Jurassic Park 3D
In theaters Friday
I’m generally disinterested when it comes to 3D, but I have to admit that there are some movies that are perfectly suited for the format. A huge summer blockbuster like Jurassic Park fits that description to a T. If you’ve got to throw down the cash for a pricey 3D ticket, you could damn well do worse than Jurassic Park 3D, which hits theaters for a one-week engagement this Friday. I got to see a short preview of the 3D release this past weekend, and one of the movie’s most unforgettable scenes — the water-rippling, pants-shitting encounter with the Tyrannosaurus — is genuinely stunning on a huge IMAX screen. 3D lends itself best to movies with a large scale, so a movie about dinosaurs? Pretty much a no-brainer.
Even better, it’s a genuinely good movie that is rightly considered a classic, and this is the first time in a long time that many of us will have to see it on the big screen again, which is where it really demands to be seen. I may be a 3D skeptic, but I’ll still see you in the theater this weekend.
