Is Twilight the next Harry Potter

Is Twilight the new Harry Potter? I think that both movies and books have their fascination but each is different in quality and purpose than the other one and you can’t really compare the two because

J.K. Rowling has a much different purpose in her saga then Stephanie Meyer’s. People love the romance between Bella and Edward but this is romance whereas Harry Potter is a magical quest that is deeply linked with questions about life and faith. It’s a little of love but it’s more of a magical thriller that is philosophical and inheriting many elements of life that everyone can relate to.

Twilight doesn’t explore the question of life, faith, religion, morals, good and evil. Twilight is just a love story about two people, one a vampire and one a human falling in love and how the human is being attacked by the vampire around her but it’s not the plot of the movie. The vampire is just used to make the movie more interesting but it’s no way the plot of the movie. The movie doesn’t explore the multitude of problems and questions like in Harry Potter. Harry Potter is so complex that you would have to sit still and think hard to keep on reading the book.

It’s very difficult to read and hard to grasp for younger people than Twilight. Twilight is a little on the simple side. The Twilight movie is in no way a masterpiece like Harry Potter and we’re talking about budget, casting and time working on it. Harry Potter is considered a world’s class literature at this point and it’s one of the most widely read book ever in history and this is no the case with Twilight. Twilight has its own fascination but it’s definitely in another genre and not in the same genre as Harry Potter. Harry Potter is a work of 17 years whereas Twilight was written and made into a movie within a couple of years.

Horse Play With Daniel Radcliffe | Got Film Network

Daniel+Radcliffe+Equus Horse Play With Daniel Radcliffe The weekly look at all that’s in the works from Broadway to Hollywood and back again:

– For you muggles out there who couldn’t make it to London for his au naturale performance in Equus, Daniel Radcliffe promises that he will soon be blinding horses stateside by the end of next , if all goes well. Radcliffe’s Harry Potter uncle Richard Griffiths (Tony for The History Boys) will co-star.

– Like, ohmygod! Taking their cue from and Grease (both of which have been benefiting nicely from exposure in other mediums), Legally Blonde will soon be filmed live for a future broadcast on MTV. And if you so desire (and are willing to wear a pink shirt), you can even be in the audience.

– Speaking of Grease (and really, when are we not?), meet the revival’s scene-stealing Rizzo, Jenny Powers, and check out the track list for the newest cast recording, on sale October 2 ( here to pre-order the new album Horse Play With Daniel Radcliffefrom .).

Meanwhile, Grease: You’re the One That I Want hostess Denise Van Outen has (get this) been cast as the militant Maureen in London’s Rent. Not to be catty, but isn’t she a teensy bit past her prime mooing years?

– In more music news, original Maureen Idina Menzel has released a club mix of her big Wicked showstopper, the divalicious “Defying Gravity”. Click here to purchase the CD Horse Play With Daniel Radcliffefrom Amazon.com.

– As playwright Terrence McNally and stars Rosie Perez and Kevin Chamberlin chat up The Ritz, Seth Rudetsky dishes on his co-star/fellow “bathhouse patron” Ryan Idol. Seth also recounts his recent one-on-one with Xanadu hunk Cheyenne Jackson.

– Get ready to return to La Cage aux Folles, via a West End revival; no word yet if the star of the recent New York run, Gary Beach, will “strap on his fake boobs again” for it though.

Elsewhere, this is what the Episcopalians think about a high school musical about drag queens. Who woulda thunk it?

– Director Rob Marshall has revealed his star-studded, international cast for his big screen adaptation of Nine, although only one (Sophia Loren) is actually Italian.

– “They’re the Dreamgirls …” The originals, that is: Sheryl Lee Ralph, Loretta Devine and Jennifer Holliday will reunite in LA for a “one night only” benefit performance. And I’m telling you, I’m going … (OK, I’ll stop now.)

– Tours from around the world: 42nd Street in China, Little Shop of Horrors in the UK and 12 Angry Men in the US of A.

Billy Elliot, soon to be grande jeté-ing his way to Broadway, celebrates his 1,000th performance in London.

– Angela Arden has found her son. Charles Busch will be joined in Die Mommie Die! with current gay soap sensation Van Hansis (a.k.a. As the World Turns‘ Luke Snyder).

– In an unusual move, the producers of Young Frankenstein will reportedly not release the ’s weekly grosses. Hmmm …

The 39 Steps is stepping closer to Broadway.

– In our Hairspray news of the week, the title of this Playbill article says it all: “Love Finds Beaver Cleaver“.

– Do video games and show tunes mix? We’ll find out when The Last Starfighter takes to the stage.

– Remember the opening number of the movie Hair, with all the hippies dancing about, all Twyla Tharp-y like, in the middle of Central Park? Well, now you’ll be able to see that in person.

– While Claire Danes (who, having never seen My Fair Lady, must have had a really sad childhood) prepares for George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, John Lithgow mulls a return to Broadway with Arthur Miller’s All My Sons.

– I don’t know why but I don’t care: the San Francisco Jersey Boys will perform on next Sunday’s Emmy Award telecast. For a taste of the original Broadway Four Seasons, here’s their electrifying performance at last year’s Tony Awards.

What Ivy League schools would give you an experience most similar to that of Hogwarts?

Question by Lynn: What Ivy League schools would give you an experience most similar to that of Hogwarts?
Childish question? Yes probably but a friend asked me I didn’t have an answer. Would love to hear opinions.Which Ivy League schools look the most like Hogwarts? And which schools have the same or similar House system?

Best answer:

Answer by eri
Princeton has the most gothic look to it. I don’t know of any school that has few enough students to do a ‘house rivalry’ like Hogwarts. But all schools will try to instill a sense of community.

What do you think? Answer below!
