Jurassic Park - Verbal Diorama

Episode 57

Jurassic Park

Published on: 31st August, 2020

It's got awe-inspiring practical puppets, flawless CGI, fantastic performances, awesome cinematography and Unix systems (I know this!). Welcome to Jurassic Park!


27 years later, it's still the T-Rex of action, adventure, horror and sci-fi, as billionaire John Hammond and his team of scientists spend so much time thinking they could, they don't stop to think if they should.


Directed by Steven Spielberg, it remains one of his most enduring and appealing classics, and shades of his earlier classic Jaws are apparent throughout. The primary cast; Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum are returning for next year's Jurassic World: Dominion but as fun as those 'World' movies are (and I enjoy the first one very much), the pure Adrenalin, fear, sardonic wit and exquisite framing of Jurassic Park simply can never be topped by other dinosaur movies.


Many have questioned why they thought it would be a good idea to resurrect man-eating dinosaurs for a theme park, and surely humans aren't that dumb and selfish. There are humans out there that won't even wear a goddamn face mask to protect others though, so....


The truth is.... women really did inherit the Earth in Jurassic Park.


I would love to hear your thoughts on Jurassic Park!

Hi! I'm Em. I created Verbal Diorama in 2018, and launched the podcast in February 2019 to rapturous applause and acclaim.... from my cat Jess.

The modus operandi of Verbal Diorama is simple: movies are tough to make! The coming together of a team of people from all walks of life to make something to entertain, delight and educate us for 90+ mins is not an easy task, and yet so many succeed at it. That must be something to celebrate.

I'm here to do just that - to celebrate movies. Their history and legacy, and why they remain so special to so many of us.

Episodes are audibly book ended by Jess. She sadly passed away in March 2022, aged almost 18. She featured in many episodes of the podcast, and that's why you can hear her at the end of every episode. The role of official feline producer is now held by the comparatively quieter Evie.

I love podcasts, and listen to many, but never my own.

I unashamedly love The Mummy (1999) and Grease 2. I'm still looking for a cool rider.
