The Hunt for Red October: Invisible. Silent. Stolen.

This early 90s picture was made during the waning days of the Cold War, but it is set in a time when we were still on high alert. In 1984, the Soviet Union was still very strong, and nuclear subs on both sides of the world had to power to level cities. This is based on one of the very successful books in the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan series. In this story, Jack (Alec Baldwin) is working for the CIA as a consultant as his wife (Gates McFadden) works through her residency in London. At this time, a new wold has been put to sea out of Polijarny Inlet, and she is the Red October. Her captain is Marko Ramius……

Review: Conan the Barbarian

Conan the Barbarian is based on the book by Robert E. Howard of the same title name. It is about how one of the last descendants of Atlantis makes a name for himself. With a new release of the film slated for 2011 staring Jason Momoa as conan I figured it would be a good time to review some of the older films of this series. You might know Jason Momoa as Ronon Dex from Stargate Atlantis. In the 1982 film Conan is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger the now governor of California, at least at the time of writing this. The film opens up in the village of Conan’s birth. He is with his father learning about steel and seeing……
