After years of considering what all around film is my favorite I keep coming back to Jurassic Park. Maybe it's because I've loved dinosaurs since I was a kid, maybe it's because I've loved Spielberg films since ET, who knows. What I do know is It was an jaw-dropping masterpiece when it was released in the theaters, and will always hold a special place in my heart.... That being said, it was decades ahead of its time with special effects, and has spectacular acting and actors; beautiful locations; and a great script. These movies are also really great for education and to show people how powerful and unique these creatures really were! It's very necessary to watch it on a huge screen with a high end surround sound system if you haven't seen it before to get the whole "experience". I would recommend watching all 3 back to back if you have the time and opportunity. Once again, look down the whole list of reviews on this site and you will not find ONE negative one! Okay, one by a moron that can't even upload an avatar, lol. I mean look at the comments too, everyone is quoting it because we've all seen it about a billion times because it was THAT GREAT!
The acting, visual effects, and overall awe factor is enough to leave you breathless. The film pulls you in right when the "old" Rose tells you to shut up & she's going to tell you the story. From then on it's like you're instantly teleported back 100 years to when the events actually took place. From the beautiful locations to the perfect casting, this will always remain in my top 3 films of all time.
