Actually, the San Diego sequence is a very faithful homage to another
monster movie -- GORGO.
Everything, from the arena, to the mom-monster following the child through
the city -- is taken from that film. (With, of course, the exception of
the opening homage to Dracula and the scrap of Godzilla tossed in).
I was quite surprised at the S.D. sequence. It didn't seem to fit in tone
or style with the rest of the film, and while I enjoyed the extra look at
the T.rex, it lessened the film, imho.
