Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy

Most people have seen Jurassic Park and have very fond memories. Even though it is approaching its 20 year anniversary, this absolute classic still stands the test of time.  Steven Spielberg and Michael Crichton's magnificent imagining of the dinosaur theme park gone wrong is still as amazing as ever in this trilogy collection.

The less said about the second film, the better. The Lost World is a collection of dodgy special effects, unlikeable characters and a jarring plot note that the only real main character to return is Jeff Goldblum's Ian Malcolm, with fleeting glances of a handful of others for good reason.  The third in the trilogy, Jurassic Park III, redeems somewhat that which the second one destroyed, with the return of Sam Neill and Laura Dern in a simple but thrilling struggle for survival as they get stuck on yet another island (not again!).

The video is 1080p, and sure, does it look great.  As that helicopter swoops over the jungles of what is meant to be Costa Rica or when Neill and Dern spot their first Dinosaur, one cannot avoid being awed. In saying this, there does seem to be a general graininess to the transfer, that can be seen clearly in the fleshtones, with a slight washed out colour feel to it.  The sound though, is a beautiful DTS HD Master Audio with a full bodied surround soundtrack.  Birds tweeting around you, the thumping roar of a T-rex, it's all there and truly makes the jungle come to life.

With over 7 hours of features, the collection boasts a lot of bang-for-buck.  From commentaries to featurettes to deleted-scenes to storyboards, even the making of the game is here.   I must also mention that included are DVDs that allow you to have a single digital copy of all 3 films (with DRM, mind you) tied to a single device, but with the blu-ray handy, I doubt the usefulness.  All in all, this is a worthy collection that includes one of the best films ever made with some really interesting extras. Worth a look.
