Anatomy of a Scene: Jurassic Park's T-Rex Introduction 

April 3, 2013
We don't see it until about an hour into the movie, but the Tyrannosaurus rex in Spielberg's Jurassic Park -- and the scene that builds up to its violent arrival -- is the best in the film, the 3D version of which hits theaters on Friday. We break down the suspenseful introduction -- the screaming children, the running lawyer and that goddamned flashlight -- of the film's lumbering monster. By Voice Film Club.
