DVD releases for June 5, 2012

There are three DVD releases today that interest me, none of which I have seen but will be either buying or renting very soon.

Falling Skies: The Complete First Season

Falling Skies was created by Robert Rodat and produced by Steven Spielberg. The story is set six months into a world that has been devastated by an alien invasion. Noah Wyle stars as Tom Mason, a former Boston University history professor who becomes the second-in-command of the 2nd Massachusetts Militia Regiment, a group of civilians and fighters fleeing post-apocalyptic Boston.

John Carter

Based on a series of novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs about a Civil War era veteran who is transported to Mars to aid in the wars that are existing on that planet. The movie did poorly at the box office and received mixed reviews. Many of the people I have talked to that have seen it did say it is good.


Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

A sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth and also based on another Jules Verne novel and stars Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine. A movie with a lot of special effects that is lighthearted and family friendly.

About billfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
