Fictional recreation of the WWII Battle of Arnhem featuring performances from soldiers who fought in the actual battle. The Battle of Arnhem occurred in September 1944, when British and American forces led by Field Marshall Montgomery attempted to cross the Rhine and establish a presence in Holland. The ensuing fighting was frantic and chaotic and gave rise to the popular movie 'A Bridge Too Far'. This earlier effort, filmed little more than a year after the battle itself and featuring men such as Stanley Maxted and Thomas Scullion who actually participated in the conflict, provides a dramatic and hard-hitting insight into the experience of war.

Spun by operatives with intersecting agendas, Miller must hunt through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil for answers that will either clear a rogue regime or escalate a war in an unstable region.

And at this blistering time and in this combustible place, he will find the most elusive weapon of all is the truth.

A superb ensemble falls in for Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanising process that turns people into trained killers.

Joker (Matthew Modine), Animal Mother (Adam Baldwin), Gomer (Vincent D'Onofrio), Eightball (Dorian Harewood), Cowboy (Arliss Howard) and more experience boot-camp hell pitbulled by a leathering D.I. (Lee Ermey) viewing would-be devil dogs as grunts, maggots or something less.

The action is savage, the story unsparing, the dialogue spiked with scathing humour. From basic training rigours to Hue City combat nightmare, Full Metal Jacket scores a cinematic direct hit.

There are no wars to fight. But Gunnery Sgt. Tom Highway, a dog-faced relic of past wars, still has a lot of fight in him.

Besides playing "Gunny," Eastwood also directs and produces this tale of a Marine Corps lifer who, starting his last tour of duty before retirement, sees the bumpy road his life has taken become more complicated, due to feisty recruits, by-the-book officers and a salty ex-wife to whom he's still attracted,

Take the ridge - Heartbreak Ridge - and get a vivid, rough-and-ready entertainment from a top artist in top form.

R118 Discovery Miles 1 180 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Two war dramas directed by Clint Eastwood. 'Flags of Our Fathers' (2006) is based on the book by James Bradley and Ron Powers. In February 1945, even as victory in Europe was finally within reach, the war in the Pacific raged on. One of the most crucial and bloodiest battles of the war was the struggle for the island of Iwo Jima, which culminated with what would become one of the most iconic images in history: five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi. But the surviving flag raisers had no interest in being held up as symbols and did not consider themselves heroes; they wanted only to stay on the front with their brothers in arms who were fighting and dying without fanfare or glory. 'Letters from Iwo Jima' (2006) is based on the book 'Picture Letters from Commander in Chief' by Tadamichi Kuribayashi. The island of Iwo Jima stands between the American military force and the home islands of Japan. Therefore the Imperial Japanese Army is desperate to prevent it from falling into American hands and providing a launching point for an invasion of Japan. General Tadamichi Kuribayashi (Ken Watanabe) is given command of the forces on the island and sets out to prepare for the imminent attack. General Kuribayashi, however, does not favour the rigid traditional approach recommended by his subordinates, and resentment and resistance fester among his staff.

Based on the true story of the relationship between Sidney Schanberg (Sam Waterston), a Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times correspondent, and Dith Pran (Haing S Ngor), the Cambodian aide who remains behind following the evacuation of Cambodian citizens by the US army.

Initially sending Schanberg news flashes, Pran is subsequently captured by the Khmer Rouge and subjected to the atrocities of the barbarous 're-education camps'.

A startling feature debut from director Roland Joffe, The Killing Fields graphically articulates the carnage and absurdity of war, offering an apocalyptic vision of the fields where innocent people were slaughtered en masse.

Sidney Poitier plays the journalist along for the ride. Director James Harris, a former producer of Stanley Kubrick, presents similar themes to Kubrick's 'Dr Strangelove', very much in vogue in the Cold War due to the fear and paranoia caused by the brinkmanship of the Superpowers. Also with James MacArthur, Martin Balsam and Donald Sutherland.

They were goldbricks until they found out about the gold bricks - a fortune in Nazi-confiscated bullion!

Clint Eastwood re-signs with the director of his Where Eagles Dare for this alternately action-filled and tongue-in-cheek tale of GIs who decide to get something extra out of the war.

Eastwood, North America's No.2 box-office star at the time, plays Lt. Kelly, mastermind of a scheme to slip behind enemy lines and steal the loot. Co-stars include a trio on the verge of big-time TV success: Carroll O'Connor, Telly Savalas and Gavin MacLeod.

Plus, Don Rickles plays the expectedly outspoken Crapgame. And in the same year as his starmaking M.A.S.H., Donald Sutherland is Oddball, World War ll's only hippie. Dig it!
