The dinosaur gets a makeover and then some in this fantastically groundbreaking documentary. Based on cutting-edge paleontology and the latest fossil records, Dinotasia presents a series of vignettes about dinosaurs, both familiar faces and some we have only found out about in the past ten years. The film uses CGI to bring the stories to life, but draws on animation's birth in silent film and early Disney to create proper, traditional visual storytelling. Werner Herzog narrates.

Directed by David Krentz and Erik Nelson in 2012, this 82-minute docudrama depicts the world of dinosaurs with brilliant animation.
Utilizing used and unused footage from "Dinosaur Revolution" ogiginally produced as a four-part Discovery Channel TV program, this feature film supposedly shows what "Dinosaur Revolution" was originally conceived.
Although it lacks serious and scientific contents, I enjoyed it as a unique, transporting journey in time as well as an entertaining piece.

Not really sure what to make of it but it was weird, pretty enjoyable and sometimes funny (dinosaur high on mushrooms for example) and worth watching for the Werner Herzog narration alone.

This is a fun movie, once you figure out what its purpose is. It is pretty snarky and anthropomorphic for nonfiction.

Apparently this film is a condensation of the series "Dinosaur Revolution", 2011, (which is itself inspired by Delgado's "Age of Reptiles" comics). It might be worth checking out if you like dinosaurs.

FIRST WORKS BY WERNER HERZOG THAT I DID NOT CARE FOR. SOME INTERESTING PARTS.
NEEDED MORE NARRATION. CGI WAS VERY GOOD.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”.
