  Head-on engagement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Head-on engagement is one where a surface-to-air missile system or jet aircraft engages another aircraft while the target aircraft is flying towards the attacker.
Radar-guided missiles are typically able, however head-on many aircraft have a much smaller radar cross-section so the radar may not be able to track/lock onto the target at maximum range in this type of engagement.
Many missiles have an effective range in a head-on engagement on the order of three or four times of that in a tail-chase engagement.

 Fantasy Basketblog: Head On
Head started, played 43 minutes and poured in 28 points, grabbed 7 boards, hit 5 3s, made 9-of-17 from the field, all 5 free throws, and added 3 assists.
Still, color me skeptical that Head will be able to keep this up, or even come close.
The more intriguing development is that if Head does manage to have a few more games close to this level, Rafer Alston might have a really, really hard time finding those 35 mpg he needs when he comes back.

 PSP Game Reviews: Twisted Metal Head-On
Head On does a superb job of looking just like its PS2 predecessor; even every little special effect from the game's combat has remained preserved.
Head-On is definitely a looker for a launch title; it stands above a number of PSP's launch titles with expansive backgrounds, such as Need for Speed Underground Rivals and possibly even Ridge Racers.
Head-On is also one of the very first PSP games to not just include wi-fi LAN multiplayer capability, but complete online capability.

 Going to Extremes: Fatih Akin on His Turkish-German Love Story "Head-On"
Fatih Akin (right) with "Head-On" stars Birol Unel (left) and Sibel Kekilli (center) at the 2004 Berlin, where the film won the Golden Bear.
Fatih Akin's "Head-On" is an energetic blast of extreme situations -- it has laughs and tears, goth songs by The Sisters of Mercy alongside Turkish traditionals, the hip bars of Hamburg and the dusty cafes of Istanbul, and -- of course -- love and hate.
When we were shooting the musicians there for "Head-On," it was such an interesting world for me, that I wanted to share it with an audience.

 German-Turkish Film "Head-On" Wins Berlinale | Culture & Lifestyle | Deutsche Welle | 14.02.2004
"Head-On," a film by a German-Turkish director won the Golden Bear at the 54th Berlin Film Festival Saturday, marking the first time in 18 years that a submission from Germany managed to take the Berlinale's top prize.
Directed by German-Turkish director Fatih Akin, "Head-On" (Gegen die Wand) tells the story of a marriage of convenience between two Turks in Hamburg: young Sibel, who is trying to escape the influence of her traditional family, and the older and self-destructive Cahit.
Although "Head-On" had been popular with festival-goers, its win comes as a bit of a surprise since other movies including "Before Sunset" starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy and "Ae Fond Kiss" by British director Ken Loach had been among the favorites.

Because this is a film with a substantial amount of brutal sex in it, and it would collapse completely without a main actor who produces so much heat.
Head On is a sexually explicit, but non-exploitative look at the life of a young gay ethnically Greek Australian guy - unable to talk to his community, feeling trapped by tradition and desperate for some sense of freedom.
So an audience is stuck with a difficult twenty minute period in the middle of the film where there seems to be no resolution in sight, no direction to follow, no structure for the unending drama to hang itself upon.

 Head-On (2005) Film Review - MovieWeb
Not only is there an ego clash between the two but Cahit is a hot head and his actions drive Sibel right into the hands of her family who are all to glad to send her back to Turkey.
Head-On, which won the Golden Bear in Berlin, five German Lolas, and three major European Film Awards, has verve and is well grounded in dealing with the subject of identity and culture clash between two people from different European countries.
Overall, Head-On is not particularly original but it is often riveting enough to hold one’s attention.

 IGN: Twisted Metal: Head-On Review
The single player modes of Twisted Metal: Head-On are nearly identical to those of Twisted Metals past, centering on the straight-forward story mode that drops players into a series of different arenas to battle it out in a free-for-all melee.
The upgrades can increase the power of special attacks, boost the height of jumps, and even improve armor, and their effect is permanent until the driver dies.
The endings in Head-On may not match the awesome absurdity of Twisted Metal 2, but the styling is very much here, invoking a nostalgia that even Twisted Metal: Black couldn't achieve.

He had been successful at the local box office with his last film, Solino, the story of two generations of Italian immigrants in the Ruhr from the sixties to the present day.
While their parents see the ‘new’ country as something necessity has forced upon them and still think of Turkey as home, for their children Germany is the only home they know.
In Head-On, the younger generation speak German among themselves and Turkish with their parents - a pattern that will be familiar to second-generation immigrants anywhere, from London’s Southall to New York’s Lower East Side.

 :: rogerebert.com :: Reviews :: Head-On (xhtml)
I treasured the scene where Cahit's new brother-in-law suggests they all make a trip to a brothel, but is enraged when Cahit suggests that the man return home and sleep with his wife instead.
The most memorable film I've seen about immigrants in Germany was "Ali -- Fear Eats the Soul" (1974), by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, a director with an uncanny resemblance to Cahit, especially in the categories of personal hygiene, barbering and drug abuse.
In "Ali," a middle-aged cleaning woman marries a much younger Moroccan man, and when she announces this fact to her family, a son (played by Fassbinder) stares at her for a second, stands up and kicks out the screen of her television set.

He could have called the picture ''The Ballad of Cahit and Sibel," in honor of its lovers, but its English title seems apt, since its writer-director is such an electrifying aggressor and his movie is so beautifully addicted to collisions.
Kekilli is a former German adult-film actress whose humiliated Turkish parents found out about it in the papers; her bad-girl life bizarrely mirrors this character's.
Her seductive body language in ''Head-On" certainly feels natural for someone with a past in porn.

The movie is well and fearlessly acted, and the writer-director (Fatih Akin) is determined to follow her story to a logical and believable conclusion, rather than letting everyone off the hook with a conventional ending.
Head-On loses its merry mojo once events turn irrevocable and the action switches from Hamburg to Istanbul.

 Bright Lights Film Journal | Head On
Ana Kokkinos’s debut feature Head On was one of the more distinctive entries in San Francisco’s 1999 Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, not least because it threw out once and for all the foolish notion that women can’t direct hot gay (or straight, for that matter) sex scenes.
But Head On is more than the string of brutal anonymous sex encounters that litter the plot like so many used rubbers.
The film is a solid exercise in generational angst — in this case the angst-ridden youth is gorgeous 19-year-old Ari (Alex Dimitriades), a semi-closet case who spends his time snorting coke, getting blown by mostly ugly strangers (or blowing them), and trying to find a fit in a world that won’t have him.
