CHECK IT OUT! The New, The Classic, The Obscure: The Wonderful World of Rentals

Alex Barker

Middle Earth bound! In celebration of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, we give you three excellent adventure films to get you in the mood. Forth Eolingas!

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World2003

Epic voyages across the seas. Magnificent sights of ocean and islands. Moments of great courage and brotherhood among crew and captain. These are but a few of the reasons to watch this masterfully directed Peter Weir film. Dwarfed by the colossal Lord of the Rings: Return of the King back in 2003, Master and Commander is a film that reverts to the classic age of adventure films, all the while retaining modern sensibilities of today’s filmmaking. Up for the high seas? Hold fast.

Chicken Run, 2000

The chickens are revolting! Join Ginger, Rocky, Fowler and a whole mess of the poultry gang as they attempt to scratch out a dastardly escape from the clutches of their cruel farm owners Mr. & Mrs. Tweedy. Made by the brilliant minds of Aardman (Wallace and Gromit), this film is incredibly inventive and fun. You may want to hatch an escape plan of your own after these chickens, ahem … fly the coop.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, 2002

The most adventurous of the three Lord of the Rings films, this story is so chock-full of action, it would be enough for at least 2 adventure films put together. While the rumors of war are raging, we get a glimpse of the One Ring’s effect on Middle Earth in the perspective of the Fellowship, now broken in pieces throughout the land. Though battles and great trials ensue, the strength of friendship grow ever stronger, leading us to truly believe Sam’s heartfelt response to why are they fighting. “There’s good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.”
