Sometimes sequels surpass their originals. Take GODFATHER PT. 2, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, THE ROAD WARRIOR (MAD MAX 2) and the THE BOURNE SURPREMACY. While perhaps not in the same status, 1990s YOUNG GUNS 2 - directed by New Zealand's Geoff Murphy (the critically acclaimed UTU and THE QUIET EARTH) and written by John Fusco (THUNDERHEART, HIDALGO, SPIRIT:STALLION OF THE CIMARRON), would outdo the "MTV Western" tone of it's predecessor to emerge as one of the better straight-up westerns of it's decade; managing to not only bring back original participants Emilio Estevez, Keifer Sutherland and Lou Diamond Phillips, but also lassoing such new luminaries as James Coburn, William Peterson, Viggo Mortensen and Scott Wilson. Includes archival audio commentary by Estevez, Fusco, Phillips, Sutherland and more; as well as excerpts from Alan Silvestri's now classic score, and (of course) Jon Bon Jovi's Oscar nominated / Grammy winning tune "Blaze Of Glory". Also dig the "side by side" comparisons of the actors alongside archival images of the true-life personalities they portray within the film.

Sam Sorbo credits her adventurous personality and an inquisitive nature for her eclectic list of accomplishments and attributes: international fashion model, real estate developer, actress, wife, mother of three, writer, philosopher, photographer, hospital volunteer, and founder of TrueFeminist.com. She speaks five languages fluently and advocates home schooling. Sam first traveled abroad with her mother on a tour of Europe that kindled her intense travel lust. She spent her senior year of high school as an exchange student in Sweden, then attended Duke University to study biomedical engineering. During college she spent a year in Paris, learning French and pursuing her interest in fashion and photography with the renowned Elite modeling agency in Paris, France. Getting cast in films like “Twenty Bucks” opposite Brendan Fraser and “The Bonfire of the Vanities”, with Bruce Willis, Melanie Griffiths, Morgan Freeman, and F. Murray Abraham, led her to move to Hollywood, where she continued with starring roles in films such as “The Crew,” (opposite Viggo Mortenson), “Fortunes of War,” (Martin Sheen), and “Ed and His Dead Mother,” (Steve Buscemi) and numerous guest-starring turns on TV, including a half-season on “Chicago Hope” with Christine Lahti and “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” during which she met and subsequently married the show’s star, Kevin Sorbo.
An author in her own right, (Gizmoe: The legendary Journeys and The Answer), Sam was a contributor to Kevin’s recent memoir, True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal and How Nearly Dying Saved My Life , which chronicles Kevin’s intense battle to recover from the three strokes he suffered shortly before the pair were married. The Sorbos currently live in Los Angeles where Sam enjoys writing and educating their three children.

It's Film Geek Central's biggest show yet! We're covering the biggest film of the decade, the current Oscar front-runner and there's five more films where they come from!
Has there ever been a film as huge as AVATAR? Not if you believe the hype, the ambition or the sheer numbers involved there hasn't. James Cameron brings us his first feature film in twelve years, a sci-fi epic filled with cutting edge special effects and (we hope) a great story to back it up!
Before seeing any trailers or info, Scott said he had a funny feeling about UP IN THE AIR, that it would be a surprise critical fave. Sure enough, it's the current front-runner to take the Best Picture Oscar in a few months. See why should listen to us?
DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE MORGANS? Okay, well then did you hear that Hugh Grant is trying to do his stammering comedic persona in another romantic comedy? Sarah Jessica Parker co-stars and we smell zaniness.
THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG is Disney's earnest attempt to keep 2-D animation alive by revisiting the formula that made them a mint in the early 1990s.
INVICTUS has Clint Eastwood directing Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon in a film about Nelson Mandela trying to bring South Africans together following the end of apartheid.
We didn't expect THE ROAD to make it down here, but it did. So, we finally get to see this Viggo Mortensen film about the end of the world, written by NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN's Cormac McCarthy.
Finally, Emily Blunt plays THE YOUNG VICTORIA in a film about the ruler's early years in power.
All this plus film news, our DVD Picks of the Week and a look at the Golden Globe nominations. We told you it was big!
Hope to see you there, Film Geeks!
