Corrected entry: When the pteranodon is in the bridge, it opens its beak to reveal teeth. 'Pteranodon Sternbergi' or 'Pteranodon Ingens' had no teeth.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the boy, Eric and Dr. Grant get reunited at the large fence, over Tea Leoni's shoulder you can see something moving. At first I thought it was the Spinosaurus but the Spinosaurus comes from the opposite direction. After reviewing it a couple of times on VHS it appears to be a truck driving by.
Corrected entry: After the Spinosaurus kills the T-Rex, we see an ascending angle from the T-Rex's lifeless head up to the triumphant Spino. However, that is the ONLY part of the T-Rex there. There is no body connected to it, it's just a head lying on the ground. (00:27:25)
Corrected entry: The very first scene of the movie is a plane flying by. The next shot is a guy looking at it with binoculars, and we see the reflection of the plane is right-side-up. Binoculars reflect things up-side-down. (00:01:00)
Corrected entry: The velociraptor resonating chamber that Billy shows Dr. Grant is actually a dog's resonating chamber. (00:12:10)
Corrected entry: When the Spinosaurus is chasing the characters on the boat, it emerges from the river. The Spinosaurus was supposed to be 18 feet high and it was completely underwater. Then when it attacks the boat, the Spino stands up and the river is only about 3-5 feet deep. Don't tell me the river was that much shallower a little bit further away.
Corrected entry: Spinosaurus was supposed to have straight teeth, yet in the plane sequence when there is a close up of the Spino grabbing Nash's leg, his teeth are curved back.
Corrected entry: In the scenes where they are flying over the herd, to the left of the screen you can see tracks made by continuous driving of vehicles. There was no recent vehicle traffic on the island so it should have regrown by now. (00:18:35)
Corrected entry: How did the pteranodons survive without lysine? According to Sarah's theory in the second film, the herbivores ate lysine rich plants and the carnivores ate the herbivores. However the pteranodons were in an enclosure so they could not get out to the herbivores and the herbivores could not get in to them. And the fish in the river did not carry lysine. (01:02:10 - 01:07:35)
Corrected entry: Amanda, Ben, and Eric were vacationing on the Costa Rican mainland, which, according to maps by JP experts, is 200+ miles away from Isla Sorna. So how is it possible that the speedboat in the first scene was able to make the trip by midday?
Corrected entry: All of the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park III are radically different than the ones in the previous movies, most notably the Velociraptors, who have gone from being grayish brown to having wild color patterns of blue, red, green black and white, as well as having grown mohawks of feathers on their heads. It couldn't be evolution.
Corrected entry: In the scenes with the pteranodons, they actually lift up beating their wings. In reality, these dinosaurs are designed to float with the wind, having very small and fragile bones on their wings which do not allow them to beat them. As a matter of fact, to lift from the ground, they extended their wings and hoped that the wind itself would be strong enough to carry them, thus making it impossible for them to lift from the bridge in the giant birdcage or to beat their wings next to the plane.
Corrected entry: When they are trying to take off from the island, the run into the dinosaur and blood spatters on the glass. When they crash, the glass gets shattered. You can see that there is no blood on the glass anymore.
Corrected entry: Does Eric have hair clippers? He was on the island for 6 weeks or 8 weeks and his hair is the exact same length. Also, throughout the movie every single man remains clean-shaven.
Corrected entry: The parachute is in very good condition for one that had a man eaten on it. Not even a snapped string...
Corrected entry: In the scene after they have escaped from the Spinosaurus, Dr. Grant discovers that Billy stole some eggs. When Dr. Grant wants to throw the eggs out the window you can see in the background that the weather is great and there is no "birdcage" to be seen. But when they go down the stairs they are suddenly in the "birdcage" where it is very foggy. (00:55:52)
Corrected entry: As with Tea Leoni, Eric's cut on his cheek also changes shape, from being angled to mostly straight. And I also wonder how Ben died in the parachute harness when he seemed okay upon landing in the tree.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Spinosaurus is chasing Grant and the boy along the giant fence, Grant and the boy think they have escaped by cutting through a small hole in the fence. This fence is actually a double fence, the first part appears to be made from two in steel cables and forms a mesh fence. The second part of the fence appears to be made from 10-12 inch steel tubing. After Grant and the boy escape through the hole the Spinosaurus back up, charges the fence and crashes through with ease. Grant and the rest of the survivors then dash into a nearby building and slam the door. They then lock the door with 3 sliding dead bolts about 2 inches thick. When the Spinosaurus pushes against the door, it's unable to break through the 2 inch deadbolts.
Dr. Alan Grant: What John Hammond and InGen did at Jurassic Park is create genetically engineered theme park monsters. Nothing more and nothing less.
Woman: Um, are you saying that you wouldn't wanna get onto Isla Sarnoa and study them if you had the chance?
Dr. Grant: No force on Earth or Heaven will get me on that island.
