Red Dawn 1984 war movie

by ,
War Movies

Classic movies are not always those that are very old, those that are made with greatest skill, had the best screenplay or the best cast. Classics are those movies that after the years are still attractive and still are fondly remembered. And Red Dawn is one of such movies - it can hardly be called a masterpiece, it can hardly be called a deep and complexed story, but it was good enough so many people still enjoy it over 30 years later.

Windtalkers 2002 war movie

Once Nicolas Cage was considered to be actor with great potential, but with time the productions he chose to join were... deeply concerning to put it nicely. From infamous Wicker Man to slightly bizarre Left Behind his career seems to be a constant roller-coaster of bad choices and really bad choices and glimpse of hope from time to time. Windtalkers was one of the production that he actually should not be ashamed of... Comparing.

War Movies

World War 2 had many faces and inspired many movies - some of them showed the most spectacular events of the war, but The Caine Mutiny is not one of them - here we have the other type of war movies, the drama (almost chamber drama) that takes place on one of many warships on the Pacific away from the glorious battles, but not away from the drama of the war itself.

War movie based on true events that depicts medieval battle with Brian Cox, James Purefoy and Paul Giamatti - sounds great, right? Of course it does - there were very little medieval times war movies lately, not to mention good ones.

American Major Pike is one of the Overlords, high rank Allied officers with detailed knowledge of the upcoming landing operation in Normandy. While he is visiting Lisbon in 1944 German intelligence tries to kidnap him, but what they have planned for him is not senseless beating in the dark cellar.

Jarhead 2: Field of Fire

It often makes me wonder how direct-to-video projects (like Company of Heroes, Battle Force or Jarhead 2) are able to gather enough money to be actually filmed. I mean if you use title of popular computer game in title it means that you have the gimmick to gather some viewers, but if someone thought he would actually make money on it... no comment.

Winter in Wartime 2008 war movie

War Movies

Holland in World War 2 was countries with rather complicated situation - during German occupation people were showing different approaches to the new reality, which lead to personal dramas. There were those, who sympathized with Allies and were helping the resistance, there were those, who supported the Nazi ideas and were actively helping the occupant and there were those, who were ready to compromise their own views and simply survive the horror. In such reality nothing is simple and nothing is obvious - your neighbour can be secret informant for Nazis or Allied agent.

Dr. Strangelove 1964 classic anti-war movie

War Movies

Most of the war movies are actually anti-war movies - by showing how horrible the war really is they try to remind us why war isn’t the solution we are looking for and should be used as a really last resort. But all war movies about Cold War were in fact anti-war movies - it was the time people began to realize that nuclear weapon changed the face of the world and nuclear war in fact will be the last, because the won’t be anyone left...

Saints and Soldiers 2003 American war movie

War Movies

In December 1944 Hitler put the fate of his nation in last bold operation - all the offensive units Wehrmacht had available were put together to push towards Antwerp in Belgium in order to break the flood of Allied forces to the continent. Since the German fuel supplies were really stretched the spearhead of the offensive through Ardennes could not waste time or effort on dealing with prisoners, which lead to SS-handled massacres in Malmedy and other Belgian villages.

Too Late the Hero 1970 American war movie

by ,
War Movies

During late 1960s and early 1970s American war movies took a turn to new direction - Hollywood seemed to be more interested in adventure flicks (in style of Italian low-budget productions) rather than stories based on true events. Films like Too Late the Hero or The Dirty Dozen had more in common with westerns than classic war movies.
