    Really though...They are two very different epic movies...you can't compare SW and LotR...it's like apples and oranges. To each his own.

    tbh I dunno why, but Anakin in the prequel movies seems like an absolute emo to me in Revenge of the Sith. :S

    Billy Blanks makes Gandalf look like a wussy.

    No one makes Gandalf look wussy. Gandalf makes EVERYONE look wussy. (almost everyone.)
    My vote goes to Lord of the Rings, of course.

    tbh the original SW trilogy was one of the best I've ever seen. Maybe even above LOTR. Unfortunately though the SW prequels just screwed everything. I never even expected Anakin to be so much an emo. :S

    I voted Star Wars, the original trilogy, the new ones were shite. The LOTR movies were pretty lame in my mind, and i haven't even read the novels... Star Wars is just crack up.

    I voted LOTR, for the one reason that I was too young to understand Star Wars when I watched it.. And Lord of the Rings has very strapping young men in it :p

    (I'm married, exclusively, sorry Orli)

    Well if we can exclude things, then I exclude the first 2hrs of the phantom menace and call it a masterpiece!

    Phantom Menace was nice but Fellowship of the Ring was epic.

    It's really close, but for me it comes down to one thing.

    Fantasy > Science Fiction.

    bit of a tough decision for me. I really like both, but i chose LOTR, since I've spent more time with it, so to speak.

    Yeah, I chose Star Wars, because, frankly, if you're going up against an army of bloodthirsty raiders, do you really want a sword? :nono: No! You want an AT-AT or an ARC-170! Lasers are superior to arrows!

    I want a radio so I can call in an airstrike. There is no human problem that can not be solved with the judicious application of napalm.
