"Kukan"

 

A great wartime documentary of the Chinese conflict up to 1941 and a must for anyone interested in this time period. 

Keep it WEIRD!

"The Victors"

 

"A group of American soldiers manages to survive over the course of World War II, from the Battle of Britain to the fall of the Third Reich. Along the way, a number of unfortunate incidents occur. White soldiers violently abuse fellow black soldiers, a deserter is summarily executed on New Year's Eve and a sergeant takes advantage of a shell-shocked French woman. War is hell for the winners and the losers in this episodic meditation on the horrors that exist on and off the field of battle." Not sure about this anti-war flick I guess it leaves you in a strange state which is probably what it wants.  Give it a go below and see what you think.


It's a weird one,

The novel by Alexander Baron in which the movie was inspired.

"Reveille"

 

"In November 1943, a group of American soldiers and their wounded German prisoners are forced to confront their mutual humanity when taking cover together after a skirmish in central Italy."  This low-budget flick wasn't worth a shit.  Give the trailer a go below and see what you think.

Pass,

"The Final Stand"

 

"Cadets from the Podolsk infantry and artillery schools are sent to fight alongside units from the Soviet 43rd Army outside Moscow in 1941, holding back the German advance while hopelessly outnumbered until reinforcements arrive."  This was a really good flick so give the trailer a go below and see what you think.


A great flick!

"Desert Rats"

 
 
This was a teaser trailer for a film that seemed to have never been completed. Give it a for all the same for some cool visuals.


Looked like it could've been a good flick,
