What can you say about JP that hasn't already been said before. This movie broke a lot of new ground, not the least of which being incredible (believable) CGI. I used to wrok for the company...
Pros Cons
  • Incredible sound! Solid 2D video quality
  • Some remastered scenes are a little grainy.
What can you say about JP that hasn't already been said before. This movie broke a lot of new ground, not the least of which being incredible (believable) CGI. I used to wrok for the company that made the computers used to create the 3D CGI content and I still have a T-shirt that says "Jurrasic Classic" (I'll leave it to you trivia geeks to figure out the company and computer). To me, this movie was as must have - it blew me away in the theater. My kids never had the pleasure of seeing in the theater, but this release of JP brings enough of the experience home that, if you have a good 5.1 set-up, they can get most of the experience.

Audio: REference quality, really. There are scenes in this that still make me quite literally jump out of my chair. The stampede scene is fantastic, and the thunderous roar of the T-Rex is a joy to behold. The better your sub is, the more you will "feel" the impact.

Video: 95% of the movie is crystal clear and sharp. There are some scenes that remain a little grainy - they tend to be darker scenes that would be difficult to clean up completely.

Extras: Not too much. Some commentary and behind the scenes stuff. The story board animation "rough ups" are pretty interesting - down right amusing in some cases.

Note that this review is for the Blu-Ray remaster of the original film - I don't have the trilogy. You can pick this up for $5-10 and at that price it should be in everyone's collection!
