Here's a change of pace, instead of a trailer for a movie that's coming out in a few weeks or months, this World War I documentary has already had its theatrical release. I saw it last night with my Movie Buddy and all I can say is what an incredible movie experience this is.

This is from Peter Jackson (yes, the same Peter Jackson who made "The Lord of the Rings", "The Hobbit", "King Kong", "The Frightners") and a combination of his personal interest in WWI (his grandfather served) and his company's technological expertise has taken hundreds of hours of B&W archival movie footage and BBC interviews with WWI veterans and turned them into a must-see documentary about how ordinary British teenagers enlisted, were trained, lived, traveled by train, ship, and foot to the Belgium and French front lines, and what awaited them there.

I'm not sure when this will be available to buy or rent, but trust me, you need to see this movie. If you're lucky enough to see it on the big screen, it really makes an impression when the movie transitions from the traditional B&W documentary to widescreen color footage.

After the credits, Peter Jackson came on screen and gave a 15-20 minute talk on all of the technical challenges they faced, along with the practical "what's this movie about?" decisions.
