- I don't think we've ever had a Jurassic Park banner.
Were you a fan of the movie? I definitely was. Dinosaurs have always been a favorite subject of mine (as they are for many boys the world over) and whatever else you may say about this movie, it delivered dinosaurs.
Did you know the so-called "raptors" in the film were not, in fact, raptors? Apparently real raptors were active in what is now Asia, whereas the movie takes place in Montana, where the dromaeosaurid Deinonychus had its range. The creatures in the movie were modeled after the dromaeosaurid Deinonychus, so the film makers knew their dinosaurs, but I guess "raptor" was a lot easier to say than the correct scientific name.
Do you find it believable that a theme park of the sort depicted in the movie would be made in our real world if dinosaur DNA were available?
