Robocop. Die Hard. Aliens. Tremors (kudos to Brian Franczak). The
upcoming Mimic. The dinosaurs deserve better than David "Carlito's
Way" Koepp. I'm glad a tyrannosaur ate him in TLW outside of

This is a good opportunity for me to brace the list for a reliable
rumor concerning the third JP movie. Sources in the sfx industry
claim that, all posturing aside, Spielberg wants to get right back up
and running on the third JP to have it ready for midnight December
31, 1999 premiere showings. Apparently it will involve (get this) an
"ice age" which kills off most of humanity. Malcolm survives this
quite rapid ice age, as does some character played (apparently) by
Elizabeth Shue. The dinosaurs then take back their ancient realm.
Rumor goes on to have it that Koepp and "two other screenwriters"
have their ham hands on it already.
I did not make this up because I could not make up something so
stupid. So much for hopes that JP3 would be a sort of dinosaurian
"Born Free", which I nurtured in my heart after seeing the end
sequence of TLW. I'd even prefer T-Rex Dundee with Paul Hogan.
Didn't self-respecting dinosaur movies used to have the dinosaurs
*killed off* by the ice age?
I'm not interested in how dinosaurs lived
I'm just glad they're dead
