My favorite line is IT’S A HIGH HIDE. A HIGH HIDE. YOU HIDE IN IT. HIGH.


hearsay_and_rumour

My favorite is: “It’ll work when you love it.” “I’ll love it when it works.”


pazoned

Violence and technology, not good bedfellows!


xxStrangerxx

The man came to die. Sure there’s Shakespeare in the Park. Of course. _But give an actor “HIGH HIDE!”_


SituationCornflakes

Don’t do that, don’t do that. You’ll be dead before you know what hit you.


xxStrangerxx

God damn Schiff had DEAD MAN written all over him from jump


MyoMike

Yeah but when his time came he definitely knew what ~~hit~~ bit him.


Iamthewilrus

I'm a personal fan of >"I need something pliable [pause] >Spit. >:Hand gets spit on: >*Your* ***gum***!"


InstinctDandy

Similar to the Vince Vaughn comments above, it always surprises me that Toby Ziegler (Richard Schiff) is in this.


indyK1ng

Do you want to tempt the wrath of the whatever from high atop the thing?


joscoto

As someone who has binge watched this series at minimum ten times, thanks for this. He’s my favorite character in that show.


livestrongbelwas

Toby losing his shit in 20 Hours in America is one of my favorites. https://youtu.be/-J1NHzQ1sgc


redfiveroe

He should not have had such a terrible death.


Babou_Serpentine

He got a worse death in the book imo, but both undeserved.


Bluejay0013

What was it like in the book? And I also feel bad every time when I see him die, usually it's bad people that get eaten, but he wasn't a bad person. So I guess it makes it all more moving.


Babou_Serpentine

Spoilers for anyone that hasn't read it... From what I remember he gets pulled from the high hide by raptors (falls from it maybe?) and I believe it describes how the raptors pick his bones clean.


Bluejay0013

Well damn, the raptors climbed up there? That sucks.


Babou_Serpentine

There are some similarities but the book is much different than the movie. I liked the movie but thought the book was better overall. I would definitely give both Jurassic Park books a shot.


DistresstedAsian

I second this. I watched the first movie as a kid and loved it very much (still love it to bits til today), but when I read the original novel recently as a young adult it was a whole new experience!


Sharkbutt89

The books have the same overarching plot as the movies, but the specifics are WILDLY different. They're a pretty fun read because you know the movie by heart, so you think you know what's gonna happen.... but then it totally changes and you're like "whaaaaaaat?"


ChipAndPutt

The books are just fantastic. Michael Crichton writes a mean techno-thrilller.


Babou_Serpentine

I really liked both JP books. I thought Sphere was pretty good too and Timeline was alright. I didn't really care for Andromeda Strain. I started Congo but stopped about halfway through and never started up again. That's as far as I've gotten so far with his stuff but I have a few more like Prey and Dragon Teeth to get to.


ChipAndPutt

Sphere is my favorite, I especially appreciate its horror elements. The Lost World and Timeline are close behind.


xxStrangerxx

It was the only way.

Thank you for making me blow air out of my nose super quickly.


GitEmSteveDave

Another fun fact about the movie is I always find a way to forget that Vince Vaughn is in it, until I see him and say oh shit I forgot Vince Vaughn is in this


UnderwoodsNipple

Probably because he plays a completely not-Vince Vaughn type character.


Grasshop

I would have loved Wedding Crashers Vince Vaughn in The Lost World lol

Play a little game called "just a nip", just for a second! Just to see how it feels. Or "ouch ouch you're eating my arm".

He also has a bit part as an asshole football player in Rudy

Last practice of the regular season and this asshole thinks it’s the SuperBowl!!


KidClutchfrmOKC

His first movie I’m pretty sure and where he met Jon favreau


arcspectre17

If i remember he also did a steroid awarness video with the kid from christmas story. He shows it on his Vince Vaughn wild west comedy tour.


jurgo

Extremely early in his career.


HollywoodHuntsman

That's ok, the movie forgets he's in it too when he just disappears at one point and is never seen again


nkkphiri

That was my thought exactly. I totally forgot he was in this movie. Apparently it's time for a Jurassic Park marathon...


speedracer73

Isn’t there a beret that really steals the spotlight from Vince.


