This could very well be the best movie I've ever seen - possibly the best movie ever made. Is there anything LOTR ROTK doesn't have? Action, story, special effects, music, costumes, sets, it has everything. Throw in the anticipation of waiting years for the whole package to be finished and you've got an all-time epic.
Director Peter Jackson and his cronies got what they deserved with the 11 Oscars this film was awarded. And based on current total at the box office this will likely top Titanic as the all time leader in gross receipts.
The movie itself told the final chapter of Frodo Baggins' (Elijah Wood) quest to destroy the Ring of Power. There's just so much to see in this film that everyone just has to watch it. Based on its numbers, I suspect everyone already has.
