Heaven And Earth (1993): From three-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone -- whose Platoon took you to the Vietnam battlefront and whose Born On The Fourth Of July took you to the American homefront -- comes an acclaimed movie about the fight to survive on both fronts. Tommy Lee Jones and Joan Chen "turn in award-caliber performances" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) in the powerful story of a man who fought, a woman who endured...and a love caught up in the explosive wartime upheaval of a land and a people caught between Heaven And Earth.
Escape To Victory (1981): The battlefield: a stadium in occupied Paris. The armies: German all-stars vs. ragtag Allied POWs. The objective: demonstrate another "proof" of Aryan superiority. Guess who wins? Better yet, guess who cleverly uses the match as a means of escape?
Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine and Max von Sydow star in this rouser directed by the legendary John Huston. The climatic match is a heart-in-the-throat, hat-in-the-air exhibition of brute force and balletic grace featuring soccer legends Pele, Bobby Moore, Osvaldo Ardiles, Co Prins, Mike Summerbee and more.
Gettysburg (1993): Summer 1863. The Confederacy pushes north into Pennsylvania. Union divisions converge to face them. Two great armies will clash at Gettysburg, site of a theology school. For three days, through such legendary actions as Little Round Top and Pickett's Charge, the fate of "one nation, indivisible" hangs in the balance.
The bloodiest battle fought on American soil comes to the screen in a powerful production. Tom Berenger, Jeff Daniels, Martin Sheen, Richard Jordan and more play key roles in this magnificent epic based on Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning book 'The Killer Angels', filmed at actual battle locations and rigorously authenticated.
Memphis Belle (1990): During spring 1943 they took to the war-torn skies for the most dangerous mission in defence of freedom. If the ten-man crew of the bomber Memphis Belle returned, they would receive a hero's welcome and renew flagging public morale. But the odds were stacked heavily against them in the true, courageous story of the brave "fly-boys" who each fought mortal fear while fighting the enemy together.
