    Jurassic Park


    25th Anniversary Screening.

    I watched this in IMAX five years ago for the 20th anniversary. It was extremely awesome. Tonight's presentation was a little more underwhelming, mostly because someone decided it'd be a good idea to crop the aspect ratio. When Grant and Sattler see the Brachiosaurus for the first time, its head is completely cut off from the screen! I'm sure not everyone is bothered by this sort of thing, but it was kinda disappointing.

    Anyway, Jurassic Park is still a classic, so there's that. The first T-Rex attack is an all-timer, that roar damn near melted my face off in the theater.

    I actually kinda enjoyed this? I mean, it's a bit of a mess, especially the too-chaotic-for-it's-own-good finale, but it's a pretty fun action flick. The cast is entertaining, it's got solid gore, the practical effects are pretty good early on until the weak CGI takes over. The ending is just weird though.

    Pretty much everything Thomas Jane said got a huge laugh out of my theater.

    I thought LaMotta was gonna unzip his pants at the end and pull out a giant fake cock.

    So I lucked out and discovered that my local theater was playing this in 70mm. Ticket price was a bit higher but I figured it was worth it to see the "Roadshow" cut. They even gave out these little booklets with info on the movie and everything. Very cool stuff.

    There's something very exciting about seeing honest-to-god film being projected on the big screen. It isn't quite as...crisp (I think that's the right word) as digital, but it feels so…
