An optics specialist is sent to investigate the unusual readings the military is getting from his equipment.

A solid movie all around. Great action and a good world, but with enough fuzzy science and The A-Team-style jury-rigging to rivet it solidly to TV-movie quality.

(trailer)

The story of [ 1 ] the seven samurai [ 2 ] the 47 ronin the 21 Sihks defending a fort.

It's not too over-the-top Bollywood, so it's a perfectly watchable "yay us" hero story.

  • Based on actual events.

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.

Newly-developed military nano-technology is stolen by terrorists in a plot to take over the world, and only a super-elite team chosen from the international best can stop them.

This movie is another example of both an astonishingly wide gap between its original audience and current audience, and a needless unimagination in original movie universe-building authorship.

I'll take proper notes when I re-watch this.

A documentary following soldiers fighting the aliens left over from an invasion.

I rather liked this! People talk about this being low budget, but until it's pointed out I doubt someone would really notice.

A dude goes places and does things, looking for some stuff I think. There are explosions and is smoking.

Noted here just for one of those "oh, I've seen that" references.

I don't recall particularly liking or disliking it.

During World War II, a lucky Soviet soldier is fictionalized into a hero, but he truly earns that distinction only to find himself up against the German's very best.

With a good pace and atmosphere, this movie is riveting.

  • Based on Enemy at the Gates: The Battle for Stalingrad (1973 book), by William Craig

    • ISBN 0-14-139017-4
