Stories about Jurassic World

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is an action-adventure, but mindless-bore would equally suffice

Back in the early 90s, when the original Jurassic Park first came out, I never got the chance to watch it right away. Make no mistake, this dinosaur galore was the biggest deal in terms of flicks making rounds back then. As a result, for years, I was mocked left, right and centre by dino-fans for missing out on this particular Steven Spielberg masterpiece. To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t in the least bit bothered by my self-imposed failure to give it a watch.

Jurassic World: A great reminiscent of the Jurassic Park

Twenty-two years ago, Steven Spielberg broke new ground in the Sci-fi genre with the release of Jurassic Park. Not only was the film a visual-effects game-changer but its likable characters, thrilling and suspenseful action sequences, and that Spielberg-ian sense of adventure made it a timeless classic.
