Saturday Double Feature: Walking With Dinosaurs (2013) and…

Saturday on the blog means Saturday Double Feature, right? Remember, the basic idea here is to take a movie that is out in theaters now, and pair it up with another movie from the 1980s or before. Sometimes the connection will be obvious, and sometimes it’ll be a little less so, but that’s part of the fun.

Yeah, there were a lot of movies opening this weekend, but instead of going with one of the “big” movies, I decided to try to pair something up with one of the smaller ones: the 3D CGI-fest Walking with Dinosaurs.

At first I thought it might be a tough choice, since there have been a lot of dinosaur flicks over the years, but as soon as I read the official blurb accompanying the trailer, I knew there was only one choice. Here’s what the description says:

For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth

Obviously, given that, there’s only one way to go, right?

Yep, from 1970, it’s Hammer’s When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, which starred the luscious Victoria Vetri as Sanna, a woman on the run from her tribe. And, of course, dinosaurs!

So, do you have any other ideas for pairing films with When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth? if so, let me know below. And also let me know of any other upcoming movies you’d like to see “double featured”. Consider it, if you will, your chance to challenge me to come up with an interesting pair.

Until next time, Happy Viewing!
