Of course the stomping T.rex in Jurassic park doesn't help matters
either. Of course they wanted the dramatic build-up for its
appearance using the ripples in the glass of water and all.

That scene always drove me nuts.  Would it even be *possible* for an
animal with the splayed-toed pedal anatomy of a tyrannosaur, walking
around on a lush forest floor well-padded with vegetation, to produce
those kind of earth-shaking thumps?

I'd have to watch it again, but wasn't that taking place on the road?
