Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome [Blu-ray]
Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome [Blu-ray] (2013) NR
Director: Jonas Pate
Actors: Luke Pasqualino, Ben Cotton, Lili Bordan
Release Year: 2013

Review by: Mr G. - 10/16/2017 2:49 PM
"Prequel with a young and full-of-himself Adama. Here, he's a wet behind the ears pilot who eventually winds up on an ice planet with -- of course -- deadly Cylons! This movie is also a chance to see parts of Galactica when she was still new, supposedly some 40-ish years before the timeline of the TV series.

Interesting in that it uses tons of digital backgrounds and effects, replicating and sometimes exceeding in quality what was used in the TV series.

As you'll learn in the included extras, all the original sets had been dismantled, so digital was the way to go... and it all looks good. Those interested in graphic arts and animation will especially enjoy the extras.

Definitely worth a look if you're a fan of all things Battlestar Galactica."


Looking for Palladin
Looking for Palladin (2011) R
Director: Andrzej Krakowski
Actors: Ben Gazzara, Talia Shire, David Moscow
Release Year: 2011

Review by: Michel D. (michelann) - 10/16/2017 1:02 PM
"Looking for Palladin takes the viewer to Guatemala on a trek in search of an old actor who would rather not be found. Ben Gazzara is Jack Palladin, an Oscar winning movie star who is content to cook and give advice to his friends in a town that has adopted him with warmth. The colorful town where he resides is amazingly beautiful to travel through as we search for the elusive former celebrity."


Fallen (Snap Case)
Fallen (Snap Case) (1998) R
Director: Gregory Hoblit
Actors: Denzel Washington, John Goodman, Donald Sutherland
Release Year: 1998

Review by: Michel D. (michelann) - 10/16/2017 12:54 PM
"Great story, excellent writing, and exceptional casting insure this film will be appreciated and watched over and over by many. Denzel Washington, as usual, gives a top notch performance as John Hobbes, a detective on the trail of a dark mysterious monster that transfers itself from one person to the next simply by touch. John Goodman and Donald Sutherland along with the late James Gandolfini all combine to make this a top rate movie everyone will enjoy!"

"We've watched every season of this series and every season gets better. My husband and I love the characters and the predicaments they get themselves into. What I really like about this series, too, is that it's not fake or over-acted or corny. I've already started Season 8."

Review by: Michel D. (michelann) - 10/13/2017 1:16 PM
"Many have called this family “dysfunctional” but it can be argued that these are the “normal” folks just a bit under stress. There is the matriarch of the tribe in grandpa (Alan Arkin) who is so delightfully crude and vulgar, a reject from a retirement home and does not give a whit what the others think. The teenage boy is nearly catatonic…. What teenage boy isn’t at some point in his young life? Then Steve Carrell is the brother with suicidal tendencies after his lover rejects him. About the only sane one is the young girl, Olive, well played by Abigail Breslin, who has big dreams of superstardom and for whom this trek is put into play. Heading to California to enter the Little Miss Sunshine Contest they are crammed together in an old VW bus with problems of it’s own. Hilarious results just kinda happen and who’s family wouldn’t probably react the same way?"

ARN The Knight Templar - The Complete Series
ARN The Knight Templar - The Complete Series (2012) NR
Director: Peter Flinth
Actors: Joakim Nätterqvist, Sofia Helin, Peter Flinth
Release Year: 2012

Review by: Christopher M. (GilesGoatboy) - 10/12/2017 10:25 PM
"Sweden's most expensive film to date.....and it is glorious! No cgi here and the horsemanship and sword work is all real. The cinematography is breathtaking in both Sweden and the North African desert.
Do yourself a favor and get the longer version...
This is a great epic story with a host of detailed characters and relationships...it's far more than a mere action story...it portrays what the ideal of knighthood was all about....honor, devotion, faith, and above all enduring terrible adversity while maintaining those virtues.
The two young lovers Arn and Cecilia are separated and both forced to perform cruel penances for no less than 20 years....
Cecilia is punished by being shut in a convent where the vicious, hostile Abbess abuses her and makes her life a misery, even sending away her newborn bastard to be fostered. Because of his prowess and equestrian skill, Arn is sent on crusade for a twenty year duration.
Meanwhile, the warring clans of Sweden volley for power and kinghip with tides of fortune often turning to one clan or the other, often decided in blood.
When the crusader kingdom falls to the Saracens after Arn's term of service expires, how will he survive, or will he? When Cecilia's sentence is at last completed, how will she fare when Arn fails to return?
Don't miss this one....it's a classic!

"Amazon description:
Five teenage snowboarders are forced to spend the night in a mysteriously abandoned ski lodge. Except somebody or something already lives there. It is huge, savage and unstoppable]and now its pissed off. But if you think this is going to be the usual trapped teens stalked by a maniac movie, youre dead wrong: From the first chilling kill to the final horrific twist, prepare yourself for the smart, intense and award-winning European sensation that has terrified audiences around the world and put the edge back into the body-count genre.

You can watch with subtitles or dubbed in English. I thought is was great!"

"Description from Amazon:
Cavis and Millward (Bob & Larry) and Hope the Music Box Angel voiced by Grammy Award winning artist Rebecca St. James must convince Nezzer that Easter is about much more than candy and eggs. Inspired by Dickens' Christmas classic, this very special film explains why millions of Christians around the world celebrate Easter past, present and future.

I thought it was a cute movie and since there are not a lot of Easter Classics, it was nice to see VeggieTales put this out!"

"Willem Dafoe never lets down and Matt Dillon played well as the bad guy in this one. I thought the Louisiana plot in this one was well crafted and definitely worth a watch for action drama fans but do not watch if you are the weak of heart since it definitely has some violence in this flick."
