I've only seen the first 20mins of the first LOTR film, then fell asleep.

I've also only seen the last half hour of the 2nd one.

So I voted Star Wars.

Is this a serious question?

The original Star Wars trilogy is by far, the greatest trilogy ever made. The Back to the Future trilogy is solid, but none of them match the quality of Empire or Star Wars.

There's a certain feeling I get when I watch Star Wars that I never got with LOTR, just this sense of wonder and disillusionment. I lose myself in those movies because of its grand scope. Peter Jackson is a better director than George Lucas by far, but visionary?

They aren't even close.

The Lord of the Rings films are FAR from being the "greatest ever made".

Star Wars.

i'd say star wars episode 4 is better than any lotr movie, but since we are comparing the trilogies, i would have to go with lotr.

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

Indeed.

I guess there's no accounting for taste.

You've gotta be kidding. Episode 5 - The Empire Strikes Back - is the best one of them all.

LOTR is an awesome trilogy and kicks the ass of anything in recent memory. But the original Star Wars? No way.

As much as I like Empire and think Star Wars is majestic, iconic and what not... I enjoyed LOTR more. Not only were the movies technically superb, they were great stories with perfect casting! And the actors were not even that well known before LOTR came along. And they were all so perfect for the roles. Shot in beautiful NZ too, which was also perfect!

Star Wars got a little too weird for me sometimes.

lol. I have been meaning to get them on DVD and watch them, but it's a bit of a struggle to really, really want to. I mean, I know the story and have caught enough clips to know what I'm missing and know that I am sure it's spectacular and grand and great all, but I'm not really a fantasy guy. I love the original Star Wars trilogy because it owned my childhood. I did go and see all three of the new SW trilogy and they are in every way to the originals exactly as 00's U2 is to 80s/90s U2 (ooooh). What a fuck up those three films were.... Anyway, point being, it will probably be some time before I see the LOTR films.

The Empire Strikes Back, along with Aliens and Terminator 2 are not only the best sequels ever (and arguably surpass the originals) but are the 3 best action/sci-fi films of all-time.

PS - 2 of them were made by James Cameron
