rex pushed the SUV off the road and into the trees. Sadly, Time was stuck in the car and wasn't able to get free until Dr. Grant came to the rescue.
9 - What If!
Just imagining that there could be a universe where dinosaurs and humans roam the same land is mindblowing. Perhaps there's a universe where dinosaurs are the main predators and humans have to stay alert in order to live.
If there is a park out there with living, breathing dinosaurs as the attraction, would it go as horribly as the movies did, or did the creators learn a thing or two from the movies? Fans can picture themselves saying "Clever girl" to the inevitable raptors they see as a shoutout to the quote from Jurassic Park.
8 - G2G!
Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom introduced us to brand new characters and a new storyline. Franklin Webb was a systems analyst turned social media guru. Working alongside Owen, Claire, and Zia, Webb tried to track and rescue Blue and the other dinosaurs from Dr. Henry Wu.
Using his image in this meme along with Bryce Dallas Howard's is perfection. Dating someone who hates the Jurassic Park franchise is a tough pill to swallow.
7 - Better To Be Early Than Late
There are a lot of ups and downs in the Jurassic Park movies. As dangerous and ferocious as dinosaurs are, no one wants to see them killed in a horrific way. Although they're all CGI and computer-animated dinosaurs, they're still viewed as animals.
In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, a volcano erupts and forces everyone to evacuate from the island. With minutes to get to safety, the last thing they see are dinosaurs being engulfed by flames. Seeing the Brachiosaurus cry for help before coming to its end was gut-wrenching.
6 - You Can't Top The Original
These comparison memes are all done in jest and are oddly relatable. Téa Leoni did a fantastic job in Jurassic Park III but it's hard to compare her to the goddess who started it all, Laura Dern as Dr. Ellie Sattler. Some say that Jurassic Park didn't need any sequels — the original movie was good as is and didn't need a continuation. But Michael Crichton did such a wonderful job with his storytelling that fans wanted more.
Téa Leoni as Amanda Kirby was an intriguing and loving character but you can't compare her to a badass like Dr. Stattler.
5 - Rex, Meet Jurassic Park
This Photoshop is so well done that it takes the brain a second to realize what's happened here. Rex from the Toy Story franchise is one of the most popular dinosaurs in film. He deserves his own spinoff.
There's Barney, Little Foot, Blue and co from Jurassic Park, and Rex from Toy Story. Unlike the T-Rex from Jurassic Park, Toy Story's Rex is much more inviting and loving. If he saw. Dr. Grant standing there, he'd greet him with a hug instead of killing everyone he loves.
4 - Name A Sadder Moment In Cinema. We'll Wait
The ending of Titanic was devastating. Not only was this based on a real-life tragedy but why didn't Rose let Jack on her boat? She watched him freeze to death and then dropped him to the bottom of the ocean as soon as he became (literal) dead weight.
It was a traumatizing love story. However, in a completely different genre of film, Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom had an equally devastating moment. Watching the Brachiosaurus stare off at the humans making their getaway from the island while it was being swallowed by lava was dreadful.
3 - Forever Nightmare Fuel
It doesn't matter how peaceful your dream is or how many happy shows you watched before bedtime, some way or another, a dinosaur will make an appearance in your dream if you're a diehard Jurassic Park fan.
Rexy popping up out of nowhere and ruining your tranquil night of sleep is enough to wake you up in a cold sweat! She's one of the most powerful dinosaurs in the franchise and could easily scare a person in the dead of night and wake them up.
2 - Jurassic Park Is Female Forward
Writers, directors, producers, and beyond need to take note: Jurassic Park is more female-forwarded than people think. Before realizing that the dinosaurs in the park had the same genetics as frogs—which allowed them to switch gender over time—the park intended for all their dinosaurs to be females.
With an all-female park, scientists wouldn't need to worry about mating, over-populating, cross-breeding, and the like. Females ruled the world on this South American islands! Sadly, there was a severe lack of judgment with science when it came out that dinosaurs could be both male and female.
1 - Open If You Dare
Gunnar Eversoll was the auctioneer in Fallen Kingdom. With brilliant dinosaurs worth millions of dollars, Mr. Eversoll was excited to be in his element selling something no one else has done before.
Sadly for Mr. Eversoll, a faulty situation in an elevator led to the end of his life after an Indoraptor mauled him to death. This meme pokes fun at popular Google searches and the inevitable death of Mr. Eversoll.
