Objective Burma | DVD | (28/06/2013)
from £5.96 | Saving you £9.03 (60.20%) | RRP
On its first release in 1945, just after VJ day, Objective Burma came under fire in the British press--much as Saving Private Ryan would do some 40 years later--for portraying the jungle war as a solely American operation. But the passage of time has allowed the movie's many merits to outshine its narrow remit. The movie's bone-chilling portrayal of pain, sacrifice and endurance is astonishing; the jungle atmosphere is so persuasive you'd swear it was shot on the actual locations; and you'll never forget the terrifying last dark night on a mountainside--or the crocodiles. A paratroop captain (Errol Flynn) sets out with a platoon to attack a Japanese outpost in the jungle. The Americans reach their target, take out the enemy with almost balletic precision, then gear up to return home. This feels like the point when a conventional war movie would have reached its action-filled climax, but the journey has only begun. Ahead lies one of the most arduous and agonising adventures any World War II film ever offered, brilliantly directed by that underrated old master Raoul Walsh and photographed with almost tactile realism by the great James Wong Howe. Franz Waxman also contributes one of his finest music scores. Flynn is excellent (he had given his best performance ever in Walsh's Gentleman Jim three years earlier), and he's backed by a solid cast including Henry Hull (as an ageing war correspondent), James Brown, William Prince, George Tobias and Stephen Richards (soon to change his name to Mark Stevens). Incidentally, two of the writers, Alvah Bessie and Lester Cole, were later blacklisted; see if you can spot any Commie propaganda. --Richard T Jameson
Flying Leathernecks | DVD | (05/06/2006)
from £3.45 | Saving you £1.01 (10.10%) | RRP
John Wayne and Robert Ryan co-star in Flying Leathernecks Nicholas Ray's intense 1951 war movie that managed to appeal to RKO studio chief Howard Hughes's passion for thrilling aerial footage while supplying Ray's own fascination with the human psyche under near-inhuman duress. Wayne plays Major Dan Kirby commander of a Marine Flying Corps squadron in the South Pacific of World War II. After witnessing the slaughter of men under his command at Midway Kirby is battle-hardened and in no mood for the familiar style of his executive officer (Ryan). Emotions are further strained as Kirby's pilots are picked off one by one in grueling missions leading to a crisis that ultimately forces each man to reevaluate his attitude toward sending men to their likely doom. The drama is built around extensive startling documentary footage of battle action in the sky but what makes Flying Leathernecks unique is its literate psychologically probing script.

Crimson Wing | DVD | (15/03/2010)
from £6.46 | Saving you £11.53 (64.10%) | RRP
Harking back to the nature films that regularly used to inhabit video rental shops, Crimson Wing sees Disney revisiting a successful strand of its past. Under the Disney Nature banner, the documentary focuses on Lake Natron in northern Tanzania. There, directors Matthew Aeberhard and Leander Ward point their cameras at a real sight of natural beauty: flamingos. Lots and lots of flamingos. The film traces the life cycle of flamingos in a measured, absorbing, non-flashy manner, and that helps make Crimson Wing such a fascinating watch. It’s terrifically shot, which helps, but over the course of its gentle running time. And it follows the creatures through life, death and the day-to-day challenges that they face. It’s not the kind of film that tends to pack multiplexes out, but Crimson Wing is a diligently made nature documentary. It’s very accessible, boasting both solid narration and a very good musical score. And it hopefully paves the way for Disney to consider more films of this ilk in the years ahead. Granted, they don’t help shift merchandise, but Crimson Wing has the power to enchant as well as the majority of family movies on the DVD shelves. Warmly recommended. --Jon Foster
Back to Bataan (John Wayne) | DVD | (05/06/2006)
from £4.89 | Saving you £5.10 (51.10%) | RRP
In Back To Bataan John Wayne plays Colonel Joe Madden a rough tough officer serving under General MacArthur during the Second World War. When American forces are forced to pull out of Bataan Madden volunteers to stay behind and organize the Filipino residents into a top flight guerilla force that will keep the Japanese on edge until MacArthur's promised return. There's some romance amid the suspense and sweaty action as an attractive Manila resistance liason (Fely Franquelli) falls for Wayne's second-in-command Captain Andres Bonifacio (Anthony Quinn) an earnest fighter trying to live up to his folk hero father's reputation. Madden however is too busy for women preferring to spend his time communicating by radio to his valiant men as they count the boats and plant the mines. The Duke is nicely understated in this atypical role a nice counterbalance to costar Quinn's typically impassioned performance. War film buffs should enjoy the film's appealing blend of action nail-biting suspense and jingoistic patriotism. Director Edward Dmytryk would later go on to direct The Caine Mutiny and The Young Lions.
