We’re Back! A Dinosaur Story

Sometimes things that are clouded with the nostalgia of childhood are best left in that hazy rearview mirror. Case in point, my recent reacquaintance with We’re Back! A Dinosaur Story, a film I used to watch relentlessly as a sickly youth. Upon rewatch, thing I had never noticed before (inconsistent animation, tonal dissonance, made-by-committee feel) were glaringly obvious this time around.  ... read more
View all We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story reviews
Captain New Eyes travels back in time and feeds dinosaurs his Brain Grain cereal, which makes them intelligent and nonviolent. They agree to go to the Middle Future (this era) in order to grant the wishes of children in New York city. They are to meet Dr. Bleeb of the Museum of Natural History, but get side-tracked with their new friends and run into the Captain's evil brother, Professor Screw Eyes, who has other plans for the dinosaurs.

We’re Back! A Dinosaur Story

“Sometimes things that are clouded with the nostalgia of childhood are best left in that hazy rearview mirror. Case in point, my recent reacquaintance with We’re Back! A Dinosaur Story, a film I used to watch relentlessly as a sickly youth. Upon rewatch, thing I had never noticed before (inconsistent animation, tonal dissonance, made-by-committee feel) were glaringly obvious this time around.   I remembered something zippy, energetic that blasted along its 71-minute running time with aplomb. Imagine my surprise to realize how incongruent Professor Screweyes’ sequence is with the rest of the movie, and how unnecessary it is. No wonder John Malkovich maintains a grand displeasure in even speaking about this film. To give wider context to his gripes: “Good ideas go to die in Hollywood” read more

"First viewing - April 8th Wait a second, this isn't an Asian movie...oh, right, this was the kiddo's pick for something we could watch together. I vaguely recall seeing the posters back when it came out, but definitely never bothered to watch it before. And if I'm honest I can't say I've missed much either. The plot is oversimplified & thus predictable, and the emotional beats don't hit because there's no time taken to fully explore any of the characters. There's also a frame device that comple"
