"Well the bummer is that your local video store is long gone...and so is Blockbuster, Hollywood Video, Tower...There are basically no more rental video stores left in this country." - Charles Band 2014 (director of Trancers, promoting FullMoonStreaming.com) (In the mid-west rent from the nearly 800 Family Video stores.) New: Berlin is in Germany (2001) Upcomming: Captain Marvel Other Updates 05/17/2019: "The Dead Next Door" vs address .

Treasure Guards (2011)
Our world is shrinking but the shifting sands still hold secrets....
"You are still living in a Jeep, I presume?" It's a fun movie not meant to be taken seriously, but enjoyed as a "practical" excursion into archaeology issues (money, history, relegion, God) with hints of Highlander (only I will think so), IndiANNA Jones and the Librarian. With a clever, "silent", non-lethal, dartgun battle in a place of antiquities that reminds one of Lazer Tag battles, I don't even ask where Victoria (Anna Friel) aquired a dress...the balance of new and ancient technology blends well with this paladin, princess, thief adventure ...which makes one think it could be a test pilot for a tv or movie series.
I Hate the Color Red (2015)
It ain't easy being Awesome
I don't know if her parents said "Someday all this will be yours" or not, but Sophie Mendoza (Kristine Gerolaga) and her younger brother Junior (Jose Angeles) had it happen to them after her parents died in auto accident...life goes on and in this case "Awesome Video", a video rental store, full of "her" movies, is her life. All the great motion pictures she grew up with made her decide that she wanted to make movies, like many before her who worked in the treasure vaults of film...in this day and age of convenience her dreams are crashing on the rocky shores of faded glory...many things are making her see RED...Netflix, REDBOX, and other things...but she is a creature of joy, humor and love...one day she knows its all up to her to decide what to do.
The story is fun with excellent acting, music and camera work. For other movies of video store life check out "Be Kind Rewind", "A Real Job" or "Drop Box"...

Jack Deth loving the 80's
Watched it on DVD, quickie review....Trancers 1.5 City of Lost Angels....spoilers...
it had funny lines and not a trancer in sight...Leena (Helen Hunt) wants to break up with Jack Deth as he just sits around his detective agency and enjoys the 1980's (he is from the future)...an assassin has broken out of prison and has come "down the line" (of ancestors) to kill Jack..."dry hair is for squids!"...His boss Mcnaulty as a 13 years old girl was loads of fun... about thirty minutes of episode and more than that in extras...(trailers, message from "Jack", behind the scenes Trancers 2 (Jack, Leena, Megan Ward), comments from the 1.5 screening and history of the missing episode)
As of July 31, 2014, the new Trancers (1) Bluray includes "City of Lost Angels" as an extra.
