Undoubtedly one of the most influential film personalities in the history of film, Steven Spielberg is perhaps Hollywood’s best known director and one of the wealthiest filmmakers in the world. Spielberg has countless big-grossing, critically acclaimed credits to his name, as producer, director and writer. He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1946. He went to California State University Long Beach, but dropped out to pursue his entertainment career. He gained notoriety as an uncredited assistant editor on the classic western “Wagon Train” (1957).

An expansion of the themes of Jurassic Park. If the first one was about the pointlessness of avoiding procreation (Grant not wanting kids; scientists controlling the mating habits of dinosaurs), then this is about the futility of trying to prevent the autonomy of one's creation. The more overt B-movie veneer makes it especially kickass.
"Lost World" is one of my whipping horses but there are aspects of it that I continue to admire. I love that Spielberg had the gall to go for somewhat darker tone/much darker color palette; Pete Postlethwaite and his "moveable feast"; and the T-Rex smacking a San Diego bus over with its neck...
While it bears little resemblance to the novel on which it is based, and had the unfortunate task of following up on of Spielberg's most magical films, THE LOST WORLD is still a thrilling adventure in its own right. Sure the San Diego finale "jumps the shark" somewhat, but there's a lot to admire here. It's a darker, more intense film, but it stands on its own better than its given credit for.
