The success of Jaws (1975) spawned myriad knock-offs including this endearingly silly 1977 shocker produced and directed by Ovidio Assonitis (the latter under the pseudonym “Oliver Hellman”), whose previous money-spinner Beyond the Door (1975) was a Rosemary’s Baby/Exorcist hybrid....

Kaitlyn Dias provides the voice for the principal (human) character, Riley Anderson, a youngster who has recently moved to San Francisco with her parents (warmly voiced by Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan). For many children, a move can be traumatic, and that’s what Inside Out....

By 1990, some felt that filmmaker Robert Altman’s best years (and films) were behind him. Although he worked steadily through the ‘80s, none of his films achieved the success of M*A*S*H (1970) or Nashville (1975)....

Once again, we’re whisked away to the island of Isla Noblar, where tourists can experience prehistoric life and see living, breathing dinosaurs. The previous “mishaps” (ahem) at Jurassic Park have long been forgotten, and everything is totally, completely safe....
