Remember that annoying bastard of a dinosaur from Jurassic Park that sprayed his face open and spewed out poison at people?

Yeah, that damn Dilophosaur terrified me as a kid.

Actually, I m still scared of it.

Apparently the man who shot the video, Ricky Mackenzie, said he was exploring the Kimberley region in Western Australia when he saw a lizard on a dirt road and tried to move him.

The frilled-neck lizard wanted no part of that though and started chasing Mackenzie down and climbed up his body.

I m actually already crying.

It s extremely unlikely that scientists will ever be able to create an actual Jurassic Park with living dinosaurs, which is probably a good thing, considering how the creatures often run rampant and eat the guests in the movies.

So what s the next best option?

How about a park full of Westworld-style robot dinos.

That s the dream of Kazuya Kenemaru, the CEO of Japanese company On-Art Corp., which unveiled the world s biggest walking and moving dinosaur robots yesterday.

Unlike the synthetic androids from HBO's Westworld, the machines here are controlled by humans inside the suits.

And while similar models have been around for a while, these dinosaurs are about 30 pounds lighter and measure up to 26 feet in height.

You’d think that putting dinosaurs in any movie would be blockbuster gold, but while Jurassic Park was a massive hit, its sequels aren’t remembered as fondly.

Instead of rehashing the same ideas from the original, the sequels should have just put a talented parkour runner in a crappy T-rex costume.

We could watch Jurassic Parkour for hours.

To make this short film, Devin Graham actually visited some of the original filming locations for Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, with Calen Chan recreating Chris Pratt’s character and Ninja Nate trying to land jumps and flips while dressed as a T-rex.

There’s even a behind-the-scenes video, if you’re curious how they made movie magic again.

The ending of Steven Spielberg s Jurassic Park is perfect: The tension, the staging, and the turn of the Tyrannosaurus Rex from villain to hero, complete with the falling banner.

It s so good it seems impossible it could have been handled differently—but history tells us it originally was.

Jurassic Park fans likely know there was at least one alternate ending that was pretty close to the one we see in the film.

It took place in the main hall, as Alan Grant used a scissor lift and the giant T. Rex skeleton to knock the velociraptors away and escape you can watch a storyboarded version here .

A Facebook page called Jurassic Time claims to have found effects guru Phil Tippett s early storyboard binder which features an additional sequence with the T. Rex, presumably intended as part of the alternate ending, or in perhaps even in place of it.

The sequence has everyone running for the helicopter to leave the island, only to be confronted by the T. Rex.

Jurassic Park still holds up.

It s an excellent movie that s still fun to watch, the dinosaurs are still scary as hell, and the visual effects still look spectacular.

Even though Jurassic Park changed the way films use visual effects, the restraint it used with its own effects is what has made it stand the test of time.

Kaptain Kristian dives into the visual effects of Jurassic Park and reveals that, of the 14 minutes of dinosaur visual effects, only 6 were done in CG.

That s only 63 individual visual effects shots.

Jurassic World, on the other hand, had over 2000 visual effects shots.

Jurassic Park would not have been the same without Jeff Goldblum’s iconic performance as Dr. Ian Malcolm, chaos theory advocate and black leather enthusiast.

But though Malcolm’s a character from the pages of Michael Crichton’s source novel, he almost didn’t make it into the film.

According to a video interview conducted by Vanity Fair (on the occasion of Goldblum’s turn in Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, though of course he’s back as Malcolm in this summer’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Steven Spielberg’s film almost combined Malcolm and Dr. Alan Grant (the character played by Sam Neill) into one character.

“I [read] that Michael Crichton book—Ian Malcolm, wow!

Smart, funny, interesting character,” Goldblum says, recalling how he prepared for his meeting with the director.

“[Spielberg] was so nice... but he said, ‘You know, there’s a sort of movement afoot... to have that part removed from the script.

Thanks to movies like Jurassic Park we all think of dinosaurs as having incredibly loud roars.

Scientists aren t sure if the actual dinosaurs that these movies aim to represent could roar.

The reason for this is that it is incredibly hard to find ancient dinosaur voice boxes because they didn t fossilize well.

