Lotr vs Hard-boiled egg, both take too long and are a bit of a let-down when they're finally done! And in JK Rowling's defence, she did not nick Harry Potter's name froom the other book, it was the name of a kid she knew when she was growing up, and she always liked the name. True story!

it's pretty possible to compare any two things you want...probably if you thought about it long enough, you could compare LotR to a hardboiled egg...two things that are very unique often make the best measure for each other.

If you didn't like Harry Potter, you didn't watch the background... that was enough to entertain me, though the story was slow, the visual effects and cinematography were fantastic

And I think the story was talking about Movie ratings etc. In which they are both competing this year. Plus both (in the movies anyway) borrow from each other heavily. lucas having used similar ideas to Tolkien in his tale of good vs Evil, and Jackson using techniques and shooting angles that would never have ben possible without Lucas and ILM.

I must admit the visuals were great, but after a while I got bored. The exact moment - after the frog jumped out the window. I only woke up during the Quidditch game, cos it reminded me of school. But hopefully the next one will be better.

I liked it cos it didn't remind me of school at all. But of the sort of thing school would have been had I enjoyed it :D (Though Hogwarts did look just like my old school)

If the Star Wars trilogy is better than FotR, I guess I'll have to go and see it, cos FotR is the best film I've ever seen so far. (no, I'm exaggerating here, but the trilogy will definetely end up high in my top 5).
HP sucks bigtime, not only the film, but the books too. I started reading The Filosophers Stone, but I didn't even get to the fifth chapter. B-o-r-i-n-g! :)
