Hi guys! I'm the OP :) I'm 19, and my boyfriend's 20. I thought LotR was better, personally. To be fair, I've only seen one of the Star Wars movies, and he's only seen half of one of the LotR movies, so we were both a little biased. This was last night though, and by the morning, it was forgotten. We're all good now. Thanks for your comments! :)

This issue isn't that they like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. I love both of those things. Fighting about those things though, to the point where you aren't even on speaking terms? That is childish as fuck.

76 has it! Its childish, because its Lord of The Rings! First fantasy series ever, defined the genre. We wouldnt have Star Wars without The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. And before you say how Star Wars was the first of its kind and defined. . just stop that thought right there, it wasn't. It was great, but not the same as being LOTR.

@206 Please read my post before you say you agree with me. Something being "First" doesn't make it better. A good example is the song "Hurt" originally done by Nine Inch Nails. Johnny Cash did a cover and it was astounding, most people agree that it was better than the original. As I said earlier, I love both LotR and Star Wars, but whether one or the other is better is completely subjective.

It's not Star Wars.

Technically I feel that since they are both different genres a fair comparison cannot be achieved and they are both awesome in they're own lore.

I agree, they are too different. You can't really compare sci-fi and fantasy. It's apples to oranges. Now a fight between Star Wars and Star Trek, or LOTR and GOT, those would be popcorn worthy debates.

I can appreciate Star Wars for being a classic but now a days the plot line just seems too simple.

Nothing beats epic space battles with laser swords. Lord of the rings is cool but will never be as cool as Star Wars.

What happened to the classics PlayStation vs Xbox, Coca vs Pepsi, Harry Potter vs LOTR, Apple vs Samsung? And the ultimate, the polemic Atheists vs Religious? Those were popcorn worthy for sure.

I agree, both are two different titans and shouldn't be compared to one another. They're both beautiful and awesome in their own respect and one shouldn't choose over which one. I can agree that when you're passionate about one or the other, or even both, and get into talking about them but the silent treatment, that's kinda goofy.

and LOTR is just a cheap knockoff of Beowulf... If we get into the whole 'who copied who' debate, pop culture as we know it would be rendered null and void. The root of creativity is inspiration.

I find LOTR to be more related to the bible than to Beowulf. Sauron is in essence just an angel like being defying a God like being. And Gandalf's resurrection sounds like another well known figure who also comes back to lead a final battle.

Hate to break it to ya, Star Wars fans, but Star Wars is a sci-fi AND fantasy story. The Force is magic and the Sith and Jedi are wizards.

Depends if you're referring to book Lord of the Rings or movie Lord of the Rings. Book Lord of the Rings wipes the floor with Star Wars. But Star Wars is better than movie Lord of the Rings.

Sometimes you have to agree each thing has better aspects and worse aspects. This is not the time for that, because Star Wars is obviously better. :)

Uhh lord of he rings all the way!

By  mattzawesome  |  28

I'm actually genuinely interested in what would win. I think I slightly side with Star Wars

By  Thoricsteam20  |  24

Lord of the Rings is better.

The abomination called the Hobbit trilogy is not part of Lord of the Rings. However the short but epic book titled The Hobbit is worthy of praise.
