Based on the bestseller by Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park tells the story, both thrilling and terrifying, about genetically cloned dinosaurs that populate an island amusement park
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits excellent quality, with sharp and detailed images, and nicely rendered fine background clarity and definition. Colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues and deep, pure blacks. Occasional scenes are wanting in clarity, exhibiting minor color smearing. Contrast and shadow delineation are superb, with excellent visual information in the darker scenes. Edge enhancement is apparent, but is more noticeable in the earlier scenes, and some minor pixelization is apparent. These distractions mentioned do not make up a majority of the image quality, but their appearance
Well, the only good part about this title is the DVD-ROM main menu. After installing and running the PCFriendly compatible components, you get to see this animated picture, which looks right out of the movie. Once here, there is only one link available: DVD Bonus Materials.How disappointing. Once going to the DVD Bonus Materials section, you see that everything that is included is just links to the DVD Video material. Wondering if there was something I missed, I read the back cover to see there should be links for live Web events. Maybe the links for these events are Easter Eggs, because I certainly cannot find them anywhere.I guess I can tell you a little bit about what you can find here. The sections I enjoyed are The Making of Jurassic Park, the Early Pre-Production Meetings, and the Dinosaur Encyclopedia. Everything else I was really too upset to even think of going into, but I am sure everything is good in its own way. Ha.Playing the movie from the PCFriendly software gives all Universal's normal advertising, and then goes to the opening credits.All I can say is, hopefully The Lost World will not be as bad as this title is.
