If you caught our “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1″ premierelive stream last week then you’ve already been introduced to the fact that I am a pretty huge “Harry Potter” fan. I’ve been reading these books since I was 11 years old and seen each film the weekend it’s been released since “Sorcerer’s Stone” first hit theaters.
That being said, I’ve also kept up to date on the “Twilight” franchise, though I didn’t get into the books until after “Eclipse” was released. I thought “Breaking Dawn” was a pretty big letdown (so sue me, I thought Edward was going to reclaim his “soul” and return to his human form, allowing him and Bella to live happily ever after without her being changed to a vampire), and I haven’t been in love with the movies. So while my “Twilight” knowledge ranks up there with the best of them, I wouldn’t say I’m the series’ biggest fan.
Now that I have fully disclosed where I stand on the “Potter” versus “Twilight” debate, it should come as no surprise that I was pretty disappointed when I found out that Moviefone decided that “Twilight” did a better job converting the novels to the screen than “Harry Potter” did. Uhh, what? Andrew Sims from Mugglenetdebated Laura Byrne-Cristiano’s, the co-leading lady over at Twilight Lexicon. The debate was a little skewed because both Andrew and Laura are fans of their respective opposingfranchises (and both had/have fan sites dedicated to them as well!)… but somehow Laura managed to get the best of Andrew and give “Twilight” the lead.
