Editorial Reviews

When a spaceship full of hairy people crashes on an unknown planet, it's not enough that the surviving members look a lot like the Starland Vocal Band (it is a help, of course, but not sufficient for their survival). They must forge off on a non-stop mission of wandering around doing nothing in particular, not saying anything particularly noteworthy, and not looking particularly attractive or interesting. However, they do provide a tasty and nutritious snack for some pretty sweet looking stop-motion dinosaurs! Their routine deaths become a challenge to their intrepid captain, who prefers to rule by whining, equivocation and frequent "rest periods." This leaves him vulnerable to a coup by the crew's most hirsute member, Jim, who presses the enormous advantage provided him by what looks like a beard made out of 2-dollar-a-yard fun fur.

Fortunately, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax.com, Kevin Murphy, Bill Corbett and Mike Nelson are here to sharpen some sticks, put on their least smelly animal furs and prepare to poke at the Planet of Dinosaurs.

Now comes this very nice-looking copy of the movie with hilarious commentary from the crew of RiffTrax.

Aside from the shorts, this is probably the best Rifftrax I've seen to date.

How Mystery Science Theater 3000 missed skewering this movie is a mystery to me. The Rifftrax trio of Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett do an outstanding job of tearing this movie apart, much the same way that the stop-motion dinosaurs tear their victims apart. One pointless shot of the sun in the sky elicited this memorable comment. "Hi. This is God. Watch me mess with these chuckleheads!" The only way anyone can sit through this movie of space shipwrecked survivors wandering around aimlessly, periodically stopping for rest periods, and occasionally getting killed, is by enjoying the riffs of the Rifftrax trio.

"Halt, who plods there?" Oh I know, a bunch of hairy people from late 70s public television... all to the wonderful sounds of painfully awful synthesizer music. If you like watching people walk around while not really doing anything, then it's the greatest movie you've ever seen. On the other hand, it's much more fun hearing the gang give it their all they've got. I was very impressed with the job they did this time on the commentary because there is A LOT of downtime in the movie for them to cover and they pull it off wonderfully, even slipping in a callback or two to MST3K episodes. Basically, it's another quality Rifftrax episode that's worth every penny if you like the commentaries they produce.

...this is the one that does it.

I've watched quite a few Rifftrax DVDs and, on the whole, I'm rather entertained by them. They're always funny, Mike and Co. always do a good job, but its just not quite the same as MST3k. I don't know what it is exactly, but they always fall just the littlest, tiniest bit short of being as great as MST3k was.

I figured at some point I'd get the DVD that finally brings it up a notch, and this one is it. "Planet Of Dinosaurs" is incredible, and ranks right up there with my favorite MST3k episodes.

The movie is about a marooned spaceship crew that wanders around, fights, complains, wanders around some more, has several rest periods, and occasionally comes up against some dinosaurs. Its prime MST3k material, and Mike, Kevin and Bill just knock it out of the park. It really does measure up with the best of the Sci-Fi years. Rapid fire, super funny, its the best RiffTrax I've seen to date.

If you're mourning the loss of MST still but haven't checked out RiffTrax yet, start here. Its the finest offering thusfar.

The gang is on fire here riffing and ripping a film that begs to be savaged. Must've watched it 10 times in the month I've owned it and it kills me every time. Definitely their best post-MST3K attack since Wild Women of Wongo.

I've been a huge fan of Rifftrax ever since I stumbled upon them back when they first came out. I'm so glad they are releasing stuff on DVD now. We just finished watching Planet of Dinosaurs last night and both my wife and I loved it. There were several laugh-out-loud moments and the running commentary kept us entertained throughout. Another strong entry in the Rifftrax collection. I highly recommend this one. I hope they keep them coming!

Of all the Rifftrax I've heard this one comes the closest to capturing the MST3K magic of lore.
Mike, Bill and Kevin are in great form and they have a humdinger of a film to go tackle.
The film itself is a slow, badly acted affair that happens to have some really nifty stop motion effects.
You have the option to watch the movie without the commentary, but why would you want to do that?

If you've ever seen the Rock Climbing on Lost Continent, Planet of Dinosaurs will certainly take you back. Aside from a decent job on stop-motion animation, this film is laughable from beginning to end. From the goofy costumes, to the weak captain, to the dated hairstyles, to the poorly constructed dinosaur protection, the Rifftrax crew finds something easy to make fun of every step of the way. Aside from the shorts, this is probably the best Rifftrax I've seen to date.

Another awful movie made watchable by the comedy riffs from the gang at Rifftrax. Essentially, as is alluded to on the back cover of the DVD, I can sum this one up quickly:

A bunch of geeks, obviously out of the 1970s and looking a lot like the Starland Vocal Band, land on a planet populated by dinosaurs that remarkably look just like the T-Rexes and Stegasauruses that used to roam the Earth before "the big meteor" struck and wiped them out. Many of the said geeks get eaten by the said dinosaurs. The remaining survivors live out the remainder of their lives on the planet, since their rocket ship was destroyed when they crash landed at the beginning of the movie.

The End.
