Follows a unit in the 101st Airborne Division during World War 2.

Quite a good story. It's full of faces I know. Great acting and spectacular realism.

  • Note: This video style is shaky.

A military man is enlisted into a mission to save Chicago United States from a terror attack.

A fantastic, emotional, movie. This has all the elements of quality which make a movie truly great.

I'm surprised I took next to no notes. There really isn't any actual "substance" to this film, in the sense that there are few references to people, places, or things. It's all one contained package that is surprisingly easy to lose time with.

An comet's path crosses the earth's, and a shuttle crew is to rendezvous with it to plant nukes to divert its course.

With a decent story and good characters, the science proves, unfortunately, fundamentally flawed. It's still a good watch and doesn't show its age.

An evil scientist constructs a robot surrogate and transfers his consciousness into it to carry out his plans for global domination by kidnapping a very wealthy sheikh's son.

A watchable moderate-budget movie which somehow still falls into an 80s-cheese style. It's rare to find such a bold movie, even with it being unashamedly graphic to the point of dark comedy. I think that's why I like it.

It's worth watching once.
