A Frame Apart - Episode 23 - First to LasT: The Jurassic Park Franchise


New Years Eve; a holiday that, for many, feels like an arduous pain in the ass. So in order to forego the expensive bottle service, over-hyped parties, drunken stupors, and inevitable tears, we thought we’d give you another option. To celebrate the end of 2016, we decided to explore some films that embrace chaos. For your New Years entertainment, we give you a First to Last of the Jurassic Park franchise.

From 1993’s iconic game-changer all the way to 2015’s sensory overload, we dig deep into the franchise. We discuss female representation from the inimitable Dr. Ellie Sattler to Claire Dearing’s Amazing Deteriorating Wardrobe, the pitfalls of leaning too hard on CGI, the importance of a well-crafted story, and the danger of paying too much lip service to Fan culture. So hop on that chopper, and take that grossly ill-advised trip back to Islas Nublar and Sorna with us for this week’s episode.

Be sure to check out the new podcast from Emily Gagne and Danita Steinberg on all things Meryl. What About Meryl? is their wonderful new show where they go through Streep’s incredible filmography one by one discussing each film in depth. You can find them on iTunes, Twitter, and Facebook.
