I watched this with my six year old son and when the Brachiosaurus sneezed all over the little girl he laughed so hard he shot snot on me. Does this qualify as life imitating art? The dinosaurs end up chewing far less of the scenery than Jeff Goldblum. His knee squeeze of Richard Attenborough coupled with his knee slaps before he explains chaos theory make it the greatest performance by an actor's knees since unspecified actor had to do unspecified act on unspecified producer. Topical.

Wonderous, exciting and unforgettable. Marvel at the inventive set-pieces, the groundbreaking and still impressive effects and, crucial to the sense of adventure, Williams' magnificent theme. One of the best of its kind, this is exactly what a blockbuster should be and, tellingly, what makes it great isn't the very entertaining action parts; it's the build-up. Patience from a narrative standpoint is rewarded ten-fold. Contemporaries, take note, 'cause you sure don't make 'em like they used to.

One of a kind. Modern special effects still haven't been able to achieve the level of detail and sheer realism showcased in Jurassic Park. These days special effects just end up making everything on screen look cartoonish. In Jurassic Park you can see thousands of individual raindrops landing on the tyrannasaurus's snout, and the way all the dinosaurs move and react is incredible. Saw this on the big screen when I was 9 and I was scared as hell.

Perhaps because it’s an iconic line of dialogue, my annual viewing of Jurassic Park always reminds me of Butterfinger. I allow myself one a year: just the one. It’s a perfect blend of texture and flavor, smooth chocolate and tart peanut; every year is the best Butterfinger I’ve ever had. But any more than the one standard Butterfinger, and I start to taste the factory stale, the homogenized chemical package, the sickly sweet coating. This score brought to you by a once-a-year screening.

Effects that were insane for the time....still hold up almost 20 years later (with the exception of one or two scenes). The film is a lot funnier than I remember it being, and the Goldblum here is vintage Jeff Goldblum. The only thing I really had a problem with was deus ex machina ending, and the fact that it wrapped up *very* quickly.

Undoubtedly some plot and science silliness but I found all of that overlookable. The real reason to see this is the special effects. Even today they're pretty damn amazing. I can still remember seeing this in the theatre when I was 10 years old and being completely memorized during the first T-Rex escape, which still blows me away to this day.

Spielberg at his most idiotic. Poop and snot gags, for Christ's sake. We're supposed to care about and be scared for the precious darling little children, but I was praying they'd get killed. As if the kiddies weren't annoying enough, the other characters were equally irritating, and paper thin. And don't get me started on John Williams' syrupy score, the orchestra swelling every chance it got, telling you how to react to every single moment of the film.

The classic. For 1993, the special effects are downright beautiful. Everything about this movie just works. It wraps around you like that hoodie your mother just washed. All warm and cozy. The suspense works, the action works, the smattering of CG and the emphasis on puppetry and animatronics gives everything a real feel that only can be relived from watching Alien or Predator, where the actors can actually have something to act against. Just a great, great, great piece of cinema.

I watched it again on cinema in 3D. I have a soft spot for ambitious projects and this is such an ambitious undertaking. The special effects were done only by an 11-persons team and they did not age at all. That moment of amazement when you see the dinasours is still there and who can bring that enthusiasm about nature better than a member of the Attenborough family? If of all the geological periods everybody specifically knows Jurassic, then you have done something amazing. Bring on the 4th!

Spielberg's Jurassic Park is one of the era-defining films of the 90s, a sell-out blockbuster with pioneering modern special effects. Crichton's riveting, dense and scary novel represented a hugely challenging undertaking, but the director's vision was deftly managed: he took a science-fiction-thriller-thesis and produced family entertainment, only sacrificing the bare minimum of scientific content. A terrific rollercoaster ride with artful shot composition and nuanced ensemble drama. Iconic.

Used to be my favorite movie as a kid. Watching it again more recently, yeah it gets cheesy and stupid at times, but it's still a whole lot of fun. It's extremely quotable, the effects still work today, and the score is one of William's best. Spielberg knew exactly how to balance the CGI and animatronics to make it look convincing. And really, it's just so much fun to be able to see Dinosaurs up on the big screen.

Some of the acting is a bit over the top but they're still believable and entertaining characters. More than anything, though, it's a film about dinosaurs and it delivers that in spades. It very much captures that sense of awe and wonder at nature and does it through a well crafted adventure story.

Jurassic Park contains special effects that still seem ground breaking. It looks great and the action is fun and fast. It's like an amusement park ride in movie form. Ignore that the science of it is absurd. Of course it is, they bring back dinosaurs, so they take some shortcuts when they get to explaining how. Either way, the film is a blast. Scary for children, exciting for adults, great for dates. Awesome!

