In 1994 the civil war in Rwanda has changed - the Hutu militia took the matters in their own hands and solved the tension between them and Tutsi in worst possible way - by genocide. Civilians were trapped in country turning into chaos, while the world just watched it on TV, not wanting to get involved, even to save the civilians from being killed on the streets.
What is the best way to present a thriller about genuine danger that could end all life on Earth within hours? Yes, you guessed it - by using Matthew Broderick as boy-genius and home-grown hacker and Ally Sheedy as girl-next-door, who for some unknown reason decides to hang around with him. Well, it wouldnâ€™t be my personal choice, but obviously back in 1983 this was the best that Hollywood could do.
In 1960s and 1970s Italian cinema was full of innovative and challenging creators, but on the other side of the scope there were productions like The War Devils - cheap, simple and cheap. The magic formula was simple - take script of another movie, simplify it, add scenes taken from another movies, throw in some meaningless dialogues and some action scenes and voila - the Italian pulp dish is ready to be served.
Alfred Hitchcock gained his reputation of master of mystery by finding some tense atmosphere where it would be hard to find it. Lifeboat, similar to The Lady Vanishes, is shining example of such approach to story-telling - there were many stories about about people stranded in the middle of the ocean, but Hitchcock added an element to that changed everything - one of the survivors is actually an enemy.
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.
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.
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.
