Tolkien’s Epic Fantasy Turns ‘Best Film of The Decade’

The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien’s work of epic fantasy, was adapted into a radio series broadcast as early as 1955, by BBC. It was made into an animated film in 1978, by Ralph Bakshi.

But the book received much acclaim after the film Trilogy came out in 2001, 2002 and 2003. It has been adapted into many video games, too. Not to mention its predecessors – card games and board games.

Entertainment Weekly has named The Lord of the Rings trilogy as the ‘Best Film of the Decade’ in their magazine poll of the 100 best books, characters, films, series, etc.
