New this month Corrected entry: Parasailing Ben and Erik was in a hurry to release themselves from the suddenly emptied boat headed towards the skerry. Nothing would have happened to them if they had decided to stay attached. When the boat had come to a rest they could have floated down and looked for something that could have helped them. Perhaps a satellite phone, flares or a life raft?
Corrected entry: When the giant pterodactyl grabs Eric, it should start to lose altitude. Even a creature with a wingspan that big cannot carry 80-90 pounds or more. Also, the baby pterodactyls cannot seem to do anything but wiggle their wings feebly when Eric is dropped to them, but afterwards, they are fluttering around him.
Corrected entry: When they're are in the stampede of dinosaurs, Udesky falls and Paul picks him up. If you look at the film, Udesky is always coming last. Paul is always about 10-20m in front, but he magically morphs behind Udesky somehow when he falls. You never see Paul Kirby fall down, so that is ruled out.
Corrected entry: After the crash Tea Leoni and the rest of the crew run and run and do some more running, and during all this they are all hitting mud puddles, creeks, dirt in general. When this is all over Tea's yellow shirt is still yellow and not black or a dark yellow - it looks as clean as it was when she was flying on the plane before the crash. Funny how everyone else looks semi-dirty though.
Corrected entry: Nothing could be seen through the green liquid in the large glass tubes, so how come the Raptor's head could be seen so easily?
Corrected entry: Judging from the way the camera pans, and how the Raptor head moves accordingly, it's impossible for it to have actually been positioned behind the glass tube. The only way this look could have been achieved is if the head was inside the tube.
Corrected entry: When Nash is pulled out of the airplane, he is pulled out by one leg. He is swung around for a few seconds by the leg, and then dropped to the ground. He drags himself for a couple seconds, and then gets on his hands and knees and tries crawling away. Both legs are perfectly fine, with no cuts or anything. How can he be on both knees if one of his legs was in the clamping jaws of the Spinosaurus?
Corrected entry: After they land on the island, mercenaries are securing the perimeter. They run off to the right side from the perspective of the plane. Nash and Udesky come back, turn the plane 180 degrees and quickly accelerate on the runway. How come Cooper exits the forest from the right side in front of them, when he actually should be on the left side several hundred meters behind them? Sure, he could have made it that far on his own, but in that case, there wouldn't be any Spinosaurus attacking, because its roar was heard several shots before from the opposite side too.Nondaime
Corrected entry: When the Ceratosaurus walks up close to the people, the subsequent shot turns to Grant & Amanda. At this moment a crew member in a hat is visible behind their backs.
Corrected entry: When Amanda is viewing the large tubes, the camera pans a large distance, showing us that there isn't anything behind the tubes, especially something the size of a raptor.
Corrected entry: In the first movie, the T. Rex always made a big thud sound, but when the spinosaurus walks (it is larger than the rex) up to them at the fence, it doesn't make nearly as much of a sound and surprises them. (00:55:35)
Corrected entry: When Eric hears the ring tone, he runs and meets his parents at a huge fence for large animals as large as a T. rex. In "The Lost World", Hammond says "site b" was where the animals were kept for a few months. There was no use for a fence that tall because even though it only takes several years for large dinosaurs to be fully grown, at a few months old they could not be large enough to need a fence of that size.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the Spino is attacking the plane on the ground, he sticks his snout into the plane. After a couple seconds he takes his head out really fast. Watch the first couple frames of the plane in the next shot in slo-mo and you can see the Spino's mouth is still in the plane.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, when the boat crew is killed, why isn't the boat itself destroyed? Yes, the top is a bit damaged but the main body of the boat is fine. A creature that could kill the whole crew in that short space of time would surely damage the rest of the boat as well. Even a modern day crocodile can easily smash a hole in the side of a small boat just using its tail.
Corrected entry: How was Ben killed? He was stuck in a tree, so the smaller dinosaurs couldn't reach him. You can see that the skeleton's legs are missing, which makes you think of a t-rex or spinosaurus, but surely that would have torn the whole body down from the tree.
