Dog’s Movie House: “65” A Good Old Fashioned Creature Feature!

On the way back from a two-year mission in deep space, his ship is hit by a meteor strike and he crash lands on an unknown planet that just happens to be earth at the height of the Cretaceous period.

As long as you don’t think about the time travel elements too much, “The Tomorrow War” is a fun movie that has enough creature action to keep fans satisfied, at least until the next Jurassic Park film hits.
