TOMORROW, they’re out TOMORROW! Ha, they’re not.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is undoubtedly an event-movie, but can it overcome the ridiculously high expectations and accusations of technological awkwardness surrounding its release? Yes. Yes it can. All the criticisms leveled at the first film in The Hobbit trilogy might be justifiable, but Peter Jackson has still created a worthy prequel to the Lord Of The Rings. Big flashy set pieces, enjoyable and complex characters and an accessible yet captivating script add up to a movie you will be proud to one day have as the cornerstone of your DVD collection. You’ll never be so glad to return to Middle Earth.
Peter Jackson will be suffering from exhaustion any day now
A thorough account of the infamous West Memphis Three murder case and its 18 year fallout, Amy Berg’s documentary combines forensic detail with righteous anger to compelling effect. There has been a lot of film dedicated to this particular story, but Berg’s is the first account to provide a complete overview of the murders that befell a rural American community in 1993. From the initial sentencing of three outcast teenagers through the years of legal wrangling and newly discovered evidence, West of Memphis paints a damning portrait of police misconduct in a society all too quick to punish those least able to defend themselves.
