“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Reptile 2001 (1999)
aka Reptilian, aka Yonggary
At least a partial remake of "Yongary, Monster from the Deep," this Korean film has some of the worst special effects of any studio-produced film. A giant dinosaur is unearthed and aliens animate it and use it to attack Earth; why aliens waited for us to find this particular dinosaur is not explained. This one is completely by-the-book and cliched, with nothing interesting or noteworthy. The dialogue, especially, is trite. Some characters just seem to get forgotten.
