But for those who don’t know, Michael Crichton, who died in 2008, was huge back in the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s, and to a certain extent, the ‘00s. He got an M.D. from Harvard, but never practiced medicine. Instead, he used that big brain of his to make some of the most popular stories to ever be written, with quite a few of them becoming motion pictures. He was also a respectable director as he directed Coma, Looker, and the film version of Westworld.
So, being such a huge fan, I thought it necessary to rank his best movies, but only based off of the books where he used his real name. So don’t expect The Carey Treatment since that story was written under his pseudonym, Jeffrey Hudson.
