I have to go with the one that had more of an impact on me. Though ROTK is great, I felt SW did more for me. Very close though.

LOTR is one of my most favoritest works of literature ever, and the movies were spectacular, but STAR WARS has influenced every Sci-Fi movie made since, and all on a pretty low budget.

I went with LOTR for the following reason. They are both incredible films. Both will / have had tremendous impact on their genre. The thing of it is, Star Wars has had time to develop into the phenom that it currently is. 20 years down the road, LOTR could be even bigger. It's impossible to say at this point. So from a personal standpoint and forgetting about what impact these films could have / have had on the industry I will say that LOTR was to me the better film. But this was a close one.

ROTK!

Sauron would kick Vader's ass around the Deathstar and back again...

...and none of the heroes in ROTK whine like Luke does... not once.

All you to do is think Star Wars vs. ROTK... not Empire Strikes Back vs. ROTK... now that would have been a tougher call.

... I prefer ROTK, it made me care about the characters much more. It will age well, too, Star Wars is sort of cheezy these days, especially with those horrible scene-segues.

Gotta go with the original. Sure it may be dated 25 years later, but does that mean it loses it's imprortance? Of course not. Did the Godfather loose it's quality when Star Wars came along? Of course not. I am biased based on my age, since the pleasures of your youth are always better (we almost always) more important in your memory than of the present.

Star Wars vs. ROTK... no contest. Luke is a whiny loser.

Empire Strikes Back vs. ROTK... that would be a tough call.


As soon as you remember you are judging JUST Star Wars episode iv and not all three of the original star wars against ROTK it is a lot easier to choose ROTK.

What the hell is going on around here!

People talking DOWN to Darth fucking Vader!

That's right Darth FUCKING Vader, he has an unofficial FUCKING in the middle of his name because he's such a bad motherfucker. Sauron would not beat Vader, only his stupid prissy jewelry could come close, and as if the Dark Lord wouldn't simply slice that tool's hand off with his light sabre and proceed to ruin his shit all over the motherfucking place! Don't see Darth fucking Vader wearing stupid girly rings do ya? He's out there punishing incompetent Imperial commanders and filthy rebel scum. Moreover, as if the Death Star couldn't just explode Middle Earth while Gandalf and friends were sleeping in their collective proverbial beds. Gonna 'magically' stop a gigantic motherfucking laser Gandalf? No actually you're going to just shrivel up and die!



That being said, LOTR is pretty good. Nevertheless I maintain that Wookie>Cave Troll

Ok first of all, Darth Vader doesn't have an arse ok, in the words of Obi Wan: 'He's more machine now than man, twisted and evil'

Moreover, theoretically if Vader did have an arse to be kicked, he'd choke you like a fucking chicken before you even got close to him. Having crushed your throat he's say something appropriately badarse like: 'Dispose of this creature' and then walk away without a second thought...

Lord of the Rings - The Return of the Kings rules for this era without a doubt.

I voted for Star Wars because of the Lucas ingenuity he brought to space travel and sci fi creativity. The original Star Wars was such a fresh look at an old subject and with the limited technology of that era Lucas was able to pull off an amazing blockbuster feat of film making.

ADRIENNNNNNNNNNNNNNN ADRIENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN


Moreover: DIE SCUM I KILL YOU. Make no mistake: Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones are NOT Star Wars films. Obviously Lucas has been killed and replaced with a evil ctborg copy or he is simply on crank. Whatever, the point is, those do not count! Plus, we all know Hayden 'You skin is soft and smooth, not like sand which is coarse and rought' Christenfuckwit is NOT Anikin Skywalker, nor is Temura Morrison Boba Fett's dad, that's fucking ridiculous.
