Peter Jackson’s adaptations of JRR Tolkien’s classic Lord of the Rings novels still come in the short list of great movie adaptations of books. Though the Hobbit movies are not that bad themselves, the original trilogy still remains the best. Here are 10 reasons why:
1. The films came out back to back. No ‘waiting for a decade to see the next’ sequel there
2. The trilogy earned 30 nominations and won 17 awards at the Oscars
3. The trilogy used as well as invented groundbreaking special-effects to recreate the scenes from the book
4. One of the best parts of the trilogy — Gollum (my preciousss…..)! Created with motion-capture technology in a first, actor Andy Serkis brought something impossible to life that we love to hate even now
5. By staying true to roots, the makers used old-school techniques like trick photography and miniatures in order to bring Middle-earth to life

6. Howard Shore’s Oscar-winning music score for the trilogy ranks with the best of the best
7. Post the theatrical release, the DVD release of the films with added deleted scenes and a sneak-peek in behind the scenes made the trilogy even more fan-favourite than it already was
8. The great script that only did Tolkien’s books justice, but also brought the audience to see past the the trolls, the wizards, and the Hobbits, and recognize the underlying message of humanity
9. Lord of the Rings set the trend of ‘midnight screenings’ where fans would gather in costumes to celebrate the first show
10. The epicness of the films, from exquisite battle scenes to mesmerizing nature to crazy-good characters, the trilogy proved to be grand in every way possible
Very few films, whether independent movie or trilogy or a series, have been able to surpass the enigma that LOTR series was and always will be.
