Fury (2014)

Published on February 6th, 2015 | by Chris

I really, really, wanted to like Fury.  As the story goes, my grandfather drove a tank on D-Day and then through Europe up until and after the end of the war.  I thought it'd be nice... Read More

Jarhead 2: Field of Fire

Jarhead 2: Field of Fire (2014)

Published on August 17th, 2014 | by Chris

The original Jarhead back in 2005 was a dull, lifeless, waste of a couple of hours.  Thankfully, Jarhead 2: Field of Fire, only shares the franchise name in common.  Actually, I really liked Jarhead 2, once... Read More


A Field in England

A Field in England (2013)

Published on June 2nd, 2014 | by Chris

What the hell did I just watch?  No, really, I mean it. I just watched A Field in England, and I have no idea what just happened. None. There was this guy, and he met some... Read More

One Year Later

Published on April 16th, 2014 | by Chris

Phantom (2013)

Phantom (2013)

Published on July 16th, 2013 | by Chris

Phantom was not as bad as I was expecting, but not as good as I had hoped.  That's the extremely abridged short version. We find ourselves in the Soviet Union in the late 1960's.  Captain Demi... Read More

WarMovieBlog on Shore Leave

Published on April 24th, 2013 | by Chris

It's true.  I'm taking a break from war movies for a while.  I may still watch one on occasion, but every so often I have to take a break and "resensitize" as it were.  After so... Read More

Cottage to Let (1941)

Cottage To Let (aka Bombsight Stolen, 1941)

Published on March 22nd, 2013 | by Chris

Alright.  I'm not even sure how to explain this movie.  So this review will be shorter and probably more confusing than most.  I'm hesitant to call Cottage to Let a "War movie," for obvious reasons, but... Read More

Iron Sky (2012)

Published on March 13th, 2013 | by Chris

(Speaking of war movie/scifi crossovers...) I realize I'm going to get raked over the coals for this, but I thought Iron Sky was a terrible movie.  Terrible, and everyone involved knows it, and because of that,... Read More
