What's up, guys? Tigerfan45 here, and, I'm back again. Now, I love dinosaurs. And, I like movies. So, today, I'm gonna take a look at some movies about dinosaurs that I enjoy watching.
This is one of my favorite movies of all time. To start with, it has some great acting, particularly Richard Attenborough as John Hammond, Laura Dern as Dr. Sattler, and Sam Niel as Dr. Grant. Dr. Grant is my favorite character, and, I like his character arc. At first, he doesn't like kids, because of that rude little punk at the beginning, but, after spending time with Tim and Lex, he warms up to them. The movie also does a good job with balancing the action with the character development. The action scenes with the dinosaurs don't take up too much of the movie, and, it's more focuses on the characters' relationships with each other. Speaking of which, the film does a phenomenal job with its use of animatronics and CGI to make the dinosaurs come to life. The filmmakers went that extra mile to make those dinosaurs look as real as possible. So, overall, I really love Jurassic Park. I will be sure to watch it plenty more times in the future.
Dinosaur I find to be a very underrated movie. I kinda enjoy this one. Some people say that this is just a lame attempt by Disney to cash in on The Land Before Time, and, while yeah, both films have somewhat similar storylines, I like how this movie uses a few lesser known dinosaurs. It does use some well-known ones, like Brachiosaurus and Velociraptor, but, it also uses a few lesser known ones, like Carnotaurus or Pachyrhinosaurus. The voice acting is pretty cool, with my favorite performance being D.B Sweeney as Aladar. Even the lemurs are kinda cool, even though Zini could have been toned down a little. The movie is also visually amazing. I like how the backgrounds are real, it's like you're actually in the age of the dinosaurs. The dinosaurs, themselves look really cool. Just like in Jurassic Park, the filmmakers went that extra mile to make the dinosaurs look as real as possible. So, overall, I think Dinosaur is definitely worth checking out.
#3:We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story
We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story I consider to be one of my childhood movies. I remember watching this one over and over again whenever I went to my uncle's house. And, even now, I still like it. First thing, there's the characters. All of them have enough quirks to keep the audience's attention. Rex was a very likable character, and I remember that Stubbs the Clown was enjoyably funny, especially when he quits from Professor Screweyes's employ(seriously, who hasn't wanted to do that to their boss when they quit a job they didn't like?). Speaking of which, Professor Screweyes was a very intimidating villain, and his voice actor, Kenneth Mars does a very good job. Other performances I really loved in this movie were John Goodman as Rex, and Martin Short as Stubs. I also really loved that "Roll back the rock to the dawn of time" song. It's catchy, and, I always find myself humming it whenever I'm done watching the movie. I would have liked to have seen more dinosaurs, but, honestly, that's just a nitpick. So, overall, I really like We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story. I'll be sure to watch it many more times.

#4:The Land Before Time
Ok, second to Jurassic Park, this has to be the most popular movie on this list. And, I can definitely see why. To start with, once again, the filmmakers worked very hard to make sure that the dinosaurs in this movie looked just like the magnificent creatures they were millions of years ago. I also found it interesting how the dinosaurs called each others' species by their features, like calling Apatosaurus the "Long Neck", calling Triceratops the "three horn", calling the T. Rex "Sharptooth", and so forth. Littlefoot, himself was a very likable character, and his determination and leadership skills make him a great character. I also loved the instrumental score for this movie. I'd say it's some of the best that was ever written. However, there are a few things I didn't get about this movie. First of all, near the end, Littlefoot sees the ghost of his mother, and she leads him to the Great Valley, but, that's right after he defeats the sharptooth, but it feels like it was supposed to be put before. It just felt really confusing. Also, there's a scene where Cera is attacked by some Pachycephalosaurus. It just feels confusing that it's that kind of dinosaur that's attacking her, since Pachycephalosaurus is a plant eater. Wouldn't it have made better sense if it was something like Velociraptor attacking her? But, honestly, that's just a nitpick. Overall, The Land Before Time is a great movie for kids and adults of any age. See it if you haven't already.

And, those are some Mesozoic movies that I really enjoy. If you have any suggestions, I might watch them, and, see if they're worthy of this list. Or, if you feel that I've left any out, just let me know. See you soon!
