Happy birthday J.J. Abrams! The director turns 50 years old today, and we imagine he's celebrating with plenty of action, sci-fi and of course plenty of lens flares.

Sure, J.J.'s laid off the lens flares in recent directorial efforts — thank God they didn't fill up Star Wars: The Force Awakens) — but we couldn't help imagining how his trademark visual tick would translate to our favorite movies. Check out the video below to see how the standard J.J. Abrams lens flares would appear in beloved flicks like Jurassic Park, Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope and more.


Which movie do you wish J.J. Abrams directed?
