    Hell yeah... LOTR put me to sleep. The Two Towers was alright but that last one was corny imo. Overrated movies.

    Whaaa ?

    I agree they were a bit long but the substance of the story, the characters etc were more enjoyable for me.

    I liked Star Wars characters too but to be honest I HATED the hell out of those stupid Ewoks...talk about corny. Oh and I hated Ep. 1 with little orphan Annie, but the pod race was cool, and of course Maul was a bad ***.

    I'm more into the older Star Wars Episodes 3-6... the new ones was kind of lukewarm but I can still watch em over those dreadful LOTR movies. I know I might be in the minority because I have family members and friends who love those movies. Great CGI and epic moments at times but not enough for me to crown em over something I grew up on.

    They screwed the whole character over IMO. No backstory, no real dialogue, he just appears out of nowhere. There was no chance he could ever become iconic because they never gave the character a shot. I'm one of those people though that believe in less is more when it comes to horror movies and such, but this character could have been much better had they given him a chance.

    I wish they had made Anakin fight Maul in Episode 3 instead of creating the Count Dooku character. Love Christopher Lee, but that was a lame *** Sith.

    Maul's entire story (the one outside EP 1 which is the worst SW movie ever) is actually quite interesting. Let's just say that he had more to offer to the plot after Naboo. People would love the other characters more if you got to see their entire story like you do with Vadar.
