For many of us Children of the 1980s, Jurassic Park was one of the most memorable cinema experiences of our youth.
Realistic dinosaurs are now commonplace, even on TV shows, but at the time we had simply never seen anything like it…
Personally I was obsessed with the film, watching it four times on the big screen, countless times on VHS, DVD and on Television, and even at my mates house on a dodgy VHS recording that someone had illegally filmed with a camcorder at their local cinema.
Jurassic Park centred on a disastrous attempt to create a theme park of cloned dinosaurs.
These dinosaurs then escape the confines of their enclosures and begin to terrorise the human characters.
The franchise kicked off in 1990 when Universal Studios bough the rights to the novel by Michael Crichton before it was even published.
Both the book and the 1993 film adaptation were massively successful.
