Twilight vs. Harry Potter

<p>Twilight movies suck so hard. They bore me when I go watch them. I also find them to be extremely cheesy.</p>

<p>Harry Potter= Good books AND good movies.</p>

<p>These are both my favorite book series ever. Both win all the way!</p>

<p>I think it's just so long as girls are going to see it, they keep making the movie. I think it just takes less time to make a twilight than harry potter, less special effects and not as complicated sets (doesn't a lot of it take place outside? vs the fancy hogwarts?), less actors needed, things like that.</p>

<p>Honestly both are the same thing to me. But I've never read the books, or seen the entire series of either. I only saw half of the first twilight (me and my friend were kinda crazy at the moment, coming from theater and just shouting "sexual tension" at every other moment and then got kicked out, it was hilarious to us) and parts of other harry potter movies and the last one that came out (I have a friend who's a huge fan so she took us out to see it on the night it came out, but me and another friend were just making jokes and being dorks).</p>

<p>Kinda seem the same though in film quality, they both look pretty enough.</p>

<p>I've never read either!</p>

<p>And I've fallen asleep during every HP movie forced upon me.</p>

<p>Harry Potter wins in books AND movies.</p>

<p>Harry Potter owns Twilight on so many levels so HP > Twilight.</p>

<p>Millancad! What blasphemy!</p>

<p>I need to read the HP books. I read the Twilight saga. I think it depends on what kind of writing one is fond of. I am fond of the movies on both ends. I have not read the HP books so I cannot contribute my opinion there.</p>

<p>Harry Potter hands down. Neither the books or movies have any comparison. I loved the Harry Potter books and Im still sad there are no more. :(</p>

<p>I was extremely devastated when I finished each series. Like I was seriously depressed.</p>

<p>I read both books, and to be serious Harry Potter was the best. The writing was great and made you want more. Twilight was predictable, and very sappy.</p>

<p>i haven't read either one.

<p>Harry potter is undoubtedly and unequivocally the better series. Twilight is a bunch of crap.</p>

<p>Harry Potter, because it's not aimed at girls.</p>

<p>Thread is win. Yes, Harry Potter=Twilight. I'm sorry, it's true.</p>

<p>EDIT: Yes! My apotheosis of Millan's literary tastes is upheld! btw, I'm taking a class on "Russian Literature in Translation: Pushkin to Dostoyevsky (sp?)" next year :b</p>

<p>Nonetheless, I can assimilate with the Harry Potter sadness people - I am quite sad that Quentin Compson is only in two books, and that I might have to reread The Sound and the Fury as a result. I was also sad that The Decameron had only 10 days' worth of tales. That said, Harry Potter's plot was awful - the movies, at least, were filled with deus ex machina and insipid themes of good versus evil with no logic behind it, and based on the fact that the books were written for primary school children, is probably not well written either.</p>

<p>Twilight is undoubtedly the better series because the people who read it are aware of the quality of what they're reading; in the meantime, Harry Potter fans think they are reading profound literature when in all actuality they are reading children's books.</p>

<p>^ thank you! :D I'm so sad that the college I'm going to is filled with Harry Potter fanatics who somehow still got in :/</p>

<p>^^ agree</p>

<p>never read either also, only read Discworld, which is awesome but to take it all so seriously...</p>

<p>Twilight books, while they're entertaining and I love them, are not well written. Harry Potter is so much better in storyline and in writing.</p>

<p>How can some of you people jusge Harry Potter if you haven't read every book in the series? And of course some college students may like Harry Potter they grew up when the books were new and popular. Twilight became popular because most of the teen girl readers were horny.</p>
