Link: Jurassic Park 3D
Summary: 3D rerelease of the 1993 blockbuster. A theme park featuring resurrected dinosaurs as the main attraction breaks down, and the dinosaurs eat the tourists.
Thoughts: Jurassic Park has been one of my favorite films since I first saw it when I was a young kid and couldn’t understand most of the subplot. I just loved the dinosaurs. I watched the VHS quite a few times over the summer at my grandmother’s house, so before we journeyed home, we went to a used bookstore and bought a used copy, which I continued to watch many times. As far as disaster action thriller movies go, Jurassic Park gets the tone and pacing absolutely perfect, enough to forgive the many continuity errors and moments of cheesy dialog. (“Woman inherits the earth!” Lame.)
Anyway, the 3D was fantastic. I thought it was amazing how well the photography lent itself to the addition of a third dimension, and I’m surprised they had the technology to convert the film so well. There were a few little things here and there that looked a bit wonky, mostly the flat eyes of actor close-ups, but overall I was extremely impressed. Most of the 3D is beautiful.
This will definitely be a 3D film I’ll see in theaters more than once.
