John Agar (l.) and John Wayne star in Sands of Iwo Jima

John Wayne (True Grit, Red River) did a bunch of war movies, but he garnered a 1949 Best Actor Academy Award nomination for his iconic role as the battle-hardened leader of a squad of recruits in Allan Dwan’s classic war film Sands of Iwo Jima, which makes its Blu-ray debut from Olive Films.

Haunted by his personal demons, Marine Sgt. John Stryker (Wayne) is both hated and feared by his men, who see him as a cold-hearted sadist. But when their boots hit the beaches, they begin to understand the reason for Stryker’s rigid form of discipline, as he leads them into one of the most treacherous battles in the Pacific.

Co-starring John Agar, Forrrest Tucker, Richard Webb and Richard Jaeckel, Sands of Iwo Jima remains »

The Definitive War Movies: 30-21

As we continue with the list, we still see a lot of World War II, but throw in some World War I and Persian Gulf War, too. While some of the films in this portion of the list spin the war film into something a little more ingenious, it doesn’t completely rule out the idea of a patriotic call to arms film. We also see a few more foreign language films on the list, as well as some Oscar winners for their work. Without further ado, let’s light this candle.

Conflict: World War II

In 2008, the Dutch public named it the greatest Dutch film ever made. Who am I to argue? A surprisingly complete film from a director who has Showgirls and Hollow Man under his belt (and Starship Troopers and Robocop…I can’t be too hard »
