Dad: I got Popeyes!
Harry Potter and the Twilight Saga have reached bewildering popularity over the last decade. Both franchises boast bestselling books, international cult followings and a blockbuster series of movies, earning their creators and associates outrageous amounts of money.
But which is more successful, both as a financial powerhouse and cultural phenomenon? Here the team at money.co.uk puts both franchises through seven gruelling rounds to decide an ultimate victor… let the battle commence!
You don’t have to put it through anything, Harry Potter > Twilight, all day, everyday, until the end of time for all of eternity. The only thing Twilight has on Harry Potter is a higher first weekend gross at the box office, but that may very well go down this summer when Deathly Hallows Part 2 drops. Not to mention that even though they’ve had higher first weekend grosses, every single Harry Potter movie has outgrossed every single one of the Twilight films worldwide.
So I’m pretty much planning on not sleeping tonight and working on my essay all night, retooling every paragraph, sentence, and word.
Not sleeping tonight! Who’s with me!?
I really don’t understand people who TYp3 l1ke dIZ. I mean WTF is wrong with you? Do you really take the time to type out a sentence and switch out your “o’s” with zero’s? I mean honestly, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!
I saw a Facebook status that said something to the effect of “people with annoying Facebook statuses will get deleted” except it was typed out horribly with poor spelling, numbers, and upper cased letters in the middle and shit. I was SO TEMPTED to comment on the post and put “How ironic…” on their status, but I don’t know… despite how some of their statuses makes my brain stop functioning from how goony they are, I get a good laugh whenever I read some of their posts and that almost makes it worth having them as my friend hahahaha.
I’m just saying, can you type like you actually graduated high school? Or at least with semi-correct grammar that’s readable?
Just realized that my favorite movie of all-time, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, is turning 20 years old this year on July 3rd. Oh God I’m getting old!
On that note, can anyone tell me why T2 still looks better than a lot of the CGI movies that are over a decade newer than it?
I don’t know why it’s taking the USF bookstore so long to process my order. I could probably go into the bookstore by myself and pick up every book I need before they fucking process my order. It’s three douche bags in a warehouse sitting around not doing shit, pick my fucking books up!
One thing I hate about Tumblr, impossible to find old posts. I want my Xanga back lol *sigh*
You gotta love comments like “if Brokeback Mountain was about a straight couple it wouldn’t be as good” or “if The Kids Are All Right was about a heterosexual couple meeting their sperm donor no one would care” because that’s the whole fucking point of those movies! The former tackling homosexuality as a taboo in America and the latter about the modern family. That’d be like saying “if Goodfellas wasn’t about the mob…” or “if you couldn’t go into people’s dreams in Inception…” they wouldn’t be good. I mean if you’re going to come up with a problem with a film, come up with something that makes sense at least.
