Top Ten Dinosaur Moments from the Jurassic Franchise

Image
After nearly three decades, the Jurassic Park franchise has given us so many incredible dinosaur moments on the big screen. Here on the eve of the sixth film’s (Jurassic World: Dominion) release, let's rank the ten best! 10. Owen and Baby Blue Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Let’s start with the fifth film in the franchise, Fallen Kingdom.

The Indominus Rex attacks the Gyrosphere Jurassic World We’ve already seen how dangerous the Indominus can be, and now Zach and Gray must figure out how to escape a monster “learning where she fits in the food chain”.

  "Do you know how to live 300 years?" And when he asks how, she smiles. "The same way you live one, a second at a time." The Invisible Life of Addie Larue is a story about a woman who in a moment of desperation makes a deal with a god. Specifically a god that answers after dark, and you never pray to the gods who answer after dark. She is given immortality but no one will ever remember who she is. It’s a pretty painful scenario if you ask me. However, one day, she is in a bookstore when the clerk remembers her from the day before and thus begins our story. Schwab writes a very lovable character in Addie Larue that you will root for, feel bad for, and get frustrated with. It’s really a story about a life that can’t be remembered.

Pros: Prose Characters are well written and fleshed out Story format Cons: Length; The book feels about 100 pages too long. This is

  Light Years from Home is about a family whose life was completely upended when their father and son disappear while on a family camping trip. Jacob, a twin to Kassandra and his father are abducted by aliens. When his father is sent back and is rambling about aliens, the youngest sibling Evie takes an interest in the extraterrestrial. She begins working with an online forum group studying abductions and sightings. Kassandra has become a psychologist, and the caretaker of their mother who is deteriorating with dementia. Fast forward 15 years and Evie gets a call about some suspicious readings at the lake where her father and brother went missing all of those years ago. Jacob is back. Over those 15 years the family has grown apart, but Jacob's return brings the family back together and forces them to deal with their grievances. Mike Chen weaves an interesting intergalactic war narrative into a family drama that will keep you interested, while also pulling on your heart strings. Ther
