 A DVD Journal Double Feature: Jurassic Park and The Lost World

 Jurassic Park 3 Review
Jurassic Park 3’s plot, like the plot of virtually all of Harryhausen’s films, is simple: a group of humans must survive an environment chock-full of oversized and angry carnivores.
Jurassic Park 3 looks even better coming from a summer filled with animated or semi-animated films that were either commercial or artistic flops.
Naturally, the many dinosaurs in the film are not necessarily paleontologist-approved, but Harryhausen’s dinosaurs weren’t the most biologically accurate creatures either, and Jurassic Park 3 isn’t a documentary anyway.

Isla Sorna, as viewers of "Jurassic Park II" may recall, is the second island to host a manmade dinosaur colony; the original batch on nearby Isla Nublar were wiped out after the end of the first film.
"Jurassic Park III" is the least of the "Jurassic Park" movies, but with all those dinosaurs charging around looking so real, it still provides plenty of creature effects bang for your buck.
Although the script lacks both novelty and originality, "Jurassic Park III" is moderately entertaining and technically commendable.

Though the film raked in approximately $180 million last year, everyone involved in "Jurassic Park III" was reportedly unhappy with the story and wants another chance, resulting to an end in the series.
Crichton wrote the novels for "Jurassic Park" and the sequel "The Lost World", on which the movies are based.

 SpielbergFilms.com - Jurassic Park IV
One of the biggest rumors is the claim that Spielberg will be personally directing the upcoming "Jurassic Park IV." Producer Frank Marshall mentioned to the press that the screenplay for the anticipated sequel is finally shaping up and that Amblin hopes to have the film ready for theaters in 2008.
While Amblin surmises that somewhere a reporter may have crossed signals between "Indiana Jones 4" (which Spielberg is most definitely directing) and "Jurassic Park IV," it's also possible that Spielberg's reported hands-on involvement in the screenplay and development of the fourth dino fest also got some reporters' signals crossed.
With all the excitement leading up to this Sunday's Oscars, you'd think the entertainment press would have more to do than sit around writing erroneous stories (unintentional or not), but the last week has produced a bumper crop of whoppers when it comes to Steven Spielberg.
