Gross in infobox[edit]

The gross in the infobox does not match the source, not even close. The infobox should contain the gross for the film's initial box office release, not subsequent rereleases, etc. ---The Old JacobiteThe '45 14:12, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Can someone with knowledge of the novel please fix the section about differences between the novel and the movie?[edit]

The english in this section is/was nearly incomprehensible. I tried to fix it up as best I could, but not having read the novel, sections of this paragraph are beyond my deciphering skills. Can someone with knowledge of the novel fix the remainder of this section so as to ungibberish it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.13.32.254 (talk) 05:40, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Sorry if I didn't reply. Fixed the Dinosaurs section and am waiting for the next comments! igordebraga 02:59, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

  • I've made many small changes throughout, the language is too informal in places.
Alright. QatarStarsLeague (talk) 06:22, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
  • "The film centers on the fictional Isla Nublar" Specify it is an island, this is English Wikipedia. Or just write "a fictional island", the name is irrelevant in the intro.
Yes check.svg Done QatarStarsLeague (talk) 06:22, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
  • "Spielberg funded the creation of DTS." Specify what it is. Not sure if the sentence it is necessary in the lead, though.

  • "(including 3 Academy Awards)" Link.
See the Accolades section. QatarStarsLeague (talk) 06:22, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done
  • "as well as a landmark in the use of computer-generated imagery. " As well as in animatronics, surely?
Yes check.svg Done QatarStarsLeague (talk) 06:22, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
  • "He knew that once I had directed Schindler I wouldn't be able to do Jurassic Park." Any reason why?
Given that he was the president of a major Hollywood studio, I would assume so. I suspect it is because Schindler's List would have completed the transition of Spielberg from a blockbuster progenitor to arthouse director, so that he could not return to a tentpole film. Regardless, I cannot alter a quote to mention this, nor provide references for speculation. QatarStarsLeague (talk) 06:22, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
YesY Removed the quote. igordebraga 05:46, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
  • "as Horner complained they had no way of doing that." Too informal, "because it was implausible" or some such would be better.~
Yes check.svg Done
  • "were still used by the production for knowing how the dinosaurs should move correctly." For supervising.
Yes check.svg Done
  • "now also had an ending where the T. rex doing a "King Kong roar" "Doing" is bad writing. And does the source say "King Kong roar", whatever that is? "Roaring" is enough.
    • Yes, Spielberg describes it that way (it's the documentary from the Blu-Ray). Anyway, YesY Tried to reword it a bit more.
  • "The film wrapped twelve days ahead of schedule on November 30,[5][36][37]" Why are three sourced needed for this uncontroversial fact?
YesY Cut to just one.
  • "to allow themselves to animate the characters traditionally." "Traditionally" doesn't mean anything on its own, I guess you mean as traditional stop motion animation.
Yes check.svg Done
  • During the process, Spielberg would fly during weekends" During during.
Yes check.svg Done
  • "and it was conducted a month later." And recorded, conducting doesn't mean anything on its own in this context.
Yes check.svg Done
  • "The screenplay acknowledges this when Dr. Grant describes the ferocity of the Velociraptor to a young boy, saying "Try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous period..." The source says nothing about acknowledgement, it just has the line form the film. So it is either original research, or needs another source.
Yes check.svg Done
  • "The dinosaur is depicted with a vision system based on movement.[53] Its roar is a baby elephant mixed with a tiger and an alligator, and its breath is a whale's blow.[44] A dog attacking a rope toy was used for the sounds of it tearing a Gallimimus apart.[7] The T. rex footsteps were taken from the sound of cut sequoias crashing to the ground.[11]" Many short sentences in succession, try to merge.
Yes check.svg Done
  • "holding its head high into the air (which would have resulted in its passing out)" This is outdated science. What does the source say?
YesY Removed.
Yes check.svg Done
  • We don't need all this detail, move it to Sequels and merchandise: "They consisted of the two-issue Raptor, the four-issue Raptors Attack and Raptors Hijack, and Return to Jurassic Park, which lasted nine issues. All published issues were republished under the single title Jurassic Park Adventures in the United States and as Jurassic Park in the United Kingdom."
Yes check.svg Done
  • was the only of his works he had considered a conversion" For a conversion?
Yes check.svg Done
  • Not all awards have citations.
Yes check.svg Done
  • There are overlink problems throughout. Check that words are only linked the first time they occur.
    • Yes check.svg Done
  • "One of the Ford Explorers featured in the film" Who says this particular car was used in the film?
YesY Reworded.
  • "Stanley Kubrick, the director of 2001: A Space Odyssey, contacted Spielberg to direct A.I. Artificial Intelligence." No context given. Why is it relevant?
Yes check.svg Done
  • "Filmmaker Werner Herzog was similarly impressed, citing the movie as an example of Spielberg being a "great storyteller" and that he knows how to weave special effects into coherent stories." That is not what he says, those are general statements about Spielberg's movies, not just this one.
YesY Removed.

On the way to doing all this. igordebraga 16:04, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi, I'll check back in a couple of days. FunkMonk (talk) 09:49, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Generally looks better now, though the King Kong thing seems unfinished. Also, make sure to mark every fixed issue here as done, to give a better overview. FunkMonk (talk) 22:59, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Cleaned the article a bit more. igordebraga 05:46, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

There are still a few unaddressed comments above, you may have fixed them in the article, but they should be "crossed" here as well, so I can be sure. FunkMonk (talk) 18:18, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Alright, checked them all. igordebraga 21:52, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

  • I think it looks much better now, good enough for GA at least. Passed! FunkMonk (talk) 17:50, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Suggested correction[edit]

I was adding content to the Jurassic Park (film) and every time I finished, it would glitch out, causing the page to erase the new content. Jason749 (talk) 06:55, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
