60 Adventurous Jurassic Park Quotes That Will Never Go Extinct

These Jurassic Park quotes will remind you just how cool the movie was!

Jurassic Park, “an adventure 65 million years in the making,” was a cinematic marvel that took us back to when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Ian Malcolm was responsible for one of the movie’s most memorable lines, “No. I’m, I’m simply saying that life, uh… finds a way.”

Producers, writers, computer animators, and 3D renders were able to help bring life to the extinct species. The Jurassic Park River Adventure ride at Universal Studios took that experience and made it even more real.

Michael Crichton wrote his signature novel, Jurassic Park, in 1990. The book became a bestseller, and Steven Spielberg adapted it to film in 1993. Crichton published the sequel, The Lost World, in 1995 with Spielberg adapting it to film in 1997. Jurassic Park III, which was directed by Joe Johnston, was not based on a new written work by Crichton but focused on themes from the two novels that didn’t appear in the first two films.

Which of these Jurassic Park quotes is your favorite?

The film grossed more money in its opening weekend than any other film. It passed the 100 million dollar mark in just nine days! The detail and real-life looking dinosaurs contributed to the movie’s success.

There were parts of the movie that weren’t so realistic, like the lab the scientists worked in. Spielberg’s representatives came to check out a leading research lab, and looked around, and said, “Steven isn’t going to like this.” He didn’t; so instead, he created an entire lab from his imagination.

Thanks to the imaginations of Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg, we got to see some wild stuff on the screen! If you are wondering why the film still looks so good when we watch it today, it’s because they used little CGI techniques. Therefore, the technology doesn’t age out like many other 90s films.
