  • Sieg Im Westen: Deluxe Restored Version (Victory In The West) (DVD)



    "Sieg im Westen" (Victory in the West: A Film of the Supreme Command of the German Army)

    The Third Reich s most ambitious war documentary chronicles Hitler s lightning conquest of Holland, Belgium, and France in the spring of 1940. The six week campaign, marked by continuous combat and spectacular German victories, established the blitzkrieg as a bold strategy that revolutionized warfare. Before the offensive, the German high command deployed camera teams of hand picked professionals among various army groups poised to attack. Motorized and permitted unlimited access to the front, the correspondents recorded the onslaught from the perspective of the common soldier. Editors combined this material with the best scenes from the newsreels and captured Allied footage to produce an authentic and riveting cinematic record of the campaign. The novel use of animated maps throughout the feature balances the soldier s eye view of battle with the strategic progress of military operations. Herbert Windt, renowned for elaborate orchestral compositions for the Riefenstahl epics Triumph des Willens and Olympia, provided an original score for the film. The IHF program includes "Panzer Greifen An", a rare wartime featurette introduced by General Heinz Guderian covering the breakthrough at Sedan. An IHF audio slide show presents lesser known details about the west campaign and the making of Sieg im Westen.

  • From Here to Eternity [Blu-ray]



    In this landmark film, passion and tragedy collide on a military base as a fateful day in December 1941 draws near. Private Prewitt (Montgomery Clift) is a soldier and former boxer being manipulated by his superior and peers. His friend Maggio (Frank Sinatra) tries to help him but has his own troubles. Sergeant Warden (Burt Lancaster) and Karen Holmes (Deborah Kerr) tread on dangerous ground as lovers in an illicit affair. Each of their lives will be changed when their stories culminate in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Winner of eight Oscars(r), including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting awards for Sinatra in a career-defining role and for Donna Reed as a not-so-wholesome club hostess.Here's a model for adapting a novel into a movie. The bestseller by James Jones, a frank and hard-hitting look at military life, could not possibly be made into a film in 1953 without considerably altering its length and bold subject matter. Yet screenwriter Daniel Taradash and director Fred Zinnemann (both of whom won Oscars for their work) pared it down and cleaned it up, without losing the essential texture of Jones's tapestry. The setting is an army base in Hawaii in 1941. Montgomery Clift, in a superb performance, plays a bugler who refuses to fight for the company boxing team; he has reasons for giving up the sport. His refusal results in harsh treatment from the company commander, whose bored wife (Deborah Kerr) is having an affair with the tough-but-fair sergeant (Burt Lancaster). You remember--the scene with the two of them embracing on the beach, as the surf crashes in. The supporting players are as good as the leads: Frank Sinatra and Donna Reed won Oscars (and Sinatra revitalized his entire career), and Ernest Borgnine entered the gallery of all-time movie villains, as the stockade sergeant who makes Sinatra miserable. Zinnemann's work is efficient but also evocative, capturing the time and place beautifully, the tropical breezes as well as the lazy prewar indulgence. This one is deservedly a classic. --Robert Horton Category:

  • MMA: Sambo Vol. 2 by Hervé Gheldman - Mixed Martial Arts Fight Techniques



    Instructor Hervé Gheldman explains this DVD, ''Everyone talks about MMA...but MMA is relatively new. A few individuals begin to distinguish in their personality and techniques, but there is still much to do. With this DVD series I wanted to share simple techniques taken from Sambo and achievable in MMA. Sambo, created in the former USSR for the police and the army, is a comprehensive discipline, made to fit all forms of combat and all situations. I discovered it years ago, with my professor Oleg Taktarov, Sambo champion and also winner of the UFC VI. He was one of the first to highlight Sambo in all its forms. Today, I spread it and I train fighters in Sambo, MMA, Pankration and Shooto. Thanks to these techniques, I have checked the efficiency of Sambo, and here is the result of this work in this second volume. A key strength of Sambo is its logic in feet-fists-ground sequences, chokes, and all the techniques you need to learn to get you started in MMA. So good work and see you soon on the mat!''

