    The People That Time Forgot

    ★★★

    This is the second film in the Time Forgot series following The Land That Time Forgot. It is based on an Edgar Rice Burroughs story.
    This is the type of dinosaur movie we had before Jurassic Park came along in the nineties. The effects were what they were and there were some good sequences. The airplane fight with the Pterodactyl was a highlight.

    The camera work and cinemaphotography are a major part of this film. You feel like you are right there. The long shots without edit in this movie are super impressive.

    It is not an easy film as it shows the brutality of WW I. It is intense and your blood pressure will change more than once.

    This film should be seen on a big screen. The sound and soundtrack enhance this experience.

    Brutal, sad, honest, and an experience you will not soon forget.

    Peace, it really is worth it.

    No spoilers or plot details here. Chalk me up as one of the people who enjoyed this film.
    I am reacting on feelings here and I felt happy with this and I was smiling at the end.
    I have no idea if this is how the arc was originally intended or not. Certainly neither of the two earlier films in this trilogy could be ignored. Yet, I feel an honest effort was made to please old school Star Wars fans…
