For your consideration...

Lord of the Rings:The Return of the King
The final part of the Lord of the Rings trilogy is released on the 17th December. Sneak previews indicate that it is not only as good as its predecessors, but in many areas, far superior.

The Matrix Revolutions
The final part in the matrix trilogy contains the conclusion of Neo and Trinity’s story. Some will be disappointed that not all questions are answered, however as a huge fan of the original, I was not disappointed. The action scenes are, as always, spectacular.
Highly recommended.

Finding Nemo
The latest from Pixar, the team that brought us Toy Story and Monsters Inc. Equally as good as the latter, not quite as good as Toy Story, the story involves a mismatched pair of fish, Marlon(Albert Brooks) and Dory(Ellen DeGeneres), tracing the whereabouts of Marlon’s son Nemo(Alexander Gould). Appealing to both adults and children alike, this is the highest grossing animated feature of all time, surpassing even Disney favourite ‘The Lion King’.

In America
Jim Sheridan’s latest is the touching story of a couple, Johnny(Paddy Considine) and Sarah(Samantha Morton), who move to America to start a new life after the death of their son Frankie. Their daughters, Christy(Sarah Bolger) and Ariel(Emma Bolger), find a new friend in Mateo(Djimon Hounsou), a mysterious artist who lives in the same apartment building.

And saving the very best until last:

Kill Bill
Quentin Tarantino’s fourth film is a stunning mixture of action, comedy, animation, witty dialogue and violence. As the poster so rightly declares, Kill Bill is “A Roaring Rampage of Revenge”. A must-see movie.
