I remember back in May of 1997 my mother took me to see The Lost World. I was only 6 and a half years old and I remember coming out of the theater super pumped.
I was alrrady a huge Jurassic Park fan but was not able to see the first one in theaters or get toys from it due to the fact that I was born in 1990, so by 1993 I was still only a toddler and not aware at all of Jurassic Park. I did not see the original Jurassic Park
So by May of 1997 I was old enough to be fully aware that this was a phenomenon and I was thrilled that I was able to get many TLW toys since I had none from JP. And let me trll you, TLW was E V E R Y W H E R E.
Back in 1997 the whole CGI was still new so there was huge interest in seeing what TLW with even better CGI than the already wonderful CGI from JP.
Overall the movie seemed to be well recieved. Wich is why I was very surprised to see how all of the sudden in 2005 Internet critics and youtubers started acting like everyone hated this movie. This narrative continued all the way up to 2015. But now, similar to.how the Star Wars sequel trilogy had so many plot holes that it helped the popularity of the prequels, the fact that the Jurassic World trilogy did quite a few things that many hated actually madd many go back to The Lost World to say..."You know what....This was indeed the best Jurassic Park sequel by far".
Please share with me your experiences of The Lost World.
