Brian G. Hutton, 79, Director Of "Where Eagles Dare" And "Kelly's Heroes",

20 August 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

It is with profound sadness that we must announce the passing of director Brian G. Hutton, a long-time friend of and contributor to Cinema Retro. Brian was one of the most unique talents in the film business. Born in New York City, he never lost his hard-scrabble, irascible attitude which extended to resenting having to take orders from the studio "suits" who employed him. He walked away from a great and lucrative career in the industry decades ago and kept out of the public eye, granting precious few interviews in the intervening decades. He remains primarily known for his two big budget WWII MGM films, "Where Eagles Dare" and "Kelly's Heroes", both starring Clint Eastwood. The films were difficult to make and the latter resulted in a major conflict with Hutton and Eastwood and MGM when the studio exercised its rights to dramatically cut the film prior to its release. »

Hooked: Kurtis Wiebe and Tyler Jenkins talk about Peter Panzerfaust

13 August 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Kurtis Wiebe and Tyler Jenkins about transforming a literary icon into a swashbuckling World War II hero…

“My family is very musical, but I’m the only one who’s ever shown interest in creative writing,” explains Kurtis Wiebe (Green Wake) who won a Shuster Award for Outstanding Comic Book Writer in 2012.  “But, we grew up with stories very much being part of our lives.” Comic books were not part of reading childhood itinerary.  “Not until my mid-twenties when a friend bought me an issue of Walking Dead. I had no idea comics could be anything other than superhero stories, so it was a huge eye opener. I was never into superheroes; it never really caught my attention. The idea that you could tell any story you wanted with the medium was a huge appeal to me.”  The desire to take the comic book beyond the »

Generation War Blu-ray review

16 May 2014 12:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There have been plenty of films made about World War II before, but this new three-part series has something new to say...

The Hollywood model for war movies is well known to us; certainly my generation was raised on Sunday afternoon fare of The Great Escape, Guns of Navarone, and Where Eagles Dare. These are all great films, but do they capture any truth of the experience? How far can any film capture the experience of war?

Well, Generation War does a great job with the emotions in particular. Other WWII movies may have the action sequences to amaze, but this three-part German drama concentrates on the feelings of five friends who meet up in Berlin in 1941, on the night before three of them depart for the Eastern front. Charlotte will become a nurse. Brothers Wilhelm and Friedhelm are soldiers. Staying in Berlin are lovers Greta and Viktor. She's a »

5 WWII Men-On-a-Mission Movies To See Before 'The Monuments Men'

6 February 2014 10:51 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This week sees the release of George Clooney's "The Monuments Men" (read our review here), which carefully follows the template of what's come to be known as the men-on-a-mission movie, and has been around even before the Second World War came to a close. The recipe is simple: take a bunch of men (the more ill-suited and quarrelsome the better), give them an objective—killing Hitler, looting Nazi gold, saving Private Ryan, protecting crucial work of arts from destruction by the Germans—and send those men on the mission. It's proved a consistently popular genre over the years, with plenty of classics or near-classics, including "The Guns Of Navarone," "The Dirty Dozen," "Von Ryan's Express," "Where Eagles Dare," "The Eagle Has Landed," "A Bridge Too Far," or more recently, "Inglourious Basterds." But there's also a fair few that aren't spoken about in the same measure that might deserve to be, »
