.., Arnie Appeared in ‘Jurassic Park The Lost World’ (1997)?
Jurassic Park The Lost World is a thorn in my side. I love it and I hate it. I love the first third, and enjoy the middle, and I dislike the final third. The last third of JP2 largely grinds my gears because it is a unashamed rip-off of the grandaddy of monster movies King Kong (1933 – in fact the structure of the entire film owes a lot to KK). But there are some beautiful touches in JP2 that only the master Senor Spielbergo could deliver. One of which includes Robin Williams, Tom Hanks, and The Governor Arnold Scwarzenegger. When the the T-rex breaks free in San Diego it eats a dog, bashes up a bus, and destroys a Blockbuster video store. Keen eyed nerds (like me) would have been quick to notice the fake movie standees in the entrance to the Blockbuster store. Robin Williams is featured in ‘Jack and the Beanstalks’, Ton Hanks in ‘Tsunami Sunrise’ and best of all…, Arnold Sschwarzenegger in William Shakespeare’s ‘King Lear‘. Shakespeare’s King Lear starring Arnie? Brilliant! Blink and you’ll miss it.
