What's it gonna' be? "Star Wars" or "Lord of the Rings"? I know it's early for LOTR, but if the first 2 were any indication, I'm hoping the third will be a good closer! In terms of Star Wars, let's just use Episodes IV-VI.

My fraternity bro let me borrow the DVD set of Back to the Future. Man I'm going to have a hard time giving it back to him!

But as for the two above it's hard to say. Star Wars and LotR both have their cult followings which I see as equal.

Ahhh, this is such a controversial subject. For me, Stars Wars is boring (personal opinion) and is something of the 70s. Lord of the Rings is so fabulously done, and the books are awesome. I enjoy lotr way more than star wars. Oh well, everyone has an opinion. :)
always,

I'm right with you. I've never really liked any of the Star Wars movies. And only the first Back to the Future was any good.

The poll leaves out a lot of good trilogies, though:
Lethal Weapon I-III
Die Hard I-III
The Godfather I-III
etc...

All, right, yeah those are all great trilogies, however, the STAR WARS trilogy is just a classic Epic. Don't get me wrong, LOTR, great movies, even better if you've read the books like me, but STAR WARS is the original bad boy of Epic Movies. Well, that is my two cents.

I have to admit, both Star Wars & Lord of the Rings were really good movies. But LOTR rawked my world!! It's the best & I'm sure #3 will live up to my expectations. There's my opinion...

I would definitely need to say the SW trilogy simply because Star Wars was the first movie I EVER SAW. I saw it in a drive-in theater (did I just totally age myself?). So it definitely has more personal value to me.

In terms of "quality" of material, one must take a step back and look at the issue objectively.

Lucas himself has stated on many instances that much of the material and character archetypes were derived from the LOTR books. He just dressed it up in technology and put it in outer space.

If anyone would like me to draw the connections in characters, plots, and sub-plots, I would love to discuss that as well.

Back to my training...
