Top Dinosaur Waifus

I was thinking about what to do for a themed Valentine’s Day post and since I’m on a Jurassic themed year I thought a post full of Dino Waifus seemed like a great idea. This proved to be more difficult and not really what I wanted to do but dammit, I had already wasted too much time on it to cancel it. I decided to choose the most “iconic” dinosaur women from different media so we have one in each category comic/video game/anime/film and I avoided any getting too close to anthropomorphic territory so Teryx from Dinosaucers didn’t make the cut.

Xenozoic Tales also known as Cadillacs & Dinosaurs we get our Comic Book pick with Hannah Dundee who happens to live in a future where Dinosaurs came back. She is a weird mesh of various character traits being a Diplomat, Scientist but also an explorer/adventurer. I can’t say she fits her first two roles very well but whatever it’s in her CV. I get a Lara Croft vibe from her being both a sexy and yet badass. I’m not a huge fan of the aesthetics that characters have in Xenozoic Tales but for not being a mainstream franchise and kind of obscure Hannah is definitely iconic.

The Land Before Time: Sing Along Songs

The Original The Land Before Time movie only didn’t have any musical numbers even if it did have an amazing soundtrack. Starting with the sequels however they all included Disney-esque musical numbers between the characters. At least 3 per movie, one even has 4 and that’s not all even the TV show sneaks in 2 musical numbers per episode.

Through out the article you can find some of my favorite songs that the movies had though not necessarily the best, I mean one song is literally about eating your friends, I can’t ask for more. It wouldn’t surprise me if musical Land Before Time makes another appearance in MiscRave.

The Land Before Time Franchise

The Land Before Time franchise started in 1988 with a successful movie which I remember always renting at the video store until I got my own copy. Luckily this was the time Jurassic Park came out which brought a resurgence in dinomania and we got a sequel a year later in 1994. We ended up getting a sequel every year until the tv show began and then later again a few years later.

As a kid I kept getting overwhelmed that new movies kept coming out until I couldn’t keep up and grew up. Most would always complain about why they kept making more of them but I didn’t really mind as I was not the target audience. But being such a huge fan of the franchise as a kid, I decided to watch all the movies and well I have to say I’m impressed even if they’re not the greatest pieces of cinema. In the coming days you’ll find links to my reviews of all 14 films, tv show and more. Continue reading The Land Before Time Franchise

French Land Before Time

Growing up I was a big fan of the Land Before Time and since I recently watched all the movies I thought about finding the original movie in French to practice. Called Le Petit Dinosaure et la Vallée des merveilles in France and just Petit-Pied: le dinosaure in Quebec Canadian French to practice.

I decided to choose a few clips I found on youtube from different parts of the movie that are fairly easy to understand, especially if you’ve seen the movie before. Some of the words do go above what I can understand but I feel satisfied.

I’m actually am not sure which version I ended up watching since my ear is not trained well enough yet to differentiate between both accents but I’m fairly sure it’s from the Quebec dub. And I think all the clips I chose here are from the version I watched but I may be mistaken.

Overall the voices aren’t too bad, they mostly resemble the originals, at least with Little Foot and Ducky (named Becky here), Petri can be hit or miss depending on the line and Cera for the most part is my least favorite.

And finally I have a fandub of Diana Ross’ If We Hold On Together from the movie which is in English in the movie but this version in French by miouneTV is great and I decided to feature it here. The lyrics are below.

Paroles:

Tu es bien loin
Mais au fil des jours
Suis ton chemin
Sans faire demi-tour

Vis en croyant
En tes rêves d’enfant
Les merveilles t’attendent là-bas
Vis ton histoire
Avec foi et gloire
Garde l’espoir qu’il y a en toi

Si nous restons tous ensemble
Nos rêves deviendront éternels
Ils nous protègent
On les entend
Près du soleil
Qui nous appelle

Les âmes au vent savent comment voler
Cherchons l’étoile
Qui puisse nous guider
Là où on sera
Une fontaine sera là
Pour soigner le passé

On croit, on prie
De tout notre esprit
Pour enfin y arriver

Si nous restons tous ensemble
Nos rêves deviendront éternels
Ils nous protègent
On les entend
Près du soleil
Qui nous appelle

Si nous sommes perdus dans le noir
L’amour nous guidera
Sa lumière nous réchauffera
Et nous donnera l’espoir

Si nous restons tous ensemble
Nos rêves deviendront éternels
Ils nous protègent, on les entend
Où les âmes ont des ailes
Près du soleil
Elles nous appellent…

Dinosaur Year

As mentioned in my 2018 update, in order to hype ourselves to a new Jurassic Park movie this year with Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. What you’ll see this year is I’ll be focusing on Dinosaur and Jurassic Park related articles leading up to the sequel of my favorite movie in June.

That doesn’t mean that there won’t be any other type of articles, but normally I reserve all my Dinosaur articles for Jurassic June but this year they’ll instead be spread out through out the year with hopefully one dino-related article per week so it won’t be affecting other content on MiscRave.

I already have a handful of Jurassic Park related articles that need to be written as well as a list of dinosaur movies and shows that will be reviewed.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Premier Trailer Event

The Trailer for Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom was released December 5th 2017 after it being long awaited by fans. Universal MX decided to hold an event for “The Biggest Jurassic Park Fans” and it seems they were good at finding them since I was able to get an invitation to the event for the premier of the trailer for Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom.

jurassic world premier event

What I found odd is that they would hold an event just for a trailer for a movie, it felt a bit silly to have to drive to the specific cinema just to watch a 2 minute trailer that would be online only an hour or two later anyway. I did not think too much about it since it was Jurassic Park and confirmed that I was going, it’s not any day I get to go to an event for one of my favorite franchises and I would at least get to see the trailer on the big screen and maybe some bonuses.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom; What’s in a title?

We had speculated what the fifth Jurassic Park movie was going to be called for a long time with names like Jurassic Park 5, Jurassic World 2, Jurassic War, Jurassic _____, Epoch, Ancient Futures and we finally got the name alongside the new poster which was Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. But is it a good title?

Jurassic Park Logos

If we take a look at the history of the film franchise we can see that Jurassic Park has never had any consistency in the titles. As a kid I was always bothered by The Lost World: Jurassic Park as I wanted the title to be Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Of course back then I didn’t know that the book sequel didn’t even include the Jurassic Park moniker and only went for the generic The Lost World title. Then we had Jurassic Park 3 which got rid of the subtitles and went with the three claw marks ///. Jurassic World was once again the name of park in the movie even if it did drop Park from the franchises name. And with Fallen Kingdom we can see that the only logic recurring theme is the inconsistency.
