"The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" took on the mantle of Oscar front-runner for best picture of 2003 on Saturday night as it won the highest honor for a film given by the Producers Guild of America. Ten of the 14 previous winners of the Guild's Darryl F. Zanuck Award for theatrical motion picture have gone on to win the best picture Oscar from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, making it a key indicator in the battle for filmdom's highest prize.

Just about everybody and everything connected to "Wilder Napalm" (selected theaters) is terrible, starting with that title. Don't expect a Vietnam movie. In fact, don't expect a movie. Wilder (Arliss Howard) and Wallace (Dennis Quaid) are estranged brothers in the Cain and Abel mold, with a Stephen King-ish twist. Both have pyro-kinetic powers--they can will fires into roaring life.

"Imagine you're feeling a little like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole," someone says in the dazzling and disorienting "The Matrix," and who has the strength to argue? A wildly cinematic futuristic thriller that is determined to overpower the imagination, "The Matrix" combines traditional science-fiction premises with spanking new visual technology in a way that almost defies description. Like it or not, this is one movie that words don't come close to approximating.

John Woo is known for a cinema of violent delirium so breathtaking it plays like visual poetry, and "Face/Off," though his third film in Hollywood, is the first to expose mainstream audiences to the master at his most anarchically persuasive. But, as those who've seen the director's cult favorite Hong Kong movies like "A Better Tomorrow," "The Killer" and "Hard Boiled" can testify, Woo is also known for the sincerely sentimental underpinnings of his work.

The special extended-edition DVD of "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" arriving today is a class act -- a veritable "everything you wanted to know" about the film. That shouldn't be a surprise, considering that the extended version of "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" was one of last year's best DVD releases.

It's been a while since we've had a murder mystery where the lead character talks about the strange things people do under a full moon. "China Moon," starring Ed Harris as a homicide detective who becomes involved in a crime of passion with a sulky, abused millionaire's wife in Central Florida, played by Madeleine Stowe, is full of portentous mumbo-jumbo. It's also full of hard-boiled attitudes out of James M. Cain and Raymond Chandler.

Hollywood has well-known ways of teasing reality into movie magic, winking at factual accuracy. In a new film about Easter Island, that imaginative tradition meshes with a pattern of myth and fantasy already overshadowing the blurry past of this remote Pacific outpost. Some archeologists, trying to piece together an accurate picture of the island's cultural heritage, are unhappy over what Hollywood has done.
