The Great Movie Re-Watch

Jurassic Park (1993)


Steven Spielberg


Michael Crichton

David Koepp


Sam Neill

Laura Dern

Jeff Goldblum

Richard Attenborough


A pragmatic paleontologist visiting an almost complete theme park is tasked with protecting a couple of kids after a power failure causes the park’s cloned dinosaurs to run loose.


Jurassic Park is a fun movie, but I think John Williams’s score pushes it to be a good movie. I like Steven Spielberg as much as the next person and he’s a really good director, but the music in Jurassic Park is iconic.

There are so many good quotes in this film. My family frequently quotes, “Hold on to your butts.” Because of course, we do.

Nothing really problematic jumped out to me during this re-watch, though, admittedly it’s been a few days since I watched. Well, I do think they put the young girl through hell just for the stereotypical reactions. Still, considering everything else I’ve watched that barely registered.

Jurassic Park is a classic and definitely worth keeping and re-watching.
