Tonight while watching TV, I was torn having to decide between two shows. These are the shows: Jurassic Park 3 and The Firm. It was hard. Now, to make this decision, one might weigh out the pros & cons of each show.
Now, take Jurassic Park 3. Dinosaurs are cool. It's action adventure, which I love. Sam Neil is a really good actor. Michael Crichton, yeah, yeah.
On the other hand, Jurassic Park 3 is absolutely ridiculous. I mean, it's just awful. The script was written by a monkey and basically, nothing is believable. True, it's about dinosaurs (which do not exist now), but I defy you to bring me anyone who didn't sit during the first one, stunned, mouth agape, and then have nightmares of velociraptors in the days and weeks to follow. Also, to his credit, it's important to mention that Michael Crichton did NOT write JP 3. But still. Dinosaurs are cool.
So then there's The Firm. Tom Cruise is entertaining and runs really fast. Written by John Grisham. I'm a fan. (How many times have i seen and read Pelican Brief?? Interestingly, JP & PB both came out in 1993,) I mean, it has Gene Hackman, Wilford Brimley?? ALL the makings for a good legal thriller.
Well, I went back and forth. Few minutes here, few minutes there. Here, there, here, there, back and forth, again and again, etc, until I gave up and chose one. I'm ashamed, I admit, but in the end, as we all predicted, dinosaurs won me over.
The real shame in this, though, is that I had just seen it, as it was on last night too. *hanging head*
