    It's one of the most memorable scenes in one of the most memorable movies of the 1990s. Beware: Spoilers for a 30-year-old film are coming. In the original 1993 "Jurassic Park," there's a harrowing scene where two young kids (Lex and Tim) are trapped in an overturned vehicle while a T. rex is sniffing about. Dr. Grant warns the children to hold still, because the T. rex's vision is based on movement; if they held still, the beast wouldn't be able to see them.
