Jurassic Park (1993)
Jenna: Jurassic Park is a movie that I should let my brother tell you all about, he has so many dinosaur toys. He has a big plastic tub full of dinosaurs. Some of them make noise. There are so many stuffed into the tub that if you walk up to it and kick it one of the dinosaurs inside will roar back at you.
But I am better at remembering the story so I will still go first. There is this rich old guy who is building an amusement park on an island. It’s kind of supposed to be like Disneyland only with real dinosaurs instead of the robot kind.
After one of the worker people gets eaten by a velociraptor this lawyer guy thinks that the park isn’t safe. So the old guy asked a dinosaur scientist, Dr. Grant, and a guy who likes math and dresses in all black, to visit the park and make sure the dinosaurs won’t eat the kids.
At first Dr. Grant didn’t want to go, but the old guy offered him some money so he could keep on digging up dinosaur bones, so he changed his mind.
They take a really neat helicopter to the island. I don’t really know how all the people were going to get to the park if you have to take a helicopter. I don’t know anyone who has one. Maybe they were planning on building a bridge later.
When they get there they meet up with the old guy’s grandkids. Dr. Grant doesn’t like kids, he prefers dinosaur fossils.
They watch a movie about how they make the dinosaurs. They make them from bugs that get trapped in tree sap a long time ago. Daddy says they had dinosaur DNA in them.
Everything is going good until they take the park tour. That’s when the fat computer guy shuts down the fences that keep the dinosaurs from eating you. (He wanted to sell the stuff they make the dinosaurs from, I think they call them embryos, to another guy so he can make his own.) The dinosaurs escape from their cages and eat the lawyer guy.
The rest of the movie the dinosaurs chase Dr. Grant and the kids all over the island.
Ethan: I really like this movie. I have seen it over 10 times. My sister won’t watch it with me anymore.
My favorite used to be the T-Rex. They are good at eating people and tearing open cars. They can run fast too. The T-Rex almost caught the people in the Jeep. But it was raining real hard and the T-Rex probably slipped in the mud.
But then I saw the velociraptors. They are my new favorite. They can open doors they are so smart. I asked Daddy if they could open my bedroom door. He said they aren’t very good at opening round door knobs because they don’t have thumbs, so I’m not worried anymore.
The velociraptors aren’t afraid of the T-Rex, in the movie they jump on the big T-Rex and scratch him with their big claws. They also like to chase the kids around in the movie. They almost caught the kids, but they hid in a big kitchen with mirrors and stuff and the velociraptors got confused.
There is this one dinosaur that spits poison at people. You can’t see ‘cause the spit is in your eyes, then dinosaur attacks and eats you. I have this toy but I was mad when it didn’t really spit, it just made noise.
When they stop and find a sick triceratops they walk by a big pile of dinosaur poop. It was like a mountain of poop bigger than Daddy. It would take me all year to make a poop pile that big. Daddy said don’t even think about trying.
