This movie touched me
Fellowship Of The Ring was a tremendously great movie. It had the advantage of a peaceful introduction showing us the life of Hobbiton, before the impending doom of Mordor which only helped to re-inforce just how fragile life really is.
The Two Towers was a dramatic second installment to this trilogy, the place where the ground usually starts to cave in. Luckily, this was not the case in the series.
After seeing Return Of The King, all I can say is "wow". I went into the theatre fully expecting to see a movie that would top both FOTR and TTT. I got even more than I expected. I was very appreciative of the extra 30 minutes. It helped to wrap up the story properly. I have to admit that tears came to my eyes on several occasions during this film. The acting was real, the story was unparalleled.
Kirikou et la sorcière (1998)
An authentic film
I have rented this film on DVD 3 times now for my three boys. Fortunately, in Canada, this can be found easily enough, even in the public library. I found this film to be a refreshing change to the cookie-cutter formula films cranked out by the un-named, animated conglomerate. It is fairly authentic and not afraid to be so.
Finding Nemo (2003)
Eye candy. Great film that tugs at the heart strings.
I loved the animation, and not just the pretty reef scenes either. I was particularly impressed with the various atmospheric conditions from the colourful reef, to the pitch black depths, to the world war 2 wreck, the polluted Sydney harbour, etc etc.
Of all the pixar films so far, there was more to tug at the heart strings here. Maybe because I am a parent.
Planet of the Apes (2001)
I was into this film
The story behind Planet Of The Apes is such a great one that it is almost impossible to mess it up. This new version of the film thankfully does not do that. I liked the original and I like this one as well. It adds a lot of special effects to an already great story to create something that I would want to experience again.
The best film that I have seen this year (so far)
I love the Dreamworks studios. They are doing something good. Disney studios recognizes this and are trying unsuccessfully to duplicate this, but cannot. Shrek was a departure from the norm, a refreshing entry in the animation genre. I loved the underlying themes that are in it, and the many hidden gems that the kiddies may or may not pick up. I would pay my money to watch it again.
