Thus a tough battle lies ahead for scientists and conservationists trying to maintain what is left of native species. National Geographic: Hawaii - Strangers in Paradise follows several of the groups trying to save Hawaii from its invaders. The program introduces several of the endangered plants and animals, shows how they live, and discusses the underlying causes of population decline. ~ Ed Atkinson, All Movie Guide National Geographic: Everglades - Secrets of the Swamp What at first appears to be a myriad of angry alligators floating in the murky waters of the Everglades, waiting to pounce on unsuspecting tourists, is in fact a delicate ecosystem vital to the environment of South Florida. Brought to video by National Geographic, this video is a swamp boat ride through the salty mangrove and saw-grass prairies to a secret place of survival. Between the sediments of silt and sand, wonderful creatures reside, such as the West Indian Manatee, the American White Pelican, the Roseate Spoonbill, and the rarest and most elusive native animal of the region -- the Florida Panther. ~ C.

It is widely known and accepted that the United States government systematically classifies as "secret" a massive number of documents each year. This very occurrence raises penetrating key questions about the viability or danger of the government's withholding of such information from the general public. With their documentary Secrecy, Peter Galison and Robb Moss weigh the pros and the cons of this phenomenon; they illustrate the ways in which non-disclosure can often serve as an asset (as in the case of a 1983 mass murder that could have been prevented via greater secrecy), including counterterrorist maneuvers. At the same time, Moss and Galison reflect at length on the dangers of this process -- the ways in which the obfuscation of public knowledge can slow or prevent transnational agreements, create paranoia, and lead to incredible violations of personal privacy. As such, the film meditates on that difficult gray area that lies sandwiched in between democracy and national safety, and asks where the rights of the general populace begin and end. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide

The "Ahab" of the proceedings is Archangel, who has embarked upon an obsessive mission to destroy the immortal mutant Apocalypse. Rogue joins Archangel in his quest, while the other X-Men pursue an alternate strategy with the same goal. Alas, Archangel's stubborn single-mindedness could end up destroying everyone, hero and villain alike. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Savage Land, Strange Heart, Part One In the first half of the two-part X-Men adventure "Savage Land, Strange Heart," we are introduced to the half-human, half-pterodactyl Sauron. Under the spell of high priestess Zaladane, Sauron kidnaps Storm and bundles her off to Savage Land. Without the other X-Men to control her, Storm prepares to unleash the full fury of her energy to prevent Zaladane from sapping her life forces. Meanwhile, Storm's colleagues have plenty of trouble on their own -- namely, a fearsome dinosaur-like creature called The Garokk. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Savage Land, Strange Heart, Part Two In the second half of the two-part X-Men adventure "Savage Land, Strange Heart," Storm has unleashed the full force of her inner powers -- and she truly enjoys the rush! But there are consequences to her euphoria: Her unbridled strength has revitalized the deadly "stone spirit" Garokk. Now he threatens to increase his power by fusing with the volcanic forces of Savage Island. The X-Men, assisted by the Fall People, must put an end to Garokk's reign of terror. But this means that they must also do battle against their former comrade Storm, thereby setting the stage for one of the series' customary Crises of Loyalty. "Savage Land, Strange Heart" was originally broadcast during X-Men's 1994-95 season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Dark Phoenix "Dark Phoenix" was an appropriate title for the third chapter of X-Men's "Dark Phoenix" saga. The titular Phoenix has threatened to destroy the X-Men if they force him to give up possession of Jean Grey. He forces Jean to fly to the D'har Star System for the purpose of regenerating her strength. But the journey ends disastrously when an out-of-control Jean destroys the entire system. Reluctantly, the X-Men align themselves with Shi'ar empress Lilandre, who has declared that, in her present state, Jean must be liquidated for the good of the Universe. