    Sorry to stray off the current discussion but I have to say JP was one of those few movies where I shed a tear of joy. Namely the scene where they see the dinosaurs for the first time. It was a turning point in cinematic history. George Lucas himself had said after they did JP he knew VFX were at the point where he could seriouly start to work on scripts for the PT. Having been a SW fan my whole life and having seen the OT in all their original premieres, and having waited for years, JP gave me alot of hope. I knew as movie-goers we were stepping into a new realm of visual technology and things were only going to get better.

    Few weeks back we had family movie night, and we watched this with our 4 year old daughter. She absolutely loved it! Amazingly, she wasn't scared at all! During the scene with the impact tremors, as Timmy watches the ripples caused by it, her eyes just about bugged out of her head! Of course we did have the volume on the home theater system cranked!

    I think this movie did to her what Jaws did to me. The only books she wants to get out of the library are books about dinosaurs! :D

    This, I think, is the sign you're raising a child correctly. ;) :D

    John Williams set for Jurassic Park IV?

    Williams, now 76, was conductor of the Pops from 1980 to 1993. According to industry reports, he remains a busy man, with soundtracks for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," "Jurassic Park IV," and "Superman: Man of Steel" all scheduled for his touch.

    I took it to mean that his themes would be used. I highly doubt he'd come back to score it unless Spielberg was at the helm.