    Instructor Hervé Gheldman: National Technical Director and international expert. Russia Master Sport Sambo and martial artist for over 40 years, Hervé has developed his Sambo system after many years of competition - a world champion title on his resume - and courses around the world. He is a police and military expert, and regularly visits Special Forces in their training center.

  • The Tomorrow People - Set 1



    Welcome to the next stage of human evolution. Not your everyday Homo sapiens, the Tomorrow People are Homo superiors, children with amazing powers--here in our world TODAY. Originally broadcast in the 1970s, THE TOMORROW PEOPLE introduced British television viewers to an instant cult classic in Sci-Fi adventuring. Imagine young Stephen's surprise when he learns he is actually one of the Tomorrow People, teenagers with powers of telekinesis, teleportation (called jaunting), and telepathy. Headquartered in a secret underground Lab and protected by the supercomputer Tim, the Tomorrow People look for the emergence of more of their kind and battle evil forces from the farthest reaches of space and time. Thought provoking, action packed, and creatively produced, this edition of THE TOMORROW PEOPLE contains all twenty-six episodes from the series' first two seasons on DVD for the first time. DVD Features: Commentary with Stars Nicholas Young, Peter Vaughn-Clarke, and Sammie Winmill on "The Slaves of Jedikiah"; Cast Biographies; Interactive Menu; Scene Selection

    This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

    Thames Television's The Tomorrow People (1973-79) was a fondly remembered U.K. science fiction TV series that drew in teen and adult audiences on both sides of the Atlantic with its thought-provoking premise and cliffhanger stories; the show's first two seasons make their American DVD debut in an impressive four-disc collection. For any kid struggling with growing pains, the show provided an irresistible hook: Stephen Jameson (Peter Vaughn-Clarke) discovers that he is no average teen, but one of the "Tomorrow People," a select group of youths with extraordinary powers who protect Earth from a host of threats from space and time.

    Series creator Roger Price (later the man behind You Can't Do That on Television and other Canadian programming shown on Nickelodeon, where the Tomorrow People also aired in the '80s) penned the six serialized stories compiled here (three are co-written with Brian Finch), which pit the Tomorrow People against a shape-shifting robot ("Slaves of Jedikiah" and "The Medusa Strain," the latter featuring an appearance by David "Darth Vader" Prowse), an evil military organization ("The Doomsday Men"), and a villain who attempts to change the course of history ("A Rift in Time"). Modern teens might guffaw over the show's primitive special effects, but the stories are engaging and exciting enough to win over even diehard CGI fans; older viewers should appreciate the care with which this program has been preserved on DVD. All 26 episodes of the first and second season are presented here, with cast members Vaughn-Clarke, Nicholas Young (who played John), and Sammie Winmill (Carol) contributing commentary on "Slaves of Jedikiah." Bios for the cast round out the extras on this entertaining collection. --Paul Gaita Directed by: Roger Damon Price Actors: Nicholas Young, Philip Gilbert, Elizabeth Adare, Category:

  • Fantastic Voyage [Blu-ray]



    Prepare to journey into the deepest reaches of space...inner space! Stephen Boyd, Donald Pleasence, and Raquel Welch in her feature-film debut, star in 'one of the most ingenious, inventive, imaginative, science fiction films Hollywood has ever produced' (Citizen-News).2001: A Space Odyssey took the world on a mind-bending trip to outer space, but Fantastic Voyage is the original psychedelic inner-space adventure. When a brilliant scientist falls into a coma with an inoperable blood clot in the brain, a surgical team embarks on a top-secret journey to the center of the mind in a high-tech military submarine shrunk to microbial dimensions. Stephen Boyd stars as a colorless commander sent to keep an eye on things (though his eyes stay mostly on shapely medical assistant Raquel Welch), while Donald Pleasance is suitably twitchy as the claustrophobic medical consultant. The science is shaky at best, but the imaginative spectacle is marvelous: scuba-diving surgeons battle white blood cells, tap the lungs to replenish the oxygen supply, and shoot the aorta like daredevil surfers. The film took home a well-deserved Oscar for Best Visual Effects. Director Richard Fleischer, who turned Disney's 1954 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea into one of the most riveting submarine adventures of all time, creates a picture so taut with cold-war tensions and cloak-and-dagger secrecy that niggling scientific contradictions (such as, how do miniaturized humans breathe full-sized air molecules?) seem moot. --Sean Axmaker Category:

  • Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail [Blu-ray]



    Deadly assassin-turned-maid Roberta returns to the criminal's paradise of Roanapur, dead set on revenge - no matter the cost. In a backdrop of violent chaos, the smugglers of the Lagoon Company team up with Roberta's employer to save her... or at least to stop her bloody rampage.The five-part OVA Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail (2010) picks up where the last TV series--Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage--left off. Roberta, a maid who suggests the Terminator in long braids, goes on a rampage to avenge the death of Lovelace, her former employer. His assassination somehow involved the CIA, the NSA, Asian and South American drug cartels, and, although the Lovelace family is supposed to be from Venezuela, the Colombian revolutionary group FARC. Flying bullets, knives, explosives, blood, and four-letter words take up so much screen time, there's little left for character development or a coherent narrative. Naturally, the combined forces of the CIA, NSA, and US military don't stand a chance against a pill-popping maid who packs more heat than the North Korean army (including an 18th-century flintlock). Fortunately the mercenary/pirate quartet of Black Lagoon is on the scene. The fragmentary story line includes a nasty anti-American tone: a Cuban military officer comments, "Some American heads would make nice souvenirs." But there's plenty of material to offend pretty much anyone, including a chain-smoking nun, a heroin addict, and a Chinese assassin who speaks a brand of pidgin English that would embarrass Charlie Chan. Leading the charge is potty-mouthed Revy, who calls a dying Hispanic soldier "beaner" before shooting him in cold blood. Black Lagoon isn't the most violent series in the history of anime, but its gleefully sadistic tone makes the nonstop slaughter more repugnant. The endless string of blood and profanity would probably earn Roberta's Blood Trail an X rating if it were released theatrically. (Rated TV MA; more appropriate for viewers over 18: graphic violence, violence against women, extensive profanity, grotesque imagery, torture, alcohol, drug and tobacco use, racial slurs, offensive ethnic stereotypes, offensive religious imagery, sexual situations) --Charles Solomon

  • Missions That Changed the War: Germany's Last Ace



    Narrated by Gary Sinise

    As seen on the Military Channel

    “Fascinating” —Daily Mail (U.K.)

    After his defeat in the Battle of Britain, Adolf Hitler turned east and unleashed his blitzkrieg tactics on the Soviet Union. When he failed to capture Moscow or secure a Russian surrender, Germany faced a daunting scenario—a two-front war. As the Soviets pushed the Nazis back across the steppes, the RAF and the U.S. Eighth Air Force unleashed a sustained bombing campaign in the West.

    In this riveting documentary, narrator Gary Sinise (Apollo 13, CSI: NY, Forrest Gump) tells the story of three men who played decisive roles in the aerial battles over Germany: Lt. Col. Hubert Zemke, Lt. Robert Rankin, and Luftwaffe squadron commander Günther Rall. Through original footage, expert military analyses, and never-before-seen interviews with the participants, Germany’s Last Ace revisits the events of May 12, 1944, which Nazi armaments minister Albert Speer considered the day that Germany lost the war.

  • Carmen Jones [Blu-ray]



