See those ripples in your glass of water? That’s this week’s film quiz, coming your way with questions on the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies.
We’ve only had one week off, but here’s a film quiz 65 million years in the making – with Jurassic World: Dominion lumbering into cinemas this week, (read Simon’s review here) this week’s quiz looks back over the whole of “the Jurassic era”, as no one else is calling it. As well as a round on Jurassic Park and its sequels and spin-offs, there are two rounds of trivia about movies that don’t have dinosaurs in them and are thus inferior (or you’d think so anyway!)
Once you’ve finished all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. That’s enough chuffa for now – must go faster…!
