If this past year at the box office has taught us anything, it is that dinosaurs STILL rule the earth!
One could say that dinosaurs are Earth’s first REAL monsters…. “Carnosaur,” “Dinosaur Hell,” “Dinosaur Island,” “Dinosaur Lake,” “Extinction,” are just a few of the horror films that come to mind when I think of these prehistoric beasts… and of course there is the “Jurassic Park,” but a new documentary on Netflix shows you the nightmare one paleontologist, Peter Larson, and his team went through after discovering the largest, most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil in history.
The film documents the past 25 years of Larson’s life fighting with local land owners and the United States Government.
Larson ends up fighting for the fossil’s freedom and his own. The documentary has a great juxtaposition about it, which really helps tell a sad story and makes you feel for not only the paleontologist, but also for the fossil, Sue.
Todd Douglas Miller’s “Dinosaur 13” is by far one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.
People fight for causes and protest against our government daily… This film really shows a corrupt side of our judicial system. It is amazing how something that happened in the 90’s is still relevant today. Sure, people are not not he streets protesting about dinosaur fossils, but voices are STILL crying out for change!
So, if you are a Dino nerd like me, or if you a monster fan, I would really recommend checking out this documentary.
“Dinosaur 13” is available on Blu-Ray and DVD and is currently streaming on internet service providers.
