Generally entertaining sci-fi thriller wants very much to be a Spielberg-esque blockbuster, but never quite makes it. It's a decent enough story, with a likable cast and some cool vintage special effects. But it just never quite distinguishes itself as anything all that special. Watchable, but not all that memorable.
Charming little time travel sci-fi adventure. Even though it's little more than a fish out of water tale, it gets everything right character-wise. One of the few true surprises in the time travel sub genre.
