All Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Movies, Ranked

New Line Cinema


Gandalf once said, “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us,” so I decided to spend my time re-watching every Lord of the Rings movie (including all the Hobbit ones) and ranking them from best to worst. You’re WELCOME.

Needless to say, there’s lots of SCIENCE going on in this post. This ranking is based on extensive surveys and precise mathematical calculations and definitely not my own arbitrary reasoning, so you can disagree if you want to but facts are facts.

Now then! Let’s get to it!
