Are you a bigger fan of the original “Jurassic Park” that launched the franchise in 1993 or this year’s reboot “Jurassic World.”
For me, the sequel is not the equal of the original. Back then, you really believed the dinos were running past Sam Neill.
Twenty-two years on, we have become so used to CGI. There was nothing special about the special effects in “Jurassic World.”
What do you think?
Jurassic Park. It had more three-dimensional characters, the effects were astounding, the story was thought-provoking, and it keeps you on edge while being entertaining. I thought Jurassic World was entertaining and had a great performance from Chris Pratt, who is bound to be a star, but the film is far from perfect. So Park wins easy.
Both entertaining, both well executed films, but Jurassic Park wins easily. The original was a landmark in Visual Effects, had moments of terrific suspense, and had characters you could really care about but also one that you could totally despise (Newman!). This one seemed like it took the original and retooled it to create a disaster film. It was a good disaster film, with some great payoff moments, but it all seemed like it had been done before, and done better. I think it improved on the second and third, both of which are entertaining, but were noticeably worse than the original. I did like seeing the park when it was actually running, and I look forward to seeing where they go from here.
Jurassic Park is definitely the better film. As mentioned above, the characters were much more developed than in Jurassic World, as was the plot and script. That being said, I loved Jurassic World and thought it was a good film. I wrote it off before I saw it thinking it was going to be terrible, but I was pleasantly surprised and I’m glad! What I really liked about it was that there were a lot of moments when I was genuinely frightened, which doesn’t happen to me often when I’m watching a film. I do think Jurassic World is the second best film in the franchise behind Jurassic Park followed by The Lost World in third.
