Now how can you resist a name like that? Dinosaur Battle Town is a short animated movie that happily delivers exactly what it promises, logic be hanged! For a short, experimental medium like this, I don’t bother to question the practicality of building a town on the back of a massive living dinosaur. That’s beside the point. The point being the Rule of Cool. Dinosaurs are cool, fantasy battles are cool, and towns are…well, towns are needed for lots of cool things to happen. For instance, you can battle over towns. And build them on top of dinosaurs.
This movie — which is funny in its style, though lacking a punchline — will probably leave you thinking: Gee, why isn’t my hometown on top of a gigantic dinosaur?
…No, it doesn’t make you ask that? Am I the only one?
