Nolte: Top 5 Dean Stockwell Movies

Most of us discovered Dean Stockwell, who died last week at age 85, by way of the television series Quantum Leap (1989-1993), where he memorably portrayed Admiral Al Calavicci, a cigar-chomping horn dog and right-hand to Sam (series star Scott Bakula). Over 97 episodes, Stockwell showed up every week with that unmistakable gleam in his eye to help Sam fix American history and find his way home.

‘Tomorrow War’ Review: Amazon Delivers a Perfect 4th of July Blockbuster

Tomorrow War is unpretentious, exciting, occasionally moving, and just plain fun. Everything you want in a summer movie is right there: a big, straight-forward concept, terrific special effects, an appealing movie star, a very appealing supporting cast, plenty of action, stakes that feel real, a load of laughs, likable characters, and a universal theme about the importance of family, most especially fathers.
