Jarhead 2: Field of Fire

by ,
War Movies

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

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

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

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

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.

Flat Top 1952 American war movie

War Movies

It is sort of tradition with war movies that when the US Army, US Navy or any of their military formation give their blessing to a production (together with access to the military equipment) they are somehow get involved in the tiny changes to the script. Usually this means a disaster for the movie, because soldiers are not good writers, not to mention they keep telling the same story again and again... Unfortunately Flat Top is not a exception.

Code Name: Emerald 1985 American war movie

In 1944 the war was in stalemate on the western front - the Allied offensive in Italy got stuck in the mountainous terrain, the strategic bombers were attacking the targets deep into enemy terrain, but for both sides it was obvious that the invasion on continental Europe is the next step. Germans built the Atlantic Wall from Norway to Spain, so there were plenty of spots where the attack could start. The most obviously was Calais, since it was the narrowest part of the English Channel, but British spent last year on different disinformation schemes.

Oh! What a Lovely War 1969 war movie

War Movies

World War 1 was one of the bloodiest and most senseless conflicts in human kind history - the war started for no better reason than having a good war again, the weapons used were more deadly and cruel than ever, the 4 years and millions of dead soldiers changed absolutely nothing. So what is a better way to tell that story than through a musical?

Flight of the Intruder 1991 American war movie

War Movies

Each time American war movie gets the backing of the army (or to be exact of any branch of the armed forces) each time the effect is complete disaster. The reason? When army gives you cooperation that includes all the vehicles you will need, all the stand-ins that you need, even expensive locations that you need. The price? The script will most likely be altered to fit the views of the army, no matter if they make a lot of sense or not. Flight of the Intruder is another example of such cooperation, but with a little twist...

Band of Brothers 2001 World War 2 mini-series

After the success of Saving Private Ryan it seemed that it was the ultimate production that set the standards that can’t be made beaten. And that was true, many directors later tried to make their war movies similar to Saving Private Ryan, f.e. Assembly, Enemy at the Gates or Fury, but none of them reached the same level of realism, the atmosphere and storytelling. At least until Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg did not come up with one better - Band of Brothers TV mini-series.
