  • The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

    A remarkable end to a remarkable series of films, the journey of Frodo, Sam and Gollum is the pièce de résistance of the trilogy. The tension-filled journey forces both Gollum and Sam to show their true colours as Frodo suffers under the burden of the ring. All around is war as Aragorn fights to reclaim what is rightfully his. Jackson’s vision is awesome. The Return of the King is some kind of beautiful, some kind of masterpiece. Unmissable.

  • The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

    At long last, a sword and sorcery adventure that really delivers the goods. JRR Tolkien’s great achievement was to create an English mythology, located in a fantastical yet believable world. Jackson’s great achievement is to bring the author’s 1000 page tome to life, not merely realising the fantastic elements with special effects spectacle (though they are ‘very’ spectacular), but through storytelling flare and marvellous performances from his cast. Visceral and breathtakingly dramatic, The Fellowship of the Ring is an inspired labour of love and a monumental achievement.

    25 Sep–28 Sep: Mon 7.30pm; Tue 4pm; Sat & Sun 11.15am

  • The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

    The second part of Jackson’s ambitious three-part adaptation of JRR Tolkien’s epic fantasy adventure might lack the storytelling verve of the first film, but in terms of spectacle it takes blockbuster filmmaking to the next level. Continuing where ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ left off, without any recap of the story so far, ‘The Two Towers’ follows three separate plotlines: Frodo’s trek to Modor to destroy the ring, his fellow Hobbits’ meeting with the Ents (walking, talking trees) and the human/elf/dwarf combo Aragon, Legolas and Gimili’s part in the siege of the human stronghold Helm’s Deep by the evil wizard Sauraman’s 10,000-strong army. The latter provides the hour-long climax to the film, and it’s an awesome thing to behold. But…
