Why is LOTR so much superior to Star Wars and will anyone ever beat the GOAT movie trilogy of all times???
Only even based fuckin Vigo couldve carried this movie alone, the guy is more talented than all of the SW cast put together and easilly btfoes shit characters like Luke and Han Solo
Also, Sauron is actually a good villain unlike the meme shit that darth vader is
LotR is a lot less plot hole filled than Star Wars. "Why didn't the eagles fly the ring to Mordor?" is the big one and has an airtight response. Star Wars has a shitload of inconsistencies.
>sophisticated acting, well-placed humor, well-written dialogue as most of it had a source (tolkein) that it borrowed from that was the culmination of fantasy lit.
>great use of orchestra for the soudntrack, tons of memorable and atmospheric songs.
>great character study for frodo. the scene in the mines of moria in FOTR where frodo says that he wishes the ring had not come to him, the scene where boromir redeems himself.
>plenty of memorable scenes and colorful backgrounds. a true sense of danger, you never know if the characters will live, and gandalf dying was completely out-of-the blue to anyone who hadn't read the books.
star wars, all of them, is fiction for manchildren. LOTR is sophisticated and nuanced and brilliant.
Its more consistent than star wars but less enjoyable and is largely artless by the numbers affair
not bad but pretty dull. It lacks the vision of Star Wars and has zero memorable scenes or dialog.
