Boogie Nights (Paul Thomas Anderson, 1997)
A rich scientist invites a handful of young researchers to visit his brand new theme park on a remote desert island. But nothing could have prepared them for what they’re about to discover: Jurassic Park! Light years from what they believed possible, the professor has populated the island with creatures of an other time, the mighty and incredible dinosaurs. Along with the professor’s grandchildren, the group embarks on the park’s very fist guided tour, when everything goes atrociously wrong… Brachiosaurs may very well be cute an’ all, but when faced with the real deal, can man survive world’s fiercest predator? And in 3D on top of it all?
Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece is back on our screens to amaze a new generation of kids not yet aware of the just how scary a few dinosaurs can be. The 3D doesn’t really add much to the mindboggling original special effects - a wondrous mix of animatronics and CGI - but the pleasure of reliving one of Film’s most entertaining adventures on the big screen is priceless. Twenty years after the film’s release, the dinos’ realism is as stunning as ever. The magical atmosphere Splieberg created with the help of John Williams’ magnificent soundtrack, a sense of pacing no one can equal and some pretty perfect characters (yes Goldblum, you and you glasses will forever be cool) still jolts the audience with excitement and exhilarating fear. Even the approximate plot and the creepy ever-smiling kids don’t matter; when it comes to rides, Jurassic Park is as thrilling as it gets.
