The latest addition to my series of Movie Classics is the main theme from Jurassic Park by legendary composer and all round genius John Williams. This was the twelfth movie in which Williams worked with director Steven Spielberg and it is yet another masterful piece of music.


British actor and film director Richard Attenborough has died at the age of 90.

He died at lunchtime on Sunday, his son told BBC News.

Lord Attenborough was one of Britain’s leading actors, before becoming a highly successful director.

In a career that spanned six decades, he appeared in films including Brighton Rock, World War Two prisoner of war thriller The Great Escape and later in dinosaur blockbuster Jurassic Park.

As a director he was perhaps best known for Gandhi, which won two Oscars.

Lord Attenborough had been in a nursing home with his wife for a number of years, BBC arts editor Will Gompertz said.

He had also been in a wheelchair since falling down stairs 6 years ago, our correspondent added.

His family is expected to make a full statement tomorrow.

RIP Richard Attenborough.

“Welcome to Jurassic Park.”


In honor of Jurassic World coming out today, I’d like to post these Jurassic Park dinosaur gang illustrations I did a while back!

This movie is bringing out the dinosaur-crazy kid in me, and if you’re looking for a great gift for the dinosaur-crazy kid / adult in your life, you can grab a signed 5x7″ print set of these guys HERE on my etsy shop!
