    Lord of the Rings is to Star Wars what The Dark Knight is to Batman Forever.

    Lord of the Rings is to Star Wars what Cadillac is to Yugo.

    edit: oops, the subtitle clearly shows one of the strong words used in the still image for this video, so I removed it...it was the star wars vs LoTR scene from Clerks 2

    Note: strong language

    The Dark Knight was disappointing as hell.
    Terribly done movie.

    It was meh, The Dark Knight, for all it's praise and lauding, was poorly written and terribly put together.
    The Joker was cool but that's about it.
    Having Christian Bale play Batman, was just awkward, to say the least.

    I prefer the Star Wars movies to the LOTR movies, but the LOTR books are far better than both.

    I think Heath Ledger's Joker is the best character in the Nolan series but Batman Begins was a better film. Christian Bales' weaknesses as Batman were more obvious in the second film, but I still rank him the best Batman to date.

    The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars are both childhood favorites. One is arguably the best Fantasy fiction ever written (I like The Hobbit and the Histories of Middle Earth more though) and the OT is probably the Science-fiction movie series ever made. Both inspire wonder and awe across generations.

    Still, have to go The Lord of the Rings. It's a marvel at every stage of its conception. The level of craftsmanship is astounding. Star Wars was like that for the two movies, but then it began to lose its consistency. Granted, Return of the Jedi was still a strong film. The final confrontation between Luke, Darth Vader, and the Emperor ranks as the most epic moment in Star Wars, but you had to go through some BS to get there.

    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.
