Lord of the Rings
Where do we even begin with the Lord of the Rings? The trilogy, that came out to theaters at the beginning of the 2000s, revolutionized the industry of special effects. The film features an imagined world comprised almost entirely out of special effects, namely CGI.
From the hobbits to elves, dwarfs and let’s not forget the Orcs, perhaps the greatest success of the film regarding CG animation is the controversial character of Gollum, which is comprised of both great acting on the part of the actor (who incidentally plays Kong as well) and perfect animation work.
