Directed by: Luc Besson

Written byLuc Besson (screenplay), Jacques Tardi (comic books)

Year: 2010

Plot: Renown paleontologist and mystic, professor Something de Something, unleashes series of disastrous events once the power of his mind causes hatching of a fossilized egg of a pterodactyl, kept in a Parisian museum (sic!). The flying dinosaur complicates the life of a daring young journalist, Miss Blck-Sec, specializing in being the early 20th century female version of Indiana Jones, a la Francaise.

Pros: Amusing little ditty.

Cons: Too ironic for its own good. It’s very self consciously pastiche.
