All of the Ray Bradbury stories that I read share common traits.

In “A Sound Of Thunder,” Eckles gets frightened right when he sees the dinosaur that will attack them.

Due to the characters, none of them have their individual movie like Iron Man. However, James Gunn uses points of view and actor’s acting to enhance the intimacy among the characters that makes this movie fits into the team super hero film genre.

After cutting off all the hydra’s mortal heads one by one, Heracles removed the immortal head of the hydra, buried it under a heavy rock.