This movie came out when I was in elementary school, so of course I have some fond memories, I saw it in theaters over and over. But watching it again almost 15 years later, a lot of it falls flat. The effects have held up VERY well, the cast is entertaining, and the dialogue is pretty snappy. But it's also very silly, and made to sell toys to kids like me. There's also a lot of very big mistakes and continuity errors, more than any major motion picture that I've seen.

Through the haze of time, this film has lost a little of its in-your-face shock factor, but it's hard to care when you remember just how perfectly paced it is. I bet if you think about it, you remember that deep, slowly evolving dread as Nedrys demise gradually let the island's security deactivate and the Dinosaurs break free. Effects and especially sound are still premium today (except maybe the animatronics haha). One of the few times that a family blockbuster is also a genuine masterpiece.

Yeah, I'd never seen it, fuck you. Bad stuff, but I really hate kids in movies, and whatshername and whatshisface were far too much of a focus, especially in a movie about dinosaurs. Also, I wanted to see a velociraptor get shot in the face. And the people who say the CGI has aged well haven't seen the movie since it came out. The rest is poop jokes and total cornball. It's such a Cornballer George Bluth would be ashamed. Possibly Spielberg's worst film.

Review I should make: I thought maybe revisiting this would show me one of my favorite childhood cinematic staples was oversweetened by nostalgia, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a maturely themed and immaculately paced film remained in the place where my younger counterpart found only DINOSAWRS. Weighty ideas surrounded by great actors, unforgettable music, and exceptional use of camerawork and narrative buildup. Review I made: DUN DUN DA-DUN-DA DA DA DA DUN DUN DUN DAAAAAA

The essential dinosaur fix and is still so damn impressive all these years later. Testament to the special effect team as it still looks incredible. Even with two highly annoying kids that make you root for the dinos, you have the always cool Goldblum to even things out. An entertaining blockbuster that despite faults stands tall as one hugely enjoyable monster mash.

When I think of this film a few things immediately pop into my mind. One: when they round the bend and see all of the dinosaurs for the first time...simply magical. Two: Damn you Newman!!!! >:(. Three: How come they could mix CGI so well with physical props back then but it seems difficult for studios to do it well today?

i wish SS used his great cast better and developed character and theme beyond the perfunctory 'family unit good unchecked capitalism bad' shit (jake cole suggests that hammond is "a wry autocritique of spielberg's worst impulses"), but the spectacle is so masterfully paced, exquisitely tactile and awe-inspiring he gets away with it. i've seen this at least 20 times and i still get goosebumps when the rain starts coming and the goat vanishes, or nedry's genuinely horrific death is impending.

A technological milestone, a movie rollercoaster from the one who does those best and an experience of a lifetime, for a thirteen year old kid, whose life so far culminated when seeing dinosaurs walk again for the first time. Much later in life I have to note that when you put TWO annoying kids in a movie, it'd really be no problem at all with the dinos eating at least one.

I'd already been taken to the movies a few times in my life before getting to see this as a five- (soon-to-be six-) year-old, but this was the moment I fell in love with going to the movies. It was terrifying to me then, and still packs a few scares, largely because the effects still hold up to this day. Most of that is due to the use of practical animatronics touched up by CGI, and it all looks gorgeous. Pure spectacle, but there's a real brain behind the brawn. The ultimate summer blockbuster.

An absolute pleasure to watch. The script is tight and orderly making for an interesting narrative concept that also finds room to chauffeur a rather expansive cast for the first third of the movie, a rarity in regards to blockbusters. The score is beautiful to listen too and fits the film well. Special effects look great, despite their age, mostly having to do with Spielberg's care for details in choosing his shots. All the scenes with dinosaurs seem almost flattering to their designs.

The main idea is strong, the effects are great, Jeff Goldblum (and his lines) are fun and the occasional mixture of horror and humour is delicious. Pair these elements with a rather predictable premise, some cheesy music and a rather lazy script (mostly cardboard characters, a structure that is half build-up and half all-hell-breaks-loose) and you get yourself an enjoyable adventure tale that has memorable scenes but is far from great on the whole.

Jurassic Park is the ultimate summer blockbuster. This is Steven Spielberg's most ambitious creation to date and it changed the way we look at filmmaking. This was a major part of my childhood and I remember playing the VHS to death. Sam Neill, Laura Dern & Jeff Goldblum are all great, but the main stars here are the magnificent Dinosaurs. Stan Winstons animatronics and all the special effects set the standard and they still hold up amazingly. Jurassic Park is a monumental piece of filmmaking.

Everything about the first hour is fantastic. The sense of sophistication and adventure, the effects, the characters, etc. Climaxing with the still-incredible T-Rex attack. Sadly, the films loses more and more steam the longer it goes after that, and the finale with the raptors is just downright disappointing. Still, it earns its legacy and is a blueprint for what Blockbusters should work from.
