We were lost for words as we stepped out of a screening of 'Tarbosaurus - Dinosaur vs Dinosaur', but maybe this picture can help describe in part how we felt -

Dino

Yes dear readers, our minds were just as violated as the dinosaur being mounted in this picture as we watched this movie. And if this confession isn't warning enough, read on...

What's it about?
Speckles, the tarbosaurus, is only a year old when his mother, brother and twin sisters are killed by a vicious, red monster called One-Eye. The orphan is now forced to fend for himself and finds a mate in another lonesome lizard, Blue-Eyes. Unfortunately they can't seem to shake One-Eye off their tails and Speckles must eventually find it in himself to conquer his fear and take on his foe.

To begin, if you're going to pick a dinosaur you want viewers to empathize with, why not cast a loveable sauropod or a stegosaurus in the lead? The flesh-eating Asian cousin of the Tyrannosaurus Rex isn't going to win too many hearts, even if you decide to give him a few spots on his snout and call him Speckles. The movie might just entertain your children, but only if they're in fourth grade, or are younger. Take a child who's older and they'll soon be plotting to murder you while you sleep. The animation is a major disappointment, making us want to take back every mean thing we said about 'Ra.One'. Even the dinosaurs aren't impressive. Speckles' arch nemesis looks like Barney before hair and makeup (see below) and even the velociraptors look silly with some sort of a funky pouffe on their heads.

Barney and One Eye

Oh, the wonders of makeup!

 

What to do?
A Godzilla or Jurassic Park, this is not. Adults seeking prehistoric thrills had better stay away from this dino disaster. Spend good money watching this tripe and you'll be regretting it for the rest of the year.

'Transcendence' review: The film is clunky and lifeless

If Spike Jonze's 'Her' imagined a delicate, heartfelt romance between man and his artificially intelligent operating system, then 'Transcendence', directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, takes a less optimistic view of the future, cautioning us about the dangers of relying too heavily on technology. They're two sides of the same coin, but where 'Her' felt fresh, original, and forward-looking, Pfister's film trades in familiar clichés.
