   I came across this gem a few days ago and was just going to put a quick tip, but I think it's God-awful enough for a review.      To start, I was shocked to find out this was not a "Sy-Fy" original after I looked it up. I came across it this weekend after plopping down at 11pm in a hotel room at Lake Tahoe and it was one of the few channels getting decent reception. Would I expect anymore when the villains are dinosaur apes and an evil time travel company …

Time Waves and Monkey Lizards. Yes, you heard me correctly.
Director Peter Hyams is no rookie when it comes to bad films. He has made more than his fair share. The best that can be said is that he’s an average director capable of decent work. His films range from acceptable (Outland and 2010: The Year We Make Contact) to forgettable (The Star Chamber and Narrow Margin) and ocasionally regrettable (Timecop, Sudden Death, The Relic, End of Days). None of his past films, however, reach the level of cinematic atrocity that A Sound of Thunder manages to …

I like "A Sound of Thunder." I can't pin down exactly why, but I do.

Sir Ben Kingsley plays Charles Hatton, an opportunistic man in the year 2055 who uses time travel as a way to promote "safari" hunts throughout time. The team that takes high paying customers on these hunts is headed …

Ray Bradbury is a great American author and one of the people that popularized science fiction into the mainstream a half a century ago. His stories and novels are widely read and studied. His stories would make great motion pictures if they were ever given the right treatment. Unfortunately, other than the Disney adaptation of SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES, none of his stories or novels has ever received the big screen treatment they deserve. One of Bradbury's most memorable and enduring short …

Ray Bradbury, run and hide! This tacky film version of his short story from the 1950s about time travel and the effect it might have on de-evolution is not well known from the theatrical run (did it have one?) and exists now as a DVD on the shelves released during a slow week.     What looks to be a fancy sci-fi thriller form the opening scenes quickly fools us as the computer generated graphics are re-run unaltered throughout a film that is supposed to be about different 'trips' …
