Butrrola says the aquatic center wa nt s to i ncrea se employment of local youth. “W hat we would like to do is to have the [district] publ icize t he i n for mation a nd see if we ca n get ou r you ng employ ment goi ng aga in,” Bur rola sa id. “A nd hopefully bring up the revenue again.” S even pa r t - t i me po s i tions were not filled in the past several months because applicants lacked the proper certification, she pointed out. “We’ll happily publicize anything for the [recreation] centers we have,” Assistant Superintendent of Business Ser vices for GMCS Jvanna Hanks said. Burrola said the hiring has been slow this year for the first time since 2000. While the option to hire a trainer from Albuquerque is

available, Burrola said they will not be able to come to Gallup and help with certification training unless there are at least 10 applicants to train. “We also have to take into consideration the [local] students and adults. Sometimes we don’t get them to apply for the positions,” she added. Ha nks suggested using student interns for the positions. She pointed out that some of the district’s College and Career Readiness students who want to enter the medical field, will need and benefit from CPR and resuscitation training - the same training required to become a lifeguard. “On t he weekends a nd evenings, they could fill in,” Hanks said. “We’ve got a lot of intelligent young men and women in our district.” Using student interns to

fill the positions could create a continuous stream of trained lifeguards if they are able to offer this opportunity to the College and Career Readiness students, Hanks added. Burrola said she handles CPR and first aid training for the aquatic center. She added once their current lifeguard receives certification in January, they will be able to train lifeguards in-house again. Hanks said she would pass the idea onto the College and Career Readiness director, because she thinks this program could potentially benefit multiple parties. “It’s definitely not a talk, we are walking the walk,” Hanks said. “We’ve got students district-wide in career pathways at every single one of our high schools now.”

School board talks about study for new buildings at Red Rock, Tohatchi PROPOSAL FOR TOHATCHI SCHOOL TO USE TRADITIONAL NAME By Cody Begaye Sun Correspondent


he Gallup- McKinley County Schools Board of Education closed their regular meeting Oct. 28 by discussing whether to pursue a feasibility study and seek funding to construct new school buildings for Red Rock Elementary School and Tohatchi High School. Mike Hyatt, GMCS superintendent, said the process of building a school is lengthy and the board gets involved when it is time to secure the vendors and oversee the master plans. “We’re at a turning point with Red Rock and Tohatchi High School,” Hyatt said. As part of a feasibility study, the district examines the current conditions of existing school buildings and evaluates how that current building might look as a new building or with new amenities. “That process [opportunity] is coming on us quickly,” Hyatt said. “This would be building two schools at one time, potentially, which takes resources, time, and management.” The study comes in the wake of fi nishing work on Thoreau Elementary School this year, Hyatt added. The study would t a ke pl a ce by t he end of February 2020. Hyatt said they

D i s t . 3 B oa rd Member Priscilla Manuelito brought up an issue the board could address with building a new high school at Tohatchi, which is using the proper Navajo word for Tohatchi. “I know the traditiona l name [Tohatchi] was one that bilagáanas [Caucasian people]

couldn’t pronounce, so they couldn’t say Tohatchi in Navajo, which is Tó Haachi,” Manuelito said. “That is the proper name for Tohatchi.” If the district gets a new school bu i lt at Toh a t ch i, Manuelito said she would like to use the proper name for the community.

“I think we owe that to the community of Tohatchi, that we also help our children revitalize their language and say it properly for our elders who named this community, years and years ago,” Manuelito said. The feasibility study was approved by the board with a 3–0–0 vote.

School board hopeful has baggage

Gov. Lujan Grisham targets violent suspects Staff Reports

Staff Reports


bench warrant has been issued against a former candidate for the Gallup-McKinley County School Board. According to New Mexico court records, a bench warrant was issued on Oct. 25 by Grants Magistrate Judge Johnny Valdez after Olin Kieyoomia failed to show up for a hearing. Kieyoomia, who lost to Kevin Mitchell in the Nov. 5 school board election, had been given a citation for driving on a suspended license. He pleaded not guilty to the charge and was scheduled to have a hearing on the matter Oct. 25. The only record of

a DWI charge against Kieyoomia is from Feb. 2007. He was also charged with careless driving and resisting arrest in that same incident. A year later, he entered a no contest plea to the DWI charge and the other two charges were dismissed. Kieyoomia was given probation and ordered to do community service, which he completed in March 2008. But problems arose with the probation, and a hearing was scheduled for which he failed to show up. Then an arrest warrant was issued. Five bench warrants were issued over the next year and it appears the matter was finally dropped in 2013, because the jurisdiction lapsed.