Lercifer077

I eat green berets for breakfast.


vacuumpacked

And right now I'm very hungry


P00nz0r3d

He’s literally just a dude on the trip and then at the last second is like “when shit hits the fan, I’m *the guy*” like he’s some deep undercover green beret on a secret mission from the CIA to infiltrate the island when he’s really just a econut lmao


apitchf1

Literally me every single time


magn3to_was_right

Hmmm... I wonder if that was Goldblum doing some improv that was meant to mock him.


Jreimann89

I think it was intentional karma sort of thing where he makes fun of him, but does the same thing later who knows


midrandom

I thought Malcolm was still poking fun at him, even when looking for him.


Jreimann89

That’s much funnier, I change my mind haha


TheBooHooBlues

Definitely fits the character.


postdochell

Or it was a joke written into the script..


7HawksAnd

I don’t know man, I’ve never known a writer who thought they were funny ^/s


TheBooHooBlues

Nice catch! I only rewatched the trilogy last week and didn't notice! Side note: The Lost World was a lot better than I remembered, and Jurassic Park III was *so* much worse than I remembered.


Jreimann89

Ditto


oh_no_my_fee_fees

I remember liking 3 when it came out — while hating the woman who doesn’t stop screeching for her kid (stupid noisy cunt) — and…yeah it doesn’t hold up while 2 does.


TheBooHooBlues

Yeah I wonder how much of that was down to Spielberg not directing. After watching the trilogy again I did a deep dive into the making of them and apparently JPIII never actually had a locked script. They were literally rewriting scenes up the last minute and the director seemed demoralized by the end of it. Unfortunately it shows. Having said that, I still enjoyed JPIII more than whatever the last Jurassic World movie was.


jeffdeleon

Fallen Kingdom is a B-movie with a huge budget. I have no idea how it isn’t universally despised. I literally couldn’t force myself to finish a second watch. And I enjoyed all 3 and Jurassic World. Oof.


JimiCobain27

Whatever genius had the idea to set more than half of a dinosaur movie inside a house needs a slap in the face.


jeffdeleon

It felt so claustrophobic.


JimiCobain27

Exactly, which is crazy to think about considering it's a movie based around creatures the size of cars and buildings. I have hope that Dominion won't suffer from the same issues as Fallen Kingdom.


TheBooHooBlues

My friend and I saw it in the theater and if memory serves, we walked out before it was over.


nbarbettini

I didn't, but by the end I felt like I should have.


HughJamerican

Yeah, I recognize that there are technically worse movies out there, but this one is my least favorite of them all because of the hopes I had for this franchise


NozakiMufasa

Nick van Owen and Roland Tembo (the big game hunter and leader of the rival team) are also named after the song “Roland, the Headless Thompson Gunner”. Its about two rival mercenaries in Africa - Roland and Van Owen. This is why Nick & Tembo are always at odds & rivals in the film. & notice that in the third act its these two major characters who dont appear at all.


dmcdaniel87

TIL


goteamnick

This movie is much better than it gets remembered for.


shitsfuckedupalot

I watched it on video tape over 59 times. I remember the beginning had a commercial with "what a wonderful world" by Louis Armstrong at the beginning


marslaves48

59 is so precise


EndVry

And he said *over* 59. So like... 60?


PapaSnow

69.


shitsfuckedupalot

Lmao I meant to type 50 but my fat thumb slipped and I was like "oh well it's probably more than 59 too"


Shas_Erra

I have a VHS of Return of the Jedi, taped from a late 80’s ITV. I can still remember the advert for a brand new Vauxhall Astra when they looked like a Transformer with Down’s Syndrome


Murdoch_LLC

Did yours come with Mercedes ad at the beginning? The only vhs I had growing up advertising something other than a different movie


HonoraryMancunian

I've seen it fewer than 59 times. I wonder if anyone's seen it bang on 59?


jurgo

I love reddit but its a huge hive mind with many things. TLW is a pretty great movie with a few flaws. Its missing scenes and should be an hour longer.


fontizmo

> It’s missing scenes Listen, I LOVE this movie. But I cannot and will not get over the entirely glossed over reason that the ship crashed in the universe of the film. It’s become a part of my watching tradition to say “this makes no sense, at all. But here we go!”


TopBeerPodcast

If I remember correctly, there was a scene that was only written that got cut where the raptors take over one of the ships leaving the island, killing the entire crew on board and then wreaking havoc on San Diego when the ship landed but I think it was cut for time constraints and/or budgetary reasons so they kept the missing crew and just had the T-Rex roaming around the city.


