Excerpt: Picked up the 3D version of "Jurassic Park" after it finally dropped to the sub-$20 price level. I'm glad I didn't spend more. I don't want to give the impression that I didn't enjoy this version, because I always have a good time visiting this "Park". However, after seeing a 3D conversion of a much older title (The Wizard of Oz) and how impressive and immersive that title was, I had really high expectations for a more recent film.
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.
Excerpt: While the 11' release had more fine detail, it lacked in the color department. The shadows had a reddish tint to them and the overall color felt a little washed out, giving the movie a very aged look.... The 13' transfer, however slightly lacking in detail, the color and contrast are HUGE improvements. The movie now looks like it was filmed in the 2000s. Nice shades of orange, blues and amber colors give it a very modern look.
Excerpt: No movie gave me more nightmares than Jurassic Park when I was little. I kid you not. It wasn't Chuckie, Jason, or Freddy Crugar that did me in. It was the T-Rex. It was 2am when I popped the movie in (only planning on seeing how it looked), and I had to be up at 8, but even just a glimpse captured my imagination, so I said "screw it," and I took the plunge. Oh was it worth it! The noise reduction is like night and day from the 2-D releases I've seen in the past.
Excerpt: Movie: 5/5 Jurassic Park is a ground breaking film with effects that still hold up to this very day while celebrating its 20th anniversary. Jurassic Park is one of the greatest family movies of all time in my opinion, Jurassic Park has educational elements and a great positive message that it portrays to its audience 'why the human race shouldn't play god'.
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.
