    Alexander Skarsgard Commands Nat Wolff in A24’s War Drama ‘The Kill Team’

    Alexander Skarsgard Commands Nat Wolff in A24’s War Drama ‘The Kill Team’

    War can be hell for those that bravely choose to fight for what they believe in, and there is no one more courageous than a United States soldier. Those brave men and women go out into the field with enemies lurking in the shadows. Around every corner could be an enemy combatant looking to end that soldier's life. One must keep their wits about them as attacks can come when they least expect it, in more ways than one. But what if the bad guys weren’t the only ones you had to worry about? What if those who you called brothers in arms were causing you to look over your shoulder? I can’t think of a worse hell than being thousands of miles from home in a country where people are actively trying to kill you, and those who are supposed to be your allies are forcing you to sleep with one eye open. Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to The Kill Team.

    My Review of 'Unbroken'

    My Review of 'Unbroken'

    I am a sucker for inspirational stories so when I first heard of the movie unbroken I definitely wanted to see it. It took quite some time but I eventually got around to seeing it. I don't know what took me so long. I guess there were a lot of blockbuster movies that got in the way and somehow I forgot about watching it.

    My Review of 'Dunkirk'

    My Review of 'Dunkirk'

    I've been meaning to watch Dunkirk for a long time but never got to it until this week. I remember seeing the trailer way back when. It was a super long trailer with a whole bunch of soldiers on a dock and some medics trying to get by. Everyone is shoulder to shoulder, so it's really tight. Then, all of a sudden, you hear the music really getting amped up. There is a noise of a plane coming. You can see the fear in their eyes, as each of them start to take notice of the noise. You see a plane coming in and everyone starts ducking. Then the Dunkirk logo pops up.

    Best Veterans Day Movies of All Time

    Best Veterans Day Movies of All Time

    Veterans Day is observed annually on November 11 in the United States and serves to honor all those who have served in the US Armed Forces. This holiday originated as Armistice Day (a holiday still celebrated in many countries), which marked the anniversary of the Armistice with Germany that ended World War I. Since 1954, Armistice Day was officially renamed Veterans Day in the US. Since many workers and students have Veterans Day off, it is a good day for celebration in honor of the many men and women who have served in the US Armed Forces (as well as those still on active duty). One easy way to observe Veterans Day is to pick out a war movie or two to watch in observance of the holiday. To help you choose, here are 10 Veterans Day movies to help you honor those who have served our country.

    My Review of 'The Hunting Party'

    My Review of 'The Hunting Party'

    The Hunting Party stars Richard Gere, Terrence Howard and Jesse Eisenberg—three pretty popular big name actors right about now but this movie came out back in 2007. I don't quite remember their star power back then. I know Richard Gere and Terrence Howard were pretty big names for a while so maybe the studio was depending on their star power to popularize the movie.

    10 Gory War Movies on Netflix

    Despite removing some of their best titles in the war genre, Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge and Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan come to mind, there is still an abundance of gory war movies on Netflix that you need to see. These war movies take you into war from several different perspectives and all tell unique stories. What bands these movies together is the realism and gore they provide.

    Best Military Movies 2018

    The best military movies often share a set of similar themes. Some of the most popular in these films include sacrifice, loyalty, commitment, and perseverance. However, what sets the best apart from the rest is their ability to properly tell a unique story. Directors, writers, and actors in these war movies either effectively translate an incredible true story onto the big screen, or explore a less flashy topic from an entirely new perspective, creating a fresh, distinct message altogether. All of the movies below successfully accomplish one of these objectives, and are ones you need to see if you haven't already.

    Is Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ an Accurate Representation of History?

    Is Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ an Accurate Representation of History?

    On July 21st, 2017, Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk hit theatres all over the world, starring multiple new and up-and-coming actors such as: Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Harry Styles, and Kenneth Branagh. The story follows three different storylines taking place within the same time frame. Each storyline follows a different group of men who endure different areas of war, such as air, land, and sea. The movie tells the story of the Dunkirk evacuation during World War ll. However, most war-time movies often exaggerate for drama and entertainment. With Dunkirk being so new, it allows for interpretation since nobody has yet deemed it accurate or inaccurate. So, is Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk accurate to its time period?
