"Catch-22"


This is the story of Capt. Yossarian, a bombardier, trying to survive the war any way he can!  After reviewing the film, I have to say I like this version better.  It is more realistic and not as artsy as the film.  I think with the length of it, you gain a better understanding and relationship to the character in play as well.  Check out the trailer below and see what ya think.



Nothing epic but still entertaining,

"Attack Force Z"


Members of a commando team are sent to rescue the survivors of a plane crash on a Japanese-occupied island in the Pacific. Can this small group accomplish their mission and get out or will the might of the Empire of Japan stop them?  This is a fictional tale of the real-life commando unit, Z Special Unit.  The movie is a mess and is pretty bad but check out the trailer and see what you think. 

Crazy to see how young Gibson, Neil and Law were,

"Catch-22"


This movie follows the insane exploits of Capt. Yossarian trying to survive the war and the Army during WWII.  This is a satirical flick inspired by the book and it is a real weird trip.  Not my cup a tea but I get it and its nothing that strikes me to deeply so its a pass for me.  Give the trailer a look and see if you want to check it out.




A pass by this old gronard,

Another golden age adventure to enjoy here!  This adventure sees Angle fighting against a ghoul that needs human blood to survive!  Can Angle protect the innocent or will they continue to be prayed upon by this monster?!

Thanks, Pappy!

Dr. Who Weird WWII Style


Well I'm torturing myself with a complete series watch of Dr. Who from Season 1 on and in the 27 seasons I've watched so far we find the Doctor and his companions in the WWWII on only a couple occasions.


The first instance is during "The Curse of Fenric" in which the Doctor and Ace have to stop the evil machinations of an otherworldly enemy that is bent on causing the world to die by biological warfare unwitting unleashed by the British in their bombing campaign over Germany.  Can the Doctor stop it or will the Earth die out?!


The next time we see the Doctor in WWII is in episodes "The Empty Child" and "The Doctor Dances" in where the Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack find themselves in WWII London during the Blitz running from a child in a gas mask that has supernatural powers and that can turn you into a zombie by just touching you.  Can they solve this horrific mystery or will the world see a evil worse then the Axis cover the world?!


The next episode with WWII is The Beast Below with a quick call from ol' Churchill himself with an ominous shadow behind him.  This segue into the next show.


 The next show,Victory of the Daleks, has the Daleks acting as new weapons, called Ironsides, being used by the Brits to repel the Nazis during the Blitz.  Can the Doc figure out what the hell is going on or will London have more trouble then the Nazis on their hands?


The next show is a quick scene with Churchill and Professor Edwin Bracewell looking at a painting involved with the Doctor.


The last episode set in WWII is the Christmas special, The Doctor, Widow and Wardrobe.  Now I missed this one so can't tell ya what its about so let me know.

So if you want to see the Doctor in some Weird WWII action then check 'em out!
