T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 78% Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk (2008) As entertainment, it can be heart-poundingly exciting. As education, it has some merit. But as a movie, Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk 3D is kind of a mess. - Sacramento Bee EDIT

2.5/4 56% Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag (2004) It's curiously uninvolving for any viewer who is not already into military flight or video games. - Sacramento Bee EDIT

3.5/4 45% The Young Black Stallion (2003) It's a full, flat 50 minutes -- long enough to get the job done, and fast and short enough that the kids won't get antsy. And luckily for us adults, it's well-crafted and keeps us interested, too. - Sacramento Bee EDIT

3/4 No Score Yet S.O.S. Planet (2002) It's short enough to keep younger students from getting restless. And it's visually and intellectually stimulating enough to keep adults from falling asleep. - Sacramento Bee EDIT
