Hands down my favorite movie of all time! ❤️
Verified purchase
If I could give this movie a billion stars I would but sadly have to settle for only 5 ha i've watched this movie easily hundreds of times, it's been my favorite movie ever since I was a kid, I love the 2nd one too but the 3rd one and everything else after is pure trash 🚮 (I actually wanted to be a paleontologist when I was growing up loved everything dinosaur still do but sadly things happened in my life that took me off that path 😕) Which is why I bought the blu ray before getting this i'd either have to rent it or hope it was playing on tv or on one of my streaming services, I even went and saw it in theaters a couple years ago when it was rereleased for its anniversary, I had the VHS as a kid (funnily enough I even still have my VHS player) and was able to watch it that way but it's in storage so next best thing was to just buy it. Really glad I did, came on time, the case and disk are in perfect condition, the HD picture is beautiful and clear. Have no complaints about this purchase whatsoever a really happy girl 😊

My fav dinosaur of all time is obviously T. rex 😍 And my opinion on if it was possible to bring dinosaurs back is this: I love dinosaurs and would kill to be able to see one BUT to me it wouldn't feel right doing it because they would be nothing but a side show attraction, the big wigs doing it would only care about money (in the beginning the lawyer says "we'll make a fortune off of this place" that's what I mean, the big wigs wouldn't care about them as living creatures but as a way to make money), wouldn't be treated right, wouldn't be able to live like they're supposed to and want to so I wouldn't be okay with it. I would want to see them in their natural habitat alive and free like they were millions of years ago, if time machines were around i'd be spending all my time in the past no doubt 😂 Also I know theres a lot of people out there who bash this movie for not being "up to date" but remember 1. This movie came out in 1993 a little over 26 years ago so a lot has been discovered since then so of course it's going to be out of date somewhat 2. It's a movie they're meant to be entertaining if you want to watch something that's 100% facts i'd stick to documentaries (but tbh I think that they did an AMAZING job, yeah we now know that T Rex's vision wasn't based on movement they actually had the best vision of any dinosaur possibly even better then any animal alive today including us, they had one of the strongest bite forces of any dinosaur and animal that's ever lived, and had one of the best senses of smell of any dinosaur and possibly better then anything alive today. T. Rex is hands down the coolest and most bad a** animal that's ever lived which is why they're my fav 😏 We also now know that velociraptor wasn't as big as they're shown in the movie but there was raptor species who were that big and obviously diloposaurus didn't have a frill or spit venom amazingly they were actually a lot bigger in real life.. And we also know that a lot of dinosaurs if not all had feathers and without a doubt that birds are descended from them- by the way I don't know about you but it's cool as heck to know that birds are basically mini dinosaurs ha it gives me a whole new respect for birds 😊 Dinosaurs are called non avian dinosaurs aka don't fly and birds are avian dinosaurs aka do fly cool huh 😍)

So to sum things up if you love Jurassic park then I highly reccomend getting this! That way you can watch it whenever you want 😊

Lot's of action

I have viewed Jurassic Park quite a few times. If I did not like it I would not have. This will be my last time though. It just is not an enjoyable movie. It is more of a Horror Movie than action. It is full of peril, bloody scenes and Dinosaurs doing their thing while humans get in the way. I think the reason the Dino got sick every 6 weeks is because she went into heat and another "female" Dino tried to procreate with her. Some people have mentioned the screen writers never addressed the cause of the sickness. It was mentioned that the book explained. Never read it. Just trying to be funny a little. I would think the plants made her sick. With that said. Moms and Dads this movie is full of very sweet scenes but the violence outweighs those scenes. I say: wait until they are older. My daughters have never seen this movie and have no desire to. It is a good story to teach people why dinosaurs were wiped from the earth. I have watched all of the movies except the last one. The story is just too sad. I like life not death. Good choices not foolish ones. This movie can be fun to watch but only if one is strong enough to watch and then just walk away. I think for many it is seeing what everyone was talking about. Anyway to sum up. Lot's of gory scenes!

I just received my package that was supposed to be a 3-Disc Combo Pack (Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Disc, and DVD) but what I received only came with one disc which was the DVD.

