Jurassic Park 3D : Revisiting the classic after 20 years

1993

Stan Winston studios, US

Steven Spielberg was showing his movie to George Lucas. According to what I read George Lucas’s eyes began to tear up after seeing the movie. He said “It was like one of those moments in history, like the invention of the light bulb or the first telephone call” he said. “A major gap had been crossed, and things were never going to be the same.”

Pondicherry, INDIA

I was 3 or 4 years old (I am not that good in mathematics) and on a fine evening I heard my mom and dad saying that we’re going for a movie. When I asked my dad what is the movie about, he replied “They made a movie about some extinct animal called Dinosaur”. That is when I first saw the movie “Jurassic Park”. Even though I couldn’t understand a single word in the movie (I am not good in English either) I could see the grandeur of the movie and how it’s going to change the way we see films. From that time on I have seen Jurassic park several times.

April , 2013

I opened the newspaper and I saw the advertisement saying “Jurassic Park: 3D”. I was so excited to know that my most favorite movie is hitting the theatres again in 3D. From the day it’s released I was so eager to watch this in theatre and yesterday my wish got fulfilled at PVR cinemas. Before talking about the movie experience, let me tell you why this movie is really close to my heart.

First thing about the movie is, it is the creative marvel of my favorite writer (Michael Crichton) and favorite director (Steven Spielberg). I used to see this movie whenever I feel bored. When I was attending my first job interview I was asked to speak on any topic I like and I spoke about Jurassic park and guess what. I got the job!! Now you can see why the movie is special to me.

Coming to the movie experience, Jurassic park 3D is one of the best 3D movies which succeeded the 2D to 3D post conversion. Usually the conversion techniques suck for most of the times (some big budget movies went without a trace due to faulty post conversion process). StereoD, the company which performed the post conversion of the movie and Spielberg has taken pains to add depth to each and every element in each frame. For a moment you will feel like that movie’s shot in stereoscopic 3D. The conversion was that accurate. I got goose bumps when I saw the brachiosaurs sequence in the movie. It was so grand and awesome in the big screen

The visual effects were so authentic even after the 3D conversion. I still can’t imagine how they could make such a wonderful movie in the 90’s with so much accuracy. I am very much sure that nobody can recreate the same quality if they claim for a re make. And the sound quality is superb. That too, during the T-rex chasing sequence you will feel that the 120 bucks you’ve paid is completely worth it.

 If you ask me to rate it on the scale of 5, I would say a full 5.

It’s a classic and its proven again to be one in 3D too!

I’ve also attached the 48 minute featurette on how the movie was made. This documentary was originally released in 1994 in order to celebrate the first anniversary of  the movie. Have fun!
