Review:

Two astronauts (Warren Christie and Lloyd Owen) are sent on a secret mission to the moon to determine why NASA had deemed the lunar surface unsafe and cancelled all future missions. In the real world, this was due to funding issues which shut down the program in 1972, but this revisionist look at the space program shows that there was something far more sinister afoot than a lack of coin. And the Department of Defense wanted to know what it was. The filmmakers then supposedly found 80 hours of footage, which was classified but leaked out for the world to know in what I guess is a shout out to Wikileaks. Read more…

Review:

The moppet tries to tell her father, but he’s too busy in his work to pay any attention and Kim doesn’t believe her.

Review:

In this origin story of the Cimmerian warrior, Conan the Barbarian is shown from his bloody birth on the battlefield, literally cut out of his mother’s stomach by his father (Ron Perlman) to his training as a young warrior (Leo Howard) to his final transformation into the man (Jason Momoa) who would become a legend. It seems that an evil sorcerer Kahlar Zym (Stephen Lang) wants an ancient mask that holds horrific powers, but pieces of it were scattered to different Cimmerian villages after the war to keep the power from ever being used again. His searching brings him to Conan’s village, where the boy’s father is killed right before his eyes and Conan vows to get his revenge. But Zym discovers that the mask’s power has one other requirement, the blood of a descendant of the tribe for which it was forged and so he sends his witchy daughter (Rose McGowan) to find her. But when Conan rescues her from the evil sorceress, he finds himself in a web of not only barbaric events but magical ones as well. Read more…
