  • Jurassic Park

    Jurassic Park (1993)

    Rated PG-13, 127 min. Directed by Steven Spielberg. Starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough.

    Austin Parks Foundation: Movies in the Park: As expected, the dinosaurs rule the show. Without them on screen, Jurassic Park tends to bog down in occasionally unnecessary explanations. Though, to be fair, the dinosaurs really are brilliant. Spielberg seems to be trying so very hard for that elusive “Gosh, Wow, Sense of Wonder!” that it all looks strained in spots. Of all people, he should know that dinosaurs literally embody that spirit – you don't need much of anything else to prop them up, but the director gamely tries, over-employing his trademark sunset lighting and spectacular crane and tracking shots. This is academic, though. Every kid in America, and nearly every adult, too, will see this picture and may go see it again, if only for the dinosaurs – in newly added 3-D.
