Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

Although I largely consider the new age special effects of most films these days to be rather overrated and unworthy of a trip to the theatre, I must say that Peter Jackson's stunning World War I documentary, They Shall Not Grow Old (2018), stands out as an exception and is more than worth the time, money, and effort. 

Wearing those wonky 3D glasses and all, I ventured out to see the film recently and came away impressed with the stylistic application of those effects to bring what previously had been black-and-white, grainy footage of the infamous trench warfare in the First World War (or "The Great War) to life in a way I assure you that will be original and, again, well worth the outing to your local theatre.

Filmed from the British perspective, the documentary succeeds in covering a vast array of topics related to the young, determined, idealistic but ultimately battle-weary troops without losing focus of its overarching purpose of just how nasty this war was in terms of the battlefield gore.

Using state-of-the-art technology and materials from the BBC and Imperial War Museum, filmmaker Peter Jackson allows the story of World War I to be told by the men who were there. Life on the front is explored through the voices of the soldiers, who discuss their feelings about the conflict, the food they ate, the friends they made and their dreams of the future.
