When Trevor opens the box of stuff belonging to his lost brother, he pulls out an odd wooden item, declares that he doesn't know what it is, and sets it aside. The item is a Holmes Stereoscope, a device designed in 1861 by the American physician and writer, Oliver Wendell Holmes, for the viewing of so-called "stereocards". A stereocard is like a postcard which has a Left-view and Right-view photograph mounted alongside one another. When viewed through this stereoscope, the photographs are merged into one 3-D image (which was later adopted for the ViewMaster viewers and cards). The Holmes Stereoscope was a great source of entertainment in the Victorian era. It was, in a sense, the Home Entertainment Centre of its day, as it transported its users to exotic places all over the world. People bought packs of stereocards for their entertainment - in much the same way as we buy DVDs today! (Thus, a character in a 3-D movie having no idea what a stereoscope is, makes for a cute little 3-D in-joke...) See more »
In the 3-D Version, when Trevor is about to meet the T-Rex, he is walking through the red clay sandy area away from the screen. As he walks... he disappears, and the scenery remains up for a good two seconds. See more »

Hey, look at all the schist.
It's a metamorphic rock. Green schist, white schist, mica-garnet schist...

At the end of the movie, the bird flies out of the picture and creates a bright flash. Following it, are the end credits where the bird's feathers drift slowly down. See more »
This movie was another movie in the long line of only good because their in 3D movies. The story and acting was awful, and it felt like I was watching a cheap imitation of Indiana Jones. Brendan Friser's charm can't win this one (hopefully the Mummy 3 is better). The script is just awful and the movie was boring 10 minutes in. The movie was only about 90 minutes and it felt like it dragged on for hours and hours. The plot and some of the things that happen are just stupid and almost like a farce even for a Verne novel. My best bet, don't spend the extra fee theaters are charging for this 3D waste. The 3D effects are awesome, but wasted in this golden turkey.
