    yeah, but it was never the same. don't forget, if it weren't for those last few seasons we would have never been subjected to "Joanie loves Chachi"

    Gungans didn't bother me as much as Anakin accidently blowing up a space station and shouting, "Yahoo!" Given the choice between editing out that or Jar-Jar Binks, I'd keep Binks.

    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.

    LOTR. Better acting, better looking actresses, more drama, more feeling, more.... well, just plain more.


    There's more romantic chemistry in 5 seconds of longing looks between Aragorn and the daughter of Elrond than in the entire Star Wars films.

    More drama and excitement in the Charge of the Rohirrim on the plains of Gondor than in all of SW Episode 3.

    I'd rank the LOTR movies about even with star wars. The LOTR books beat both movies by a decent margin.

    In general, LOTR was far more epic, in terms of movie quality.

    But part of that is due to the avilablity of CGI and the like.

    Star Wars, you may recall, is slightly older (at least in movie terms) than LOTR.

    Old Star Wars with current movie-making Tech - would potentially beat LOTR in epicness - I mean, after all, they have all of a galaxy to play with, as opposed to a single planet.

    That said, I normally prefer the book version of any given story over the movie/TV version - so much more can be put into a book.

    I even liked many of the various books set after or during the Star Wars movies better (in some cases) than the movies themselves.

    Blah, it still has futuristic type machines and things of that nature. But, who knows, maybe mankind already destroyed the earth once or twice. Maybe we already have explored the galaxies.
