Do you remember the feeling of awe when you saw this in the theater in 1993 and the first dinosaurs appeared? The same emotions may emerge again when you watch Jurassic Park on Blu-ray. Steven Spielberg’s dino-epic broke new ground in visual effects, and while the sequels (The Lost World, Jurassic Park III) got progressively worse story-wise, the technology kept advancing. This long-awaited box set includes a new 5-part documentary as well as a host of legacy special features from the DVDs. The video is pristine and the audio is as powerful as it gets, making this collection a must-have for those willing to push their home theaters to the limit.
