Jurassic Park Collection [DVD]
About this deal
Celebrate one of the biggest movie franchises of all time with the Jurassic Park Trilogy Collection!
While it'd be nice to have some of those digital fixes in, I'm much happier having the sky actually look blue! I can understand to distaste towards the front cover art but it doesn't really detract anything from the set and it's varied enough to be decent on it's own, plus it's nice to get some variant covers instead of simply getting the 93 poster over and over (tho they still included that option in the american set). Contrast levels can also get a little heavy in extremely dark sequences, encroaching on details that should likely be more visible than they are. Buttoned-up executive Claire (Bryce Dallas-Howard) oversees operations from a control room filled with computer whizzes, who notices trouble brewing at the paddock where a brand-new dinosaur resides.The Lost World attempts to one-up the original in both dinosaur action and themes, but struggles while away from the main island. Not all scenes are like this; scenes bathed in light in the jungle, especially if they involve a dinosaur, seem to suffer less from this issue. Depth is spectacular, contrast leans dark but surprisingly conscientious of underlying details, and the HDR components accentuate the radiance of truck lights and flares.
The image quality is not so massive a leap as The Lost World's 4k release, but many scenes do benefit from the HDR, with closeups of the actors in particular looking great. Yes, Jurassic World improves upon the previous two entries in this franchise, once again getting back to the wide-eyed wonder of the first film and, by extension, introducing a new generation of movie-goers to the potential that it holds, all while setting up an atmosphere ripe for a monster to tear apart. In my previous comparison review, I compared the Jurassic Park Superbit (Japan) edition and the standard Region 2 edition, and both were nearly identical. The lackluster reception to The Lost World didn't hit the brakes on the dino-franchise's momentum, but it did keep Spielberg -- and, for the most part, Crichton -- at arm's length from the third installment, Jurassic Park III.
Well for one it was the first home edition to feature a DTS track, and not only that, it's always been widely regarded as a benchmark movie for showing how different the two sound formats can be. The film was a phenomenal box office success and a landmark in the development of computer-generated special effects.
