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”.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is here to create records

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the fifth installment fifth installment of Harry Potter Series.  This movie is a sequel to Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire and prequel to Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.  There are some changes as well. This movie is produced by David Hayman and David Barron. Harry Potter and Order of the Phoenix is also in the banner of Wornar Bros. This movie is directed by David Yeats. The screenplay is done by Michael Goldenbarg. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix are based on the name titled book by the author JK Rowlin. This movie takes a year to start form the past one. After this gap has gotten full grip and never break his concentration to become the highest grosser. This movie has grossed nearly $1 billion on the box office. This is my bad luck that I have this movie today.

Harry Potter and the Order of the PhoenixThe story of the movie is related to the novel. Those who have read the novel know the story of the movie. Those who did not read the book they do not know the story. The story is simple. Harry is in the fifth year of his school. He got better with his age.  This is clear that the evil lord Voldemort had returned. Harry saw him and Dumbledore belief him as well but the entire wizarding world are not willing to belief this. Some dementors come to the ordinary man’s world and tried to create a mass but somehow Harry manages to defeat them. Ministry of magic forcefully gives upon a case in the name of Harry Potter despite judging the fact of the unwanted visit of the magical deadly creatures. They are trying to throw out Harry Potter out of the school because of using magic in front of a muggle. Dumbledore fought the case for Harry and disappear without saying goodbye to Harry. There was a team called Order of the phoenix, which was formed as a result of mass killing of Voldemort and ended up unsuccessful. Now the order is reforming because they need to fight Voldemort. Minister of magic Fudge is very insecure and thinking that Dumbledore is assembling a team to battle for him against the ministry of magic. He appointed a new teacher in Hogwarts School. Professor Ambridge is very rude and mean by nature. She is a agent within the school working for Fudge. She is not helping anyone to learn magic. By this time Voldemort did took a place inside Harry and he is slightly controlling him as well. How Harry will learn magic and fight with Voldemort  is the story of the movie.

The movie is not only a gift for the Harry Potter fan but also a antidote for the Harry Potter fever as well. The cinematography is amazing along with the costume designing. The movie director Devid Yeats did a fantastic job. The performances become more realistic and manage to come through the hype. This movie is a must watch. Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoniex is a great joy to watch. You will not be able to stand up from your site. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoniex is worth 4.5/5.

Titanic is one masterpiece by James Cameron

Titanic is one of the most known movies of all time. It is hard to belief that someone in world did not see the movie. Yes today I have seen the movie and found out that the movie is totally full of emotions and love. Titanic have great portion that make everybody this movie. Titanic was the first movie that crosses the budget of 200 million dollars and it totally worth it. James Cameroon is the director of the movie and this movie is the first movie that crosses the 1 billion dollar mark. Titanic is a masterpiece for sure.

TitanicThe Royal steamer Titanic was the invention of intense contest among shipping lines of 20th century. Cunard revealed two superlative Liners. J Bruce Ismay who was the chief executive of White Star, discussed the making of three large Liners with William J Pirrie, the chairman of Belfast company Harland and Wolff. They would measure the length 882 and width 92.5 feet because they wanted to make the largest ship at their time. March 1909, the work of making the largest ship in the world started in the Harland and Wolff ship yard and continued until spring of 1911. There was no stop to working.

May 31, Titanic, the largest movable man made object in the world made its new way down the slipways. It was sailed its hull in the river Lagan in Belfast. Around one hundred thousand people attended in the launching time of the biggest ship which took over a minute and went off a problem.  The hull was pulled to fitting out dock where thousands of labours would waste most next year building the ship’s decks, creating her abundant interiors and installing 29 huge boilers that would power her two main steam engines.

There was a fault that is design of the Titanic, it was one fault. It was doomed from the start. The royal class ships featured a double bottom and fifteenth water-tight bulkheads with electric doors which could be ruling individually or simultaneously by a switch. But the water-tight compartment designed a wrong that have been a dangerous part of sinking the ship Titanic. To making the ship, Cunard owners boasted innovative safety features. The told that every thing may sing into water but Titanic never can do. It is very much saved than Nature.

The second fault is that, there were no sufficient life-boats on the giant ship. Only sixteen boats stand against 1178 people. Titanic could carry 3300 people including crews. But there were only sixteen. The reason behind less boat from total demanding is that discoverers said that it is unsinkable. Titanic, the largest passenger steamship sail its pull from Southampton in England on April 10, 1912. In it first voyage towards New York with 2240 passengers and crew, it met a tragic end. Just a heap of Ice reined the end of man’s boast.

