Yes, but the ewoks were a smaller part of the overall story than the hobbits. I can take annoying in small doses.

But yes, ROTJ was the worst of the 3 original Star Wars flicks. Which doesn't mean it's bad by any stretch.

And yet it is still better than Episode I + II...

Gawd, this is as bad as that Harrison Ford poll...

I can't believe LOTR is beating Star Wars...

episode 5 and 6 weren't half as good as episode 4.


The Empire Strikes Back remains one of the greatest achievements in cinema. It's one of the 10 best american-made films ever. And
don't even get me started on just how bad the LOTR sequels actually are. The Return of the King is a farce. Incredibly mediocre.

Star Wars, all the way, and to everyone that voted LOTR, go watch more films.

By that logic, shouldn't you like the Hobbits?

They're only three apples tall (or is that Smurfs?).

I mean I liked LOTR a lot but really I could not watch them again or at least for a long time. When I was younger my brothers always made me watch Star Wars and well I never got bored of them no matter how many times I watched the films, so it wins hands down!

I'm a bit confused what you mean here. Lucas started to write Star Wars in the early 70's and completed it a few years later. Not exactly a long time.

A Final Hope? You mean A New Hope?




What irks me about LORT is a.) Too much downtown, lots of walking and Hobbit banter. b.) Gimli - by the third movie he was just comic relief, and not real funny at that. Watch the scene when they walk through the skull cave place, it's uncomfortably unfunny, for me anyways.

I am going with SW because it was originally movies and made that way, so that is the view we get of it while LOTR was books first. In some ways it's harder to deal with it knowing the books first and having my own ideas about characters and scenes preconceived in my head that may not jive with the moviemaker's view. I like the movies though, but not as much as the books.

If we were voting for LOTR the books vs Star Wars the movies, LOTR blows star wars way. But movie to movie, Star Wars wins.

Han/Leia love story > Aragorn/Arwen love story
The Emperor/Tarkin/Darth Vader > Sauron/Saruman/Witch King
Jedi Knights > Dunedain (though close)
Lightsaber = Narsil
Stormtroopers = orcs
Ewoks < Hobbits
Ben Kenobi < Galdalf
Chewbacca > Gimli & Legolas combined
Ep IV battles > FOTR battles
EP V battles = TTT battles
Ep VI battles < ROTK battles
Han Solo > Aragorn
Artoo & Threepio < Merry & Pippin
AT AT > Mumakill
Death Star > Mordor


Star Wars 8
LOTR 4
Tied 3

LOTR were just too long and boring.

No contest, Star Wars wins.
