A majestic rare albino whale shark graces the ocean
Sometimes, Nature puts on a show that leaves Man awestruck. And these spectacular displays by two denizens of the deep left all who saw them beguiled by their grace and beauty. Divers were stunned by the sight of a 33ft albino whale shark as it glided through the waters off the coast of Darwin, an island in the Galapagos group. (Full Story)

Welp I finally got around to watching the Walking With Dinosaurs movie.
I’ve loved dinosaurs since I was a kid, and as awesome as the dinosaur models appeared in the ads, I really wanted to give it a watch.
The visuals were absolutely stunning. Each and every dinosaur moved with realism and believability. Even the creatures who weren’t the main focus in frame displayed animalistic behavior rather than just standing in the background like an inanimate prop.
The story however was a bit generic and predictable. I won’t spoil it on the chance anyone reading this might still wanna see it, but you’ll definitely see the climax coming ahead of time.
Another gripe I have with this movie is the dubbed over voices. …None of the dinosaurs move their mouths at all (with the exception of when they make a few roars/screams/squeaks), which leads me to believe that this film probably didn’t intend to have the characters speak… The dialogue doesn’t really seem in place. Besides from watching the creatures’ body language, you can sense what sort of emotion they’re going through without them needing to say, “aw man, now I’m sad.”.
The voices don’t add anything beneficial in my opinion. I believe they were probably added because they thought small kids would get bored without talking. ene.
The dialogue sometimes used unnecessary jokes that attempted to break the fourth wall, but did so in a clumsy, unamusing way. Like the alexornis who guides the movie along and occasionally interacts with the protagonists, would often quip about a species going extinct, The Big Bang, or what era it is. …It really annoyed me.
I’ve heard a rumor of a "Cretaceous Cut" of the film that has none of the annoying edits or voices, but I’m unsure of how to find it if it does exist. =o
It’s not a bad movie, but it could have been better had the story been less predictable. If you can find a version of the film without the obnoxious voices and you admire prehistoric creatures, then I’d recommend it.sickpuppycat's opinion There are humans at the beginning but they in no way interact with the dinosaurs. Just a head's up.