S Olin Kieyoomia His driver’s license was apparently suspended at some point since he was cited in 2014 for driving on a suspended license. This was dismissed in Feb. 2015, when a witness failed to show up at the hearing.

ANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Oct. 29 ordered the creation of a team of New Mexico law enforcement officers to locate and arrest hundreds of fugitives charged with violent crimes. The Fugitive Apprehension Unit, established through an executive order, will consist of at least seven state police officers and at least seven New Mexico Corrections Department staff members. The Department of Public Safety secretary can also request that municipal police officers and county sheriff’s deputies join the unit as needed, according to the order, which specifies requisite authority must be obtained from those government agencies. The New Mexico Administrative Office of the District Attorneys has identified more than 1,600 outstanding bench warrants for people charged

w ith v io lent crimes. The unit is responsible for locating and arresting those individuals charged with violent crimes who have failed to appear for Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham judicial proceedings or who have outstanding bench warrants. Unit members will confer with local law enforcement and judiciary officials to identify qualifying individuals to locate and arrest those persons. In 2018, according to FBI data, New Mexico had the nation’s second-highest violent crime rate. Public Safety Secretary Mark Shea, New Mexico State Police Chief Tim Johnson and unit members will make monthly reports to the governor documenting the unit’s efforts.

ose Ocampo moved to the United States from Nicaragua as a child in 1980 after his family was granted political asylum. After a tour of duty in the U.S. Marine Corps and a few years at the University of New Mexico, he set his sights on being an auto mechanic and eventually opening his own shop. He graduated from the Universal Technical Institute in Phoenix and moved to Santa Fe to work in a friend’s auto repair shop until he was ready to go solo. Having his own business “was just something I wanted to do,” Ocampo said. After reaching that milestone at the age of 24, his next goal was to buy

his own building, which would increase the value of his business and give him a tangible asset he could sell in the future. Ocampo heard about The Loan Fund, a nonprofit lender that works with startups and veteran- owned small businesses that often don’t meet the lending criteria of a traditional bank. In 2013, with a loan from The Loan Fund, Ocampo moved his business into a new building on Siler Lane.

OPINIONS Stop obsessing over your muffi n top By Melissa Martin Guest columnist


es, it happens to the best of us. Aging often brings on the muffi n top. That jiggly piece of stomach that is squishy and squeezy. Also called belly fat, waistline flab, or roly-poly guacamole. Tight pants accentuate the tummy roll. Body-hugging shirts highlight the puffy pouch. The spare tire in the middle gets a lot of flack. “Any woman can get a muffi n top. But women are more likely to gain excess belly weight – especially deep inside the belly – as they go through perimenopause and into menopause, when their menstrual cycle ends. That’s because as estrogen levels drop, body fat is redistributed from the hips, thighs, and buttocks (where it used to be stored as a fuel reserve for breastfeeding) to the abdomen,” according to an article on WebMD. Melting the muffi n top is hard work for oldsters. Our metabolism slows down in the senior years and our bones,

muscles and joints grumble at us. Forget the latest sad fad diet. Forget empty promises from diet supplement manufacturers. For get pi l l s and potions. Ye s , w e ca n focus Melissa Martin on stomach hea lt h wh i le not becoming obsessed with our belly bulge. Here’s a mantra: “The fat on my stomach protects my vital organs. I will honor my stomach fat while working to make it healthier.” Muffin Top: A Love Story is an award-winning movie about a wife whose husband dumps her for a thinner woman. It’s a 2014 body-image romantic comedy about accepting your muffi n top stomach. And it’s belly-laugh funny. See the trailer at muffi ntopmovie.com.


Media exposure can influence body image over time by sending a message about what it means to have an ideal body shape, size, and weight. This exposure can place pressure on individuals to attain the thin, attractive ideal depicted in the media. For women, this ideal is usually composed of being slender and attractive; and for men, the ideal includes being tall, lean, muscular, and masculine. It is common for people to begin to measure themselves against these unrealistic ideals and determine that they have come up short. Negative body image, or body dissatisfaction, may result when an individual feels a strong pull to live up to this standard, or internalizes this standard of beauty and body image. Body image concern may range from minor discontentment or low self-esteem, to depression, or anxiety. For eating disorder information: mirrormirror.org. At the end of life, did anyone ever lament, “I wished I’d worked harder on my muffi n top?” No. So stop obsessing over your jelly- belly. Stop saying hurtful words to your ouch-pouch.

