But in the final days of the Salzik turf war, however, the Crusader faced their most challenging defensive battle to date. Today, witnesses report a total of 18 Death Control members converged over the Crusaders planet in Salzik. </span></p> <p><span>The Crusader planet, a hefty level 68, was hit numerous times and fought back with it's fierce defenses against the attacks. Crusaders worked quickly to keep the planets defenses up, mine the Salzik galaxy, and fight off the invasion. </span></p> <p><span>The planetary attack attracted a number of other warships, pilots from other alliances, who came to Salzik looking for a piece of the action. And they found it! As the battle progressed a number of ship-to-ship fights took place around the plantary sectors in which several Crusaders, DC, and pilots from other alliances were killed in the pitched battles. </span></p> <p><span>After 25 attacks on the planet, Death Control ceased firing. A total of 12 Death Control pods were recorded during the attack on the planet. Five Death Control pilots remained hovering over the planet, two in damaged ships and all of them reportedly low on turns. The 5 remaining Crusaders ships, also low on turns, regrouped during the brief pause and made two quick and suicidal counterstrikes, killing two of the remaining DC pilots and destroying their own ships in the process. At this point, observers say Death Control was seen leaving Salzik. The last Death Control ships warped out approximately 4 hours after the first attacks began. </span></p> <p><span>The final tally of losses were heavy on both sides. 18 Death Control pods, 19 Crusader pods, and 5 other alliance pods were reported in the four hour period.</span></p> <p></p> <p></p><p><em>OMGN is not responsible for any blog post content on this site.

This mission is to parachute behind enemy lines just before D-Day, the 6th of June 1944 and kill large numbers of German military officers at a rest and relaxation center in the German rear area. This mission is further complicated by the fact that the men that Reisman is to command are all convicted criminals who are either on military death row or serving lifetime sentences. If they accept going on this mission and survive it, they will all be pardoned for their crimes. In other words, a difficult mission for a difficult man.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Major Reisman not only has to train these men in the art of the commando, but he also has to get them to act as a unit. This already difficult assignment is made even more difficult in light of the fact that many of these men hate each other. Another difficulty that Reisman encounters is the fact that the officer that Reisman has to report to, the absurdly named Colonel Everett Dasher Breed (Robert Ryan), just hates him with a passion. Colonel Breed even goes so far as to report to General Worden that Reisman's unit is not working out and recommend that it be disbanded. Major Reisman then persuades General Worden to try out the unit by having it participate in a war game. If the unit fails to carry out their mission in the game, then they will be sent back to prison to finish their sentences.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; While participating in this war game might seem like an easy mission, it is actually difficult to accomplish. This is because there was some merit in Colonel Breed's position. Many of Reisman's men proved to be uncooperative since they did not think that they would have anything to lose through bad behavior. Some of them even attempted to go Absent Without Leave. However, Reisman had more success in melding the dozen recidivists together into a unit than the likes of Colonel Breed were willing to give him credit for. In the actual war game, the twelve man unit succeeds with flying colors. One reason for their success is their inferior competition as shown by the pathetic scene where General Worden encounters a U.S. Army captain who is unable to read a road map.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The suicide squad then get the green light for their mission to commence on schedule. Their next objective is to learn the layout of the French chateau where the German officers' rest area is located. The question is can the dozen man suicide squad carry out their education on the actual target? One thing is clear: the dozen fully understand that what they are doing is fighting terrorism with terrorism and civilians get hurt, then too bad.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; This movie was a major blockbuster and made major stars out of the likes of Charles Bronson, John Cassavetes and Telly Savalas. <strong>The Dirty Dozen</strong> is a classic example of just how a war movie should be made. It features a well written script, solid acting and competent direction and cinematography. <strong>The Dirty Dozen</strong> is one of the single best movies ever made about World War II even if both the mission and the men depicted in it are entirely fictional.</p><p><em>OMGN is not responsible for any blog post content on this site.

