A few weeks ago I went to the Carolina Theatre for a special double feature organized by the Retrofantasma Film Series to benefit the Nevermore Film Festival. (So many things!) The films shown were Close Encounters of the Third Kind (doo doo doo doo doooooo) and Jurassic Park. And it was really fun!
I haven’t seen Jurassic Park on the big screen since it came out way back in the 90s, and though I have watched it a bazillion times since, it is always interesting to be in a movie theater and to hear the audience’s reactions. I learned some things about Jurassic Park, on this night.
For instance, some people find this hilarious:
Oddly, Jeff Goldblum, tanned, open-shirted, reclining like some Roman senator at a feast, isn’t something that I ever found notable when watching the film alone, on my couch, every Saturday night on Spike/USA/TNT. But when you watch it in a giant theater, people start laughing when this scene happens. So yeah, it is totally hilarious. I never noticed that before!
You learn something new every day.
(P.S. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY GUYS! Consider shirtless Jeff Goldblum my gift to you, I LOVE YOU ALL!)
