Jurassic Park, the 1993 Steven Spielberg classic, was at the time renowned for its visual and computer generated effects. While it wasn’t the first, Jurassic Park showed just how much can be done with CG when it’s done right. After all, it was the first popular movie to create a realistic dinosaur fight, something pretty much guaranteed to please audiences through sheer entertainment value alone. But recently, CG has become a hot topic, some claiming it’s “gotten worse” over the years (which certainly isn’t true, but is worth talking about anyways).

The video above, made by kaptainkristian, talks about how CG can both be used well and misused, and how Jurassic Park (the original, not Jurassic World) is a great example of it being used to its full potential. Through a combination of CG and practical effects, the creators behind Jurassic Park managed to make a movie that stood the test of time as a landmark in the use of computer-generated graphics in mainstream movies.
