Post-70s Spielberg would have made the guy who didn't want to close the beaches into much more of a swine.
I've read the book of JP and saw the movie several times and still forgot about the hurricane.
Jaws and its dumb mechanical broke-down shark and bloody deaths still scare me ten thousand times more than any JP dinosaur ever will. I do maintain that most of the JP dinos do still look good after 25 years and it's 1993 CGI.
It's amusing to think that Crichton's book begins with a baby being torn apart by velociraptors, something you'd think Spielberg would never film, but what about Jaws-era Spielberg, who happily killed off that kid?
