Mr. Spielburg,
     While your movies Jurassic Park and The Lost World are entertaining, they are
not accurate portrayals of the ecosystem in the Jurassic period. Through close
examination of the animal and plant life in your movies, my high school environmental
geology class has come to the decision that your movies are typical misleading Hollywood
fabrications of historical data.
     Our most outstanding concern is that out of the eleven varied species of dinosaurs
in both of your movies, only four were actually from the Jurassic period. One would think
that if an amusement park that was centered around a specific time frame such as the
Jurassic period would have animals and plants from that period; however, in your movies
you have placed plants and animals from the Cretaceous period in a park named Jurassic.
This would not be a big deal if the two periods were not separated by millions of years,
but how could two ecosystems separated by millions of years be expected to coexist. We
see this not as creative fiction, but as an inane idea that drastically diminishes the character
of your multimillion dollar movies.
     We feel that in the two movies both you and your team of special effect artists
went a little overboard. It seems to us that you cared more about getting a little thrill out
of the audience and raking in viewers money rather than caring for their intellectual
welfare. Where on earth was the idea thought up that if something did not move then it
could not get attacked by a Tyrannosaurus Rex. There is no way to tell how an animal
that has been extinct for millions of years processed the images that it saw, and how do
you explain the paradox that you create with the Tyrannosaurus between the first and
second movies. In the first movie a T-Rex is nose to nose with humans and does not
acknowledge their presence, but in the second movie it is stated that the T- Rex has a
sensory cavity that can track prey from miles away.
     You seem to have also overlooked the weights of the dinosaurs in order to make
the movie more dramatic. We agree with you that if a seven ton T-Rex was walking
beside a puddle of water then it would make ripples in the water and the ground would
shake a little especially if the T-Rex was running at its top speed of 35 miles per hour, but
what about the Brachiosaurs? A full grown Brachiosaur weighed between 85 and 112
tons, yet in the movies they hardly made an impact when they moved.

Essay on Jurassic Park - The Question of Control as Presented in Jurassic Park According to Arnold Pacey How could one describe the relationship between humans and nature. Perhaps it is one of control, a constant struggle between the power of the elements and the sophistication of human mechanization. Could it be one of symbiosis, where man and nature coexist in relative peace. Are we, as a species, simply a part of nature’s constantly changing realm. This issue is one that philosophers have debated for centuries. Where does mankind fit into the vast network of interacting environments and beings called nature....   [tags: essays research papers] 1230 words

Essay about Jurassic Park - Hammond would have succeeded in the planning of his park if he and his team hadn’t been so overwhelmed with greed and power. Since he would be the first to open a park of this type, he would be able to charge what ever he wanted. Was he just out for the money or did he just want people to learn about his discoveries of being able to clone prehistoric dinosaurs. One of errors that caused the park to fail was the fact that Hammond and the other designers of the park didn't think about the unpredictability of nature itself....   [tags: Movies Film] 937 words

     In Jurassic Park you even had a scene where a Brachiosaurus reared up on its hind
legs and then came crashing back down to the ground. The people standing beside it were
not affected by the event at all, but if it had really happened, it would have caused a small
earthquake in the area. You even had a stroke of genius in The Lost World that helped
you create a scene that consisted of poachers riding motorcycles between the legs of the
great lizards while they were running. We understand that some factual information can
be overlooked while making movies, but ignoring 112 tons of meat and bone pounding
along the ground is a little ridiculous.
     In Jurassic Park the dinosaurs are brought back using DNA that was extracted
from blood inside of mosquitoes that were preserved in amber, but also all of the plant life
was from the Cretaceous and Jurassic periods. How were the plants recreated if the
dinosaurs were reconstructed from blood. Plants do not bleed, and mosquitoes do not
suckle a plants chlorophyll. Knowing this, it is highly unbelievable that the many species
of plants that were in the movies could be recreated from a process that depended on
blood, which plants don’t even have.
     We anticipate your next movie to be more thought out than these two. You are
responsible for the education of the masses whether the movie is fiction or not. People
view movies as being historically precise rather thought up merely for their entertainment.
If you continue to feed misleading information into the brains of the majority, then the
people will continue to get even more moronic. If you and others with great influential
powers such as yourself does not do anything to educate instead of agitating the problem
then the ultimate blame for the downfall of our society due to idiocy will fall on your
shoulders.
