Apocalypse Now (1979)

All throughout film history, there have been war movies. It is safe to say that the two most covered conflicts are World War II and the Vietnam War. I understand that I’ve grown up in North America, and the majority of these films have been centred around American participation in these conflicts.  Apocalypse Now is … More Apocalypse Now (1979)

Stripes (1981)

There have been a handful of military comedies to grace the big screen over the years, and one of the most talked-about is Stripes.

The greatest thing about this movie was Sam Rockwell. We need to get that man into more roles just like this one. He … More Jojo Rabbit (2019)

I enjoy war movies, and even though my major in college focused a lot on history, I barely remember anything about the world wars. Midway was a pretty good … More Midway (2019)

Tolkien (2019)

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was a literal genius. I am not the world’s biggest Lord of the Rings or Hobbit fans, but I respect what those stories accomplished in book and movie form. There’s so much story within the story that no matter how many times I watch the films, there is probably a thousand … More Tolkien (2019)
