    Lord of the Rings beats those.

    The original star wars trilogy is a work of art, as is LOTR.

    Also the OP should be banned for asking such an unfair question
    People voting for Star Wars should be banned...


    And if you can't take my comment as joke, then you're probably Star Wars Kid.

Right now, though, I just watched the truly epic charges and fight scenes, so I'm going to flip a coin and go with LotR.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    For people who believe some other trilogy should enjoy the title, there is the "Other" option.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Re: Lord of the Rings Trilogy or Star Wars Original Trilogy?

    LOTR win's in my opinion. There could not be a better/closer opponent as Star wars though. I love all the star wars movies and i don't get the stigma against the the first few in the series either, i thought they were really great and they had to live up to the Culture-changing shadow of the first three movies that came out.

    Lotr is a lot more intelligent in my opinion and has much more lasting value. It also changed the fantasy genre forever. I think Lotr will last longer then star wars.

    The LOTR books kick SW's arse, but the SW movies are better than the LOTR ones.

    Re: Lord of the Rings Trilogy or Star Wars Original Trilogy?

    LoTR trilogy was way too dark for me. I can't stand to sit through that much angst and suffering just to get a few good moments and an ending that was more than predictable, even for someone who has never read the books. There were a couple of really good moments, but definitely not enough to justify between 7-9 hours of my time.

    I love the Star Wars movies, 4, 5, and 6. They alternate between ending on a high note and ending on a dark note. And there are some great battles, both personal and in space. Plus, the characters are very enjoyable.
