Outlander [DVD] [2009] <b>DVD</b> ~ James Caviezel

4.0 out of 5 stars Beowulf meets Predator, 23 July 2014
A spaceship crash lands on Earth , Norway, 709 AD. Only 2 occupants survive, Kainan (Caviezel) & an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Seeking revenge for those it perceived to have wronged it, Kainan must convince & work with the local village of warring Vikings to hunt it down & kill it, before it destroys them all!

The Football is mostly set around the training field practice, but in the few… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars "I think I nailed him", 13 July 2014
Disgruntled bouncer Doug Glatt (William Scott) is a nice guy, yet not the sharpest tool in the box. His physical prowess is discovered by a minor league hockey team, who send him to help semi-pro side Halifax Highlanders who are stuck in a rut. Can he help protect their star player & get them fired up again ?

The core of the film is a brutally violent insight into Doug's role as an 'enforcer' on & off the ice, with a great combination of light hearted & gross out comedy drama co-written by Jay Baruchel & Evan Goldberg (This is the End), based on a true story from the book… Read more
