The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)

Director: Peter Jackson

Starring: Shitloads of little people and stuff

More Info: IMDB

Tagline: There can be no triumph without loss. No victory without suffering. No freedom without sacrifice.

Plot: The former Fellowship of the Ring prepare for the final battle for Middle Earth, while Frodo & Sam approach Mount Doom to destroy the One Ring.

My Rating: 9.5/10

Can't believe it. Jackson made each film better than the last. Suck it, George Luca$. Amazing climactic battle. Emotional ending. And, despite the much ballyhooed publicity surrounding the premiere of the film, no Sam and Frodo kiss. The whole saga is an remarkable achievement for everyone involved. It could've used some elf nudity by way of Liv Tyler and Cate Blanchett. That would have been brilliant. But still, it's a decent film. Viva la one-eyed monster!