MItrwaway

Like a 90 lb girl using gymnastics to kick a 100 lb velociraptor, that for some reason stands in place, out a window? Or Julianne Moore doing the cupid shuffle to a green screen stegosaurus?


Nerrickk

I'd be interested in someone calculating the force of that kick and see what would really happen.


xxStrangerxx

The part when Julianne Moore’s face whispers oh no to her face waking up on the splintering glass to the two t-rexes dancing the Kid n Play dance on the rainy cliffs above was pure kino.


Ronem

...wha?


xxStrangerxx

It’s become increasingly clear to me that I may have downloaded the wrong acid trip.


SituationCornflakes

Duuude I downloaded Split with James McAvoy because I heard it tied into Unbreakable. I didn’t know much about the movie, only that he had kidnapped some girls. So I get 30 minutes into this romcom about bowing also called Split before I realized. I had just thought the movie started out bubbly and silly until they got kidnapped and the tone would completely change. Nope


xxStrangerxx

How was the bowling tho?


SituationCornflakes

I laughed once or twice


dmcdaniel87

I halfway understand. Kid n play dance tho?

My man


Cutthechitchata-hole

The extended cut


astoriabridge

Bring him back. And Julianne Moore. Cowards. The next movie's already gonna be the Jurassic Avengers, might as well actually get everybody.


spacembracers

Ian Malcolm spoiler: >!dies in the book. But they didn't kill him off in the first one so they could have him continue his role. It wouldn't be far fetched for them to bring him back.!<


hrg2damax02

In the next book it’s revealed he didn’t die though, he entered like some sort of coma iirc.


tintin47

He definitely dies in JP. They retconned it after the movie and Malcolm's popularity.


CDHmajora

I’m also convinced that the sole reason Hammond doesn’t die in the movie (he does in the book) is because Attenborough was cast to play him. I just can’t imagine Attenborough getting as gruesome a death as book john Hammond did :( and neither could Spielberg I reckon…


spacembracers

I just realized Richard Attenborough is David Attenborough's brother... I don't know how I never put that together.


CrepuscularNemophile

Two Knights in one family.


spacembracers

Ah I don’t remember that. I recently reread the first but haven’t read lost world in probably a decade


Acceptable_Yam4795

The book is so much gnarlier than the movie. JP the movie is a Spielberg movie through and through, complete with kids, spectacle, majestic heartwarming moments, etc. The book is a horror novel where so many people die absolutely horrible deaths in gruesome detail. Spielberg brought moments of that into the second movie like when Eddie gets ripped out of his SUV before being torn in half by the T-Rexes and sloppily consumed by them.


CJYD21

>book Shame we couldn't get Muldoon blowing up raptors with a rocket launcher


DianiTheOtter

Fun fact: Muldoon only died in the first movie because Bob Peck (the actor) had cancer and wasn't sure he'd be around for a sequel.


Satesh400

The T-Rex hunting Alan, Tim and Lex through the river and to the waterfall messed me up as a kid. Great book.


cazdan255

This seemed like an intentional joke, it got a laugh out of me as a kid.


SamL214

That’s the Bro-est looking Vince Vaughn. He definitly went a different way not that I remember him.


puglife5055

I liked Lost Works. Sure wasn’t as good as first one but was damn near impossible to top JP. It’s a hell a lot better than the sequels and the new Jurrasic Park movies with Chris Pratt


Acceptable_Yam4795

I was too young to see the original JP in theaters but the idea of going on a giant hunting party on an island full of dinosaurs seemed fun as fuck when I was little and saw TLW for the first time.


Macismyname

I was the perfect age for lost world. 5 or 6 years old with a VHS copy of Lost World with the holographic cover that showed a 3d T-rex. Man, that was the shit back then, I must've watched it hundreds of times.


Purl2562

I wore out my JP VHS!


rocket_guy150

Me to but but after I watched the first one this seemed like a good next step and It's a great idea for a JP movie and WAY better then the JW movies plus the PSX game was pretty fun also but hard AF definitely deserves a remake of some sort


555555555S5555555555

Lost World is solid until the last Act.


