An untold chapter in the Mass Effect saga, following the early career of Alliance Marine, James Vega, as he leads a squad of elite special forces into battle against a mysterious alien threat known as The Collectors. Stationed at a colony in a remote star system, Vega and his troops must protect the inhabitants from an invasion of the deadly insectoid warriors determined to collect the population for unknown purposes. Soon after the attack, Vega's commanding officer falls in battle, forcing the young officer to embrace the responsibility of leadership for the colony's survival. Having idolized Earth's greatest hero and warrior, Commander Shepard (the central character in the Mass Effect video games), the young and idealistic Vega must now make life and the death decisions that will effect not only the lives of his squad, but the lives of every person in the colony - all of whom he has sworn to protect...

Van R (ru) wrote: Director Don E. FauntLeRoy(TM)s slam-bang action thriller Today You Die? is the first of three straight-to-video releases that he helmed with aikido star Steven Seagal. FauntLeRoy and Seagal reunited for The Mercenary? and Urban Justice.? Today You Die? qualifies as a fair formulaic crime saga about greed, betrayal, and the theft of $20-million. Set primarily in Las Vegas, Today You Die? follows our hero after he survives not only a disastrous car chase on the strip but also a stint in prison as he tries to eliminate a gallery of villains who do their damnedest to scare him into revealing the whereabouts of the loot. Like most straight-to-video Seagal outings, Today You Die? unfolds like a gravity-defying fantasy and our indestructible hero finds himself getting out of one tough scrap after another with groups of trigger happy gunmen. You can tell that Seagal made this movie after his theatrical run days ran out. The paunchy Under Siege? star lets his stunt double help him out in various action scenes, most obviously when he seizes an overhead lighting fixture and propels his bulk over a table to knock a henchman head over heels during a fight scene. FauntLeRoy appropriates several scenes from Sidney J. Furie(TM)s Top of the World? for a careening auto chase down the strip with Seagal behind the wheel of an armored truck that the police are pursuing. The prison sequence consists of many scenes derived from director Walter Hill(TM)s Undisputed? with Wesley Snipes and Ving Rhames about boxing in prison. The scenes when Seagal acts improbably like a cat burglar who robs from the rich to give to the poor came from director Sheldon Lettich(TM)s thriller The Order? with Jean-Claude Van Damme. The amazing thing about this stock footage is that FauntLeRoy does such as slick job of seamlessly making it a part of Today You Die.? Incidentally, the film draws its title from a line that Seagal(TM)s co-star Anthony 'Treach' Criss utters near the end when he has a face-to-face showdown with another villain who double-crossed Seagal in this tolerably entertaining shoot(TM)em up. Mind you, FauntLeRoy and company shameless steal the scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark? when Indy shot a native after he displayed his wizardry with swords rather than take the man on in his own element. Similarly, one of the villain(TM)s henchmen waltzes up to Seagal with intent to kill and performs a back flip and some martial arts moves before he closes in for the kill. Nonchalantly, Seagal whips out his automatic pistol and plugs the poor fool. As the film opens, our hero(TM)s African-American wife, Jada (Mari Morrow of National Security?), has a bad dream about visiting a tarot dealer and see the dealer turn up the Death card. She sees somebody pull a gun on her husband, Harlan Banks (Steven Seagal of The Glimmer Man?), and then she awakens to find herself in bed with Harlan. She recounts her dream and begs Harlan to reconsider going out and stealing. Harlan dismisses her dream. Dreams are symbolic. They don(TM)t often mean what you see.? The next time that we see Harlan, he is sliding down a wire on a contraption that allows him to go from one skyscraper to another. He enters an apartment in the skyscraper and finds himself in the residence of a scumbag narcotics dealer. No sooner has Harlan rifled the safe and looted it of its contents: sheaves of greenbacks and jewelry galore than he finds himself face-to-face with two thugs. Evidently, when Harlan bypassed the security alarms, these two found a way into the residence. Harlan explains that he robs only to give the loot to the poor. They suggest that he treat them like the poor. Harlan agrees and then reverses the shotgun that the thug had been holding and shoots both the thug and his back-up. The scene illustrates a point that often occurs in most Seagal movies: never shove a gun into our hero(TM)s snout because he will take it away from you as easily as taking ice cream from a baby. The next time that we see Harlan he accepts a legitimate job to drive an armored car from a crook named Max Stevens (Kevin Tighe of Eight Men Out?) who is planning a crime. Too late Harlan learns that he is driving the armored car for a gunman, Bruno (Robert Miano of Fast & Furious?), and now the bullets really start to fly and here come the cops. The chase through Las Vegas that results in the deaths of three cops sees Harlan get away long enough to lay Bruno on the sidewalk and disappear with the armored car. Later, the police find Harlan on the sidewalk, too, and they arrest him. The filmmakers bypass length courtroom scenes and Harlan finds himself convicted and bussed off to a maximum security prison in the middle of nowhere. The thugs are furious because they have lost $20-million and Max stages his own death. Eventually, Harlan breaks out of prison the same way Charles Bronson broke into prison in Breakout.? They fly off in a helicopter and Seagal wipes out the villains.If you look closely, you can see a much younger Chloe Moretz, the future star of Kick Ass,? as the little girl at a charity hospital on the block. Furthermore, Seagal(TM)s protagonist makes short work of former two-time UFC Light-Heavyweight champion and three-time UFC Heavyweight champion Randy Couture who plays a thug(TM)s front door henchman. Overall, despite the obvious use of his stunt double and the stock footage, Today You Die? should satisfy undiscriminating Seagal fans in search of their fix. Freshman scenarist Kevin Moore and Point of Impact? scribe Les Weldon have taken Octopus 2: River of Fear? writer Danny Lerner(TM)s story and turned it into a noisy buddy picture that eliminates all the dull scenes, including some important exposition, so that Today You Die? doesn(TM)t wear out its welcome during its 90 running time.

Jens T (us) wrote: Sergei Parajanov was born 1924 in Georgia to armenian parents. All his life he tried not to give into the cultural repression by the Soviet Russia. Color of Pomegranates is his heritage and his legacy. Color of Pomegranates is not a plot driven movie, it's pure symbolism. Some people might find it long, pointless and borring. Or maybe you are one of those who really can appreciate the art and the symbolism that this picture has to offer. I think, If you are not familiar with armenian culture, this picture is like diving into a new world, and you will be amazed. Most of the symbolism in this film, is mostly about christianity, and how important it is to the armenian people, mostly because Armenia was the first nation to adopt christianity as a state religion. Color of Pomegranates is a reverence picture. You just have to let go of the idea about plot, and just take this movie for what it is. Thumbs Up.
Austin R (fr) wrote: Had never heard of it before. I saw Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, and I wanted to see it. Both actors give great at performances, one of McQueen's best (but apparently forgotten). The score was beautiful, but I think what brought this film down for me was the pacing. Moments that would seem tense sometimes would lull. Another (great escape) story starring McQueen, but I think this one could do for a redo.
Dann M (kr) wrote: A terrible attempt to revive a classic Disney series, Race to Witch Mountain is garbage. The story follows a Las Vegas taxi driver who picks up two unusual teenagers who are on the run from the government. The Rock and AnnaSophia Robb bring a certain charisma to their roles, but Alexander Ludwig is toxic to the film. And the writing is awful; particularly the dialog. Additionally, the series continuity is thrown out in favor of a mash up of a bunch of cheesy sci-fi tropes. Race to Witch Mountain is poorly made and has none of the charm of the original films.
