This week, The Nerds discuss films that claim to be “Based on True Events” and how true they really are. Then, we get to listener feedback including reading aloud our fans’ prizes from participating in social media contests.
With the recent announcement of the fourth upcoming entry, Jurassic World which comes out in 2015, it seems to be most timely to cover this excellent trilogy’s box set.This set came out in 2011 in two editions: a blu ray box set and a limited edition with a T-Rex mini statue. I had to settle for the first. Like most movie nerds my age, I feel that Jurassic Park is a staple of american cinema and one of my favorites growing up and still is to this day. When this trilogy was released, I got so excited that I made sure to get the day off from work and I spent the day watching all three back to back to back. So now we ask, does the blu ray remastering make that much of a difference compared to with its DVD counterpart?
It’s that time again, fellow Nerds!
