    Jurassic Park


    Watched this yesterday with the kids. My daughter (6) bailed during the first dino attack and she's probably scarred for life. My son (10) loved it. Called it "epic." I couldn't stop laughing with delight during the second hour. Spielberg lines up one amazing action sequence after another. Just the skill on display is akin to watching an amazing drum solo by John Bonham. Pure fun.
