Lord of the Rings as Star Wars trilogy

a: Lord of the Rings ~
b: the original Star Wars trilogy

What: "But, after all, Lord of the Rings is, like the original Star Wars trilogy, a quest movie and by definition a quest movie must be composed of polar opposites: white versus black, good versus evil, even small versus tall."

a: Lord of the Rings ~
b: Caravaggio

What:

"The simplicity of light and shadow in Tolkien's text is far clearer than the Light and Dark of Lucas' saga. In this way, The Lord of the Rings is like Caravaggio high contrast, drama, and tenebrous lighting as symbols for morality's definition and simplicity. Star Wars is more akin to Rothko or Pollock color, chaos, and complexity. We can even see this in the color palettes chosen for the prequel films."

a: The Lord Of The Rings ~
b: the gateway drug of high fantasy

What:

Fantasy is not a genre you would ever expect to describe as having "grown up", but let's at least say it's moved on since Tolkien's day. If The Lord Of The Rings is like the gateway drug of high fantasy, then today's fans crave something harder.
