The best film trilogy of all time? The Lord of the Rings will most likely be the first on that list, and today, Netflix nabbed all three movies.

Based on the novels by JRR Tolkien, these three films masterfully adapt the story of Frodo Baggins taking the ring of power to Mount Doom to defeat Sauron.

As we somewhat predicted earlier in the week, the three movies now streaming on Netflix are sadly not the beloved extended versions of Peter Jackson’s trilogy.
