Gyllenhaal's got range, it could work.
Still won't get an Oscar nom.
Dinosaur performances get continually overlooked. It's a real problem with the industry.
Daniel Day Lewis would win an Oscar for that. After altering his genome to become a velociraptor for five years of character research.
This guy goes above and beyond. There needs to be more velociraptor parts in general in Hollywood. I was watching The Notebook recently and believe there wasnt a single line spoken by any dinosaur. I mean that film was crying out for raptor (and probably allosaurus but that is a story for another day). They focused way too much on Gosling and McAdams which took away from what they were trying to achieve. Especially being set in the time period and location it was, having no herds of Gallimimus stomping them at least during the outdoor intimate dialogue scenes took me out of the movie a little. This refusal to write in prehistoric creature parts even when not doing so so obviously hurts a film is one of the main issues I have with modern filmmaking.
It really boggles the mind that such massive creatures like the Brachiosaurus used to roam the Earth for millions of years. I mean, just imagine how different the world had to be for nature to sustain and select these creatures for natural selection.
That's an awful lot of Dino poop.
We've had imaginings of what it was like back then based on fossil/skeletal remains etc but imagine how crazy it would be to be able to go back in time and see what was going on live.
I'm imagining a whole ecosystem living on top of sauropod species. Small Avian dinosaurs or Pterosaurs probably lived on top of those or flew around them at all times.
Who knows, maybe even some species of symbiotic Fungi or Insects, parasites, could live their whole life on one and never know anything else.
That wou ld be cool, a moving garden.
Lol, they're not THAT big.
LMAO that would be hilarious. I want Steve Buscemi as allosaurus now.

How can they speculate what a new Dino looks like based off of a few vertebrae?
This Claw-Faced Sea Monster Was Literally Born to Kill
Anyone here familiar with the computer game Saurian?
They're in the process of redesigning their T. Rex model, and they're aiming to create the most accurate T. Rex ever (based on current evidence). Here's what they came up with so far:
No feathers, according to a 2017 study.
It really does boggle the mind, yeah. I suppose the closest we've got is the Blue Whale if we were looking for some sort of comparison.
I don't know how accurate it is now (by the latest scientific standards) but the BBC Special Walking with Dinosaurs specifically stated this was the case on the larger Sauropods - they used the Diplodocus as the example here.
Ah, the ever-fluctuating feather/no feather debate. Personally I think I prefer Dinosaurs without feathers, but then that's probably because I first saw them without. Had the first Dinosaurs (in toys/film) had feathers, then by comparison, it's quite likely those now without would seem... naked.
The Blue Whale is probably the biggest animal that has ever lived on Earth.
True. I was thinking of the Humpback for Brachiosaurus comparison, though even that may be a tad on the smaller side.
