My sons and I watched The Good Dinosaur earlier last night. The movie is a dinosaur adventure story. In the film, dinosaurs were never killed off and remained the dominated species on Earth. The Good Dinosaur is an OK film. But I thought the movie should have been better because it’s a Pixar film. I’ll admit it, I hold Pixar to a higher standard and expected The Good Dinosaur to be as good as their other movies. It’s not. But I’m sure most kids will like it anyway.

There’s a new exclusive series coming to Netflix. It’s called DinoTrux, and DreamWorks Animation will be premiering their first original series this Friday on Netflix. The series takes place in prehistoric time and features creatures that are part dinosaur and part truck. I saw a screener for the first episode recently. I think kids will love the new show — especially children who are into dinosaurs. I’ve only watched one episode, but I like what I’ve seen so far. The new series kinda reminds me of the earth vehicles in Bob the Builder series. As I mention previously, DinoTrux debuts this Friday (August 14th) on Netflix.
Dads and moms, I have a fun giveaway for the little dino in your family. Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, I’m giving away a Blu-ray copy of Walking With Dinosaurs. The movie will be released on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow. Walking with Dinosaurs combines cuteness with dinosaurs. This title is perfect for a dino-loving child. BTW, the Blu-ray has some amazing special features where you and your whole family can learn more about the dinos and their habitats.
Jurassic Park (Universal Studios) will come out in 3D in two weeks (April 5, 2013). I love that movie. It’s a great story and the film keeps you on the edge of your seat. I saw it in 2D many years ago. I bet the 3D version is even better. If you’re a Jurassic Park fan, then you are in luck. I’m giving away ten sets of front of the line tickets to an early screening of Jurassic Park 3D. Here’s the catch, the contest is limited to people in the Portland or Seattle area.
