Great fun dinosaur movie which influenced Jurassic Park - The Valley of Gwangi review by PV

Spoiler Alert
16/10/2017

I remember first watching this on Christmas Day 1976 - and loving it then. So I thought I'd watch it again, if only to see the brilliant effects by Ray Harryhausen.

This dates from 1969 but seems older - 1950s-style. Hard to imagine it was only just over 20 years later that Jurassic Park set the standard for dino movies. This clearly influenced Spielberg - the T-Rex scenes in the church is basically where he got the end of Jurassic Park from (that ending is not in the book and nor is the T-rex car chase). But hey, you can't copyright an idea...

But any dinosaur movie is fine with me, and it's all great fun. I think smaller kids would love it and the old-style stop-motion animation - though their attention may drift now and then (because they're so used to CGI and constant stimulation).
