Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (THE MOVIE)
Dir: Richard A. Colla, Alan J. Levi
A resourceful team of space warriors, led by Lorne Greene, Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict and Maren Jensen, takes on the evil Cylons (dig that moving red eyeball!) in this humorous and action-packed theatrical version of the hit television series. Often compared to a small-screen STAR WARS (visual effects guru John Dykstra created superb F/X for both), "Battlestar Galactica" achieved its own unique charm through a winning cast and a refreshing, tongue-in-cheek approach to the sci-fi genre.
Republic (Kit Parker),
Dir: John Auer
Filmed in the notorious red light district of Honolulu, this Auer/Fisher concoction is a delirious excursion into low-life noir. Evelyn Keyes becomes a taxi dancer to hunt for her missing G.I. husband Wendell Corey, who she believes is alive and writing hit songs in Hawaii! Little does she know he’s more than a simple songsmith - he’s also a gangster vying with Philip Ahn for control of the island’s vice rackets. Toss the sultry and statuesque Marie Windsor into the mix, and it’s pulp nirvana. Imagine film noir with a slack-key guitar soundtrack ... as good as trashy B-movies get!
Dir: Michael Curtiz, William Keighley
In what is commonly acknowledged as one of the most beautiful, spectacular early Technicolor films, swashbuckling Errol Flynn ("Welcome to Sherwood!") rescues lovely Olivia de Havilland from the evil clutches of Claude Rains and Basil Rathbone in a rousing adventure for the ages.
