Synopsis


Jurassic Park
Steven Spielberg's phenomenally successful sci-fi adventure thriller is graced by state-of-the-art special effects from the team of Stan Winston, Phil Tippett and Michael Lantieri from George Lucas's Industrial Light & Magic. The film follows two dinosaur experts -- Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Dr. Ellie Sattler Laura Dern) -- as they are invited by eccentric millionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) to preview his new amusement park on an island off Costa Rica. By cloning DNA harvested from pre-historic insects, Hammond has been able to create living dinosaurs for his new Jurassic Park, an immense animal preserve housing real brachiosaurs, dilophosaurs, triceratops, velociraptors, and a Tyrannosaur Rex. Accompanied by cynical scientist Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), who is obsessed with chaos theory, and Hammond's two grandchildren (Ariana Richards and Joseph Mazzello), they are sent on a tour through Hammond's new resort in computer controlled touring cars. But as a tropical storm hits the island, knocking out the power supply, and an unscrupulous employee (Wayne Knight) sabotages the system so that he can smuggle dinosaur embryos out of the park, the dinosaurs start to rage out of control. Grant then has to bring Hammond's grandchildren back to safety as the group is pursued by the gigantic man-eating beasts. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

    Great Film Updated for 3D

    Jurassic Park is a (now) twenty-year-old film that lends itself surprisingly well, to 3D. For the re-release in theaters, Universal has gone back and "post-converted" the film to 3D, by adding depth to the picture. In most cases, it works very well, especially since there are a number of scenes where there are different elements (bushes, trees, etc.) in the foreground and background which already give you a good sense of depth.The addition of 3D, separates those elements creating an immersive world. That is not to say it does not have its faults. In some scenes, the 3D does not work well and the picture falls flat, however, they are generally non-action scenes. The most exciting moments of the film are where the 3D really shines. I also feel that the 3D master is better than that of the original 2D blu-ray. The picture seems sharper, and more vibrant with color. The 2D blu-ray is included in this package, so you can compare if you'd like. Also included, is most of the first film's special features that carry over from the original trilogy set. For this release there is also a featurette in 3D. Overall, it is a great film to have in 3D, and it is highly recommended for any fan of this film.

    On a remote island where an amazing theme park with living cloned dinosaurs is located, five people must battle to survive among the prehistoric predators when the security system breaks down and the beasts are released from their enclosures. All told, some will prefer the new 2013 transfer, especially those who enjoy its more faithful and cinematic qualities. Others, though, will prefer the 2011 transfer, as it provides a more obvious (but more superficial) high definition upgrade. Neither camp will be right, neither camp will be wrong, as both presentations are far from ideal. Hopefully, in the not too distant future, a third release will appear on the horizon. One born from the restored, Spielberg-approved 4K master that hasn't been subjected to rampant artificial sharpening or detail-quashing noise reduction; a truly faithful, unmistakably filmic presentation (available to all in 3D and 2D) that delivers the best of both worlds, minus the separate imperfections, shortcomings and technical limitations that hinder each transfer, for one reason or another, from being declared the definitive version of Jurassic Park.

    Steven Spielberg's 1994 blockbuster about a dinosaur amusement park going to hell in a hand basket was (and, in my opinion, still is) a masterpiece, a benchmark in special effects wizardry. The story holds up, the cast is remarkable (and the supporting cast is even better), and the dinosaurs are remarkable. An eccentric millionaire (Richard Attenburrough) develops an amusement park populated by dinosaurs, and invites paleontologists Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum to visit his little island. Of course, everything goes haywire, due in part to the nature of the dinosaurs, and in part to the nature of the humans running the place, including a systems analyst played with mustache-twirling evil glee by "Seinfeld" supporting actor Wayne Knight. Sure, the movie is 21 years old, but it holds up to repeated viewings, even after seeing such CGI masterpieces as George Lucas' "Star Wars" prequels, James Cameron's "Avatar," and any of the Marvel comics movies. I say drag the family into the living room, pop this movie in, and take a trip to Jurassic Park.

