    I really like the LOTR but TPM was better, I think anyway. It was somehow cooler. :D

    I still don't see how anyone can say that TPM was better than LotR, but as I've said at least ten times now, to his/her own.


    I'm glad everyone enjoyed this pole!

    Sorry, tied again.

    I liked LOTR, I even read all 3 books in a month after I saw it. But TPM had a lot more characters that I loved. The death scene in LOTR, eh, didn't care about that guy.
    But TPM death scene? I was sobbing. Poor Quigy. TPM, no question.

    FotR. I wouldn't call it a masterpiece, but it beats the flat acting and horrible directing of TPM easily.
    I felt great relief when the TPM end credits started to roll...

    sorry, but as much as i love SW, FoTR was just incredible. i am sure i will like AOTC better, but like i said FoTR was awesome.

    I actually found FOTR quite boring, minus a couple of battle moments. I found something really off about the pacing of the movie and that bugs me too much to like it.

    I like Ian McKellan...but thats about it. Oh yeah...and Chris Lee too! :)

    TPM has its flaws. But I think its a better movie than FOTR. But thats just me. I think the big thing is that I found FOTR to be one very long chase scene. To me...that really had no substance. I would like a more complex plot...not saying TPM was far more complex...but it did have more things going on that FOTR did.

    Oh yeah, didnt like any of the music in FOTR. Just didnt do it for me. And to me, music in a movie like this makes half of the movie.

    DB, have you read the LOTR trilogy? it seems from your answer that perhaps you haven't. i recommend you do so. not that it would necessarily change your opinion, but they really are a great read.

    No I havent read them, but I do want to. I am in college so I read too many other books. So in my spare time, I post here a bit, play some hockey, or go see a movie with the girlfriend.

    But maybe after college. :)

    WOW what a question. Although I am a HUGE Star Wars fan like most of you, I'd have to say LOTR was better than TPM.

    The Reason for this is that TPM is the Prequel of all the prequels, it introduces us to everyone and leads us up to the excitement that will take place in AOTC. So i can see where people think TPM was bland or boring. I happened to love it.

    Now, LOTR is a completely different movie. It also is the first of a trilogy, but this movie was CRAZY!!!! All in all they were both GREAT flicks!!! Now I'm just waiting to see AOTC, cuz I think this movie will destroy them all!!!

    I love them both but since LOTR was losing I had 2 vote 4 it.

    Good things about LOTR: LEGOLAS...violence
    Good things about TPM: Darth Maul...Obi-Wan...Qui-Gon...lightsabers...

    Still, Legolas makes up for LOTR

    Well, the movies are the same to me, they both rock, so I'll judge by the novels, and of course the LOTR novel is better than TPM so my vote goes to LOTR.

    You can`t even compare the two.The LOTR is a masterpiece.TPM is the worst episode of the saga.I love SW,but LOTR is a powerful drama,compared to Jar Jar,and Jake Lyold.

    LOTR was good, but I just seemed to be able to connect with TPM more. So TPM wins in MY book.

    LOTR or TPM what?

    btw, shouldn't that be FOTR or TPM? ;)

    i didn't vote, since i'm a firm believer of not playing favorites with your children... or your fandom for that matter.

    As much as I love SW, TPM i think was the worst SW movie so far, even though I did like it. I loved FotR though, so I am voting for it.

    Starwars is great, but LOTR is better, by a long shot, specialy if it's TPM involved in the discussion

    I think that TPM is alot cooler than LOTR because it has Obi-wan Kenobi as a teen!!! He is so cool! What does LOTR have? Little short people named hobbits.
