In my view, the first movie was best out of all three as it was the one that most directly followed the book of the two that were even in literature. Although it had many major and some subtle changes, it was still altogether a very enjoyable movie and inspired me to read Michael Crichton's fantastic novels. However there were many parts in the book I had wished to see in the movie, such as the poisoning of the eggs by Dr. Grant. And the living of Muldoon as well. Of course the movie had its own creative and shocking moments such as the recreation of the attack by the Tyrannosaurus while on the first tour, just after the power and systems were turned off. As well as the ending with the raptor invasion and clash with the pesky Rex, coming in unintentionally to save the day. Was never caught in the books, however it was a very admirable action for the production and shooting of the movie.
The Lost World showed very little comparison between the movie and story, both veering off into entirely different directions. Sharing only a basic idea of going to the islands, the movie was purely subtle scan-through and enjoyment, while the book was informative and explained everything, along with the returning of our favorite heathen and morally antagonistic character: Dodgson.
Jurassic Park III remained as a complete upset to me, appearing as a poor attempt to continue on with what was an amazing series. The idea of the Spinosaurus was not intriguing and very clever, however the movie remained with poor plot and eye-catching attention as well as an unforgivable sense of predictability that left me uninterested while viewing the film. The ideas of the Velociraptors became rather annoyances than ones that sparked critical thinking as to what was filtering through their own minds, what were they planning. Not to mention the while seemingly cool and interesting idea of communicating with them, only appeared as poorly stated, insignificant, and spanned for little time in this short film.
I commend to all who enjoy the others more than the first and I respect your opinions, however I simply view otherwise.
P.S.: Why wasn't eye in the movie??? I am the biggest
With true regard to the films,
