Jurassic Park 3D

15 Apr



In 1993 audiences were treated to the film Jurassic Park, about an amusement park, filled with famous dinosaurs such as the mighty T-Rex, velociraptors and others. A novel idea until it all goes awry and the carnivores get loose.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the classic blockbuster film based off of the 1990 Michael Crichton novel and its return to the big screen in both 3D and regular format. The film, directed by legend Steven Spielberg, has stood the test of time and looks just as good as it did when it first came out.

The 3D conversion works quite well and made certain scenes look amazing. Other times however it still had the problem of background and foreground conveyance, making characters and objects have a cardboard cutout effect which made it a little nauseating at times but not enough to really distract from the whole experience.

This movie seems to be the latest in a trend of old classic movies coming back for a theatrical and 3D release. The excuses for this are usually along the lines of celebrating an anniversary or to accompany a Blu-ray release. This is a growing practice and of course it’s not a movie industry epidemic, it’s just a way to make some new fans and, let’s be honest, cash in whenever possible.

 It’s a lucrative practice. For one the movies have already been made, meaning that the only money spent is re-mastering the film, adding 3D effects and paying off royalties in order to sell the same product twice. Sounds like a lot, but it’s just a fraction of what it costs to produce a new movie.

But it’s really a win-win situation. Fans of the movie get to see it in theatres again (while introducing it to a new generation) and the movie studio just has to sit back and rake in the dough.

Either way, it’s still the same Jurassic Park movie we know and love. It’s just got more tricks up its sleeve now.

This has is and always will be my opinion. Thanks and see ya later!
