Band - The Only
Way To Know For Sure
The Rollins Band has
always gone through a constant changing of identity over the years, the music
has moved smoothly from a defiant punk sound to a classic rock blend of '70s and
modern day anguish. The current lineup includes the rhythm crew of L.A.'s
Mother Superior. Featured on this album are 28 tracks that complement a
history of in your face music with the Rollins' Band cutting through fan faves
like Disconnect, What's The Matter Man, and Get Some Go. This live album pulls
it off by maintaining the power expressed from the studio to the stage.
Powers in Goldmember
Fan enthusiasm demanded a third
installment of this popular series. The evil plot at hand this time around comes
from Goldmember, a Dutch criminal madman from 1975, who plans to use a tractor
beam to bring a meteor of solid gold crashing into the Earth, flooding the
planet, and killing all of humanity. To stop him, Austin Powers must travel back
in time to team up with his old girlfriend, Foxxy Cleopatra (Beyonce Knowles),
where he also discovers that his father (Michael Caine) has been
kidnapped as part of Goldmember's evil scheme. It's a vast conspiracy that
eventually leads Austin
to seeking the unlikely help of Dr. Evil. This series is all about Mike Myers
contagious energy, which he continues to deliver. Yea baby!
This is an imaginative reworking of H.G. Wells'
classic novella by the author's great-grandson, director Simon Wells.
Though the original story and the 1960 film of the same name focused on
political and social matters, this version is more down to earth. The time
traveler (Guy Pearce) builds his time machine not so much to explore the
future, but to go into the past to prevent the murder of his fiancιe. When his
attempts at stopping fate fail, he jumps into the future to find out if there is
any way to change the past. There he discovers that humans have evolved into two
groups the hunters and the hunted. Now he must fight to save himself, and all
of mankind, in a final desperate battle. Superb special effects.
