    Buried Treasure Of The Week: Is OBLIVION the Best Film of 2013?

    in Film

    Remember classics such as SILENT RUNNING, THE OMEGA MAN and BLADE RUNNER?  Well, prepare yourself for OBLIVION - "the best Philip K. Dick story ... which Philip K. Dick never wrote!".  The 2013 Tom Cruise / Morgan Freeman sci-fier from writer / dir. Joseph Kosinski (TRON: LEGACY) would slyly promote itself as a typical "hero's journey" actioner, then half-way in take a sharp turn into Philip Dick territory as a mind-bending and emotionally gripping examination of identity and self-identity within the framework of a domestic partnership; even tackling the seldom touched upon theme of true love vs. fate. Modestly successful in America (but a hit overseas), we invite you to take a detailed look at one of the most intelligent (and visually stunning) genre outings since the glory days of the 1960s / 70s. Includes film audio clips, excerpts from the score, commentary by Cruise, Kosinski, composer Anthony Gonzalez (of M83), archival commentary on the "Philip K. Dick" phenomenon by directors Ridley Scott (BLADE RUNNER), Paul Verhoeven (TOTAL RECALL) and more. WARNING! - CONTAINS SPOILERS! - CEJ

    ZOE BELL: OBLIVION

    in Entertainment

    Zoe Bell is "the industry's most famous stuntwoman," and is transcending into leady lady. The beautiful New Zealand daredevil breaks down these barriers in her role opposite Morgan Freeman and Tom Cruise in the blockbuster theatrical release (April 19th) of "Oblivion." Set 60 years after an alien invasion has destroyed planet earth, "Oblivion" is an action-packed adventure thriller that pays homage to classic science fiction films of the 1970's. Zoe portrays 'Kara,' of the underground group, lead by Morgan Freeman,  of renegrades who are tracking how to save the planet. (Personal note: I saw the film and loved it.)   Best known as Quention Tarantinos go-to stuntwaman, Bell has worked in dozens of high profile thrillers, including "Kill Bill, Vols. 1 & 2;" "Inglourious Basterds;" "Django Unchained;" and the cult favorite, "Xena:Warrior Princess." With an impressively established resume of stunt work and a bold transition into starring roles, Bell has now combined her talents in her newest project, "Raze," a much-anticipated thriller, which premiers at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month. She not only stars in the film, but choreographed many of the stunts, setting the overall vision for the fight scenes, and is a producer on the film as well. The film is dubbed as "Fight Club" meets "Hostel." and co-stars Sherilyn Fenn and Rachel Nichols, with a cameo by Rosario Dawson.    Bell was born in Waiheke Island, New Zealand, to Tish, a nurse, and Andrew Bell, a doctor. She grew up on Waiheke Island in Auckland, and participated in competitive gymnastics, dance, high diving, scuba, and track and field activities, and Tae Kwon Do. Bell began her career in 1992 when her father treated a stuntman for a head injury and came home with a phone number for her to call.

    KWIBUKA: This World Rwanda's Untold Story

    in Politics Progressive

    Twenty years on from the Rwandan genocide, This World reveals evidence that challenges the accepted story of one of the most horrifying events of the late 20th century. The current president of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, has long been portrayed as the man who brought an end to the killing and rescued his country from oblivion. Now there are increasing questions about the role of Kagame's Rwandan Patriotic Front forces in the dark days of 1994 and in the 20 years since.


    The film investigates evidence of Kagame's role in the shooting down of the presidential plane that sparked the killings in 1994 and questions his claims to have ended the genocide. It also examines claims of war crimes committed by Kagame's forces and their allies in the wars in the Democratic Republic of Congo and allegations of human rights abuses in today's Rwanda.

    ParaTruth Radio Episode #36: Donald Schmitt, "Inside the Real Area 51"

    in Paranormal

    On this episode of ParaTruth Radio, we will be talking to Donald Schmitt about his book, "Inside the Real Area 51".  The true nature of what actually crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947 remains classified. Only a select few have ever had access to the truth about what became known as Area 51.  But what happened to the remnants of that crash is shrouded in even greater mystery. What began in the high desert of New Mexico ended at Wright-Patterson, an ultra top-secret Air Force base in Dayton, Ohio. The physical evidence of extraterrestrial visitation was buried deep within this nuclear stronghold.  How tragic that such seismic news should be kept from the people of the world...pieces of history, now quickly dwindling into oblivion as the last of the secret-keepers passes on.  In spite of its rich history of military service to our nation, Wright-Patterson also stands as the secret tomb of one of the greatest occurrences in recorded history. But be prepared...the real Area 51--Wright-Patterson's vault--is about to be opened.


    Donald R. Schmitt is the co-author of the best-selling Witness to Roswell. He is the former codirector of the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies, where he served as director of special investigations for 10 years. An internationally known investigative journalist and lecturer, Schmitt resides in Hubertus, Wisconsin.
