FantasticFest is the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and action movies from all around the world. Here's a list of some of our favorite movies at FantasticFest.
A decidedly odd couple with ulterior motives convince Dr. Alan Grant to go to Isla Sorna (the second InGen dinosaur lab.), resulting in an unexpected landing...and unexpected new inhabitants on the island.
Famed archaeologist/adventurer Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones is called back into action when he becomes entangled in a Soviet plot to uncover the secret behind mysterious artifacts known as the Crystal Skulls.
After arriving in India, Indiana Jones is asked by a desperate village to find a mystical stone. He agrees, and stumbles upon a secret cult plotting a terrible plan in the catacombs of an ancient palace.

Four years after the failure of Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar, John Hammond reveals to Ian Malcolm that there was another island ("Site B") on which dinosaurs were bred before being transported to Isla Nublar. Left alone since the disaster, the dinosaurs have flourished, and Hammond is anxious that the world see them in their "natural" environment before they are exploited. Written by

When the bus crashes into the front of the video rental store, a poster can be seen for Hook (1991), which Steven Spielberg also directed. See more »
In Hammond's room, Hammond walks over to his desk and the computer is facing the chair. After he walks back around the desk (after handing Ian the folders), the monitor is facing a different direction. See more »
Not as original as the first, but good in it's own right.
While it does not come close to the originality of the first movie, it does manage to keep up the pace that the first film set forth. Jeff Goldblum does a welcome return as Ian Malcolm, and manages to hold his own with The extravagant special effects that even manages to surpass the first film in some degree. Julianne Moore, and Pete Postlethwaite hold their own as well, and the action has double this time around, letting the movie have some of the most spectacular, and scary scenes ever to put to modern film. If you want a very good time, then you really can't go wrong with it. Maybe except if you want to follow it with Jurassic Park 3, then you are in trouble.
