And in them were the fathers of sons—and in them were the fathers of sons.

The Electric Grandmother (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5) was a made-for-TV movie from 1982, based on the short story "I Sing the Body Electric!" by Ray Bradbury.

Twilight Inspiration NOT Vampires

Gallery 1988's Twilight Zone Exhibit. The Twilight Zone was mostly well written, directed, and acted. It continues to inspire with a nice collection of art at Gallery 1988. It's also a record of whose who in television and cinema, with famously, William Shatner, Burgess Meredith, Carol Burnett, Buster Keaton, Dennis Hopper, Martin Landau, and many, many, more. Inspiration continues with repeats on television and a rumoured Blu-ray release in September 2010.

Gaza: The Killing Zone

A Dispatches documentary Gaza: The Killing Zone shows the shocking reality of seemingly ordinary Palestinians caught in the crossfire between Hamas and Israeli forces. Feels almost like a sci-fi movie about some fictional totalitarian regime. Hard to believe it's their everyday life. WARNING: contains scenes of graphic violence, which you may find disturbing.

War Zone

iFilm's War Zone has videos "purportedly shot, edited and submitted by U.S. and other coalition troops in Iraq and Afghanistan" as well as videos by "various insurgent or paramilitary groups." Via the Washington Post, which highlights hardcore helicopter ballet choreographed to AC/DC's "Thunderstruck," a Mahdi Army PR video, and what "appears to be fornication in a convertible." The New York Times says "it's hard to say which are scarier: the clips themselves or the advertisements that run with them." [Some clips NSFW.]
