The Duke's career as a cowboy spanned over half a century, but his earlier westerns usuaally get all the attention: Stagecoach made him a star; Rio Bravo and The Searchers made John Wayne a household name. But what about his later forays on horseback? Rooster Cogburn memorably paired him with Katharine Hepburn. True Grit earned him his only Oscar. His costar for The Shootist was Lauren Bacall. Weigh in on John Wayne's final ten Westerns. Which one is your favorite?
Stellar performances, breathtaking scenery, and stunning visual effects made The Lord of the Rings one of the greatest cinematic franchises of all-time. But very few trilogies can claim to have an equally impressive beginning, middle, and end. And here's a look at the top ten reasons why AMC can't get enough of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers...
10. John Rhys-Davies on Double Duty
Three hours of bloodshed is exhausting, especially for Ryhs-Davis who comes to the rescue in two roles, not one. As Ent elder Treebeard, his gravitas makes for moments of peaceful reflection while his comical Dwarf King Gimli steals scenes... just don't tell the elf.
9. The Nazgûl a.k.a. The Dark Riders
How do you make the former bearers of the Nine Rings even more terrifying than the last time? Put them on winged creatures that fly. That's how.
8. The Love Triangle
Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Arwen (Liv Tyler) are in love, but since he's a mortal and she's not, there are issues -- among them Eowyn (Miranda Otto) with whom Aragorn has an instant attraction. As complicated interspecies romances go, this one is a winner.
