Based on a horrifying true story from World War II and adapted from the autobiographical book by survivor Ernest Gordon, TO END ALL WARS tells the brutal tale of a group of Scottish soldiers who discover just how evil war can be. Major Campbell (Robert Carlyle), Gordon (Ciaran McMenamin), Dusty (Mark Strong), and American Lieutenant Reardon (Kiefer Sutherland) are captured by the Japanese. Beaten, starved, and brutalized, they are then forced to work on the "Railway of Death," building track through an impossibly dense jungle. David L. Cunningham's film focuses on the battles within each individual soldier, adding even more gravity to the picture.

[url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/dt/assoc/tg/aa/xml/assoc/-/B0001XAOMU/hollywoodbitchsl/ref=ac_bb1_] J.W. Coop (Columbia/Tri-Star) [/url]
Once a successful rodeo rider, J.W. Coop (Cliff Robertson, who also directed) has just been released from jail after a 10-year sentence for writing a bounced check and fighting with a sheriff. The predictable culture of jail, however, was easy for Coop, compared to his having literally to "get back on the horse," and begin anew. He ambles around a radically altered America with his countercultural female sidekick, Bean (Christina Ferrare), and tries to campaign seriously for a shot at a rodeo championship. As the demons of his past, exemplified by his disturbed mother, threaten to hamper his comeback, Coop faces harder choices than ever before.

Owen Devereaux (Glenn Ford) bears mental scars from the Civil War and develops an eager trigger finger. In battle, he orders the slaughter of a band of holed-up Confederates -- after he has seen them raise a white flag. Later, he lands a Federal judgeship post in Colorado and tries to settle down. But to no avail, for he abuses his gavel in the same, unhinged manner as he did his pistol. Eventually, his friend, Captain Del Stewart, realizes how crazed Devereaux's behavior is. When he withholds a cache of gold from its rightful owners, Devereaux gives Stewart no choice but to put a stop to his court of terror.
DVD Features 98 mins, Not Rated, Fullscreen, Dolby Digital (English), Subtitles (English/Japanese)
