Fridge / We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story

Fridge Brilliance:

  • The movie, about dinosaurs that have "evolved" to be smarter, is a flashback recounted by Rex to a bird he meets at the beginning. Also the bits with the crows; Prof. Screweyes has always had an adversarial relationship with dinosaurs, it seems. As a matter of fact, the whole movie has a bird motif going through it—it's set at Thanksgiving, Cecilia has the last name Nuthatch, and one of the dinosaurs in Rex's flashback has what looks like a tuft of feathers on its head. Considering that the relationship between dinosaurs and birds was mentioned in Jurassic Park, which Steven Spielberg also produced, this may not be a coincidence.
  • At the end, Screweyes was consumed by the crows. The crows were his personal phobia. Screweyes was literally consumed by his fear.

Fridge Logic:

  • Elsa freaks out and grabs onto one of the other dinos when they're dropped out of Captain Neweyes' ship. Yet she can fly.
    • Flight is not as easy as you think. Caught off-guard, it's easy to go into a freefall before you can get into a proper flying position
  • Why does Screweyes just stand still with his arms outstretched when the crows come after him in the end, instead of trying to get away? He practically let them eat him alive!
