Good Kill
Really Great 83 Points 2015

Obama’s War on Terror comes alive in Good Kill. Set in 2010, after the second POTUS to prosecute the Islamist War dramatically escalated drone warfare, it unflinchingly portrays the toll on airmen and their families from a new kind of combat in an incompetently defined war. Albeit fictional, it…

Into the White
Very Good 83 Points 2012

True stories from World War II were mostly all made into movies well before 2012. Yet this one flew under the radar. Understandable perhaps for a story set far from the heart of the war, one that’s not even strategic, just a quotidian miracle from the great white North. Reindeer walk by, for g…

Red Tails
Good 83 Points 2012

The Greatest Generation embodied countless examples of personal and patriotic valor. The Tuskegee Airmen – as great a group of military pilots as this country ever fielded – delivered more than their fair share of both, making their story among the most significant from WWII.

Aces High
OK 17 Points 1976

Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines – as the phrase went back in the day. Magnificent indeed, but also jaded, troubled, and struggling with the fact that so little of them ever make it through WWI sotries alive. Aces High takes a soft-pedal (well, soft for a 70’s movie anyway) look a…

Fortress
OK 17 Points 2012

I’m on a roll with watching ‘B War Movies’ recently, so in that spirit I took a gander at Fortress. Fortress is a bit of a stretch. It seems to me that B17s were largely sitting ducks between the flack from below and the fly-by strafing from above. Numbers was the key to success, the more B17s …