To highlight this historical sinking, Cameron produced a film name Titanic. He wanted to show how the biggest giant man made creature sinks in the water with a simple thing that man suck to enjoy cool. He made it interesting and memorable. One can recollect this when they recollect the two name Jack and Rose. Only love story makes the sinking Titanic alive among the people. They talk about Titanic because of the unsinkable love. Or no body could remember its name. The Titanic is correct in name but all film is developed with the thought of producer. How can make it easy he knew well. As well as it was the big budget to create this film. How much day this film will broadcast, the sinking of the ship Titanic will remain in the man’s heart.

The movie surely deserves more than five within five. No rating for the movie. If I give starts to this movie it would be an insult for this one.

Speed 2: Cruise Control

Speed 2: Cruise Control is an action film created by Director Jan De Bont after the enormous success of “Speed” in 1994.It is released on 13th June’1997. It didn’t warrant a sequel of Speed. Here, the bus was replaced by a cruise ship and that is the scriptwriters have got a great narrow-mindedness. In this movie if the Ocean Liner doesn’t stop, everyone get killed same as the 1st movie if the bus stopped, everyone get killed and that’s a small twist between them.

Speed 2: Cruise ControlSpeed 2: Cruise Controls plot sets as having long since things off with her boyfriend, Annie (Sandra Bullock) and her new boyfriend Alex (Jason Patric) plan a romantic holiday on an ocean liner. When the reunited lovebirds embark on the Seabourn Legend, it is hijacked by irascible passenger, John Geiger, who’s a walking time bomb and is a mentally-unstable. A psychotic computer expert, he’s the designer of the Seabourn computer system. By hacking the ship’s computer system the disgruntled ex-employee (Geiger) intends to take over the ship, crank the engines up to full power and sets it on a collision course. While he takes over the ship, he orders the crew to evacuate, then aims the ship at an oil tanker, steals all the jewelry on board and escapes with goods. As they are trapped in the ship, Alex has to take him on and try to stop the ship, which they discover is programmed to sail in to an oil tanker. At the end of the film is the ship hitting the Dry Dock and crashes into the island Saint Martin.   

Keanu Reeve didn’t except the role for this second part because of its worse scripts.
In this film, Keanu Reeves’ absence can terribly be felt. His replacement is so colourless. Considering the dubious quality of the final product, this may be the wisest decision of the young actor’s career.

In the movie ‘Speed ’we looked lots of promising ingredients like action. It was an entertaining shake of pure adrenaline that took everyone by surprise. Jan De Bont was an instant success and Bullock became a hot commodity. But Speed 2 can be numbered among the worst second chapters ever made.

Watching speed 2: Cruise Control was just a money maker and embarrassed for everyone involved. Sure, they’re all being well-paid, but no one wants a $120 million flop on their resume. Critics had mostly criticizing its poor acting, unrealistic story and boring characters. One of the most criticisms was that the film’s setting on a slow moving cruise ship was much less thrilling than setting on a fast moving bus. Then there was the decision to include comedy in the film and in particular the way comical little scenes are intertwined with the action scenes didn’t work powerfully.

The film was a box office disappointment and appears headed for a box office disaster of titanic proportions. Speed 2 has already sunk for its poor entertainment and creativity.
Though there were too many feasibility problems, the film still not a failure. It earns less then half of its budget in the US and earned less then $265 million worldwide. The film won the award for Worst Remake or Sequel.

Now actor who acted in the movie, what can I say about them? They all are great in their own role. First Iron Man is performed by the actual Iron Man Robert Downey Jr. This one man took the show in one other level. His comic timing is amazing. He entertains with his cheesy one-liners. His action sequences are really great. He did his part as perfect as it could be. Chirs Evans is playing the role of Captain America.  His performance is really awesome.

She is tremendous in her role. Loki is the best played role in the movie. You will evilly love the character for sure.

The Avengers is the pure eye-candy form the beginning to the end. It is full with visual graphics. Every frame of fighting is epic. There is not a lose end in the movie. The direction is great and it is one of most well directed Marvel superhero movie for sure. Joss Whedon deserve applause for his tremendous work in making the movie.

In one word the movie is a MasterPice for any Super Hero movie. It goes with the hype. The Avengers deserve 4.5/5.

