“Raptors are smart. Very smart.”

“Raptors are smart. Very smart.”

Jurassic Park is back and this time around the giant reptiles are in 3D!

Today marks the 20th Anniversary of the beloved film so I thought I would do a little post to commemorate this day.

It was 20 years ago when my family – dad, mom, and little sister – went to see Jurassic Park in the theater. I was the quintessential dinosaur geek growing up so I was beyond excited to see this movie and couldn’t wait for the previews to end so it could officially start.

As the movie opened to the scene where the raptor drags one of the park workers into the cage and you hear the screeching, clawing and see the raw power of the beast my night was ruined – the little sister started screaming and crying!! Until this day I still resent her for making us leave the theater (not really – I exaggerate), but still, I never went back to see it in theaters.

Thankfully, it’s back! Needless to say, this time I won’t be dragged out of the theater by my parents and a crying little sister.