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Cold Comfort This episode marked the return of former X-Man Bobby Drake, a.k.a. the freeze-inducing Iceman (who'd previously popped up as a regular on another Marvel cartoon series, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. The downside is that Iceman has apparently gone bad, breaking into a secret government installation and wreaking all sorts of havoc. Rescued from the authorities, he is brought to Professor X to explain himself -- but only the Beast, a.k.a. Dr. McCoy, knows the real motivation for his colleague's alleged crime. "Cold Comfort" was originally broadcast during X-Men's 1994-95 season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Weapon X, Lies and Videotape This final episode of X-Men's 1994-95 season begins as Wolverine is mysteriously unhinged by the information imparted in a postcard. Beast wants to know why his friend has gone off the deep end, so he takes Wolverine to the Weapon X lab where he was first transformed into a mutant. Also converging on the lab are Sabretooth, Maverick and Silver Fox, who likewise had been test subjects

Includes:Lady of Burlesque (1943) The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946) Too Late for Tears (1949) Blonde Ice (1949) Key Man (1954) Please Murder Me (1956) Lady of Burlesque Barbara Stanwyck shines in her second portrayal of a showgirl in less than two years (the first was in Howard Hawks' Ball of Fire in 1941). In Lady of Burlesque -- which, at times, has a Hawksian edge to the dialogue -- she portrays Dixie Daisy, a striptease artist at a Broadway theater in New York at the end of the 1930s. In the course of fending off the unwanted advances of brash comic Biff Brannigan (Michael O'Shea), with whom she is teamed in several numbers, and staying clear of the dressing room feuds of her fellow dancers -- including a very nasty dispute between Dolly Baxter (Gloria Dickson) and Lolita La Verne (Victoria Faust) -- she finds herself up to her neck in trouble when one of the women is found strangled with her own G-string. The police don't know what to make of it, especially as the victim was already dying of a fatal dose of poison, which means that there are two murderers somewhere in the theater; and when a second woman turns up strangled inside a prop that Dixie was supposed to be hiding in onstage, she looks like a good suspect. Between the backstage comedy-drama, and the songs, dances, and on-stage comic routines, with the police breathing down both their necks at different times, Dixie and Biff manage to solve the mystery and find each other in this briskly paced, funny, yet amazingly gritty comedy-thriller. Lady of Burlesque was allowed to fall out of copyright in 1971, and since then it was seen in substandard editions until the May 2001 DVD release from Image Entertainment. ~ Bruce Eder, All Movie Guide The Strange Love of Martha Ivers In The Strange Love of Martha Ivers, relationships formed in childhood lead to murder and obsessive love. The wealthy Martha Ivers (Barbara Stanwyck) is the prime mover of the small Pennsylvania town of Iverston. Martha lives in a huge mansion with her DA husband, Walter O'Neil (Kirk Douglas), an alcoholic weakling. No one knows just why Martha and Walter tolerate one another....but Sam Masterson (Van Heflin), an Iverstown boy who returns to town, may just have a clue. At least that's what Martha thinks when Sam asks Walter to intervene in the case of Toni Marachek (Lizabeth Scott), who has been unjustly imprisoned. It seems that, as a young boy, Sam was in the vicinity when Martha's rich aunt (Judith Anderson) met with her untimely demise. What does Sam know? And what dark, horrible secret binds Martha and Walter together? Directed by Lewis Milestone, and based on John Patrick's Oscar-nominated original story, Love Lies Bleeding, The Strange Love of Martha Ivers creates in Martha a unique and interesting, driven, obsessed, and spoiled character, but one not without sympathy. Barbara Stanwyck is outstanding as Martha, with her predatory smile and sharp, manicured nails. Kirk Douglas is surprisingly convincing as a lost, sad, weak man, who loves his wife, but is unable to gain her respect. The Strange Love of Martha Ivers eventually lapsed into public domain and became a ubiquitous presence on cable television. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Too Late for Tears When Lizabeth Scott's Jane Greer husband Arthur Kennedy accidentally gets his mitts on $60,000 in stolen money, she insists that he keep the dough rather than turn it over to the authorities. Two-bit private eye Dan Duryea catches on to Scott's subterfuge, and demands that she turn the cash over to him. Scott persuades Duryea to split the money with her--then, determining that Kennedy might be too honest for everyone's own good, she murders her husband. To cover her tracks, Scott reports her husband as missing. This brings in yet another fly in the ointment: Don DeFore, the brother of Scott's first husband, who died under mysterious circumstances. The already knotted webs of intrigue become even more tangled before Scott's ironic c
