Jurassic Park

There’s not much to say about Jurassic Park. It was released 22 years ago and it holds up remarkably well. The effects are just as good today as they were then; the story is paced well all the way through; the characters are easy to get attached to. There are very few flaws I can find with it. The most obvious being the ending scene with the T-Rex sneaking into the visitors center to save the crew from the gang of raptors. From when I first saw it to now, it still has the same emotional pull on me. If by some hand of fate you haven’t seen this classic movie I’ll summarize shortly. A billionaire invests his money into creating the greatest amusement park the world has seen. To pass final legal matters, he invites a lawyer, an archaeologist, a paleobotanist, a chaotician, and two kid to convince them. By the end of the movie things don’t go exactly as John Hammond planned. The story is simple enough that it brings in all audiences.Then the actors bring the world to life. Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Golblum, Richard Attenborough, and Samuel L. Jackson are the big leagues leading the others through this ordeal; and Sam Jackson is just a minor character! Everyone does their job phenomenally. Then if that wasn’t enough, the score is one of the most iconic soundtracks released. I already praised the effects, but they really could go up against most movies today. There’s a soft spot in my heart for this movie because it was the first one I ever saw; so that may be why I hold this in such high esteem. It’s just such a shame that there were never any other movies made in this potential franchise. I hear there were some cheap knockoffs released but I don’t acknowledge those. When Jurassic World is released next month it has some mighty big footprints to fill in my eyes.
