Who does not like dinosaurs? Many a child has grown up playing with dinosaur figures or watching shows that feature these ancient reptiles, and it is not hard to see why. The fearsome prehistoric animals have long occupied a soft spot in the hearts and imaginations of many. The existence of dinosaurs allows people to visualise a time in history when the planet was surrounded by humongous and terrifying beasts. That dinosaurs are long extinct and only their bones survive have encouraged many to imagine and romanticise life during the reptiles’ era.
While not factual accounts of the life and times of the dinosaurs during their heyday, dino films are pretty popular. Many of these films fantasise how dinosaurs have lived, and are often a hit with the kids. Some of these dino films even have underlying themes and messages, such as environmentalism and the meaning of existence.
It is never too late to get back into watching movies that showcase dinosaurs. There are tons of DVDs to choose from that prominently feature gigantic ancient lizards fighting each other, or hunting down poor prey. Viewers can also choose to watch such films online through video sharing websites. There are also family-friendly dinosaur movies, and such films are typically animated to appeal to younger audiences.
