Bro are you on fucking crack? Lotr absolutely shits on 99% of blockbusters coming out today. If you are talking about the effects you are wrong. CGI has been absolute trash lately, and practical effects beats even the best CGI in most cases. WRONG! If you are talking about the movies themselves, you are even more wrong. Just incomprehensibly wrong. As a matter of fact, when i rewatched them a year ago, my biggest takeaway was: Man, i wish they still made movies like this. The Hobbit movies have aged MUCH worse. And they are just a few years old. I can't anymore with all these retarded hot takes popping up lately...
