IMO [In reply to] Can't Post

SW is more "fun" while LotR is more grand/epic/emotional/immersive.

However, agreed that the Prof's books are certainly even more of all those things than the films. Wink

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, with axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

Normally agree with pretty much everything you write [In reply to] Can't Post

But this time i had to vote for LOTR over star wars. For me it could be down to i was not alive when Star Wars came out and so they were already massive when i watched them and i had so much expectation for them. The only good star wars film is the empire strikes back whereas the LOTR all three are good, although FOTR is excellent. So for me its 3 films to 1 making LOTR the better franchise.

Obviously many people will disagree with this but the wooden acting, terrible cgi (way before my time), terrible dialogue just makes it hard to like them.

I think they should have put the alien franchise up there as well. Alien and Aliens are both really great with good acting and have distinct identities - as everyone knows different actors.

I'm not voting [In reply to] Can't Post

Star Wars = #1 Sci-fi.
LotR = #1 Fantasy.

Take that, ya punks!

Star Trek [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To

I wouldn't expect the opinions from this forum or others to be objective because the poll is highly self-selecting. i.e., Star Trek would win on a Star Trek forum. ;)


Star Trek would have won if somebody had alerted George Takei on Facebook in time.

My vote [In reply to] Can't Post

I voted for Star Wars, of course, because Peter Jackson's films are blasphemy and not true to the books.

However, my vote was cancelled out because my worst friend, Bqggz the Orc, hacked into my computer again and voted for Lord of the Rings. He is, I am loth to say it, an existential maniac.

Why? [In reply to] Can't Post

I think Star Wars is the better 'franchise'.
