title: “The Dirty Dozen: The Deadly Mission;” The Dirty Dozen: The Fatal Mission” function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment MPAA rating: Not Rated starring: Telly Savalas, Ernest Borgnine, Randall “Tex” Cobb, Ernie Hudson, Erik Estrada theatrical release year: 1987 & 1988 DVD release year: 2006 film rating: One Star sound/picture rating: Two Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas “The Dirty Dozen: The Deadly Mission” and “The Dirty Dozen: The Fatal Mission” have little to do with the classic 1967 film that starred Lee Marvin, Jim Brown, Charles Bronson and, of course, Telly “Kojak” Savalas and Ernest Borgnine. They are both made-for-TV movies that star Savalas, and are really pretty much awful in every way. Each one has practically the same title and each one has pretty much the same plot, characters, and brutally awful dialogue. Even Savalas, who plays Major Wright, leader of the dirty dozen teams, seems merely to go through the motions to pick up a couple of paychecks for his work ...

title: Crimson Tide (Unrated Extended Edition) function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Hollywood Pictures MPAA rating: Unrated starring: Gene Hackman, Denzel Washington theatrical release year: 1998 DVD release year: 2006 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh The crux of "Crimson Tide" is a battle of wills between Lt. Commander Ron Hunter (Denzel Washington) and Capt. Frank Ramsey (Gene Hackman). It’s a story that also pits two age groups and personality types against each other. Ramsey is an old Navy guy, who has plenty of battle scars and hands-on sailing experience under his belt. Hunter, on the other hand, is an educated and philosophical new school leader whom Ramsey sees as young blood competition.

title: World War II In Color: The British Story function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();<br> studio: Carlton Television, Ltd. & Champion Television, Ltd. MPAA rating: NR starring: Simon Jones, David Dixon, Sandra Dickinson, Mark Wing Davey release year: 2002 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Five Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom “World War II In Color: The British Story” documents the Second World War in bright colors and vivid sound. Most viewers who do remember news footage of World War II from public school classes or snippets in other movies, recall those bits and pieces in black and white. In a way, showing the Second World War in black and white is fitting in the minds of a lot of people. After all, the issues the war was based on were black and white, good vs. evil. Of course, the student of political history will know that the answers for why the war came about only a generation after World War I are not that easy.

title: The Great Raid function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Miramax MPAA rating: Rated R for strong war violence and brief language. Starring: Benjamin Bratt, James Franco, Joseph Fiennes, Connie Nielsen, Max Martini, Marton Csokas, Motoki Kobayashi, Robert Mammone, Natalie Mendoza. Theatrical and video release: 2005 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture rating: Four-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Miramax has given “The Great Raid” first-class treatment on DVD. The two-disc set is laden with extras, including an especially good documentary called “The Ghosts of Bataan.” There’s a commentary track with the director, producer and others closely involved. A timeline of the war in the Pacific, which includes several historical facts likely to surprise most viewers, is included on the second disc.

title: The Dirty Dozen function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Warner Home Video starring: Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, John Cassavetes, Telly Savalas, Ernest Borgnine, Richard Jaeckel, Robert Ryan, Donald Sutherland, Clint Walker, Trini Lopez, George Kennedy, Ralph Meeker, Robert Webber release year: 1967 film rating: Four-and-a-half-stars reviewed by: Bill Warren One of the most entertaining war movies ever made, THE DIRTY DOZEN actually spends much more timing in training the title characters than it does in putting them through their paces in combat. But that's no complaint; even at two and a half hours, the movie doesn't have a dull moment, and the big climax -- a raid on a German-held French chateau -- is beautifully staged and rivetingly suspenseful. Robert Aldrich was a hit-and-miss director, but give him testosterone-pumped dark-themed action-adventure, and he could deliver dynamite.
