After spending several years in a mental institute Charlie (Michael Douglas) is sent home, reuniting with his teenage daughter Miranda (Evan Rachel Wood).  Charlie becomes obsessed with the notion that a long-lost Spanish treasure is buried underneath their local suburban California Costco.  Disconnected from reality and his daughter’s life, Charlie’s erratic behavior further strains their relationship and completely disrupts her peaceful existence.

Sex and Breakfast — Didn’t really like this one. Just not that good. Just can’t break out of some molds. Like some Home alone molds.

 

King of California — This one was …… alright. It probably wasn’t something I’d ever want to see again though. Once was enough for me.

This special 3-DVD set also includes a CD Soundtrack
Featuring 8 of Sonic Underground’s Greatest Hits!

 

 

The heroic hedgehog is back! As told in an ancient prophecy, Sonic is reunited with his two siblings, Sonia and Manic, to form a band – Sonic Underground – using their electric guitar, keyboard, and drumset (which seamlessly transform into weapons during battle) to fight the evil Dr. Robotnik, all while searching for their mother, Queen Aleena Hedgehog. But there’s still one more problem: the queen doesn’t want to meet her children at the wrong time, thus altering the fate of her family – but only when the prophecy is fulfilled can the planet Mobius return to a world of peace and harmony!

Sonic Underground is the third animated series based on the popular Sega video game character, featuring Family Matters’ Jaleel White as the voice of Sonic and Sean Connery as the voice of Great-Grandfather Athair. Each of the 40 episodes in the series also featured a Sonic Underground song in music video form. Rock on with Prince Sonic, Princess Sonia, and Prince Manic as they travel to planet Mobodoon, elude captivity by the robotic hands of bounty hunters Sleet and Dingo, and battle ART – Dr. Robotnik’s most horrible henchman yet! Sonic Underground: Volume 1 will be available for the first time in a 3-DVD set on December 18, 2007 for $34.99 SRP.

Imagine a world cloaked in complete darkness. Food and water supplies disappear, tsunamis and fires rage, and scorching temperatures plummet to an Ice Age cold within months. Many scientists believe these cataclysmic environmental changes wiped out the dinosaurs after a gigantic asteroid struck the planet millions of years ago…and some say humans could be the next species to face extinction. SUPER COMET: AFTER THE IMPACT dares to bring the unthinkable to life in a fascinating look at how humans could adapt to a new world plagued by devastation on a global scale. You’ll be riveted as you watch this unfolding of ultimate destruction that also celebrates the will of our species to survive despite incredible odds.

Deep beneath the sands of Egypt’s fabled Valley of the Kings lay the anonymous remains of one of ancient history’s greatest - and least known - rulers, Queen Hatshepsut. More powerful than Cleopatra or Nefertiti, Queen Hatshepsut not only died mysteriously but every sign of her existence was systematically erased. Now for the first time ever, top archaeologists use cutting-edge forensic techniques to unravel the mystery of Hatshepsut’s life and death, unearthing her fascinating story that has remained buried for 3,000 years.

Was pretty cool. Whole family watched most of it. They didn’t plan to, but they lingered after wandering into the room.
