76. Reflections On Psalm 23 For People With Cancer

The Vital Prescription: Courage + Comfort = Hope Ken Curtis explores coping with advanced cancer from personal experience based on the inspiration of the 23rd Psalm Over 3,000 years ago, Israel’s King David — the same one who slew the giant Goliath — wrote what has become the most popular song in the entire history of the world. It is known as the 23rd Psalm. Its words have brought more comfort and courage to more people at more times at more places than any other words every written. When you combine its comfort and courage, then hope is generated. And hope is one of the most essential and valuable resources to help anyone suffering from cancer or from any major illness or setback in life. Ken Curtis was diagnosed with advanced cancer with little prospect for survival. He pursued a combination of traditional and alternative medicine, undergirded by a strong spiritual dimension and prayer support team. Psalm 23 was a vital part of his spiritual component, and for this video Curtis went to Israel, home of David and the Psalm, to be with the shepherds, travel “through the valley of the shadow of death,” and explore and enjoy the healing powers of the green pastures and still waters. The resulting meditations provide a combination of candid personal experience of what it means to battle cancer and some of the spiritual resources available through this time-honored Psalm. Ken Curtis. Ph.D, is founder and president of Gateway Films/Vision and Christian History Institute.

80. The Secret of Oz

The Secret of Oz won best documentary of 2010 at the Beloit International Film Festival. It won the Silver Sierra Award for Excellence in Filmmaking at the Yosemite Film Festival.
It won the Award of Merit at The Accolade Competition in La Jolla, California.
It won the Silver Screen Award at the Nevada Film Festival.

It’s received an excellent review on Nathan’s Economic Edge, one of the world’s top economics blogs.

It’s British premier was at the prestigious Bromsgrove conference on Oct. 1.

What’s going on with the world’s economy? Foreclosures are everywhere, unemployment is skyrocketing – and this may only be the beginning.
Could it be that solutions to the world’s economic problems could have been embedded in the most beloved children’s story of all time, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”?

The yellow brick, the emerald city of Oz, even Dorothy’s silver slippers (changed to ruby slippers for the movie version) were powerful symbols of author L. Frank Baum’s belief that the people – not the big banks — should control the quantity of a nation’s money.
The bottom line: No More National Debt. All our money is created out of debt. But nations don’t have to borrow money from banks. Sovereign nations can create their own money — debt free — just as Abraham Lincoln did.

81. New York Jets: The Complete History

Rated: G (General Audience)

Read Review
For the first time ever, you can own the Complete History of the New York Jets in a 2-disc set loaded with all the defining moments and enhanced content a Jets’ fan could ever want. From the vast emptiness of the Polo Grounds to the thunderous roar of the Meadowlands, NFL Films documents the incredible history of the New York Jets. Covering 47 seasons of passion, J-E-T-S takes you from the dismal hilarity of the early years, through the Joe Namath era, the New York Sack Exchange, the heartbreak kids of 1986 right up to the Eric Mangini era of today. The history of the New York Jets is unlike any other in the history of the NFL. Born into anonymity, formed on the consistent verge of bankruptcy, to love theJets is to dream. In January of 1969, the dream became reality as the Jets overcame the greatest odds in sports history to win Super Bowl III. But the euphoria of an incredible upset came at a price – for the next thirty-eight seasons the Jets would suffer one heartbreaking post-season loss after another. And yet Jets fans remain firm in their hope and their loyalty. Each year, the Jets are in the hunt-and their fans believe that each season will be the one to reclaim the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Since 1960 some of the game’s greatest heroes, and anti-heroes have performed in front of the game’s most loyal football fans. This is their story.

Burdened with an ever-expanding government and military, increased international competition, massively over-extended entitlement programs and debts to foreign countries that are impossible to honour, America must end its spendthrift ways or face an economic disaster of epic proportions. Authorities among the highest levels of global power, boldly examine the staggering growth of US national debt, its ramifications and global repercussions. The ultimate power of IOUSA is that the film moves beyond doomsday rhetoric to proffer potential financial scenarios and propose solutions. Pointedly topical and consummately non-partisan, IOUSA seriously drives home its message.

97. A Trip To The Moon & The Extraordinary Voyage Deluxe Combo Blu-Ray DVD Edition

Run Time: 130 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)

Read Review
No original hand-colored copies of A Trip to the Moon (Le Voyage dans la Lune – 1902), by Georges Méliès, had been known to survive until one was miraculously found in Spain in the mid-1990s, but in a fragmentary condition thought too fragile to handle for either viewing or restoration. In 2010, three experts in worldwide film restoration – Lobster Films, and two non-profit entities, Groupama Gan Foundation for Cinema and Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage – launched one of the most complex and ambitious film restoration projects ever to bring an original, colored version of Méliès masterpiece back 110 years after its first release. Using the most advanced digital technologies now available, the team reassembled and restored the fragments of the 13,375 frames. The two foundations, which carried out specifically the music part of this project, decided to approach AIR s Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel, to compose an original modern soundtrack to accompany this cinematic milestone. Flicker Alley is pleased present this brand new restoration which also features The Extraordinary Voyage, a fascinating new documentary, directed by Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange. The Extraordinary Voyage chronicles the journey of A Trip to the Moon from the fantastical Méliès production in 1902, to the astonishing rediscovery of a nitrate print in color in 1993, to the premiere of the new restoration on the opening night of the Cannes Film Festival in 2011. The documentary includes interviews with contemporary filmmakers, including Costa Gavras, Michel Gondry, Michel Hazanavicius, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet on Méliès enduring significance to cinema. BONUS FEATURES: This publication also contains A Trip to the Moon in a beautifully restored black and white edition from original 35 mm elements with two separate audio tracks of music: An orchestral score by Robert Israel with the original English narration written by Méliès; and a second track produced by Russell Merritt consisting of a troupe of actors voicing the various characters as performed in the U.S. in 1903, with piano music by Frederick Hodges. There is also an interview with the group AIR discusing their new soundtrack, and two lunar-related shorts by Méliès – The Eclipse (1904) and The Astronomer’s Dream (1898).

A highlight of the film (other than the music) is a performance of the group on the roof of their Apple Corps headquarters on Saville Row on January 30, 1969 which turned out to be their last together. The police interrupting the performance and the shots of the crowds on the street and nearby rooftops are oft-repeated elements still in use in music video and concert films today.
