Must See Movies Released In January

January is coming to a close, so it’s time to look back at the best Blu-ray and limited releases of the month. A heavy selection of movies based on a true events and military themed. Onto the movies:

OPERATION AVALANCHE:

This is a clever and exciting conspiracy thriller about two CIA agents that go undercover at NASA and disguise themselves as documentary filmmakers in hopes to catch a Russian mole. There is a lot of intrigue and suspense that not only will appeal to fans of NASA, but everyone who loves a mystery. It has many tie-ins to the Cold War traveling to the moon, and even Stanley Kubrick. The film has a very classic look that fits the timeframe of the late 60’s. The cast is small but effective, mainly three actors taking up the bulk of the scenes (Matt Johnson, Owen Williams and Josh Boles). This is one of those under-the-radar films that you might not have heard of, but really should see.

Operation Avalanche is out now on DVD
