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

Pretty obvious, isn't it? Still a great franchise, continuing with Jurassic World and JW The Fallen Kingdom.

2 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

Everything about it is true except the dinosaurs are the Triassic and Cretaceous dinosaurs and they don't live together but still really cool!

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!

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.

I have no FLIPPING idea why this movie is considered bad. I think it is the best of the trilogy, with the heroic character Eddie Carr and the awesome scene with the Velociraptors and the long grass. Plus, it also adds to the list of amazing Ian Malcolm quotes!

"Where you are going is the only place in the world where the geese chase YOU! "

"Mommy's very angry."

"Increase your rate of climb! "

4 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.

This movie is so awesome but I don't think that they should have killed Sharptooth (Red Claw STINKS.)

The sequels would have been so much awesome...

5 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.

First time a hybrid I think has been in a dinosaur movie
But don’t Jurassic world will be better then Jurassic world fallen kingdom
It might but get ready on the 22 June 2021 because Jurassic world 3 is coming out

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 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

8 The Land That Time Forgot

Also the ORIGINAL 1933 King Kong, too

9 When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth

Delightful Stop Motion Animation


10 Godzilla (2014)

It is a lizard dumbass

Yeah he's right

Great reboot for the G-man

Godzilla vs muto was destruction

The Newcomers

? Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

It is so awesome

The Contenders

11 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!

2nd best after jurassic park

I like the bit where king k rips the t r's mouth open

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

12 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
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 Jurassic Park 3D
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 love this movie! Thunderclap is my favorite!

16 We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story

Why people hate this movie? - RafaelDB64

17 Walking With Dinosaurs

Amazing movie should be better on the list

What the what! Should be at least 10th

WAYy too low

18 Land of the Lost
19 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.

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

Best movie of all time all you that don't like it are heaters yes it's q barney movie but it's better then Jurassic park and is way scarier, more suspenseful, has better CGI, and is the best action/horror movie ever! Don't underestimate it. Barney is lord.

BarneyTheDinosaurRocks Probably Added This Here

24 Balawis
