Excerpt: A movie from the 90's that has visual effects better than some of the movies today. My God. Jurassic Park is another Spielberg staple. It has all the fun and adventure, big life feeling and the John Williams score blazing through majestic shots. There is not a lot to say about this movie, other than that it is fun. It can make anyone happy, that is Spielberg's talent; he knows how to entertain properly.
Summary: One of the all-time great adventure films of the 90's. This is Spielberg at the top of his game - churning out an adrenaline-packed, funny, charming, and awe-inspiring action film with a little something for everybody. The dinosaur effects are impressive and the crazy world of Jurassic Park (a world that, let's face it, we all wished we could inhabit as a kid) is brought to life with a host of technical and artistic elements working together.
Summary: Does anyone like dino's? Watch this movie and think again. Hopefully this kind of things will never really be possible. Then again.... I've always wondered what colour a T-rex would really be.
Summary: The effects are definitely the stars here. The characters are under-developed and uninteresting and I was praying for those irritating little brats to get eaten by the end. It's also strangely unexciting considering Spielberg's pedigree at this kind of thing. The sequel was better.
Excerpt: Jurassic Park is surprisingly good, and I say "surprisingly," because I didn't know how much more I really wanted to watch after the first hour. Roughly the first 60 minutes is contaminated with utter boredom. In fact, most of this first hour wasn't even necessary. If I could crop out the 5-10 minutes of the first hour that were important, I imagine that the audience would still understand what was happening.
Summary: Highly imaginative and entertaining dinosaur adventure. The effects hold up amazingly well to this day. The most memorable moments still generate the same feelings of wonder and excitement that I felt on the first viewing. It's a flat-out fun thrill ride! One of my all-time favorite movies! This is what all 'monster movies' should strive to reach.
Excerpt: I for one was always fascinated with dinosaurs as a kid. This is one of several milestones of Steven Spielberg. A novel based film; I felt that there was not a single figure was attention-grabbing. Dr. John Hammond" (Richard Attenborough) was like a babbling geek, Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neil) was too serious, Dr. Ellie Sattler (Lauren Dern) wasn’t that pretty/charming enough and the vexing Dr. Ian Malcom (Jeff Goldblum) just kept complaining too much.
Summary: This movie did exactly what it was meant to do: capture my imagination. ever since seeing it at age two, I've been facinated by dinosaurs. As I got older the movie still had alot to offer in terms of philosophical insights and such. One of my favorites.
