caste of steven spelberg It’s full of unforgettable movies, with so many titles even appearing in conversations about his best works – my personal favorite is ‘Jaws’ – it’s not hard to understand that he’s one of the highest grossing acts in the entire history of film. Why are directors doing it? Cinema. Today I am here to talk to you about one of their biggest successes, as ‘Jurassic Park’ has just joined the Amazon Prime Video catalogue.
an unlikely event
adaptation of the popular novel of the same name by Michael Crichton‘Jurassic Park’ was a phenomenon when it hit theaters in 1993, sparking an unexpected trend of dynomania that Hollywood subsequently failed to keep up with. However, what Spielberg has achieved here is to make us believe in the existence of dinosaurs in our time.
The truth is, if Spielberg agreed to tackle ‘Jurassic Park,’ it’s because It was a condition that Universal placed To finance ‘Schindler’s List’. It premiered two of the director’s most famous works in the same year, in which he also showed very different sides of his talent. When it came to hitting the ground running, both were successful, but the film we’re dealing with now tops the list of highest-grossing films in history, taking that honor four years later from ‘Titanic’. Remained till release.
However, what really matters about ‘Jurassic Park’ is its great potential an unforgettable adventure Which makes it easy to lay the foundation for the story and introduce us to the characters before something goes wrong and the dinosaurs threaten to wipe out everyone out there. And it is that the premise of the story is in science fiction but again Spielberg shows excellent control over both the action sequences and the terror, as there are scenes that would make many titles of this genre seem ridiculous.
All this without ever giving up your position the big popcorn show, because visually it also wins with its mix of practical effects and computer-generated effects. Of course, finding the right point to amaze the audience but always putting it in the service of the story it’s telling. Obviously, don’t expect a very deep script here, but one that knows very well what it wants and how to put it in the service of the audience’s enjoyment.
Several sequels would follow, the first signed by Spielberg himself, but None of this came close to what ‘Jurassic Park’ achieved.
