Predator 1-4
15,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Collection of four action films. In 'Predator' (1987), Major Alan 'Dutch' Schaefer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and a band of mercenaries head into the Central American jungle to rescue some Americans from guerillas. However, there is an additional evil force at work in the jungle, something not human. The mercenaries are picked off one by one and soon Schaefer must face the alien predator alone. In 'Predator 2' (1990), crime-riddled futuristic Los Angeles becomes the target of an alien predator, killing drug lords and police alike. A maverick cop (Danny Glover) and a federal agent (Gary Busey) set out to capture the creature. In 'Alien vs. Predator' (2004), early in the 21st century billionaire Charles Weyland (Lance Hendriksen) is convinced that his satellite thermal imaging system has picked up evidence of an ancient life form buried under the ice in remotest Antarctica. When a team of archaeologists sets out to investigate, they find more than they had bargained for: the ancient pyramid temple they discover contains evidence that the alien life form it contained could still be in existence. They then find out from studying the hieroglyphics in the temple that an even greater threat is hanging over them: a group of Predators - the feared intergalactic hunters - are on their way to earth to take part in a rite-of-passage battle with the aliens that could lay waste to the human race. Finally, in 'Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem' (2007), returning to their home planet with several alien captives and a dead comrade on board, two Predator pilots are killed when an alien hybrid, unknowingly concealed in the body of their dead buddy, bursts forth. Before he dies however, the pilot manages to send off a distress signal to his home planet, where a Predator receives it before heading off to Earth in response. The spacecraft meanwhile, has crashlanded in the woods of Colorado, spilling its deadly cargo, who immediately set about culling the local population with extreme professionalism. It is not long before the Predator arrives, unleashing another almighty killing spree, as he tries to stop the hybrid reproducing in quantities that will soon overrun the county.

American on Purpose
10,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark-as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer. To numb the pain of failure, Ferguson found comfort in drugs and alcohol, addictions that eventually led to an aborted suicide attempt. (He forgot to do it when someone offered him a glass of sherry.) But his story has a happy ending: success on the hit sitcom The Drew Carey Show, and later as the host of CBS's Late Late Show. By far Ferguson's greatest triumph was his decision to become a U.S. citizen, a milestone he achieved in early 2008. In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson talks a red, white, and blue streak about everything our Founding Fathers feared.

America's Alligator (eBook, ePUB)
10,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

People have long been fascinated by the American alligator. Ever since humans arrived on the continent more than 15,000 years ago, the American alligator has been both feared and revered, celebrated and scorned, and often hunted for food and hide. Once tourism began to take hold in the South as a real industry, especially in Florida, the alligator took on iconic and even mythical status. "One of the most picturesque features of Florida has always been that uncouth and fierce-looking reptile called the alligator," wrote Nevin O. Winter in 1918. "Everybody who comes down here to the peninsula has an ambition to see one in the wild." Seminole Indians wrestled alligators for show. Alligator souvenirs and mascots often took what people feared-a sharp-toothed predator-and made it into something cute and cuddly. Alligator-themed songs were recorded and released, including "See You Later Alligator" by Bill Haley and His Comets. Hollywood into created alligator-themed movies such as Alligator People. Alligators were also reportedly kept in the White House under two presidencies. And perhaps the most unusual alligator story was one that helped to nab Ma Barker and her son Fred when they were hiding out along Florida's Lake Weir. America's Alligator examines the colorful and sometimes conflicted relationship our species has had with Alligator mississippiensis. Doug Alderson explores the country's rich alligator mythology and how it inspired various forms of art, stories, photography, tourism and even humor.