From movie,”Muffin Top: A Love Story” Yoga pants and a long shirt can cover the wiggle-jiggle area quite well. It’s



The Frosty Full Moon occurs Nov. 12. According to folklore, beavers would finish their preparations for winter under the light of this moon. Madame G recommends you do the same. Take the time to put your house in order both physically and spiritually. This will mean different things for different people. Then enjoy the benefits of winter including hygge. (Pronounced: HYOO-gə ): a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.22)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Focus on yourself Aries. Stop trying to control all situations and learn to accept the faults of others. Yours is not the only way to live. Do what is best for you and your family. Don’t get caught up in petty squabbles and learn to forgive. The heart of the angry fool is not aspirational. Be more!

The only REAL danger is in not getting started. If you work slowly who cares? The point is to put your foot toward your goals and inch your way forward inch by bloody inch. It may take five minutes or five years, but the point is - you will get there. GO!

This is the world of the future. There is no other time but now. Stop looking to an unknown world to be perfect. Enjoy what you have. Live, laugh, and love! That’s all you really need to know. Take some quality time for yourself. Start with nourishing your body.

Life doesn’t get easier. You gain experience to navigate the waters. Don’t give up on yourself. Do you need more discipline? You don’t need to go it alone. Look for someone in your community with this trait and model it. They won’t be perfect, but neither are you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

It’s difficult to know what path to take. Your heart goes in many directions and you long for many paths. Your true heart belongs among many paths. It’s not something foreign. It’s within you. You’re the other half of your soul. When you fi nally learn this, you’ll experience peace and perhaps share this peace with others. Until then, live well.

Don’t give up on yourself or your friends. They need your level head and you need them. Would adding more soul to your goals keep you motivated? If you need clarity, this is a good time to hire a business coach or consultant to help you turn those creative visions into a workable plan.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Preparation is key. Put your head into the game and start fi nishing tasks as they come. Pick up after yourself and remember who you are. You can do anything you put your mind to and remember that you’re capable of more than you think. Be your greatest self. Do what you can. OPINIONS

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It’s never too late to try again, but be sure you’re trying for the right reasons. Don’t keep pushing toward some unknown entity because you’re too stubborn to quit. Take a break and breathe through the misgivings of your mind. This world is open to possibilities, if you keep trying to be your best self you will accomplish more. Good luck!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your heart is caring and generous. You’ve done so much for those around you. You’re loved. Don’t worry about failure. No one is watching or waiting for you to fail and if they are they’re no concern of yours. Most people are ready and willing to celebrate your work and life. The rest don’t matter.

Remember the only real fear is fear itself. Do your best, you’ve got this. There is a happy medium between showing up for others and self-care. And your innovative sign understands better than most that you can have fun while also being productive. Be sure to leave big gaps in your schedule for spontaneity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might fi nd yourself at the end of a very long road this week. Try not to get too confident, you aren’t home yet. The end of a challenge or project can always be the most draining and rewarding. It would serve you well to rest and remain positive. When one road ends, another one begins.

If you inexplicably feel drained in someone’s presence or guilty, or obligated for a reason you can’t explain, trust yourself and give yourself protection and space. This person or situation could be stealing your energy. Don’t try to satisfy this person or rectify the situation. Take care of yourself.

L i felong a n i m a l r ig ht s advocate Gregory Popovich is a Gold-Medal winner in Paris, France, a Special Award-holder in Monte Carlo, and a Grand Prix receiver in Moscow at multiple international festivals.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Doctor Sleepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; works as a horror ďŹ lm, carries the ghost of the original By Glenn Kay For the Sun

