Re: Reviews of "Sound of Thunder"



Even here in movie-land, the mere-mention of that film in it many years of pre-production has only resulted in eye-rolling. It was the film no one wanted to work on. Even dinophiles grumbled at the awful adaptation of a classic story.

At least among dinophiles...

There are two there, with a review of another inbetween, so scroll
around.

One can pretty much forget about any good dinosaur bits:

 And the creatures, because they aren?t really, in the disturbingly
silly
 vernacular of the film, dinosaurs, range from being laughably hideous
to
 almost ninja-like in their ability to not be seen. Most scenes are so
 dark that any reasonable CGI creation could look like the Pillsbury
dough
 boy and still pass for a menacing dinosaur, yet these creatures move
with
 the ferociousness of a drugged milk cow...
