Willamette Week reporter Alex Falcone wanted to write about the massive summer blockbuster Jurassic World, but unfortunately there weren't any press screenings until after his deadline. So instead he decided to interview a 10-year-old girl named Una about her excitement for the new film
and her advice for watching scary movies. I'm really glad he did because this interview is one of the most adorable things I've read in a long time:
Alex: Is mutating dinosaurs a good idea?
Una: No! It's such a stupid idea. That's like combining Loki and the Hulk. It would be so scary. Or like combining a spider and Annabelle, the creepy doll from that one movie. Then you'd have Annabelle with eight legs.
Alex: Jesus, yeah. Yuck. Una, it seems like you're kind of into scary things. So when you watch scary movies, how do you deal with it?
Una: My friends always watch movies before me, so they tell me the scary parts and then I watch those scary parts on YouTube 10 million times to prepare myself.
Alex: That's the best thing I've ever heard.
Una: It works pretty well. In Lord of the Rings there's this scary part where this gross orc jumps out of the mud, and it's like, "whaaa," so I watched that like 10 million times until I got used to it.
Alex: That would give me nightmares!
Una: I didn't get nightmares from that. But when I was 6, I probably shouldn't have been watching a Scooby Doo movie, but I did, and I had a nightmare about a mutated wrestler chasing me and my dad.
