The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Until I heard Vince Vaughn talk about it on the WTF podcast,
I had completely forgotten that he was in this movie.
Not a terrible movie, but if it weren't a sequel to one of the great action movies of the 1990s, and if Mr. Spielberg didn't have his name on it, we wouldn't hold it to such a high standard. Seventeen years later, there are still some memorable moments. I still feel bad that Richard Schiff (Toby from West Wing) nearly managed to shoot the T.Rex with his poison gun...(Cheri theater, Boston)

Also On Memorial Day, Through The Years

I have been to the movies on Memorial Day Monday 13 times in 24 years, but it's not a great track record.
