10 Times Jurassic Park Made Us “Really?”

When Jurassic Park first came out, it was like having another Christmas! With some of the coolest action and visual effects ever seen on the big screen, we were totally hooked on this amazing world and all the fantastic creations that lived there, so much so we are so proud to have developed our very own collection of Jurassic Park TShirts, however…



Some things have also stuck with us that we would like to quickly get off our chest,. PErhaps you have seen these quirks too? Take a look at our top ten times Jurassic Park made us ‘REALLY?”.

Sit back and enjoy some of our most memorable times Jurassic Park made us go… ‘Really?’.

Not our first one is a bit of a classic and quite how this ever slipped the net, we have no idea!
Remember when Nedry is watching the live footage of the dock worker so he can plan his escape? Well… you can actually see it’s simply a video playing with a play bar and pause function. Really?


It’s amazing how much can change overnight,, right? Buuuut maybe not this much. If you look closely, when Alan, Tim and Lex first make their way up to the tree for safety and rest, the tree is pretty bare. Skip forward to the next morning when they are woken by the Brachiosaurus and suddenly the tree is lush with leaves and life. Really?


If Jurassic Park were real, they would have way bigger issues than they end up with! Towards the start of the film when they first arrive through the legendary gates of the park, you might have spotted that the main fence seems to have a whole lot missing on the left. They could just walk out! Really?


Time and a place man! We totally get that Donald Gennaro must have been scared when the T-Rex went full fury on the place, by leaving the Tim and Lex in the car to go hide in a toilet block made of paper and plywood (we assume!) for safety and actually sitting on the loo. Really?


You can try and fool us, but we dino-saw it! Remember when the Dilophosaurus is haunting Nedry in the rain? Just before it gives us its big reveal, if you look closely you can see the strings holding it’s ‘flaps’ down. Really?


Okay, forgive us but this one is pretty nerdy! It’s safe to say that Spielberg used a fair share of dramatic license when creating this 90s classic, however, it seems this one thing has really changed the way pretty much an entire generation see a species. We’re talking about the Velociraptors. In reality, these hunting masters were no bigger than a large Turkey and had feathers instead of the 6-foot high scare-fests we’re shown in the film. Spielberg knew this and lied… Really?


This one has always smelt a bit funny to us, excuse the pun. When they leap out the truck go to help the sick Triceratops and Jeff says the iconic line ‘That is one big pile of s**t!’, well it’s not just big, but it’s HUGE! It appears that the poor animal has parked around half it’s body mass in one go giant. Really?


Our next one would have never happened if everyone had a smartphone on them. Turns out that while the clever boffins in the lab could bring back to life pre-historic beasts, their spelling perhaps needed a brush-up. Looks closely at the labels in the lab, they have misspelt Tyrannosaurus Rex AND Stegosaurus. Oops!


One we just can’t leg-o! Remember the scene when the T-Rex has started ripping apart the fence, then poor Goat’s leg then slams into the clear roof of the truck with Tem, Lex and Donald in? Well, watch closely because just a few seconds later when Donald decides to make a break for it, you can see that the leg is no longer on the roof!


Who is it for Hammond? So remember when they first get to the island and Hammond is showing them around the place a little? Well, the video he shows of himself with them that he interacts with… who is this for? Seems like this trick would be more of a one-time deal unless he will be hanging around there for every time is it played to guests. We mean…. really?


So there you have them, folks! Sure, Jurassic Park isn’t perfect as we’ve seen but would we change it? Not a chance! We love all the little elements of this total groundbreaking movie classic and that’s what makes it so special.

Our Top Films To Watch in 2015!

Hello movie lovers! With a new year starting to get into the swing of things, 2015 not only promises to bring us the hover boards from back to the future, but a whole year ahead of us full of even more amazing films for us to sink our cinematic teeth into!

So! What can we expect from 2015? Well….it turns out a whoooooole lot and plenty with some classic retro heritage with iconic superheroes and stories to boot.

Take a peep at some of our top films to watch out for in 2015….

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

There back folks! This Summer will see the next installment of the action-packed superhero fest The Avengers. With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron, a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. However, his plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the main enemy and sets out to eradicate them from Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, along with support from Nick Fury and Maria Hill, to stop him from enacting his plans. Along the way, the Avengers encounter the powerful twins, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, as well as the familiar Vision. Hold on tight!

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

Okay this is pretty big folks! Star Wars Episode VII is the first of three new Star Wars film from Disney since they took the reins and purchased Lucasfilm back in late 2012. Featuring some all-new faces as well as a few familiar names, this upcoming release will take place a cool 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi and is sure to be back with a bang and set us up for the next phase of the Star Wars story.

Jurassic World

Wow! Possible one of the longest films in the making, this fourth dino-tastic film from Universal Pictures was originally meant to come just four years after the release of Jurassic Park 3 back in 2001! Since then the script and story has been reworked, changed, adapted and now finally shot over ten years on. Taking place twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar, off of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park now known as Jurassic World. This new park is owned by the Masrani Global Corporation. Owen (Chris Pratt), a member of the park’s on-site staff, conducts behavioural research on the Velociraptors. At the corporation’s request, the park’s geneticists create a genetically modified hybrid dinosaur to boost visitor attendance, but it soon runs wild on the island.

Terminator: Genisys

Arnie’s back!! Yep the cool and cold Terminator is back in action and is set to shake up things a bit. This is certainly one to watch out for for fans of the previous Terminator releases as it has been coined to ‘reset’ the other story, acting as a sequel, prequel.
In 2029, John Connor, leader of the Resistance, continues the war against the machines. At the Los Angeles’ offensive, John’s fears of the unknown future begin to emerge when John is notified by his army unit, Tech-Com, that Skynet will attack him from two fronts, past and future, and will ultimately change warfare forever.  On the verge of winning the war against Skynet, Connor sends his trusted lieutenant Kyle Reese back through time to save his mother’s life and ensure his own existence. However, Kyle finds the original past changed.
After being orphaned at age nine by a T-800, sent to kill her when she was young to prevent the future, Sarah Connor has been brought up by another Terminator T-800 programmed to protect her. This Terminator has then trained her to face her destiny, which she adamantly tries to reject. Now, Kyle and Sarah have to escape the new T-800 and the T-1000 sent by Skynet to kill them, with the help of the old Terminator. Mad we know.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2

If like us you’ve seen all the previous films, naturally this next instalment of Suzanne Collins adapted awesomeness is a must-see! Let the battle between the districts and the capitol continue!

Furious 7

After defeating Owen Shaw and his crew, Dominic, Brian O’Conner and the rest of the crew are able to return to the United States and live the normal life again as they had wanted, but Owen’s older brother, Ian Shaw (Jason Statham), is after Dominic, seeking revenge for the death of his brother, putting the entire crew in danger once more. After learning of Han’s death, the crew sets out to find the man who killed one of their own, before he finds them first. Perhaps not something for a nice romantic night out by hey, not everything can be all smiles and country walks :).

Inside Out

Now this looks amazing! Do you ever feel like there are lots of different voices and emotions inside your head? Okay maybe not literally but perhaps maybe decisions are harder because not everyone….sorry not every emotion in there can agree? Well this is the one or you!
Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

So there they are folks! Any films you’re really looking forward to seeing in 2015 that aren’t on our list? Shout them out below….
