This plot sounds like a lot of other Nazi war movies, but the forgotten footnote in history this movie is based on happens to be true. It’s surprising these events are not more well documented, but probably only World War II buffs will remember the assassination of “The Butcher of Prague.”

It’s hard to imagine the holidays are almost here, but in addition to fractious family gatherings and stressful shopping trips to the mall, you can also look forward to some great movies. Everything from comic books to real life characters — even troll dolls — will appear at a theater near you:

As our climate stubbornly refuses to recognize fall, one of the signals that fall has arrived (because we couldn’t tell from the temperature) is the different tone movies take. They go from popcorn blockbusters to more action thrillers and dramas beginning in September, leading up to the awards season. This is when the studios premiere their best hopes for nominations, but the best of those usually dribble out between Thanksgiving and the end of the year. Beginning in about two weeks, though, superheroes will take a hiatus until next summer. So long, Superman.