    Few actresses have captivated the camera as powerfully as Dorothy Dandridge in Carmen Jones. Her polished beauty plays in irresistible contrast to her title character's leonine sexuality and fluid emotions; a man can't decide from moment to moment if he wants to save her from doom, build her a castle, or never let her out of bed. Of course, that's the problem with the boys in this semi-experimental adaptation of Bizet's opera, Carmen. Straight-arrow Joe (a strapping Harry Belafonte), an obedient corporal on a Southern military base during World War II, is all set to go to flight school and marry his hometown sweetie, Cindy Lou (Olga James), when his troublemaking sergeant orders him to accompany Carmen to a civilian court. In short order, Joe is swept up in Carmen's carnal anarchy and her craving for release from lousy options in life. An impulsive act of violence ensures that Joe's future is gone forever, putting Carmen in the difficult position of destroying their relationship to save him. Oscar Hammerstein II took Bizet's music in 1943 and rewrote the book and lyrics. The result is largely a smashing success with a few missteps (the bullfighter in Bizet's piece becomes a heavyweight boxer here, which breaks up a certain grace in the story) and a couple of perfect stretches (the long prelude to Carmen and Joe's first embrace, set on Carmen's home turf). Despite the fact that both Dandridge and Belafonte were singers, their vocal performances were dubbed by LeVern Hutcherson and Marilyn Horne. (Yes, it is a little disconcerting to hear another voice come out of the more familiar Belafonte's mouth.) Otto Preminger directed with his usual eye on economy of action and production, as the numerous musical numbers tend to be shot in lengthy, single, carefully choreographed takes. The result can be a little visually static at times, but the passion behind the singing pulls everything through. --Tom Keogh Category:

  • Latino Americans



    Latino Americans is the first major documentary series for television to chronicle the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos, who have for the past 500-plus years helped shape what is today the United States and have become, with more than 50 million people, the largest minority group in the U.S. The series chronicles Latinos in the United States from the 1500's to present day. It is a story of people, politics, and culture, intersecting with much that is central to the history of the United States while also going to places where standard U.S. histories do not tend to tread. Latino Americans relies on historical accounts and personal experiences to vividly tell the stories of early settlement, conquest and immigration; of tradition and reinvention; and of anguish and celebration, from the millions of people who come to the U.S. from Mexico, Spain, Puerto Rico, and countries in Central and South America. Latino Americans is driven by the human dramas of individuals' struggles and triumphs, successes and disappointments, featuring interviews with close to 100 Latinos from the worlds of politics, business, military, academia, literature, and pop culture, as well as deeply personal portraits of Latinos who lived through key chapters in American history. LATINO AMERICANS is the story of the gradual construction of a new American identity that connects and empowers millions of people today. Category:

  • Kilometre Zero (Amazon.com Exclusive)



    Kilometre Zero (Amazon.com Exclusive)

    A story of ethnic conflict between Kurds and Iraqis in the context of the war between Iraq and Iran in the 1980s. The central story of the film is set at a time when Kurds were conscripted to serve in the Iraqi army, where they were brutally abused, as a despised minority in Saddam Hussein's military.

    Kilometre Zero pairs a Kurdish soldier, under orders to return the body of a dead soldier to his family, with an Iraqi taxi driver who will drive them cross-country to the dead soldier's home. Scenes between the men, in the close quarters of their truck, are interwoven with scenes of often comic incompetence of Iraqi soldiers and officers.

    "Heartbreaking and hilarious in equal measure, Saleem's powerful film, shot on location in Iraqi Kurdistan, is a poignant account of the Kurdish people's struggle for liberation and equality."
    –Ali Jaafar, BFI 50th London Film Festival Archives

    "A story of deep visions rendered with an ironic eye for the humor to be found even in adversity." –BBC

  • Ordinary People (Amazon.com Exclusive)



    Ordinary People (Amazon.com Exclusive)

    On a seemingly average day, a busload of young soldiers is sent to a remote location in the countryside and given a macabre task: the execution of a number of civilians. Dzoni, a green recruit, initially objects, but as he moves from one killing to the next, he is swept up by the spectre of military authority, and quickly becomes desensitized by the apparently routine nature of his task. As he nears the end of his assignment, the quiet horror of the day slowly begins to affect him, forcing a painful reconciliation with his actions.

    Set in an unspecified time of conflict in the Balkans, director Vladimir Perisic's highly attuned and unsentimental lens captures the psychological toll of war on its participants, and the universal struggle of all soldiers to reconcile morality with action.

