Whats so special about LOTR anyway?

It all depends on your point of view. What makes it special to me does not mean it will be the same for others.

For me it is a wonderful fantasy world to escape to (like Star Wars)

I also think it is a great story and told very well.

That's pretty much like someone who knows nothing about Star Wars coming up to you asking what's so special about Star Wars.  Instead of sounding so offish towards anything Lord of the Rings go and watch it.  Once you have judge it for yourself.

Re: Lord of the Rings

without Lord of the Rings, most of today's fantasy creatures would be very different.

Re: Lord of the Rings

There would be no such things as orcs for example.  Elves were not popularized until Tolkien. 

And according to wikipedia it states that Lucas drew some influence from Tolkien.
