Fallen

Fallen

| May 15, 2010

With the recent popularity of the Twilight series, the DVD release of Fallen is likely to attract attention of those within the same audience. Although Fallen doesn’t have any vampires like Twilight offers, there is the element of the supernatural, a love story, and a very attractive lead character who, coincidentally, portrays a vampire in […]

Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints) stars in this Syfy Original Movie in which greedy, oil drilling Americans awaken the titular, mythical beasts from their ancient slumber deep beneath the Gobi Desert.

No Time for Sergeants

| May 15, 2010

MINE

MINE

| May 11, 2010

There aren’t many people out there that will argue that something didn’t happen the way it should have in Hurricane Katrina. People in this country shouldn’t have to suffer the way residents of the Gulf region did when the levee came crashing down. You can put the blame anywhere you want, as there is certainly […]

Edge of Darkness

Edge of Darkness

| May 7, 2010

Of the many films which have come out in the first half of 2010, I actually enjoyed Edge of Darkness more than most. I found it an intriguing remake of an 80’s film which played to the paranoia of the nuclear missile crisis of that time. The update focuses more upon the loss of a […]
