Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO research is still trying to verify three sasquatch sightings in Moricetown. “Since I got the initial call, ...
This movie, directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future trilogy, Forrest Gump, The Polar Express) is really well-done and well-acted, done in the same style as TPE, the CGI animation which reads the actors playing the roles and makes the animation very lifelike. We all know the legend of this story-Beowulf (Ray Winstone) goes to assist King Hrothgar (Oscar Winner Anthony Hopkins) to battle the evil monster Grendel (Crispin Glover). He meets the Queen, Wealtheow (Oscar Winner Robin Wright Penn) and falls in love with her, but she belongs to Hrothgar. He battles and defeats the monster, but Beowulf's credibility is questioned by the King's most trusted advisor Unferth (Oscar Nominee John Malkovich). However, this is not totally unjustified, as Beowulf is prone to telling tall tales. Beowulf's closest ally is Wiglaf, and he and Beowulf work together to defeat the evil monster. Then, the hero confronts Grendel's mother (Oscar Winner Angelina Jolie) who seduces Beowulf and they have a dragon child, who later comes back to haunt Beowulf and his men. Hrothgar commits suicide, making Beowulf King, but not before a golden drinking horn is presented to Beowulf and he admits he did not kill Grendel's mother, and he does eventually kill the dragon, but loses his own life. I would give this one 4 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed it.
The Monsterquest crew returns to Snelgrove Lake to investigate the attacks on a remote cabin. Doug Hajicek and Jeff Meldrum are part of the crew. The Sasquatch is 7-10 feet tall, the size of a Kodiak bear, with 17-Inch feet and long arms. There is a short recap of the initial episode from last year. The first segment seems to be recapping the previous Sasquatch Attack episode, leaving the viewer wishing they would get to the new material. Apparently further DNA samples from the last trip to Snelgrove were sent to another lab. Dr. Gregory Bambenek is also along to investigate, as is Dr. Esteban Sarmiento. Doug Hajicek's son Blaine is also along, as they set up a camera system-infrared, camera traps and cameras inside the cabin. They also set up a blind to make observations and use camera systems. The infrared cameras are installed on the eaves of the cabin so as to not alert an animal to their presence. The blind is set up inside the cabin. The attacks apparently continued into 2007 on the cabin. Dave Regel was a member of the fishing party staying at the cabin, and they were the target of things being thrown against the cabin. Apparently, a hair was found on Regel's rod case, and it has been sent for analysis. Microscopist Jason Beckert is commissioned to examine and identify the hair. The first night at the cabin reveals nothing. Bambenek has put out radio transmitters contained in between pheromone chips. Sarmiento determines that there is a good deal of food sources in the surrounding area of the cabin. One technique being utilized is gorilla scent. More extensive DNA testing is being done on the Snelgrove Lake samples. A molecular biologist is doing the examination, and says even DNA a century old can be examined and amplified.The Dr. is using a different technique than that used by Dr. Curt Nelson. A local bush pilot brings news of a sighting nearby to the cabin, 115 miles away. The creature may be following a blueberry supply. The WIlliam Roe story is recreated very well by the MQ team. After 8 days, the float plane pilot gives the team information about the sighting at the location 115 miles away at Grassy Narrows. The team decides to move there. The hair collected at Snelgrove is being examined by Dr. Beckert at Microtrace, while the team at the cabin heads to Grassy Narrows to interview the witness (the place is an Ojibwa reservation). Helen Pahpasay and her mother see a large black hairy creature walking down the road, 8 feet tall, close to a blueberry patch. Helens mother refuses to ever return to that area. Randy Fobister, Helen's brother, examines the area and finds where sticks are broken off. Footprints were also found in the area, but the cast shows six toes, which Meldrum believes may have been made by a bear. However, after examining a bear paw print compared to the print, it is difficult for Meldrum to determine if the print is of a bear or of something else. There appears to be a flattened area made by a large animal of some sort, but no determination as to what made it. The hair found at the cabin is deternined to be a human head hair, bleached,
and the DNA samples are determined to be fungi and bacteria, with no animal or primate DNA. It could also mean the sample is too degraded to amplify DNA positively.

SASQUATCH ATTACK IISomething has been attacking a remote cabin in Northern and it may have left behind a blood trail. DNA analysis suggested that the creature is a non-human primate. Now a follow up test will confirm or deny this, and the results could change history. Meanwhile, a new expedition, outfitted with the most advanced surveillance and detection equipment, will set up camp at the cabin and wait for the creature's imminent return.

Ebu Gogo, the Grandmother who eats anything.
First evidence came to light in the 1990'S, a tem of Dutch and Indonesian scientists.
Mike Morwood, archaeologist, examined ancient tools found by the Dutch and Indonesian teams. Tools that ancient should not exist on Flores.
A natural wall would keep animals and humans from getting to the island.
Liang Bua (cold cave) was a limestone cave where Morwood and his team searched for more evidence of the ancient toolmakers.
Bert Roberts of the University of Wollongong
A tiny arm bone was discovered 20 feet down in the cave.
Another year of digging yielded a possibly human tooth.
A prehuman skeleton was also found, suggesting a female child which turned out to be a miniature adult.
The skeleton was labeled LB1.
Fragments of others, 12 in all, were found. Pygmy elephant bones were also found.
Expert in paleoanthropology Peter Brown examined these remains and was taken aback.
The Homo Floresiensis has a smaller brain than a chimpanzee, and certainly smaller than modern humans.
Carbon dating was done on the remains (actually luminiscence dating) to determine that they were less than 30,000 years old.
Radiocarbon dating was also used, via Chris Turney, an expert in the field. This was done in an effort to give an absolute approximate date-10,000-12,000 years old!!!
There is a possibility of the hobbits being related to Hominins.
Ralph Holloway of Columbia University is skeptical of the Hobbits being a new species.
Tekeu Jacob asked to examine the hobbit, basically taking it away from the scientists.
He determined that it was most likely a modern human pygmy.
He eventually returned the bones, but the excavations at Liang Bua were suspended.
The skeptics offered that the small brain was the result of pathology which retards the growth of the brain (microcephaly).
Anthropologist Dean Falk is examining the Hobbit's and the skull of an individual who had the pathology to compare to see if indeed the disease could apply to the hobbits. The two brains are found to be completely different.
Paleoanthropologist Bill Jungers examined the skeleton to see if the pathology might affect the skeleton.
James Phillips of the Field Museum of Natural History also discusses the brain being the important element.
Mark Moore has examined the tools found in the cave, and is skeptical that they were the ones who made the stone tools.
