Information about The The Titanic from Mill Creek Entertainment:

An Extraordinary Adventure. An All-Star Cast. 
The Titanic sets sail on a collision course with destiny in this spellbinding epic adventure, featuring outstanding performances by Peter Gallagher, George C. Scott, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Eva Marie Saint, Tim Curry and Marilu Henner. Titanic melds together the heart-wrenching stories of people whose lives, loves, and fortunes were irrevocably changed the night of April 14, 1912.
The story begins in London, when a young pickpocket, Jaime Perse, steals his way onboard the Titanic. The cream of high society are gathering there, including society matron Hazel Foley, financier John Jacob Astor, self-made millionaire Wynn Park, and the infamous Molly Brown. But also on-board is Simon Doonan, a hard-bitten criminal determined to rob the first-class passengers and simultaneously destroy Jaime's last chance to start over.
THE TITANIC weaves a captivating mosaic of lives that will touch your heart forever. 1,523 men, women, and children perished the night the Titanic sailed into darkness. Only 705 passengers survived. Their tragic experience will grip your imagination. Their courage will capture your heart.

My Thoughts:

Titanic The Complete Mini-Series Event is an interesting drama that was just released on DVD and Blu-ray on August 2. It originally was a 2-part miniseries which aired in 1996 on CBS and runs for 174 minutes altogether on one disc. Some of my favorite actors such as George C. Scott and Eva Marie Saint star in this adventurous film. It starts with a thief who gets his ticket on the Titanic by stealing it, then meets another criminal while on board. Another story line tells of a woman who meets her former lover on the ship and confesses a secret to him after she is lowered on a lifeboat. Then you have a family traveling with their new nurse, who they find out has a criminal past, which makes them fearful for their children. 

Information about World War II When Lions Roared from Mill Creek Entertainment:

Engrossing…the casting is brilliant.” – Washington Post
Superb, inventive and highly original.” – Baltimore Sun
Michael Caine, John Lithgow, Bob Hoskins and Ed Begley Jr. star in this award-winning mini-series shot in hi-def. At the Tehran and Yalta Conferences, the strong personalities of three of the world’s most powerful leaders threaten their fragile alliance. This riveting historical drama portrays the precarious relationship between Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin at the pivotal moments when the final strategies of the war hung in the balance.

My Thoughts:

This is a miniseries from 1994 which became available on DVD just this past August 2. It runs 3 hours and 3 minutes long and includes 1 disc. I'll admit, I wasn't very interested in history when I was younger and in school, but now that I'm getting a little older it is much more interesting to me. In that regard, I was excited to view this film which portrays some historical data. The actors portray some of the world's leaders wonderfully and I learned more historical facts that I didn't know before about WWII. I enjoyed a couple of my favorite actors in this miniseries, such as John Lithgow (Roosevelt) and Michael Caine (Stalin).

Check out some awesome movies and television shows that Mill Creek Entertainment has to offer. You'll find mysteries, dramas, comedies, westerns, musicals, horror....and the list goes on! You'll find something for every member of your family to watch and they have a wide variety of genres to choose from.
