harry potter and star wars. oddly similar. discuss.

  • battle of good vs. evil: fight to the death.
  • one has light sabers and jedi mind tricks and the other has wands and magic spells.
  • they both have three good friends trio leads. harry, hermoine, ron. luke, han, leia. (han&leia. hermoine&ronald)
  • there are lots of fun creatures.
  • neither heros listen to their teachers.
  • their friends always help them out of jams.
  • voldemort. emperor.
  • um there are more. and i was excited about this non-too-shocking-or-hard-to-figure-out realization that i am sure many, many people have made before me, but now it has lost its luster.

the movie was good. i think it was probably better for the hard core hp-ers. it was somber - defiantely the most serious thus far. and there was minimal teenage love drama, which, as stated previously, is my favorite part. the effects and direction were pretty awesome i must admit! more news lata!

baby is JEALOUS that you have seen the movie. i am about to quit my job so i can catch a matinee. or maybe i'll wait until the weekend. does it make me dumb if i had to read the "hardcore hp-ers" part like three times before i realized you meant harry potter, to which this post is dedicated?

Harry had a little makey outey in this one... Good for the teenage-love people! :)
I totally thought the same thing. Light sabers and rays of light shooting from wands. The same. I enjoyed.

i've never seen a single star wars or harry potter. to many a travesty, to me, great success.

I'm going to see it on Sunday, I can't wait. You guys realize we're all like 26 years old right?
