Retooled by Spielberg in 3D. I questioned the need for the 3D rerelease, since frame for frame the same movie but with CGI improvements. Since I did not own the DVD version, and it has been years since I saw the flick last, I thought I would give this version a try.
I was blown away by both the special effects and the over all improvement in audio. Serious depth and dimension to each and every scene. The original animatronics and CGI were pretty good in there day, but this version dials it up another notch.
I always found the kids annoying when I first watched this movie and I can't say I feel any different about them now. Who cares! the film is Spielberg in monster mode. The dinosaurs have personalities that I never appreciated the first or second time I saw this film. Even if you know what's coming the use of cinematography and sound just kept me jumping. Michael Crichton cowrote the screenplay so it stays fairly true to his original novel. Even with no added or deleted footage this film is just better in 3D. Highly recommended.
DVD 8.8/10 Blu-Ray 3D 9.6/10
How much better are we talking? I do not own a 3D tv... will I enjoy the extra CGI epicness from the DvD alone? And honestly... it's a great movie. Heck I've got the OST on my hm801. It's already a 9/10 in my book without the awesome Cgi Retouch!
