If you are so fan of lotr you should know as well that the books are much much better than the films. But it seems for your post that you have never read it. So I think that the toxic kid is you and not the guy that just wrote his opinion about hobbit and lotr.

Only problem with LOTR is how dense the story is, if you literally miss a little you can miss something important. Harry potter is an easier read. But LOTR is much better imo
2019-02-22 12:53
Yeah for sure! When I read it, I get back to the maps of Middle Earth to check it out Frodo and Sam's location. And the other guys as well. Most epic book I've had!

2019-02-22 12:51
LOTR but GoT is GOAT
2019-02-22 12:53
Harry Potter, it was a lot harder to come up with, so many unique details while LotR is basically gnomes, elves and hobbits all over again.
2019-02-22 12:55
"Elves entered the twentieth-century high fantasy genre in the wake of works published by authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien; these re-popularised the idea of elves as human-sized and human-like beings. Elves remain a prominent feature of fantasy books and games nowadays." Show me another book with Hobbits. Yeah, they are "all over again" lmao, how dumb can you be.
2019-02-22 13:23
They were in certain nations folklore, legends, myths and different stories. It's not something that was creatured in the XX century unlike most of HP's content. They may have been put in books then but not when they were discovered, that's the point.
2019-02-22 13:24
But it's not "all over again" Tolkien's books are something that popularized them, not used all over again, that's the point.
2019-02-22 13:25
Yes, I phrased it wrong, I'm embarrassed by it now but what I meant is that it wasn't something original or so unique in comparison to HP.
2019-02-22 13:28
Is it really that original and unique? Are witches and sorcerers that original? How cliche is witches riding on brooms? The story is also a ganereic fight between good and bad.
2019-02-22 13:37
It is, a school for young magicians and wizards, 4 special courses and directions. I'm not good at those namings in English, I can't list everything but that ever crying tree, a flying car, motorcycle riding in the air, talking cats and chopped off heads. Magic sticks, spells and casts... this list will never end. Really much.
2019-02-22 13:39
Flying motorcycle? E.T. (yeah it was a bike but close enough). Flying cars, I couldn't even count examples of that, let's just say Back to the Future. Using wands? Cliche. Little gnome/goblin creatures as bankers? Cliche. Tree with humanlike traits? Cliche. A multiheaded dog guarding something? Yeah that's 1:1 cerberus who was guarding the entrance to the underworld. Talking cat in a world with witches? Super cliche. It's like an endless sack of cliches thrown into the same place.
2019-02-22 13:51
It's not even a quarter of what was present there and despite all that it's still a hundred levels above of the LotR content, who only picked up those folklore creatures and gave it a good storyline. I'd rather watch some TV show based on a historical drama, just as good but if I wanted fantasy, HP was the solution.
2019-02-22 13:51
Except it's not, LotR was a literature milestone defining the whole genre, HP is a sack of cliches not bringing anything new to the table using every cliche possible.
2019-02-22 13:55
Wrong here, if anything LotR was what you described, everything's put in there was already well known and described before. It's only a good storyline and good writing but HP was a really breathe of magic, something very different and so fitting to the genre. Vast majority of content was all original unlike LotR and it was a lot harder to come up and fit the scenario.
2019-02-22 13:56
Show me one original thing from HP and I'm 100% sure that I will be able to show you multiple examples where it was used in literature, cinematography, mythology, religion or somewhere else before.
2019-02-22 14:00
Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff. Houses of the Hogwarts. Did you see that before.
2019-02-22 14:02
So where was it before? Giving me a link to the books alike is not really it.
2019-02-22 14:08
I'm not sure About when those books were realease tho but regardless, there are MULTIPLE stories where school is a place of action and with different group of pupils rivalry, HP just adds magic to it.
2019-02-22 14:08
That's why it's so unique. The namings, the uniform, talking hat, so many unmatched details. Did you ever read about Gryffindor before?
2019-02-22 14:09
But it's not original at all, it takes pretty common idea and tweaks it a little to fit into the created world.
2019-02-22 14:10
The creativeness of the namings is what charms the reader into it. LotR is like Elvis, who just took the existing idea and made it famous but HP is like the Beatles who created new ways and THEN made it famous.
2019-02-22 14:11
Gondor, Helm's Jar, Rivendell, Rohan, Mordor, Shire are all unique places in LotR, what you are talking are creatures living in that world and it's exactly the same what HP did, wizards, witches, goblins, multiheaded dogs, goblins house elf, there is nothing original about them. The only difference is that LotR is what made those creatures popular in the literature where HP just took what is already estabilished.
2019-02-22 14:17
I'm talking about the creativity in names and clothe design, every little thing actually. Even those LotR places were somehow connected to the folklore, Mordor and Gondor, sound like places of the Vikings habitat or alike. HP created their stuff on their own. Sorcerer's Stones and the face on the backside of the head. A secret tunnel in the bathrooms and many, many more I can't recall or spell correctly.
2019-02-22 14:20
Possesion of another person is nothing unique, secret tunels is nothing original, house names are not really original either,Slytherin comes from word slythe, gryffindor from griffin, ravenclaw, really? raven claw? And the last that no one remember. What original is is taking something that is not already estabilished for years and putting it together, HP did exactly the spposite, it took already estabilished for years cliches and put them together. LotR was something unique and original when it was created and from "newer" literature The Witcher books are also very unique and original because it takes it's ideas from slavic mythology what is super unique for mainstream literature and even The Witcher's elves are very unique.
2019-02-22 14:30
Elves are not unique in general, most of nations folklores have them at some point of time and that could be said about any creature of LotR and you mistook my point once again. HP got creativity in the namings and designs, everything that requires fantasy really. Quidditch? Namings of the spellings? Seems like I took the easest for my previous example. In all objective comparison, LotR won't come close to creativity with HP, it could be more popular but that's nothing.
2019-02-22 14:31
If you would read Witcher you would know that even something like elves can be unique if done differently, in witcher they are not a mighty, magical, majestic creatures full of magic, they are morderous dicks that will mutilate you if you will come a little too close to their home. That's what I mean, HP is not even trying to do something differently, it just takes clichces and fits them into the world's setting.
2019-02-22 14:36
It's attitude, director's decision, not his creative mind. I can't really be serious about it because you repeat yourself without replying to my posts accordingly to the subject. There are borrowings in both franchises but HP hit it much more creatively and got more things invented on their own, or in that specific way and the style.
2019-02-22 16:31
And I'm telling you that HP didn't create anything on it's own, Rowling just took established cliches and put them together.
2019-02-22 17:42
You don't get me at all. We're having discussions with the phantoms. I'm not talking about certain figures or ideas, even though she had come up with lots of them but just creative decisions, namings, designs. Quidditch, the whole game, was it ever before as well. I don't even remember everything.
2019-02-22 17:46
You guys are nerds... btw LOTR ftw

