Review: Jurassic Park in 3D

Release Date:  April 5, 2013 (original release June 11, 1993)
Running Time: 127 minutes
Starring: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum
Who to see it with: Everyone, this is a classic


Jurassic Park is a Spielberg classic.  You've probably already seen it.  I must have seen it 5 or 6 times by now.  Twice in theaters, 2 or 3 times in junior high, and I imagine it must have been on TV a few times.  So I wasn't expecting much from the 3D re-release but I was still excited to see it again in theaters.   And, I was blown away.  I was impressed by how good it looked in IMAX.  
The picture was amazingly clear and everything looked great.  Maybe it's the fact that this movie used a lot of animatronics and actual sets, but everything held up much better than I would have expected.  The CG is a little dated but not distracting, mostly because it's just used as a small part of some really beautiful scenes.  And the sound.  The sound design was brilliant.  I still got chills hearing the opening theme as the helicopter approached the Isla Nublar.  The 3D was also a nice touch.  It was not distracting and added some nice depth to the movie; it also provided me with a new way to enjoy a movie I'd already seen many times.  There were a few instances were depth issues occurred but overall it contributes to the film.  If you haven't seen it, you need to.  And if you have already seen it, still see it again.  

See it.
