Review in a Nutshell: A groovy, boozy Seventies movie with a fashionably hard-boiled geologist protagonist and a pair of completely inert giant “dinosaurs”, Legend of Dinosaurs and Monster Birds was allegedly the most expensive science fiction film yet produced by Toei Studios when it premiered in 1977. It’s a baffling little creature feature with lots of symbolic camera-work and questionable wardrobe choices.

Review in a Nutshell: A zany mash-up of post-apocalyptic and prehistoric films, Yor: The Hunter from the Future is buoyed up by the charming performance of Reb Brown as a futuristic caveman with perfect hair and a winning smile. Also included are lethal robots, savage tribes, and giant rubber dinosaurs.

FINAL THOUGHT:

The infamous hang-gliding scene.

Review in a Nutshell: Carnosaur is a gruesome, low-budget, Roger Corman-produced Jurassic Park knock-off. Katherin does not appreciate its many rich, deep layers of nuance and social commentary.

Review in a Nutshell: Essentially a re-telling of King Kong without the troubling racial subtext, The Valley of Gwangi pits real cowboys against stop-motion animation dinosaurs. The visual effects by Ray Harryhausen are outstanding.

Review in a Nutshell:   Slow, ponderous, and not particularly bright … and that’s not describing the dinosaurs!  I loved this movie as a kid; I had terrible taste.

Terror-dactyl!

No, it’s not an obscure but terrifying poetic form, it’s Q, the Winged Serpent, the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  This movies is BAD.  Really, really bad.  No, I’m serious.  It’s bad.  Even the presence of David Carradine and Richard Roundtree cannot salvage this film. 

On the plus side, Claymation dragon-dinosaur.

Give that Gorilla an Oscar!

Watch out for Calcifier Death Rays, because Robot Monster is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: A cautionary tale about the dangers of amateur archaeology, ferocious dinosaurs, and robots that wish to be like the Hoo-man.  Truly, Robot Monster is the King Lear of robot films.

This movie contains:

DINOSAURS!

ROBOTS!

TRUE ROMANCE?

CLOSING THOUGHT!

Robot + Dinosaur = NIGHTMARE!

Don’t try to salvage giant alien robots, because Terror of Mechagodzilla is

The Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: The final entry in the ‘Showa’ Godzilla series, Terror of Mechagodzilla boasts the return of Ishiro Honda and a darker, more somber tone than many previous films.  The seriousness is a bit of a mismatch with the silver jumpsuits and the fan-blade butt dinosaurs.

This movie contains:

Mad Scientists.

Cyborg Technology!

Astromen from Outer Space.

ROBOT DINOSAURS.
