Jurassic Park: Classic or Not?August 30, 2011 No Comments
With the Jurassic Park Ultimate edition now out, its time to revisit a classic to see if it is still a classic in this modern era.
In isla Nublar, a fictional island in Costa Rica, billionaire John Hammond made a park where he put all genetically cloned dinosaurs, it is called Jurassic Park. The park was considered safe and people friendly until one worker was savagely attacked by a dinosaur. An investor then calls for an inspection to ensure the park is safe.
The experts that were given the task were Ian Malcolm, paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant and paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler. During the inspection, Malcolm was with the visitors along with his two grandchildren. While on tour, one of Malcolm’s computer programmers shut down the system to steal some embryo thus locking the visitors down and allowing some dinosaurs to escape the park as well. This deception of the computer programmer caused the park to be in a wild array and put the life of the inspectors including the owner of the park into jeopardy. Wherever the group hides or crawls, a dinosaur is either behind or in front of them ready to attack and kill. Luckily, the group was rescued by a helicopter and as Hammond flies in the air with the helicopter, he take one last look on his Jurassic Park and the dinosaurs that are now heading on to the sea.
The film received a lot of positive reviews after it was released on cinemas. New York Times reviewer (Janet Maslin) calls it “a true movie milestone, presenting awe- and fear-inspiring sights never before seen on the screen… On paper, this story is tailor-made for Mr. Spielberg’s talents…but it becomes less crisp on screen than it was on the page, with much of the enjoyable jargon either mumbled confusingly or otherwise thrown away.” On Rotten Tomatoes, it gets an 88% approval rating while 90% of the critics give the movie a positive write up and feedbacks. Even Empire magazine gave it five stars. This is one of the most popular trilogies since the back to the future trilogy and its well worth owning.Tags: jurassic parkMovies, Reviews
