The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

The toughest job a filmmaker can take on is translating a beloved novel to the screen: you're torn between being completely faithful and showing your own vision. Whereas Chris Columbus made Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone with no directorial personality whatsoever, the new The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring was helmed by the far more interesting Peter Jackson, who made the 1994 masterpiece Heavenly Creatures and the raunchy B-movies Bad Taste and Dead-Alive. Rather than delivering a faceless product, Jackson imbues his personal signature on the fantasy epic, while still sticking close to the source. read more...

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

It's a bit of a burden to go on record regarding the second part of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy. After all, isn't it just that: a second part? It's not like a sequel for which you can happily bounce down to the multiplex without having seen the first part and expect to know what's going on. Of course, it gets even more complicated than that. We can't really sit through a 9-hour movie all at once, can we? So it makes sense to spread it out a little. But then there's the DVD to take into account. The recently released "Expanded Edition" of The Fellowship of the Ring added some 30 minutes to that section of the film. Can we expect similar "expanded editions" for the other two sections? How long will the whole thing be and what will it be like all at once? read more...

The Great Escape (1963)

Director John Sturges (1910-92) was known for his manly action pictures and for his beautiful use of the widescreen frame. Unfortunately, he was also known for inflating and expanding his pictures until they resembled giant self-important works of art, even if they were still nothing more than manly action pictures. His best film is still the small, unpretentious Bad Day at Black Rock (1955), but his fans prefer The Magnificent Seven and The Great Escape. Those two films offer the chance to enjoy a rugged action picture without feeling guilty. They're both so epic in scope and so high-minded in spirit that they can't be just a waste of time, can they? read more...

Red Cliff (2009)

As a battle epic, John Woo's Red Cliff is as impressively mounted as Braveheart and Gladiator, but as directed by Hong Kong action master John Woo, it easily surpasses them in terms of style and grace, action and cinematography. (It is currently the all-time box office champion in China.) During the Han Dynasty, the evil Chancellor Cao Cao (Zhang Fengyi) embarks on a campaign to wipe out two rebel forces, with the might of the emperor's army on his side. Representing the two rebel armies, strategist Kongming (Takeshi Kaneshiro) and viceroy Zhou Yu (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) team up to battle Cao Cao; together they use wisdom and cunning against the villain's brute strength. The movie depicts several smaller, individual attacks and battles before building up to the final showdown. read more...