Took-the-Blue-Pill

I actually didn't mind the last act. It was fine, whatever, meh. The part of the movie that nearly ruined the whole damn thing was Ian's daughter using her GYMNASTICS to kill the raptor.


zaphod_beeble_bro

The structure and pacing of JP2 was weird. I remember it feeling like it dragged on. Though I did LOVE the character of Roland Tembo and hoped he would return in some way in another movie cause he survived and was one of the only decent people on the expedition.


Orisi

Steven Spielberg called Peter Postlethwaite the best actor he'd ever worked with after that role. Which is fair. I love Peter Postlethwaite and mourn his passing, he was ab amazing actor and he's never played a role poorly no matter what the film itself was like. Amazing in Romeo+Juliet. Amazing in Soloman Kane. Amazing in Inception. Amazing multiple times in Sharpe. Amazing here.


raygar31

Dude is in Inception for like 5 minutes and kills it. It’s literally the emotional climax of the entire movie too. “I’m disappointed that you tried.”


Orisi

Pretty sure he was dying of throat cancer at the time too. Man gave it all every time.


A_Confused_Cocoon

I haven’t seen the movie recently but I like it and loved it as a kid, however the one distinct thing I do remember was yeah, the movie had very weird pacing. I need to rewatch it eventually but even as a kid it felt weirdly entertaining and thoroughly boring at the same time. Still love it overall.


raygar31

It’s great till the Trex chucks the trailer off the cliff. I still love the rest of the movie, but the pacing falls off a bit there. The 2 parties march through jungle and suddenly it’s the raptor scene and the chopper has arrived. Cut back to InGen and all’s good after the raptor attack, Rex is locked up, snoozing. Then the San Diego plot point. Again, I like it, but it does add pacing issues.


zaphod_beeble_bro

It felt like the movie wraps up and then goes right back up when they arrive at the city, even Tembo disappears from the plot at that point.


CDHmajora

Problem with the last act is how impossible it is IMO, even in the script itself. Look at the boat for example. How on earth did a tree go in a rampage on the boat, killing everybody and even decapitating people who were in rooms too small for it to enter (how the hell did it eat the person driving the boat yet leave the drivers hand on the wheel, when the tree wouldn’t even fit in that room?) yet was still locked into the cargo hold by someone who mysteriously died while still holding the button? Granted, the reason why is because a scene involving raptors sneaking into the boat was cut early on. But having a scene that sets up a full act of the movie cut and no reasonable explanation to substitute it is awful structure imo. It’s the main reason I hate the San Diego scene really.


MadeSomewhereElse

He was a pretty cool character. Wouldn't like the guy in real life, but had a respect for him in the movie. Could listen to that dude say anything. What a great actor.


canucklehead200

Agreed, except for the gymnastic velociraptor scene. The trailer over the cliff bit was phenomenal


postdochell

But Chris Pratt tamed Velociraptors


IReallyLoveMyPets

I like them all, including the Jurassic World movies


BroItsJesus

I wasn't a fan of the second Jurassic world movie, but I did like the first one if only because it was realistic about the corporate greed and potential to make money outweighing the obvious risks and the tragedy that prevented the original park from opening. It was very on the nose, I thought


Apptubrutae

I liked it as a commentary on human greed when Jimmy buffet double fisted those margaritas on the run.


greymalken

My main complaint with JW2: what happened to all the dinosaurs on isla Sorna? They’re acting like there isn’t a entire second island full of dinosaurs when they’re whining about the volcano isla Nublar. Also, the plot was basically Lost World again. “Guys try to steal dinosaurs, they get free on the mainland, hilarity ensues.” Also also, how frustrating would it be to be Dr. Wu? He’s 3 for 3 in having to immediately pack up and move his lab. He should really invest in modular lab equipment and some roadies so he can pack up and set up shop anywhere. Today: Underneath a mansion. Tomorrow: Madison Square Garden. One night only.


haysoos2

There's an episode of the Paul Reiser/Helen Hunt sitcom "Mad About You" where they lose their dog, Murray. The sister of Helen's character winds up in the park looking for the dog, yelling "Murray! Murrey!", and a voice from the bushes yells back "What?!". The sister then starts yelling for "Murray the Dog!" That scene always reminds me of that episode. As does anytime I meet someone named Murray.


DuckDimmadome

This movie gets way too much hate for what it actually is. Yes the gymnastics scene is bad. Yes, the San Diego scene is unnecessary. But the Cliff scene, the camp scene and long grass scene are some of the best jurassic scenes. The cliff scene IMO rivals the Kitchen scene from the original movie.


