Today we are going to look at some incredible vocabulary from the Steven Spielberg classic action-adventure thriller, dino movie Jurassic Park. Mainly because I want to go see Jurassic World in the theater! So let’s jump right in with our Jurassic Park bumper.

Jurassic Park

During a preview tour, a theme park suffers a major power breakdown that allows its cloned dinosaur exhibits to run amok.

本日取り上げるのは1993年アメリカ映画Jurassic Parkです。現代によみがえった恐竜を集めたテーマパークで、人間たちが恐竜に襲われるパニックムービーです。

Jurassic Park Vocabulary

MALCOLM: The lack of humility before nature that’s being displayed here staggers me.

GENNARO: Thank you. But things are a little different than you and I had feared.

MALCOLM: I know. They’re a lot worse.

GENNARO: Now, wait a second, we haven’t even seen the park yet…

HAMMOND: Donald, let him talk. There’s no reason, I want to hear every viewpoint.

MALCOLM: Don’t you see the danger, John, inherent in what you’re doing here? Genetic power’s the most awesome force the planet’s ever seen but you wield it like a kid that’s found his dad’s gun.

GENNARO: It’s hardly appropriate to start hurling…

MALCOLM: If I may. I’ll tell you the problem with the scientific power you’re using here. It didn’t require any discipline to attain it. You read what others had done, and you took the next step. You didn’t earn the knowledge for yourselves so you don’t take any responsibility for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could. Before you even knew what you had, you patented it, and packaged it and slapped it on a plastic lunch box, now you’re selling it. You’re going to sell it.

Tomorrow we are going to cover more vocabulary from Glee season 1 episode 9, Wheels.