RATING: ď&#x201A;Ťď&#x201A;Ť OUT OF ď&#x201A;Ťď&#x201A;Ťď&#x201A;Ťď&#x201A;Ť RUNNING TIME: 151 MINUTES Talk about impossible acts to follow, Stephen Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1977 novel The Shining remains one of the most popular bestsellers in horror. And although director Stanley Kubrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1980 fi lm adaption may have had a few detractors during its initial release (mostly due to its icy approach and some significant changes made from the source material), it has grown ever more popular over the years, and is now considered a genuine classic of the genre. While sequels are commonplace these days, few expected a new novel from King devoted to the characters, nor another film nearly 40 years later to update audiences on the lives of the survivors. This is a difficult film to review, because I am one of those critics who genuinely adores the original and feels like any sor t of follow-up is doomed to failure. Alas, Doctor Sleep most certainly doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live up its predecessor. However, it could have been much worse and several elements work quite effectively. If one keeps their expectations in check and simply goes in

hoping for a decent horror picture, they may fi nd it delivering a few chills. In the years since the terrifying events at the Overlook Hotel, Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) has grown up, but is still traumatized. When the drifting protagonist arrives in a small northeastern town, a new acquaintance named Billy (Cliff Curtis) tries to help him fi nd his footing. Danny decides to live a more fulfilling life, taking a position at a hospice. He also forms a telepathic friendship with a young girl Abra Stone (Kyliegh Curran), who lives far away and has the same â&#x20AC;&#x153;shiningâ&#x20AC;? gift as he does, although in more powerful quantities. Unfortunately, there are many more with these powers and some are sinister. Rose the Hat (Rebecca Ferguson) and her gang are undead killers who use their powers to kidnap children, torture and drain them of their gift to extend their own lives. After the baddies target Abra, Danny must determine how he can help the girl survive the oncoming attack. Unfortunately, the story itself involves a few flashbacks to the original that have been reshot, not to mention some new bits involving several characters who have appeared in the previous fi lm. These bits involve some awkward recreations that appear artificial. Obviously, these performers WOLVERINE X4 SE ÂŽ

Following the events of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Shining,â&#x20AC;? Danny, now Dan Torrance (Ewan McGregor), remains traumatized. He meets a young girl with powers similar to his own and tries to protect her from a cult known as The True Knot, which preys on children with special powers in order to remain immortal. Photo Credit: Warner Brothers are doing their best impersonations, but at times they feel like little more than that. One supposes that this issue was unavoidable in order to tell the story, but one still gets the impression that a more subtle approach or even voice-overs featuring Shelley Duvall, Jack

Nicholson (or a good voice impersonator in the case of another character) might come across in a less jarring manner. The fi lm also takes some time to get going and finds itself cutting between three different stor ylines which slows the pacing down early

on. Again, this may be due to the screenwriters adapting and following the source material much more closely than the original film did. This feature also really wants

T h e M e r r i a m - We b s t e r Dictionary describes “wellspring” as originating before the 12th century from the Old English welspr y ng, which had the literal “spring” meaning. RMCHCS has taken that mea n i ng a nd applied it to capture the spirit of the center as a place where wellness grows and renewal begins. Whether the spring season or action of springing, it symbolizes life and moving forward as the center’s residents do. They leave behind addictions and begin new lives. “The WRC brings us full circle to our goal of recovery and wellness,” David Conejo, CEO, RMCHCS, said. “While g iv i ng up a ny a dd ict ion

They then receive treatment, job training and an opportunity to rejoin the community as a contributing member of Gallup. So far 690 have graduated.

Blu-ray/DVD Roundup for November 8, 2019 By Glenn Kay For the Sun Hel lo a nd welcome to another look at highlights arriving this week on Blu-ray and DVD. There’s a little mix of everything in this edition that includes big Hollywood productions, along with small, independent efforts. So, if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!

Big New Releases! Ambitio n - Th is inde pendent thriller involves a young v iolinist prepa r ing for a life-changing audition. However, when a suspicious death occurs, the musician begins to fear that she may be the next target. The lead starts to suspect her friends of the crime, as well as a mysterious new neighbor who has just moved in. She must determine who the responsible party is before she ends up dead. This picture is directed by New Line Cinema founder Robert Shaye and is making its debut on disc through Shout! Factory. It received a limited run at theaters a few weeks ago and there haven’t been any reviews posted yet. The cast includes Katherine Hughes, Jared Bankens and Dylan McNamara. The Art of Racing in the Rain - Based on the bestselling novel, this drama follows a n a spir ing For mula One racer whose life is narrated from the point of view of his pet dog. As the man meets his wife, gets married, has a child, begins his career, and goes through various joys and trials, the pooch offers his own analysis of the events and deciphers what it all means. More critics disliked the philosophies being relayed than enjoyed them. Still, most commented that it was clichéd, ridiculously sentimental and ultimately came across as false and manipulative. It stars Milo Ventimiglia, Amanda Seyfried, Kathy Baker, Martin Donovan, Gary Cole and Kevin Costner (as the voice of the dog). Boy Genius - A 12-yearold prodigy enrolls in high school, struggling to make new

