If you mean the movies, then LOTR is not hard to understand. But I went to see the 1st LOTR movie with my dad and he hated it. He said the whole thing was just 3 hours of walking. when they finally get to a good part it ends. So i can see why people would say it's boring.
If we are including the books I can definitely see both being true. There is some weird stuff in the books. Like the world being brought into existence through singing or the weirdness that is Tom Bombadil. And Tolkien spent alot of time on stuff I found boring such as the constant poems and songs. The description of the forest of Lorien is actually much longer than the description of the battle of Helms Deep. So there is definitely alot of boring stuff in LOTR.
you consider lord of the rings hard to understand?
You consider Lord Of The rings boring?
star wars is easier to understand and isnt boring
star wars is more future fantasy then scifi. light sabers are science bonkers, as is the force which is more magic then anything we saw in LOTR. there is very little science in star wars.
I enjoy both, but as my name would suggest, I am a fan of knowing the backstory. LOTR has a large amount of back story explaining how things got the way they are. All of it was written by one man with a plan in mind. Star Wars used to have a large amount of additional info considered cannon but all of that has been thrown out by Disney so they can do what they want with it.
To me, having no established story other than the movies makes Star Wars less accessible that LOTR
Also, this thread is in the "movies" topic on the forum, so XD
I think that this is a valid question for this forum. This forum is simply for debate, not only spewing facts. For example, any moral argument we have on this forum is simply "our own taste," but I assume you would have no issue with those debates?
Also, I prefer Lord Of The Rings because I prefer fantasy over sci-fi. Mostly because it's more interesting to me to see how it references history. Also because I love norse mythology, which is grossly what Lord Of The Rings is based on/references.
You cannot make us argue on this discussion for the answer relies on our own taste. We cannot completely answer facts about it, we may inly give our opinions (on why) "we seem to like THIS ONE".
