Jurassic Park 3D (Movie Review)

I was sitting with a pretty, young lady some 21 years ago,  waiting to watch Indecent Proposal, when a preview came on for Jurassic Park.  I can still see the raptor’s eye peering into the kitchen window just before it fogged from the dinosaurs breath.  My date grabbed my arm tight and said, “we are definitely coming […]
