permalink As you may know two "highly anticipated" movies are coming out:
Twilight (from the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer)
and Harry Potter (as I bet everybody knows from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling)

So I was wondering.... for all you fans out there, what movie do you think will be better: Twilight or Harry Potter. Give a point to the movie that you pick. Also give a reason why and don't say because you haven't read one of them...

Here are the trailers for the movies:

Twilight

Harry Potter
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBGbKCm_pQQ

Personally I'm not too happy about the Twilight movie... I don't agree with the characters they use for pratically the whole cast (Bella is okay though...) and I don't like how they mix the world of Stephenie Meyer's world of vampires with the typical society's view of vampires.

So my vote goes to Harry Potter

Harry Potter - 1
Twilight - 0[edit]Last edit by Selene Tenten on Wednesday 15 Oct, 2008 at 20:42 -98.5%[/edit][edit]Last edit by Selene Tenten on Wednesday 15 Oct, 2008 at 01:47 +10.3%[/edit]

permalink It's soo sad to watch them mess up the movie...

The books are always better than the movies!! The best that anyone has done on a movie is Harry Potter.... Have you seen Eragon!!! They completely messed it up!!! ...and the Series of Unfortunate Events too.....
soo sad... now I'm mad.. :RBveryAngry:

permalink lol.... The one thing that they tried to do in Eragon and Series of Unfortunate Events was that they tried to put multiple books into one movie :RBcrying: .... that's never a good idea.... what sucked the most was that they had the wrong order in Unfortunate Events!!!! :RBveryAngry: *sigh*

permalink I personally think harry potter. the characters in twilight movie dont look likd how i expecte them to. Edward is not drop dead georgus. He is supposed to be the most or one of the most beautiful men i have ever seen in my entire life. in the movie he is not. THe same goes for jasper emmet and carisle. jasper should be sexy in a creppy haunting kind of way. Emmet should be huge and tall. i pictured the dude who plays clarck kent on smallville. (now that is a beautiful man lol). Rosalie isnt pretty enough to me she should have made me jealous and want to be her (exzaderation). Rosalie looks like the girl next door. Alice is th only one who looks okay to me. Bella just looks wrong. I dont think the movie will live up to the books.

I love the harry potter movies. They are like the only move that lives up to the movie im looking forward to the 6th move. I was mad when they replaced it with the twilight movie. Daniel looks like how i pictured harry althought sirus is not. and neither is remus. but thats ok cuz the movies are awsome. All in all HArry potter rocks lol.

I agree!!! Edward is suppose to me like the beautifulest thing you have ever seen.... not in the movie..... and in Harry Potter, the last book, J.K. Rowling pratically offed almost everybody!!! Fred died and George lost an ear.... I think that's the right way... or was it the other way around?

I agree with you... Twilight is one of the best books I have ever read but the movie isn't equal to the awesomness of the book

permalink I have never read the Twilight series, but I'm a huge Harry Potter fan. I also think that Dan is becoming a handsome man. I'm trying not to be too much of a pedophile. So for me, I can't wait for the next HP movie. I adore the books, and read so many fanfics, especially slash, that I pretty much read all that are worth reading.

However, maybe I will read the Twilight series as well. I'm always looking for new stuff to read. However, another good series is the Black Magician triology by Trudy Canavan. Surprisingly, it even discusses the gay issue.

I haven't read the Eragon series, but as far as I know, the last book just came out, so the movie can't have been the whole story.

permalink Last November 28, Asian time, I watched Twilight and it was totally awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved the movie, but I prefer the book though…

It’s a really awesome movie and I think you’ll be wanting to watch it over and over again…

It’s a story about Bella Swan (Kristen Bell) who just moved in Forks, Washington and she was welcomed by students there. She was okay with them, but there’s this weird group named the “Cullens” that caught her attention.

Later on, she met Edward Cullen. At first, she thought that Edward hated her so much. But later on, she suspected him ever since the day when he saved her from being crashed by a car. :O Ever since that day, she suspected something especially when Jacob told her about the Cullens’ story…

After another part happened wherein she was saved by Edward once more, she had no doubt about it; his speed, strength and cold-skinned, she knew he was a vampire. But still, she wasn’t afraid. Instead of fearing Edward, she fell in love with him.

Bella was exactly sure of three things; one, Edward was a vampire; two, on how his addiction to her blood will remain dormant and three; she was in love with him.

Later on, while playing a game of baseball, another group of vampires came and James, one of them, recognized that Bella had this certain thing and he wanted to drink her blood. Edward protected her, and she went along with her sister, Alice, to Phoenix, Arizona. At that place, Alice had a vision that Bella will be in danger.

After her feelings had been manipulated by James, she wasn’t able to escape him. Fortunately, Edward came to her aid and saved her. But when James bit Bella, she was being contaminated by the venom and will be a vampire. Yet she was saved by Edward when he sucked the venom.

The movie ended when Bella along with Edward, went to the prom together.

I LOVED THAT MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) but I think the characters didn’t really match from the book… the book explains it the best… but I personally prefer Twilight than HP…

I think twilight is the better one because it has to do with vampire's and the forbidden love between both worlds.
I like the movie because he kept trying not to hurt her when she came to the school and then when they started dating he did what ever it took to protect her even die trying to keep her safe from jasper.

Twilight is a little to "chick flick" for my taste.
Besides, does anybody else see the similarities between Harry Potter's story and Naruto's. Makes you think... :RBhot:
