The Valley of Gwangi (6/10)

This is Ray Harryhausen’s excuse to animate a rampaging T-Rex. The plot is cowboys versus dinosaurs which sounds a lot cooler than the actual end product. The characters are dull and so is the Southwest setting. While I always like me some stop motion animation, it looks especially dated here in a post Jurrasic Park world. Noteworthy: movie makers did not know the sound an elephant makes in 1969.
