Extra! Extra! Frodo Lives Forever!

And here's a piece that claims that Peter Jackson hasn't given us the authoritative The Lord of the Rings movie treatment, but only an interpretation of Tolkien's book; and that (with the cost of special effects continuing to decline, and the quality of those effects continuing to increase) there will be remakes every twenty years or so.

Considering that Jackson was not the first attempt to bring The Lord of the Rings to the big screen, it's hard for me to disagree.
