Published on January 22nd, 2013 | by Chris

When Mike Clarke (Andrew Keegan) and his co-pilot "Twickers" (Hugh O'Conor) get shot down and forced to land in neutral Ireland, just days before the end of the war, you'd think his troubles would be over,... Read More

Submarine Command (1951)

Submarine Command (1951)

Published on January 21st, 2013 | by Chris

I found Submarine Command to be an interesting little movie.  Partly because of the angle they approach from, and partly because of the subtle propagandism going on within.  Not a particularly great movie, but interesting nonetheless... Read More

The Square Peg (1958)

The Square Peg (1958)

Published on January 17th, 2013 | by Chris

I fear this review will be short and to the point, because there just isn't a whole lot I can think to say about 1958's The Square Peg.  A comedy starring Norman Wisdom and Edward Chapman,... Read More

Published on January 13th, 2013 | by Chris

The Objective was originally part of my Horror-themed War Movies list from back in October, but I was bored and I figured what the hell... so here we are.  Actually it turned out to be not... Read More

Zero Dark Thirty (2012)

Zero Dark Thirty (2012)

Published on January 11th, 2013 | by Chris

Is Zero Dark Thirty a war movie?  I was hoping it would turn out to be that way, but alas, I'm afraid I just can't place it in this particular genre.  I'd have to say it... Read More

Final Mission (1994)

Published on January 6th, 2013 | by Chris

Remember the 90's? When everything was going to go "cyber" and "virtual reality" was going to take over and we were all going to walk around with headsets and goggles and stuff?  Yeah, well, then they... Read More

Kings Go Forth (1958)

Kings Go Forth (1958)

Published on January 3rd, 2013 | by Chris

"All's fair in love and war," right?  Kings Go Forth turned out to be such an odd little picture.  I mean, not only is it an obvious "star" picture, with Frank Sinatra, Tony Curtis, and the... Read More

Published on November 30th, 2012 | by Chris

The Huffington Post has a list of what they think are the best Navy movies of all time (of all time!)  I've not seen a couple of these yet, and I take issue with a few... Read More

BBC History of World War II: Hiroshima (2006)

BBC History of World War II: Hiroshima (2006)

Published on November 28th, 2012 | by Chris

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Why?  Because there's really not much to say. This BBC documentary on the US Atom bomb drops on Japan which ended World War II is, of course,... Read More

Red Dawn (2012)

Red Dawn (2012)

Published on November 27th, 2012 | by Chris

I so wanted to pan Red Dawn as another lame-brained reboot of an older movie that didn't need to be made.  But I have to hang my head in shame and just mumble, "yeah, ok, so... Read More

Lawrence of Arabia (1962, Blu Ray)

Published on November 26th, 2012 | by Chris

If you look up the word "epic" in the dictionary, I imagine one of the definitions would be 1952's Lawrence of Arabia. In case you've not read my original review of Lawrence of Arabia, I suggest... Read More
