I came across an old Films&Stuff video that seemingly answered the question that has been on all of our minds at one point or another: why does Jurassic Park look so much better than its sequels?
Films&Stuff argues that it all has to do with scale framing. The video analyses key dinosaur scenes from Jurassic Park and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. It breaks down everything from aspect ratios to the difference between medium and wide shots. It’s a really insightful editorial that shows how a cluttered scene can take away from the awe and wonder of the visual effects.
It’s definitely worth a watch if you’re a fan of the original Jurassic Park.
Do you agree with Films&Stuff that scale framing is partly responsible for Jurassic Park‘s success?
What are some redeeming factors in the Jurassic sequels? Let us know in the comments!
