I'm positive that there is already a thread pertaining to LOTR, so what are you hoping to achieve? Are you trying to provoke people? That's your opinion, who cares? Anyway, this is going to closed as soon as a mod sees it, so meh.

I agree with Ben. Also, give us some pro's and con's into why LOTR is crap.

Back your statement up with reasons, or people will just think you are a board troll.
I hear the delicate sounds of approaching hobnail boots of the moderator kind.

I can back it up:
It's sci-fi. That's a good enough reason for me. And yes I have seen it, and yes I have seen various sci-fi programs against my will and none have ever made any sense to me, unless you count Futurama which is more of a comedy drama set in the future - I guess because if it was truly sci-fi then I wouldn't understand what the hell was going on, ever.

Harpoon my ass.

Sci-fi nothing.  Science fiction involves scientific advancements of some sort, whether it involves space ships or ray guns.  Lord of the Rings is fantasy, and it was THE series that made fantasy a driving force in literature, well, modern literature anyway.  Also, your statements do not back up the "LotR is crap" statement, you're just saying you don't like it.  Your tastes in literature or movies does not invalidate something's position as a classic.  I read Great Expectations and hated every word of it, but it is still a classic of English literature.  I saw American Beauty, I did not appreciate it at all, yet it still went on to win several Oscars, as I recall.  You're allowed to not enjoy something, but trying to invalidate an established classic using only your opinion just doesn't work at all.

Consider your ass harpooned.

OK you win. I would just like to say that everything I said was referring to the film as I haven't read the books, and I am not a fan of films, especially long films, at the best of times anyway.

The only fantasy I ever read was Stephen King's The Dark Tower cycle.  Not because I like fantasy, but because I used to read a lot of S. K.  Too bad he 'll give up writing soon.  He 's going blind.

Yeah, I'm also starting to wonder.  I always abuse these doomed threads to make just one spam post.  For the fun of it.
