Jurassic Park
Steven Spielberg's 1993 mega-hit rivals Jaws as the most intense and frightening film he'd ever made prior to Schindler's List, but it was also among his weakest stories. Based on Michael Crichton's novel about an island amusement park populated by cloned dinosaurs, the film works best as a thrill ride with none of the interesting human dynamics of Spielberg's Jaws. That lapse proves unfortunate, but there's no shortage of raw terror as a rampaging T. rex and nasty raptors try to make fast food out of the cast. The effects are still astonishing (despite the fact that the computer-generated technology has since been improved upon) and at times primeval, such as the sight of a herd of whatever-they-are scampering through a valley. --Tom Keogh

The Lost World: Jurassic Park
After the global phenomenon that was Jurassic Park, it was a given that novelist Michael Crichton would conjure up a sequel and that Steven Spielberg would then commit it to film. Considering the potential profit involved, it was practically a commercial mandate. Perhaps it was inevitable that both efforts were contrived, and well below the talents of Crichton (well, maybe) and certainly Spielberg, who just didn't have the heart for this recycling after the artistic triumph of Schindler's List. What we're left with, for better and worse, is a redundant blockbuster that still benefits from Spielberg's mastery of high-intensity action sequences and the further development of amazing computer-generated special effects. What's missing is the awe and wonder that made Jurassic Park a technical marvel and a dazzling product of scientific imagination. The story's a no-brainer: after the deadly fiasco of the original dinosaur theme park, we're taken (along with returning star Jeff Goldblum) to a second island where genetically engineered dinosaurs still thrive under the watchful eye of Goldblum's biologist girlfriend (Julianne Moore). But a devious capitalist (Arliss Howard) is determined to export dinosaurs to a new park in San Diego, financing a hunt-and-capture expedition that results in another series of fatal disasters. In Spielberg's hands this movie's more exciting than it has a right to be, given the creative paucity of Crichton's novel and David Koepp's adapted screenplay. The special effects are state-of-the-art, and the T. rex's rampage through the streets of San Diego is nothing short of spectacular; but apparently an improvement upon the shortcomings of Jurassic Park was too much to hope for. --Jeff Shannon

Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park and the blockbuster sequel The Lost World are presented in this impressive collection.
Spielberg's dinosaur adventure Jurassic Park is up there with the all-time greats. Taken from Michael Crichton's thrilling novel, Jurassic Park is one of the most entertaining and exciting films ever made. The special effects are from FX maestro Stan Winston, who did the special effects for Aliens (1986) and Terminator 2 (1991). The seamless combination of CGI and robotic creatures creates some truly terrifying action set- pieces.
Despite what some critics thought when the film was released, I feel that all the principal actors give good performances, especially Sam Neill as Alan Grant and Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm. But admittedly, the special effects are the main attraction, and Winston's dinosaurs (which won him another Oscar after Terminator 2) are truly frightening. Great entertainment.
The film's transfer onto DVD is first- rate, with superb picture and sound. The special features are exceptional, with a 50 minute 'making of' of the film and trailers for Jurassic Park, the Lost World and the teaser for Jurassic Park 3. Most interesting, however, is the footage of early pre-production meetings with Spielberg and the FX team discussing how certain shots and effects should be done. Also, there's a Phil Tippett animatic "Raptors in the Kitchen", showing how claymation assists the director in visualising the shots and camera angles. Also there are storyboards, production photos and web links. A 5 star film, 5 star extras. Excellent entertainment.
The Lost World is an exciting adventure starring Jeff Goldblum, Vince Vaughn, Julianne Moore and Pete Postlethwaite.

In Kindergarden I remember them telling us how Dinosaurs were all giant unintelligent lizards. (I'm only 22, so you can imagine my suprise at recent discoveries.) People actually thought that Dinosaurs were giant lizards, infact the name Dinosaur translates to Terrible Thunder Lizard. I had envisioned a world where giant lizards would roam the earth doing nothing really interesting. Despite this we all have a facination with Dinosaurs that stems from not knowing what they were really like. Jurassic Park changed the way a lot of people saw Dinosaurs. Palentologists now theorize that Dinosaurs were closer to birds than Lizards, which changes the way that they would move, the way that they would sound... everything. Jurrasic was the first movie to incorporate many of those recent discoveries into the movie, and it was learning about these things that really made Jurassic Park the experience that it was for me.
The problem is that I read the book prior to seeing this movie and I was dissapointed that the movie was similar to the book in spirit and in characters alone. Aside from having the same characters this movie is nothing like the book, nothing. It does maintain the spirit of the book, characters that are easily likeable, and big huge ultra realistic looking dinosaurs. As a frachise Jurassic has been the only movie series to have consistantly convincing CGI characters, and full scale robots that look and move like real animals, and can kill those they are "acting" with. I was blown away by the movie's visual effects, and I still am.
This movie may not be the best movie of all time, but it is certainly one of my favorites simply because of the technical accomplishments of the film.

Jurassic Park & The Lost World Deluxe Collector's Edition Boxed Set is a good buy, even though that...price tag might turn you off at first, it should still be considered by movie/DVD fans. The collection contains the Dolby Digital Widescreen editions of the Speilberg films, a long with specially packaged soundtrack Cds, 8x10 photographs, two Senitype film cels which are individually numbered, a long with a certificate of authenticity (each box has an assigned number).
"Jurassic Park" is one of my favorites, if not the most favorite movie of mine. I know that aside from the breakthrough awe-inspiring special effects, there really isn't much that is that extraordinary. But the direction of Steven Speilberg, and the honesty of the actors really makes this film a classic, which I'm sure it will be called by the time of it's 25th Anniversary. Sam Neill, Laura Dern & Jeff Goldblum all give great performances, as do the child actors Ariana Richards and Joseph Mazello. The brother-sister chemistry that these then-children actors had in the movie, is something that was not matched by the kid actors in "The Lost World" or "Jurassic Park III". "Jurassic Park" has what some may call an unfair advantage to it's sequels: this was the first time that millions of people around the world saw a 'real dinosaur' (as in dinosaurs that actually look real), which gave it a sense of magic and wonder. That sense was just about gone by the time of the 1997 sequel, because of how common CG creatures had become by then. Nevertheless, "Jurassic Park" does have that magic, which makes it the best of the series. What movie goer could forget the first time Dr.
