I have to agree with the above ^^ post. It is fun to read these reviews because they tap right into the impacts/technicalities of sight and sound. And they are typically spot-on.

I'm torn about this box set... Namely because the crown jewel of the set is movie 1.... Movies 2 and 3 kind of seem like they are disposable. I wish there was an option just to buy the first. I may with this out a while and pick up a used copy once the prices drop considerably.

My wife bought the JP Trilogy from Amazon around three weeks ago for only $30 shipped. I couldn't believe the crazy low price.

It was an announced early Christmas present but I'm not allowed to fire up the discs until Dec 25th

Re: Jurassic Park - Blu-Ray Review

Just watched the first of the JP trilogy on BD.

Wow!

PQ didn't bother me at all... looked great to my eyes. Not as crisp and vibrant as some of the best, obviously, but it had a bit of an aged feel which is befitting of an older movie. So I'm okay with it.

I'm going a bit further with the audio. FANTASTIC. I, like many on this forum, hold Dark of the Moon as one of the best audio presentations... and it is phenomenal. But, I think I actually enjoyed the JP audio more... only because it wasn't a constant attack from all channels. When the surround channels are tapped (the directional roar of dino... or snapping of branches) it is so perfectly placed that it enhances the immersion factor. Sometimes, an overload of surround sound can get lost on the listener... in the case of the original JP, this is not the case. Not to mention, the bass. BOOM!

Excellent, excellent, excellent...

Re: Jurassic Park - Blu-Ray Review

Audio wise all 3 are very good...BUT video wise I'm afraid it goes down hill from JP1 and 3 is no better than an upconverted DVD!!

Re: Jurassic Park - Blu-Ray Review

JP II is a pretty poor transfer..all 3 have knockout soundtracks

Re: Jurassic Park - Blu-Ray Review

Thanks for this review too. I picked up this set for dirt cheap on black friday, but I haven't found the time to watch it yet. I do enjoy all three films, but the first is definitely the best. I've heard some complaints about the video quality but I'm sure I won't really notice anything. The audio is what makes JP the experience that it is anyway imo.

Re: Jurassic Park - Blu-Ray Review

I also picked up the blu ray during christmas time, forgot how much i liked the movie. Does anyone know how low the bass goes during some of the "stomping" scenes?