Well, enjoy then.
2019-02-22 18:00
ty
2019-02-22 18:06
Yeah quidditch is the only original idea I can think of in HP, all the other thing are like, I need something that will guard an enterance, Cerberus, I need sometging witches and wizards will use for transportation, brooms, I need a big monster heroes will fight, big spider (I wonder where I've seen that before...). It's like whenever she needed to come up with something she was picking the most obvious answers.
2019-02-22 18:25
But you take the most well known ones as well. If we dig deeper, we may find much more wonderful cases. But I watched it last time when I was a teenager, I don't remember anything. But it's amazing how many she thought out on her own. You claimed there was only cliches, so this little game already disapproved it. Should we continue to get hurt even more?
2019-02-22 18:26
ok so cliches plus quiditch, it doesn't make it any better.
2019-02-22 18:28
Not correct again. You can't claim anything until we go through the entire franchise and break things down, one by one. Until then, it's unclear but can LotR carry on? It wasn't as long? Just 3 chapters + Hobbit or am I wrong?
2019-02-22 18:29
What do you mean? LotR have been the most popular fantasy franchise for over 60 years now and a book that defined the whole fantasy genre.
2019-02-22 18:32
I don't have doubts for that. I mean HP got more chapters out and how many do LotR have? 3 Chapters + Hobbit, or? Also I don't have to say that popularity doesn't define quality or should I?
2019-02-22 18:36
Have you ever heard about silmalirion?
2019-02-22 18:39
I don't think so, I might have not. Reply to another post, I won't see a thing.
2019-02-22 18:40
I disagree. Middle Earth has a lot of thought put into it, with a rich history and all. Harry Potter's universe, while interesting, doesn't really make any sense. It's just a collection of the creations of Rowling's imagination, but it isn't well thought out. It is clear that the universe and plot are created as Rowling progresses with the books, which I don't blame her for, as the first book was at first literally a bed time story that ended up getting a lot of popularity. Considering that, the books evolve actually quite well into something more mature, so credit for that. But in the end I think Middle Earth has so much more thought put into it.
2019-02-22 18:13
My point is that it's a much better fantasy world, is much harder to come up with and create. Whether it makes sense or not, it's a fantasy, fairy world in both cases.
2019-02-22 18:27
Whether it's a better fantasy world is debatable. I don't think creating a universe like Harry Potter's is necessary harder. It's different sure. I guess what's harder depends on the person.
2019-02-22 18:35
LotR is mostly built around folklores and history writings, HP could have the same foundation but it takes much more unique details, designs, namings. I'm almost certain it would be a lot harder.
2019-02-22 18:37
Tolkien created the whole new language for his middle-earth books, ha have been creating silmalirion since 1914 which is around 40 years before he published 1st LotR, silmalirion is a book of stories about middle-earth before what happens in LotR, He have been creating that world for around 50 years. There is also "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil" which also takes place in middle-earth. On the other hand we have Rowling who like I've said before was coming with the most obvious ideas on every corner.
2019-02-22 18:46
You just miscredited yourself by saying about the most obvious ideas on every part of HP. Even it's not so by every means. We're talking about the final production, not the way it was done or gotten to it. What should I add to my reasoning so that you would see.
2019-02-22 18:49
Give me a example, and as I've said before, school setting is nothing original, she just fitted it in the world of magic.
2019-02-22 18:50
But the namings of the things, she took from someone else as you say - even though we didn't walk through every thing contained in both worlds. I don't remember much, but here's a few: Talking hat that decides your school occupation, moving ladders, living people in the portraits, spells cast by magic stick and secret words, flying motorcycle, the mirror that shows what you wish about, quidditch game, the blanket that makes you invisible and many more I can't recall.
2019-02-22 18:55
Moving objects? Seriously? Ghosts? Wizards and witches using wands? Can you actually think about something more cliche? Flying vehicles? Magical mirrors? Cloak of invisibility? Again, seriously? Those are all cliche. I can give you the hat tho.
2019-02-22 19:02
You can't cover that up with the foundation being around for longer but the exact thing was never used before. It's unique, where did you ever see randomly moving ladders in a big amount? Portraits with people actually talking to you and living in them? Magic being produced in that way? With those thin sticks and spells? Flying motorcycle that's no match to the usual one but is only flying? Magical mirror that shows whatever you ask for, if you have good intentions? Can you show me where, I don't know.
