TT Games has made a number of LEGO-based games, often LEGO versions of other franchises. These include cutscenes that recreate some version of movie scenes, which initially didn't include dialog, as seen in these collections of cutscenes from Lego Star Wars : The Complete Saga and Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. That changed with LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, but things really got fun with LEGO Jurassic World (with all Jurassic Park movies). "So, you two, um, dig up dinosaurs?"
"Actual zookeepers taking photos of themselves doing Chris Pratt's Jurassic World velociraptor taming move is a thing."
"I rediscovered my Jurassic Park dossier when cleaning out a cupboard... At around 14 years old, I tried to charm a girl by saying if she ever wanted to know anything about dinosaurs, she could come to me." (via)
Three words: Lego. Jurassic. Park.

Jurassic World has an official website, complete with safety tips, details on accommodations, webcams, and viewing times. Your adventure awaits.
Jeff Goldblum, as Dr. Ian Malcolm, utters an odd little laugh in Jurassic Park. Here it is, extended to 10 minutes. And if that's not enough, try 10 hours! But that's too straight-forward, so Soundcloud user FLIPSHOT made a dance remix, which YouTube user MrTabarnaco2 made into a music video of sorts.

Last Action Hero was released twenty years ago today. Directed by John McTiernan (Die Hard -- previously), written by Shane Black (Lethal Weapon, Iron Man 3 -- previously), and starring The Terminator Himself (um, previously), the movie was a send-up of action movie tropes and conceits.

"If we could build a fourteen-foot-tall alien queen, we’d be able to build a twenty-foot-tall T-rex"
Trespasser, a hugely ambitious 1998 first-person shooter based on the Jurassic Park franchise, is widely regarded as a disappointing failure, remembered mainly for its pioneering physics system and innovative boob-tattoo-based health bar. With his bourbon-smooth voice and an encyclopedic knowledge of the game's history, bugs, and quirks, "Research Indicates" leads us on a fascinating tour through one of the buggiest games ever commercially released.

The JP Show (Just People) ran December 3rd & 4th, 2011 at Nucleus in Los Angeles. Curated by Julia Vickerman and Brandon Bird, it was an exhibit dedicated to what people love & remember most about the Jurassic Park film series: the human characters. Most of the art works can now be viewed online. Prints of some works are available as well as a short gallery of photos from the opening night. [more inside]
Jurassic Park III comes out today and is getting surprisingly good reviews (I'm going to see it in a couple of hours)! Most seem to have the tone of "Not great cinema, but a fun popcorn-chomper summer movie". Thank god, because this has been a mostly sucky year at the movies so far...
It's raining cats and dogs this summer! GEEZ! Pearl Harbor, Shrek, and The Mummy Returns are already in the theaters. This weekend we get Swordfish, Evolution, and even Atlantis: The Lost Empire in limited release. What's next? Oh nuthin. Just stuff Angelina Jolie's been kicking around, Eddie Murphy's little pet project, something Jay & Silent Bob tossed off in the shower, Stephen Spielberg's thoughtful adult film coupled with his token bloodfest for the kiddies... Final Fantasy, Planet of the Apes, Kiss of the Dragon, a painfully predictable looking sequel to American Pie, a predictable but funny-lookin' sequel to Rush Hour, and a predictable sequel to Scary Movie, and the ever present SO MUCH MORE! I skipped half the movies coming out but those are the highlights. Is this gonna be the best summer blockbuster festival ever thrust upon the world's populous, or are we true fans of cinema about to once again take it up the ass? Whatcha think?
Dinosaurs are back in the new trailers for Jurassic Park 3. You can also read some spoilers for the movie here.
