What can videogames tell us about the volatile east-west relations in the 1980s? Ryan takes a look at 10 unique titles from the Cold War...
Videogames are often talked about in terms of nostalgia or their pioneering place in the medium’s evolution, but how often are they described as social or historical documents? The spread of videogaming’s broader popularity in the 70s to the golden age of arcades in the 1980s took place within the shadow of the Cold War’s final years, so it’s only logical that their content reflects that period in history.
After World War II rumbled to a close in 1945, the post-war period brought with it not an era of unprecedented peace, but one of anxiety and distrust; the Us and the Ussr were two superpowers locked in a state of terse rivalry, and the threat of nuclear »
With recent confirmation coming that Steven Spielberg will longer direct Bradley Cooper in a big-screen biopic of decorated and tragic Us Navy Seal Chris Kyle, the search for a replacement may have come to an end. Taking over from legendary Oscar-winning director could be another iconic, Oscar-winning filmmaker. Clint Eastwood looks set to direct the Silver Linings Playbook Academy-Award nominee Cooper in an adaptation of Kyle’s best-selling book, ‘American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History.’
The film will follow Kyle’s early life as a young rodeo cowboy right through to his latter years as the skilled sharpshooter with most confirmed sniper kills for a Us marines. Unfortunately, his life came to an earlier this year when while teaching others how to improve their shooting skills at his local rifle range , he was murdered by fellow discharged veteran Chad Littlefield.

Along with two great documentaries on the film icon, the Clint Eastwood: 20 Film Collection showcases some of the actor/director greatest work and his ability to seamlessly jump from genre to genre with equal mastery. The set lacks some films you would expect it to include (such as Flags of Our Fathers, Play Misty for Me or The Bridges of Madison County) and features some films that might not be considered his best work . including Every Which Way But Loose, Firefox and Hereafter. Still, even a less than great Eastwood film is worth watching, and this set does show why Eastwood is a legend in Hollywood. Along with the films, the set includes the two excellent documentaries »

Box-sets, much like anthologies, have somewhat of an unavoidable mixed-bag mentality about them. It’s difficult, near impossible even, to ensure that each film within is of equal merit and quality. Increase the number of films, and the odds of consistency decrease in equal proportion. Which brings us to WB’s latest (but doubtfully last) Clint Eastwood retrospective. Clint Eastwood: 20-Film Collection lives up to my theory above thanks in part to a heavy concentration on Eastwood’s most recent output (which few people would argue in favor of), but it does an otherwise fine job of looking across the years at the man’s output both as an actor and a director. WB has also released a 40-Film set onto DVD. The Movies Surveying the twenty films featured here brings an immediate realization. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to these particular selections. The set doesn’t focus on Eastwood’s director efforts. It »

Chicago – “Clint Eastwood: 20 Film Collection” is a great Father’s Day gift that’s nonetheless a bit difficult to describe. It’s not exactly a greatest hits collection of its legendary star since it’s missing some of his most iconic films and includes some of his most notable failures. At the same time, every Eastwood fan would be happy to have at least half of these films in their collection and there’s no better way to do it then this set. It also may allow for some reevaluation and reappreciation of some of Eastwood’s less-beloved movies. I wish that Warner Bros. had taken the opportunity to upgrade a few Eastwood films that still need HD restoration but there’s enough brilliance in this box that it’s tough to complain.
Which ones are the classics in this impressively-packaged set? There are undeniable, iconic ones like “Dirty Harry, »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Jan 16, 2013
When it comes to action movie heroes, the time doesn't always fit the crime. We look at a few characters who faced wrongful imprisonment...
"Everyone in here is innocent, you know that," Morgan Freeman's character says in The Shawshank Redemption. If a prison were populated with heroes from action movies, that statement would be absolutely true. Looking back over the last quarter century of genre flicks, it soon becomes apparent that if an action protagonist goes to prison, it's usually for a crime he (or she) didn't commit.
This is probably because most action stars don't want to play convicted murderers (a trend bucked by Vin Diesel in Pitch Black), though as the list below proves, there's at least one macho actor who seems to like films which involve being sent to jail in dubious circumstances. What follows isn't an exhaustive list, but it at least illustrates that, »
