Yeah, Lord of the rings totally copied Harry Potter.

J.K Rowling herself admitted to taking dementors from J.R.R Tolkein's Nazgul, but I think she took much more than that!
(Also, a thumb for you)
User avatar #70 to #48 - siriuswolf (12/19/2012) [-]
Actually, that's not true.
"J. K. Rowling has revealed that the inspiration for Dementors came from her bout with severe depression before her phenomenal success. She described the feeling as an "absence of being able to envisage that you will ever be cheerful again. The absence of hope. That very deadened feeling, which is so very different from feeling sad." - Harry Potter Wiki
But they're often compared to the Nazgûl, due to their appearance.

Dumbledore was the name of a type of insect in a hobbit poem. Idk if she took that from Tolkien or if that was coincidence, but still pretty neat.

You're right, when he gets Hermoine.

samwise is the greatest badass in the entire middle earth

who the **** else can and would fight through an entire tower filled with goblins and orks to save his friend? right after he saved said friend from a GIANT SPIDER!!!

it's not like he needed to. he had the ring so he could probably have finished the quest himself (plus i truly think that sam wouldn't have gotten tempted in the end like frodo was)
User avatar #100 to #71 - ohlookathing (12/19/2012) [-]
Agreed. I think Sam was more resilient to the ring's power than Frodo, and would have been a better ring bearer.

What do you think of an ERB between Frodo and Sam VS. Harry and Ron?

Sam > Frodo

Ron < Harry
User avatar #106 to #105 - ohlookathing (12/19/2012) [-]
Yes. I would totally be down for that.

Fun Fact: Tolkien considered Sam the main protagonist of LotR. Not Frodo.

well no, i mean even if you just watch the movie Sam finishes it and ends with his book, while Frodo ditches him on a magic ship to fairyland.

holy ****




you are right
#153 - datgermanguy (12/20/2012) [-]
Well, the slight difference is that the story of Harry Potter gets a little sidetracked by the huge amount of hormones bursting into Harrys brain, and the story of Lord of the Rings gets a little sidetracked by describing the landscape for several pages

dude, halfway through the Fellowship, and they're still in the goddamn forest. TOLKIEN, I DON'T CARE WHAT THE ******* TREES LOOK LIKE. GET ON WITH IT.

Come to think of it, both Frodo and Harry are whiny, annoying bitches, except that Frodo is like that because of the Ring, and Harry is like that because he's Harry.

#312 to #300 - scarytown (12/20/2012) [-]
Ron was a pretty whiny bitch too. I mean, **** , they all were. They were going through puberty. Who isn't a whiny bitch when they're going through puberty. Meanwhile, in LOTR, everyone's a tiny adult. Frodo was just spoiled by Bilbo, and Sam was hesitant becuase he was a Hobbit, and that's kind of the definition of Hobbits. They don't like excitement or adventure.
#318 to #312 - ktomb (12/20/2012) [-]
They are all a bit whiny, because they are all young. They are not as worldy as the older characters, and are taking on much bigger things than they ever have before. They are all growing and learning, and the fact that they mature and find courage throughout their journies is why we connect to them most, b/c they are most like we are. Perhaps it is b/c they remind us of ourselves that we always jump to calling them whiny cowards. Hell, even Gandalf and Dumbledore were once confused, scared adolescents. One is not born badass. Badassery is thrust upon them. It is up to them to accept it or remain the follower of others that they have always been.
#348 to #318 - breakfastlunch (12/20/2012) [-]
Very well put, except for one thing. Gandalf was never an adolescent. He arrived in Middle Earth in just about the same form as he appears when we see him.

In other words, he isn't human, and therefore isn't dictated by our biological development.

valid point. i've just been lawyered, lol

thanks. "Consider the followings" usually are, lol
User avatar #355 to #300 - RequieminMortis (12/20/2012) [-]
Eh, can't really blame either of them for it. Both were young, both had the fate of the world thrust on their shoulders and were given no choice in the matter, and both constantly had some form of evil hovering over them at all time (the Ring's influence for Frodo, and the mental connection with Voldemort for Harry).
User avatar #374 to #355 - moosespoon **User deleted account** (12/20/2012) [-]
Frodo was 33. Hardly young.
User avatar #315 to #300 - alseides (12/20/2012) [-]
I agree completely, Sam had to save Frodo's ass every 30 minutes on the way to that volcano. When they DID finally get there, Frodo couldn't even do his job.
#316 to #315 - breakfastlunch (12/20/2012) [-]
<---Ironically, this guy here was responsible for destroying the ring, since he jumped on Frodo and fell into the Crack of Doom after biting his finger off. Without him, Frodo would have walked out of there like Isildur did.
User avatar #220 - schmuxy (12/20/2012) [-]
Sam a loser?
Sam defeated Shelob.
Sam not only rallied Frodo, but Faramir also.
He even carried Frodo up a ************* volcano.

some loser.

Sam was no loser BFF, he was the reason why they were victorious in destroying the ring.

So was Ron also, kinda, saved Harry's life several times, but mostly when they're at the lake in the last movies. (Don't remember which one).

After christmas I'm gonna buy all 10 books (Both HP and LOTR) and read them. I enjoy the movies alot, so I bet the books will boost my love for them both alot.
User avatar #349 to #296 - wilvine **User deleted account** (12/20/2012) [-]
12, you should also read The Hobbit and the simallirion (I think that's how it's spelled.) by Tolkien also.

I've read the Hobbit. I've not actually heard of The Simallirion, I'll check it out.

Wasn't Gollum the reason for the Ring's destruction?

with him kind of dragging it into the lava and all

I totally agree, Samwise Gamgee is the most badass person in the Middlearth. Well maybe except Gandalf. Gandalf is pretty cool too.

I love Sam, but he cries sooooooooo much in the books.
#306 - SuperHyperCrazy (12/20/2012) [-]
Frodo is such a god damn pussy in the movies. He couldn't do a thing without being either ****** over or ****** up.

don't kill me, I love LotR

I swear to god, he wouldn't stop crying all the time..

Samwise was a better hero and would have made a better ring-bearer IMO
#251 - garymuthafuknoak (12/20/2012) [-]
***** , Sam was the ******* hero. He fought the ******* spider and didn't cry like a little bitch. He didn't trust Smeagol even when Frodo abandoned him. He carried Frodo into Mt. Doom (crie evertim) Frodo would have died like 5 times if it wasn't for him.

One was written by an already well established author, who was writing for a much older audience.

The other was written by an (at the time) unknown author who wanted to bring joy to children's lives.

They're both good books, and you're entitled to a preference, but they really aren't in the same category. It's unfair to compare one to the other.

Now if you were comparing Harry Potter to the Hobbit on the other hand, that'd be a much more apt comparison.
