    the only way to enjoy the lord of the rings is to find a girl and make out for a bit. then watch a bit. then make out some more. repeat this process until you have seen the entire movie.
    It took me 3 replays of that goddamn thing. Not that it was unenjoyable.

    the matrix was dope as a single film. reloaded was WAY over rated. it had a few good scenes but over all couldn't hold it next to the original.

    LOTR has more going for it in the sense of being more well rounded in the telling of the story. but the matrix is definitly an original concept and creative as hell.


    they are both solid myths, and are completely different too but i gotta give it up for the rings.

    Matrix was great, but LOTR was the best action trilogy in the history of film. No lie.

    im kinda biased i guess, i was never really into that whole dungeons and dragons type shit that the lotr is about, but on the other hand im real fond of science and computers, matrix just did it for me personally i guess, i do believe thought that matrix reloaded was better than the first due to the fact it skipped over the whole explaining of what the matrix was and let you actually "explore" it through out the movie, i did feel kind of let down though at the end of the trilogy...i thought it could have ended better than it did

    The Matrix was pretty shitty. I believe the numbers will agree with me; the third installation of the Matrix did less than 50% of the business in the United States when compared to the previous movie. Also, if I'm correct, the Matrix reloaded and whatever the other one was called didn't even make a blip on the radar at the Golden Globes.

    the second Matrix film was eh, the last one was just retarded.

    I vote....Lord of the Rings with Return of the King being the absolute illness.

    I am a much bigger fan of the Matrix trilogy, but without a doubt LOTR was better executed.
