I had this conversion with my nephews and brother Wednesday night after we came home from watching Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Now most people would argue that Harry Potter is better than Twilight, hey I happen to like both series, even though I am not liking HP at the moment.
But I think Twilight is better as it follows more on the book than Harry Potter does in the movies that are produced.
Since Goblet of Fire, the Harry Potter movies have gone astray seriously. It is like you are watching the movie version of a Harry Potter fan fiction version of the books. It is nothing close to what the books are about. They have drop some very serious key scenes that are critical to the plot and added scenes that are not even in the books themselves.
If you watched the latest Harry Potter film and then go read the book itself, you have major plot gaffs about how Harry is not to leave the Dursley's home and yet there he is wandering about the underground and subways without a bodyguard or at least one of the Order. In the Order of The Phoenix, Harry was picked up by the members of that order, in Half-Blood Prince(the Book), Dumbledore picked him up at the Dursleys, and took him to the home of the new potion master. Not in the underground. Major plot change there.
Twilight has not gone seriously astray like that. The movies basically stay true to the books themselves and that's what draws the people in with Twilight. It has plot that you can basically pause a scene on the movie and go to the books and find that scene or as close to that scene as possible. Though yes, they did add the fight scene, everyone would be wondering how it would go off and how did the Cullens defeat James.
But I find that Twilight is better than Harry Potter truthfully speaking. Twilight has plot, romance, adventure and angst while Harry Potter has adventure and angst but no serious plot or romance.
Agree or disagree with me on this?
