Jurassic Park (1993)
If you asked ten people on the street what the best Spielberg film of all is, you’d probably get well over half of them say Jurassic Park. It’s without doubt, even now, probably his most seminal and cinematically groundbreaking picture, taking the steps James Cameron and ILM made with CGI in Terminator 2: Judgment Day in 1991 and evolving them to a whole new level in creating the most ‘realistic’ impression of dinosaurs ever on screen. Spielberg also managed to craft a fantastic script and story, not to mention excellent performances, out of a family story fused with Michael Crichton’s chilling near-future dystopian theatrics.
Imitated a million times over the last twenty five years, it ages like a fine wine.
