Movies Update: ‘Irresistible,’ Revisiting ‘Jurassic Park’ and More

Plus, 10 streaming movies to take a chance on.

What is summer without summer blockbusters? Movie-craving Americans are about to find out. Yes, some theaters are making cautious plans to reopen next month — we’ll see how that goes — but for the first time in forever, we’re facing a Fourth of July weekend without a big popcorn spectacle to provide thrills, laughs, groans, action and air-conditioning. In place of such delights, we decided for our next Weekend Watch to revisit a commercial juggernaut from the past with the hungry dinosaurs and terrified humans of “Jurassic Park.”

How does it all look now? Are the dinosaurs as fearsome on the home screen? Do the vintage special effects or the pretend science hold up? Please take a look and tell us what you think. “Jurassic Park” is available to stream, rent or buy. Here’s a guide. Comments will be open on this linked article until 6 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday — so come on by, the park is always open.
