I cant stand either of them. LOTR is just the adult version of harry potter. Ok yeah it came first or whatever. Watched one of those in the theater and it just went on and on forever. almost 3 hours of that goblins and wizard ****, I cant take it anymore. I remember the last half hour the screen kept going black and me and my buddies thought it was finally over then it would come back and still keep going.

let's not get carried away now.

the sheer inventive effort that went into creating middle earth is very impressive and tolkien did a good job at emulating the folkloric tradition, but he was not a particularly competent writer.

1. Yes he was
2. The breadth of history that he created for his world is staggering. There's as much history of Middle Earth as there is for America haha it's unbelievable.

I've seen LOTR plenty of times such they keep replaying it on encore, so its watered down after many years. But I remember upon first viewing that they were amazing. Harry potter wasnt bad either. I dont have a problem saying that, and I think all movies were that much better than both expendables movies.

So those two are about even

These shouldnt be compared at all. Harry Potter is good quick read, but overall LOTR is just one of the best.

Rocky 4 was fake bro. The robot in their dining hall? Meh.

LOL.

My stream kept ****ing up so didn't watch HP in full. Gonna borrow my girls's DVD and start from the beginning.

Honestly I couldn't tell you. I fell sleep within the first five minutes of each movie. But from those five minutes that I manage to stay awake I say LOTR. I honestly give props to whom ever could sit and watch an entire LOTR movie, sht's too long and boring
