Poirot: The Movie Collection Set 5

Poirot: The Movie Collection Set 5

| August 16, 2010

The great mystery novelist Agatha Christie’s work has been translated on film in many different ways; movies, tv miniseries and specials galore. Perhaps one of the most successful of these translations is the PBS Mystery! Series version of the Inspector Poirot stories. David Suchet’s Poirot, while perhaps not quite the whimsical-yet-cunning Belgian Christie wrote so […]

The Wildest Dream: Conquest of Everest

The Wildest Dream: Conquest of Everest

| August 12, 2010

This documentary is a fascinating tale of two parallel storylines – one is the story of George Mallory and Andrew Irvine who infamously attempted to climb Mount Everest in 1924 and mysteriously disappeared, and the other is about Conrad Anker, one of the most well-respected mountain climbers who tries to repeat Mallory and Irvine’s climb […]

Allison Scagliotti and Neil Grayston, What’s Next for Warehouse 13 and Eureka

| August 12, 2010

The Syfy Channel does a great job with new and interesting series. It seems when one ends, another favorite is starting up again. Last week they took this even further doing a crossover between Warehouse 13 and Eureka, with Neil Grayston’s character visiting Warehouse 13, and Allison Scagliotti’s character visiting Eureka. They got together in […]

An actor’s career can go up and down throughout the decades. Only a few are lucky enough to benefit from the support of a dedicated following that will buttress them throughout their years on the screen. The science-fiction community is notoriously loyal to their favorite subjects and have been known to clamor for a favored […]

After.Life

After.Life

| August 11, 2010

I think the best way to relate my reaction to After.Life is to start by addressing one of the special features included on the release, called “Delving Into the After.Life: The Art of Making a Thriller.” One would expect this featurette to talk about the production, perhaps showing us some behind-the-scenes footage, talking with the […]

Welcome

Welcome

| August 10, 2010

Welcome is such a stirring movie that I became so caught up in it. But I expect that from Film Movement offerings, because they are always so entertaining. Welcome is a story about true love and isolation, all in the midst of political persecution, as Bilal, a 17-year-old Kurdish refugee finds himself in France, running […]

The Other Guys

The Other Guys

| August 8, 2010

The Other Guys is a funny cop movie that pairs an unlikely duo as partners, even when one of them would rather do the police department’s books, as opposed to handling a gun and going out in the field. Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell play the other guys, in that they are not in the […]

Who’s to know what really really goes on inside the halls of an undisclosed location in Langley, Virginia. The inner workings of the CIA have long been the realm of rumor and speculation, the fuel for dramas of espionage fueled by the terror of the cold war and the uncertainty of today’s ordeal with international […]
