  • Defendor is a 2009 Canadian-American superhero comedy-drama film written and directed by Peter Stebbings, and starring Woody Harrelson, Kat Dennings, Elias Koteas and Sandra Oh.The story tells of a regular man who adopts the persona of a real-life superhero named Defendor on a quest to find his arch enemy, Captain Industry. Defendor, Stebbings' feature film debut, was written in 2005 and ...

  • Defendor is the story of a simple, deluded, child-like man, who thinks he's a super-hero. In all likelihood, he should have died a swift and brutal death no later than ten minutes in, but it seems that God watches out for the simple-minded, even in movies.

  • *It should be noted that this film is more worthy of 3.5 stars, ergo only slighty above average* This is an interesting film with a more or less realisitic approach to its subject; being a "super hero".

  • Arthur Poppington (2009 Golden Globe┬« Nominee Woody Harrelson- Best Supporting Actor, The Messenger) doesn't need superpowers or fancy toys to fight crime. Armed only with a childlike sense of wonder and his quirky arsenal of cheap, homemade gadgets, he becomes DEFENDOR!

  • The greatest fault of The Thin Red Line was its timing - it was released at around the same time as Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan. While most people dismissed The Thin Red Line as the `other' World War II movie of 1998, it's actually a very different kind of film - the film itself is not hurt by similarity to Ryan but was hurt commercially due to the misconception.

  • Sapphire ┬« specialty herbicide is effective for removing perennial ryegrass and broadleaf weeds from warm-season grasses during the spring.

  • Trouble City is an unfiltered look at Pop Culture, Media, and the World. It's an antidote to the B.S. in plentiful supply.

  • A terrorist organization on the then-organic world of Gobotron, the Renegades thwarted the peacekeeping efforts of the Guardians, the primary law enforcement on the planet.Under the machinations of the Master Renegade, these insurgent cells eventually committed the act of sabotage that resulted in a meteor rendering Gobotron uninhabitable to organic life.
