The Gang of Five
It is quite fitting that the sweltering hot days of July arrive right when the gang confront the barrens of the Mysterious Beyond in the fifth film showcase.  It is almost like us admins planned it that way or something.  :bestsharptooth

This month in the Monthly Showcase we are featuring the Land Before Time V.  Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in that topic.  Additionally, there is a new fanfiction prompt challenge for the months of June July, please check out this topic for more information.

Only four days late, this is a record in timeliness for me!  :chompysmile Though speaking of timeliness for those of us who are Chomper fans, this is the film where we finally got to see some more of the gentle sharptooth!



------------

In this topic please feel free to discuss your thoughts on the fifth film.  I will go ahead and present a few questions to get things started:

1) Considering how Chomper is depicted in this film, what can be ascertain about Chomper’s upbringing in the time since he was hatched by the gang?

2) This film brings up the question as to where Chomper’s knowledge of leaf-eater comes from, as he only learned a few words from the gang. What is your personal head-canon for where Chomper learned leaf-eater to fluency?

3) What is your opinion on the song “Friends for Dinner”?


Go ahead and check out my fanfictions, The Seven Hunters, Songs of the Hunters, and Menders Tale.

I believe this is one of my favorite sequels behind The Big Freeze.  Not only because Chomper is in it, but also because there isn’t a bad song in the sequel, so I think that was a first for me.
  • From what I can gather, his parents want Chomper to be a mean Sharptooth just like them, but Chomper was raised by leaf-eaters and would rather be nice.  By the time Littlefoot goes out to save Chomper, I think it’s save to say Chomper’s parents accept Chomper for being nice.
  • My guess is probably because pf the many talking and singing the Gang did.  I think that was enough for Chomper to learn how to speak like leaf-eaters as he grew older.
  • I think it’s my favorite song in the sequel, and one of my favorite songs in the AKOM-produced sequels.  I liked it even more when a reprise was done for the episode: The Brave Longneck Scheme (double-bonus: it’s one of my favorite LBT TV series episodes).
Anyway, I’m curious to see what other people thought of this movie?

I probably rewatched this sequel the most. The return of Chomper was glorious, and that he could  communicate with speech made it sublime.
This installment introduced Sharpteeth Talk or Tongues which shows us the growls and roars of Sharpteeth are language. Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous used this in Season 5 (released today, June 21, 2022), that carnivores make different pitched growls, moans, roars and etc to communicate. It seems Universal reuses ideas from their properties.
LBTV set up climatic dino battle model that Jurassic Park III and all the Jurassic World films have used with Carnivores having smack downs.
I gotta say “Friends for Dinner” is still one of my favorite songs. Its cleaver in its duo-meaning.

I would say this is now probably my favourite of the sequels, the return of Chomper was cool and it has one of my favourite scenes of Chomper's parents vs the plated sharptooth.

His parents were probably trying to raise him as a normal sharptooth - teaching him how to hunt, what they need to eat, etc, but I wouldn't be surprised if they found him several times 'playing' with his food. He was probably quite confused that he was supposed to eat them at first.

I like the idea that he met Ruby before he and his parents got to the mysterious island and she taught him how to speak the leaf-eater language.

3) What is your opinion on the song “Friends for Dinner”?

I don't really have a strong opinion on any of the songs so I'd say it's a decent song. My favourite for this film is still 'Always There' though.
