Do you remember the first time you watched Jurassic Park? For many people, it brought about awe and some light gawking. Watching essentially living and breathing dinosaurs made a huge impact on audiences when Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park released in 1993. That shockwave is still reverberating through nostalgia, prompting a return to this universe through Jurassic World starring Chris Pratt.
While the latest roller-coaster ride reboot has its place, pandering to modern tastes and the appeal of over-the-top monster b-movies, the original is still the best. One of Spielberg’s most popular films, it helped spawn a generation of dino lovers and perpetuated the idea that paleontologists wear short shorts and T-Rex roared like a lion.
An indelible and indispensable piece of pop culture, it’s regarded as a modern classic and has aged remarkably well since its inception over 25 years ago! Sam Neill recently impressed with Taika Waititi’s Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Laura Dern won an Oscar for Marriage Story and acclaim for Twin Peaks: The Return. Jeff Goldblum is Jeff Goldblum.
From the breathtaking CGI to iconic film moments involving a water cup, Jurassic Park is one sci-fi adventure horror thriller that conjures up fond memories. What better way to watch it than at the drive in?
