Jurassic Park DVD

Jurassic Park is one of my favorite action adventure movies. Released in 1993 and directed by Steven Spielberg, this film tells the story of a group of researchers who visit Jurassic Park to study cloned dinosaurs. This is the original movie that would inspire a number of sequels including this year’s incredibly popular Jurassic World. This movie is one of my favorites and I can’t wait to re-watch it.

Movie Snacks

A movie night wouldn’t be complete without a variety of delicious snacks. Movie Blox came with a microwaveable bag of Orville Redenbacker’s pop corn (complete with its own pop up bowl), a box of Nestle Buncha Crunch chocolate covered crispy rice candy, and a bag of Boom Chicka Pop Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn. Yum! I really enjoyed this assortment of sweet and savory snacks.

Action Figurine & Stickers

The box also included an awesome Funko Pocket Pop! figurine from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collection. I was happy to receive Leonardo as he was always one of my favorites. There was also a collection of stickers, buttons, and magnets that can be placed almost anywhere to display your love of all things superheros. This was an awesome addition to the box.

verdict

Movie Blox really surprised me! I love the idea of bringing back movie nights for families or dates and this subscription box provides everything you need to make it happen. For someone who enjoys action and adventure films, Jurassic Park was an awesome selection. It will be interesting to see how popular this box does, considering that so many people use Netflix and other streaming movie services. I think there are still people who use DVD players, and those folks will love Movie Blox.