Corrected entry: The guys in the movie start searching giant poo for the satellite phone. Shouldn't it have been digested, even just a bit on the corners? Plus in later scenes, before it rains, the phone is perfectly clean.
Corrected entry: The parachute they use at the beginning of the movie says DINO-SOAR on the top, but in various scenes the lettering is gone.
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.
Corrected entry: In the fight between the Tyrannosaurus and Spinosaurus, the Tyrannosaurus grabs the Spinosaur by the neck with its jaws. Now, Tyrannosaur's jaws had enough muscle power to crush bone. That bite would've killed the spinosaurus. On the other side, the Spinosaur has very weak jaws for a large carnivore-it couldn't have killed the Tyrannosaur.
Corrected entry: In the opening scene when they are flying over the island, Ben looks down at the boat crew and finds that they have disappeared. He has a camera in his right hand. He tells the kid not to worry. He puts his hand behind his back for a split second and voila- his camera is gone. He had no time to put attach it to his backpack. In a later scene, we find that Ben has been holding onto the camera the whole time. That's odd because it disappeared earlier.
Corrected entry: Grant was exposed to tear gas when Eric saved him...he didn't inhale much but he would still be coughing so violently that he wouldn't be able to speak coherently or eat without problem for quite a few hours at least.
Corrected entry: When the crew finds the video camera and then realize it is out of battery power, the remaining pilot says, 'I have an idea.' He then begins to unscrew the flashlight, presumably to put those batteries into the video camera. One problem: the video camera on hand doesn't take the kind of batteries found in the flashlight.
Corrected entry: How did that guy in the parachute die? We know they were both alive when they landed, because they filmed it. The boy gets down, the camera gets turned off just before the other guy is about to climb down, then...what?
Corrected entry: The raptors in this film have evolved, allowing the males to have quills on their necks. That's fine and dandy, but when Grant is having his dream scene on the plane, and sees the raptor sitting next to him, it has the quills. Shouldn't it have looked like the ones he saw in the original Jurassic Park? He wouldn't have known about the quills.
Corrected entry: How is it that Billy manages to beat the whole group in getting to the shore when they left him a good 12 hour boat trip away? I'm sure the navy didn't venture into the pteranodon cage to get him and then go back out to the shore.
Corrected entry: Why did they let those Pteranodons fly safely away in the end? They were already shown to be lethal animals, and now they're allowed to spread elsewhere.
Corrected entry: The boy in the film had collected urine from a T-rex to keep raptors away. There's a problem with that: dinosaurs were reptiles and were related to birds. Birds and reptiles do not urinate like mammals; they excrete uric acid together with their faeces through a single excretory opening called a cloaca.
Corrected entry: When the Navy picks up the survivors, the person on the radio says that they have 6 souls on board. They only picked up 5 people.
Corrected entry: After the plane crash and Spinosaurus attack, the survivors return to the wreck site to collect belongings/valuables, etc. Amanda starts talking to Paul about him losing weight over swimming. She says 'I hate swimming. I dont even know how to swim.' However, at the end of the film when they are in the 'bird cage,' they all fall in the river and Amanda is swimming without aid.
Corrected entry: At the beginning we see the crew of the speed boat pass through fog, when they come out the speedboat is in tatters and the crew are dead. But what killed them? They were too far out at sea, and the Pteranodons were locked in their cage.
Corrected entry: When Eric is dropped from the Pteranodon into its nest, we see that the nest and the adjacent rocks are littered with human bones and skulls. It's quite unlikely anyone has been there until now, so where did those human bones come from?
Corrected entry: When in the operations complex, there is no activity which would indicate power. In the previous movie however, Van Owen had to turn on the power to send a signal to InGen, and no-one was around to turn it off. Ludlow's team couldn't have turned it off as they weren't near the building. It wouldn't have run out - it was geothermal.
Corrected entry: How could the pteranodons survive in their enclosed cage for all the time since the park closed and Site B was abandoned? If they couldn't get out, then what did they eat?