The actors of the movie did well. Legendary Liam Neeson was wasted in the movie. He does not have anything but yelling when he is giving his speech.

The movie do entertain only with it great visual work.  Before the ending the ending fight is really breathtaking. 

Good: visual effect is really good.

Bad: Without the visual effect the movie is nothing. The movie does not have a script.

You can watch the movie if you like action movie. Don’t expect much with the movie. The movie is an entertaining fear for those who likes kick ass action. The movie deserves 3.5 starts in 5.

Nirvana - One Legendary Band

“Nirvana” is a rock band of America constructed by Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic in 1987. They were singer/guitarist and bassist respectively. Their earlier activities hardly brought any success until 1989. Afterwards, Dave Grohl became a member and with his help; Nirvana became more and more advanced with a lot of successes.

nirvanaThey recorded their 1st demos in January 1988. Dale Crover, a new member, helped them but he left just after finishing the record. Then, Dave Foster was replaced as the 2nd drummer.  They unveiled their first single “Love Buzz” in November 1988. Foster left too. Chad Channing became another temporary member. Following that year, Nirvana’s first album “Bleach” was released. The recording cost of Blench was about $606.17. Jason Everman provided the whole money. Later, he joined the band as the 2nd guitarist in 1989. Blench also became favorite of college radio stations. In order to enhance the advertising of the album, they decided to make a national tour. But eventually, the tour was cancelled due to the disagreement with Everman. As a result, Everman left the band. Unfortunately, distribution and promotion of the first album failed to make further progress. Only 40,000 copies were sold. Later, with the help of Steve fisk, a producer, “Blew” EP was recorded. Afterwards, their sound development activities went to a full extent. They successfully developed and used the sound based on dynamic contrasts. In September 1990, Cobian and Novoselic found Dave Grohl who was their most expected and right drummer. Nirvana, consisting of three permanent members, signed to DGC Records in 1990. Their 2ndalbum “Nevermind” was released in 1991. Although they were not hopeful with that album but especially the single ‘Smell like Teen Spirit’ became a hit song. Because of that debut song of their 2nd album, Nirvana became quite popular and familiar to the whole nation as ‘alternative rock’. The band was also considered as ‘flagship band’ of Generation X. The expected number of copies to sell was 250,000 but DGC Records successfully sold near about 7 million copies of ‘Nevermind’ only in U.S.A. That’s not all. Soon, this album reached the number one position on the top chart. They performed their new song “Rape Me” at the MTV Video Music Awards. They were very lucky because they received “Best Alternative Video” award and “Best New Artist” award at the ceremony. Their 4th single “In Bloom” was released in 1992. Following that year, another single “Puss”/”Oh, the guilt” was released. Their 3rd album “In Utero” was released in 1993. Fortunately, it’s another album that claimed the number one position on the Billboard. Over 3.5 million copies were sold in U.S.A again. Nirvana decided to make a worldwide tour then; First tour in various subkingdom of U.S.A and secondly, in Europe. Their first was completed successfully. But in early 1994, Cobain became sick suddenly. Doctors said that it was the effect of taking excessive alcohol. The tour to Europe was cancelled. Instead of avoiding drugs, Cobain became addicted to heroin once again. He was convinced not to get used to the addiction otherwise that would be very harmful for his body. On 8th April 1994, Cobain made suicide as he was found dead with a shotgun at home. Novoselic and Grohl were shocked due to this unexpected and sudden death of Cobain. All the hopes and all the beliefs of Nirvana came to an end. But DGC didn’t. In November 1994, “Live! Tonight! Sold Out!!” (First full length video of Nirvana) was released. Next year, Nirvana won a Grammy Award for Best alternative Music album. DGC issued “From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah” that was a live album of Nirvana. In 1997, Grohl, Novoselic and Cobain’s widow Courtney Love constructed “Limited Liability Corporation” (LLC) with a view to observe all the projects related to Nirvana. All the unreleased singles, e.g. “You Know You’re Right”, “With the Light’s out” were released after 2002. Besides, 20th anniversary deluxe edition of ‘Bleach’ and ‘Nevermind’ were released in 2009 and 2011 respectively.

Nirvana sold over 25 million copies of their albums only in U.S.A, and over 50 million worldwide. Obviously, this band would become the greatest and the most popular in the history if Kurt Cobain was alive today, no doubt.