    Great 3D Conversion. Adds to Viewing Experience

    I don't need to say anything about the film, because it is a classic and most of you have seen it before. I will speak on the 3D. The depth is reasonably convincing. There are moments where foreground objects have a nice pop and contribute to a nice 3D experience without ever feeling gimmicky. Almost all of the grain is gone, which was present with some previous HD transfers of the film. Overall, is the 3D worth another purchase of this film, since many people probably have it on blu-ray or DVD? Yes. It adds to the viewing experience and makes it feel more immersive. People that are new to 3D and exploring to buy some films to fill their 3D library should pick this up. Item includes: 1. 3D Blu-ray disc 2. Blu-ray disc 3. DVD 4. Ultraviolet copy (Vudu, Flixster, etc) 5. Digital Copy (iTunes)

    Perfect movie with great 3D

    There's no point in reviewing Jurassic Park. The movie is basically untouchable. Whether the 3D blu-ray is worthwhile or not is another matter, and I believe that it is. It may have been made some 15 or 20 years before 3D movies and blu-rays became a thing, but the 3D on this disc does not betray its age at all. It looks very good. Many scenes show remarkable depth and it's very pleasing to look at. It's not perfect, however. Some scenes (the chilean sea bass lunch scene comes to mind) hardly used the 3D effect at all. At other times the color palette gets a little bit too warm for my liking, which is not a problem I've had on the 2D disc. Overall, it is a great way to experience the movie, particularly if you're a fan of, or at least not offended by 3D. Whether it's more enjoyable than the original version is probably based more on personal preference. Any fan of the movie should certainly at least check it out.

    Best reconstructed stereoscopic movie ever!

    I don't buy many Blu-ray movies that I already own on DVD but this particular film has received a lot of praise for the high quality of the reconstructed 3D stereoscopic footage. For those of you who aren't familiar with 3D movies, they require either a special 2-camera setup to film so each frame has two images (one for each eye). Obviously, during the production years and years ago they couldn't take this into consideration and only used one camera to film. Using the latest in reconstructive technology the film reconstruction artists were able to create two frames for every one frame of the original with strikingly high quality. I've never seen a better result than in this film. And what better way to celebrate one of the most technically brilliant films of all time. The visual effects in Jurassic Park still stand up to the big blockbuster hits of today!

    Spielberg makes art of an ordinary man's work

    O, how easily we forget to watch for originality in a sequel. How our expectations about special effects dull our ability to hear the tale of one of this century's greatest filmmakers. True, Jurassic Park is a mere collection of action sequences strung together in a thin plot. Character development is minimal, as is depth, but all these complaints can be made of the first film. What Spielberg does that so few directors do these days is make good action sequences. Most action scenes I watch today are simply mindless montages in which no intelligent conflict or suspense is established and therefore nothing is resolved. The good guys fight the bad guys, action, action, good guys win. Spielberg sets up situations for his characters to get out of, gives you some idea of the resolution, then makes you sit in agonizing pain waiting for the resolution.

    great dino flick

    Posted

    Just before making Schindler's List, Spielberg made this film, which became the best-known dinosaur movie ever. A billionaire (Richard Attenborough) uses the latest scientific technology to create a theme park with authentic dinos at an island near Costa Rica. He invites his grandkids (Joseph Mazzello & Ariana Richards) & 3 scientists (Sam Neill, Laura Dern, & Jeff Goldblum) to be the first to check it out. Things go drastically wrong, however, due to the actions of one of the employees (Wayne Knight) and everyone soon gets a feeling of what it must have been like to be living in the age of dinos. Like The Birds, this emphasizes tension over character moments (although Goldblum gets some good, funny lines). There are some deviations from Michael Crichton's book, but you won't mind because you'll be too busy getting thrilled.
