Steven Spielberg’s rollercoaster thriller, adapted from Michael Crichton’s bestselling novel, brings these prehistoric beasts back to life with a clever conceit: scientists have discovered how to harness dino DNA from fossilised amber and billionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) has created an island zoo where spectators pay top dollar to view the cretaceous giants.

I mange science fiction-fortællinger er fokus flyttet fra selve ekstrapoleringen over til mere almengyldige historier med vægt på personer og handling, men hvor science fiction-elementer, som for eksempel en futuristisk teknologi, bruges som ydre ramme for at fortælle en historie fra en anden genre.

Marker lived long enough to see his fatalistic vision become a Bruce Willis movie, ‘ 12 Monkeys ’, but the original can't be beat for sheer elegance.

This stems from Tom Knighton’s delightful fisking of Cathrynne Valente here, and my comments on it – where I said this ‘she told us that you didn’t need to know or understand any science to write hard SF.’ Apparently Valente got very upset by the comment.
