Explore the World of Unique Animals

Australian film-maker and adventure Greg Grainger has a knack for creating documentaries that examine and exposure some of the world’s most fascinating creatives. His documentaries are beautifully shot, packed full of interesting information, and they’re sure to excite your sense of adventure as they take you around the world.

Two of Grainger’s documentaries – Fabulous Foals and On Thin Ice – will do that and much more. They’re wonderful docs that offer in-depth examinations of some of the world’s favourite furry friends, and they’re endlessly fascinating.

Fabulous Foals

Horses are majestic and mysterious, and in Fabulous Foals, they’re completely demystified. Produced by GraingerTV, this stand-alone documentary takes viewers on an around-the-world exploration of the horse. No stone is left unturned. From an in-depth look at different breeds of horses, to lifecycle of the horse from foal to adult, Fabulous Foals dazzles as it provides a comprehensive equine history.

You might never have ridden a horse. Or maybe you find them scary to be around. Either way, this documentary will fascinate you, as it delivers an endless stream of interesting factoids about horses around the world. When watching this documentary, you get to do it all: Take a ride into the world of horse sporting, and learn about horse jumping, cross country riding and dressage. Look at how different breeds were developed for specific jobs. And finally, explore some of the more obscure ways we humans interact with horses – from training them to star in TV shows, to taking them for swims at the beach.

Even if you’ve never been interested in horses, Fabulous Foals is sure to capture your attention and entertain. It’s fun, yet informative; beautifully shot, and most importantly, it’s captivating.

On Thin Ice

Not many of us will have the chance to travel to the Arctic to see polar bears, and with polar bears facing extinction, we may be losing the time to do it. Fortunately, we have film-maker and adventurer Greg Grainger’s On Thin Ice, an in-depth exploration of the plight of polar bears in the Arctic. Compiled during more than a year of expeditions in the frozen landscape, Grainger’s documentary delivers striking photos of polar bears in their natural habitats.

Yet, this isn’t just a naturalist look at these majestic creatures. Grainger’s documentary provides a crash course the changing climate and the affect it is having on bears in the Arctic. From dwindling food sources, to vanishing landscapes, On Thin Ice doesn’t just capture the beautiful landscapes; it also effectively documents the shocking affect its having on polar bears. Grainger and his crew captured footage of starving bears fighting dogs at a Norwegian weather station, images of a bear believed to have succumbed to starvation, and video of bears that had wandered into towns looking for food.

Simply put, On Thin Ice is a moving documentary that captures the beautiful, yet disappearing landscapes of the Arctic and the animals that call these environs home. You’ll feel the cold, as well as the isolation when watching hour-plus feature. It’s masterfully executed and beautifully shot, and well worth your time to watch.

On the Edge of Your Seat with These Action Flicks

Good actions movies are chock full of suspense with storylines that fly and keep our attention. They keep us glued to the edge of our seats. Plus, when you throw some explosions, chase scenes, and shootouts in the mix, you can’t help but wait to see happens next.

Idol of Evil and Airborne couldn’t be more different. One follows kidnapping Satanists, while the other is the story of a black ops team that must retrieve a stolen viral agent before it’s too late. Although they’re different, they’re both wonderful, edge-of-your-seat action films that will get your heart racing.

Idol of Evil: Hell is Forever

Idol of Evil starts simple enough. David Hilton, played by actor Richard Cambridge, is a mythological researcher. He spends his days investigating paranormal and strange, mythic events. Yet, when his colleague Dr. Kixley is kidnapped by a group of marauding Satanists, Hilton might be her only hope for survival.

We find out that Kixley is no ordinary researcher. She holds the key to an ancient riddle that can unleash evil on Earth. Kixley’s knowledge is so dangerous; her kidnappers will go to great lengths to use his knowledge for evil.

Directed by Kevin McDonagh and released in 2009, Idol of Evil: Hell Is Forever will keep you tuned into the action. Hilton is in a race against time through the English countryside, and you’ll just have to watch to see how he makes out. With its clear influences from Raiders of the Lost Ark, as well as its action-packed scenes, Idol of Evil is a must-watch for action mystery enthusiasts.

Airborne

Julian Grant’s Airborne has the plot of your average action movie: A black ops team is tasked with retrieving a dangerous virus-causing agent from a gang of thieves. The virus gets into the hands of an international arms dealer, and it’s up to the team to save humanity. You get it. Starring 80s heartthrob Steve Guttenberg – famous for Police Academy – and British badboy Sean Bean, Airborne packs the action into its 90-minute runtime.

