It's not often that I like the movie as much as the book, but the movies for the Lord of the Rings triology were superb! A bit different than the books, but the writers and director did an excellent job of narrowing down such long books that had such detail.

LOTR: Return of the King won Best Picture and Best Director in 2003. It won a total of ELEVEN Academy Awards that year! Which is amazing for a film, let alone a fantasy film.

The extra footage on the extended versions of the trilogy, as well as the TON of extra footage on the DVD sets is so much fun to watch. I love the backstory, and hearing what the crew went threw as they filmed three movies simultaneously.
