Dungeons and Dragons

Justin Whalin, Marlon Wayans, Jeremy Irons and others ham it up in this cheap-looking, boring, badly acted and generic fantasy flick. It features a been-there done-that plot and some truly abhorrent special-effects. Not recommended.

The Fellowship of the Ring

Director Peter Jackson brings the famous Lord of the Rings novel to glorious life in this first instalment of the now lauded trilogy. Wonderful direction, solid acting, groundbreaking special-effects and excellent action sequences abound in this epic fantasy for the ages.

Pan’s Labyrinth

Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth is a wonderfully dark, mesmerizing, wonderful fantasy film filled with gorgeous visual effects, both digital and practical, and outstanding cinematography, as well as a thoughtful and mature story.
