About this deal

Perhaps the most important aspect to note in the differences between the Blu-ray versions is the realism of the dinosaurs. The slight changes to the coloring of each film release has an impact on how the CGI and practical effect components look, and can disrupt the seamlessness of the effects. Being that this film was remarkable for the way it managed to perfect its computer generated effects blend them with the real props, these discrepancies can take away from the original beauty of Jurassic Park. Despite the color differences, the movie's effects are still appreciated by audiences today, but it's important to be aware of how each release version can make them look a little different.

Return to Jurassic Park: Something Survived (HD, 17 min) — The fifth segment focuses on the more technical aspects of the production, particularly the film's conclusion and how it was essentially written into the story on a whim. The digital and practical effects are also talked about extensively, often closely looking at specific action sequences, while several interviews mention the great deal of fun everyone had. Like the previous pieces, viewers also learn quite a bit about the sound and foley effects, which is amusing. Deleted Scenes (SD) — A couple dialogue sequences which didn't make it to the final cut, and they're not terribly interesting. Archival Featurettes (SD, 84 min) — As in the first disc, this section gathers together the bonus material from past DVD releases of the sequel. The making-of piece is the standard fare exploring every aspect of the production and followed by basically a shorter version of the same featurette. Then there's an amusing animated short from ILM as a thank you to Spielberg and an interesting conversation with author Michael Crichton on the Jurassic Park novels. Arriving with a fresh 1080p/VC-1 encode (1.85:1), 'Jurassic Park' sparkles on Blu-ray. It's a definite improvement over previous releases, showing a great deal more in terms of definition and resolution. Some of the softer portions of the image are clearly the result of age, and most occur during the several visual effects sequences.Return to Jurassic Park: The Third Adventure (HD, 25 min) — The final installment to the six-part documentary features certain members of the cast and crew reminiscing about the production and working with director Joe Johnston. Viewers can enjoy lots of good BTS footage while everyone talks about practical effects, set design, shooting on location as well as in a soundstage and the choice of the Spinosaurus as the new villain. Really interesting stuff, especially if you're a fan of the movie. Return to Jurassic Park: Dawn of a New Era (HD, 25 min) — The first in a six-part documentary series discusses not only the making of the movie but also gives viewers an inside look at the original direction filmmakers were going to take before realizing CGI was the way to go. Cast & crew interviews are mostly recollections on working with Stan Winston's special effects, surviving a real-life hurricane and working with Spielberg.

Spielberg is also at his best in building suspense and anticipation, making audiences wait until just the right moment to reveal the colossal, prehistoric creatures. Even as doctors Grant (Sam Neill), Sattler (Laura Dern) and Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) finally arrive at Hammond's (Richard Attenborough) island, the narrative takes its time, showing first the huge electrical fences that hint at something dangerous being caged. Later, we see the reactions of three characters, before we're finally allowed to see the once extinct animals for ourselves. The way in which the camera slowly pans to look up at the Brachiosaurus remains just as inspiring and jaw-dropping as ever. Then, we move to a long shot of dinosaurs by a lake which tops it all off. Not surprisingly, the latest genetically-engineered installment to the franchise runs amok with an excellent, highly-detailed HEVC H.265 encode that's well worth the price of admission. The movie was shot on a combination of Super 35mm, 70mm and the Red Epic Dragon capable of 6K resolution, and the source was later mastered in a 2K digital intermediate. Immediately apparent is the improvement in definition, boasting several stunning, razor-shaper scenes, including the fast-paced action moments, such as the now-infamous Owen riding with the Raptors at night sequence. It's not quite the night and day difference we'd expected with resolution levels waver slightly during some of the CG-heavy sequences and a mild, almost trivial instances of aliasing along the sharpest edges of a few buildings. But this 4K presentation is sharper with better clarity of individual hairs, the fabric and stitching of clothing, and in every blade of grass and pebble on the jungle floor. Facial complexions are highly revealing as well, showing every wrinkle and pore in the faces of the cast, particularly during close-ups.Unfortunately, the first sequel is proof that lightning rarely strikes twice, even for the likes of someone as highly-regarded as Steven Spielberg. 'The Lost World' (which shares only a title with the novel by the late Michael Crichton) doesn't necessarily try to repeat the success of its predecessor, but it clearly wants to relive the same sense of wonder and exhilaration. It's doesn't quite succeed at capturing our imagination or sparking that same awe-inspiring level as the first movie, but that isn't to say it doesn't come close at times. Then again, there's really only one scene which comes to mind, involving a pair of T-Rexes, their newborn dino, a large, extended RV trailer and lots of loud crashing roars amid a rainstorm. Unlike in the US, where all four movies were included in a single set, Jurassic World has been released separately in the UK. The 4K disc is based on a 2K digital intermediate and is presented in its original 2.00:1 aspect ratio with an HDR10 encode. appearance especially when shown through a Projection system. The Region 2 SUPERBIT is the disc to own for those concerned We say: This surprisingly successful Jurassic reboot looks and sounds stunning on Ultra HD Blu-ray.
