Do you have the patience to watch the director's extended cut trilogy (since the trilogy of films are already long movies by themselves)?
I prefer the extended cuts. Theatrical seems "rushed" a bit. The extended cuts seem better paced.
I also like the extended cuts of The Hobbit 3D.
I did once read on a website a criticism of the extended cuts, saying that the Battle of Helm's Deep was less climatic when angry trees finished off the bad guys (even though that is true to the book). It was more dramatic in the theatrical version when the humans and elves fended off the bad guys without any help from trees.
Also, the Battle of the Pelennor Fields is more dramatic in the theatrical version because the movie doesn't have a scene that reveals that Aragorn will be showing up with the Dead Men of Dunharrow.
The website recommended going extended for the first movie, and theatrical for the last two movies.
I've considered trying to make my own private fanedits to cut out the two offending scenes, but haven't gotten around to attempting it yet.
Are you holding your breath for the $250M Amazon series that may or may not be coming out in 2021?
I wouldn't say holding my breath exactly, but I do plan to see it at some point. I'll have to wait until I can rent the Blu-rays though. I'm not an Amazon Prime subscriber.