Murdoch_LLC

My favorite thing to yell at people during hikes is: DONT GO INTO THE LONG GRASS


RestrepoMU

Absolutely. I just rewatched it, and it's a lot of fun.


HoraceGrantGlasses

Underrated movie


DrunkSpiderMan

100% agree.


Geshtar1

Jurassic park 2 is criminally underrated. Not nearly as good as 1, but it’s pretty damn enjoyable


Andreslamantis

I am 100% sure Vince Vaughn was cast because of how tall he is and how he makes Jeff look normal.


superkickpunch

This was not a great movie but Goldblum does have a couple of great lines. “Yeah ‘ooo ahhh’ that’s how It always starts. But then later there’s running…and then screaming.”


Jreimann89

Or when he says “increase your rate of climb”


raygar31

Let’s be real. His delivery of 90% of lines is crazy memorable/enjoyable. So how about a non-Goldblum delivery from that movie, that’s seared into my memory. “Don’t go into the long grass! Don’t! Don’t go into the long grass!”


KosherDill017

I say this to people all the time but no one ever gets the reference :(


raygar31

Truly tragic. People can be so uncultured.


Zahille7

"Don't go into the long grass" is forever burned into my mind. Anytime I see grass longer than a foot it always pops into my head.


raygar31

I hope that actor knows how memorable his delivery of that line was lol


MadeSomewhereElse

I yelled that at the screen during that one episode of the most recent Black Mirror season.


ActualWhiterabbit

That and pokemon really gave me mixed feelings about tall grass.


xxStrangerxx

MARRTA DEL PLLLLAATAAA


Valdularo

Enrique?!


penguin_gun

Eh I loved it. Minus the gymnastics scene and really the kid subplot in general


superkickpunch

The gymnastic scene! My god who thought that was a good idea?


DarkSideOfTheMuun

You can even see the wires that pulled the velociraptor through the window. Such a bad scene all around.


PiLamdOd

That's a scene that was probably killed in the edit. On paper the idea of the girl swinging in and defenestrating a dinosaur sounds awesome. But I think the issue comes from spending to much time on the gymnastics routine. A quick shot of her jumping into the bar, then cut to the swinging kick, would have worked a lot better.


snooggums

Somebody who failed at gymnastics.

"back then"?


etherama1

Still good. Kid is fuckin annoying tho


clangan524

I wonder if Malcolm started using "Nick Van Owen" after discovering the second team on the island. Nick is a common enough name that someone in the second group might be named Nick and Malcolm was being safe and specifying which "Nick."


rocket_guy150

I thought of that also


postdochell

I honestly can't tell if this is sarcasm


ChrisJNelson

\*Sarahs


TikTokKnockKnock

My favorite part is when Jeff Goldblum uses the binoculars backwards.


FakePhillyCheezStake

Fun fact: the name of the character Nick Van Owen is an homage to the song [“Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner” by Warren Zevon](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wRWCK9zGynA). In it, a character named ‘Van Owen’ blows off the head of the titular character Roland. Roland then returns to the world as a ghost and hunts Van Owen down for revenge.


ClavicusNitrus

Fun fact: in the Lego Jurassic World game there's an unlockable vehicle called *Nick's Van Owen*


Z0MBIExPANDA

When I was a kid, I thought he was referencing The Land Before Time. The triceratops was named Cera, but I thought it was Sarah.


post_break

I always loved that Mercedes gave him the suv model from the movie and he drove it around for years.


Tmbgkc

Is this movie worth watching?


Jreimann89

If you haven’t seen it, of course it is


rocket_guy150

I actually noticed this when I Re-watched this under apprecated movie 3 days ago


Jreimann89

I noticed Vince Vaughn eyeing the shotgun when the hunter walks away, then in the following scene it’s sabotaged, way over my head as a kid


rocket_guy150

Me to, it's a nice little detail


GitEmSteveDave

By that point wasn't there more people on the island? Initially he said that because Sarah was the only other person on the island.


ClavicusNitrus

They didn't know there were more until a little later


ApatheticDrugAbuse

Nah this was right before Ingen showed up deploying their "forces" i guess you would say.


Pvt_Wierzbowski

When I was little and I first saw this, stupid me thought his name was Nick Van Halen.

Who killed every man in the ship if the 2 t-rex are still closed?
