… Jurassic Park.”
Do you remember where you were when you heard those words for the first time? I saw Jurassic Park in a theater on the Outer Banks in June of 1993. I drove by that old theater recently and it is now a Starbucks. There has to be a social commentary in there somewhere.
While it may not hold the same impact as the day that Kennedy was shot or the Moon landing, I have found that the first viewing of Jurassic Park (1993) does resonate to a surprising degree. Regardless, Jurassic Park is the gold standard in which I hold all movie special effects still to this day. In my opinion, the suspension of disbelief and the seamless blend of animatronics and CGI have never been better than this one film which is now over twenty years old. I guess that child in all of us stood in awe of seeing that Apatosaurus on screen for the first time.
