The People That Time Forgot

People travel to a land that time forgot in this sci-fi adventure film. Someone aboard a biplane sees a pterodactyl, then says, "That's magnificent!" before shooting it down like the Red Baron because that's what people back in the olden days did with their biplanes and pterodactyls. Then some unconvincing dinosaurs attack sort of, and a bosomy, scantily-clad cave chick appears because it's in the script but it's not very interesting. A bunch of movie happens, like where the cave chick gets bench-pressed; but I became distracted by the fact that there's an entire genre of Japanse film about sea creatures playing sports and forgot to continue watching People That Time Forgot.

Yes, that's a real thing.

Amazing! How have I never heard about this? It's a crab playing soccer in a film called Kani Goalkeeper.

And this one is called Calamari Wrestler. I don't know what is happening in this clip, but it's fascinating.

I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that it's completely acceptable to watch a movie where a crudely animated stegosaurus pulls a biplane, but it's weird to watch a movie where a guy wrestles another guy dressed as an appetizer. Ah, the world we live in.