Featuring a daring mid-air mission, as well as plenty of shootouts and chase scenes, the film holds its own against Big Budget action movies. Yet, it’s clearly a low-budget affair. Either way, Airborne is a must-watch if you’re a fan of flashy, explosion-heavy action movies.

A Heist and a Wilderness Survival Story: Two Action Movies You’ll Love on ViewLorium

What makes for a good action movie? A fast moving story? Adventures in far-away lands? Shootouts? Well, you will get all that and more from Rapid Fear and Braille. Both films offer unique takes on the action genre, featuring intriguing storylines, well-executed cinematography and entertaining, action-packed scenes.

Rapid Fear

In Geoff Cox’s Rapid Fear, six teenage delinquents are given a choice: Serve 48 hours in jail or spend the time on a teambuilding camping and survival trip in the woods. They all choose the latter, and the group is sent on a wild adventure deep in the backcountry. The expedition team is led by hardened ex-con James (played by Peter Kent), who’s recently been released from prison, as well as a warden and several other adults.

The thing is: There’s an evil presence stalking the group in the woods, and as the teen’s chaperones slowly start to disappear, it will be up to these hardened teens to band together to save each other and survive in the wilderness. Also starring Steven Grives, Rapid Fear starts quickly with a chase scene, and the adventure just flows from there. You will be glued to the screen just waiting to see how these youngsters survive.

Braille

In writer/director Matthew Chuang’s Braille, a classic action plotline is turned on its head. This isn’t your average action movie storyline. In the film, we have a former thief named Nick – who’s now blind – and Nick’s looking to avenge misdeeds that are nearly two decades in the past. To help with this complex, payback heist, Nick brings three young thieves on board to serve as his protégés.

The planning and execution of the heist carries the story forward at razor-sharp speeds, but it’s what Chuang accomplishes in the script that makes this story unique. Chuang has written a rich, vibrant tale. There’s drama and depth in his characters, which sometimes you don’t find in the genre. Plus, Chuang has a knack for pacing. The story moves along quickly during the race against the clock to heist a stolen diamond.

What’s more, Chuang used a digital format for the movie, and as a result, the cinematography has a distinctive movie screen type look that’s interesting and elegant. Braille works on so many levels: From the plot, to the cinematography, and although its low budget is sometimes evident, it’s certainly a film you don’t want to miss.

Wonders of a Billabong

The billabong has become one of Australia’s icons, thanks to it being made *famous* by the poems of Banjo Patterson. A billabong is basically a river that has been cut off, when a river changes its course it often leaves a banana shaped stretch of water, over time this area becomes land locked and transforms itself into a tranquil lagoon – a billabong.

In Wonders of a Billabong Ben chooses to show viewers one of the best billabongs he has ever seen this one is located outside Litchfield National Park in the Northern Territory. This stunning billabong is literally teaming with life and Ben (who is filming in High Definition) captures all of the amazing wildlife and the beautiful scenery. Watching the wildlife we learn how the daily predator VS prey of the animal kingdom is played out – a daily upheaval that takes place in an otherwise tranquil and pristine billabong.

In this apparently calm lagoon you’ll see the water full of crocodiles – both the harmless fresh water and the dangerous salt water varieties, learn how they prey on the turtles, barramundi, cat-fish and file snakes that call this billabong home. There are other lizards living there too including the water dragons that also feed on smaller prey.

There is a range of birdlife flying over head including darters, cormorants, pelicans and osprey eagles – all who are capable of diving and capturing the fish that live in the billabong. Ben captures crocodiles stalking and catching a wild pig and a wallaby! This amazing 52 minute documentary captures the beauty of this uniquely Australian icon both above and below the water.

Who Doesn’t Like a Good Laugh?

Swimsuit The Movie

Swimsuit The Movie is just one of the many comedy movies available to watch through ViewLorium. The movie is what we call a *mockumentary* – which is set out like a documentary – but of course a whole lot funnier. The movie revolves around a fictional chemical company who have decided to put out a swimsuit issue so they can capitalise on the old *sex sells* adage and they hope that sex will sell their awful products. The mocking part of this documentary is that the company actually sells everything! Everything from faulty breast implants, toilet paper and lousy chicken nuggets to toxic water and chemicals that destroy the environment – basically anything they can get wrong – they do!

