Harry Potter VS The Twilight Saga Series.. Who is the Best?

Harry Potter is better than The Twilight Saga series. I am going to talk about the most loved series of time whether it is Harry Potter or Twilight. Both movies are great eye candy. But when it comes to the content which of the movie is going to take the battle on by their side is hard to say. As we all know both the movie has a great follower all over the world but the box office say Harry Potter is the sure winner. I am not going with the box office results but with the content of the both movies. By the content quality Harry Potter is the clear winner as well.
Harry Potter VS Twilight 
If I ask what Harry Potter I am sure everyone will try to give the death curse which is “Avada Kedavra”. We all know that Harry Potter is a franchise which was loved by everyone. I can say that every person with a brain are going to love Harry Potter movie, as they did not seen the movie till now. I think in this universe there is not a person who doesn’t seen Harry Potter where DVDs are available. It is not a movie but a era. Twilight is one of the most loved movies by the teen age girls.

Twilight is a movie which is based upon one the bestselling novel by Stephen Mayer. This is also great with content.  Twilight is like a love story that never meant to happen.  This is a love story between a vampire and an ordinary girl. This movie did not create a global fan following like what Harry Potter did.

In my openion Harry Potter is the best movie between them, why?

1.       Harry Potter starts with a beginning but twilight does not have a great start to the movie. The first part of the movie Harry Potter was truly successful in the box office and the audience loved form the heart. They relate with character of the movie. They become a part of the wizarding world. But Twilight is not that much successful but did a fair business in the box office for sure.

2.       As the story goes on Harry Potter teach what friendship is? And Twilight show what is teen love? I am saying Harry Potter is one step ahead because there is so many movies what is sharing the experience of teen love. Both the movie are unique because they do have new stories. Harry Potter is wizard and the love interest of Bella swan is a vampire.

3.       Harry Potter has so many emotional things in the movie but the Twilight focused on the love triangle. Harry Potter show how friendship become love and Twilight shows how love become sex. Harry Potter can teach you anything you need to learn as a human being but Twilight is here to show how to become pregnant in teen age.

4.       No content that can follow by any human is in Twilight movie. Twilight is a movie as movie not a special one. Harry Potter is one movie that comes in hundred years.

Don’t mind those who like more than Harry Potter. This is just opinion. Both the movies are great. Harry Potter is the best among them.

The movie is the sixth highest-grossing film series of all time ,it was heavily awarded and won 17 Academy Awards. The trilogy received wide praise for its innovative special and visual effects. 

The Lord of the ring: fellowship of the ring
After wathching Ralph Bakshi's The Lord of the Rings movie 1978, Director Peter Jackson first came to about the film. Jackson planned about to make a fantasy film that would be relatively serious and feel "real" with the new developments in computer-generated imagery following Jurassic Park. Saul Zaentz is the person who had held the rights to the book since early 1970s, pitching an adaptation of The Hobbit. Jackson  and his partner Fran Walsh make a team  to negotiate with Saul Zaentz. But Saul Zaentz did not have distribution rights to The Hobbit. Then Jackson decided to move ahead with King Kong. In 1997 they and began a six-week process of sorting out the rights. they had written their treatment  Two to three months later from a a synopsis of the book. They agreed upon two films and a total budget of $75 million. Jackson and Walsh began writing with Stephen Sinclair durin mid 1997. They wrote two film scripts within about one year. They already have decided to merge the two films into one as they came to know that Miramax unable to finance the budget. Jackson became upset by the idea of cutting out half the good stuff of the story. Robert Shaye viewed the video & then he asked why they were making two films when the book was published as three volumes.He really wanted to make the film trilogy. And then Director Jackson, Walsh and Boyens had to write three full  new scripts. Jackson took a more chronological approach to the story. To create satisfactory conclusions much effort was put. But there was some ambiguous things such as the battles and the creatures. Most characters have been modified for extra drama. The screenplays continued to evolve during shooting to further explore their characters. The character of Arwen, who was a worrier princess, was the most notable amongst all the legend character. The filmmakers employed Hollywood sword-master Bob Anderson to develop fight and sword choreography for the trilogy and he did awesome job.

