Major theme of Jurassic Park

The movie Jurassic Park is based on the science and technological thriller. This discusses the issue related to the risk, advancement and development of technology for the human being. In this movie, the biggest dangers are the concept that advancement in technology is directly beneficial for all human beings. Crichton raises the question about whether the technology advancement is as beneficial as we are considered, whether the advancement should be allowed and whether it provides the improvement in our daily lives and environment. Although this novel based movie does not portray the concept against the technological development, it just wants to convey the point that it is necessary to show the minor precautions related to the new technologies. Furthermore, Jurassic Park is also popularized because of the mathematical concept of chaos theory. In the past centuries, the varies laws of physics explained the logical connection between the concept of cause and effect present in nature. Before the modern physics, it was assumed that the probability of making precise long-term interpretation related to the physical system was always possible in the specific condition. The specific condition was that as long as a person understands the initial condition of the system. The exploration of chaotic system in the twentieth century completely abolished that concept. In this novel, Malcolm understanding of chaos theory represents the Jurassic Park as a “complex physical system”, will expect to progress in a random and unstable manner that will certainly become the reason of disaster, irrespective of the cautions that have been practiced.

Major theme of forbidden planet

The theme of forbidden planet movie is also based on the science and technology. In the story of the forbidden planet, the species of Altair 4 appeared as the full of mystery and dominant. Krell explores that Altair 4 species were more powerful in technology and more intelligent compare to the human being on earth. They had advanced tools and equipment in their laboratories such as the brain-boosting machinery. The most significant machine among all was an “underground city-sized machine”. Krell used that machine to work that facilitated them to exist in the world having “civilization without instrumentality”. Furthermore, suddenly all Krell vanished while they were working on the same machine. There were no indications on the planet about them. This movie discusses another view of super-technology that is the technology for the space journey. Forbidden planet presents the scientific exploration and advanced technology as the extreme danger to any species who utilizes them. Ingrid Richter’s stated “Like a forbidden fruit, Forbidden Planet contained knowledge and technology that far surpassed human responsibility…providing a…warning about the instability of human nature, especially in regards to destructive technology”. The biggest machine holds the extraordinary power and Altaria and Morbius both fulfill their requirements by manufacturing the innovative machine in the absence of any scientific considerations. Another miniaturize creation is Robby the Robot. This Robby machine has no pre-defined rules laws and has appeared as the master of its own wishes. In the end, it becomes the reason of Morbius destruction. Another most amazing form of technology in the forbidden planet is the brain-booster machine significantly created to test and enhances the Krell minds. On the other hand, this is the most dangerous machine for the brain of human beings and it murders the people who use it for brain boosting purpose. It is quite similar to the advanced technology of today’s world, these devices have the power over wealth and live of human beings, but at the same time, if mistreated, they can turn into lethal.

 

Thesis Statement of Jurassic Park

 

The thesis statement of movie Jurassic Park is related to the potential dangers due to the dependence on technology. The character John Hammond does not properly understand about the advancement in technology that is the reason he does not try to understand the importance and sensitivity of Dennis Nedry’s work. Nedry starts to feel himself unappreciated; he creates potential danger for Hammond and for others.

 Thesis Statement of forbidden planet

The thesis statement of movie forbidden planet is based on the topic of space technology, the importance of exploration, human weakness (minor themes of ego, pride, jealousy, love, lust and greed), Internal and External war threat.  

 

Discussion

Analysis Of Jurassic park 

 The topic of chaos theory and ethics of bioengineering were the major topic of discussion in the analysis of Jurrasic Park. As Micheal Crichton told“But now science is the belief system that is hundreds of years old. And, like the medieval system before it, science is starting not to fit the world anymore. Science has attained so much power that its practical limits begin to be apparent. Largely through science, billions of us live in one small world, densely packed and intercommunicating. But science cannot help us decide what to do with that world, or how to live. Science can make a nuclear reactor, but it cannot tell us not to build it. Science can make pesticide, but cannot tell us not to use it. And our world starts to seem polluted in fundamental ways---air, and water, and land---because of ungovernable science.” - -Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park. The success of Jurassic Park after the releasing as the motion picture vaulted all the major topics of this movie in the global spotlight. Crichton shows the critical analysis for the large medical industry that has the power to use the genetics technology for a wrong purpose. John Hammond develops the technological concept that Jurassic Park run by the use of computer and automation system. Although the system has an error and defects that becomes destructive over the period of twenty-four hours. The main reason of John Hammond concepts is that Jurassic Park, composed when the world was interested in implementing computerized system in every aspects of life. It is also another form of critique for the advancement and modernization in technology. The estimations of Malcolm’s chaos theory about the catastrophe give a clear warning to the society. 

