Best Dinosaur Movies


The Top Ten

1 Jurassic Park

It's the best movie ever

People, it had very, very, very less CGI for a dinosaur movie, and still is a classic masterpiece. - TriggerTrashKid

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

2 The Land Before Time

Where it all began #Land before time

So underrated best animation movie ever made my childhood

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

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?

3 Dinosaur

This was the right kind of movie to be released for the 21st century. Not necessarily the best, but the right one. It showed how far humanity has come from when dinosaurs existed and the struggles we endured to get this far. Sort of like how these dinosaurs even at the end of everything struggled to find some world they wouldn’t die right away from.

The iguanodons look cool, especially Kron and Bruton! I learned about many dinosaur species from this film.

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

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.

4 Jurassic World Jurassic World

I loved the I rex

In my opinion the Indominus Rex was a scary and magnificent creature

Love this movie

It is the best movie ever

5 The Lost World - Jurassic Park

Lost World was nice and better than it's successor. - TriggerTrashKid

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.

6 Jurassic Park III

It's okay. - TriggerTrashKid

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.

7 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Why do people hate this terrific movie? They say, the plot was weak, how come? This movie was as awesome as the predecessor, why hate it? - TriggerTrashKid

You know that brachiosaurus was actually the first brachiosaurus that alan grant saw

so awesome

So emotional

8 King Kong (2005)

Kongy for the win! - TriggerTrashKid

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

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!

2nd best after jurassic park

9 Journey to the Center of the Earth

It's fun. - TriggerTrashKid

9 come on it deserves at least number 5

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

10 Godzilla (2014)

Somewhat good. - TriggerTrashKid

It is a lizard dumbass

Yeah he's right

Great reboot for the G-man

The Contenders

11 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
12 The Land That Time Forgot

Also the ORIGINAL 1933 King Kong, too

13 When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth

Delightful Stop Motion Animation


14 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.

15 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 can't wait for this movie to come out!

16 Jurassic Park 3D

I have never seen that, but that would be cool. - BloodFang

17 Barney's Great Adventure

Take this off the list.

Barney has NOTHING to do with Dinosaurs at all.

I hope Yuma Tsukumo and Astral kill Barney


Barney is a threatening monster, killing both the tyrannosaurus from Jurassic Park and the Mosasaur from Jurassic World. Then he rips Godzilla’s throat out. Then he collects all the little children and gives them to his friends to feast. That is the plot of the greatest dinosaur movie of all time. - Bertie11

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!

18 Walking With Dinosaurs

WHAT IN THE CRETACEOUS! this movie has really good dinosaur animations and unpopular dinosaurs! you could learn some dinosaurs from this movie must be like on 2nd place of course jurassic park is best

This was good but not as good as the documentary

This movie was unbelievably cringey and stupid. Do not watch. - ForestFeline

Amazing movie should be better on the list

19 We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story

Why people hate this movie? - RafaelDB64

Love this movie. always have

20 Land of the Lost
21 The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island
22 The Valley of Gwangi

Excellent movie impressive effects for the time acting was good

I hope they'll be a remake of this film. I love this film even when gwangi battle the styacosaurus and the elephant.

23 One Million Years B.C.

Iconic dinosaur movie

24 Godzilla (1954)
25 The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms
26 Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend

Really people? You forgot to vote this higher? Really? I mean sure it's no masterpiece but it's still a highly underrated gem and one of the best Dino films out there.

27 Dinosaur Revolution

I like this one.

28 Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia
29 Gertie the Dinosaur
30 Dinosaur Adventure Dinosaur Adventure

It looks like a ripoff of the land before time.

Yeee. The second best Dino movie with the best being Barneys great adventure - Bertie11

31 Balawis
32 The Flintstones
33 Planet Dinosaur

This movie is awesome.I absouloutley love it.It deserves to be number 1.

There's allosaurus mapusaurus microraptor sinornithosaurus velociraptor protoceratops and lots is a cool movie.

34 The Dino King

Cool movie. As someone already said, perfect mix of emotions. Tarbosaurus vs T. rex!

The perfect mix of sad and fun, yet it wasn't even on the list until I put it on.

35 You Are Umasou

You can go see AniMat’s review of it to see how amazing it is that it was at least just one step away from getting his Seal of Approval! Me tell you why later.

36 Tarbosaurus: The Mightiest Ever

This movie is great a prequel of dino king it has emotional scenes that make you cry and fascanating facts about dinosaurs you can learn dinosaur names very popular since on youtube and DVD only
