The Lost World - "In 1912, an expedition journeys to an African plateau where dinosaurs still live. Rhys - Davies as Professor Challenger and Warner as his rival are good, but others in the too-large cast are amateurish, and the dinosaurs are not only badly done, but extremely scarce. A cheap, insignificant version of Conan Doyle's wonderful novel, which still deserves a lavish remake. Sequel, RETURN TO THE LOST WORLD (1994)"
Dinosaur Island - Starring: Ross Hagen - Description N/A.
Jurassic Park and Lost
World - Producer/Screenwriter Steven Speilberg
resurrects dinosaurs from the dead and presents the human race with an
"impossible" threat....living dinosaurs! Somewhere on a remote and secret

another dinosaur bent on killing (and eating) the two saurian creatures that were
terrorizing the human heroes.
We're Back A Dinosaur's Story - A Steven Speilberg produced video animation production about bipedal, speaking dinosaurs that befriend two children and teach them how to be respectable and honest. Scenes include: A gecko-like E.T. taking a primitive T-Rex into his spaceship, endowing it with intelligence, traveling forward in time and depositing the intelligent REX on present day Earth. Amongst the many delightfull scenes is one in which children, watching a parade containing REX and his talking dinosaur friends (appearing as balloon-floats,) repeatedly wish out loud that the sauroid characters were real. The most significant message can be seen in the film's closing scene. A grandmother, looks out the night time window up into the stars and tells the children "Have your dreams of this beautiful world and tomorrow youll begin to fulfill the wishes of many children. We will make believe you're statues. Adults will wait outside as you reveal the miracle of yourselves to the youth. It will be very good. It will be very good indeed."

science-fiction meets western movie, the son of a murdered sheriff comes
back to the desert town of Oblivion in 3033 AD to take revenge on the reptilian alien who killed his father. Sequel: 'Backlash: Oblivion 2.'
- Starring Kurt Russell and James Spader. This movie linked ancient Egyptian mysteries, pyramids, slavery, time-space travel and the
return of, and conflict with, a reptilian God/alien to a planet where it once ruled. (The
true image of the alien can be seen as his skin is peeled away in the last scene.)
Carnosaur 2 - As many people say when they see this movie, it's a rip off of the James Cameron "Aliens" plot, but is definately worth a look. Things go wrong in a government facility. A rescue team goes in to save the one lone survivor. Dinosaurs look great, but he acting is truly stiff.
Mutant League - Description N/A.
Theodore Rex - Starring Whoopie Goldberg and a seven foot tall, upright walking, talking Dino-Sauroid. Whoopie and the sauroid work side by side against crime and injustice. At the end of the film there is a scene in which an audience is told "Soft-skin, scale, tell us that they are only words that keep us apart. Our survival rests in all species treating each other with compassion, kindness and respect." Following this, the Sauroid character tells his Whoopie Goldberg "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship" and the words "SEE YA" are seen fading slowly to black.
Carnosaur 3: Primal Species - Reviewers
hate the film and blast the actors, make-up, set designs, plot, direction. It
might be worth getting just to say we've see how bad things can get!

Stargate: SG 1 - This 'ShowTime' series, continues this reptilian theme by
presenting the malevolent aliens wearing armor shells of cobras with striking pose and
being "serpent-like" in their cold blooded aggression towards the human Stargate
travelers. The masters of these human "hosts" are the serpents living within
them. Serpentine images abound within the series scenery.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park - In this Jurassic Park sequel, Spielberg echoes the Dinotopian "World Beneath" theme in which a lost ecological niche is discovered in which dinosaurs live. In their "terrible Lizard" ways, a captive T-Rex breaks from his captors and terrorizes a metropolis. In the end of the film, the saurian young are used as bait to lure the dinosaurs back to the ship and to their eventual destruction. (NOTE: Just as the lost "V" series depict, both film portray the humans as being threatened by one form of reptilian life and saved by another.) Jurassic Park