2019-02-22 19:09
Just I've said those are all cliche and the most obvious ideas she could come up with, she needed something that will tell hero some things he couldn't normally learn, magic mirror GENIUS, stories about haunted paintings are as old as paintings themselves, it could be moving vibrators it doesn't matter what it is, moving objects in a magic world is pretty common. What do you mean by "Magic being produced in that way? With those thin sticks and spells?" Wands and spells is like the most obvious way of using magic in fantasy ever. A transportation for heroes? Brooms and flying vihacles, again GENIUS.
2019-02-22 19:16
Well, show me the origins of those exact 'cliches' then? You spew out a lot but you run out of steam when it's time to provide something. You don't answer me at all. You just take the foundation, not the same creation. So.
2019-02-22 19:16
magic mirror > en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_Mirror_(Snow.. "Wands were introduced into the occult via the 1200s latin grimoire The Oathbound Book of Honorius." > en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wand Flying cars is a humanity dream since airplane was invented. "In 1926, Henry Ford displayed an experimental single-seat aeroplane that he called the "sky flivver"." > en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_car Ghost stories and magically self moving object have also been with us for centuries. "Cloaks of invisibility are magical items found in folklore and fairy tales. Such cloaks are common in Welsh mythology; a "Mantle of Invisibility" is described in the tale Culhwch and Olwen (c. 1100) as one of King Arthur's most prized possessions.[1] The mantle is described again, and in more detail,[1] in the Breuddwyd Rhonabwy, and is later listed as one of the Thirteen Treasures of the Island of Britain. A similar mantle appears in the Second Branch of the Mabinogi, in which it is used by Caswallawn to assassinate the seven stewards left behind by Bran the Blessed and usurp the throne." > en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloak_of_invisibil..
2019-02-22 19:26
Magic Mirror is not the mirror that shows you what you ask it for (depending on your personality). What's this reference to the wand? Did I only say wand? That's the way of casting spells. Which takes a magic stick, wand, and the spell pronounciation. Not even close. Flying cars are not the flying motorcycles that are equivalent to the ground riding ones. Ghost stories and magically self moving objects ARE NOT portraits with people talking to you and actually living in them and randomly moving ladders in a big amount. Not even remotely close. I can give you one point for the cloak but you just gave me the wiki link, not where it was used before Rowling. Still I count this one. Do you see where you're wrong? You take the obvious foundation but not the creation which is very different. LotR case would suit you better, they just took what was before them.
2019-02-22 19:51
And you clearly don't see my point of her picking the most obvious idea for everything.
2019-02-22 19:54
Wrong once again. Or should I say, potentially wrong because you didn't list me all of the cliches present in HP, all the things that she borrowed in time but my point is proven, HP was a lot harder to come up with, it's much more creative and difficult to create.
2019-02-23 05:08
It's pointless, I'm not gonna point out the cliches again and again when for you these cliches are "unique and original" lol.
2019-02-23 12:35
I'm not talking about 'cliches', you still don't get it? You're talking about ideas and I'm talking about decisions. LotR just took what has been and made it popular while HP took the foundation and created a whole new creation, it was much harder from a creative point of view which is my entire point since the start. And you didn't give me anything on that.
2019-02-23 12:49
Yeah, sure, witches in pointy hats, so new, using wands to cast spells, so new, flying vehicles, so new, big spider, so new, magic mirror, so new, haunted paintings, so new, witches flying on brooms, so new, cerberus, so new and I could go on and on and on and on. But it's pointless bscause in your opinion it's all "unique and original"
2019-02-23 12:58
Not in my opinion, you mistake two definitions and fail to comprehend what I'm trying to say. Stop ignoring, what the fuck. You don't get what I'm saying AT ALL. "You're talking about ideas and I'm talking about decisions. LotR just took what has been and made it popular while HP took the foundation and created a whole new creation" I put it in quote for you, maybe this way.
2019-02-23 13:04
HP took what was popular and shoved it all together without innovating anything.
2019-02-23 13:06
What was popular at the time? Can you provide the link regarding cinema style and fashion of that era. And what does it change exactly? My point is still standing perfectly still.
2019-02-23 13:07
It's not that she took what was popular at the time, it's even worse she took things that are timelessly popular and have been popular for tens or hundreds of years.
2019-02-23 13:14
