Battle of Britain (1969)

Published on March 16th, 2007 | by Chris

  1969's Battle of Britain is a pretty academic and mechanical look at the escalation of German bombing attacks in 1940 which we all know as "the blitz."  An all-star cast consisting of such names as... Read More

M*A*S*H (1970)

M*A*S*H (1970)

Published on March 9th, 2007 | by Chris

So is M*A*S*H a "war movie" or an "anti-war movie?"  It's been called both, and I think they're right on both counts.  Robert Altman's 1970 masterpiece which spawned the spinoff TV series comes at you from... Read More

Pearl Harbor (2001)

Published on February 8th, 2007 | by Chris

December 7, 1941.  A date which will live in infamy. Well it should anyway, its unfortunate that the Bruckheimer/Bay team got a hold of it and turned it into an unconvincing heart-string-tugging love story with a... Read More

Tora! Tora! Tora! (1970)

Tora! Tora! Tora! (1970)

Published on February 6th, 2007 | by Chris

Tora! is the quintessential model for a pseudo-documentary war movie, painstakingly attempting to chronicle the events (on both sides) leading up to the infamous 1941 sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Is this an action-packed thriller that... Read More