The firms motto is deceive and destroy!

The documentary part of the movie is them actually making the swimsuit catalogue.

Mrs Allison is the owner of the Saltare Swimwear Company – along with her not so bright assistant Willard and her top man Brian they have to find the men and women who can be perspective models for her swimwear range. Through the movie we look into the personal life of these young hopefuls and the strenuous workouts and photo shoots they undertake to make the cut – but only a few will be chosen.

Swimsuit The Movie is quite funny and without a doubt the funniest character is Jeremy Hollister who is the alcoholic photographer in charge of photographing the catalogue. Of course there are some pretty hot women including supermodel Sandy Scotland who is played by Suzanne Lanza.

Think of a Sports Illustrated swimsuit shoot, beautiful women in bikini’s selling the advantages of these horrible products. Every model is trying to do their very best with shoots taking place on an oily beach, inside a rainforest and some other rather unfortunate locations. Will anyone actually quit before the photo shoot is over?

You’ll find the models are stunning and have strong personalities while the head of the company makes outrageous comments about the environment and the impact of his chemicals, you’ll enjoy the scenery but the acting leaves a lot to be desired….. But it is a classic B-grade movie!

Swimsuit The Movie was made in 1997 and stars Rebeccah Bush, Arthur Roberts, Oliver Muirhead, Heidi Mark and Suzanne Lanza, and runs for 83 minutes.

2 More Action Movies on Viewlorium

Hypercane

Hypercane – or 500MPH Storm as it is also known is one of many full action movies you can watch for free online. ViewLorium is your home for the best of the best B-grade movies out there, and the great thing is you can watch a wide range of movies and TV shows on ViewLorium, all for FREE any time you want! The plotline of Hypercane is quite simple – when an emergency experiment goes wrong a rash of massive hurricanes rip through North America, a scientist must now get his family to safety before these hurricanes merge – once merged they will form a hypercane with enough power to literally wipe America off the map.

Released in 2013 this action movie runs for 1 hour 26 and stars Casper Van Dien, Michael Beach and Sarah Lieving.

You will find Hypercane is one of those b-grade movies that is totally silly, quite bad but actually interesting and is a great movie if you have ever wondered *what if* a huge storm, hurricane, tornado etc were to hit. The special effects (basically the storm) seem to follow the hero and his family in their car and hit a factory complex, start a forest fire and are pretty corny, but isn’t that what we all love about b-grade movies?

As with all b-grade movies there is a question mark over some of the acting and they sure get around, one minute being in the foothills of the mountains, the next scene by a river and then suddenly they are up in the Sandia Mountains! This free online movie at ViewLorium will see some very strange dialogue, corny special effects, and actors who don’t act very well. For lovers of this style of movie and who want to be entertained by something different for 90 minutes, you’ll love it!

Witness in the Warzone

Witness in the Warzone – also known as *Deadline* is a great b-grade action movie available to watch free online and is a 1987 war/drama/action film about a journalist (Christopher Walken) ace reporter Don Stevens who has been set up using false information.

Ben Cropps Wild Australia – Vanishing Grey Nurse Sharks. Without a doubt Australia’s grey nurse shark population is declining and is on the brink of extinction. It began during the 1960’s when shark netting programmes began catching hundreds of local grey nurse sharks. At the same time a new *sport* was born – shark hunting which targeted the slow moving grey nurse sharks that hunted off the NSW coast.

Ben Cropp is your host for this thrilling documentary which is brilliant as Ben was once a shark hunter who swapped his spears for a camera and began capturing the majestic grey nurse shark on camera rather than killing them.

There are 57 known *shark gutters* along the NSW coast where thousands of grey nurse sharks are schooled, the once thriving population is now falling. Not helping is the very strange natural reproduction system of the shark. The most advanced embryo in each of the shark’s two uteri will actually eat all the remaining embryos – this process is called intrauterine cannibalism.

Ben Cropp knows these sharks well and he knows where they live from his shark hunting days, these days he returns to the areas to study and film their behaviour. Within just a few kilometres of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Ben finds a family of grey nurse sharks living in a cave just meters from shore.

Learn more about these amazing creatures at ViewLorium this documentary and many more are available to watch free TV on line 24/7. Watch when YOU want to watch it!
