Simon Masrani: You created a monster! Henry Wu: Monster is a relative term. To a canary, a cat is a monster. We’re just used to being the cat.
Irfan Khan and B.D. Wong in the sci-fi adventure film Jurrasic World (2015), the fourth and latest film in the Jurassic Park franchise. You can see my largely positive thoughts on the dinosuar-fuelled fantasy in my review here.
Who doesn’t love dinosaurs? They’re huge, aggressive, have all kinds of varieties and once ruled the Earth. And being extinct, it’s not like you can see them at the local zoo. You can definitely say I’m a fan. I quoted the original film here, a review of the 2015 film here and a display of dinosaurs that helped promoted the movie here. I also photographed a dinosaur while playing golf here, not forgetting the teaser shot I put of Jurassic Kingdom here.
I’ve always been a big fan of funny cartoons and animals so it’s no surprise that I was going to combine the two in a post at some point. And one was never going to be enough. Below are eight animal-themed cartoons that caught my eye. Do you have any pets? Are you a fan of cartoon strips? As always, please feel free to say if you have a favourite of the eight below.
And so, 22 years after we were first invited into the world of Jurassic Park, we are back peering into both the past and the future of dinosaurs. The question facing the filmmakers was how to recreate the excitement we all experienced when we first saw Tyrannosaurus Rex and co for the first time.
Jurassic World is everywhere. After sharing my Bad Animals quiz, I thought I should share these photos I took in Waterloo Station in London. Especially as I haven’t done a Gr8at in a while. How many of the Jurassic films have you seen? Do you have a favourite shot? Feel free to choose the playful one at the end.
Violence has always been about, innit, like cowboys and indians; they didn’t have Playstations and Tupac then, and there was still violence. D’yu know what I mean? So you can’t blame it on stuff; it’ll always happen, that’s the world innit, it’s made up of different types and that. Even y’know, dinosuars. Caused a lot of trouble.
