News: OUTLAND (1981) Coming to Blu-ray in July
The plot is High Noon on Io, with Connery as a Marshall stationed at a mining colony, who finds himself pitted against both the corruption of the company running the colony, and hired assassins imported to kill him. Even though the story is familiar, I like the production design and miniature effects a great deal, and the cast does a solid, professional job with the material, bringing a lot of humanity and conviction to their stock roles.
You can preorder the Blu-ray (currently priced around $15) at Amazon: Outland [Blu-ray]