chums. When h i s f r ie nd ly older brother is accused of t hef t a nd those around threaten to send him to boarding school, the lead becomes determined to use his brain in order to prove his sibling’s innocence. He enlists the help of fellow outcasts as well as eccentric adults, including a science teacher and a crime novelist. This independent comedy received a very limited release at cinemas about a month ago and is now hitting disc. Reviews were generally mixed. It features Miles Brown, Rita Wilson, Nora Dunn, Skylan Brooks and Zach Gilford. Cor porate Animals Corporate team-building exercises are poked fun at in this horror/ c o m e d y. A megalomaniac CEO decides t o d r a g her assistants and employees and do some spelunking in New Mexico. When they become trapped underground a nd have to wait for a rescue party, the angry group must fight the urge to turn on each other. Of course, they fail, and violence (as well as cannibalism) soon follows. The press didn’t find this effort all that amusing or scary. Demi Moore, Ed Helms, Jessica Williams and Karan Soni headline the feature. Fast & F u r i o u s Presents: Hobbs & Shaw - This spin-off of t he Fa st & Furious series follows two enemies, one a lawman and the other a criminal, who are forced into partnering when the world is threatened by a cyber-terrorist. Along the way, tensions and bickering arise between the leads when one of the heroes falls for the other’s sister (who also happens to be a secret agent). Notices were more positive than negative for the latest entry in this franchise. While the cast was likable, some

24 Friday November 8, 2019 • Gallup Sun

suggested that the story was so brainless and dopey that the movie felt like a missed opportunity. It features Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Cliff Curtis and Helen Mirren. T h e Kitchen - Set in the 1970s, this f lick fol low s t he w ives of a group of gangsters working out of Hell’s Kitchen. After the men are all arrested and sent to prison, their spouses decide to take over the criminal family business, learning on the fly how to deal with their competition and the FBI, using any means necessary. Unfortunately, reaction toward this drama was far-from-enthusiastic. The movie stars Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss, Domhnall Gleeson and James Badge Dale. Life Without Basketball - This documentary tells the story of Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir, a female college basketball player who, due to her religious beliefs, dressed in a hijab while competing on the courts. The honor student broke several records while playing in college for the University of Memphis, but found her professional career stalled after FIBA (the organization which governs the sport of basketball worldwide) refused to allow her to play in traditional garb. This documentary details the athlete life’s after the ruling and her attempts to start a non-profit organization to promote the game and help inspire youngsters to stay true to their beliefs. The doc has played a few festivals to positive response and is now debuting on disc. Live th e Stream: T h e Story of Joe Humphries - For Joe Humphries, f ly fishing is the most important thing in the entire world. This Pennsylvanian fisherman is also a conservationist, author and educator striving to keep the practice alive and teaching anyone who will listen to him express his enthusiasm for the sport. This documentary uses interviews with the 90-yearold legend, along with family, friends and acquaintances, to tell his life story, explain the

importance of keeping rivers clean and detail his fly-fishing techniques and the practices that he has learned over a lifetime. The fi lm played numerous fi lm festivals and has won some awards along the way. It is now being released straightto-disc so fi shing enthusiasts can catch up with it. Memory: The Origins of Alien - It has been 40 years since Alien hit cinema screens, introducing an iconic monster, spawning a franchise of fi lms and building a massive fan base. This documentary goes into exhaustive detail about how the concept for the original feature came to be, and how the movie itself was put together. Pouring through the unseen archives of screenwriter Dan O’Bannon and artist H.R. Giger, the project offers new insight into the sci-fi/ horror masterpiece. On the whole, critics liked what was presented to them. Ophelia Most know the name Ophelia from the Shakespeare play Hamlet. This take on t he ch a r a c ter tells the famous tale from her perspective. Set in Demark, the story follows her response to the events involving a young prince driven mad by the need for vengeance after his father is murdered by his uncle. This version details Ophelia’s struggle to choose between her boyfriend and the kingdom’s rulers. The press had a mixed reception to the picture. It stars Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts, Clive Owen, George MacKay and Tom Felton. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark - Based on the popular young adult book series, this horror anthology is set in 1968 and follows three friends who meet a mysterious drifter carrying a sinister notebook of terrifying stories…a text that transcends time. The kids read several of these tales, only to fi nd themselves a part of the story by the time they reached the climax. Overall, reviewers gave this creeper reasonable marks. The ca st includes Zoe Margaret Colletti, Michael Garza, Gabriel Rush, Austin Abrams and Dean Norris. Undercover Brother 2 - The

