“In this updated adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic novel, a scientist in 1880s Victorian England builds a vehicle to transport him through time. He first travels to 1917 and the horror of World War I. Next, he sets his destination for 1940 and the start of World War II. From there he travels to a future London when he barely escapes nuclear holocaust. Finally, he sets his destination for the year 802,701 C.E., when he meets an innocent race of people living in an idyllic land … but this future may be the most dangerous of all his journeys in The Time Machine.”

“Danny Fields has played a pivotal role in music and “culture” of the late 20th century: working for The Doors, Lou Reed, Nico, Judy Collins and managing groundbreaking artists like The Stooges, MC5 and the Ramones. Danny Says follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, to “punk pioneer” and beyond. Danny’s taste and opinion, once deemed defiant and radical, has turned out to have been prescient.”

“Ronal is a young barbarian with low self-esteem, the polar opposite of all the muscular barbarians in his village. However, as fate would have it, responsibility for the tribe’s survival falls on Ronal’s scrawny shoulders, when the evil Lord Volcazar raids the village and abducts every living barbarian. With the exception of Ronal, who is forced to go on a perilous quest to save his enslaved clan and thwart Volcazar’s plot to rule the world? Along the way, Alibert the buttery bard, Zandra the gorgeous shield-maiden and Elric the elfin guide join our unlikely hero. To ultimately vanquish the enemy, the band must overcome awesome challenges.”

“A 80’s teenager, bored by traditional high school subjects like biology but fascinated by computers, accidentally taps into the Pentagon’s top-secret computer…the USA’s NORAD system. He starts what he innocently believes is a computer game called “Global Thermonuclear War,” but the “game” is real. The Pentagon’s best minds cannot shut down or reprogram the supercomputer that is readying a missile attack against the USSR, and thereby unleash Armageddon. The teen and his girlfriend attempt to aid the helpless Pentagon and, in a frantic race against a ticking “doomsday clock,” try to persuade the computer to end the “game.”

01) Raised by Wolves – Full Episode – HBO Max


“When two androids are tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet in the wake of a religious war, they learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous task. From Ridley Scott, legendary director of The Martian, Gladiator, and Alien, comes Raised by Wolves.”

I’m not trying to sell any product here…I just stumbled upon this free episode of a new show…watched it…found it to be really quite good…and decided to share it.

There is a cute boy, with a substantial role…Hopefully, he sticks around for a while in the series, and it doesn’t quickly “time leap” him out.

Merlin S1 E1: The Dragon’s Call [Full Series Linked]…

01) Merlin S1 E1: The Dragon’s Call

“In this episode:
With the arrival of a young warlock in Camelot a legend is born; Merlin.

Series DescriptionMerlin will one day be the greatest wizard that the world will ever know, but for now, he is just a young man, geeky and awkward, who must keep his talent hidden in a kingdom where magic is banned or face certain death.

GenreDrama

CastColin Morgan, Bradley James, Angel Coulby, Katie McGrath, Richard Wilson, Anthony Head, John Hurt

Director James Hawes”

I’m trilled to find this series to share.

This is the beginning episode of Merlin…a popular BBC series that went on for five seasons.

Asa Butterfield [super cute here!] makes at least two appearances.

This is a good series, even if it is uneven in some regards.

The CGI is not always great…There is the occasional tacky episode…

…but don’t let any dorky moments fool you…this is still a good quality show…even if it’s not always the deepest.

I’ve read reviewers of this series say that it would likely appeal to Harry Potter fans…Which I think is a fair assessment.

SnagFilms Has Shut Down :-(…

Date: August 28, 2020

01) SnagFilms

“Twelve years ago, after showcasing a documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, we realized how difficult it was for nearly every independent filmmaker to reach their full potential global audience via traditional distribution. SnagFilms was born out of that need. For 12 years, we provided a home to thousands of filmmakers – for many, the only way their films could be seen.

It has always been a difficult business proposition, and with the current economic crisis, an impossible one for us to continue. With deep regret, we have shut down the SnagFilms service, and by the end of May will be wrapping up our relationships with the filmmakers, production companies and other content owners we have been honored to serve for more than a decade.

Film fans, please continue to seek out independent film and television – these unique voices are more important than ever.

And thanks to all for your past support.

Rick Allen, CEO”

SnagFilms was one of the better “free movie channels”, you could find on Roku…and online…

It featured independent films, and was really quite great.

This is a pretty heavy blow, from my point of view.

I had a long list of URLs, to movies on their server which I’d intended on sharing here…In fact, I was browsing that list a bit ago, trying to find a movie to share tonight…when I was ultimately led to this heart breaking announcement.

This Special Friendship (1964)…

Date: February 28, 2018

01) This Special Friendship (1964 Movie)!


“English Subtitles Version! Drama / LGBT! Les amitiés particulières is a 1964 film adaptation of the Roger Peyrefitte novel Les amitiés particulières directed by Jean Delannoy. It stars Francis Lacombrade as Georges, Didier Haudepin as Alexandre and Michel Bouquet as Père de Trennes.

The movie is mostly true to the novel, changing only relatively minor plot points such as Alexandre’s suicide from poisoning to death by throwing himself from a train. Also, Alexandre in the movie is brown-haired, not blond, which also removes some of the inside jokes between Alexandre and Georges which are present in the book.

On the set of the film, Peyrefitte, who was 57-years-old at the time, met the 12-year-old aristocrat

Man / Boy Love Movie!”
