Films: Cowboys Vs. Dinosaurs (2015)
Alias: Deinonychus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops
Location: Underground/Lake/Civilized Area
Height/Weight: Ranges from that of horses to that of small buildings.
Summary: Every time we pit cowboys and aliens against each other, it seems that nothing goes right for both either side or the audience. So why not something new? How about dinosaurs! They make everything better...right?
History: Deep below in the mines near Livingston, Montana, something has been unearthed. In the bid for valuable minerals, the miners have instead found a horde of mostly carnivorous dinosaurs waiting for their time to get out and see the world again. Sure enough, they break loose, and cause all sorts of havoc when they do so. It's mostly raptors, but every now and then there's a T-Rex.
Notable Kills: A raptor can beat a person in a swimming match. Who would have guessed?
Final Fate: After both the populations of man and beast have been decimated, the former comes out on top at last. However, just as everyone is recovering, it is revealed that something else was waiting in the mine...DRAGONS! Because why the Hell not?
Powers/Abilities: The Deinonychus have venom sacs in their cheeks, and can spit it all out, searing the flesh off bone.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3-It's just so painfully obvious that most of the dinosaurs are bad CGI pre-made assets running around and making a mess of the place. It doesn't help that the raptors are walking rip-offs of what "Jurassic Park" had conceived. Really, the whole lack of good effects lets this whole prehistoric invasion down.
Trivia: -This film was also known as "Jurassic Hunters".
-It simply cannot be overstated how we will never have accurate movie raptors until filmmakers owe up to discoveries that aren't even recent anymore, and just cover them in feathers already (and give them non-pronating limbs too). But then of course, that would take effort to animate, and "effort" is a foreign concept to most of these films.