Actually, while the vast majority of zombie movies are horror, there are a few that are science fictional. One such film is the 1959 effort <strong>Teenage Zombies</strong>.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The basic premise of <strong>Teenage Zombies</strong> is that humans can be transformed by the application of a gas into mindless zombies. These zombies are nothing but mindless automatons who exist only to serve their masters. Needless to say, these are not the rampaging zombies of movies such as "Night of the Living Dead" and later flicks.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Teenage Zombies</strong> begins at a quintessential 1950's malt shop. There, high school football star Reg (Don Sullivan) talks about taking his friends water skiing. When they seem reluctant, he brings up the fact that he has discovered a previously unknown island out beyond the bay.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; This surprises his friends for they had no idea that such an island even existed since none of them had ever seen or heard of such a thing. It is clear from this point on that none of the characters in this movie have ever seen a map.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Reg takes three of his friends to the mysterious island. There, they fall into the clutches of the evil Dr. Myra (Katherine Victor) who is a mad scientist who is experimenting in gases that turn ordinary humans into mindless zombie slave laborers. Even worse, Dr. Myra is working in cahoots with a pair of Soviet agents on a scheme to create large numbers of gas capsules to drop on the United States. On top of all that, the local sheriff is in this scheme so much so that he has been supplying Dr. Myra with large numbers of "drunks and prisoners" for her experimentation. It&rsquo;s up to two of Reg's friends who did not go to the island, Morrie (Jay Hawk) and Dotty (Nan&nbsp;Green) to figure out what happened to their friends or else both their friends and the United States of America are doomed to Communist zombie enslavement.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Perhaps the most interesting actress in this movie is Brianne Murphy who played the role of Pam. Murphy was the real life wife of producer Jerry Warren who taught her how to make movies. Murphy worked on Warren's productions as well as other low budget cinematic efforts. Eventually, Murphy (who eventually divorced Warren) worked her way up to become on of the first females to work in the production department of a major studio. Murphy even won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Cinematography for a Miniseries or a Special for the 1985 TV production "There Were Times, Dear."</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Teenage Zombies</strong> is a classic example of a movie that is so bad that it is really good. There are loads of unintentional humor in this science fiction zombie flick ranging from the fancy dressing mad female scientist Dr. Myra to the hapless Communist secret agents to the bizarre zombies such as Ivan to the hopelessly incompetent U.S. Army types to the goofy teenagers themselves. If you are in need of a good laugh, then Teenage Zombies is the movie for you.</p><p><em>OMGN is not responsible for any blog post content on this site.

This was the feature that jump started the lucrative careers of the likes of director/producer Sam Raimi and actor Bruce Campbell.<br /> <br /> <strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The Evil Dead</strong><span>&nbsp;</span>concerns five stupid college student friends who decide to spend the weekend at a remote, rat-infested cabin in the forest. Little do they know that there is an unspeakable evil lurking in the forest.&nbsp; Already, evil spirits are dancing their evil dance in the forest in gleeful anticipation of the evil they are going to perpetrate. The cabin is owned by a professor who has conveniently left behind his copy of the sinister, legendary book the Necronomicon aka The Book of the Dead.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Also left behind by the professor is a tape recorder with a tape of passages from the evil book that have been translated into English. When played, these Candarian resurrection passages or whatever unleashes the powerful evil force in the woods that is determined to destroy the five friends. People start turning into evil deadites who can be destroyed only through total body dismemberment.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The friends split up and flee through the evil forest. One of them, Cheryl (Ellen Sandweiss), winds up getting raped by demonic trees. Soon, only Ashley &ldquo;Ash&rdquo; J. Williams (Bruce Campbell) remains to fight the sinister forces of forest evil.<br /> <br /> <strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The Evil Dead</strong><span>&nbsp;</span>is a movie with a forumla plot in which it is up to one man and man only to fight the multitudinous forces of evil. As with so many other movies of this type, the hero never gives up hope, never gets tired and never really sweats a lot. In other words, he really is not facing a serious challenge. Yet, we the audience are asked to believe that these same evil hosts were capable of killing his friends without much trouble.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Essentially,<span>&nbsp;</span><strong>The Evil Dead</strong><span>&nbsp;</span>is an unscary attempt at making a horror film. When you just get right down to it, it is an unintentional comedy. It is lame all the way through. The flying monkey scenes in "The Wizard of Oz" evokes more feelings of fear and dread in audiences than does any individual scene in<span>&nbsp;</span><strong>The Evil Dead</strong>. Actually, this movie is so poorly made, it would not be surprising if it turned out one day that it was made by a monkey.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Basically,<span>&nbsp;</span><strong>The Evil Dead</strong><span>&nbsp;</span>is an incredibly lame movie. It was accursed with a bad script and even worse acting. The demons in this film seem more interested in annoying their victims than in ripping their innards out. Avoid this motion picture like the plague.</p><p><em>OMGN is not responsible for any blog post content on this site.
