Why would anyone want to see "Jurassic Park" in 3D when director Steven Spielberg's blockbuster 1993 movie has been available in multiple formats for two decades?
Two words: Steven Spielberg.
And you thought I was going to say: T- Rex.
Oh, T-Rex is big and frightening especially in 3D.
However, T-Rex wouldn't exist in "Jurassic Park" if not for Spielberg, perhaps the United States' best contemporary director who can and does direct all genres (for contrast, see "...
Does anyone ever wonder
why she never wears short sleeves
Does anyone wonder
why she never eats
She says it's too cold
It's been sunny all day
She says she isn't hungry
but her stomach is fading away
Her face is getting pale
It hurts when you touch her arm
She is always in the bathroom
She is always alarmed
She starts missing school
You have a bad thought in your head
Then you get a phone call...

As I settled in the grass
and watched the trees, the sky,
I noticed a calmness, with a soft breeze.
As if the world had just sat down
and taken a deep breath
to retreat from the rushing time.
Then suddenly, the branches I viewed
were not relaxing, but rustling,
and the clouds swirled about eagerly with passion.
The tranquil scene became restless before my eyes
without actually changing pace or tone,
