I like Harry Potter movies; I like the plot, the visual effects, and the actors – especially Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson. The problem was I couldn’t follow their dialogues when I’m in movie house. You know, they have British accent that’s sort of hard to comprehend for me. In addtion to that, I failed to watch (in theater) the Harry Potter 4 (The Goblet of Fire). So in a way, I kind of discouraged.
After I watched, I realized that I admire J.K. Rowling for being artistic, imaginative and creative writer. Doing Harry Potter series for a decade is really superb. You know, creating a world and fictional characters from scratch are hard to maintain, sustain and establish. I don’t want to compare, but I prefer her. Aside of course, that she has a humble beginning that’s really inspiring.
I don’t know, if it’s just I’m not watching television that’s why I couldn’t catch any Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince’s trailer but I’m sort of disturbed because online, it seems all I catch is about Twilight. Of course, I’m not saying that people should refrain of being crazy about New Moon, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart; I just wish to see massive promotions about HP. I hope that Harry Potter continuously succeed until it end because it’s awesome.
Anyway, if you’ll ask me which better writer is – its J.K.; which better story – Harry Potter, which better movie – Harry Potter, which has best lead stars/actors? Both!
By the way, a friend told me that HP has huge fan base over the years and that’s proven already. The sale of HP 7 was record breaking.
