JURASSIC PARK
1993, Universal, 127 min, USA, Dir: Steven Spielberg

During a preview tour of Jurassic Park, a theme park on an isolated island with cloned dinosaurs on display, a disastrous power breakdown causes the park’s vital electric fences to turn off - and the flesh-hungry dinosaurs to roam free. Skeptical paleontologists Alan Grant and Ellie Satler (Sam Neill and Laura Dern) and the grandchildren of the park owner must fend for themselves against these ancient predators in director Steven Spielberg’s bloody-fun, wildly pulse-pounding adventure. With Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough.


DANCES WITH WOLVES
1990, MGM Repertory, 181 min, USA, Dir: Kevin Costner

Union Lieutenant Dunbar (Kevin Costner, who also directed) takes a new assignment on the Western frontier, where he comes into contact with the Sioux tribe and gradually comes to identify with them, falling in love with one of their women (Mary McDonnell), hunting buffalo and ultimately becoming a full-blown member of the tribe. A traitor in the eyes of his own people, Dunbar ultimately must decide to whom his allegiance truly belongs. Winner of seven Oscars including John Barry’s nod for best score.
