You might be able to get your desired results with a few tweaks in your TV or Blu-rayer settings... Desaturate a tad, tweak the gamma...

Just checked out the 3D blu, and I was really impressed--overall--with how they managed to take a twenty-plus year old film and give it a very current clarity and dimensionality. Plenty immersive. On the grain issue, I doubt they could have achieved the windowing effect of it seeming like one could reach through the screen and into the space of the movie with too much of it. Jurassic 3D almost has the clean image of digital--an asset in 3D--while still offering the texture of film. Viewed in 3D on a passive system--where there's some resolution loss, anyway--I didn't feel any lack of detail from all the DNR. Weird to experience the film this way; more enveloping, vivid in spite of all the time that's passed. I'd be up for seeing what an outfit like Stereo D could do with other older films...but with 3D on a bit of a wane, I doubt there's interest in doing any more expensive, quality conversions of the back catalog. The paint work on this puts "Piranha 3D" to shame; I didn't see any anomalies around borders or edges; it's seamless.

Those who think the film's a bit dark in 3D might try setting their TV's gamma, if they can, at 1.9 instead of 2.2; I experimented a bit, and with my setup and calibration it offered a slightly juiced image that wasn't blown out. I was able to drop the brightness down...and still had a punchier picture overall, especially in the softer, low light scenes that tended toward the faint. No clue on what this would do in 2D, but I'll check it out.

I just prefer the overall look of the 2D version if watching this movie in 2D. The DNR is quite bad on the 3D watching it in 2D, but in 3D doesn't really interfere as much.

I love the design of the packaging for the UK set. I've got the regular set from 2011. I think think that the transfers for all three films are great as well.

I love the 3D version of JP. It's a fantastic conversion, full of strong depth and excellent layering. The remastered image quality itself is a mixed bag as folks have said; it looks shite in 2D, with the higher gamma making it look impenetrably dark at times, the skin tones have a perma-tanned orangey quality and the DNR sucks the life out of the image. BUUUUUTTTT....put it into 3D and those drawbacks become virtues; there seems to be more depth in the shadows and more nuance in the colour, and what was smoothed-over softness now looks sharper and livelier.

Probably why they locked the disc and elected not to include a "view in 2D" option; none of the changes were intended to be viewed/evaluated in 2D. I understand the grumbles about being denied a definitive 2D transfer with this release, but I suppose they were all about showcasing the 3D this time...and holding off for another release somewhere down the road...

I ended up selling my box set up at F.y.e Saturday. The only movie I really liked was the first movie the other two I didn't really care for at all. So I plan to just pick this Jurassic Park and the Jurassic World when it comes out on Blu-ray since it is more a less a "sequel" to the first movie.

Damn how many times are they going to re-release the same discs? I have the three discs in single case with slipcover set, didn't know they had done yet another with individual artwork.

I know this is unlikely to ever happen but if they re-released the first Jurassic Park on Blu-Ray with the new color timing before Jurassic World releases (minus the noise reduction), I'd buy this re-release in a heartbeat. Again, highly doubt it but would love to be proven wrong.
