We all know that the velociraptors in Jurassic Park didn’t really look like they would have in prehistoric times, but how accurately portrayed are the other dinos?
“The Jurassic Park franchise is exceedingly popular for many different reasons. There are complex characters, stunning visuals, and thrilling terror. Then, of course, there are the dinosaurs. Jurassic Park‘s unique idea of cloned dinosaurs, and its groundbreaking CGI, gave us a dinosaur film we never thought we’d have.

Man, the world really didn’t end up like Blade Runner predicted 2019 would be like, did it?

A lot of the best sci-fi films of prior decades pictured what life would be like in the years to come. Such movies asked: What would America and the world look like in the 1980s? What about the 1990s? The 2000s? Well, now it’s 2022. We’ve lived through the future. We actually know what a lot of those years were like and, as it turns out, most of those movies were totally wrong!”
