JURASSIC PARK (1993) 4 stars

It remains the definitive roller-coaster ride with truly groundbreaking FX. It may not hold the same sophistication and maturity as Jaws and it's slightly more geared towards kids, but it more than makes up for it with memorable moments (there are countless iconic images throughout) and the end result is extremely tense with some terrifying set pieces. The T-Rex scene remains classic Hollywood filmmaking and the Raptors in the kitchen is unforgettable. Twenty years on, it still holds up perfectly.
