The T. Rex chasing the Jeep was the most difficult scene to animate. Steve "Spaz" Williams had to do research because there's no frame of reference for a running animal of that size. It took two months to figure out how to get it to run, for instance. He would run the sequence backwards to see all of the mistakes. They were also able to use the computer to add little details to authenticate the scene, for example, the T. Rex running through puddles of water and leaving splashes, et cetera. The splashing was filmed individually, and then the computer added it to the T. Rex's footsteps. See more »

What can be said about this movie that hasn't already been said? Who knows. We all know that this has some of the greatest special effects, even today. Also, if there's anything that can match the awesome T-Rex, it's the movie's musical score. I swear, listen to it more than once, and you're bound to see the movie yet again, if for that sole reason. It's that powerful. Oh sure, acting isn't this movie's strong suit, but who looks for acting in a Dinosaur thriller? Who?!
Anyway, I think I've made my point. Jurassic Park: One of America's greatest classics. Steven Spielberg created magic with this movie. If you haven't seen it once, you haven't seen it at all.