    "Serbian writer/director Vladimir Perisic's debut feature is quietly devastating; a slow-burning fuse, that ends with an implosion of the heart and mind...I'm so glad to have caught this filmmaker's debut feature." -The Brag

  • Day Of The Dead (Collector's Edition) [Blu-ray]



    In this the third film in the continuing saga of the undead from writer/director George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, Survival of the Dead), a small group of scientists and soldiers have taken refuge in an underground missile silo where they struggle to control the flesh-eating horror that walks the earth above. But will the final battle for the future of the human race be fought among the living or have they forever unleashed the hunger of the dead? Lori Cardille, Joe Pilato and Richard Liberty star in this controversial classic with groundbreaking gore effects by Tom Savini.Chapter three of George Romero's mighty zombie trilogy has big footsteps to follow. Night of the Living Dead was a classic that revitalized a certain corner of the cinema, and Dawn of the Dead was nothing short of epic. Day of the Dead, however, has always been regarded as a comedown compared to those twin peaks--and perhaps it is. But on its own terms, this is an awfully effective horror movie, made with Romero's customary social satire and cinematic vigor--when a "retrained" zombie responds to the "Ode to Joy," the film is in genuinely haunting territory. The story is set inside a sunken military complex, where Army and medical staff, supposedly working on a solution to the zombie problem, are going crazy (strongly foreshadowing the final act of 28 Days Later). Tom Savini's makeup effects could make even hardcore gore fans tear off their own heads in amazement. --Robert Horton Directed by: George A.

  • The Honourable Paul Hellyer - UFOs Are As Real As Airplanes Flying Overhead



    The Right Honorable Paul Hellyer is former Canadian Minister of Defence. This lecture was filmed at "Look To The Stars", 2013 Florida UFO Symposium brought to you by Starworks USA.

    On 3 June 1967, Hellyer flew in by helicopter to officially inaugurate an Unidentified flying object landing pad in St. Paul, Alberta. The town had built the landing pad as its Canadian Centennial celebration project, and as a symbol of keeping space free from human warfare. The sign beside the pad reads:

    “The area under the World’s First UFO Landing Pad was designated international by the Town of St. Paul as a symbol of our faith that mankind will maintain the outer universe free from national wars and strife. That future travel in space will be safe for all intergalactic beings, all visitors from earth or otherwise are welcome to this territory and to the Town of St. Paul.

    Throughout his life, Hellyer has been opposed to the weaponization of space. He supports the Space Preservation Treaty to ban space weapons.

    In early September 2005, Hellyer made headlines by publicly announcing that he believed in UFOs. On 25 September 2005, he was an invited speaker at an exopolitics conference in Toronto, where he told the audience that he had seen a UFO one night with his late wife and some friends. He said that, although he had discounted the experience at the time, he had kept an open mind to it. He said that he started taking the issue much more seriously after watching ABC’s Peter Jennings’ UFO special in February 2005.

    Watching Jennings’ UFO special prompted Hellyer to finally read U.S. Army Colonel Philip J. Corso’s book The Day After Roswell, about the Roswell UFO Incident, which had been sitting on his shelf for some time. Hellyer told the Toronto audience that he later spoke to a retired U.S. Air Force general, who confirmed the accuracy of the information in the book. In November 2005, he accused U.S. President George W. Bush of plotting an “Intergalactic War”. The former defence minister told an audience at the University of Toronto:

    “The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning…The Bush Administration has finally agreed to let the military build a forward base on the moon, which will put them in a better position to keep track of the goings and comings of the visitors from space, and to shoot at them, if they so decide.”

    Hellyer told the audience that in December 2004, he had enjoyed reading and had endorsed a book by Alfred Webre entitled “Exopolitics – Politics, Government and Law in the Universe”. He ended his 30 minute historical talk with a standing ovation by stating:

    “To turn us in the direction of re-unification with the rest of creation the author is proposing a “Decade of Contact” – an “era of openness, public hearings, publicly funded research, and education about extraterrestrial reality”.”

    In 2007, the Ottawa Citizen reported that Hellyer is demanding that world governments disclose alien technology that could be used to solve the problem of climate change:

    “I would like to see what (alien) technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation…that could be a way to save our planet…We need to persuade governments to come clean on what they know. Some of us suspect they know quite a lot, and it might be enough to save our planet if applied quickly enough.”
