How We Determine Our Grades

Traveling from one era to another has long been the theme of science fiction. H.G. Well’s story The Time Machine is the basis for two film adaptations (one in 1960, the other 2002). For younger viewers, a group of teens discover they can move at an accelerated speed while the rest of the world appears to be standing still in Clockstopppers. Dinosaurs rule the screen in the action/drama Jurassic Park.

Home Video Extra Features

A Sound of Thunder releases on DVD with barely a peep of marketing fanfare. The feature is presented in widescreen with an audio track available in English, Dolby Surround 5.1.
