I already voted for Return of the King, which I consider the strongest in the trilogy. Fellowship was also a landmark film, but against the first Star Wars, ain't gonna fly.

Star wars Fellowship was the worst of the three imo, still epic but not as epic as STAR WARS :thumbsup:

Damn it! This has been a brutal Round 2 for me. All of my favourites are facing each other!!! :( First, American Beauty vs. One Flew Over the Cuckoo`s Nest; then Shawshank Redemption vs. Pulp Fiction; and now Star Wars vs. The Fellowship of the Ring. All I need now is for one of The Dark Knight, T2 or Empire Strikes Back to face each other to complete the square of DEATH!!.....don`t get any ideas Luhks.............:rofl:
