Jurassic Park 
(Steven Spielberg, 1993, 127 min, USA, English, Color, DCP)

The prehistoric and the state-of-the-art meet in Spielberg’s game-changing adaptation of Michael Crichton’s novel, which lays its scene on a Costa Rican island newly populated with regenerated saurians. The CGI was all anyone could talk about when it was released, but today you may notice the extensive use of sophisticated analog effects, and of course the peerless ensemble cast including Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Newman from Seinfeld, and the “six-foot turkey” kid—the human factor that makes Jurassic Park truly timeless.

“The enthralling man-vs.-nature parable based on the late Michael Crichton’s best-selling novel hasn’t aged one bit.” Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post
