Jurassic Park
Have you read the original Jurassic Park novel by Michael Crichton?

Re: Jurassic Park
Yes. A real page-turner.

Re: Jurassic Park
I had no idea that the original Jurassic Park was a novel. I totally need to check it out. Thanks!

Re: Jurassic Park
The Lost World is also a novel if you're interested.

Re: Jurassic Park
Are you referring to the one by Arthur Conan Doyle?

Re: Jurassic Park
No. Crichton wrote a novel that happens to have the same title as Conan Doyle's novel and I was aware of that. Sorry I didn't clarify.

Re: Jurassic Park
The Crichton book (and film) includes several nods to the Doyle.

Re: Jurassic Park
I also didn't know about that Doyle's novel. Looks interesting, so I'm adding it to my read list as well. Thanks George!

Re: Jurassic Park
I'll check it out as well. Thanks!

I'm really super hyped for Jurassic World!

I'm such a big fan of the original JP! I hope this does well. I was rather disappointed with the book though. :/

Hi Mr. Martin,

I love Jurassic Park, which lead me to my love for dinosaurs and learning the different species.

The Second movie was okay, Jeff Goldblum and Pete Postlethwaite made it tolerable for me to watch it. The third one was just ridiculously terrible.

That said, what are your thoughts on Jurassic Park and dinosaurs?

Sounds like fun!

a.k.a. The Velociraptor Whisperer
I just bought a pair of sneak preview tickets for my girlfriend and myself. We're excited that this is playing the night we'll be in Santa Fe (coming from Michigan). We've been looking forward to visiting the Jean Cocteau for quite a while and it's great that what's showing was on our to-watch list anyway. We've also been looking forward to sampling White Walkers at the bar (I hope that's still an option!), so it will be a bit of a crossover event for us.

And with that in mind, I find myself pondering: if dragons are reptiles like dinosaurs, are they technically cold-blooded? A question for the ages, I suppose...

Re: a.k.a. The Velociraptor Whisperer
New evidence suggests that dinosaurs were warm-blooded. http://www.newhistorian.com/dinosaurs-were-warm-blooded-paleontologist-says/3945/

Re: a.k.a. The Velociraptor Whisperer
I've always seen dragons (both GRRM's and other varieties) as more mammalian or avian than reptilian. But then, dinosaurs may not have been cold-blooded either.

in waiting to hear the background music score..

Cannot express how very excited I am for this film. Paired with Victor Milan's 'The Dinosaur Lords', it's shaping up to be a good year for fans of the prehistoric titans!

Also, is it still a 'sneak' preview if it's announced online? Or anywhere bar the venue for that matter?

You're dispelling the myth that the big 3 theater chains are keeping the indies from accessing the block-buster movies.

I think this is the last movie on my mental list to get to the theater to see this summer. I'm excited for it...cuz dinosaurs, but not like Fury Road.
Jun. 5th, 2015 03:37 pm (UTC)
It's the big five movie chains, not the big three; the same five "chicken chains" that ran squawking away from THE INTERVIEW before the Cocteau and the other indies picked it up.

And sadly, it is not a myth. Ever time we get a MAD MAX or a JURASSIC WORLD, it's a singular triumph... but it doesn't mean we will get the next one.

With the opening of the new Violet Crown, the whole movie exhibition scene in Santa Fe is in flux... but in a good way.

Hey George, thought this would interest you. Have you heard of the County Theater in Doylestown, PA? It's the iconic indie movie theater I grew up with and love. It's had its ups and downs but has managed to survive since the late 1930s, and still keep its same 1930s look!

Back in '94 (a few years after almost shutting down for good) they managed to get Pulp Fiction. It was a real triumph for them.

Yeah, hardly a myth considering the federal antitrust lawsuit. Keep pushing back on the big boys.

I've only a Regal within a reasonable evenings drive. All those screens yet still lacking diversity.

I have no illusions about this being a good *movie*, but I think it'll be great *entertainment*.

And I would totally be down for a "Star-Lord: Raptor Whisperer" TV spin-off...
Jun. 9th, 2015 06:56 am (UTC)
Here's hoping this is good. I'm hesitant but the director seems to be approaching the material from an interesting direction.

Which reminds me, I should get around to seeing his other movie before this comes out.

Thanks for posting about Harkness
I don't follow your LJ (I had to dig up my old account just to post this comment!) but I browse through it once in a while. Thanks so much for mentioning Deborah Harkness' books. The cover of "The Book of Life" piqued my curiosity, which led me down the path of quickly ordering the first book of the "All Souls" series. It's been a while since I found a well written series that really got my blood flowing and this was a very pleasant surprise. I look forward to finishing the series.
