    Lord of the rings as in the movies, not the books.

    No contest.

    I am old enough to have watched ALL of them in the theater by the way.

    Star Wars was a big hit when it came out, I won't pretend it wasn't.

    But Lord of the Rings is a level of magnificence that is just incredible.

    I could watch either repeatedly though.

    I would prefer Lord of the rings because im a sucker for good ol' war movies (with sword fight and ballistas, not the ones with guns). I love how they make strategies and things like that. Starwars on the other hand is just shooting lasers, pow one shot kill.

    I'm with Panzer but I would give a slight edge to Star Wars because that's what I grew up with. LoTR is a little too long and slow in some parts for me to just get into spontaneously - even through the SW prequels are pretty bad they do have some good moments.

    I voted for LOTR on both, but I like how SW keeps expanding.
    Who'd have thought Lucas Arts would come up with a name like Starkiller after a family of Skywalkers?

    I like both series. But I voted star wars because If when watched all the movies in one go (which I have done about 2 years ago), LOTR gave me a horrid headache after a while, and Star Wars did not. Even though no headache is as bad as after watching the new King Kong in theaters.

    Star wars because darth is badass

    and lotr is about elves and orcs and dwarves n shit... dont get me wrong the battles are awesome and epic but otherwise it bores the urine out of my bladder. yes it is that bad. It may have sent me into a spiraling depression where I met my best friends: Jack Daniels, and Mary Jane. then cured me of both addictions only to be a bitch and do it again. and again. and before. and after. WHAT THE FU*K!

    Both are liable to make me want to do bad things to myself or others.

    Gun to head - Star Wars clone wars (the animated ones), failing that new series (got shiny lights to distract me).

    I personally enjoy watching any Star Wars movie over any LoTR. LoTR has some awesome battles but it's really long for my taste I guess.

    LoTR. Just didn't grow up in the same era as Star Wars.
