Top 10 Reasons Why Lord of the Rings is Better Than Star WarsStar Wars: The Last Jedi comes out in three days but I'm not really looking forward to seeing it. I just don't see the appeal in Star Wars to be honest. I'm more of a Lord of the Rings guy. And I personally think in Lord of the Rings is even better than Star Wars. And I have a list of reasons why that is.
Please keep in mind that this is list subjective so please don't go crazy over a different opinion. It's fine if you like Star Wars. To each their own.
The Top Ten
I agree with most of this list. It's when you get older that Star Wars becomes less good while Lord of the Rings becomes more good.
Lord of the rings was the start of fantasy. It popularized fantasy and fiction stories
And that's fact. Lord of the Rings was one of the direct inspirations for Star Wars. And if it had not exist, Star Wars probably wouldn't have existed either.
It would've been nice if you'd elaborated on this. - Tia-Harribel
The prequels, Clone Wars movie, and The Last Jedi. Just to sum it all up.
It really does. Something that I'm sure isn't really gonna influence any writer for the best.
This is like comparing The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire to Green Eggs and Ham.
Complicated doesn't always mean better but it worked out for Lord of the Rings. The story to Star Wars is just too simple to me.
One of the most influential stories that ever was and ever will be.
I know movies have a much bigger impact on society but I personally think books are better because they're much better for you. With books you can read and focus better and they might actually be able to help you with your writing. Plus you can imagine the scenery anyway you want to.
I agree, great list!
It really is. With sci-fi it's easy to write because all it takes is some time to understand science a little more. With fantasy you have to really come up with your own history, countries, cultures, races and everything else.
Gollum inspired Yoda.
Gandalf inspired Obi-Wan.
The Witch King inspired Darth Vader.
Sauron inspired Palpatine.
To anyone who wants proof of this, here's a link to where I got this from.
I could relate to the characters in Lotr more because they have more depth and memorable lines. Some characters in Star Wars are either bland or one-dimensional to me (but I personally think the British people do the best acting).
Thank goodness it doesn't.
Not really much of a reason but whatever.
Your damn right star wars the original trilogy is great but not the best, I'm a fan of monsters so I'm glad lord of the rings have monsters while star wars doesn't
Gollum even to this day looks way more better than Jar Jar or anything else in the Star Wars prequels.
Please don't have SJWs ruin the whole franchise by making all the characters black!
