Assisted by a Fellowship of heroes, Frodo Baggins plunges into a perilous trek to take the mystical One Ring to Mount Doom so that it and its magical powers can be destroyed and never possessed by evil Lord Sauron. The astonishing journey begins in the first film of director/co-writer Peter Jackson’s epic trilogy that redefined fantasy filmmaking. This imaginative foray into J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth won 4 Academy Awards®* and earned 13 total nominations including Best Picture.

When you put them all together, it's a wonderful experience.
Oh, yeah, and the story works too ;-)
You may nevertheless have some issues with the translation. (That’s inevitable, given that we often take personally things we have first read.) For me, the feel was a bit off over certain sections — for instance, initially, it’s too twee — and I don't care for some of Elijah Wood’s performance or, in fairness, what may have been Jackson’s directions to Wood. (In the book, Frodo was one tough nut. Here, he shows less resilience.) And the Middle Earth I saw in my head when I read the book does not always correspond to Jackson’s vision. For instance, I didn’t see Moria as an open-architecture mine and some of Lothlorien feels manufactured.
But none of this prevents me from enjoying the film again and again without notable effort. Sometimes I stream it for background noise when I’m working (we also have a free copy from Google Movies) and then find myself watching more than working.
Then I stop working entirely and settle in for the long haul.
