as a huge fan of both stories, i feel i must contribute somethin…as anybody who has read the books or seen the platinum extended editions of LOTR knows, gandalf got his shit broken in return of the king by the witch king. dumbledore chose to die at the end, and was too good for horcruxes. as any deathly hallows fan would say, he “went with death as an old freid, and departed this world, as equals.” i’m gonna have to go with a tie on this one.
Vanjess, that was due to a weird censoring thing going on.
Also I cannot let this inaccuracy pass. In the books, Gandalf was never beaten by the witch king. They faced off at the gate to Minas Tirith, and, after halting and refusing to enter (or being unable to), the witch king retreated due to the arrival of Rohan’s army. It is only in the stupid extended edition movies that Gandalf is made into a pu$$y. Stupid movie writers.
And in the books, Aragorn would never have dishonorably chopped off the Mouth of Sauron’s head. Instead he sat without moving and made him panic.
The movies wrecked the character of Faramir. The extended movies also wrecked Gandalf and Aragorn.
No wonder kids are so pussified now a days, they grew up obsessing over nerdy wimpy shit like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Pokemon. I was born in 1981, we grew up watching cool flicks like Back to the Future and Schwarzenegger movies. I feel sorry for this new generation. They are weak.
I think dryheats point was the fact crazydude’s generation didn’t grow up on BTTF any more than any other generation considering the marvel of technology that you just pointed out.
Also, to crazydude it’s pretty much the same generation…not to mention the fact that saying a fantasy book about magic will ‘pussify’ its readers anymore than a movie that throws basic laws of physics out of the window and disregards quantum mechanic principles. They are both about magic…one just hides it under the guise of science and classic cars.
Back to the Future is possible one of the worst series of movies. That being said, gandalf is pretty much a lesser god and would rape the shit out of dumbledore in a wizard duel. Also, i have a problem with those on here basing their entire argument off of the LOTR movies, as the movies downplayed gandalf’s powers
