Top 10 Moments: Jurassic Park

WELCOME TO JURASSIC PARK

To steal a line from Seth MacFarlane, Jurassic Park needs no introduction…

10. GENNARO

This…  This is just unfortunate.

9. SICK TRICERATOPS

This entire scene is breathtaking but my favorite moment is Dr. Grant’s fascination with the dino’s breathing.  I’m not sure I’d be in a rush to give an actual Triceratops a hug though.

8. HOLD ONTO YOUR BUTTS

Samuel L. Jackson.  His role isn’t big but, as always, he makes the most of it.  Just think, if the system reset DIDN’T work, he might have survived.

7. T-REX VS RAPTORS

The penultimate moment in the film is fantastic.  Who doesn’t get excited thinking about a T-Rex hurling a Raptor into a fossil display?

6. LIFE FINDS A WAY

Dr. Ian Malcolm is overwhelmed by the science of that place.  It’s a quiet moment that wonderfully foreshadows what can happen when you play with Dino DNA.

5. FEEDING RAPTORS

If I had to choose between the goat or this poor cow, I’d be the goat.  Either way it’s bad but those raptors…  They’re really something.

4. DILOPHOSAURUS

This dinosaur scared me more than any other in Jurassic Park.  There’s something about the sound it makes and that vicious shaking…  head… flap… that I find terrifying.

3. CLEVER GIRL

What must have gone through his mind when he realized he was about to be devoured…  Gross…

2. VISUAL ACUITY

Don’t move and your chances of survival increase.  (Just ask Gennaro)  But NOT moving also created one of the more suspenseful moments during the big T-Rex attack.

1. WELCOME TO JURASSIC PARK

I consider this moment to be one of the most iconic moments in cinematic history.  Everything came together and we all watched in awe as dinosaurs roamed on the big screen.  Truly one of the most memorable movie moments of all time.
