I would also like to note that this is yet another dinosaur movie where the pteranodontids have teeth. Um, hello? It's Ptera-NO-don! The very name means toothless wing! If you want a large, toothy pterosaur, throw an Ornithocheirus in there instead.

I have to take issue with comparing this movie negatively to Fantasia; the dinosaurs were actually MORE accurate 76 years ago. At least the brontosaurs didn't have weird forward-bending elbows. Way to mess up the anatomy of... well, any tetrapod in earth's history, really. Don't animators usually act out movements they intend to draw, just to see if it makes sense?

Fantasia had superior animation-the designs of the dinosaurs looked really cool, better storytelling without any talking, and of course a great Stravinsky score.

Now, comparing this to the Walking With Dinosaurs and Dinosaur movies, that makes more sense :)

Seriously, this is the best review I've ever seen of this movie. I remember being so hopeful when I heard Pixar was doing a dinosaur movie. Then I saw the poster of the Gumbysaur and Jim Henson's Caveman Stereotype Babies. I almost cried.
