The chilling tale of the famed serial killer
that terrorized San Francisco for over 10 years in the 1960s and 1970s.

by one, in gruesome fashion.

Rated R for prolonged sequences of strong gruesome horror violence and gore, a rape and language.

Premonition --

This time bending thriller follows Linda Hanson,
a happy wife and mother, who loses her husband in a deadly car accident

bad dream vanishes with the following day. In a surreal twist of fate,
Linda is slipping through time, experiencing the days before and after
her husband
death in alternating succession. When her husband is alive, she seems
to be an excessively paranoid wife anxious to prevent an accident she
feels is eminent; when her husband is dead, she is a grief stricken
widow desperate to turn back time.

Rated PG-13 for some violent content, disturbing images, thematic material and brief language.

The Number 23 --

deadly, twelve young girls are found murdered. Panic breaks out as

Rated R for language.

really does have a grandson. The two newly found friends discover they

Planet Earth: The Complete Series

Extra's Season 2

The Astronaut Farmer --

From the time he was a child, Charles Farmer
had only one goal; to be an astronaut. Earning his degree in aerospace
engineering and joining the Air Force as a pilot, Farmer was a natural
for NASA's astronaut training program and was well on his way when a
family situation forced him to drop out. But Farmer was not a man to
let anything stand in the way of a dream. He spent the next decade and
every cent he had building his own rocket in a barn on his ranch in
Story, Texas, working toward the day when he could triumphantly launch
it into space. By himself. Sharing his vision are his wife Audie and
their children: daughters Sunshine and Stanley, and 15 year old
Shepard, already a budding engineer and eager to serve as "mission
control" on the big day. Even Audie's father Hal, on hand to lend moral
support, can see how his son in law's unwavering commitment has
inspired the family with a common dream. On the eve of the long
anticipated launch, an unexpected problem arises. Farmer's efforts to
secure 10,000 pounds of high grade fuel catches the attention of the
FBI and subsequently the media, who encamp in droves outside his gate.
Farmer finds himself depicted on TV screens worldwide as a renegade
hero, inspiring an outpouring of popular support, while simultaneously
drawing heavy fire from the FBI, CIA, FAA, NASA and the U.S. Military,
all of whom see him as a threat and will do anything they can think of
to shut him down. But Farmer knows this is his only chance not only to
reach his goal of breaking through the Earth's atmosphere but to
instill in his children the courage to pursue their own ideals and
never give up, no matter the odds. He will not let himself be grounded
again. Rated PG for thematic material, peril and language.

The Last Mimzy --

Two kids find a bizarre box on the beach and
are soon exhibiting signs of off the chart genius in this gently mind
blowing fantasy film. Little Emma finds a cute bunny doll in the box,
who talks to her in electronic code, and Noah learns to speak in a
frequency that lets him control spiders. The kids learn to move objects
via psycho kinesis and communicate telepathically. Naturally, their
parents wonder what is going on here. Noah
science teacher has dreams predicting all this, centered on a mandala
symbol from ancient Tibetan Buddhism, which Noah draws in class.
Michael Clarke Duncan is suitably dour as the Homeland Security
official who investigates when the kids

newfound power creates a major blackout across Seattle. Parents who
cringe at the vulgarity of many kid films will certainly appreciate
sweet natured awe towards the natural world and its inhabitants, which
comes without extraneous action or excessive musical bombast. The film
moves with a poetic grace, calling attention to environmental and
social problems without preaching, and creating the possibility for a
genuinely better world. The child actors are real naturals who are
allowed to talk and sound like kids, and car chases and explosions are
all but absent in place of genuine mystery and excitement about human
potential. It's rare to find a sci-fi film that makes the future seem
worth saving, so consider this one a true gem.

Rated PG for some thematic elements, mild peril and language.

The Secret Life of Words --

A factory worker who lives alone in a barren
apartment, wears a hearing aid, and keeps to herself with a rigorous
daily routine of identical meals, a fresh bar of soap every day, and
needlepoint work at night. While on an extended holiday in Northern
Ireland, she volunteers as a nurse, tending to a burn victim Josef
stationed on an oil rig. While Hanna coaxes him back to health, Josef,
who has suffered temporary blindness, reaches out to her urgently,
wanting to connect. As his brutish and passionate demeanor contrasts
sharply with Hanna
solemn and quiet manner, Hanna initially refuses to reveal anything
about herself, even her real name. But she soon she starts to recognize
parallels between her own isolation and that of the others on the oil
rig. She eventually grows to care for Josef and shares with him a
painfully severe secret from her past that opens wounds, and doors, for
the two strangers from different worlds to come together and help heal
one another.

The Tiger and the Snow --

Benigni is Attilio, a poet and professor at a
university in Rome who has recurring dreams in which he is to be
married to a beautiful and mysterious woman. After attending a lecture
by his friend, the visiting Iraqi poet Fuad, Attilio finally sees the
woman of his dreams in the form of Vittoria, a writer doing research
for a book on Fuad. Vittoria resists Attilio
fawning attempts to seduce her before returning to Iraq with Fuad,
where she suffers a head injury that leaves her unconscious in a bomb
damaged hospital. Fuad informs Attilio of her condition, prompting the
lovesick poet to join the Red Cross to gain entrance to war torn
Baghdad. Learning that the hospital is severely lacking in supplies,
Attilio makes his way through the equivalent of several circles of Hell
to find medicine for his dream woman encountering mine fields,
directionally challenged camels, and suspicious American soldiers.
Bizarre and bold, THE TIGER AND THE SNOW manages to once again showcase
Benigni as one of the world
most innovative comic talents. Dreamlike, yet still effectively using
moments of horror to convey a heartfelt antiwar message, the film also
finds plenty of space for his affably hyperactive presence.

Not Rated.
