    Ok, so it's probably been done on here before, and I'm stealing the idea from Kevin Smith and Clerks II, but which Trilogy do you think was the better one?

    I'm kind of on the fence on this one, because I haven't really watched either triolgy, just caught bits of them. However, Star Wars seems to be more in my direction.

    By the by, if this thread proves popular enough, I'll turn this into a tournament to find the most popular movie trilogy on GF. So get voting! :lol:

    This is really hard for me. I can't vote just yet because I'm really not that sure.

    I REALLY love Star Wars, but then again I think Lord of the Rings is one of best made trilogies ever. I absolutely love everything about LOTR.

    Star Wars is amazingly epic though on so many levels. Very tough choice.

    BTW, there are 6 Star Wars movies. ;) Personally I like both SW trilogies equally.

    Yeah, there should be a poll there now.

    I know there are 6 movies, but this only concerns epiodes IV, V, and VI.

    In that case I'm going to go with LOTR for sure. The special effects in the original Star Wars movies are so cheesy and the plot isn't really better than LOTR.

    Yeah, the bits I have seen look like cheesy special effects, but they were state of the art at the time. Besides, the story of Lord of the Rings never really appealed to me.

    Ditto, I enjoy the Star Wars story so much more than LOTR.

    Definitely Lord of the Rings. I tried watching the original Star Wars and just couldn't get into them, maybe because i'd seen the newer ones first.

    Rebeccaaa yellow 4!

    I loooove LOTR. I've only ever caught bits of Star Wars, liked it but never watched it through properly. From what I've seen I really can't see myself liking it better than lord of the rings because that's one of my all time favourites.

    The original Star Wars trilogy, from an objective standpoint, was pretty poorly made and was just decent, nothing more. Excluding the effects and budget of LotR, I think it had a much stronger story and characters, so it wins in my eyes.
