Not only a great movie and a wonderful use of a big budget, but a revolution in filmmaking the scale of which comes only once in a decade. Unfortunately, this was also one of the last epics which used the rule "less is more" when it came to visual effects. And by that I mean the idea to only use CGI when absolutely necessary. Jackson pulled it off beautifully with prosthetics, composite shots, amazing locations and "bigatures" for an audience which has come to accept CG brainblasting.
