Anyone who has ever been a kid has had a love affair with dinosaurs. The friendly Brontosaurus, the deadly Velociraptor, the monstrous Tyrannosaurus rex, and more are the characters of long ago that used to rule the Earth before their tiny brains and bad luck did them in. But humanity as tried to pay tribute to the dinosaurs by featuring them in movies, which they would probably not appreciate if they were here to see them. But they are pretty cool.
"The Lost World"
And since one prehistoric movie of a type is never enough, why not go full ape and watch "King Kong" while you're at it? Skull Island is home to all kinds of prehistoric creatures, including the Stegosaurus, the Brontosaurus, a T. Rex, and in a deleted scene, giant spiders. You don't remember learning about giant spiders in school, eh? Well it's a good thing we have "King Kong" on DVD.
Of course, we're only referring to the "Rite of Spring" chapter of "Fantasia," but if you're a dinosaur fan it's very difficult to do better. The section starts out by depicting the origins of Earth, but quickly progresses to our friends the dinosaurs, as they tromp about the Earth doing dinosaur things and getting into fights with each other. Then: Extinction. And it's one of the coolest bits of animation ever to come out of Disney (or anyplace else).
