The Price Of Service

As a naturalized American citizen who has served in the Israeli military, I am familiar with the price that a soldier must pay for serving his country.   It is a price that does not only come for the possible ultimate sacrifice he or she may be required to give, it is also the price his family and loved ones must pay as well... alive or dead.

Why I Chose To Do This Movie

Sophocles told of the warrior’s suffering in his plays Ajax and Philoctetes, 2,500 years before we coined the acronym PTSD. The story has been rewritten and told again numerous times throughout history and shows us a portion of the price we pay for our wars. It is a price that grows greater in the dark silence of ignorance. As more men and women come home from the Middle East, we should retell this tale lest more veterans die amidst the ignorance and apathy of a citizenry which has forgotten the lessons of the last hundred wars.

Take An Action... Even A Small One Makes A Difference

The world seems frustrated at the moment how to get things done. I think people are generally overwhelmed.

To Fall On Your Own Sword

Most people will immediately know what that means, even though when I last checked most of us are not in the habit of carrying swords about these days. If one stops to wonder about the phrase and its origins we may in our short-sightedness conjure images of Seppuku (ritual suicide) performed by Japanese soldiers in WWII. But the origins in Western Culture run much further back in time.

Duncan's World (1978)

By the time that Ben was 15, he had been starring in commercials and a neighbor who was in the North Carolina film business as a casting agent saw them and cast Ben as Duncan's friend in a cute movie.

Bad Kids Go To Hell (2014)

One day on FaceBook, we got a call to go and post on a new Producer's group who was asking for actor's names to play an unnamed role in a horror movie with the ominous name of Bad Kids Go To Hell. We knew Ben's director from A Killer Within, Brad Keller, was helping produce the movie which was to be based on a graphic novel by two guys from Dallas, Tx. So we did what Scapers do and "puppy piled™" about Ben Browder and he was cast.

Outlaws And Angels

In 2016, Ben showed up in a very gory behind the scenes picture that was being shot in New Mexico by a small production company, JT Mollner's No Remake Pictures . This independent film turned out to be JT Mollner's "Outlaws and Angels" and we immediately rubbed our eyes at Ben's transformation. He had shaved his head and put on weight to play the character of George Tildon.

Guardians Of the Galaxy, Vol. 2

Viewing 1

Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 cranks up the characters to 11. I loved the film and how each one of the original Guardians has family issues, whether it's Peter Quill's daddy issues (which are pretty complex given that he discovers his real dad is a planet or Celestial Body played with scenery-chewing gusto by Kurt Russell) or Nebula and Gamora who really should settle their sisterly conflicts more quietly; or Rocket who is still quite traumatized by his creation.

Farscape: Peacekeeper Wars

PK Wars has a mixed review among Scapers with some complaining that there isn't enough character moments especially between the secondary characters. That it became the John and Aeryn show. Others adored the action and John and Aeryn story amidst the battles and Scorpius manipulations that lead to the use of the wormhole weapon.

Dead Still

The Booth Brothers are famous for producing, writing and directing very gory horror films that win awards within this genre. Dead Still came about because they became fascinated in the 19th Century Victorian practice of making "Death Photos" whereby the photographer would pose dead people as if they were living. Because they are horror film aficionados, they of course wrote and directed a film that deals with a haunted camera that needs bodies so causes terrible deaths of anyone who gets their picture taken using an ancient camera.

Continuum

Stargate: Continuum is a brilliant, poignant and bittersweet film, both for its remarkable story and for the fact that it is the last of the Stargate films ever made. It is the ultimate "You can't go home again" tale, as Cameron Mitchell finds himself trapped in an alternate timeline and eventually, the past, unable to ever see his friends or family again.

Bad Kids Of Crestview Academy

Max Rainwater is a mysterious guy. In 2013, Ben described the role as playing Boo Radley of To Kill A Mockingbird. That was for the first time he played the character in Bad Kids Go To Hell which was a gory horror film. Ben's Max was the comedic relief in some ways with his moving things around and his dim responses to anyone who spoke to him. Yet, even in that movie there were hints that there was more to him than met the eye. Why was a janitor allowed in the Headmaster's office handling files? Why was he in the library and what's with the roaches he seemed to command?

Ark Of Truth

The first of two movies made by Bridge Studios based on the television version of Stargate was Ark of Truth which finished the story of the Ori. I admit that the bastardized version of the Matter of Britain: Merlin, Arthur, Morgaine Le Fay and all left me cold so I skip the pieces that take place on the same fake medieval village set that they used in all the Season 9 and 10 episodes.
