Hard to vote for any of these.

LotR was interesting in spots, but suffered badly from being a heavily edited version of much better books, with a certain amount of nonsense inserted because Peter Jackson said so.

Original Star Wars is badly let down by Return of the Jedi, which is crap.

The prequels are all much worse than RotJ.

Jackson and crew took the world's most loved book and gave us a big screen adaptation I'd venture noone alive could have surpassed. It is as close to perfection as anyone could possibly have come. It was emotional to witness Tolkien and Lee's work honored so faithfully and with utter devotion by all involved in the production of those three pieces of cinematic history.

As much as I love Star Wars, this is a very easy decision.

Star Wars, has to be the most influential sci fi saga of all time, LOTR is lacking.

Star Wars was a rip off of Kirby's New Gods.

Im only 30 so never got to see it in the cinema but I imagine finding out vader was Luke's father would have been the most unreal thing ever.

Also considering I have an imperial logo tattooed on me I better vote star wars.

LOTR has Christopher Lee, massive legend that he is!

All three LOTR films are also really consistent unlike Star Wars but nothing comes close to the power of the 'The Empire Strikes Back'...what a masterpiece!

...so for me its Star Wars all the way, the original trilogy not the recent rubbish.

Star Wars 4-6. If I pretend that I had never seen either trilogy I would probably enjoy Star Wars more. Why? Because LOTR suffers from that typical modern Hollywood problem which afflicts so called great films, that is crap characterisation in favour of steaming through the plot. Apart from Gollum most of the characters were just forgettable and I didn't identify with them because they were too conventional. The only problem with Star Wars 4-6 is the Ewoks. Star Wars just inches past LOTR for me and its essentially because the Ewoks incur a -1000 penalty in my scoring system.

That's true man, thanks for the reminder though I had to check.

I grew up with the original trilogy so i'm not that familiar with the recent ones, once was enough for me.
