An adventure 65 million years in the making.
Steven Spielberg's sci-fi, monster-movie classic. On a remote Pacific island, an experiment has taken place: Dr John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) is creating a zoo/theme park and the main attractions are living dinosaurs, brought to life using fossilized DNA remains. Hammond's lofty ideas turn deadly though after he invites five visitors (Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum included) to preview the facilities. Nature this big can't be contained and the island's guests find themselves in wildnerness, battling to survive among the prehistoric predators.
A watershed moment in CGI effects, Jurassic Park became the highest grossing film of all time on it's release in 1993. It was surpassed by James Cameron's Titanic in 1997.

One of Spielberg's most entertaining masterpieces. With visual effects and CGI brilliant for its time, this film gave me a feeling of suspense that most contemporary horror movies can't achieve. Like most Spielberg films, you know that Jurassic Park will have a human touch and an uplifting spirit, which it does in abundance. It also comes with a message: don't tamper with nature.
