True History: Pearl Harbor
The attack on Pearl Harbor has been on-screen in three feature films, each of them entirely different in tone, substance, and their care for historical accuracy.

British Military
War films featuring the British military.

The Water Diviner
Russel Crowe's directorial debut is a first World War saga about a father searching for the bodies of his dead sons who died at Gallipoli - though strong performances can't save the meandering picture from aspirations that it never achieves.

Tora! Tora! Tora!
'Tora! Tora! Tora!' is a strange film - a joint production between the U.S. and Japan aimed at re-creating the Pearl Harbor attack. Unfortunately, it fails to add up to much.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
The latest in the Mission Impossible franchise suffers from having its impossible missions made lame by impossible product sourcing, imagined techno-fixes, and apparently endless resources despite Cruise's Hunt supposedly being on the run.

United States Army
War movies featuring the U.S. Army.

The Pianist
A review of Roman Polanski's 'The Pianist,' one of the greatest World War II films made. A superb tale of solitary survival.

Review of Mel Gibson's 'The Patriot'
Review of Mel Gibson's 'The Patriot,' a film that could quite possibly be, one of the worst of Gibson's career.

The Kill Team
A compelling, horrifying, and fascinating documentary about 'The Kill Team,' a group of real-life American soldiers that began killing innocent Afghans -- and the solider who tried to stop them.

The Unknown Known
'The Known Unknown' is a fascinating glimpse into the mind of Donald Rumsfeld, George Bush's Secretary of Defense and one of the architects of the Iraq War. It's a glimpse, that's also a bit frightening.

The Last Days in Vietnam
An amazing documentary that details the last days in Vietnam, as a skeleton crew of Americans at the embassy struggle to rescue as many south Vietnamese as possible...while also escaping with their own lives.

Lions for Lambs
'Lions for Lambs' tells the story of Rangers in trouble in Afghanistan, and the politician who made the policy to put them there. It's is a preachy, condescending, movie with a message the film thinks is shocking, but which everyone in the audience will already assume.

Men of Honor
'Men of Honor' is the story of Carl Brashear, the first African-American Navy diver. Unfortunately, the heroic Brashear is given a pretty awful film.

Hamburger Hill
'Hamburger Hill' is a classic and under-appreciated Vietnam war movie.

Green Zone
'Green Zone' is a weirdly fictionalized film about a very real life subject matter. It's also, for the political and action thriller it's trying to be, relatively light on its feet.

Good Morning Vietnam
'Good Morning Vietnam' is a sappy, trite story that over relies on what the film believes are Robin Williams irresistible charms.

Good Kill: The First War Movie About Drones
'Good Kill' is the first war movie about drones and the pilots who fly them.

Review of 'Fury'
'Fury' is an extremely violent, intense action film starring Brad Pitt as a tank commander leading the crew of a Sherman tank behind enemy lines in the final days of World War II.

Gallipoli
'Gallipoli' tells the first story of war that likely ever existed: The story of a young man, caught up in nationalistic fever, excited by the idea of battle and war, only to find that reality is more horrible than he could have possibly ever imagined.

Fort Bliss
'Fort Hood' is an earnest, if simple, story of a mother and soldier attempting to re-connect with her son after returning from Afghanistan. From sex assault to multiple deployments, this film attempts - and almost succeeds - at tackling every issue facing female troops.

The Best Big Monster Movies
The best big monster movies!

Why We Fight
A brilliant documentary that examines the rise of the military industrial complex and how this industry incentivizes U.S. policy makers towards war and military conflict.

Uncovered: The War on Iraq
This documentary focuses with a laser precision intensity on the Bush administration and their fraudulent claims of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The film carefully re-constructs the actions which led to war, including lying to the American people, and co-opting the media messaging.

Tropic Thunder
'Tropic Thunder,' a satire Vietnam war movie, about the filming of a bid budget Vietnam war movie, is inspired and brilliant...for about the first twenty minutes. After that though, the film begins to drag.

The Tillman Story
'The Tillman Story' is a great documentary that details the White House's lie about Pat Tillman's death, how the cover-up was initiated, and how one soldier, in death, was unwittingly turned into a propaganda set piece for the Bush administration.

Tigerland
'Tigerland' is a small, overlooked, but ultimately wonderful character study, firmly rooted in an era where the Army was falling apart, and soldiers were being shipped to fight and die in Vietnam.

Unbroken
'Unbreakable' tells the true story of Olympic runner Louis Zamperini and his survival as a bombardier, as a stranded survivor at sea, and ultimately, as a prisoner of war.

Welcome to Sarajevo
'Welcome to Sarajevo' takes great care to treat the viewer to all of war's awful secrets. Unfortunately, the film maintains a clinical detachment that never allows the viewer to emotionally invest in the film, or the horrors appearing on-screen. Essentially two hours of perpetual war crimes.

Zulu
Review of 'Zulu' a 1963 film starring Michael Caine that details the true life battle of a small isolated contingent of British soldiers that faced off against a 4,000 strong attack by Zulu tribesman.

Mad Max: Fury Road
'Mad Max: Fury Road' is the most intense, exhilarating, and exciting action film to come along in at least a decade. A five star action film!

The Best and Worst Mountaineering Action Movies
These are the best and the worst action films about men (and women) taking on mountains, high elevation, and avalanches.

Everest
Using some of the best cinematography ever brought to films, 'Everest' tells the story of the ill-fated 1996 climbing expedition to the top of Everest. It's thrilling, emotionally involving, and a fun time at the movies.

San Andreas
'San Andreas' is exactly what you think it is: Lots of destruction and good special effects accompanied by a weak plot and characters.

Dirty Wars
Jeremy Scahill, the author of

Citizen Four
The first documentary about Edward Snowden, filmed by Laura Poitras, one of the two journalists Snoweden first contacted and gave his revelations to, is fascinating, but it doesn't add much that someone who was glued to the television during the first leaks wouldn't know.

Review of Mel Gibson's 'Braveheart'
A review of Mel Gibson's Braveheart. It would be a great film if any of it was actually true.

Review of 'American Sniper'
'American Sniper' is a kinetic, fast-moving, and hugely entertaining film in the tradition of modern popular war movies like 'Lone Survivor' and 'Blackhawk Down.'

'71
A decent, serviceable thriller about a soldier left behind in Belfast, amid the conflict between the Protestants and the Catholics. It's a single night where he's on the run for his life.

Amira and Sam
This light weight romantic comedy about a sassy Muslim woman and an understated droll Green Beret is mostly empty air. An unconvincing romance with unconvincing characters in an unlikely situation. Skip!

Zero Dark Thirty
'Zero Dark Thirty' is one of the great modern war films. An important piece of history, it's a tight, exciting, and engrossing two hours of cinema.

Africa: Blood and Guts
This exploitation documentary about the conflict on the African continent is little more than footage of dead bodies passing as some sort of dignified reporting. Skip it as entertainment, and only watch it as a sociological curiosity.
