I think it'll stand the test of time as the benchmark example for turning literature into film. And I say that even though it's fantasy -- which doesn't get a lotta love, per se, in the Hollywood community -- b/c it was done to near perfection clearly as a labor of Jackson's love for the source material.

Best film trilogy ever hands down! I remember the big argument scene in Clerks II where they argue this against the Star Wars Trilogy. Great stuff!

I thought it was flat, with cardboard characters and an over-reliance on violence. IMO, it can't touch the books. (Sorry, I know this is heresy!)
