Review Fears that Blu-ray is facing early extinction seem woefully misplaced after experiencing the Jurassic Park trilogy on the format recently. Feature rich and re-engineered in 1080p hi-def with 7.1 lossless audio, this high resolution three disc set delivers T-Rific quality and hours of extras to tempt collectors and film fans to upgrade from DVD.

The best of three: Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy

The prize in the pack is obviously the original movie. Despite significant advances in the art of visual effects, the sense of wonder its dinosaurs engender remains undimmed. The combination computer/physical creature FX still convince and the story bolts along at a grand pace.

For home cinema fans, Jurassic Park has particular significance in that it was the first film to usher the multi-channel DTS digital sound system into movie theatres. Its subsequent appearance on LaserDisc introduced many to the concept of a separate LFE (low frequency effects) channel for the first time. For a generation, deep bass was to become synonymous with the stomp of a Tyrannosaurus and ripples in a beaker of water.

Remixed here in 7.1 DTS HD MA, the delivery of that classic soundtrack is even more impressive than I remembered. The sound design is consistently startling and John Williams’ memorable score manages to sound both familiar and startlingly fresh, all at the same time.

Visually, these remasters supersede previous versions by some degree, although clarity tends to be a little variable across the trio and there’s plenty of film grain to go around. 
 Perhaps contentiously, I rate The Lost World: Jurassic Park every bit as enjoyable as the original, albeit for quite different reasons. The second sequel is delicious monster movie hokum that balances humour with a torrent of well-staged action sequences.

The movie also marks the first collaboration between Spielberg and cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, resulting in a darker vision which translates well to BD. 

JP3 is the frothy cappuccino which rounds off the Jurassic meal, less memorable but welcome none the less.
