And like more people I was still under the umbrella of the gov and it's controlled media propaganda machine.

Dinosaur 13 is quite riveting and heart wrenching.

I was glued to the movie for it's entirely; educational and fascinating at the same time.

"Dinosaur 13" is a compelling, curious, and thought-provoking documentary.

This could have been a very interesting introduction to paleontology and dinosaurs, and I was expecting this very thing, but instead just gets lost in uninteresting and complicated legal drama.

This film isn't really so much a documentary about the 13th Trex skeleton found, but rather, the intense legal battles and drama over this find.

A riveting movie in which I will surely view when it either gets a wide release or a digital/DVD release.

It was mind boggling to watch the dubious legal gymnastics they performed to indict paleontologists who just made an incredible discovery contributing to human civilization.

This is the central question filmmaker Todd Douglas Miller explores in his engaging and beautifully shot new documentary, "Dinosaur 13".

It is documentaries like this that make me question why even bother with writing stories when there are great ones like this that are more compelling than fiction.

3/4 of the film focuses on the dizzyingly boring legalities of this struggle, which could have been concluded in a single sentence.

Dinosaur 13 is an engrossing doc with a big achy heart.

This is a great movie based on the compelling book "Rex Appeal: The amazing story of Sue, the dinosaur that changed science, the law, and my life.
