god it scared the hell out of me when i was a kid... but now i laugh at it...
discuss the film, any of the 3 sequels (yes there is an unofficial 4th movie) and the book the whole thing is based on, which has a caveman and a brontosaurus in it!
Buddy, I believe that you're getting you're media mixed up. "Carnosaur" the book that the films are loosely based on, is basically what would happen if a closet-terrorist ran Jurassic Park in London. The flipside of that however was that this book was made before
"Jurassic Park". The thing you're possibly confusing this is with the film "Dinosaurus!".
Anyway, on to Roger Corman's film series, shall we?
The first film is obviously different from the book. But it does make a passing comment on the theme park idea, which a lot of people have also pinned to "Jurassic Park's" similar premise. Maybe Corman was also trying to make a homage to "Dinosaurus!" with the film's climax. All I can say is: Never underestimate what kind of damage a single dromeosaur can do. 3/5
The second film is the only one of the sequels I like, mostly because of what it was 'taking' from. The T. Rex is given a bigger menacing presence (deep, thundering roars can do that). The raptors have been reduced to 'Imperial Stormtrooper' status (Tey can wipe out an entire facility but can't handle a handful of more people??) though, so that was kind of a buzzkill. This film also gets credit for actually being a direct sequel. 2.8/5
The third movie... Was there really a need for this one? It's like Corman forgot what the fudge happened in the first movie and was trying to cover his own rear. It also didn't help that it felt like a completely different film... "Scorpius Gigantus" doesn't help that feeling. 2/5
And the less said about 'Godzilla's Revenge 2' the better. -3/5
