The word "Dinotopia" is a portmanteau of "Dinosaur", which means "terrible lizard" in Greek, and "Utopia", which means "good place". Ironically, it literally means "terrible place". See more »
Karl, you're not on vacation; you're expected to work with the other students during the day.
Look, no disrespect, Rosemary, but I'm not a Dinotopian, and I don't want to become one, okay?
Do you intend to eat our food?
Well, yeah, I guess.
Then you help us make it. Starting now. And please address me as Matriarch in the future.

I have never been more jubilant about mini-series (or a four-hour movie, whatever you prefer)
I saw the first part of Dinotopia on television. In advance, I knew nothing about it, and I thought it would be just another cheap movie with horrible effects and only a few dinosaur scenes. I have never been that wrong! Dinotopia is a gripping story with splendid animation, I have immediately bought it on video! The movie contains marvellous landscapes, introduces some new ideas about dinosaurs (the ability to speak, intelligence, the way they survived extinction), is filled with magnificent music and contains fascinating ways of human-dinosaur interaction. A must-see for almost everyone, since there are no gruesome blood-scenes. My points of comment:1) a total of four seconds bad acting, and 2) a couple of gaps in the script (however, very small). In contrast to Jurassic Park, this movie has very little scenes with flesh-eating dinosaurs. Dinotopia can count itself to the best dinosaur-movies ever (which is, even now, a disappointing small group), and is a movie I want to watch over and over again! Only he who is blind or deaf, doesn't like dinosaurs or adventure and/or wants to have killing action every second of a movie has to ignore this masterpiece.
