Some how through a native american ritual who is attempting to punish a person who has his land brings back a bunch of dinosaurs that terrorize a small town. Now i don't know how a guy can confuse bringing dinosaurs back to life with punishing a person who has his land wrong. The special effects of the dinosaurs are dreadful and often confusing due to lighting and such but it has a very slight (very slight) goofy appeal to it, yeah it's serious and yes i laughed a bit but some will enjoy it.

It was some action and twists and such. It had some good parts...put once again...why watch it? A special shout out to Sabrinas aunt, who did a golden globe worthy performance. By the way..fire the soundmixer....we could all hear that the waterfall was fake.

Nolan V (jp) wrote: There are two kinds of bad movies. One, just flat out one of the worst films of all time (Punisher: War Zone) or so bad its good. This movie falls under the so bad its good category. Steven Seagal, Morris Chestnut, Ja-Rule and Kurupt all star in the last Silver Screen Steven Seagal film until he came back in 2010 in a small part in Machete. This movie does everything right on how to make a bad movie. This is a PG-13 STEVEN SEAGAL FILM.....if that doesn't scream this could be the best movie ever made, then just look at the title, Half Past Dead staring Steven Seagal. This will be the primary set up for my new new show, Ask a celebrity, first episode is Steven Seagal.

Eduardo C (kr) wrote: Tragic, disturbing and devastating portrait of how boys become outcasts in World War two scarred Italy. Great example of Italian neo-realist cinematic style. Feels like part of a trilogy with the other masterpieces Bicycle Thieves and Umberto D. , also by De Sica. An essential masterpiece.

Even if you are already a big baseball fan, you will learn something from this documentary. Kevin Costner is a great choice for the narrator. His roles in "Field of Dreams," "Bull Durham," and "For the Love of the Game" have made his voice synonymous with baseball and the film just "feels" like baseball because of his narration. The documentary is split into different segments in order to cover pitchers from all generations and to show the evolution of pitching. Walter Johnson, Bob Feller, Nolan Ryan, and Aroldis Chapman were all the fastest pitchers of their individual era but who was the fastest pitcher of all time? This film does a side-by-side comparison of all four by making the proper adjustments for the different methods of recording the speed of each pitch and the results are fascinating. I loved the segment where a motorcycle raced one of Feller's pitches and I was very interested to learn the legend of Steve Dalkowski. I never realized that a character in "Bull Durham" was based off of him but this epiphany will make that film even more meaningful. Perhaps the coolest part of the film is the slow motion countdown of 396 milliseconds as Andrew McCutchen calculates his swing against a fastball. Aside from Cutch being a great representative for hitters around the league, the science involved in this sequence is well-presented. I also appreciate the science-versus-psychology approach to the rising fastball. Physics states that a fastball cannot rise at the end of a pitch but the psychological experience of the batters keeps them convinced that the myth exists. These are only a few of the things that you might learn about from this documentary but, regardless of how much you enjoy baseball, "Fastball" is a great film for anybody who enjoys science, history, or sports.
