Too Obscure For You?
The famous Tom Booker is a character from the book/movie The Horse Whisperer. He is, in fact, the horse whisperer himself, who supposedly helps horses with people problems. Having never seen the movie nor read the book, I can only speculate on how jealously Tom guards his horses.
That unusually realistic looking fellow who asks about the raptors comes from the movie Jurassic Park. Velicoraptors are, if you listen to Dr. Alan Grant in the beginning of that movie, six foot chickens with six inch retractable claws. And they slash at you here, or here, or maybe across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is… you are alive when they begin to eat you. I loved that movie.
