Might this be the first poll where one choice gets 100% of the vote?
No, I never feel comfortable with the blurry criteria used to determine if something is the "best", so I tend to answer with my very subjective, personal "favorite" instead. I prefer The Lost World over the original because it's got three times as as much Goldblum. More Goldblum makes everything better.
On that note, there are no bad JP movies and I'm surprised to this day there aren't dinosaur blockbuster movies every year.
@majinblackheart: Similar to Jaws and shark movies, I don't think there's a demand for annual dinosaur movies. After JP, there were a handful of knock-offs, none of which did well. After Jaws, Hollywood tried to repeat its success with more killer fish/whale movies and they all did poorly, too. You need to give people time to want another trip back to the beach, park or wherever.
@majinblackheart: yeah the girl defeating the raptors with gymnastics was pretty silly. but watch the high grass raptor attack scene. the hanging RV scene off the mountain, more goldblum, and we get a dinosaur in the city. also I was a kid when it came out and burger king had those dope ass watches that were water proof that they gave out for the movie. so I have a soft spot for 2.