Jurassic Park is an amazing 90's thriller. Sam Neil plays Alan Grant, a paleontologist, who is invited by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) to visit his new amusement park, Jurassic Park. At this park, Hammond and his team have developed a way to create dinosaurs. As the movie progresses, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neil discuss the many problems with the park. This movie has great characters, thrilling action, and epic portrayals of dinosaurs. This is a fantastic movie that everyone needs to see. This is one of my favorite movies and you should definitely pick it up.

Doesn't age well

I don't really have any nostalgia for Jurassic Park. The summer it came out I never saw it in the theater, only watching it once at a drive-in (and even then the fog rolled in about halfway through). In retrospect, that's weird--at the time I loved Spielberg's movies and Crichton's novel, and even more than that I just loved dinosaurs. The lack of a driver's license at the time, or a nearby theater playing the movie, led to me missing the original release.

Anyway, once I did see it, it left me flat. The kids are terrible actors, and Grant and Ellie aren't much better. The plot is fine, but there are a lot of loose ends that they never follow up on (like, why was the triceratops sick? I read the book, so I know, but the movie takes a detour and never gives a reason for it). And the story in general is very thin--there's just not a lot there. It moves the characters along a fairly rote path from setpiece to setpiece but you never care about any of them. And while Malcolm is now kind of a folk hero, A) I found him annoying as a character and B) he disappears at the halfway point anyway.

Compared to modern effects the CGI dinos look terrible, but the "creature effects" puppets still hold up to the test of time. The cinematography is very Spielbergian, and the technical aspects of filmmaking are nailed, as you would expect.

All that adds up to a movie I can respect, but don't love. Three stars.

When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth! One of Spielberg's best movies
Verified purchase
It’s been years since I’ve watched the original “Jurassic Park” which premiered way back in 1993 and although I have it on DVD when I saw this Blu-ray edition for a bargain price I jumped on it and watched it again. Despite being nearly 30 years old this Steven Spielberg masterpiece really holds up and is simply fabulous. Stars Sam Neill (Dr. Alan Grant) and Laura Neill (Dr. Ellie Sattler) really sell the sense of awe and wonder you would expect to experience yourself when suddenly witnessing living dinosaurs.

Jeff Goldblum is great as mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm and gets the best lines in the movie such as this exchange with Lord Richard Attenborough as the wealthy park creator John Hammond:
John Hammond: All major theme parks have delays. When they opened Disneyland in 1956, nothing worked!
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but, John, if The Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists.

The script is solid, Spielberg’s direction is laser focused and John Williams’ musical score is one of his best producing results that are captivating decades later. Relying less on CGI and more on puppetry the special effects remain remarkably convincing and are as good (or arguably better) than the stuff you see today despite the advances in technology. The T-Rex and Velociraptors are completely terrifying and you will be on the edge of your seat. Bottom line; I still love this movie and will definitely watch it again and again.

Wow...... Should've bought this 3D when 1st released. 2D is also exceptional.
Verified purchase
A remarkable conversion to the 3D format, excellent picture with the top 7.1 audio if your system has that setup, if not it has the 2.0 for good sound with the TV speakers. This has moved to a show off title for me with great depth and detail not a pop out type of conversion but one of the best I now own. With these 3D titles going away add this to your collection before they're gone you won't be disappointed.

Dont' mess with nature
Verified purchase
The theme of Jurassic Park actually dates back to the 19th Century and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein novel. It’s a simple message that when man attempts to play with nature only bad things will come from it. In the film Jeff Goldblum’s character Dr. Ian Malcolm delivers a speech where he says that life can’t be controlled. Later he said the park went ahead and created dinosaurs without ever asking whether they should have done it. Those were warnings about what would happen to Jurassic Park

Like a lot of Steven Spielberg films Jurassic Park plays upon childhood innocence mixed in with big special effects. That’s shown through the owner of the park John Hammond bringing his two grandchildren Lex (Ariana Richards) and Tim (Joseph Mazzello) to the facility who get lost amongst the dinosaurs. They look at everything with wonder which brings in the audience because they would do the same if they got to go to Jurassic Park. The movie did a fantastic job with the effects as well. The T-Rex and Velociraptor were a sight to see when Jurassic Park came out. Spielberg used the dinosaurs to create both a sense of wonder and fear.

The movie is still a lot of fun and has a good message to boot.
