So This Article Crept up On IGN the other day and I thought I'd share it with you . (http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/09/13/the-jurassic-park-movie-james-cameron-almost-made) He says that: "He and JP director Steven Spielberg were both after the book's film rights around the same time. "[Spielberg] beat me to it by a few hours."
"But after Cameron saw the film, he realized Spielberg was the right man for the job. "He made a dinosaur movie for kids, and mine would have been Aliens with dinosaurs, and that wouldn't have been fair," he continued. "Dinosaurs are for 8-year-olds. We can all enjoy it, too, but kids get dinosaurs and they should not have been excluded for that. His sensibility was right for that film. I'd have gone further, nastier, much nastier."
Now #1 JP IS NOT a kids movie, The Kitchen scene alone terrified me when I was a kid so I don't agree with him on that.
Now #2, and most Importantly, Knowing this Lets say in a Hypothetical Parallel Universe Cameron DID Make JP (Maybe with a Touch of Aliens like he said). Could he A) have done a good enough job to make it a good movie with the right scenario. and B) Would you in This Hypothetical Universe Go See It?
I do think He could Possibly have pulled it off But I am not so sure. (But I Love the way JP Is right now and I'm glad Spielberg directed it, No question.)
