Ah, dinosaurs! There’s something about them that all ages find fascinating. Toddlers to dodderers; there is a decent sized cohort in every age group. And within each age group there is a whole range of expertise. Some can identify them all; from Aardonyx to Zupaysaurus. Others struggle to tell a Brontosaurus from a Thesaurus. Regardless, there is a fascination with massive creatures who were walking the Earth over two hundred million years ago.
This year (2023) is the 30th anniversary of the release of the film that changed everything – Jurassic Park. Before this, screen dinosaurs were jerky, obviously stop-motion animated creatures; Ray Harryhausen was good but there was room for improvement. That improvement came in the form of CGI – Computer Generated Images. Let’s be honest though, this was still early days but the difference between Jurassic Park and, for example, When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth is immeasurable.
We here in RunPee Towers are no different in our appreciation of Dinosauria. As a result we have written a fair few articles about the beasties and seen more than a handful of films about them. So I thought that it was time that we put together another of our hubs.
