Review: WarHunt

— by WILLIAM STERR — It was a dark and stormy night. With crows. Let’s set the scene: It’s early 1945 and the war in Europe is nearing conclusion. Hitler’s Germany is desperate. Soviet troops are advancing from the east, while the Americans and their allies are closing in from the west. However, the Fuhrer […]

The Best Movies And TV Shows Coming To Netflix In February 2022

Had enough of the winter doldrums already? Well, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but we've still got quite a ways to go. February will soon be upon us, which means the more superstitious (and groundhog-obsessed) among us will have the answer as to whether to expect even more winter misery (or winter wonder, for those of us who actually like this season!) to come. On the bright side, at least the days are already getting longer and we're about to transition into the shortest month of the...

Jeremy Irons on Netflix’s ‘Munich’ and Why He Hasn’t Seen ‘The Snyder Cut’

Neville Chamberlain has endured a savage historical appraisement. He’s the prime minister who failed to stand up to Hitler. The politician who didn’t understand the existential threat posed by the fascist leader and his Nazi ideology. The man who bundled things so spectacularly with his policy of appeasement that Europe plunged into devastating conflict that […]

“They Should Blow Up the Whole Continent of Africa!”: Daughter of South Carolina News Anchor’s Racist Rant Caught on Video

The video, which first surfaced online Wednesday afternoon (Jan. 12), shows Gracie Wood—WSPA Channel 7 news anchor Amy Wood‘s daughter—amongst “friends” as she says horrible things, like advocating for the removal of “Mexicans and Middle Easterners” because “all they do i...

Movies Like Red Dawn That You Need To Check Out

The year 1984 offered a bumper crop of cult classics that haven't aged well, yet thrive in our hearts. "Red Dawn," starring Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen, is a deep-fried mozzarella stick of action joy, a thriller that pits a mob of high schoolers against an enemy invasion. The specter of the Cold War and '80s Communist alarmism fuels the film's deadly Russian threat that seeks to take over America by force. A 2012 remake lost what was special about "Red Dawn," up to and including Swayze's da...

Toni Morrison Lists the 10 Steps That Lead to Fascism: From Constructing an Enemy, to Maintaining Silence at All Costs

Image by Angela Radulescu, via Wikimedia Commons The term fascism gets thrown around a great deal these days, not always with high regard to consistency of meaning. Much like Orwellian, it now seems often to function primarily as a label for whichever political developments the speaker doesn’t like. Even back in the 1940s, Orwell himself took to the Tribune in an attempt to pin down what had already become a “much-abused word.” Half a century later, the question of what fascism actually is and ...

The Human Torch Easter Egg You May Have Missed In Captain America: The First Avenger

One of the fun things about Marvel having over eight decades of comic book pages to flip through is that provides the Marvel Cinematic Universe with an abundance of stories and characters to mine when coming up with new stories for the films and shows. Even after a dozen years and counting, there's still plenty to explore in depth. In fact, there's so much rich mythology in Marvel Comics that sometimes the MCU just likes to breeze by its own canon without taking a major pitstop, providing a trea...

La tour

Well, here it is again. That enduring symbol of Paris and, of course, of France: la tour Eiffel (the Eiffel Tower). It's difficult, if not impossible, to be in Paris and not catch a glimpse. I don't know how many photos I've taken of it over the decades. This one is from somewhere* in the 15th Arrondissement, just south and a little west of the tower, not far from the river. I took it while walking in that neighborhood in the summer of 2006. The Eiffel Tower is the tallest structure in Paris. ...

Year Of The Vampire: 100 Years Ago, Nosferatu Defined The Vampire Movie

(Welcome to Year of the Vampire, a series examining the greatest, strangest, and sometimes overlooked vampire movies of all time in honor of "Nosferatu," which turns 100 this year.)Strictly speaking, "Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror" is not the oldest vampire film. There are other lost films that predate it, and still other extant works in which the vampire, or "vamp," serves as more of a proto-femme fatale, divorced of blood-drinking and many of the genre conventions that would arise after "Nos...

Every Terrence Malick Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

Once a decade or so, Terrence Malick would crawl out of whatever primordial netherworld that nourishes his mind and make a movie. After his stunning sophomore effort, 1978's "Days of Heaven," the auteur vanished for 20 years. When he returned in 1998, he delivered another ethereal classic, "The Thin Red Line."So grew Malick's legend. But as he's entered his later years, the spirit has really moved him. After 2011's "The Tree of Life," Malick became unexpectedly prolific, adding numerous shorts a...

The Famous Downfall Scene Explained: What Really Happened in Hitler’s Bunker at the End?

Before his role as Hitler in the 2004 German film Downfall turned Swiss actor Bruno Ganz into a viral internet star, he was best known for playing an angel who comforts the dying in Wim Wenders’ 1987 Wings of Desire. “People really seemed to think of me as a guardian angel,” he told The Irish Times in 2005. “People would bring their children before me for a blessing or something.” Seventeen years later, the self-described introvert transformed his gentle, comforting face into the Nazi sc...

The King's Man Credits Scene Explained: So You Say You Want A Revolution?

Inspired by the comic book series "The Secret Service" by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, and serving as a prequel to 2014's "Kingsman: The Secret Service" and 2017's "Kingsman: The Golden Circle," Matthew Vaughn's "The King's Man" is an odd amalgamation of cartoonish violence and somber melodrama. Set decades before the events of the first two films, "The King's Man" centers on several events during World War I and the establishment of the Kingsman agency. Matthew Goode's Shepherd/Captain Morton ...

The ghosts of Weimar: is Weimar Germany a warning from history?

The ghosts of Weimar are back. Woken up by the rise of populist right-wing parties across Europe and beyond, they warn of danger for democracy. The historical reference point evoked by these warnings is the collapse of the Weimar Republic followed by the Nazi dictatorship. The connection between now and then seems indisputably obvious: democracy died in 1933, and it is under attack again today.But history does not repeat itself. Referring to the warnings of Weimar is a shorthand often used to co...

15 Underrated War Movies You Need To Watch

War films have an important place in cinema history, and the genre itself is much more diverse than some may expect. War films are exciting because they don't all fit under a single label. Throughout the course of cinematic history, there have been many films based on numerous conflicts. Some of these battles actually happened, some are only inspired by actual history, and some are completely imaginary, but regardless, it's always fascinating to see history play out on screen, as well as to watc...
