"In Terminator 2, I recorded the sound of Buster eating puppy chow, and that became the crunch when the T-1000 spiked that guy's eye socket."

Heh, that's pretty funny.

Nice article subby. Not really seeing the velociraptor in this turtle video though (probably nsfw noises).

Yet another reason why biologists might have been laughing so damn hard while watching.

""It's somewhat embarrassing, but when the raptors bark at each other to communicate, it's a tortoise having sex," said Rydstrom. "It's a mating tortoise! I recorded that at Marine World" Ah Marine World, can't begin to recall how many times I went there as a kid.

/now Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
//you can tell who is from the Bay Area because they still call it Marine World

Turtle sex is hilarious, and I recommend everyone watch the many videos of it on Youtube immediately.

I'd pay to watch a tortoise masturbate. Seriously.

Not surprising at all, considering the types of noises I make mid-coitus. Picture the xenomorph death cries from Aliens, only a little higher-pitched

They never really explained WHAT that tortoise was having sex with...

How am I going to explain that one to kids at the museum?

I love sound foley folks, the way they record mundane sounds for movies is pretty remarkable.

There used to be a feature at MGM park, around the water area, where they had all these little shows where they would show all the various tricks that go into making movies. One on make up, special effects, and even one for foley.

Sadly that shiat isn't there anymore and instead its just one more ride after another.

My wife used to work with a catering company who participated in events at our local zoo. Imagine weddings, anniversaries, classy fundraisers. Now imagine them with the slow awful sounds of turtle love in the background, echoing over the grounds...

Shark dung measurements will alert the staff that leftover steaks were pitched in the tank.

Saw the 3D rerelease last night on an IMAX screen, and damn but that movie holds up well.  The sound design was great; the T-rex roar is still one of the most legitimately terrifying movie monster sounds I can remember. And the raptors were just as scarily intelligent now as they seemed to my teenage self.

Thinking about it, just about the only thing that really dated the movie were some of the closeups of Nedry's workstation where he had piles of old 3 1/2 floppies. Those would be thumb drives at best these days. Everything else still made sense even in a modern context, inasmuch as it ever did. The movieOS interface the girl works with looks dated, but it looked stupid back when the movie came out as well. I am sorry, that is NOT a Unix interface!

"Films rarely depict computing accurately - largely because, let's face it, sitting in front of a terminal hacking away is hardly the most exciting thing to watch. Back in Jurassic Park, when Lex was trying to hack into the computer system to get the power back online, she used a 3D file manager. Lots of people liked to cite this as a great example of how Hollywood just 'didn't get' computers.

"What most people fail to realise is that FSN, the File System Navigator, was a demo system tool from Silicon Graphics IRIX. You use to be able to download it direct from the (now sadly defunct) Serious Fun freeware pages on the Silicon Graphics website. Hey, this is Silicon Graphics we're talking about - who else would make a 3D file browser in with their OS?"

Having seen two tortoises getting it on last month at the zoo, you could hear those guys across the park. I had no idea that tortoises could make sounds at all, nor was I prepared for how loud the farkers were.

"Dammit Mr. Shell, I'm trying to watch Jurassic Park!  Cut it out!  Mr. Shell, no!.  Geez, what's gotten into that guy?"

Ayep. Mizzou had an Irix lab for a while, that thing was on there.

As well as Battlezone, with which we schooled noobs.

Yep, came to post this, saw it was already posted, left satisfied.

Stop what you are doing and go see it. It is worth it. The movie has some of the best FX and CGI. And it is better then what you see today.
