    Harry potter! I was a twilight hater for a long time but after reading the books and seeing movies I have to say I enjoy then for what they are, at most,  an interesting love story. HP has so much more depth, heart and most of all great writing.

    Potter Forever!! Marauder for Life!! I’m getting a Slytheffindor ring when I get engaged – a green centre stone on a yellow gold band Laughing

    Twilight is a load of a crap. It read like a fan fiction written by a 15 year old, the heroine is weak and the so-called love story is unstable and not something to be aspired to. And don’t get me started about what that Myers cow did with vampire lore. If I want to read a story about vampires, I’ll stick with Anne Rice and my main man, Lestat de Lioncourt.

    I’ve read and watched both series, and I can’t get into either of them. I don’t really mind Alice/Jasper of Twilight (and tthose 2 actors themselves are decent in other projects) but otherwise, I don’t like any of them.

    My faith in humanity is slightly bolstered by the results of the poll 🙂

    It’s like comparing Twinkies to Cheesecake

    @kala_way: Mine too 🙂

    I’m definitely that crazy Harry Potter fan that’s at all the midnight stuff. Books, movies, Pottermore… yep. I started reading the books when the first one came out, and I was in second grade at the time. So I literally grew up with them. I aged with the trio in the books and then even more so with the actors in the films- I’m about the same age as Emma Watson. I’ve read the entire series twice a year since I started reading them and they still captivate me as much as ever. I’m also in love with the name Ginevra and will (hopefully, if I can convince FI) name my daughter that in the far future. Yep, I’m insane, but I’m okay with it 🙂

    ETA: In writing this obsessive post I completely forgot that we were also commenting on Twilight, lol. That’s what it is to me- average and forgettable. I guess I dont HATE it or anything, but I think the writing is bad, the acting is bad, and the messages the story sends are bad.

    Ok, I’m not trying to be a hater, but I can’t even compare Harry Pottet to Twilight. 

    To me, Twilight is like that guy you meet in a bar. You’re kind of drunk, he seems interesting enough and before you know it, you’re at his place. You never really end up in a relationship with this dude. In fact, you get excited every time you plan to hang out…but then as soon as you’re sitting across from him, you think “…why did I like you?” 

    Harry Potter is your soulmate. The person you fell in love with and never regretted it. 

     

    I read (and enjoyed) the Twilight books. Then I looked back and wondered why. I see every movie and I am admittedly excited before each one. Yet I spend most of the movie disliking it and unable to point my finger on why. Something about the books/movies is attractive to me, but I never seem to remember what in hindsight.

    ^ I LOVE THIS BWAHAHAHAH!

    Aside from the fact that they’re fiction, Harry Potter and Twilight aren’t even comparable. (Well, that and the fact that movie Cedric is Edward.)

    Harry Potter is symbolic, written brilliantly, examines morals, values, and genuine relatable emotions, and follows complex characters with depth.

    Twilight is published Mary Sue fan-fiction depicting a grown woman’s childish and unhealthy fantasies regarding sparkling (wtf?) vampires and verging on the abusive side of Thesauras usage.

    I tried to read Twilight when it first became popular and everyone was talking about it. Someone told me it was “just an easy read,” so I attempted to approach the first book with that perspective and it literally made my head hurt to read it.

    @LuckyJuls: I LOVE ME SOME HUNGER GAMES.

     

    I’m just such a fan of HP because I literally GREW UP with them. The books are so engrossing, and I’ve become so involved with the characters lives and stories. With Twilight, I just never felt the connection to the main characters. I couldn’t see myself in Bella’s world like I could see myself at Hogwarts. Plus, I just don’t think that theres enough story in Twilight to warrent 4 books (and 5 movies…come on!).

    @MsMonkey: That is the most perfect way to describe both of those books. I totally used it for my fb status. : ))
