I was just watching the Early Show, and they had their “holiday movies” segment, and Lisa Shwarzbaum, who wrote the “A” Entertainment Weekly LOTR review, definately praised LOTR out of all the movies they talked about.

She said she thought Peter Jackson (“sort of a director nobody’s heard about”) had “made a classic out of a classic”. She had this genuine glowing look about her while talking about the movie. She also said that she had never read a word of Tolkien, and yet she was mesmerized, and at the end, she once again returned to LOTR, and told everyone they should go see it!
