Hoping to cash in on the 3-D trend, Steven Spielberg and Universal have re-teamed to bring the Jurassic Park experience even closer to audiences for Jurassic Park 3-D. In many instances, these re-releases tend to suffer from non-impressive 3-D effects that really do nothing to enhance the overall movie experience.
Fortunately, this re-release is a worthwhile one to experience in 3-D. At certain points during the film, especially in the iconic scene where the Jeep is knocked over and the T-Rex is hunting John Hammond’s grandchildren, the viewer tends to feel as if the dinosaurs are actually alive in the room. Another particularly memorable moment was the re-mastered kitchen scene.
The already claustrophobic kitchen scene gets even tenser in 3-D. The visuals are eye-popping, jaw-dropping and spellbinding. In addition, it was pretty cool just being in a theater watching the classic 1993 film. Most Siena students probably cannot claim to have watched the movie in its initial run, so catching it on a screen bigger than a TV or computer screen was special.
For anyone who has never seen Jurassic Park, it is a one-of-a-kind movie that blends horror, suspense, action, and comedy. It features stellar directing from Spielberg, a clever script, and powerhouse acting. Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Richard Attenborough have great chemistry together- specifically the various confrontations and moral dilemmas the four hash out with one another.
This film is more than just a mindless thriller like many “monster” movies are. I highly recommend going to Crossgates or Colonie to experience it for yourself!
