USS Seaviper (2012)

Published on October 9th, 2012 | by Chris

Much like Jarhead, there’s about an hour and a half of my life I’ll never get back.  USS Seaviper is probably the finest example of a movie about nothing.  It’s the Seinfeld of war movies.  Except ... Read More

Published on September 20th, 2012 | by Chris

Just don’t.  I should put this in with the Worst War Movie Challenge, but that would mean I’d actually have to finish it.  I made it about 20 minutes before I just couldn’t take any more... Read More

The Last Escape (1970)

The Last Escape (1969)

Published on September 12th, 2012 | by Chris

I’m on the fence on this one. (That happens a lot doesn’t it)… The problem with The Last Escape isn’t so much that its a bad movie, because its not, really.  It’s just not that good.  A ... Read More

Iron Eagle (1986)

Published on September 10th, 2012 | by Chris

So.  As part of the Worst War Movies Challenge I figured I’d pick up one of the old standbys.  1986′s Iron Eagle.  The height of “yeah, I don’t think so” movies from the 1980s.  I know ... Read More

OK, so after watching the completely awful Air Strike, a thought occurred to me.  There has got to be a list of the worst war movies ever made, right? Well, actually there are several.  Unfortunately 95% ... Read More

Behind Enemy Lines 2: Axis of Evil (2006)

Published on September 6th, 2012 | by Chris

Whew, that’s better.  Behind Enemy Lines 2: Axis of Evil isn’t a masterpiece of modern cinema.  But then again it doesn’t try to be.  It is what it is, and that’s a kick ass thrill ride ... Read More

Anzio (1968)

Published on August 27th, 2012 | by Chris

When Anzio started, I actually considered turning it off.  I was greeted with a completely groovy and highly 1965 Tom Jones-ish intro song.  If that wasn’t enough, it was followed with an opening scene of a ... Read More
