Of Monsters and Dinosaurs
by Heidy de los Santos
Jurassic Park- Dr. Alan Grant. I chose Dr. Alan Grant as the protagonist for Jurassic Park because he truly cared for the dinosaurs and did not want to exploit them like Mr. Hammond. Unlike Mr. Hammond he thought about the consequences of his actions.
Jurassic Park- John Hammond- In my opinion Mr Hammond is the antagonist of Jurassic Park because he genuinely did not care about anything else but money. He only wanted to exploit the dinosaurs in order to become richer and because of his ignorance he failed to think about the consequences of his actions.
Man vs. Society- The monster whole life is sadly an example of man vs. society in Frankenstein. The monster scares and is hated by everyone including the person that created him, Victor.
Jurassic Park- Man vs. Himself- In the movie once the dinosaurs had escaped from their secluded area and Mr. Hammond's grandchildren were out in the same area the dinosaurs were, he really started to question himself and wondered if what he had created was a dangerous thing or if it was in some way beneficial to the world.
Man vs. Society- In Jurassic Park an example of man vs. society would be when Mr. Hammond brought Dr Alan grant, his wife, the lawyer, and Ian Malcolm to the park in order to prove himself and show them what he has done. He wanted society's approval whom in this case society would be the visitors that he has brought to the park.
Jurassic Park- Nothing good can ever come from being greedy.
Both- We must think before we act. And not only think about the benefits but also all of the conflicts.
Differences- The endings are different because unlike in Jurassic Park the ending of Frankenstein was a very tragic one and mostly everyone in the novel had died where as in Jurassic Park mainly everyone got out alive and happy.
Victor- Victor Frankenstein was in search of crasating something new and testing human nature. He wanted to create something that no one had ever done and he was also in search for knowledge.
The monster- In Frankenstein, The monster quest was to be able to understand humans. He wanted knowledge but later learned that all of his new knowledge was hurting him. He also wanted a companion, someone to share hai terrible life with.
Dr. Hammond- In the film Jurassic Park Dr. Hammond's quest was to become richer also he wanted to do things no one had ever done before and he wanted to do so while also becoming rich.
Dr. Grant- Dr. Grant was searching for a lot of knowledge mostly about dinosaurs. He is a paleontologist who loves dinosaurs and loves to learn a lot more about them.
