    Empire.

    Why? Because Empire was a 100% original creation, whereas LotR is based on a book. Yes, I know George Lucas "borrowed" some ideas rather liberally, but he still wrote the entire story and turned it into a masterpiece.

    Seriously though, the top 4 all deserve a round of applause....


    ETA

    if we do another round of this we need to have a classics matchup. Casblanca vs Citizen Kane, and Seven Samurai vs 12 Angry men. Even Dr. Strangelove vs It's A Wonderful Life!

    What do you think?

    I think we shouldn't do this again. At least not for awhile.
