SEGA in the Media: “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” doesn’t have SEGA

With the Jurassic Park trilogy releasing on blu-ray this week, I thought it would be a fitting time to highlight a nod to SEGA in the second film “The Lost World: Jurassic Park”. An actual SEGA console does not appear, but our beloved gaming company does get a mention in the dialogue. While preparing to leave for another island filled with dinosaurs, Ian Malcolm is trying to persuade his daughter to go and stay with a friend of his. Unfortunately, she doesn’t want to go for a number of reasons, but the main one is that the woman “doesn’t have SEGA”. To quote Muldoon from the first film: “Clever girl.” Interestingly, I did not find this line of dialogue in the film’s script, so it looks like it was something added on the day of shooting. Perhaps Spielberg wanted to infuse a real world issue a kid would have, and staying with somebody who doesn’t have a SEGA is a great reason to not want to go. Perhaps they should get the girl a Game Gear or a Nomad?

  1. The smartest girl i ever saw in a movie.

  2. Her SEGA line almost made up for the silly gymnastics scene later in the movie.

    I always loved the little mention of SEGA in this film. I really do like the Jurassic Park films, they’re excellent.

    The Lost World: Jurassic Park is an extremely shitty movie.

    God, that movie was horrible. The third film was just disappointing.

    The only good to come out of this film was when the VHS tape was released and this was played at the very beginning:

    I just noticed that this was posted in the established category of “Orginal Content.” Haha, ouch.

  7. SEGA in the Media is a feature unique to SEGAbits (and SEGA Nerds but they are quite dead), thus the “original content tag. It’s really just how we sort articles. If you wrote for us, you’d see it categorized beneath this tag. Don’t see how it’s an “ouch” on anybody’s part.

    As for why I chose JP, it’s pretty obvious: blu-ray came out, I watched the second movie, spotted the SEGA mention, thought it would make a good SEGA in the Media post, I made the post. It’s not that difficult.
