How old were you then? I was 12 years old and I was so thrilled to watch a dinosaurs on screen. I watched it in a movie theater. One of the best Theaters we have in this city. I was so amazed about the fact that by using a mosquito we can create a dinosaurs! Then, I read a lot of books and came to know that it was only a fiction!

Oh dear, I can't remember! But if I base it upon your age, you are 27 now so minus 12, then the Jurassic Park was shown 15 years ago, right? I'm 25 minus 15 = 10. I was ten years old. Oooh, such a long time ago. I feel so old already.

But you are 2 years younger than I! So, you are not that old because I feel that I am a child even at this age too!

Oh I do feel immature and childish still at my age. I guess it's only my chronological age that's advancing while my mental age is so much left behind. LOL Wait...any luck on your girl-next-door crush yet ?

Same is with me! Girls at my office used to call me a child every now and then and I wanted them to show that I am no child but somehow couldn't! I thought that a guy found out that girl and the name is "April". hm, I guess he is making me fool, what do you think?

1993? um..24,i think. i was amazed at the realism,it was pretty intense for the time. i'll never forget the scene where the water was rippling in the puddle and it turned out to be a huge t-rex behind them.

We were amazed because it was the first movie in which we could see real dinos on silver screen. I can't forget that feeling and I was praying that we will find some mosquito to find blood cell of a dino and get them back here! Not to mention that I was disappointed by knowing that it isn't possible at all!

yea,it's very unlikely. even if they could find viable dna in amber,they wouldn't know what they've got unless they make one.

Yes, I've seen the 2nd and the 3rd one... About The XP, turn your head to the left (opposite of the clock movement) It turns into a face sticking its tongue...

I was 15 years old when jurassic park 1 was released . It was a threatening experience for me as we watched the movie in last show. It was my first experience to know that animals like dinosaur were looked like. I learned that they were the king of the earth in their time & they can easily destroy all humans from the earth.

Well, I was in my early 20's when this movie came out. i don't really rmember if I saw this in theatres or if I waited for it to come out on video. I do rmember I enjoyed the movie and thought it was good, but not as good as the book which I had read prior to seeing the movie. I did not really enjoy the second movie and don't think i bothered seeing the third. The book for Jurassic Park (I)on the other hand is the only book that at one point I had to set aside because it was freaking me out. I had never or have ever since had to do that with a book. If you enjoyed the movie I would also recommend reading the book.

Yes, the second and third part wasn't quite good as the first one. May be because in first movie we were not known to the fact that it is going to show that real dinos. But in second and third we were expecting something extra which they didn't provide to us! I didn't read the book though!

I was 14 years old that time when it was released in cinemas and I still have the first edition of Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park (paperback pocketbook) but its pages are yellow stained now.

I was 19 years old when Jurassic Park I was released, I watched it with my 17 year-old sister and my 16 year-old boardmate, we were both in college then and equally thrilled watching the movie. It was great!Now, I am working in a University, my sister is preparing to go abroad and my boardmate is now a Psychologist. But whenever we see each other we remembered how we jumped off in our seat when we watched Jurassic Park in 1993.hehehe

I was in the 7th grade, which would make me about 13/14. We were reading the book at the same time. After we were done reading the book, we went on a class field trip to watch the movie in the theater.

I was 16 when it came out. I think. Anyway I remember it because I went to the theater with my father to see this movie. when the T-Rex grabbed the lawyer sitting on the potty ( I have a 3 yr old at home....I can't help still calling it a potty ) my father jumped out of his seat and shouted "Whoohoo! alright" I was too stunned to be very embarrassed....looking back though it was pretty funny.
