Ancient Aliens - All 82 Episodes

Whether you believe in taking a mind-bending journey into our deep past about Ancient Aliens or rather just speculate with doubtful facial and verbal expressions, then Ancient Aliens: The Complete Seasons 1-6 is a great work of documentary filmmaking.

The DVD set covers from 75 million years of the most credible evidence unearthed, and there is an exploration of the ancient and mysterious, sacred relics, artifacts, and wall carvings to technologies, places, and lore. I donít know where to begin to explain all the stories or information about Ancient Aliens. There are so many searches for humankind's origins and even the secrets of the universe.

I was most interested in were the new interpretations of ancient texts reveal new historical possibilities. This might have been rehashing theories, but here are some of the topics that I found interesting: Were ancient gods really aliens? Were there secret codes? At best, these topics bring up conversations and questions about where we came from.

The series uncovers the alien dimension within secret codes, deadly cults, mega-disasters, and plagues; alien connections to dinosaurs, NASA, and even the Third Reich; and considers time travel, underwater UFO activity, ancient Martian civilizations, the possibility that some children have alien DNA - and if you can believe it, much more.

Sure some of these topics are farfetched, but itís interesting how they are presented in a believable form with 82 episodes.

Tony Jaa's Ong Bak Trilogy

I first saw scenes from Ong Bak on YouTube. I was dazzled with the fight scenes and the stories kept me interested as well. There are endless fight sequences with Tony Jaa, but the drama keeps the story flowing. Now, all three movies are in one fine package, which is perfect because Jaa is the real thing of martial arts movies.

And seeing these three movies in HD makes the action much more appealing. I am telling you it is filled with jaw-dropping stunts and bone-crushing kicks in crystal-clear precision. There is no skimping on production. Jaa takes the elephants by the horns and fights in a stampede. How does he perform these stunts? I have no clue. All the action is out in the open rural areas, which is nice for a change.

Jaa can act, too, while he also directs the movies. He has an amazing talent, and I donít think in the States he is recognized as he should be. Only diehard Asian fighting movie fans know of his stellar talent. Itís always fun and invigorating to see him onscreen, even when he is not breaking limbs and cracking skulls.

I have to pick the first movie of the trilogy as the best, which makes sense because there is more heart and effort in the original. Yes, the action is excellent in all three films, but the first Ong Bak is definitely a movie to experience again and again.

If you are not sure whether you want to see Jaaís movies, you need to check him out on YouTube. Like I said, that is where I was first introduced to The Ong Bak Trilogy. I have never looked back. They are classics as far as I am concerned.

The three stories comprise of the Thai warrior Tien (Jaa). He is a religious man and affirms his oath to peace. The first movie in the trilogy is about a gangster, who steals the head of the sacred Ong-Bak from Tienís village. Tienís adventure begins with a journey to Bangkok to fight for the return of the deityís head. Action thrives with Jaa performing his own unbelievable stunts.

The next movie is a prequel in the ancient times, highlighting even more attention-grabbing stunts from Jaa. Here we find seven elaborately choreographed scenes delivered as extreme martial arts action with the famous elephant stampeded fight.

The final and third Ong Bak is probably the most vicious of the films. Tien is captured and more or less beaten to death and returned to his village. At the village, he learns how to practice meditation and how to come to terms with his Karma. Soon his arch enemy returns. The warrior is a fierce supernatural Demon Crow, and he challenges Tien for a final duel to death

Try not to let Tony Jaa remind you of the legendary Bruce Lee. Jaa has his own sleek, panther-like moves that are clean and elegant. Even in his fast-paced action sequences, I canít help, but admire his talent and craft. Get these movies and enjoy a martial arts adventure for real.

Audrey Hepburn Collection

audrey hepburn collection,sabrina,

Anyone who knows me knows I have said countless times that Audrey Hepburn should have made more movies. When an actress has a persona like Audrey, people take notice, and a star is born overnight. Her first America movie with Gregory Peck, directed by William Wyler, was clearly her break out role. She was a star, celebrity overnight. One could easily notice she was destined to be a movie star. Though Roman Holiday is one of my favorite Hepburn movies, it is not one of the three movies in Audrey Hepburn Collection
