Best Dinosaur Movies


The Top Ten

1 Jurassic Park

I think is probably the best movie in history, Why? Cause it's a solid film, like LITERALLY solid. Original story, perfect development of plot, perfect cast, incredible cgi, perfect horror and suspense, thrilling action, perfect acting, incredible scenery, perfect soundtrack. I can't think of any other movie that succeeds in so many overall aspects as Jurassic Park does.

Jurassic Park, my favourite movie of all time, is an exciting, adventurous, amusing, and DANGEROUS movie. Surely anyone would agree that Jurassic Park is a rollercoster ride filled with total madness

one of the, if not the greatest movie ever made. who didn't fall in love with it

Going with the orignal

2 The Land Before Time

The Land Before Time has 13 Sequels and a T.V. show.

(And A 14 Sequel Coming Out December 2015 and it will be Traditionally Animated so it won't be another Disgraceful Computer Animated Movie.)

I think The Land Before Time deserves the praise and fans that it gets because who would not agree that The Land Before Time is Awesome?

this movie has 12 sequels!

The Land Before time is definitely one of the best dinosaur movies out there, but it can't compete with some others. I like it and all, but my vote has to go with Jurassic World.

I Can't Believe That TheThings Calls This Movie A Bambi Ripoff. (Even Though I Love Them)

3 The Lost World - Jurassic Park

I absolutely loved this movie trilogy. But why the hell is Toy Story here. It's a bit of a disgrace. If anything, Godzilla should be on this list instead of Toy Story

This is one of the best dinosaur movies. It's really fun to watch and it's the best jurassic park movie! I hope they make a new one!

I'm going to keep saying this. I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I think it is incredibly underrated. I loved the film when I was a kid and I still love it to this day.

IThis is my favourite Jurassic Park movie of all time! And why the heck is Disney’s Dinosaur on here? Not only does it have a crappy storyline, the makers couldn’t even bother making a proper title for it. - ForestFeline

4 Dinosaur

I loved this movie as a kid and I still like it today. It's a little bit underrated since many don't watch it. It may be a little bit generic but it's one of the better dinosaur movies out there.

Nice movie, I like it

Next up... The Children Museum Presents, Brown Dinosaurs Walking - WorldPuncher47592834

One of my favorites because it has Carnotaurus, Iguanodon, Pachyrhinosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Styracosaurus, and other dinosaurs and animals you have not heard of.Plus they have Velociraptors in it! Plus the animation is so realistic, it gets entertaining and humorous, the soundtrack is phenomenal, it delivers messages, Aladar is cool, it is fun! I watch it over and over again any day!

5 Jurassic World Jurassic World

Outstanding movie, loved every minute of it

Needs to be number 1! It's a miracle to dinosaur movies.

I was thoroughly impressed. It's not as good as the original, but it was better than the second one, and equal to the third.

I loved the I rex

6 Jurassic Park III

I think it's much better than "The Lost Better" deserves to be up there.

COME ON whats this doing at the 10th place it deserves 1 2 or 3rd

Not a horrible sequel, but one of the weaker entries in this franchise. I am aware that this film does have a little bit of a fan base. a lot of people do like this movie. It has grown on some people. Me personally, I think it's okay but not better than the first two films. It's just rather unremarkable in my opinion, but not terrible.

Spinosaurus is easily my favorite dinosaur. He deserves more love.

7 King Kong (2005)

What's not to like about this film? When I saw it at the cinema, in the final scene the audience were audibly shocked and saddened. Guess they never saw the 1933 original!

To me this is the second best dinosaur movie. Jurassic park being first of course.

2nd best after jurassic park

They aren't T-Rex's, they're V-Rex's (Vastotosaurus Rex). A much more evolved version of its ancestor. - IronSabbathPriest

8 Journey to the Center of the Earth

9 come on it deserves at least number 5

Not exactly dinosaur movie, though...
But yeah, it had a T. Rex in it. - thelegendaries101

9 Godzilla (2014)

It is a lizard dumbass

Yeah he's right

Great reboot for the G-man

Godzilla vs muto was destruction

10 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

It is so awesome

So emotional

so awesome

The Contenders

11 The Land That Time Forgot

Also the ORIGINAL 1933 King Kong, too

12 When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth

Delightful Stop Motion Animation


13 Toy Story

How the heck is toy story a dinosaur movie? Just because it has a toy dinosaur named Rex does not make it a dinosaur movie. The movie includes more dinosaurs and has more information about them. Toy story is about toys silly!

Having a dinosaur in it does not make it a dinosaur movie. Even if it was, I personally wouldn't want it on the list. I know I'm in the minority, but I absolutely hate the whole Toy Story franchise.

Having a dinosaur in it (and a toy dinosaur at that) does not make it a dinosaur movie. Even if it was, I personally wouldn't want it on the list. I know I'm in the minority, but I absolutely hate the whole Toy Story franchise.

It only has just one dinosaur in it who doesn't even play a big role in the movie. And to top it all off, Rex isn't even a real dinosaur so this movie shouldn't be on the list.

14 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
15 Jurassic Park 3D
16 The Good Dinosaur

People who will say this movie is bad, have no feelings on their mind. Or simply have no life. They are just Jurassic Park fans and wants to look for actions but not a good story. If you're an honest guy, I bet at least tears will come up on your eyes when you will watch the whole movie.

I had tears rolling down my face but I played it off like a boss at a staring contest

I love this movie! Best Dinosaur movie ever! (besides Jurassic World)

I love this movie! Thunderclap is my favorite!

18 Land of the Lost
19 We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story

Why people hate this movie? - RafaelDB64

Love this movie. always have

20 Barney's Great Adventure

Seriously? Really, I mean...Barney? Barney isn't a dinosaur movie, it's a movie about a big purple thing that sings to little kids! Barney isn't a dinosaur movie!

Why Is This On Here. - masoncarr2244

Take this off the list.

Barney has NOTHING to do with Dinosaurs at all.

I hope Yuma Tsukumo and Astral kill Barney
