Lord Of The Rings - Return Of The King
(New Line, 2003)
The triumphant conclusion to this epic saga, an unmitigated success, this time nominated for and winning all eleven Oscars it was up for, including Best Picture, and Best Director for Peter Jackson - one of the few times even the Oscar is an understatement - and managing to rake in $1.1 billion worldwide along the way.
(Hopefully, somewhere, two dozen development execs who likely turned the project down over the years quietly sobbed in soul-crushed agony before slitting their wrists.)
Oh, and it's also a great flick.