Jackson hired long-time collaborator Richard Taylor to lead Weta Workshop on five major design elements: armour, weapons, prosthetics/make-up, creatures, and miniatures. His crew began designing Middle-earth at the same time in 1997. In many locations of  New Zealand's conservation areas and national parks principal photography for these three films was conducted.

The Lord of the ring: fellowship of the ringThe trilogy has around 3,420 effect shots. 260 visual effect artists began work on the trilogy. There was different editor for each film. John Gilbert worked on the first film, Mike Horton and Jabez Olssen on the second and Jamie Selkirk and Annie Collins on the third. Daily rushes would often last up to four hours. The music was composed, orchestrated, conducted, and produced by Howard Shore. Sound technicians spent the early part of the year trying to find the right sounds. Some were bought. Human voices were also used. The technicians worked with New Zealand locals to get many of the sounds.

 The trilogy was first released on 27 April 2000 in online and set a new record for download hits. The Lord of the Rings film trilogy is the highest grossing motion picture trilogy worldwide of all time.

In the early 1990, the band was formed as a cover band named “Village Idiots”. At that time they are playing other people’s song like Led Zeppelin and Metallica and that was so boring to them. After growing tired, Chad convinced his stepfather to land him $4000 to cut their first demo and Nickelback’s first release was a seven track extended play called Hesher in 1996. In the same year they released their first full length album ‘Curb’.

NickelbackNickelback officially took shape in 1996 and quickly set to work. Soon after ‘Curb’ Brandon left the band, to be replaced by Mitch Guindon. Guindon stayed only a little while and replaced by Ryan Vikedal. With this new formation, the band mates were managing them selves; Chad courted radio stations, Mike Kroeger handled distribution, Ryan booked shows and Peake maintained the band’s website. In 1998, ‘The State’ was released an independent label, which sold enough copy to get the band signed to the major metal label with Roadrunner and EMI. ‘The State’ was then re-released in 2000 by Roadrunner and EMI with huge commercial success and making a breakthrough in the USA as it reached platinum status while two of its songs “Breathe” and “Leader of Men” entered the top ten of Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks.

 Then they achieved typical success with the released of their 2001 album “Silver Side Up” where the most known hit song even today “How You Reminder Me”, an emotionally introspective, self-contemptuous song about a break-up. The song spent four weeks at number 1 both in US and Canada. Eventually the song ‘How You Reminder Me’ not only boosted “Silver Side Up” to the 2nd position of the billboard 200 but also helped the albums selling more than nine million copies worldwide. The song brought Nickelback to collect Four Billboard Music Awards of the year 2002 as the category of Hot 100 Singles Group. Some people considered the song as an anthem of sorts of memory of the American victims on the 9/11 incident.

Two years later the band released ‘The Long Road’ (2003). Its lead single was ‘Someday’. The Long Road scored very well as it sold more then five millions copies and Nickelback once again received the multi-platinum status. Three songs of this album “Feelin’ Way Too Damn Good”, “Figured You Out” and “Someday” all were gloriously include in the top three of Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks.

‘The Long Road’ (2003) was the last album for drummer Ryan Vikedal. Former 3 Door Down stickman Daniel Adair replaced Vickdal.At the same time Nickelback returned to Kroeger’s studio in Vencouver to begin work on another album.

The band released the album, “All the Right Reasons” in October 2005. The album proved to be Nickelback’s most popular effort to date, and remaining in the Billboard top 30 for over two years and selling over seven million copies only in U.S. The album produced five U.S. hot 100 top 10 singles namely “Photograph”, “Savin’ Me”, “Far Away”, “If Everyone Cared” and “Rockstar”.
