If you’re a movie nut and you get all your movie channels from places like http://www.directstartv.com/localchannels/Cal then chances are you have seen both of these movies and scratched your head at the almost blatant similarities.

Even when the action picks up when things are frantic, the music Read the rest of this entry »

While the story line may come across as science fiction to many, the drama of it sticks out in my Read the rest of this entry »
