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movie came out in 1993 a little over 26 years ago so a lot has been discovered since then so of course it's going to be out of date somewhat 2.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 😊
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.

For film not originally shot in 3D, it is surprising how many shots lend themselves to the 3D experience - even Spielberg admits on the extras that he must have had one eye on a 3D film. The 3D works well, although its not super obvious - no waving stuff towards the camera.
The image is crisp and the blu ray transfer appears well done (although there is one longish scene with Jeff Goldblum with a massive lens / light flare on the screen). Weirdly the extra detail does make the dinosaurs look a little less 'real', but not overly so.
The film itself most people know. Looks a little dated in places, but well executed.
The extras section is quite interesting as it deals with how the 3D was achieved (you do get the impression that a company has approached the studio / producers and sold them the idea though - not that that is bad, because its done well). How much involvement Spielberg had is questionable, but he turns up in the extras.
I decided to buy the 3D version because I thought that with all the animations of the original the transfer would be spectacular. I was encouraged by the successful transfer of the Titanic.
I was right, but beyond this the sense of space is not only seen in the animations but also in the scenes with the actors themselves.
I was aware of the "product placement" of the two Jeep models Wrangler & Cherokee as at the time I used to drive a Cherokee but in 3d they look magnificent also.
I watched this on a 3D LG TV and a 3D Sony Blu ray player and I cannot think of a better and seamless production, objects and creatures jump out of the screen1.
Although by now I know the script inside out it was riveting all the same.
A good purchase.
