I had the good fortune of taking some time off this evening to see Jurassic Park 3D (2013). I’m not a huge fan of 3D, and usually opt to see a film in standard perspective, when given the option, but this was different. This is the same film from 1993, with no additional footage besides some added lens flares to create the illusion of depth. Several point-of-view action sequences worked beautiful in Spieberg’s “re-boot”.
Remember the fantastic Gallimimus stampede with Sam Neill and kids running toward the camera? Now the fleeing dinos are in our seats. The raptor scenes are even better. The angular and snouty look of these villains works well in 3D. At one point after a raptor jumped into an air duct popcorn went flying! Great fun. Take your kids to see JP 3D. Even better, encourage them to read Michael Crichton’s novel!
