tardis_stowaway: TARDIS under a starry sky and dark tree (allosaurus bitches)
I went to see Jurassic Park in 3D.  I really enjoyed seeing this movie, which I hadn't seen in years, on the big screen again.  I would rather have just had a 2D rerelease, but the 3D was done well enough not to be annoying (aside from the ticket price and having to wear uncomfortable plastic glasses over my real glasses, of course).  Getting to see everything huge and with a big sound system was the draw, and it was totally worth it.  The dinosaur effects have held up surprisingly well (although we now know that some of those species should have had feathers), and it's still a well told action story (even if some of the dialog is a little hokey). I love that in addition to the fear, the movie also conveys a strong sense of wonder at the dinosaurs.  The score is a big part of that.  As an adult, I have an enhanced appreciation for all the shots of Jeff Goldblum with a gratuitously open shirt.

I saw Jurassic Park when it was first released in theaters.  I was nine, young enough that my parents didn't normally let me see PG-13 movies, but my love of dinosaurs made me beg to see this one.  I may even have already read the book.  After first going themselves to check it out, my parents decided to let me go.  It was definitely scary for kid-me, but also tremendously fun and thrilling.

In honor of Jurassic Park, I recommend this extremely silly and joyously dino-centric fanvid made a few years ago by [livejournal.com profile] bironic.  The entry is here.
