And Some things that should not have been forgotten, were lost..
History became legend, legend became myth,
And for two and a half thousand years, the Ring passed out of all knowledge.

The Lord of the Rings came to mivie theaters in December of 2001 and was definatly a hit. The movie was nominated thirteen times and won four Oscars. Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay. The movie is definatly up there as one of the ultime great movies. I personaly give this movie four out of four stars. Although it is a good movie, It is not recomended to children due to the fact that there are a lot of adult themes, and some of the creatures may scare young children. I have included some information about the Movie that fans should know.
