Entertainment Weekly Names LOTR Trilogy No. 2 New Movie Classic

June 20, 2008 at 9:31 am by Calisuri  - 

Sam and FrodoEntertainment Weekly has come out with a list of ‘The 100 New Movie Classics,’ and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, as a whole, has ranked No. 2. EW.com defines a ‘new movie classic’ as ‘films released in the past 25 years stand with the all-time greats.’ Here’s what they have to say about LOTR:

Peter Jackson did the impossible. He filmed an unfilmable novel, he conjured a dark, ravishing vision all his own without desecrating J.R.R. Tolkien’s, he made a nine-hour trilogy that truly lives and breathes like one movie, he got a riveting performance out of a slithery CG cave dweller with a split personality — and, what’s more, he made fantasy a box office monster.

See the full list over at EW.com. Thanks to Ringer Julie for the heads up! [Top 25 List]
