They Shall Not Grow Old

It is worth remembering the horror of World War I.

A Private War

Though Rosamund Pike has received a Golden Globes nomination, is a film worth watching where the story devours the central character?

Outlaw King

This is an engaging, slow-moving historical film that you are better off seeing on Netflix.

Overlord

In between an artistically brilliant beginning and a very violent ending, this film has a surprising plot that probably won’t save it for long from the cinematic trash heap.

Dunkirk

If you majored in history in college as I did, this film teaches you more about an event in World War II than you will ever learn in a textbook.

12 Strong

The good news about 12 Strong is that it rises above the expected absurdity comprising most January film releases.

Darkest Hour

A penetrating film, Gary Oldman’s performance is a movie classic by any definition.

Rebel in the Rye

This is a movie that you should keep on your radar screen.

The Vietnam War

Watch this documentary and then read “Hue 1968” by Mark Bowden. We as a nation should never forget.
