When Mikey crashes his unusual (haha) remote controlled airplane that probably shouldn’t have worked anyway, he sends one of his female friends to retrieve it, since that’s a woman’s job or something. But she falls into a hole and accidentally finds a so-called dinosaur bone that was clearly planted in the dirt as it was hardly buried at all. The only conclusion is that it’s a dinosaur bone, so Mikey swipes it for his new ‘science project’. Now all they have to do is research some creationism versus evolution talking points, use an archaic computer program to look up types of dinosaurs, and avoid the evil bully Simon, who is bent on destroying the science project for some reason. Just another day in the life of a Bob Jones kid.
Production Quality (0 points)
Another day, another poor production spewed from the minds of white patriarchal Christians. So much for making Christian things quality. Video quality is grainy and camera work is pedestrian. Audio quality is quite low, including a stupid childish soundtrack. Sets and locations are limited to that same old ‘bed and breakfast’ from Treasure Map and a few others. Special effects are horrid, including a stupid little beeping computer program that was clearly made for children. Finally, editing is thrown out the window as a good portion of the beginning of Project Dinosaur rehashes things nobody cares about from Treasure Map. In short, there is little to no point in making movies like this except to push an agenda, as we will see next.
Plot and Storyline Quality (0 points)
There is zero purpose in an unwanted remake of one of the world’s most horrid films of all time except to push the agenda of creating an extremely rigid dichotomy between creationism and evolution by making a strawman out of everything the writers disagree with. This propaganda piece is barely an hour long, including rehashing from this movie’s predecessor, as if we care where these characters came from. These perfect little white robots are programmed with childish dialogue and talking points that expose the ridiculous patriarchal fundamentalist worldview of the creators. Essentially, with no real conflict or substance, the only reason to waste your time on this mess if you need a good laugh.
Acting Quality (0 points)
Who ever thought it was a good idea to copy over a majority of the Treasure Map cast? The only ones missing are Edward White Eyes and his grandfather. But this doesn’t alleviate the fact that not a single one of these cast members should have ever been cast ever again, period. Yet when you have such a limited pool of perfect little white people who agree with your worldview, what’s a film maker to do?
Sadly, the saga of these white kids ended with Project Dinosaur and we have no more chances to know what happened to them! As if we cared about what they were doing in the first place. In all seriousness, it should be noted that the creators of Box Office Revolution were all homeschooled yet we wholeheartedly disagree with the worldviews propagated by fundamentalist Christina groups like Bob Jones. We have nothing against this model of education, but we do take issue with Christians who purposely isolate themselves in bubbles and refuse to listen to people on ‘the other side’. This is the real problem with this type of movie, as it further sinks Christian film to new lows. But hopefully we are past this sort of thing in Christian entertainment.
