Back to the Jurassic AKA Dino Time, Unreleased Theatrical Film.

I have this to say about Back to the Jurassic AKA Dino Time. That Film was supposed to be released in Movie Theaters through the United States of America 12-07-2012. But it didn’t. Then in 2015, I was starting to be happy again, but then what happened? It only played in some half Dozen Movie Theaters in 6 or 7 States instead of premiering in Thousands of Movie Theaters in North America. Like the AMC ones. I feel like I have been betrayed. Not only that this Look alike reference of The Ice Age series has one of my favorite Dinosaurs, But one of my favorite voice talents Pamela S. Adlon & Tara C. Strong who voiced one of my favorite characters from my good old childhood times in the past. I will not rest until Back to the Jurassic AKA Dino Time is released Theatrically in America for a Month or two limited time. There, I said it. Sincerely, Dylan Geltzeiler
