1. Tora! Tora! Tora! (Two-Disc Collector’s Edition)

“Tora! Tora! Tora!” is the Japanese signal to attack – and the movie meticulously recreates the attack on Pearl Harbor and the events leading up to it. Opening scenes contrast the American and Japanese positions. Japanese imperialists decide to stage the attack. Top U.S. brass ignore it’s possibility. Intercepted Japanese messages warn of it – but never reach F.D.R.’s desk. Radar warnings are disregarded. Even the entrapment of a Japanese submarine in Pearl Harbor before the attack goes unreported. Ultimately the Day of Infamy arrives – in the most spectacular, gut-wrenching cavalcade of action-packed footage ever. You’ll see moments of unsurpassed spectacle and heroism: U.S. fighters trying to take off and being hit as they taxi; men blasted from the decks of torpedoed ships while trying to rescue buddies; savage aerial dogfights pitting lone American fliers against squadrons of Imperial war planes. It’s the most dazzling recreation of America’s darkest day – and some of her finest hours.

8. Rio Lobo (Widescreen Edition)

Read Review
The final film by the legendary director Howard Hawks, released in 1970, found him paired with longtime leading man John Wayne in a story slightly similar to their more familiar Rio Bravo and El Dorado. Set at the end of the Civil War, the story finds Wayne playing a Union army colonel who recovers some stolen gold and roots out a traitor. Though a little creaky (Hawks had been making films since 1926), Rio Lobo nevertheless has his trademark, crackling dialogue, appealing characters, and ensemble spirit among the cast. This was a worthy finish to a fantastic career by a first-rank filmmaker.

John Wayne, Jennifer O’Neill. Two former Confederate soldiers team up with an ex-Union officer to settle some old scores with a bootlegger, a crooked sheriff and everyone else who crossed them. The last feature film directed by Howard Hawks. 1970/color/105 min/G/widescreen.

Featuring a “big stellar cast” (Variety), including Michael Caine, Trevor Howard, Laurence Olivier, Christopher Plummer, Michael Redgrave, Robert Shaw, Susannah York and Edward Fox, Battle of Britain is a spectacular retelling of a true story that shows courage at its inspiring best. Few defining moments can change the outcome of war. But when the outnumbered Royal Air Force defied insurmountable odds in engaging the German Luftwaffe, it may well have altered the course of history!

plotone di paracadutisti americani in birmania attraversa la giungla in territorio nemico per distruggere una stazione radar giapponese. molte scarpe al sole. grazie a walsh e al suo ritmo forsennato, e’ uno dei piu’ scattanti e realistici film di guerra usciti dall’officina di hollywood. un vero manuale di combattimento. cosi’ antigiapponese da diventare razzista. flynn a briglia corta. la trama sarebbe poi stata rielaborata in tamburi lontani. esistono copie in edizione piu’ breve (127 minuti) e colorizzata.

Lone Japanese soldier Toshiro Mifune diligently scans the ocean from his island lookout as he must have thousands of times before, but this time he spies an abandoned life raft resting on a rocky bluff. Within minutes he’s face to face with American sea-wreck survivor Lee Marvin and the two begin an elaborate game of cat and mouse. Director John Boorman presents this two-man war as a deadly game between a pair of overgrown children, who finally tire of it (as kids will) and settle into tolerated co-existence and then even something resembling a friendship. With impressionistic strokes, Boorman paints a lush tropical paradise in colors you can drink from the screen, capturing the texture of their experience as refracted through the cinema: the look of the island as seen through the haze of smoke, the sound of a sudden rainstorm as it hushes the island in a calming roar, the timelessness of life outside of civilization. The story seems almost secondary, an allegorical drama that comes alive in the excellent performances by Marvin and Mifune (who soon enough converse despite their complete inability to understand each other’s language) and the visceral immediacy of Boorman’s gorgeous widescreen images. Hell in the Pacific is not a tale told as much as a film experienced. –Sean Axmaker
