Watched the 3-D version today and thought the new effects were decent but they didn't add much to the film. As for the film itself....I still remember doing a double feature of this and WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT. I watched the Tina Turner pic first and after watching JP I told my friend that Ike was a lot scarier than any of the dinosaurs. I'm not sure what it is but I've never really found JP to be as great as most people. I think it's a good movie that held up incredibly well but it's just never been scary to me. MAJOR SPOILER but in 1993 it was hard for me to be scared and this was proven true in 2013. It's just hard to be scared when you know damn well that the director isn't going to have the guts to kill off one of the major characters. Knowing that no one is going to get killed just takes away from the drama being built up in the scenes. You notice the people who are killed are in the story for no other reason than to get killed. Outside of that I think the film holds up incredibly well. The John Williams score is terrific and I thought Spielberg captured all the right notes on what to show us of the dinosaurs and when. The special effects are as impressive today as when the film was first released and I think I'd say that nothing has really topped them in all the years since 1993.
