  • King of Devil's Island Fantastic Norweigian-set film based on true events from the boys home/correctional facility on Bastoy in 1915. Formidable performance from the young cast, a very keen look at human nature and the power of drive for freedom. Best film I've seen in 2012 so far.
  • Sleeping Beauty vague description is "A haunting portrait of Lucy, a young university student drawn into a mysterious hidden world of unspoken desires."; but everything seems to lend to some kind of prostitution which lands it in the category of I can't quite decide what to make of this film. Sounds creepy for sure but I just can't imagine with the talent involved that it isn't amazing and/or social commentary. Stumped.
  • The Terror Experiment aka Fight or Flight, I'm curious about this one that has a fear-is-contagious/zombie feel, starring C. Thomas Howell, Judd Nelson and Jason London from 2010
  • The Darkest Hour Young folk go to Moscow to find and fuel financial dreams, and end up battling alien invasion! Although it's entertaining, I didn't find this one as good as it oculd have been.
  • The Iron Lady 2 time Oscar winning biopic with with Meryl Steep as Margaret Thatcher
  • The Terrorists with Sean Connery and Ian McShane
  • Brokedown Palace with Kate Beckinsade & Claire Daines from 1999
  • One Life nature documentary that looks absolute spectacular (Not currently available on Amazon.com).
  • Sharkwater: Special Earth Day Edition One of the first documentaries I ever reviewed! Great film spreading the word, love, and sad endagerment of sharks (Not currently available on Amazon.com).
  • Into the Abyss Werner Herzog's most recent doc following death row inmate Michael Perry.
  • Prince and the Showgirl The film that My Week with Marilyn is inspired by.
  • Logan's Run: Complete Series I had no idea there *was* a TV serious that followed the trippy dystopic film from the 70's. Might have to check this one out
  • Dark Shadows: The Complete Original Series with the redux on it's way it's no surprize they are re-release the series, and not only the complete thing (update: it has a release date of today, but doesn't appear as available!); but you can get your hands on the choice picks of: Dark Shadows Best of Barnabas and Dark Shadows Fan Favorites
  • One Tree Hill: The Complete Ninth and Final Season I'm mystified that this show got to it's 9th season and I still don’t know what it's about…sports?
