    well thats a really hard choice and kinda unfair. I mean what r we voting on here? All around movie? EFFECTS? STORY? I have seen LotR 4 times. Its still a great movie to sit through. But I have seen TPM like 400 times. And when LoTR comes to DVD in august,im sure i'll be watching it a lot also. I also heard somtime in march or april that THE TWO TOWERS trailer is gonna be in the LoTR movie. Thanx for your time....MTFBYW

    TPM and LOTR are both good. TPM is better. There was something missing from LOTR.

    FotR is my favorite non-SW movie. Therefore I voted for TPM.

    TPM, though I haven't read any of the LOTR books I HAVE seen the movie. Though I liked it, I liked TPM better.

    For the films:

    I liked TPM heaps better. Although LOTR is really good too.

    For the books:

    I liked TPM heaps Fellowship was good but not as good (probally because it is only the first part of the LOTR).

    I think that the whole LOTR however, both books and films will be a close second to the SW books and films. ;)

    I liked the LOTR better, mainly because it had more character development, than TPM did. And it seemed like a much dirtier film. In TPM everything seemed too clean and premade. LOTR actually made you believe that you were there travelling with the Fellowship. While TPM made you feel like you were watching your best friend play a video game.

    Whilst I liked TPM, I just feel that LOTR was alot better. But I still prefer the OT over LOTR.

    LotR. I was drawn into Middle Earth, whereas the onyl part of TPM I felt involved in was the Podrace.

    TPM was too sterile. I miss the OT feel, and I felt the same epic storyline, the heroism of the characters of the OT, in LotR.

    TPM because Star Wars is what this JC is all about. I fear most people have forgotten that.

    LOTR!!! :D

    I know that this forum is about Star Wars, but TPM doesn't compare to LOTR... I hope that AOTC will.

    LOTR RULES!!! :D

    As a continiuty story, TPM is better, but standalone, FotR is much better.

    The opening battle of FotR is more intriuging and exiting than the Gungan battle, the characters have more life, the acting is way better, and the cgi in FotR is more believable.

    I have to say LOTR because it was way better then TPM. Come on people you all have to agree with me that TPM was the worst of the four movies made so far. LOTR excels TPM in movie and character quality.

    TPM was fun, but FOTR was a much better film.

    FOTR was a better movie than TPM. TPM was cool, but it was missing emotion and sense of depth that was more apparent in the OT...

    LOTR IS WINNING!!! YAY!!! :D

    I actually liked TPM - for the sake of continuity, and also because of the cool lightsaber battles. But as a stand alone movie, LOTR was DEFINITELY better. :D

    TPM is good, I liked it. After all, it's the first chapter of our beloved space saga... ;)

    But LOTR:FOTR (as a single movie) is much better than TPM (as a single movie). :D

    On a technical and thematic level, Fellowship of the Ring is the superior piece. Unfortunately, I just found it to be too bloody boring.

    I'm going to have to go with TPM on this one Regis.
