Okay, I remember the summer this film came out, just shy of 20 years ago! (That’s insane!) Still, I cannot wait to see this this weekend. “Jurassic Park” changed what I came to expect of films after viewing it. It’s a thrill to be able to go with family and friends to see it, particularly my ten year old cousin. To think, I was only a year or two older than he is now when I went to see this in theaters.
Will you be going to see it?April 5, 2013 at 1:52 pm #98268
I’m seeing this. Love this movie (and franchise……even the 3rd one).April 5, 2013 at 8:10 pm #98269
Boom…..boom……boom…..”ïmpact tremors. C’mon, c’mon. We have to leave, now.April 5, 2013 at 9:09 pm #98270
Saw it last night at the IMAX- Incredible! Great print of the film, 3D looks smooth- like watching a giant Blu-Ray. And trailer for new Superman looks sweet too- enjoy, it’s worth the price of admission to see it in IMAX.

Just got back from seeing it and loved it. This was the first thing I ever saw Laura Dern in and I have been in-love ever since. With the heartbreaking cancelation of her HBO series, Enlightened, I’m really hoping she can segue back into film (and not just barely-there supporting roles like the one in The Master, even though she did get a nice chunk of screentime with Adams, Phoenix, and Hoffman) and land something huge.April 6, 2013 at 11:42 am #98272
I’m looking forward to re-watch this movie because I think very good, one of the best blockbusters ever and it was released in the year I was born so I wasn’t able to watch at the theaters lolApril 6, 2013 at 7:36 pm #98273
I’m hoping they do this in 2016 with Twister in honor of its 20th anniversary. Haha. The 90s contained some of the best disaster films… Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Twister… I even liked Dante’s Peak (Pierce Brosnan, Linda Hamilton) and Volcano (Tommy Lee Jones, Anne Heche). Twister may be my favorite though, with Jurassic Park right under it.April 7, 2013 at 4:40 pm #98274
This was phenomenal. Some of it has obviously aged, but overall I was shocked at how well it held up on the big screen, especially considering it’s 20 years old!
The beginning of the night was not fun, as the theater was heckled by a group of teenagers who apparently thought seeing the “old Jurassic Park” was a lame idea. Testament to Spielberg’s genius and to the overall quality of his film, however, the teenagers finally quieted down – on their own – as soon as the first dinosaur appeared and quiet they remained until the end. The entire audience was rapt as if we were all watching something that isn’t two decades old. My cousin had a ball, and my mother and I reminisced.
One thing that plagued this films reviews the first time was the “lack of character development.” I scream bullsh*t. I think the characters were all perfectly developed and totally believable and relatable. I’m sorry, but in a movie about dinosaurs I don’t think you can do much better. Also, loved, loved, LOVED Dern, Goldblum (what a genius, this man) and Attenborough.

Twister hold up really well. I’ve caught bits and pieces of it over the years (it’s constantly played on tv). What you really notice is the great work that Helen Hunt did in that movie (this was before her Oscar win)April 13, 2013 at 1:24 pm #98276
Yes it’s an interesting cast overall, and I thought the chemistry b/wn Hunt and Paxton is good. This was back when I actually LIKED PSH.
Judging from your reactions I think I’ll catch this again. I see no reason why not. I could use a visceral scare at the moment.
