    Prehistoric Planet

    ★★★★

    There’s this voyeuristic scene where the “camera” is positioned behind some palm fronds, providing a view of two Tyrannosaurus-Rexes having slow, lumbering sex with one another. It’s an extremely detailed and uncomfortably sensual mating session, during which—I shit you not—both dinosaurs look at the camera. They break the fourth wall, implicating you in their lovemaking.

    ★★★

    It’s as if the people who made this movie watched Beauty and the Beast and thought, “Why are they portraying Gaston as the villain? He’s clearly the hero. Hell, there should be SEVEN of him!!!!!”
