Thought: Why I think “Twilight” is better than “Harry Potter”…

So, “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” will be out this week. Will I go see it?

No.

Why? Not only that I think that Harry Potter is the most overrated novel/movie franchise in the history of entertainment, I just think the stories don’t do anything to me, they don’t grab my attention, and I don’t see anything special about ’em. The truth is,  I just can’t get into this whole Wizard thing. It’s not really my type of storytelling

I like stories that are much more darker, which is one reason why I love the “Twilight” series more.

Both Harry Potter and Twilight have a few things in common. Both franchises were created by women, J.K. Rowling and Stephenie Meyer. Both have a huge amount of mainstream popularity. Both have a huge following of tweeny girls mostly.

As you can see, I’m no Harry Potter fan at all. I find J.K.’s stories boring. Stephenie makes her “Twilight” series more entertaining.

What is so entertaining about a couple of children becoming wizards to learn magic and go on these silly adventures that mean nothing?

I think “Twilight” is better stuff, because Stephenie make her storytelling more insightful and more detailed than J.K. Rowling’s. The “Twilight” series has more stories to tell than just a girl falling in love with a vamp. The “Twilight” series is easy targeted, the series get made fun of because of it’s tween content…when the funny thing is, “Harry Potter” is pretty much the same exact thing.

I have no interest in Harry Potter whatsoever. Tried reading the first book, couldn’t get into it. Tried seeing the first couple of movies, didn’t like ’em.

When Stephenie Meyer brought us, “Twilight”, I was impressed that Stephenie is trying to compete with J.K. The truth is, “Twilight” is bigger and more successful than “Harry Potter”.

Just wait until “Twilight: New Moon” comes out in theaters, it will destroy, “Half Blood Prince” in the box office.

Stephenie Meyer likes to make her stories more realistic and fun as if they were happening for real. Stephenie likes to explain in detail how people become vampires and werewolves, while Harry Potter doesn’t explain anything.

J.K. is overrated, pure and simple. I admire Stephenie’s work immensely. Those who make fun of Stephenie’s work because of her teen vampire views is a stupid idiot, in my opinion. I admire Stephenie’s way of trying to bring horror fiction for young kids. Of course, both Stephenie and J.K.’s work can be for people off all ages, not just for teen girls.

Sure, I get made fun of for liking the “Twilight” series, but I don’t care what anyone thinks. I enjoy whatever grabs my attention no matter what age audience the stories are aimed at.

  1. False Twilight is not more successful than Harry Potter because Twilight is meant only for teenage girls and some moms while Harry Potter is for Adults, Children, Teenagers, and Even Grandparents. I respect you like Twilight there is no problem with that but in reality Stephenie’s novel is overrated because the vampire falling in love witha human has been done so many times, and stephenie’s characters are 2 dimensional and stereotypical. Stephenie also did not give a very good explanation of her concept of her Vampires and her werewolves are not werewolves they are shapeshifters. JK Rowling describes her world in perfect detail and she created her world on her own, while stephenie did not have to do that much work and does not describe things in detail. Harry Potter tell’s a mature story and it deals with real world things like Death, and War it also tells people about morals bravery, loyalty, friendship, and doing what’s right in the face of adversity. Twilight is only a Love story and is quite immature because Bella is so Weak, Male dependent, And antifeminist she literally falls to pieces when Edward leaves and while I did feel bad for her I thought she was so weak as to become so depressed and jump a cliff to hear edwards voice. If Harry Potter is not you’re thing okay fine who cares but i Deeply Disagree with you’re argument

    1. LOL, knowing that I made this blog post a few years ago, this post is old. I’m not into Twilight anymore and I love Harry Potter now. Weird, right? Ha. Thanks though.
