Jurassic Park Iii (Full Screeen
You could call this collector's edition "How to Build a Better Dinosaur Movie." The "making-of" overview, a general overview for the casual viewer, just scratches the surface of this virtual dinosaur dig. "A Visit to ILM" takes the viewer step by step through the digital effects process, from concept to completed film, and "A Tour of Stan Winston's Studio" shows the construction of models and full-sized dinosaurs in a brief montage. Three "Behind the Scenes" featurettes pull back the curtain to illustrate the marriage of physical effects and digital animation with the performers. Once you've sampled the documentaries, switch on the film's commentary and review the film with four of the film's effects engineers as they discuss their handiwork in a revealing shot-by-shot dissection. Their pride in the work is palpable, and deservedly so. Paleontologists are using these animated creatures as working models in modern dinosaur research. --Sean Axmaker

The plane crashes and Alan finds himself back in the same situation he's been trying so hard to forget: being trapped in Jurassic Park.
Sam Neill as Alan Grant is one of my favorite performances ever. There's such an air of seriousness and intensity that Sam brings to the role every time. He can be funny, sure, but his character presentation commands a respect from his fellow actors that you don't see that often in film.
William H. Macy, another favorite of mine, plays Paul Kirby, the bumbling yet-trying-to-be-cool dad. Terrific. He was serious, clumsy, just fantastic. Every film Macy's in has never let me down and this movie delivers a wonderful Macy performance. There's something about the pacing of his line delivery that gets to me, too. It's a guy who's insecure but tries his best to put a confident spin on things no matter what.
The dinosaurs, as always, look real. They're huge, they're scary, they're loud. The only problem with these Jurassic sequels is the dinosaurs aren't new and terrifying anymore. They were in the first movie, not so much now. However, there are a few dino attacks in Jurassic Park 3 that weren't in the others, making the viewing of this film worthwhile.
Michael Jeter (The Green Mile), Laura Dern (Jurassic Park), John Diehl (Pearl Harbor) and Téa Leoni (A League of Their Own) also star.
Language warning: Cursing and blasphemy
This movie was all about action, and there wasn't much science stuff involved. The story is pretty simple, and there were some wacky part in this movie.
The raptors were radically changed; now they have feathers pointing out of their heads, there heads were a bit longer, and some part of them near their heads is PURPLE AND BLUE. I AM NOT JOKING. It looks dumb, and takes away from the movie. When I saw it, I'm just like, "What the crap is that??" Weird.
Another thing, the second movie was on Isla Sorna, and there was no sightings or mention of a Spinosaurus. Don't get me wrong, the Spinosaurus is my fave dinosaur in the JP series. That just seemed weird.
All in all, a great movie. A ton of fun, and it rocks. Buy the whole JP series, trust me, you'll like every single one!!!!
But after getting it on video, I changed my mind a bit. Yes, the plot is still just a vehicle for showing off the special effects. And they brought in some of the actors from the original, who must have been it strictly for the paycheck, as a way to keep the audience interested. And I'm sure Steven Spielberg's role as producer consisted of a few long-distance phone book.
But I have to admit, it did hook me. And I even like it better than the Part II. The reason is that I didn't care for many of the characters in Part II. Out of all the people to bring over from Part 1, Malcom was one of the least I was interested in. so while they were in it for the paycheck, I at least had a bit of care left from Part 1.
But center stage has to be kept for the effects themselves. You not only get a lot more minutes than the first film, but there has been an improvement in the quality. When we see the pteradactyl coming out of the fog for the first time, it's truly creepy. And it's also a film that keeps the kids interested.
other than that, the movie has some good moments, good shots, and then there's JP3.
for one, i'm a huge fan of the T-Rex and to see it get KO'd in less than 1 minute was flat out a disgrace.
two, the acting is very off in this movie. in the original Jurassic Park, the acting was AWSOME and REAL. it felt real, and made you believe like you were actually there with them in the park, and like you were being chased by the T-Rex, yet here, it's like, "oh, here comes a dinosaur, run!"
acting was to dry, and then to top it off, to corny.
how do we begin this movie? by two parents on the brink of a divorce who let their kids who aren't even 18 yet, go on a vacation that includes parachuting near the island of Jurassic Park?
finally, this movie was to short! it runs at about 1 hour 23 minutes!?!? yet in the theater, it felt like 3 hours long. why? cause it wasn't that good.
JP 3 was to fast and quick and should have been slowed down like the original film and re-casting wound not have hurt either.
still, it's a Jurassic Park movie, so i had to get it. hey, i got it for $5.
When I saw this movie, I understood why: He must have read the script beforehand and realized that this movie was going to go nowhere fast.
Smart move on his part.
At 1 hour and 33 minutes, this is the shortest of the three movies by over half an hour. However, it feels like it lasted longer than the other two movies. There were many reasons for this feeling.
First and foremost was the way Dr. Grant (Sam Neill) was tricked into going to Isla Sorna (Site B). Yes, I know the movie explains that his paleontological dig is running out of funds. But if a supposedly wealthy person that you never heard of pretty much gives you a blank check to write whatever amount you want on it, wouldn't you do just a little bit of digging to make sure he is on the up and up first? (Turns out, our wealth adventurer is not wealthy after all.) It would have been better if he had been wealthy... at least it would have closed that gaping plot hole (and the hole that we are suppose to believe is in Dr. Grant's head for not checking it out in the first place).
Secondly, what is with this sudden creation of the spinosaurus? This guy pops up everywhere on the island, and yet we heard nothing about him during The Lost World? This new dinosaur seems to have T-Rex for lunch everyday, so I find it hard to believe that we are suppose to believe that he was there the whole time (I'm not buying it, anyway). And this spinosaurus just isn't as scary to me as the T-Rex was (and is). Maybe my mind has been desensitized to dinosaurs at this point.
Thirdly, what about those pteranodons? Oh, never mind. If you've seen the closing scenes of The Lost World, you'll understand what I'm talking about here.Read more ›
