The Greatest Dinosaur Movies Ever

List Criteria: The best dinosaur movies in film history.

A list of the best dinosaur movies going all the way back to the dawn of cinema. We think we've included all of the best ones, but if you believe we missed one, please feel free to add it to the list yourself.

Dinosaurs have been a favorite among movie goers for almost a century. This list includes all types of dinosaur films including silent movies, dinosaur movies for kids, live action, animation, new, and old. Dinosaurs are a subject-matter loved by all age groups, which makes them ideal for film making. (After all – every person, young and old, has their favorite dinosaur.) Be it a comedy, a drama, a sci-fi, or a horror film, dinos can be found everywhere.

 Perhaps one of the most famous and popular dinosaur movies of all time is Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park. Originally released in 1993, this science-fiction, action-adventure movie was based on the Michael Crichton book of the same name (Crichton also co-wrote the film's screenplay with David Koepp). In 2013, Jurassic Park 3D was released in theaters, to celebrate the movie's 20th anniversary.

 Several films (including the aforementioned Jurassic Park) with dinosaur themes are among the best movies of all time, and certainly among the most rewatchable.The great dinosaur films on this list are beloved by so many movie fans of all ages. From The Land Before Time (no doubt a children's favorite) to Land of the Lost and the animated classic Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, this list includes the best dino films in the history of cinema.
