  • Beavis and Butt-Head

    Beavis and Butt-Head (1994)
    Television (Animation, Comedy and Music) Miscellaneous Crew Beavis and Butt-head's lives revolve around three simple things. (1) Barely attending school, which sucks. They do nothing, they learn squat, they know diddly, they hate the teachers - and, amazingly, they manage to avoid being thrown out. (2) Trying to score with chicks - something we know they'll never achieve. (3) Watching TV. Lots of TV. If something in the real world doesn't relate to what they know from TV, it sucks. They especially enjoy "reviewing" music videos - or just commenting inanely on them. If a video contains heavy rock, scantily-clad babes or anti-authority figures, it's cool - otherwise, it sucks.

  • UFOs and the Alien Presence

    UFOs and the Alien Presence (1992)
    Video (Documentary) Director World renowned UFO author and researcher Michael Lindemann presents the facts on how the government has worked to shape the public view about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Now referred to as the "spin factor," we find that our current views are based on sensationalistic Hollywood propaganda. Government deception, secret underground bases, unexplained cattle mutilations, secret advanced technology and alien abductions are just a few of the many topics covered in this intelligently researched program exposing the misinformation and the facts behind the truth. The presentation is not slanted in any direction, and the director (Marty Thomas) framed the documentary with a unique, fast paced style. The real photos and film clips (over 500) are strange and fascinating. Written by FOX Releasing
