In general the Spinosaurus is a very awesome addition to the franchise even if they glorified it a lot.

I actually liked this film a lot as a kid. Helps that it brought back my favorite character, Alan Grant, and it pretty much codified the now-ubiquitous Spinosaurus as the T-Rex's arch-rival. I think most kids identified with Eric Kirby, thinking we'd be the badass kid who could survive all alone on a dinosaur-filled island for weeks. I think it was also the first movie in the series to use flying dinosaurs as a legitimate danger instead of just skybox setpieces.

I remember changing my ringtone to "♪♫♪ Kirby Paint & Tile Plus in Westgate! ♪♫♪" after downloading it from some shifty 90s website, haha

There were some great tie in junior novellizations about Eric Kirby’s life on Isla Sorna during those weeks. In the book I read you find out hiw he got the T-Rex pee.

The other jr. novel deals with the escaped Pteradoons at the end of the film.

I actually rewatched it a couple days ago in a JP/JW marathon.

Spino is my favorite antagonist. I like him more than the T-Rex frankly.
Yeah. I think people mad a big deal out of the Spino killing the T. Rex. It didn't bother me that much as a kid. Yeah it is inaccurate but when has JP ever been scientifically accurate?

It didn’t bother me either. It was a scene to solidly Spino’s supremacy. Also if you look carefully in HD, the Rex is not a full grown adult, its sub-adult/ teenager.

I could be wrong about the Spino in Dominion. Henry Wu has all those embryos, eggs, and DNA samples.

Tiger followed the massive dragon,  gulping audibly. . " i.. want to help the mice that consider me a god. protect them, have some fun with some abilities. " tiger said. ' like.. calming the weather or something. ' ' Tarrax lead Tiger out to a bare field, then had him stand in a circle ' ' first- a  demonstration. show me your abilities.  i'll even be a bit sporting ' tarrax gestured and in a flash of the tribe of mice that considered Tiger a god were gathered on a surrounding circle., and they bowed in Tigers presence. ' W-what do you want me to do/' Tiger asked as Kitty approached and took a seat. ' Anything. create a apple pie , or a pumpkin, or a pile of corn. anything associated with the harvest. You ARE a god of harvest after all. " Tarrax said, ok. ok. Apple pie' Tiger proclaimed... and nothing happened. ' Apple pie!" he repeated.. and still nothing. Apple pie! pumpkin pie! Grape pie!' he intoned.. and still nothing. tiger looked over at tarrax whose face had not changed. 'make they pray to you' Tarrax said. ' my dear mice, Pray to me so i can create .. a feast." One by one the mice prayed, and Tiger commanded again for am apple pie.. and still.. nothing..' usually something happens by now.' kitty said ' it has whenever he tries this in the past .' Perhaps it is simply a matter of trying too hard. '' Tarrax mused. ' relax, Tiger" kitty ' called out.  ' picture something positive.. like.. your wooing of me..' you didnt give up !' Finally, tigers paws began to glow and he created a large apple pie brimming with apple slices. , tiger sank to his knees. ' t-there' he panted.  " i finally did something." " Give me your application>' Tarrax said. " you're going to destroy it.." Tiger figured. "  no. theres a minor Gods division on the council. minor gods get approved much more easily than major gods. Now let me be clear, that doesnt mean you'll be okayed' Tarrax said. " Most arent, in fact. I know, because I'm a council member myself.' He said.  Tiger smiled and handed over the application. ' when will i get a response?' tiger asked. " It depends on the number of applications.' Tarrax said. Remember we get applications from across the omniverse. Every planet wants their divinities and gods recognized , no matter how small."" why dont we celebrate with a pizza?' kitty said as tarrax flew off. " make it a stuffed crust cheese ' Tiger said  the pair walked back towards the town.
