Dinosaur Movies

Kevin Stanton "stanke36"
The list author says: "Dinosaur movies have fired the imagination of many a young child for eons. They always center around the good vs evil theme with the creatures being evil, of course. And the plot usually centers around figuring out how to discard the crazy critters.
Over the years, special effects have taken these movies to new levels of recognition, justifiably so.
Below is a list of what I feel are really good dinosaur movies, even 'B' rated ones. I am focusing strictly on the movies that include dinosaurs, not creatures of any other sort. This list is not as large as I thought it would be, but still some great movies here."
