Not all dinosaur movies are equal, as anyone who's seen both "Jurassic Park" and "Tammy and the T. Rex" can tell you. However, that's not to say that even a truly bad movie about dinosaurs or prehistoric animals (not to mention a pretty good one) can't have a truly memorable tag line that packs people into theaters or Netflix queues. Here are the most rousing dinosaur movie slogans in genre history.
