The following list is the Official Definitive List of the 100 best dinosaur movies of all time.

I found 26 different ranked lists online of “best dinosaur movies of all time” and pulled them all into Excel and merged them all to get this definitive compilation.  Some only included natural disasters, while others included aliens or monsters. With so many lists, I think they even out. See my Methodology page for the research process that was used, including links to all 26 lists that were averaged.
