Todays generation of movie goers have grown up in a new era of film making. The development of computer-generated imagery, CGI, has revolutionized the motion picture market. In 1993 Steven Spielberg created a movie that would change the industry forever; Jurassic Park.
Now it’s back in theater’s in 3D and hands down Jurassic Park is the best 3D movie that I’ve yet to see. The conversion to 3D is nearly perfect, with some blurred side shots that are barely noticeable. The thrill of the effects alone will pull you right back into Spielberg’s reality.
Okay, I must admit; I am a complete sci-fi geek through and through. And Jurassic Park is the movie that defined CGI. In addition to, I have seen that movie more times than I can count over the years. From big screen to my Android phone, been there done that. Or so I thought.
With that said, nothing and I mean nothing could have prepared me for the absolute awesome experience Jurassic Park brought to IMAX in 3D! If you do not go see the return of this movie on the big screen, than shame on you.
It’s not only the big names such as Spielberg or Crichton that attract movie goers to see this epic science fiction picture, and I’m not going to bore you with facts about who did what to make this movie so amazing. (Although Spielberg is the man!) What does it for Jurassic Park is the sheer terror of watching a thirty foot dinosaur attempt to rip you in half. The 3D is that extraordinary.
Even though I knew the T-Rex was going assail upon the children in the Ford Explorer, I cringed at those large teeth about to bear down upon me. As the T-Rex returns to chase the gas-powered Jeep, all you notice are huge teeth lunging for you that creates tension beyond belief. When Lex fell through the ceiling and the Philosoraptor leapt for her, I jump so hard I slammed my body into my seat to get away from its clutches. Yes, I actually had those same tickle sensations of going very fast on a rollercoaster. Every time the music sped up, so did my heartbeat and anxiety.
I love this film, it delivered more than what I could ever expect from a movie made in the 90’s. Spielberg and his crew created another mater piece turning Jurassic Park into a 3D movie.
