Re: Jurassic Park Fans

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

The original was great, but the sequels sucked. 2 was so-so, but 3 was just plain horrible. They really didn't need to continue it (nor did they have a reason cept for the monies). The original will always be the best.

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

It's funny you should ask this. I just recently (today, in fact) finished the original novel, by Michael Crichton. I'd always loved the original movie (and ESPECIALLY the music- John Williams cannot possibly be mortal), but never quite got around to reading the book. When the English department at my school was selling books for $.25, I leapt at the opportunity.

What I found was this: while the book was undeniably cool, and exactly what science fiction should be (there was so much science it was dubbed a "techno-thriller"), Crichton isn't exactly an amazing writer. The idea was awesome, don't get me wrong, and his work on the plot was really really good, but the actual quality of his writing was...sub-par. Maybe I'm just used to more modern writers (though does 10 years really make that much difference?), but he was seriously lacking in the imagery department. Just my opinion.

I definitely suggest reading the book, though. He goes a lot deeper into the actual science behind it all: the genetics, the paleontology, the computer system, Ian Malcolm's beloved Chaos Theory- it's all boiled down in lay-terms so the average reader can tell what he's talking about. Made me feel smart big_smile

Also, additional adventures. Lots more happens in the book, obviously. Some of those scenes (and dinosaurs) that they left out of the first movie were incorporated into the later ones, which I found pretty interesting, but here they are, all strung together with the same characters (including a few cool ones given only minor roles in the movie). In addition, if you need more incentive, the life/death situation at the end of the book is totally different than the movie: some who died in the movie lived in the book, etc. You need to read it big_smile

This is my advertisement for the day. Thank you for sitting through it.

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

I kinda liked the book better the movie, it was way more in depth as to what happened, and explained things. In the movie it was bizzare that they showed the sick Triceratops, but never explained WHY it was sick, whereas in the book it went in depth to show why and how the Stegosaurus' were sick.

They also totally changed Hammonds character in the movie.

Goodbye sweet old man, hello egotistical aristocrat with no regard for human life.

Also, they changed the lawyer a ton. Gennaro wasn't such a bad guy in the book...but they had to incorporate Ed Regis in him in the movie. Oh well.

I think Jeff Goldblum was the perfect guy to play Malcolm big_smile

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

I hated him more in the book then in the movie. Although he was a jerk in the movie, in the book he was a cowardly jerk.

I think those kids should've died. No way in HELL they could've lived.

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

I love Jurassic Park!  It's my favorite movie ever! {equal to star wars, that is.)  I can't wait for number four, which comes in 2008.  I would really like to see T rex kill Spinosaurus.

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

I love the part in the book where Hammond dies...ironically because of the stupid kids he insisted on bringing along.  tongue
Who here has read the Lost World novel Crichton wrote?  I didn't think it was anywhere near as good as the first book...

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

I've only seen the movies,    i liked em....but i don't consider myself a fan of them. I really liked the part in the first one where the guy gets eaten off the toilet....hehehe     anyways,   i also think that number 2 and 3 of the movies, weren't as good as the first...but they were still good.

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

I LOVE the first one, am okay with the second, and hate the third.  I was 8 when the first one came out and I had the art box, the backpack, the action figures, everything.

I like the book a lot better.  I hate how they kill off Gennaro (the lawyer) and Muldoon (my favorite character) in the movie.  Muldoon so did not deserve to die, since he was the only person in the film or movie who had a lick of sense.

Hey hey! What about Malcolm?

I thought Malcolm was one of the greatest characters I've ever experienced. He was so wonderfully bizarre, and the whole time he kept showing, mathematically, exactly what would happen, and of course Hammond wouldn't understand a thing he said and just kept on pressing forward. Of course, the whole thing happened exactly how he predicted it would.

Seriously, in what other book are the protagonists a paleontologist and a mathematician? Even though Malcolm didn't do as much as grant, he did, in my opinion, make the most sense out of everybody. He gave Crichton the opportunity to explain chaos theory, which I thought was just fascinating.

And those iterations between parts of the book, the things with Malcolm's quotes, were an interesting addition, too.

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

I dunno about Malcolm.  Frankly I'm agnostic about it.  At times I like him, and at other times I find him irritating.  I would rather they had saved the lawyer or Muldoon in the movie.

Oh, yeah, you're right about Malcolm having sense in the movie.  That was an unfair statement on my part.

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

Malcolm always seemed a bit to preachy about mother nature and natural selection and such.

Re: Jurassic Park Fans

Gotta give him credit though - he was right. And besides, natural selection - Darwinism - is perhaps the greatest theory in existence. I believe it, I live by it, and I hate how modern society kills it. In today's world, the weak and unfit humans are no longer killed off, and the more fit ones don't get to reproduce any more than the ones who haven't adapted. Society killed Darwinism.
