    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring


    Hasn't quite aged as well I'd hoped it had.

    The sequence up to the opening title is the peak of the film as far as pacing goes. There are plenty of funny moments after, but each scene feels stretched thin more and more as time goes by.

    This is my first experience with a Paul W.S. Anderson film and though Anderson makes full use of the 3-D potential of the volcano and also provides some decent action sequences, I don't think this film can be justifiably labelled anything more than mediocre. All that Anderson and company creates visually is unfortunately accompanied by stereotypical characters, predictable plot points, and terribly uninspired dialogue. There is more to a movie than its writing, but it nearly cripples the film here.

    Not the ideal sleepy Sunday afternoon movie, but Kubrick's vision here is still awe-inspiring.
