I'll start this post off with a little opinion: Harry Potter was way better than Twilight. Take a gander at today's infographic and judge for yourself, but I think it is obvious that Harry Potter was a better franchise. Okay, that is actually not true.
Twilight wasn't really my generation. I didn't grow up dressing up as vampires and going to the movies at midnight. I grew up dressing like wizards and going to the movies at midnight. I think there is something special about generational series. Let's take Star Wars for instance. Why was Star Wars such a huge hit?
The special effects in the old movies we're groundbreaking, but the timing of the release played a big part. Having the sequels come out relatively soon was genius. The fanbase grew and the fanatics came out of the woodwork. Judge for yourself on which series was best, I like them all.19.5k
