Great news if you love orchestras and/or dinosaurs
In news that is sure to sexually stimulate fans of both prehistoric land-mammals and honking great oboes, the Royal Albert Hall will play host to an exclusive live screening of Jurassic Park on 4-5 November, with J-Wills' superlative score provided by the not-too-shabby London Philharmonic Orchestra. Tickets are available from royalalberthall.com. The only way a screening of Jurassic Park could possibly get any better would be if they added actual live dinosaurs. I'm sure there's a downside I don't see.

Dickie bows out: Rest in peace Richard Attenborough (1923-2014)

Dickie bows out: Rest in peace Richard Attenborough (1923-2014)
I was very sorry to hear about the sad passing of Lord Richard Attenborough this evening. Although I am fully aware his acting legacy extends back way beyond 1993, he'll always be Jurassic Park's creator John Hammond to me: my favourite character in my favourite movie ever. I wrote a little bit on what Attenborough brought to the role here, but I don't feel much like eulogising right now: I'm going to get busy knowing him better first. So long, Dickie, and thanks for all the dinosaurs.
