How We Determine Our Grades

For older audiences, there’s the king of dino animated/live action movies, Jurassic Park (check our reviews of the first, second, and third movie). If you’re looking for dinosaur adventures for the youngest viewers, try the traditionally animated Land Before Time series (we’ve reviewed numbers 2, 3, 4, and 8). Or for complete computer animation, look for Disney’s Dinosaur.