original Undercover Brother was an amusing little comedy starring Eddie Griffi n that was released in 2002. It was about a secret agent attempting to stop “The Man” and his syndicate (known as The Organization) from unleashing a hallucinogenic drug and turning the public into brainless zombies. This sequel of sorts picks up with the original lead and his brother being found frozen in a snow drift. Unfortunately, the younger brother is the only one of the pair whom rescuers are able to thaw out. As a result, the sibling is forced to take on “The Man” and another threat to the black community. This picture is debuting on disc and there are absolutely no reviews of it available at this time. It features Michael Jai White, Barry Bostwick, Jeff Daniel Phillips and Gary Owen. The Wrong Todd - This independent sci-fi /comedy tells the story of a man whose relatively happy life comes under attack from an unexpected visitor… his evil twin from a parallel universe. Specifically, the sinister arrival has designs on stealing the lead’s girlfriend, forcing the hero to try to convince his partner that he is the more suitable and valuable partner to spend her life with. This small feature has played a few fi lm festivals in Austin, Los Angeles and Rhode Island and has received some positive notices. The write-ups that have appeared online call the film a simple, but sweet and heartfelt examination of how we all need to change and adapt in relationships. Jesse Rosen, Anna Rizzo and Sean Carmichael headline the feature. Yinz Here’s another little production made on a shoestring in Pennsylvania. It has played a couple of festivals, but is also making its official debut on disc. According to the plot synopsis, it is about the lives of three upper class teenagers and how their world is turned completely upside down after an unexpected murder. Nothing else is known about


DVD/BLU-RAY | FROM PAGE 24 the picture at this time other than the fact that it is categorized as a thriller. There have been no official reviews. The cast includes Samuel H. Lev ine, Hailey Hansard and Teo Rapp-Olsson.

Blasts from the Past! It’s another busy week for classic and, well, not-so-classic titles receiving high defi nition upgrades. Arrow Video has a Special Edition Blu-ray of the thriller, Apprentice to Murder (1988). This fi lm is set during a sickness that is plaguing a community in the early 19th century. An investigation is undertaken by a young man and faith healer to find the cause of the outbreak. It stars Chad Lowe and Donald Sutherland. This disc includes a new 2K restoration of the fi lm, a fi lm critic audio commentary, a talk about religious horror cinemas with an expert in the field, an interview with the cinematographer and the make-up supervisor, as well as a trailer. Sounds like an interesting release. Kino has a large grouping of Blu-rays as well. First is the box set, Hit ch cock: B r i t i s h International Pictures Collection ( 1 9 2 7 - 1 9 31) which includes five movies made in the UK from early in the director’s career. Titles include the silent features The Ring (1927), The Farmer’s

Wife (1928), C h a mp a g n e (1928) and T he Manxman (1929), as well as one sound title, The Skin Game (1931). The set includes new scores for some of the pictures, archival audio interviews with Hitchcock, and fi lm historian commentaries on some of the fl icks. Additionally, Kino is releasing the US film-noir Naked Alibi (1954) with Sterling Hayden. It comes with a fi lm historian commentary as well as a trailer. The distributor is also making available the more recent high school-set drama, New Port South (2001), as well as the UK-made atom bomb thriller, Seven Days to Noon (1950). They’ve also got the Hollywood fi lm-noir, Woman in Hiding (1950). The fi rst two Blu-rays include trailers, while the third features a fi lm historian commentary track. Budget f r iend ly M i l l Creek Enter ta in ment ha s decided to get on the holiday bandwagon and put out the very cheesy Santa With Muscles  (1996) on Blu-ray. Hulk Hogan leads the cast of this critically reviled comedy about an evil millionaire on the run, who disguises himself as Santa Claus, takes a knock to the head and awakens to believe that he is the real figure. The cast includes a young Mila Kunis, as well as Garrett Morris, Clint Howard and Ed Begley, Jr. It may provide some inexpensive high definition entertainment for bad movie fans.     B elieve it or not, Galaxy Quest (1999) was released two decades ago and Paramount is celebrating with its “20th
