Plot Outline: Three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed-even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.

Plot Outline: Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined. Widgets

Plot Outline: Even the best secret agents carry a debt from a past mission. Rachel Singer must now face up to hers…In 1997, shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents, Rachel and Stephan about their former colleague David. All three have been venerated for decades by Israel because of the secret mission that they embarked on for their country back in 1965-1966, when the trio tracked down Nazi war criminal Dieter Vogel, the feared Surgeon of Birkenau, in East Berlin. While Rachel found herself grappling with romantic feelings during the mission, the net around Vogel was tightened by using her as bait. At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the team’s mission was accomplished – or was it?

Plot Outline: 1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde. It’s a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he’s been…

  1. Great list!!! I am a huge movie fan, and love seeing them in different media!! It gets to be a bit expensive going to the Theatres all the time, but every now and then I just have to go. For those other times, when money is tight, I love getting the new releases and watching them with family at home. I recently got the Blockbuster Movie Pass through work at DISH network, and it is the perfect solution for those in circumstances similar to mine. I have access to over 100,000 titles, either by mail, in store exchange or streaming live, and DISH even gave me 20 additional HD movie channels to expand my library. The great thing about getting all my movies through DISH is that DISH and Blockbuster work directly with production companies. This means I have access to new releases about a month before NetFlix and RedBox!!! True movie lovers will appreciate this and the Blockbuster Movie Pass the most!!