Just like LotR did, the same case but Tolkien didn't even try to hide it anyhow. He didn't come up with anything new except for location namings and storyline, I guess. HP is a lot different and much harder to recreate.
2019-02-23 13:16
Not true, Tolkien took things and made them popular in mainstream, HP is Just leeching on popularity of those things.
2019-02-23 13:18
HP took a whole different approach and changed everything. HP is a creation, LotR is a showcase. When will you see this.
2019-02-23 13:26
It change nothing, it took things and fitted them 1:1 into it's world setting and oh god if you really think that a piece of literature that defined the whole fantasy genre and put singlehandedly a whole genre into mainstream is Just a showcase then we really don't have anything to talk about.
2019-02-23 13:33
It changes everything. Don't forget that you argue with me and my point being? Do you even remember it? No matter what LotR achieved and what's being done, HP is a lot harder to recreate and it's much more creative. Accomplishments of LotR have no relevance AT ALL.
2019-02-23 13:38
Ok now I'm done "lotr have no revelance" oh god something that over over 60 years later is still copied over and over again have no revelance, you have made yourself look dumb af right now, bye.
2019-02-23 13:41
Are you handicapped? Why do you grab words out of context. "Accomplishments of LotR have no relevance", this is what I said. You look very silly now. You got nothing else to say obviously. And it's still irrelevant, what you said now.
2019-02-23 13:42
I must appreciate ur insane knowledge about movies. I completely agree with you. J.K. Rowling just grabbed all cliches avalaible and made a book about them. LOTR is something else. LOTR changed the whole Fantasy genre. Tolkien was working on his art more than 50 years.
2019-02-22 20:01
i've read the entire thing and i completely disagree with you. like the other guy said, tolkien pioneered the genre. the way all those mythical creatures are described in today's fantasy works are greatly influenced by his take on it. he might not have invented them but he made fantasy mainstream. harry potter's greatest innovation imo is that the whole magical world coexists side by side with the regular world. the diagon alley and the 3/4 was probably the coolest parts for me as a kid. the idea might not be novel either, but it was executed really well. when it comes to comparing the universes harry potter shouldn't be even mentioned in the same category with tolkien. tolkien tried to describe every little detail of his world, and probably would if he didn't die before finishing the silmarillion. there is the elvish language he created, poems he incorporated into the books, history etc. what do we really know about harry potter's world? jack shit. 90% of the scenario happens in one place. hardly anything about how magic works is explained. the main villain is a fucking joke. i mean how long does the wizard world exist in harry potter? only now some guy figured out that shuttering his soul will make him unkillable and no one has a clue this is possible? are you serious??? it's a sloppy piece of work. as for the creativity you mentioned, quidditch was certainly an innovative and cool concept which deserves praise but some of the other aspects were cringe worthy (and i don't usually use the word "cringe") when it came to names. all of the spells are words in latin, some of them changed a bit. avada kedabra...? rly? maybe she should have added hocus pocus or shazam, cuz why not. the names of the houses are extremely plain. griffindor aka griffin (which is also the symbol) aka courage. slytherin aka slither aka snake. imo a really poor job at representing the concept of the house as well because they are supposed to be ambitious and cunning which isn't exactly what snakes / serpents represent in most mythologies unless her sources were nazi propaganda. ravenclaw with a raven's claw as the symbol, fucking genius innovation. the clothes are as cliche as it gets. hell, mcgonagall looks like a rip off from the magician of oz. long robe, pointy hat. very original. personally i disliked the idea that the wizards are like amish fashion wise, stuck a few hundreds of years behind. i don't remember it being explained either. we are just supposed to assume wizzards are supposed to wear long robes with pointy hats and use magic wands to cast spells. can you get more cliche than that? i think up to the 3rd book harry potter is probably one of the best fantasy series for kids and should be compared to the hobbit. from the 4th book onward it started to explore mature themes such as romance, dealing with death, despair. the problem is the depiction of the world isn't mature or intricate enough. once you grow out of your teens, in retrospect it's kinda meh.
2019-02-22 20:09
I respect that you took time to share your insight on it but I will be honest to you, I'm so tired now and I have no desire to read it all. I will easily take the fact that you disagree with me but can you write it within two sentences? I'm afraid you could mistake my point, I didn't measure length of the dicks of two, not at all.
2019-02-23 05:11

