Welcome to the year of the Dragon! While many of you might be scurrying around trying to make good on this year's prospects of fortune, taking an hour or two to veg-out in front of a big screen is a relaxing indulgence no one would hold you accountable for. Here, then, are the best Hollywood and Chinese films to hit cinemas this February and March.|
War Horse – February 28th, 2012
From director Steven Spielberg comes a war epic motion picture set during World War 1. It is based on a children's novel of the same name as well as the 2007 stage adaptation. The story is about a boy named Albert and his horse Joey. It may sound like a mushy flop of a film, but the story is punctuated by depth and complexity of emotion and personality which are set against the monolithic and faceless events of World War 1.
When the war breaks out, Joey is sent to the front to fight against the German forces, eventually being captured by them. The story is an accessible one, laced with emotional anticipation and broad appeal. What else could you expect from Spielberg, the master of cinema?
