Fifteen Years Later...

I feel it may be worthwhile to announce that only fifteen years after its acclaimed release, I have now watched the movie Jurassic Park. Fifteen years ago (at the tender age of ten) I was not permitted to see it; my parents rightly labelled it in the "too scary" category - which meant I missed out on the fright-inducing slumber parties of that year and the years following while Jurassic Park remained the coolest movie to watch.

The only reason I can think of that I waited so long to watch it is that my parents' rules live on, embedded deep within my psyche. Jurassic Park will forever be a movie Palmer kids simply aren't allowed to watch.

Sorry, Mom and Dad... I've started down a slippery slope. Next thing you know, I'll be watching Forrest Gump and Titanic.

  1. I still haven't seen Jurassic Park. Or Gone With the Wind, which I was told I could see when I was 17. At 17, I no longer had any interest in Gone With the Wind...

    heh heh, five years ago I finally watched Forest Gump. And just this past year, I watched Titanic. I think I have already fallen on the slippery slope!

    I know what you mean! Even though Dad and Mom think movies are fine for us, after awhile they aren't a big deal anymore and I forget about watching movies that were so cool back then. Aaron is always surprised to find out what I haven't seen. (My younger siblings have seen more of those movies than I have!) But Jurassic Park holds good memories for me; Aaron first held my hand while watching it. :)

  4. I haven't seen Jurassic Park, I fell asleep during Forest Gump, and I was frustrated with the inaccuracies of The Titanic. :-P As far as Gone With The Wind goes, I have only seen parts of it because the few times I have seen it was on TV, and they always air it on Sunday afternoons, and I would leave for church before it was over. I do want to see it though because I believe my great-grandmother liked it.
