There are few movies in the world we call “perfect” but Jurassic Park is one of them. Find out why…
There’s a magic to a perfect movie. You sit down and turn it on, and you remember exactly where you were and what was going on in your life when it changed. For me, I was sitting on the edge of my parent’s bed when they popped in a VHS of Jurassic Park after it was released on video in 1994.
I was not allowed to see it in theaters, that would come later during a rerelease, but I was still swept up in the insanity and wonderment that was entering the park.
The John Williams score carries you into the imagination of Spielberg, Crichton, and Koepp, a place where dinosaurs walk the earth and science makes anything possible.
Until it gets dangerous.
Today I want to celebrate the genius of Jurassic Park and talk about what makes it a perfect movie.