    The genre of Jurassic Park is thriller and science fiction. The style of the narrator delivers the interesting fiction having clinical tone. The major structure of Jurassic Park discusses the danger of power and technology. Hammond wants to improve the system and increase the efficiency so that Jurassic Park can be operated with minimum cost and staff. That is the reason, he has emphasized the park design to be controlled by a single and efficient computer system. That computer system has the capability to virtually control each and every function of Jurrasic Park system. The novel of Jurassic Park was composed in 1990 and representing the fever of that time when the whole world was involved in the computerizing. Big companies and individual of society wanted to live their lives by using automation of technology. “Albeit sometimes on a much smaller scale than that of Hammond's park. This occurred just ten years before the predicted turn-of-the-millennium "Y2K" computer glitch that had computer technicians and information technology professionals across the globe bracing for disaster”. Crichton asked the primary question in Jurassic Park is what would the situation of the world if all the computerized system and technology suddenly disappeared or stopped working. Although, Crichton does not utilize the Malcolm theory of chaos calculation for showing the scientific lingo. Rather, Crichton utilizes the Malcolm theory to gives a warning to the society that extreme dependency on technology is dangerous. At the same time, Hammond computerized system particularly designed to predict the upcoming disaster that may enter in Jurassic Park. Malcolm insists that the law of chaos theory that rule all the manmade and natural system opposed the existence of complex system present in Jurassic Park and its existence cannot be predicted. In Jurassic Park, the computer system is showed the notification of unexpected destruction and no computer system is designed to prevent that upcoming destruction. The lesson of Malcolm can be applicable to any company or individual that wants to replace the computerized calculations for the  purpose of changeable human thought. As changing is the rule of the world and even the most accurate computer system sometimes stopped working.

    By analyzing the broader sense of Jurassic Park, Crichton is given the statement that man have an intense thirst for power and scientific exploration. As represented in Jurassic Park when the research and experiment of DNA gene-splicing are performed using the supercomputer, not human beings. The DNA strand is so complicated and extensive even with the help of the supercomputer, it is impossible to figure out and analyze it entirely. No doubt, the head scientist of Jurassic Park Dr. Wu is not completely aware of his own computer system that is the reason he replicates the dinosaur DNA. Crichton shows his worry that science so much depends on the theoretical concepts and human beings are so much involved in transforming the theoretical concept into the big picture. Only because today’s world have a supercomputer or latest technologies or powerful scientific discoveries or technological gadget that can perform the desired work does not mean that we should completely trust that technology particularly in the case when we have limited knowledge about something. “Through science, billions of us live in one small world, densely packed and intercommunicating. But Science cannot help us decide what to do with that world, or how to live. Science can make a nuclear reactor, but it cannot tell us not to build it. Science can make pesticide, but cannot tell us not to use it. And our world starts to seem polluted in fundamental ways because of ungovernable science”. 

Analysis Of forbidden planet

Forbidden planet movie is based on science fiction and is composed in 1956. The topic of film is related to the trans-humanists. It provides us with the great warning and many topics fit in it. For example: arguments, modern technology equipments, robotics, space travel and the designing of a well equipped machine that can be utilized for variety of purposes. Forbidden planet is covered the brief discussion of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” which is composed in the twenty-third century on Altair 4.In this movie in which a warning of Aliens and a war was started. The electronic music is becoming so much popular that after the forbidden planet movie all these themes became common in movie. Like the danger about the monsters attacking the people was thought by the public. But, there was a threat which the people could not see was the wishes of Morbius which was the controlling of the Monster with a machine which could bring it back to life. Many weakness are shown in the movie of the humans like Morbius did not had the power to control his I.D so it tormented Morbius’s partners and even Morbius. This error shows that how much control he had lost on his mind which was now unstable like a lion trying to escape from the cage. One of the big aspects of that movie is the work of technology which helped the Monsters I.D through which it came to life. The huge and gigantic machine which controlled the Monsters had created a lot of questions into the mind of others. The greediness is shown very clearly at the point where the cook asked a question to Robby about making almost 60 gallons of “Rocket bourbon” and he did not wanted anyone to know anything about this which they would share with others.

Furthermore, the main theme which I think suits this movie is internal threat and the small points highlighted very clearly are greed, unstableness and sub-consciousness of Morbius and the use of super technology. The theme that I chose is to be seen in the whole movie mainly by the Morbius and the thinking of people on the external threat not to forget how the Monster was killing everyone created a scene of danger on the lives of people. But, this goes fully opposite when we talk about Morbius because through that huge machine he tried to create a Monster of his own I.D which he was doing when not in a stable mind set. The last main theme which I would be talking about is the internal and external dangers. When this movie was composed that is in 1956, the world was still trying to forget the happenings and destructions caused by the great Second World War which brought a serious fear in the minds of the people present at that time including kids. Dr. Edward Morbius: “In times long past, this planet was the home of a mighty, noble race of beings who called themselves the Krell. Ethically and technologically they were a million years ahead of humankind, for in unlocking the meaning of nature they had conquered even their baser selves, and when in the course of eons they had abolished sickness and insanity, crime and all injustice, they turned, still in high benevolence, upwards towards space. Then, having reached the heights, this all-but-divine race disappeared in a single night, and nothing was preserved above ground”.

Conclusions

In conclusion, I believe that the movie Jurassic Park was representing the danger of the careless utilization of science and technology in a very controversial manner. The writer of this movie conveys this idea through the character of Ian Malcolm. Although Michael Crichton does not represents technology as the villain of today’s world. Fire can be used for both good and bad purposes, but it does not mean that fire should be banned. It is just the perspective of world that accurately determines how the latest invention in biotechnology, computer and nanotechnology is to be used. The only problem in this movie Jurassic Park was the irresponsibility of human beings while using the extreme technology. In conclusion of forbidden planet the movie was well organized through the Second World War and the references of internal danger and technological advancement. The people started to realize the things which had happen with other peoples that were so terrible that one could not imagine. Science showed its work at the time of world war and this fiction involved some materials which were beyond imagination .It was like some demonic entities were haunting the place and had curse that century. The internal threat and technology were also described as the sub-consciousness of Morbius and the external threat were realized through the countries which had invaded other countries and the Monster which had scared the people after the world war. This movie motivated me towards helping the people of today’s century and made me cry after looking at the conditions of those people who had suffered by the dangers of technology.
