Time for one more journey to the tutorial movies of the previous, and this one is a doozy! 1970’s Dinosaurs: The Age of the Horrible Lizard is an edited English translation of an animated Polish movie referred to as Dinozaury, written and directed by Witold Giersz and Ryszard Slapczynski. It was digitized by IU Libraries and made accessible to the general public by way of Media Collections On-line. It was additionally featured by Rifftrax (accessible to subscribers).
This edit is just 6 minutes lengthy, however remains to be loads entertaining. It’s filled with touches that date it even in case you missed the copyright yr. Maybe my favourite is the not-too-subtle implication that herbivores are failed carnivores. They’re not tailored to a widespread and various dietary useful resource. They simply can’t hack it as hunters.
However at the same time as I chuckled on the anachronisms and odd selections within the script, I used to be rapt by the totally charming animation, just like the tyrannosaur who walks by the body on the 5:32 mark with a really human gait. It’s arduous to choose a favourite second when nearly each second of the movie presents one thing enjoyable or weird.
Happily, the unique Polish movie can also be accessible on Youtube, in two elements. Benefit from the filmmakers’ unique imaginative and prescient, full with all the footage the American model unceremoniously minimize!