Includes:The Full Monty (1997), MPAA Rating: R Bend It Like Beckham (2002), MPAA Rating: PG-13 Waitress (2007), MPAA Rating: PG-13 The Full Monty Six guys with nothing left to lose try losing their clothing for fun and profit in this international hit comedy. Gaz (Robert Carlyle) and Dave (Mark Addy) are two former steelworkers in the British industrial town of Sheffield who have been devastated by the economic downturn in their community. Gaz is threatened with losing visitation rights with his son if he can't pay his child support, while Dave feels emasculated by his inability to support his wife. One day, Gaz stops by a local pub for a drink and is told it's women only tonight -- the Chippendales male exotic dancing troupe is playing, and they are demanding a hefty cover charge. Gaz decides there's nothing a bunch of pantywaists from America can do that he and his pals can't do better, and decides to form his own crew of male strippers, called "Hard Steel." However, the local talent pool leaves a bit to be desired. Gaz isn't bad looking, but Dave is a bit heavy and very self conscious about it. Horse (Paul Barber) was probably hot stuff at Soul Night in the mid-70's, but his joints don't move like they used to. Guy (Hugo Speer) can't dance to save his life, but makes the troupe because ... well, let's say he and Dirk Diggler would have a lot to say to each other. Lomper (Steve Huison) is sometimes too busy attempting suicide to practice. And Gerald (Tom Wilkinson), their choreographer, isn't much on male exotic dancing -- ballroom dancing is more his speed. While "Hard Steel"'s performances are more amusing then enticing, for the first time since they lost their jobs the men have a reason to get up in the morning; joining the group has given them a circle of friendship, and a renewed sense of purpose. Combining broad comedy with believable and well-drawn characters, The Full Monty was a major box-office hit both in England and the United States and was nominated for Academy Awards as Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide Bend It Like Beckham An independent-minded young woman discovers the joys of football, much to her family's chagrin, in this upbeat British comedy drama. Jess Bhamra (Parminder Nagra) is an 18-year-old growing up in West London, where her family has taken every effort to stay in touch with its Indian heritage. Jess' father and mother (Anupam Kher and Shaheen Khan) are after their daughter to go to law school, learn to cook a traditional Indian dinner, and settle down with a nice Indian boy -- the latter of which is high on the agenda of her older sister Pinky (Archie Panjabi), who is soon to wed her longtime beau Teetu (Kulvinder Ghir). However, her family is unaware that Jess has a secret passion -- football (or soccer, as it's known in North America). While Jess' enthusiasm for football star David Beckham is obvious, given the fact his photos cover the walls of her room, her parents don't know that in her spare time she likes to play a friendly game in the park with some of the boys in the neighborhood. One day, while Jess and her pals kick the ball around, she meets Jules (Keira Knightley), who is quite impressed with Jess' skills. Jules plays with a local semi-pro women's football team, the Hounslow Harriers, and she thinks Jess has what it takes to make the team. Jess knows that her parents would never approve of their daughter playing football, so she doesn't tell them, and starts spinning an increasingly complex series of lies as she tries to keep up a double life as a student and a footballer. Jess soon discovers a number of her new friends have their own problems to overcome; Jules dreams of playing pro ball in America, but has to deal with her stubborn and disapproving mother (Juliet Stevenson), while Joe (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), Hounslow's Irish coach, still struggles with the disappointment of a career as a professional athlete which was
