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...

Seven Samurai (1954)

No other Japanese filmmaker so inspired, or was inspired by, Western culture more than Akira Kurosawa. Perhaps that's why Seven Samurai (1954), an epic, 3 1/2 hour action movie remains so popular in the US. read more...

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)

Newcomer David Yates somehow landed the job of directing the fifth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), and while the result was passable, it was a typical newcomer's job. For the new sixth film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Yates returns refreshed, and much more intuitive and confident. Better still, the series' regular scribe Steve Kloves returns after taking the last film off, and his skill at balancing the books' gargantuan plots and characters is still apparent. read more...

Ran (1985)

This grand epic from the 75-year-old Japanese master Akira Kurosawa is one of his finest achievements. Crafted from Shakespeare's King Lear, it concerns an aged warlord who wishes to divide his kingdom up between his three sons (instead of daughters in the Shakespeare play), but wishing to keep his title and power. Of course, what the warlord has in mind and what transpires are not the same thing. The first son is killed by the second, and the third -- who was banished by his father -- remains loyal. The real powerhouse of the story is Mieko Harada as the superbly evil Lady Kaede who marries and influences two of the brothers. read more...
