5 CLASSIC WAR FILMS REVIEWED
“5 Classic War Films” is a collection of Columbia Pictures’ flicks that either on MOD or Out of Print. The people assembling these compilations know their work, but it leaves a film fan to wonder. Why is there no push to get Blu-Ray releases for these titles? I get that Criterion and other outlets might be looking at Blu-Rays for these releases, but let’s get on it! It has been ages since I sat down to watch “Young Winston”, but it bares my same experience across the other films.
These are films that have missed a generation due to their nature and careful examination of War. None of these works are traditional Gung-Ho fare. They are steady examinations of what makes humanity matter in times of dire warfare. Plus, there’s gunfights and explosions. Take what you can get.
