Still holds up

One of the biggest movies of the 1990s, and it totally holds up. Sure, a little over-theatrical, but that is what we expect from Spielberg. Most impressively is how well the special effects have aged; while impressive CGI, Spielberg was smart enough to not rely on exclusively on early CGI, and instead went with more realistic animatronics.

Classic film

Before this movie, Star Wars was the height of special effects. People didn't drive SVUs. After this movie, everyone was rushing to make their special effects more realistic, and buying Ford Explorers. Coincidence? I think not!

Magic

For those of us who were kids in the 90s, very few movie-going experiences will ever be able to compare with "Jurassic Park." It was all anyone could talk about for months. We'd just never seen anything like it. That was a time when science was just starting to hit its stride in a lot of areas like cloning and genetics, and the possibilities seemed endless. Dinosaurs back from the dead with a little bit of mosquito blood? Why not!

The music still brings a chill to my spine and a little sense of that childlike wonder comes flooding back when I hear it. As a kid, I was genuinely frightened by a lot of parts of it. Now as an adult, I can more fully appreciate a lot of the humor and the lessons that it teaches. And I can even see how it helped to shape a lot of my opinions on things such as how science relates to society and the role responsibility plays in scientific discovery. This will always be a classic in my mind.

Jurclassic movie

I apologize for the above awful pun. But this is one of the best movies of that marvelous decade known as the 90s. It's a great movie for kids - not particularly gruesome nor scary but has relatable characters and memorable lines. Also with Jeff Goldblum as a lothario mathematician who spends a lot of time looking insouciant with his shirt unbuttoned. And dinosaurs. And Newman.
Newman!
And Samuel L Jackson, smoking like a train. I realize a lot of what I have just written makes it sound that it isn't a great movie for kids but just ignore me and watch it anyway.

Amazing

This is one of the best movies of the 90s and one of the best science fiction movies of all time.
