Allie has a rudimentary understanding of the movie Jurassic Park but she just hasn't watched the film. I decided to ask her a few questions to check her knowledge.

Allie, have you ever went around the house pretending to be a dinosaur?
Uh, why would I do that? I'm not a boy. I do take classes with boys who make odd noises like that.

Nobody's perfect, but what is your favorite dinosaur?
I don't have a favorite dinosaur. I'm glad they're dead so I don't have to worry about being turned into human snack packs for roaming T-Rexes.

Ahh at least you know the T-Rex. When I was a kid, I used to watch TV shows that showed Tyrannosaurus Rex fighting a Triceratops. Of course, that's ridiculous. They lived in different periods and...
That is seriously the nerdiest thing you have ever said and this comes from the girl who reads Doctor Who fan fiction!

Uh, hmm.. that kinda stung. Anyways, back to the movie. Do you know which famous actor starred in Jurassic Park and uttered the great line "Hold on to your butts."
I have no idea. I do know you say that every time we ride a roller coaster or get on the interstate. I'm coming to realize that 75% of your catchphrases come from movies
Only 75% of the time? I'm slacking. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you think you'll like Jurassic Park?
I wouldn't say I'm a dinosaur nerd like someone I know but the trailer looks really cool and I'm pretty excited about it. Uncle Will liking it means a lot.

The day that my brother 's opinion matters more than mine will hurt me. Deeply. One of the reasons I wanted you to see this movie was due to special effects. Jurassic Park was another major step in special effects with a combination of CGI and animatronics. You might even be scared a few times.
You also said TRON was groundbreaking. I've got a bad feeling about this....

And she calls me nerdy. Jurassic Park, I'm confident, will win her over. It's an amazing combination of special effects that hold up over time and is a perfect example of what a summer "Tentpole" movie should be.