2019-02-22 13:30
I unironically have no clue how someone can prefer Harry Potter, or even think that it's equal. I've seen all the movies and read all the books (the books were as a kid though so I don't remember too much) and they're alright, but I wouldn't be sad if someone told me I could never watch them again. Comparatively, LoTR is arguably the best film series of all time, and unquestionably one of the best works of fiction of all time.

2019-02-22 13:36
I prefer HP because it was what got me into fantasy settings. But in terms of quality LotR puts the HP universe in a corner. Especially with JKRowling lately.

I loved harry potter till i was like 16-18. Once you grow into adulthood you slowly realize that harry potter though one of the best works of fantasy is for kids. Tried i have many a times to re-read harry potter but i couldn't . But as for Lord of the rings i can again and again without getting bored. I could have done the same with got but the tv series ruined it.

If you want to spend a day watching one of them I would say go for Harry Potter. If you wanna spend a bit more time going into the movie lOTR all the way.
2019-02-22 14:06
LOTR definitely. Doesnt have an author still struggling to be relevant, and LOTR will be studied and adored for years to come whereas harry potter probably going to die off. LOTR is simply better
2019-02-22 14:06
People who would choose Harry Potter over Lord of the rings must be 100% brain dead. Lord of the rings is a piece of art, like come on who here didn't get goosebumps at least once per movie. Harry potter is wank.

2019-02-22 17:45
worldbuilding and lore on asoiaf is way better than lotr and hp. storywise its way more realistic when you compare it to medieval history. especially the characters and their interactions. tolkien is obsessed with lotsa small things but he isnt that good with portraying real human emotions. hp is cheesy but fun to read.

Peter Jackson franchise without any doubt Harry Potter is really good but i think LoTR is bigger and has better characters

LOTR movie is insanely good. I don't read books but I wish I had the focus to read the LOTR books. HP is good but comparing it to LOTR then LOTR wins it in my eyes.

shrek universe for sure
2019-02-22 18:17
LOTR ofc

read both the lotr and hp when i was a kid in the 90s. enjoyed the hp books more than the lotr books. also i finished lotr in a couple of months whereas i waited for hp books to come out. so more suspense. enjoyed the lotr movies way more than the hp movies. lotr is superior in every single way but if you want to live a cheesy story as an adolescent, harry potter is way better and more familiar for a kid as you can relate a lot more with it compared to lotr.

Harry Potter better written. LoTR lore is rich af, but too difficult language for me, I suck at English
2019-02-22 18:55
Harry Potter ofc LOTR is boring and gay
2019-02-22 18:59
+1 harry potter is so much more than lotr. half of lord of the rings is boring fighting scenes
2019-02-22 19:20
How is Harry Potter better? J.K just grabbed all cliche avalaible and made a book about them. Tell me at least 2 original things about HP.

Completely different genres. Just as silly as comparing GoT and LOTR, simply because they share a similar setting.
2019-02-23 13:11
There is no way to compare those genres together but I've read both book series and tbh Harry Potter is waaaaay better written.
2019-02-23 13:18
lotr not even a question
2019-02-23 13:20
LOTR all the way :)
2019-02-23 13:27
Harry potter, easily!
