Nuclear Clip: Unacknowledged!

It’s spring, so of course a young person’s mind turns to… government conspiracies, UFOs and the like.

Unacknowledged is the latest documentary that purports to tell the truth about Roswell, aliens and UFOs. The press release claims that 80% of the information in the film has never been seen before.

Sounds like fun (unless you’re a paranoid schizophrenic) – but a new clip has a new take that sets up that new information in a unique way.

Unacknowledged is now available on Digital and debuts on On Demand on May 23rd.

civil-war-dvd Ten-Commandments-DVD Morning Glory DVD

I’m playing catch-up in DVD reviews, this week, thanks to circumstances beyond my control. We’ll start with three entertaining titles from Paramount Home Entertainment: the slight, but entertaining Morning Glory; Cecil B.

MOVIE NEWS: Disneynature Says See a Movie, Plant a Tree!

Disney introduces Disneynature, its first new label in sixty years, with a truly unique promotion. For every paid admission over the course of the first of its premiere film, EARTH, Disneynature will plant a tree. If, say, ten million tickets are sold, then ten million trees will be planted [that’s a lot of carbon dioxide being converted to oxygen!].

EARTH 01

Disney’s goal is to ensure that it plants trees in areas that conservationists have identified as important hot spots of biodiversity. Disney will oversee the planting of the trees in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, which is considered the most endangered rain forest in the world. Today, only 7 percent of the Atlantic Forest remains. Disney is committed to ensuring the trees are planted and cared for to provide the greatest long term benefit for the planet.

EARTH, which premieres on Earth Day – April 22, 2009 – follows the lives of three animal families. The film is narrated by the legendary James Earl Jones. If the trailer for EARTH is any indication, the film should be breathtakingly beautiful.
