Robert Zemeckis is arguably a close second behind Steven Spielberg as the contemporary American director who has most consistently gained critical acclaim while generating massive box office and popular appeal with a slew of iconic films. Even Zemeckis' purported failures—and there indubitably are some—are often lionized for their breathtaking vision and utilization of modern special effects techniques like motion capture. But just a cursory review of the man's contributions to film over the past 40 years reveals a staggering array of acclaimed and often insanely popular titles: Romancing the Stone, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump, Contact, Cast Away. If Zemeckis' post-Cast Away career has been lambasted for its emphasis on motion capture, with efforts like The Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol, audiences have still flocked to see the movies, with Polar Express earning north of $300 million worldwide, Beowulf (which actually garnered stronger reviews than Polar) coming in close to $200 million, and A Christmas Carol doing even better than Polar, with at least the chance of repeated seasonal releases which will increase its massive third of a billion-plus take. And so it's perhaps difficult to think of Zemeckis as anything other than a Hollywood insider who can pretty much call his own shots and get virtually anything greenlit with a simple phone call or two. 'Twas not always the case, as Zemeckis himself makes clear in several of the documentaries and commentaries featured on this new three Blu-ray set celebrating the 25th anniversary of one of Zemeckis' most beloved projects, Back to the Future.

Originally broadcast in April and May of 1998, hosted by executive producer Tom Hanks, the miniseries tackles the daunting challenge of chronicling the entire history of NASA's Apollo space program from 1961 to 1972. For the most part, it's a rousing success. Some passages are flatly chronological, awkwardly wedging an abundance of factual detail into a routine dramatic structure. But each episode is devoted to a crucial aspect of the Apollo program. The cumulative effect is a deep and thorough appreciation of NASA's monumental achievement. With the help of a superlative cast, consistent writing, and a stable of talented directors, Hanks has shared his infectious enthusiasm for space exploration and the inspiring power of conquering the final frontier.

Nicki Richards - Naked (To The World) (1991)  Music

MP3 CBR 320kbps | RAR | 113 mb
Genre: R&B, soul

Naked (To The World) is the 1991 debut album by soul vocalist Nicki Richards. Released by Atlantic, she had two hits from the album, "Naked" and a cover of Seals & Crofts' "Summer Breeze" done in the arrangement of The Isley Brothers' version, which did fairly well on the charts. She didn't follow up with a second album quickly and faded into obscurity until releasing a second effort 17 years later, with little to no fanfare. With proper promotion, this could have been one of the best R&B albums of the 1990's.

With more than a few live albums under their belts during an esteemed career, one would think that another live album could only help reinforce the notion that Nazareth are capable of delivering the goods in a live setting just as well as in the studio. That notion is certainly supported here, as Back to the Trenches is a two-disc, 31-song affair that spans the years considered by many to be the band's most crucial in developing its signature sound. The early years of this anthology date back to the early '70s, when the band could be found at the top of its hard-rocking, blues-driven game, and works its way through all of the band's biggest hits before concluding with two songs from a Slough, UK, concert in 1984 a time that would be considered by most of their core audience to be the beginning of the "lean years" for the group. It's a great document for one of AOR's most consistently hard-driving bands, and die-hard fans will be pleased at the quality and quantity (certainly a generous portion for the money) of the Nazareth performances heard here.