What dinosaurs would have used to make vocalizations would have been one of two different structures called a larynx or a syrinx.

So far paleontologists have discovered a few dinosaur larynx fragments, but there is no definitive proof that the dinosaurs could vocalize.

Finding a fossilized syrinx though would indicate that the animals could vocalize because that structure is only used for sound production.

Everyone talks about ILM's groundbreaking CGI and the transformative impact it had on Hollywood effects work back when the original Jurassic Park debuted in 1993.

Even 24 years on most of the film's computer-generated imagery stands up.

Still, a large part of the reason Spielberg's adventure has endured the test of time is thanks to the late Stan Winston's wonderfully detailed animatronic dinos.

So I have to wonder what the late effects genius would think of the following footage that leaked from the Hawaiin set of the newly named Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom last week:

With yet another Jurassic Park film out in cinemas, it’s the perfect time for busybody scientists to shatter our conceptions of how dinosaurs looked and acted.

The latest dino truth bomb comes courtesy of a new study published Wednesday in PLOS One.

It suggests that most dinosaurs, including the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex, couldn’t stick out their tongues the way many modern reptiles and birds do.

Researchers compared the mouth anatomy of a variety of dinosaur and ancient reptile species to some of their closest living avian and reptilian relatives, including alligators.

They specifically mapped out the hyoid bones, which help anchor the tongue to the body, and surrounding muscles of living species through CT scans and compared them to fossil specimens mostly sourced from China.

Contrary to popular depictions of predatory dinosaurs roaring with tongues held far out or flicking them out snakelike, they found that most of the species they studied had hyoid bones that resembled those of gators, who keep their tongues firmly stuck in place.

James Cameron told HuffPost UK that he once tried to buy the book rights to "Jurassic Park," but Steven Spielberg beat him "by a few hours."

Cameron said his version would have been "much nastier" and "would have been 'Aliens' with dinosaurs."

Cameron said after seeing the film, he realized Spielberg was "the right person to make" it because "his sensibility was right for that film."

James Cameron's version of "Jurassic Park" would have been much darker than Steven Spielberg's, at least according to Cameron himself.

The iconic director of "Aliens," "Titanic," and "Avatar" told HuffPost UK that he had always wanted to adapt "Jurassic Park."

Cameron said he tried to buy the rights to the novel by Michael Crichton, but Spielberg "beat me to it by a few hours."

On top of the groundbreaking visual effects that helped bring the stars of Jurassic Park back from extinction, the film s creators also strived to make some of the dinosaurs, including the Tyrannosaurus Rex, as accurate as possible.

Which means that Chronicle Collectibles new Jurassic Park T-rex bust is the easiest way to hang a prehistoric trophy over your fireplace.

Using an original casting from Stan Winston Studios, the special effects shop that was responsible for the look of all the Jurassic Park dinosaurs, and building the film s animatronic characters, Chronicle Collectibles has ensured that this 19-inch long female T-rex bust is the closest thing you ll get to hanging a real taxidermied T-rex on your wall.

Further adding to this mounted T-rex s realism is a custom paint job by artist Steve Riojas, who worked to match the skin textures and colours of the life-size animatronic T-rex Stan Winston Studios built for filming the vehicle attack scene in Jurassic Park.

It helps you understand why this collectable will set you back $650/£518 when it s available for pre-order starting tomorrow.

And while this replica might not be as exciting as a time-travelling safari where you travel back to the Cretaceous period to hunt a real-life T-rex, it s a much safer proposition, if you remember how all those Jurassic Park movies actually played out.

Westworld, the hit HBO sci-fi western, and Jurassic Park, the source of all your favourite Jeff Goldblum GIFs, have one thing in common: They were both based on stories by Michael Crichton.

And it turns out, that one thing makes a huge difference.

A video from College Humor points out how Westworld and Jurassic Park are basically the exact same story.

They re both about theme parks run by old men who defy the laws of God and man for their own personal gain.

Only instead of genetically created dinosaurs that get loose in the park and start killing everyone, you ve got artificially created robots who may or may not get loose in the park and start killing everyone.

Still, it s not like that s a bad thing.
