  • Soldiers of Conscience - DVD

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Oct 27, 2009

    Filmmakers Gary Weimberg and Catherine Ryan take an extensive look at the conscientious objector experience as related to the war in Iraq in this documentary that gives American soldiers from all walks of life the opportunity to speak openly and honestly about their moral concerns regarding their military duties. In the United States, every citizen has the right to abstain from armed combat on the grounds by citing religious or ethical conflict. But these aren't the only people who wrestle with their conscience over killing, because as Weimberg and Ryan reveal, even the soldiers sent to fight on the battlefield often fail to follow through on their orders when the time comes to pull the trigger. By examining extensive footage of military boot camp training techniques and listening to conversations with military personnel, the viewer becomes aware of the methods implemented by the armed forces to strip soldiers of their confidence in favor of building a more effective military. West Point graduates, experienced drill sergeants, Abu Ghraib interrogators, and low-ranking reservists alike all weight in with their deepest moral concerns regarding the duties that the military expects them to perform when deployed to the front lines. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

    Barry Levinson directed this $100+ million adaptation of Michael Crichton's science fiction novel about the investigation of a half-mile-long spacecraft sitting on the South Pacific ocean floor. Government functionary Barnes (Peter Coyote) assembles a crack scientific team -- psychologist Dr. Norman Goodman (Dustin Hoffman), who wrote a presidential report on alien contact; biochemist Beth Halperin (Sharon Stone), once involved romantically with Goodman; mathematician Harry Adams (Samuel L. Jackson); and astrophysicist Ted Fielding (Liev Schreiber). After descending a thousand feet, they set up housekeeping at their underwater Habitat base, suit up, and enter the craft, finding evidence that it's a U.S. ship from the future. However, the craft's cargo of a shimmering, golden sphere is definitely alien. After Harry contrives to enter the sphere, Norman notes his odd behavior. When the Habitat computer system receives an email message from the sphere ("I am happy"), it's not long before the messages from this entity take a threatening turn ("I will kill you all"), triggering fears to surface along with violent attacks to the Habitat. The film is divided into chapters, such as "The Ride Down," "The First Exchange," and "The Monster." Shot on soundstages at the abandoned Mare Island Naval Shipyard (Vallejo, California), the effects combine animation, miniatures, prosthetics, animatronics, and digital images. Ed Asner reads the Sphere audiobook. ~ Bhob Stewart, All Movie Guide

    Includes - Star Trek: The Man Trap (1966) Joan of Arcadia: Pilot (2003) The 4400: Pilot (2004) Medium: Pilot (2005) Star Trek: The Man Trap The Starship Enterprise makes a routine call at the arid, uninhabited planet M-113 in order for Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley) to give a required annual medical check-up of the husband-and-wife team of archeologists working there. One seemingly minor complication is that Nancy Crater (Jeanne Bal), the wife, was once involved romantically with McCoy. Captain Kirk and Dr. McCoy meet with an irrationally hostile reception from Robert Crater (Alfred Ryder), however, and then members of the crew start turning up dead from unknown causes. Ultimately, it's determined that they were killed by a sudden and medically inexplicable loss of all the salt from their bodies. The mystery deepens as some crew members find themselves approached by mysteriously compelling strangers, and the planet below is short one of its two inhabitants. Eventually, Kirk and Spock determine that their adversary is the last native inhabitant of the planet, a kind of salt "vampire" that has the ability to alter its appearance to the shape of whoever its victim most wants to see. Needless to say, finding the vampire aboard the ship is easier said than done. Its shape-shifting ability has also allowed it to temporarily incapacitate McCoy, whose ignorance of events nearly costs Kirk his life. ~ Bruce Eder, All Movie Guide Joan of Arcadia: Pilot No synopsis available.
