Incredible Dinosaur Movies for Kids

Who doesn’t like to watch dinosaur movies?

The mere fact that these giant, terrifying beasts once walked the Earth is enough to spark our imagination and what can be a better way to express it than the cinema?

This is why over the years a number of dinosaur movies have been made. Let us take a look at some of the best dinosaur movies of all times.

1. Jurassic Park

Product : Film
Director : Steven Spielberg

Most of you must be familiar with Jurassic Park, undoubtedly one of the most popular dinosaur movies. This Steven Spielberg blockbuster more or less set the standard for all dinosaur movies to follow in the future.

The story involves human struggle for survival against cloned, live dinosaurs that are somehow able to release themselves from an amusement park.

2. The Land Before Time (1988)

Product : Film
Director : Don Bluth

This animated dinosaur movie not only has as many as twelve sequels but also a number of video games based on it. That should give you a fair idea of its popularity, right?

The story is about an orphaned baby dino named Littlefoot who sets out on an journey to find the ‘Great Valley’ where all dinosaurs must reach in order to survive.

3. Godzilla (1954)

Product : Film
Director : Ishiro Honda

No dinosaur-movie list is complete without a mention of Godzilla, originally ‘Gojira’ in Japanese, a movie that inspired a number of different versions. Nuclear weapon testing gives rise to Godzilla – a monstrous, fictional species of dinosaurs which seems unstoppably destructive. Though the special effects used are not exactly top-notch, the movie does not fail to convey the sense of terror and doom caused by this awe-inspiring beast. The movie has some powerful scenes and also gives a clear message on the consequences of nuclear testing.

4. The Lost World (1925)

Product : Film
Director : Harry O Hoyt
Rating : VERY GOOD

You must have seen movies where dinosaurs or other monstrous creatures create deafening sounds not only by their voice but also with all the crashing and stomping during the destruction that they cause. But can you imagine a dinosaur movie that is silent?

Well, this movie – an adaptation from a book by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – is a silent movie of the 1920s, but don’t underestimate it on that account.

5. Dinosaur (2000)

Product : Film
Director : Eric Leighton Ralph Zondag
Rating : VERY GOOD

Dinosaur is a more recent, animated Disney movie which has a dinosaur named Aladar for the main character. This orphaned dino is raised by lemurs and the movie follows the story of his life.

This touching story intermingled with themes of courage and survival is truly a Disney classic.
