Ranking the ‘Jurassic Park’ Movies

I love the Jurassic Park movies. I’ve seen all of them and even despite sometimes being annoyed by these movies I will be one of the first in line to see the next one, Jurassic World: Dominion, coming out potentially next year.

Today, I’m sharing my ranking of the five dinosaur-packed delights. Enjoy!

5. Jurassic Park III

Jurassic Park III is pretty bad. I watched it and I honestly forgot what the film was about. It was just one of those movies that feel like plain dumb fun to watch with people getting chomped by dinosaurs and characters screaming and running for dear life. It’s hilarious.

4. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

This movie was working too hard to be profound and that just isn’t going to work with this franchise. We want to see the good guys running from scary dinosaurs, not a story about scientific discoveries, corny betrayals, and dinosaur mutations that seem scary in theory but for some reason are just always seconds away from killing the main characters only to be barred by some sudden obstacle.

The best part of the movie is the end when the realization that dinosaurs are now inhabiting the mainland rather than a tropical island far away from any sense of civilization is fully realized but it takes a whole lot of annoying storytelling to get to that point.

3. The Lost World: Jurassic Park

I have to admit, I like this film. No, it isn’t perfect, but it is fun. Jeff Goldblum’s character Ian Malcolm is interesting enough not to be annoying and his fellow co-star, Julianne Moore’s Sarah Harding, isn’t annoying either. In fact, watching this movie a couple of weeks is what inspired me to write this post ranking all of the Jurassic movies.

2. Jurassic World

When I walked out of that theater in 2015 after watching the Jurassic Park reboot, Jurassic World, I was thoroughly pleased. Yeah, it had its faults, but overall it was a monster movie worth waiting for. The dinosaur action was awesome, the music was chill-inducing, and by the film’s conclusion, I had a big smile on my face.

Now, at home, I enjoy watching it even more. It’s a great matinee film and sometimes that’s all a person needs. A good action movie to pass the time.

1. Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park is perfection. Complete and utter perfection. With special effects that still look good to this day and a basic storyline that never gets old to watch, Jurassic Park is the epitome of quality moviemaking.
