NO COMMENT.

Got to be the first; good story, groundbreaking FX and Spielberg at the top of his game for set pieces.

The Lost World; a couple of good set-pieces but absolutely no plot (unlike the book, which I consider very underrated).

III: Even less plot, stupid characters, sloppy direction and poor FX. However, if I was still 8 years old it would probably be my film of the year.

I have to be controversial and go with Jurassic Park III - thought it was superb, a much quicker pace and better action sequences and also dispenses with the sentimentality of the first two movies!

My favourite is still the first one. Something about that t-rex sequence.

I liked the third one but i pretty much hated the spinosaurus, what's wrong with the T-rex?.

Definitely the first, captures the whole sense of wonder and excitement that's present in all the best Spielberg movies. The T-Rex section with the jeeps in the storm is one of the classic movie moments.

The second film is really dodgy, much preferred the book. Only worth watching for the FX.

The third one was sort of ok - inoffensive stuff really. At least it zipped along quite merrily. Didn't like the end though. Wasn't gonna bother with the DVD of it but the lure of behind the scenes at ILM and Stan Winston's Workshop was too much for an effects freak like meself.

How many people have got the first two in the box set but quite fancy the trilogy box set with the bonus fourth disc? You gonna trade up? I'm not sure yet.....

Yes, "Lost World" for me as well. I thought it was more exciting than the first and it had a pleasingly nasty edge of cruelty which I haven't seen from Spielberg since "Jaws".

Personally I like the third better, it was fast paced didn't have any real slow parts and the introduction of the pteranadons was excellent. I also didn't mind the ending because there is one moment where the look on one of the raptors faces is priceless

the one i enjoyed most at the cinema was jurassic park but i have never liked it as much after reading the book (which i have now done several times) because it is so good, and so much better than the film. sure, you have to make sacrifices to film a book but they watered it down so much it's a real loss.

so now i'd probably go for the third one, although my preference would be none of them.

Cool

Loved the first one. Classic Spielberg set pieces galore even if the story was very slight. Hated the messy,illogical second. Third felt like an average ho-hum adventure flick but passed an hour and a half in a relatively painless manner. The Spinosaurus was seriously taking liberties with the archaelogical evidence from the basic curiosity reading I did online. It may have been bigger than T-Rex but from online descriptions it was nowhere near as powerfully built. Some water scenes with a beast like lipluridon would've been far more interesting.

Part one, the others don't even come close. I remember hearing a great deal of positive reaction to number 3 with people going on about how great Macy was etc. I thought it was the worst film of the summer and couldn't wait to escape the cinema. Much worse than Pearl Harbour, Tomb Raider etc.

Neither JP2 or 3 are fit to lick the boots of the first one. I can still remember as a teenager going to see JP it's first week, i sat in the front and when the brachiosaur first appeared, i turned round and witnessed 250 gobs hanging down so far they were almost touching the floor. "Dr Grant, my dear Dr. Sattler, welcome...... to Jurassic Park". To this day it gives me chills to watch that scene. So sad to see that the Hollywood Blockbuster has declined to it's present pitiful levels in the years since.
